This Is What I Did.....

I felt really very lonely here with Karl being on safari...
So I went to the local pound which is just overflowing with cats and kittens (foreclosures, students leaving for the summer, etc.) and I rescued a kitten. The maid had gotten a "Help! Adopt a kitten" sheet some days ago with lots of pictures of cats in jail, and one of the pictures was this:


Yes, I got the guy who the arrow points to. Because he is a ginger cat like me! O.k. I may be a very diluted ginger cat but check out my tail and my ears... And yes, I hiss at him constantly. But he already knows that it is just all show and no teeth - no pun intended....
I hope Karl will not be mad...

Imagine something like this would happen, oh my, oh my, what did I do...


And the kitten does the Monty Q.! So I entered him in the contest and I will introduce him to you now with the "outtakes" from our photo session. I used Emil's camera but I am not as good as he was. Yet.
Here is Tintin, the new kitten at The Cat Realm:


(Don't worry, he only goes out fully supervised by a human right now until he is bigger!)




And to tell you how we pronounce all our names I had the maid do a Voki recording for you, she'll say:
Mrs. OZ, Karl, Tintin, Emil and Anastasia


Get a Voki now!

Congratulations! Tintin is such a cutie!!! How lucky that you two found each other in this big wide world! We cannot wait to get to know Tintin and head out for adventures, of course when he is not such a baby. Did I miss if Tintin is a boy or girl?????
Love to all.

Concatulations!!!! We are so happy for you all! Your little Tintin is a BEAUTIFUL kitten! We can not WAIT to get back from Africa so that we can meet him in person. We won't tell Karl and Ruis as we don't want to ruin the suprise!

Love,

Alasandra said...

Tintin is adorable. Our human bean would have had trouble coming back with just one.

We love your markings Mrs. Oz. You look like a Turkish Van, with those markings. Mommy had never heard of Turkish Van's until she got us. We kinda fit the description but we have too much ginger and black. Because we are so active and literally run around until we pant like dogs then flop down ( a characteristic of the breed) Mommy thinks we may have a Van ancestor in our family tree.

Ariel said...

Oh Mrs. Oz, how could Karl be mad about such a face! Welcome TinTin - we can't wait to see more of your adventures (and Qs)! It looks like Emil sent a perfect addition.

Jan's Funny Farm said...

Oh, my! We are so relieved. We were afraid you had done something TERRIBLE, Mrs. Oz. But you've done a good thing and we think Karl will be happy to have another brother to get into mischief with.

So, Tintin, welcome!

You received an award today! You can pick it up at my site, or check your email.

Moki said...

Oh wow! Tintin is so cute! We are particularly fond of the name as well, being as it was one given to my oldest cousin Clinton, by my youngest cousin Casey, who use to go around calling him Tintin, since he could not fully pronoun Clinton...
:)

Shaggy, Scooby and Scout said...

TinTin is adorable!!!!!! We just know he will like it there with you guys! And kittens keep things pretty lively so there will be no end to the babysitting & snoopervision you will have to do. He does an awesome Monty already!

Karl & Ruis said...

Karl: OHHH ALL LIONS!!! WHO IS THAT???

Ruis: I think you have a new younger brother, love! And I new brother-in-law. :)

Karl: MRS. OZ!?!?! What did you do WITHOUT my consent??

Ruis: She doesn't hear you!!!!!!!
But, don't worry, sweatheart, Tintin looks a nice and cute young boy, I'm sure you will have fun playing with him.

Karl: Hmm, maybe..., but I DO a far BETTER Monty Q!!

Ruis: You do? I've never seen you doing a Monty Q!

Karl: Come on, I'll show you.....;)

Ruis: PurrrRRRRrrrrrrrrs.......

Derby said...

Welcome Tintin, you are truely a Gorgeous Ginger. You have a good home so enjoy your adventures with Karl.

Skeeter, LC, and Ayla said...

Cool! Welcome, Tintin!

Tigmut'hep said...

Oh Tintin looks like a small version of that cat Garfie that my treacherous boy has gone off to visit in Canada! Watch that he doesn't attract young boys who are already fully owned by a cat...

Oh ok Isis says I have to tell you he's *very cute* and she wants to groom him!

wildcatsthree said...

Oh how beautiful TinTin is! And he looks like he's settling in nicely already. What a lucky fellow to have found such a good home.

Congrats on your beautiful new friend! Tintin is very cute. And "fulliage Monty" is a clever term.

I never answered your question about Kanchan! He is a buddhist and he is doing a 3 year deal with NO contact whatsoever. I think it's because his family runs/owns a temple. That's why we're so worried about kid sister Caitlin.

The Crew said...

Well hello, Tintin. Aren't you a handsome fellow! Welcome to our cat blogging community.

mum of critters said...

ConCATulations! I am so happy for you and for TinTin! What a lucky puddy tat - to get picked for such a wonderful loving home.

I am very happy for you! I've always wondered how you pick a cat to get a cool temperament. I know how to pick dogs and am learning rabbits but cats still mystify me!
