Today is little Lokii’s fourth birthday! So here’s some baby photos of him.
In June 2008, we went to the breeder to pick a kitten out of the five she had. Two were boys, and I wanted a boy. One in particular was more adventurous than his siblings and I picked him. He’s so tiny! Fits in the palm of my hand.
That’s him front and centre, being brave and curious and getting closest to the strange skritchy noise I was making on the cushions.
Of course he was still too young to take home – we had to wait until August! But I was glad we found our boy and I was excited to be having a Siamese coming back into my life soon.
A terrible photo the breeder emailed us a few weeks later! Crazy bat-eared kitty.
First day home cuddling with his new Daddy! So small! He’s always been a bit of a daddy’s boy, too.
Small enough to fit in a 8-pack beer box! Yes, I drink this crap on occasion.
Playing in the paper that had covered a care package from Socks 🙂
All giant nose and big ears back then, and already evidencing his typical, slightly-bewildered expression. He’s a bit goofy and not very mechanical, for a Siamese, but I loves the little guy to bits.
oh, fat kitty belly! awwwwww!
I know! Smooshy pink kitten bellies are hard to resist 🙂
Is he too grown up to have a kitty belly now? >:-D aw, gee!
Oh, he’s got a bit of fat there now 😦 Jiggly kitty belly I tease him about, good thing he doesn’t speak English 🙂
Lokii is beautiful! So cute!
And hey, is that your hand with a tattoo’d bracelet?
Yes he is, and yes it is! My sister designed it for me, and I’ve had it since about 1998. Celtic knot work – most people don’t even notice it. I’m hell on real bracelets and watches, so a permanent one was a great idea!
I wasn’t sure whether it was celtic or not. But I love it!
What a beautiful kitty! Don’t you just love boy cats? They are so much sweeter and loving (IMHO). BTW, also love the name Lokii….Norse god and all. And noticed your hubby’s hair…wow wish my hair looked like that! Tell him I am jealous. 🙂
Totally prefer boy cats! For all the same reasons 🙂 they are like Meatloaf- they would do anything for love! Har 🙂
That photo is from 2008 – iDJ now has hair nearly TWO FEET longer. I hate him sometimes: no split ends. Hardly any tangles… Sigh. I’m only comforted by the fact that I would look terrible as a real blonde. I’m MEANT to have a black moustache and heavy dark leg-fur. I’d look silly without them 🙂
Oh I totally missed the Coors Light promotion. I would have loved to find a Siamese cat in a pack of beer.
Oh by the way, in Canada they don’t sell beer samples. Beer comes in packs of 15 or 30 cans.
Ha! So eight is just a sample? I like the way you drink!
What a cutie! He was so tiny. Love that shot with the brown paper. Think you picked the perfect name.
Thanks! He’s a good kid 🙂
