Found a kitten, uber cute

Saturday morning, while trying to go to work at the co-op, I saw three women chasing a kitten down the street. I thought it was one of their kittens, and got out to help because it kept running into the street and I live on a really busy main road. 20 terrifying heart-in-your-throat minutes later, the kitten was caught and... it belonged to no one, no one can take it. Can you see the "SUCKER" written across my forehead now? Yep. Thought he was feral, put him in my cat's "travel" crate (which is a large dog crate), put in some food and water and a litter box, and went to work, planning on giving him to a rescue organization on Monday. Spoke to kitty rescue on Sunday, they told me they've got no room, no other rescue places/shelters are taking anything because they're all so full. Pair that with "my boyfriend is in love with the kitten" and it looks like we've got a third cat. He's calmed down, and is now a real sweetie who purrs and purrs and is a total lap cat. He took a nap on the couch with my bf yesterday and just snuggled and purred the whole time. We brought him to the vet yesterday, and other than the usual parasites (ear mites, worms -- I took care of the fleas on Saturday), he's healthy. Felv/FIV neg. He's in the 10-12 wk age range, though bony thin, but he eats well and I got him a good no bi product no corn food so he should fatten up quick. No name yet, but I'm open to suggestions. My requirements are, however, that it isn't a name that obviously describes him (no "pumpkin") and no human names that one might actually name a human (i.e. one of my other cats is "Atticus" but I'd never actually name a human that).

Here are some pics!
(He's polydactyl!)

OH.. ok.. perspective change. The first one is in front of my super big 17" monitor laptop with full size keyboard with number pad. The second one he's sitting on my more portable like 15" monitor laptop with smaller keyboard. Note that the first one the laptop is silver, and the second is black :)

He is filling out though.

Man, you have a lot of computers.  He's still uber cute.  Is that Munchie?  I knew whoever was playing Feets with him was going to cave.

Oh yea. Monchichi has totally caved. Atticus is a fickle playmate. He likes the snuggles and grooming and what not, but Munch can't always engage him in play. The little bugger is all about running around the house and playing feets, and Munchie is digging it. He could stand to lose a little bit of weight too so I think the extra run time will be good for him!

well, i guess atticus will be happy that munch has a willing friend to play with now!

I think he's just jealous. The baby is on my lap purring as I type. You should come visit again soon. They're only snuggly kittens for a short time.

I don't know, you take him in, you feed him, you even give him a little freshen up, and THAT'S the look you get?! UNGRATEFUL!  ;D

You do realise you're gonna have to get a bigger laptop soon? :P

Is he too enraged to move?  Why isn't he shredding bp?  It's nice to know Cat lives on if only in channeled glare.

That is the most hilarious picture I have ever seen in my LIFE!

I feel so bad for the kitty, but seeing that look of complete hatred was worth his suffering. How is BP not cracking up???

;D

You could tell he didn't want to be there, but he wasn't trying to claw our eyes out or anything. It didn't take him long to forgive us and want to sit with us again either. He's really got a good temperment.
