A little wanderer comes home?  
I want to thank everyone that's been helping out these last few days. You've helped more than you ever know. *hugs all*

So, I guess that I should write about something dear to my heart. The other day, I found a kitten. Not more than two weeks old and with a cold, but being lovingly handled by a bunch of kids whose elementary school she'd been dumped in a box in front of. A student's mother gave me a bunch of supplies for taking care of a kitten, and so I went home after a long day of work and other obligations with a cute little bundle of fluff, who couldn't stop sneezing. ^^;;

So far, it's been a battle to get her to start eating and using the litterbox (in this case it looks more like a diaper on the floor, since she's too small for a proper litterbox, but that's what the mother said is appropriate for kittens). And since then, she's really taken to Ami and I! She cries whenever she's left alone, and sometimes when she's not, and cuddles and gets in your face constantly. She's definitely got some kind of cold thing (who doesn't? I sure do ^^;;) but we can't afford to take her to the vet at the moment, so Ami's friend is going to send us the leftover medication from when her kitten had the same symptom. So I hope that it arrives and she gets well soon. She's a cute little thing, though. ^^ I've wanted a cat for the longest time, and even though this house doesn't allow pets (which of course they didn't tell us until movein day, so we assumed otherwise since we'd asked, and seriously I don't care either way), we've now got a new little housemate in the form of a gray ball of fluff. ^^

She doesn't have a name yet... Anybody have any good suggestions? Help me name her! ^o^ (I'd like to stay away from japanese-sounding names though)

OMG!!! OMG!!! This is one of the cutest things ever!!!
I personally LOVE cats!!! I had tons of cats up until now ... and I want one again (;___;) .... KYAH!! Soooo~ cute!!
I hope the medicine will work! :/

Unfortunately I´m not good at giving animals names XD sorry! XD

*stares at the photos again* ... awwww~!! ^-^
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on June 10th, 2007 01:27 pm (UTC)
Yeah, I've been wanting a cat for a long time myself. =^____^= I grew up with cats and for years I've lived without one, so I'm really happy to welcome a new cat into my family. ^^ (Though I prefer adults, but she'll grow up eventually)

I'd suggest taking her to the vet Jamie, it might cost some money but if she has the sickness that usually all the newborn kittens have it might get worse quickly, especially since she is so young.
Having had 3 kittens who got the same, I know what it means >_<
If she continues to sneeze take her to the vet, or at least for now check the prices if she has what I think she has I will bring some medicines too next month (but I hope she will be fine for that time)
Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on June 10th, 2007 01:22 pm (UTC)
I hope that she'll be fine on her own. If not, there's really nothing that we can do for her, since I only have about 5,000 yen and will need most of that for train money and to pay for food this week. It's so tight. But Ami's friend is sending us medication and that should be able to help her. She's been getting a little bit better every day and she's eating and playing now, so I think that she's going to be alright in any case though. ^^ But thanks for worrying about her. Any name suggestions?

ALICE!

Like... Alice in wonderland who gets lost... Or the baby pig in Alice in Wonderland who's abandoned. :)

*melts* She's such a cute little thing! I don't have much advice on looking after kittens, but hopefully she'll get better soon!~ Hnn, she's still a small thing... so as long as no neighbour complains, I don't think the landlord will know that you guys've got a pet around XD

Gomen, no great ideas for the little dear's name... somehow caramel and princess got stuck in my head XD

Can I have the bigger version of the picture with her on my computer chair?

Hi-chan (火ちゃん)hinoai on June 10th, 2007 01:31 pm (UTC)
Yeah, but I really have no choice. I have absolutely no money to take her to the vet, not a single extra cent for at least another three weeks for myself even. So she's going to have to survive as it is. I'm sure that things will be alright, so don't worry. She's at least getting food here, so she's better off than being on the street anymore.

So cute and small!! I hope she'll get better. T_T I have a kitten too, and he had quite a bad cold at first. I made sure he's always warm and gradually he started getting better without any medications. (^-^) As for names, how about "comel"? It means "cute" in Malay. (^-^)
百加☆: fujinitaspitas on June 10th, 2007 01:35 pm (UTC)
Aw, she's so cute! I hope she gets better soon! As for names, how about Snorkel? I dunno why, but that's just what popped into my head after reading her story and seeing her picture ^^;
miss_thrillz on June 10th, 2007 01:43 pm (UTC)
I tried to name my cat, but we never called him by it... so he only responds to "Mr. Kitty".

...and dog, because my dad kept calling him that.

SO CUTE. But yeah, if you could somehow get the money take her to the vet. >_< It might be a cold but you never know.. And be careful with someone else's medication. You never know their reaction to it, I know with my dogs they can't have each other's heart worm pills because of breed, size, age and other things.

But for names? Check it's gender out first. XD My friend just got a kitten too and they named it Aizumi-chan and took it to a vet...and found out it's a boy.. I can't understand the mistake but I feel bad for that kitty now. For some reason I think she looks like a Hannah but I don't know her personality.
shiroi@delonixshiroirukaze on June 10th, 2007 01:51 pm (UTC)
aww~ she looks so cute when she's sleeping in the first pic *melts*
usually kittens are more tolerated than dogs so it should be fine with the management as long as there are no complaints from the neighbours

ah and yes, vaccinations. i heard japan has one of the strictest rules on rearing a pet so it's best to find out more info on that.

...how about fluffy? because she looks like a big round of furball to me ^____^ good luck!!

One of THE main issues with "no pets" in Japan is the fact that cats will very often destroy the tatami mats. They're just irresistible for scratching.

YMMV, of course, but it's common.

My own cats are "Cat #1 and Cat #2," so I can't help in the unique name department :) There's always the bog-standard "Misty" for grey cats...

oooh, cats :)

How about Isabella?
Lin: Katou Kazuki - prettyboylin on June 10th, 2007 02:05 pm (UTC)
It's a REALLY bad idea to give her another pet's leftover medication - meds are usually intended for a specific breed and age and are specifically dosed, and might not even be helpful for what she has and thus could make it worse. Giving her the meds might very well kill her. She really needs to see a vet, arent there like charity organizations in Tokyo that might take a look at her? Pets are expensive though, that's just how it is, but you can't take one in and just try to improvise. Especially if she's only two weeks old, they're not even supposed to be away from their mothers yet at that age, she's way too fragile and *needs* specific treatment.
aionwatha: Matt - greetings bitchesaionwatha on June 10th, 2007 02:56 pm (UTC)
Oh? And are you going to give us the money to take her to the vet, or try to browse through Japanese information sites for a volunteer organisation that would help her for free?

If so, bring it on, I'm waiting. If not, what is the point of your comment? Don't you think we don't know she needs to see a vet?
