Scooter Is A Healthy Kitten

I took Scooter to the vet today, to make sure he was a healthy kitten, and indeed he is. He weighs 1 pound 4 ounces, has a normal temperature, and may be less than 8 weeks old, which would help explain his meowing whenever I'm not right by his side. Although I think he's meowing less (or else it's turning into white noise, I've gotten so accustomed to it).

I promised Scooter if he did something sufficiently cute, I'd post a video along with this report. I put one of his toys out for him, but naturally that was of no interest to him.

Instead he found two other things to play with, neither one of which would have been my choice. The bag was a gift from one of the schools I visited this fall. The mini carnation was in a vase on the dining room table. Soon Scooter will be knocking over vases, and I won't think he's nearly as cute as I do now!

Wow, you expect kittens to be adorable, but this is a whole new layer of adorable. I could watch him do that all day :)

Hi Becky-

I couldn't resist. I posted Scooter playing hockey in my kitchen.

He's definitely learned all the cute tricks!

Becky said...

Very cute, and I don't think you could have given him a better name :)

Careful Scooter! You don't want to lose that toy behind the fridge! What a cute little kitten! Congrats!!

Hi Dawn and Happy May!

Scooter's lost both of his favorite bottle caps in the kitchen, one under the stove somehow and the other, who knows where.

Yet somehow my spring cleaned apartment is now rife with kitten toys. I can't walk two feet without stepping onto something cute and furry.

Alas, occasionally the cute furry thing I step on is Scooter himself!
