Introducing: Little Man

Actually, his name is Satchel. After one of my favorite types of purses. Or maybe after the great Negro League pitcher, Satchel Paige. Or mayyyyybe after some military thing called a "satchel charge" (guess who thought up that reference?).

I first saw him on Thurday, then went back to adopt him from the Humane Society on Friday after work. I haven't had a small kitten - he's about 12 weeks old - since I bought my Maine Coon, Murphy, in 1987. So it's been fun to have a tightly-wound ball of energy careening around the apartment.

Caygeon is having a hissy-fit, literally. But she's not being aggressive towards him, which is good. Mostly she's keeping her distance but watching him, and hissing when Satchel gets too close.

Satchel also really enjoys sitting on my chest and rubbing his wee little kitty face in mine. I have the allergic reactions to prove it.

His current nicknames are "Satchmo," "Satchy," and "Little Man."

Awwww! What a cutie!! Good for you, Hwg. Spread that love around. Dawsey would be so pleased you were opening your heart to another cat. Besides.. every cat should have another kitty friend!

Awwwwww, HWG, Satchel is so very lucky that you will be his human. Big hugs and best wishes.

He is a real cutie!

What device did you use to get the video? Was that from your digital camera?

You did a very good thing Highwaygirl. The love never ends. It just keeps getting passed to new loves.

Love! I'm so happy for you! Satchel is also the name of the dog in Get Fuzzy, one of the few remaining comic strips that is actually funny. I always thought it was a great pet name.

Good on ya!

Cute, cute, cute. Love the white paws and expression that says, "I defy you not to love me!"
