Meet Our New Cousin - Fred

We have a new kitty cousin and we'd like to introduce him to you today!  Fred came to live with Mom Paula's nephew, Russell, and his beautiful family during the holidays.  Russell is Mom Paula's nephew who suffered a stroke in December that so many of you purred and purrayed for.  He's doing wonderful and the doctors expect a full recovery.  When he got out of the hospital and the rehab center, Fred came to live with them.
Meet Fred

Fred is about 16 weeks old and was adopted from the local PetSmart in Anderson, SC.  Fred was rescued from a dumpster, where someone left him, as a wee little kitten.  He was bottle-fed by his rescuers.

Mom Paula's little great niece, Zoey, who is 3 years old, named Fred.  Fred is very loving and has extremely high energy.  Mom Paula asked for photos of Fred with Zoey, but he said neither of them sit still long enough.  Russell said that Fred likes to caress your face and groom you.

Mom Paula took a kitty-care package to Russell for Fred during the holidays.  There were lots of toys and a water fountain.  We didn't have any kitten food, so we couldn't send any of our new samples we've received for review.  Russell says that Fred loves his toys.  He said Fred also drooled when he was happy!  The interesting thing about Fred is that he enjoys jumping in the bath with them.  We know Russell will be a great human dad to Fred and teach Zoey how to treat kitties.  Mom Paula has this special photo of Russell with Sweet Praline when she was a kitten back in 1995.

Mom Paula can't wait to meet Fred!  She'll be sure to take her camera and get more photos.  Welcome to our family, Fred!  Mom Paula got sneaky and swiped this photo off of Facebook that shows Russell, Zoey, and Fred resting peacefully at home.

  17. I am so glad to hear that Russell is still doing well and expected to fully recover. That is amazing news! Fred is super cute too! I think that Fred will make the perfect nurse for Russell as he recovers. :)
