Meet Marlee!

Meet the newest member of our family... Marlee.  Spencer just adores this little fella!

He is about 7 weeks old and was orphaned out by Lake Koocanusa.  His mom was thought to have been eaten by cougars out by the lake and our neighbour whom has a trailer out on the lake heard the kittens crying one night and watched for their mom.  When she didn't appear after 12 hours she took in the 4 three week old kittens; 3 orange tabbys and a solid black kitten - all males home and took care of them.

Because he is still so young, he gets mostly bottle fed.  He drank for the first time out of a bowl this morning which is a good sign.

Being separated from his brothers has made him a super big suck. His favourite spot to sleep in on my chest so I tend to carry him around in a scarf around my neck like a baby. He just like a little furry, purring furnace... LOL! The photo below is a little fuzzy since I took it with my camera photo... sorry...

Welcome home Marlee!
