So, we brought home a kitten. She's half Bengal, half Scottish Fold, all cuteness. Though she did yowl all the way home in the car. And pee in her box. And it went all down my leg. So now we need to clean the car.

Smudge is not impressed. He's been keeping to one end of the house and hissing at anything that smells of the little one. He appears a bit calmer now, though I don't know how long that will last.

Even though I know that, ultimately, he'll be happier with a companion, I still feel awful for putting him through this stress. I really hope that they come to terms with each other by the end of the week. I won't have Phil here all the time for help with supervision, and I don't particularly want to leave either of them alone. Tomorrow will be interesting.

I think Smudge has a sore tooth or gum. He hadn't eaten since yesterday morning, and I noticed today that he was trying to eat his bikkies, but wasn't doing very well. He'd pick one up and drop it, then look at me in a very sorry and confused way. I gave him an egg which he lapped up with gusto, so I'm thinking it wasn't digestive.

I bought him some wet food sachets and gave him one of those tonight. He started licking up the jelly with all the enthusiasm a little cat can muster, but was avoiding the chunks. So I added some cat milk, pureed it in, and gave him that. He managed to lick up all of it.

I called the vet at 8 this morning and the earliest appointment we could get is tomorrow night. I hope he's ok and that they can fix him :-/
