Well so far so good! Picked him up yesterday morning and he cried/screamed all the way home. Luckily it was a local pick-up so didnt take long.
Took him to his chosen room (my bedroom for now!) and opened his carrier door, within 10 minutes he'd found all of his new toys and every corner and crevice in said room. He plays for hours!! Certainly very confident and sure of himself. At the moment he's staying in this room, he's briefly met the dog but think that was a bit much (we're talking a rather large and clumsy doberman here!) so we'll take it steady with that one. And also briefly met one of my other cats, who was totally not bothered but Rascal insisted on hissing and overreacting to him so again we'll leave that until he feels more ready for it.

He's eating nicely (not as well as you'd expect a kitten to but doing well enough considering all this change) and also using the litter tray.
I've bought him a small kitten bed but last night he took to sleeping under my bed then frequently waking me up during the night to sneak under my blankets and have a snooze under there too :roll: I assume it will just take time until he feels secure enough to sleep in his own bed...
Along with being absolutley mental when it comes to playing he's also very cuddly and is quite content curling up on my knee, lap, shoulder and strokes my face with his paw. Think its safe to say that I am head over heels already... :D ... hes just gorgeous!

Don't bank on it :lol: :lol:

It's great that he's settled in so quickly and being a confident kitten will help him deal with the other residents. Keep us updated on how the introductions go.

Enjoy! :wink:

just what i was thinking!! :lol:
if he's confident enough to get in bed with you, i'm sure he'll be happy to keep doing that if you let him lol. much more room to spread out & a warm human to cuddle up to :lol:

it sounds like he's settling in nicely, & hopefully he'll get along with your dog when he's ready. we have another member on here who has dobermanns, there are some good photos & videos here somewhere of them getting along.

oh thanks for that! Thats good to see :D
Im sure they will be best of friends, my doby is a big softy and has been so good and patient with this new kitten around, its just the kitten thats unsure at the moment. But then he is about 50x the size of him!

As for the bed thing... I know I've probably started something here but its soo cute and the OH is away during the week so it's nice to have something to cuddle up to :wink: To be fair though he has started having a few minutes rest in his own bed so thats a start...

Well Im back to work today, getting ready this morning was a nightmare, putting on make-up is obviously a game as well as running around with my clothes/underwear that had been laid out ready. Im a bit :? about leaving him but my mother is going to kitten-sit for me and I will pop home at lunch. Wish I could bring him to work with me...

He was very good, thanks for asking :D
He's very well behaved to be fair, but as soon as I walk into the room he appears from his comfy corner and just wants to play and terrorise everything. He wouldnt come out for my mother apparently!! He's becoming a lot braver and now follows me out of the room and is gradually coming further and further... hes been intoduced properly to one of my other cats, Charlie, whom he loves and Charlie has been an angel with him. He has such a good nature. So Rascal now follows him around everywhere... its also helped having Charlie around when my doby has made an appearance in his room. Thats going quite well but just making very little steps at the moment with their friendship... the problem with Harvey is that he will chase if Rascal runs or darts around. Obviously very scary for a little kitten! But considering how hyperactive Harvey usually is he is trying so hard to be calm...he will sit down and quiver with excitement where he's trying so hard not to move! bless!

Rascal gives very good kisses too...think he will be a real ladies man :wink:
