Bruno, my baby

Since my kitty decided to sneak into my last photo, I decided to post pictures of him here. A little over two years ago, someone at my hubby's job discovered a litter of tiny kittens. They accidentally scared off the momma kitty, who never returned. Hubby called me and asked if I wanted one. How could I say no to this adorable face?



We took Bruno to the vet the day we brought him home. The vet said that he looked healthy but that there was nothing she could do for him. She warned us that the kitten may not survive without his mother but we were determined to try. The vet told us that he would open his eyes around a week old. A week later, Bruno opened his eyes. That means we brought Bruno home when he was only a day or so old. Poor baby lost his mother so early!



Once his eyes opened, he was a total fuzzball. Extremely curious, needy, and loveable.



I'm not sure why, but Bruno learned to fall asleep in the weirdest positions.



He spends a good portion of his time on my desk when I'm sitting here. He loves falling asleep with his head on my keyboard, which makes it really hard to use the computer!



Showing me how blogging is done:



This is my most recent picture of him, taken last week. I somehow managed to take over 1,000 photos of our cats in the last two years! But I can't help it! They are so cute!

He's my baby, stinky breath and all. I can't imagine being allergic to cats! :(

Cassandra,

Your Bruno is sure a "big boy" now. :) I'm glad that you were able to keep him alive despite the fact that he was "motherless."

He's a very big boy and unhappy because he's on a diet! ;)

That is one of the sweetest stories ever! How wonderful that you were able to save him -- saving baby kittens is very difficult, especially that young. He turned out to be a beautiful big boy -- and is obviously very lucky to have such a great mom!
