Yep! I know the old " lets keep it and take care of it until we find it a good home" never has worked in this house we always end up falling in love and keeping the little creature. Besides who could possibly take care of it better than us.

Yep, it never works that way when you say "Just until it gets better"

It always ends up worming its way into your heart!

I doubt he's a stray, because he's as friendly as anything, and a good search didn't locate an owner, so he must have been dumped.

He was very crook... skinny as a rake, and full of worms / fleas / goodness knows what else. I called the SPCA, who told me that unfortunatley, they have an influx of kittens, and they'd have to put him down. So I persuaded my (reluctant) husband to let me nurse him till he was better and we could find him a new home.

Long story short, my DH fell for him too... so he's ours now. Isn't he a cutie?
Oh my! He looks just like my Julia Child Kitty did the first time I saw her.

Good luck. I know you will have years of loving with him. I sure miss my Julia.
Wine is the food that completes the meal.

What a sweet looking kitty! Makes me want a kitten.

Cool cat!

You could ask your vet to help you out with the charges. Explain to them what the SPCA said and that you decided keep him. They will most likely help you out.
