She's here!  We brought her home after work on Wednesday.

We have a front sun room that has a sliding glass door and we set up her little kitten stuff out there, to keep her separated from Sydney.

The next morning we took her to the vet.  Her mother was a 9 month old stray cat, so we were a little worried about feline leukemia and other scary diseases, but little Alabama checked out just fine.  She yowled a bit in the car, but did very good with the exam.

She does have fleas, unfortunately, so we are keeping her in her own little room until we can make sure they are all gone.  She seems comfortable and happy.

Kittens don't need no stinkin' gravity!

She can be a bit talkative, which is interesting since Sydney, being a Siamese, talks a lot.  It could get pretty noisy up in here.

Did I hear someone say catnip?!

She seems very intelligent, and she's been energetic and playful and friendly. Sydney has hissed at her a few times from the other side of the sliding glass door, and she just calmly looks at Sydney like, What's up?  She ate her kitten food and drank her water and used her tiny litter box right away.  It was like she was just waiting for us to come and get her.

Overall it was a great birthday present for Greg, his heart is completely and utterly taken by this tiny little ball of fluff.



  1. Ohhhhh! I love Alabama! I am sure Sydney will adjust; especially if little 'Bama was around other kitties. My youngst addition came from a place of many kitties and he very quickly let everyone know he was going to love them whether they liked it or not. Now everybody loves Loki:)
    Anyway, she is adorable and I predict many meowy happy years for you all together.

    1. Sydney is already starting to come around. She'll still hiss occasionally, but she played with Alabama for a little while yesterday. She's not a big fan of Alabama attacking her tail, though :)

      Alabama was around other kitties, in addition to her litter-mates and her mother my co-worker had a couple of other cats. She seems to be very smart and aware, too.

      And cute!


Tell me what you think!
