Introducing the Mighty Margaret!

Hee! Looks who lives with us now:





My old boy is not overly thrilled by Margaret's tail fetish!:



Margaret is seven weeks old and she's lived here for two full, anxious days. She didn't poop until this morning and she's being really picky about her food but she'll settle down soon. She's totally unafraid of anything and completely clumsy! We love her to bits already. Our house is catfull again!

Thanks Jared! She pooped again! I'm so frantic about her because she's tiny and I don't really think she should be away from her mum yet. Isn't my carpet the worst thing you ever saw! I'll replace it soon, I'm so ashamed!

What a sweetie! I've been making squeeky cat talk noises at her pictures. So cute, she is. But wait, she poops?

seven weeks isn't too bad. we get younger ones at the shelter that we have to feed with bottles. usually we don't adopt them out until they're around 2 months or at least 2 pounds.

i think as long as you baby her and give her extra lovin' and attention she'll be fabulous!

Oh she's getting loved alright! We are having to remind ourselves that she needs quiet time too. And yes, Arantxa, she poops. Lots. but it's cute poo and she steps back into it EVERY time, so there's a lot of trips to the sink to get paws washed! It's all fun!

Very OT!

So sorry for posting here but I read your comment over at Twisty's and just wanted to be certain that you read my response.

In teacher education we learn that the kind of behaviour that you described can be an indication that the child has been abused or exposed to things they shouldn't have. Not always, but if I were you I'd keep my eyes open for what is or has been going on around this child and maybe try to talk to him or his mother about it.

Sparkle: she's called Margaret because I wanted somwething that sounded regal and dignified, but could be shortened to something common and cute. And we have had two cats called Martha and I didn't really want to do it again but I love the name, so Margaret kind of fitted the bill!
B: thanks for pointing out your coment. I had missed it and would be very interested in what you wrote. The children I was talking about are all grown up now but the boy is troubled and what you say makes a lot of sense to me now. Thanks for your input. Pippa x
