Oh, goodness. This little guy. I kept hoping his momma would appear, but that doesn't seem likely.
I first saw him Sunday night, under the front porch in a leftover gutter/drainage piece.
Around 5'ish in the morning, I heard him crying. So I crawled under the house wearing a headlamp and using my phone flashlight to find him. He was pretty far back in some exposed insulation. Even though it was creepy AF under there, I kept crawling towards him.
About 3 feet away, I could hear him purring. But I couldn't get any closer due to pipes. So he came to me. I cleaned up his goopy eye, ground up some cat food with almond milk and returned him to under the porch before going to work. This isn't the first time we've discovered kittens, so I hoped the mom would return during the day.
Came home, he greeted me, followed me, cuddles and purrs when I pick him up... so he's on kitten milk replacer and wet kitten food, had his first bath and seems to be thriving. Last night he and Tiny Dancer played pawsies under the door.
Still not sure what we'll do with him... but he seems to like me. Damn monsters.
m o n s t e r s // this kid is obsessed with monsters. he wants to watch them. he wants to play pretend monsters. everything is monsters. " mom, monsters downstairs". " mom, monsters bite my toes". and now monsters are keeping me & daddy up all night with a crying child who won't stay in his bed. he insists on having the lamp on & the door left open at bedtime. shortly after putting him down, he sneaks out of his room and wants loves. tonight after dinner hoven was telling jory about the monsters in the basement. jory quickly replied that he told the monsters to leave. hoven took that in and thought about for a min. then looked at jory and asked " monsters leave? ", jory told him yep, they're gone. hoven then replied with his newest two year old phrase, "why"? we ended the conversation emphasizing over and over that we told the monsters to leave and now they are gone. no monsters are in our house. tonight a certain little boy didn't sneak out of his bed for loves and why I am happy that he went to bed easy tonight, i really missed the snuggles. #momproblems#nightlyview#tendermoments#daddysnuggles#damnmonsters#ilovehisloves#andhissweetlittlevoice#begonemonsters#maybewewillallsleeptonight#lovethisboy#hovenlynn@jorydee
