I'm a Studly Kitten

Hi kitties. Freddie here. I have a weird story.

The other day, my foster mum got a phone call about me. It was from a man interested in adopting me. He sounded nice enough to start, but then the weirdness started. He said he didn't want to pay the desexing component of my adoption fee, because he didn't want me desexed. He wanted me to be his stud cat. Me. The little kitten from the street, of indeterminable parentage. The kitten who comes with no kind of genetic history, who is really quite a runty little thing. Did I mention I'm not even 10 weeks old yet? Or that he got my foster mum's number from a site with hundreds of kittens looking for homes?

He got angry with my foster mum when she said she wouldn't consider it. Oh well. I don't think the studly life is for me.

Oh no Freddie, but we think your mum should trust her instincts here. It does sound a bit weird, and we think you will find a much better furrever home.

Mum was hoping she got to go to Sydney for a course next week, but it got cancelled. She thought she might be able to come and pay the fosters a visit.

Have a good weekend everybuddy.

I have heard that the studly life isn't what it's cracked up to be, good on your Mom!

Sweet wee Freddie ~ you are so adorable. Thank goodness you are in a safe and loving home. There are so many wonderful kittens and cats to adopt out in this world. No need to go making more before we have taken care of the ones we have!

Your foster mum is one smart and loving woman! :)

Give your mom extra kisses and hugs from me for being such a smart and loving mom. That man sounds crazy.

Hooray for your mom, Freddie! We're glad she's there to protect you from creepy people like that man.

Elvin said...

This is creepy indeed, and I think your Mom is right on about what that man wanted you for. The sad thing is that he probably will be able to find other cats.

Sounds like your mom made a furry good decition. We're not saying you wouldn't make furry cute baby cats, but with all the lovely kittens like you and your siblings out there getting homes for all the existing kitties is much more important!

Your Mom has great instincts and it's great that she follows them.

Daisy said...

Uh oh! Just what the world needs, more kittens trying to find a good home. Even though I am sure you would make really cute babies, your mom did the right thing!

MoMo said...

OMC, thank goodness you have a sensible mum. That man is definitely weird, and creepy to the bargain. Just imagine what sort of life you would have with someone like that.
