New Farm Baby..........a life of Taboo

For two days of the weekend flea market, he sat in a metal cage crate , in blowing wind and dust, with people poking at him and picking him up............but no one taking him home. 
Just as the flea market was closing, my husband and I were making our way to the parking lot...........
I spotted him............

the second he was in my hands............he was cemented to my heart. 
Wrapped up in my jacket and stuck into a worn coka-cola box........he was exhausted and slept all the way home.
I named him...........Taboo

When we arrived home............Zelda was very disapproving..........

but 
Sophie and Taboo made friends instantly


 
Taboo played with his new toys...........

explored my work area and every corner of his new world,

 wore Sophie and himself out..........
and took a nap

and now..........
a life of Taboo
has begun.

Looking forward to reading about Taboo's adventures with Sophie and eventually (?) Zelda. Wonderful for you to open your heart and home to the little one.

It does my heart good to know that you have given Taboo his forever home. What a sweet kitty. Love the photo of he and Sophie sleeping. Cats take longer to warm up to a newbie - thanks for sharing this sweetie with us.

This is the beginning of a story that will melt our hearts, I can totally see what happened as you picked him up, that little furry body responding to your touch and the love in your hands and heart. Maybe Zelda will eventually accept Taboo, as Sophie has.

Kittens have a way of getting into our hearts and homes.

Looking forward to his adventures in your loving home.

Oh how precious! You're a wonderful person for taking him in; poor little thing. I love baby kittens.

Kathleen, I'm so happy you took this little angel home! He's so very precious and I know he will give you much joy! And Zelda will get used to him, I'm sure!

You are so very kind. xoxo

I'm thankful that he has a good home with you Kathleen!

once Zelda has hissed at him the required lebenty-billion times, her obligate show of disapproval will fulfilled...she and Taboo can get on with the business of being pals.....i hope ;)

He's a beautiful little fuzzball. i would not have been able to resist him either and i love the name!

Lucky kitty to have such a fine farm to live on!

Very sweet! Glad Sophie likes the new baby...Zelda will probably come around. My daughter and her hubby recently acquired a young cat that looked abandoned and the two cats they already had...well, there have definitely been some adjusting on everyone's part! :-)

Daisy said...

Aw, he is such a sweetheart! I'm sure he has found a wonderful home. :-)
