Kitty come, kitty go

My cousin found a little kitten on Sunday morning, gave it to me on Sunday evening and I took her home that night. I bought her a baby bottle and looked up kitten formula recipes (she’s barely 4 weeks old).

But I have to give her away. Our place is too small and I just can’t give her enough attention in the few hours that I’m at home. My cousins are here for vacation but the kitty will go stir crazy when they leave. We’re all sad. It came to me last night, when she peed in my bed (she was too tired to move to her litter box – though she knows how to use it).

I am very, very sad. The only good thing is that one of my cousin’s relatives, who works in her house, fell in love with the kitten but couldn’t keep her because she was promised to me. So I’m giving the kitten to him.

But oh dear, I am sad.

I love your blog!
I have a contract to work in Kabul for 10 months, and I'm supposed to leave in 9 days... but I don't have the visa yet, so we shall see. I've found your thoughts on life in Kabul to be quite informative. I'm looking forward to my own experiences, and wonder if they may be similar to yours :-)

Sorry about the kitten... I've had my own kittens in a variety of countries and have then had to give them up and hope that they are well and happy... you have my sympathy :-)

Kitty is doing well.... the other cat in the house thinks it's her kitten, so she has taken the responsibility of taking her by the back of the neck and putting her in the litter box. Though, yesterday the kitty decided to poop in our bathroom..... phewwweee, what big smell from such a little kitty. :)

Sorry to hear about kitty, but glad kitty already has a new home with someone you know. Also glad kitty is not peeing and pooping at my house.

Well, I think I'm getting the kitten back.
