Oscar-fied.

I'm not kidding when I say that since we've brought him home, Oscar has simply not stopped growing. Every so often when he's sleeping he has the kitten look, but then he'll wake up and look at you, and he suddenly doesn't look like a baby anymore.



He's got to go in for his first shots some time this week, which are just because I'm over-cautious. He's an indoor kitty only, but I don't want to take any chances.



I've been smitten since day one, in fact, since before day one; since the first time I saw his cute little face in a photograph. But now, Jason takes the cake. He's totally smitten. Seriously, every time I see them together, a little piece of me melts.



Oscar has his moments when he sleeps like an angel, but still goes into hyper-mode every so often which leaves him sleeping in the hallway and us covered in scratches. He's taken to straddling our arms and using us as his scratching post, which is endearing at first, but becomes quickly painful. Kitty training is tough.



He's always on the move, and the only time he sits still is to sleep. He occasionally uses his bed, but most of the time prefers one of our lounge cushions.



You know, I'm thoroughly enjoying being a bit of a kitty-blogger. To be perfectly honest, we're laying low for a little while after spending way too much money in Denmark, and it's nice to be able to have a laugh at home, knowing that kitty is probably going mental without us.

Plus, I'm going to be in the USA in less than two months now (!) and I am determined to spend as much time with my baby as I can before I leave. No doubt he'll be well and truly all growned up by the time I get home.

It doesn't take much for them to grow up, kittens grow up so quickly.

Viviane said...

How cute! (I am repeating myself, I think, haha.) Glad Jase loves him too now seeing how he first didn't want to get a cat! What will you be doing with Oscar while you're in the US?

Deutlich said...

Hehe he even looks like you so sweet you will have to have a wallet photo and he is doing parrot kitty poses too! They don't really get that the body is you they see the face as you and the body is some sort of tree that you’re attached to so they climb it to come see you believe me I’ve the scares to prove it!

angela said...

I adore the pic of Oscar "helping" Jase on the computer. It can't get any cuter!

Jacinta said...

Such sweet photos - the one with him and your man looking at the computer is cute - and the one with you. Kittens are so adorable when they are still so small and wide eyed.

Operation Pink Herring said...

All three of you are adorable... especially Oscar with his too-big ears! Adorable!

Katie said...

Oscar is so so adorable! I think he and Puddy could be very good friends (after the initial wrestling match, hissing and fur-flying hehe).

I love the photos of Oscar with you and Jason because it shows just how teeny-tiny he still is! He's just so darn cute. :D

margottobed said...

soooo cute! love that cat!

girlinterrupted1218 said...

Oscar has got to be the cutest kitty ever!

Briliantdonkey said...

Cute kitty to say the least. I am much more of a dog person myself but cute is cute. Catching up on some reading finally and even a miracle post perhaps. Great to see you are still keeping up with the blog.

He's still tiny, moo. When you think they look like a cat rather than a kitten... I look back at pictures of Fizz during that time and he looks so small. He's a horse now. I'm guessing the picture on Jase's shoulder is old though, since he looks teeny weeny in that one.

Take pictures of him next to particular objects- then when he's all grown, you'll put him next to them and look at the picture and go OMG how small was he!

I wish so much I could cuddle him and give him pats.

Kelly said...

Kitty!
And Jase has been converted, obviously. How can you not be swayed by such cuteness?

rachel said...

So so cute. I'm so enjoying the kitty blogging

Now wait, maybe I missed something, but you are leaving the USA? what happens to your kitty when you go?

La said...

I'm not generally a cat person? But sweet lord is that kitty adorable!

Kristabella said...

That ALMOST makes me want to get another kitty. But then I remember they grow up to be cats. And then they become annoying and around you ALL THE TIME. And when it is 90 degrees in your house, the last thing you want is a fat cat on your lap.

mcgee said...

belated congratulations on your new baby!! SO. CUTE. and obviously fitting right in.

i'd love to have a coffee when you're in san francisco!

Laurel said...

OMG, that one of the kitty on Jase's shoulder is adorable. Squee!

Jamie said...

Don't they grow so fast?! Edie seems like she gets bigger overnight!

I love the one of Oscar sitting on Jason's shoulder. He's watching him internetz!

ashley said...

Oh he's so cute that he makes me want a kitty too. And what a cute name!

The Lisa Show said...

I'm overloading on cuteness here. I WANT!!! The expression on his face on that last picture... oh my god. NOM NOM NOM.

Liz J in Central Illinois said...

He is such a sweetie - - I just love his pretty face . . . and those eyes! What a doll.

Lara said...

He is such a cutie!!!!

Chris said...

Very, very cute.

Sara said...

I stumbled aross your blog from "Oh! How Lovely!" and just had to comment on your sweet little kitten! We also have a grey tabby named Oscar. And he also grew up way to fast. Hope you are having fun with the joys of new kitten parenting! Love your blog!

HollowSquirrel said...

you're all too cute. STOP the cuteness.
Also -- where are you coming to in America?!

Allie said...

Oh! He's so cute! Looks so much like my cat did when she was little. She did the scratching post arm thing too. She was insane for the first 5 years of her life. Now she's much more calm.

Tina Vaziri said...

Must feast upon ultimate cuteness!
