View Full Version : Introducing Harley (several pics)

I thought I would introduce you all to Harley my newest little kitty :love:
Harley has been with us just about a month now...but how we got him is a sad story.
Harley's mom was a stray cat who ended up having kittens in our neighbors garage. She was a good mom and took care of her babies (she only had 2) the best she could. Our neighbor and I both would help with feeding mom. The weekend of July 4th I was driving down to my son's karate class and was soo sad to see that the poor mother cat had gotten hit on the road. All I could think about was those poor little kittens sitting in that garage waiting for mom to come back. They needed help! I managed to catch Harley later that afternoon but his sister was way too fast for me and the kids. My neighbor finally managed to catch her about 5 days later and she now has a good home with a friend of his and is named Emma.
It didn't take him long to get used to living in the house and it only took a day for Tigger (our middle cat) to decide that he really, really loved his new friend. He still gives him a little forced bath everyday....it's sooo cute to watch.
Here's Harley taking a little nap... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v83/mamacatwc/P7150092.jpg
Here he is playing with his favorite buddy.... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v83/mamacatwc/P7060088.jpg
And after you play you always need another nap... http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v83/mamacatwc/P7160094.jpg

OMG they are sooo cute! I love kitties. Thanks so much for posting the pictures! I rarely see cats anymore now I'm in my new apartment. They are forbidden :(
It's so funny how they get along! When my mom took in two little stray kittens a couple years ago, the older cats would smack them if they got too close (we kept their nails trimmed, it's ok). Go figure.

Oh they are too cute! Don't tell my husband, but I sometimes wish that fate would drop a kitten on our doorstep :wink: . I needed my kitty fix, thank you! :flower:

If my dogs find out about all the kitty ogling I've been doing lately I shudder to think what they'll do :scared:

Faolin Ruadh: I was very worried about how they would get along when I brought Harley in. Tigger is so used to being king of the house that I thought he would HATE the idea of another kitty in here. (We do have an older cat also (Misty) but she needs to be seperated from all the other animals so she lives in our downstairs. She just doesn't like other animals and will be very mean to them - Tigger has a scar on his nose to prove this!) Tigger pouted for a day and then 'adopted' the kitty. I never dreamed he would be so sweet to Harley. He doesn't get even get upset when he's laying there relaxing and Harley comes along to jump on his head. Tigger is a very special kitty :love:
Mariah: You are soo right! Misty, our older cat, I got from a home for stray and abused cats. Tigger, our middle cat, was also a rescue kitty. He was just a kitten when we got him but his mom had him under a trailer in our neighborhood. They are both such sweeties (well, Misty is very sweet to people - not other cats and dogs) so I'm sure Harley will turn out wonderful.
Thanks to everyone - I will pass along your compliments (and hugs and chin scritches) to Harley. But, you know, I suspect he already knows he's pretty darn cute LOL.

It's funny... about rescuing cats. I am glad that people like you folks are around. It's really funny that my dad discouraged my mom and I from hanging out at the local animal shelter anymore because we kept bringing home cats who's time was up there. At one time, we had FIVE cats! We are both bleeding hearts :) It makes me happy to see other people who care so much for little animals :inlove:

Give them both kitty hugs!

Give them both kitty hugs!
LOL Now that is any easy request!! And Tigger really loves hugs and being held. If I'm standing still and (in his opinion) not doing anything he will run right up the front of me like I'm a tree so that I will hold him! Harley isn't quite so cuddly yet but then again he's only a couple months old and still pretty wiggly when he wants to play.
