After about eight months of discussing the merits of a third cat and deciding it was too much of a risk, we fell in love with a new little boy named Tab Hunter this weekend and brought him home anyway.

What swayed us was a long conversation with his foster daddy, an incredibly knowledgable and caring man who blew me away with his knowledge of cat health and behavior. We knew the kitten had been raised well, was not aggressive, and had all the behavior qualities we were looking for in a new family member. Plus, Kitten Rescue has a fantastic return policy if things just don’t work out. They value good, safe, happy homes over all else, and we do, too.

So please help us welcome Finley (“Finn”) Hunter Reese! He’s about 13 weeks old and loves to play, purr, and follow his new brothers around with wild-eyed joy.

We’ve had the Feliway running for a few days, and so far the boys are adjusting well. Cairo hisses and growls (totally normal), but is not aggressive, and Oslo is intensely curious and has already tentatively started to play. So far, so good.

A typical tableau, with Finn at its heart:

    1. Aw, thanks so much, Steph. We felt like we had more love to share, and that our kitties could use another playmate. Hopefully it will all work out.

    1. So far, I seem to be obeying his commands admirably. :-D And the other dudes are slowly coming around — no fighting or bloodshed so far!

  1. "Finn" — "Glee?" Three — or rather 5 — is a wonderful number! Another friend just took home a second cat and The Gary Monster and I are starting the process of being picked by a cat. Someone I know runs her own shelter, but if that doesn't click, I'll visit your place.

    Just be patient.

    1. Not a Glee reference — we both just love the name. (Chris likes to call him "riley Finn" when he's being crazy — a Buffy reference.) And I can't recommend Kitten Rescue highly enough — they're fantastic!

  2. Finn is a great name just not as geographical as Cairo and Oslo. I looked at the adult males at Kitten Rescue — how did you make it out with just one cat? I want them all!!

    Has Finn been helping you type or taken any other chores?
