Hercules

Look what we're looking after!! Isn't he beautiful!! (actually he's not but beauty is in the eye of the beholder). He is five weeks old (was found when he was just one day old) and weights only 220 grams. He's has just learned how to play - which I think is the funniest thing I have ever seen!! I'm looking after him for two weeks on behalf of Soi Dog Rescue (I thought he had a home to go to - turns out that he doesn't!! Oooooooohhhhhhh I'm not sure I'm going to be able to part with him!!)

  1. After that trip to the orphanage I knew you'd end up adopting something. If not a kid, a dog. Well, I suppose I shouldn't be surprised. After all, you did adopt a dalek!

  2. He's not a dog - he's a cat!! (Not that you can really tell from the photo.....actually I'm not even sure if he's a he!!)

    A female cat called Hercules - well, we once had next door neighbours with a female cat called Brian so Hey!!

  6. What a wee cutie! Cat-in-a-basket!He might just grow into his (or her) name. I wouldn't want to part with him either. How do you think I got Spot the Cat? OK, he adopted me, but you get my drift.

  7. Alex - He could only ever be a really really small starter....not really worth it :-)

    Katwomen - You will be thrilled to know that Tomato is getting two cats from the cat and dog home. (So I reckon he's really hoping the red faced look catches on - you know how allergic he is!!)

  8. I just love the bug eyes and tiny little feet with his claws. He looks almost like a little mouse! I remember when kittens were that small I'd be afraid of losing track of them or stepping on them, but they sure let you know they're around. Their tiny teeth are SO sharp when you rub their tummies and they scratch and bite. Yaouch!
    Good luck giving the cute little critter up - they grow on you fast, so beware!
