Our new kitten, Marcus

On Black Friday, my wife went shopping for a new kitten, to replace the cat that died about a year ago. We ended up with Marcus, who was being offered for adoption by volunteers at the local PetSmart (they weren’t sure which shelter he was coming from—probably not the closest one).

He’s been inspected by the vet and is being treated for ear mites. He also has a minor virus infection, so we are keeping him away from our older cat for a while, and being careful to wash hands between petting the cats.

It was hard to photograph Marcus, because he would not stay in one place long enough for me to frame and snap the photo.

I did manage to get one shot of Marcus in an uncharacteristic resting position.  You can just see the smudge of lighter fur on his throat.

Marcus reminds me a bit of Freya, a kitten we had 10 years ago—I just hope that Marcus is healthier and lives longer than Freya did.
