Over on the right-hand column you can see a picture of my new kitten. Black with the coolest gray-green eyes, short-haired, a tiny little fluffball. He likes to climb things, like, oh, say, me by my pant legs (and skin when I’m wearing shorts). He turned seven weeks old last Thursday, the same day I brought him home.

I’m still trying to find a name that suits him. My original name for him, “Smacky”, doesn’t quite fit now that I’ve spent some time with him, although it might stick for a while until I can find a better name.

You can find more pictures of him in my Flickr Set named “Smacky”.
