Little Miss Nelson

I now have a little kitten full of energy in the house! 😀 But she can also sleep for hours at a time, to recharge her batteries.

We got to visit her for the first time at week 4, by the time she looked like this:

Miss Nelson is her official name, but I almost always call her Nelson. In the beginning, when she was born, the owner said it was a male kitten. It wasn’t until the 6th week that we found out she is a female. 🙂 We wished for a male, but we still wanted to take the cutie, despite her being female. And I didn’t want to change the name. For me it is and will always be Nelson. Some may say Miss Nelson, others may call her Nellie or Nelly if they wish.

This is how relaxed she was during the 30 minutes drive to her new home:

We arrived home around 10 pm on Monday evening. We didn’t get much sleep the first night, but the transition to a new life has gone very smoothly. She knows where the kitty litter is and how to use it. She likes playing with certain toys, especially those hanging in elastic bands from sticks. 🙂

She is very cuddly, when she is in that mood. Last night she spent hours very close to my head, purring. She purrs other times as well, especially if she wants to relax after an episode of chasing toys around the house.

Before she arrived I made a little blanket for her. It’s just a fleece blanket with small black paw prints. I keep it mostly in a box. Nelson has slept there once so far.

In the autumn or winter I might put it on the sofa or the bed.

It’s fun watching her progression and play with her. She doesn’t mind the water and likes to play with a little water in the sink.

She ate a cooked fish yesterday and she will probably get the rest of the fish later today.

She likes to investigate her new home and often finds weird places to sleep in, like this shelf where she slept on top of small plush toys:

Finally here a picture of her sleeping on my bed. First she was chasing my hand under the bed sheet and all of a sudden she decided to charge her batteries, like this:

I hope she will have a long happy life here. I’m sure she will give me lots of moments of happiness and laughter. 🙂
