    As some of you know we are in the middle of a move to a new flat. Got the internet working and had movers come yesterday.
    Then last night, a friend came by with a box, I thought had shoes. It had a kitten. They had told me they found it about a week ago and it was stuck in a crevice between an abandoned building and the pavement. I thought they planned to keep him.

    Biggles loves the kitten, he first followed him sniffing and then they played together. The kitten is tiny, the vet they saw put him about six weeks when found.
    So maybe now eight but I think closer to seven. His eyes look green.

    They didn't have litter for him at their flat but I put some in a box for him in the bathroom and he used it overnight but had watery poo overnight and when I put the box this morn.

    He was sleeping on the cushion I gave him when I went in the bathroom this morn and now he and Biggles are up and playing

    They said he was health checked, deflead and had injections but I need to see his record from the vet and pass it to my vet.
    I said we would keep him on a trial basis to see how it goes.
    So this is Jack:

    Oh I didn't even think of that doh, but yes, Jack in the box:)

    @MilleD
    A local pet shop but Zooplus might have them. The same brand (will check the name for you) sell also in the same material, small loungers and fish shaped flat ones. Biggles had an older round one in our other flat, that he slept in it on the bed, as well as for scratching and occasional chewing.

    Here are some better pics, I put him on the window sill, his eyes look bluish green in room lighting.

    Until I get him to see my vet for her estimate, any guesses on how old you think he may be?

    So tiddly and fluffy! He does look young though. Does that mean he might get need some kitten milk to supplement him? See what the vet says and get proof of worming etc. Lovely little lad though xx

    What a cute little surprise :Cat
    Hard to say from the photos but if his eye colour is changing I would say 7 or 8 weeks.

    We were moving things by ourselves by taxi and metro, used movers on Sat and will use the moving company again Tues then should be in the clear.:Cat
    Apparently, OH knew the kitten was coming last night so agreed but I didn't know he knew, so all well on that front.:cool:

    @Emmasian
    Kitten milk good idea, I didn't think of that. He does look tiny to me. My thought had been to get a kitten about three months to six months. Not really prepared as didn't know he was coming but he is friendly and they play well together.:Cat

    Ah ok, the eye color change is gradual, that makes sense, thanks. He is probably still transitioning the color then. The vet estimated he was six weeks when they found him. The vet on the second visit said eight weeks but small for eight weeks in size.

    Awww this is the best news ❤️❤️

    Welcome home Jack and congratulations to my fluffy beautiful butty, Mr Biggs, on becoming a big brother xx

    Congratulations SC on your youngest son ❤️ He is just as beautiful as his big brother Biggles and has landed on his paws finding a home with you all xxx

    That’s lovely that OH decided for you’s :) took some of the pressure off you of finding a kitten, sometimes we can overthink things too and talk ourselves out of it so OH has taken that stress off you too and above all what an amazing surprise from him to you xxxx


    Congratulations to you all ❤️❤️❤️❤️
