Introducing: Gilbert

Well, if you’ve been following my blog, I talked about the stray kitten we found over at my Mom and Dad’s house. After careful consideration, we decided to give him a new home. David has named his new friend Gilbert (yes, from the Caillou show on PBS).
We took Gilbert to the vet last Saturday, and had him checked out. Dr. Beyer (the sweetest vet under the sun btw) checked kitty from head to toe. Except for a few fleas and ear mites, he is clean as a whistle. She also estimated that he is about 4 months old.
Unfortunately, our best guess is that he was part of a litter of kittens that someone was taking care of, but maybe they couldn’t find him a home and just dumped him on the side of the road. It’s sad to think about, but I’m sure not the first cat to have had this happen to. Fortunately, Gilbert’s previous owner picked the right street and house.
I have to admit, this kitten is so nice. Such a friendly disposition. And, of course my son is so excited because Gilbert fawns over him.
Gilbert’s temporary residence is the garage… we were waiting for his tests to come back to ensure he can’t give anything to the other pets. As of today he has a clean bill of health, so we will being transitioning him into the house this week after a good bath.
