    definitely take him to the vet to get his shots. Once upon a time I had a girlfriend who accepted a kitten from a lady outside the grocery store with a box of kittens. we didn’t know any better and just started raising him. he got real sick with worms and we had to take him to the vet and spend a good chunk of money to save him. better do it early on before anything happens.

    Black tom cats are THE best !

    Congrats. And even though you had to mention your bad neighbors, (which knowing the backstory that you laid out previously, it pisses me off just hearing about them) I like the fact that your wife went over there and said “give me the damn cat”.

    It’ll be great. And then it’ll grow up strong and proud like Notch/Mookie

    Someone threw a tiny kitten over my garden wall when I lived in Africa. It wouldn't eat or drink milk even after two days and in the end I had to do the kindest thing under the circumstances. I'm guessing someone's cat had spawned a litter and they didn't want the bother of having all of them around. If they'd waited a few more days it could have survived in good hands without its mother.
    There aren't pet rescue organisations in some countries; animals aren't always held in high regard. :(

    We had a tiny black cat, and named him Speck. He's not tiny any longer, so the name is incongruous. Black cats are neat!

    I always wanted to get a black cat and name him/her “13” just to freak out superstitious people.

    Another tip: make sure you keep him inside for the couple weeks leading up to Halloween. There are a lot of lousy humans out there who do terrible things to black cats around that time of year.

    Beautiful little kitty!

    We had a similar experience with a tiny little kitty that adopted us and our dogs. After I finally captured her in the woods, took her inside and fed her, she had it all figured out and we were stuck with her. She is our dogs' best friend, she always swats at their wagging tails, they growl and bark, this is called "fun." The there's this:

    Of course, a small laser pointer is great for exercising the cat...

    Sounds to me like it was meant to be @Torren61. Ozzy's cool and he'll be good luck! Congrats.

    There have been 4 black cats in my life. Two didn't like me. Two did. Luckily, current black cat Binky is one of the ones who does. (Yes, he is named for Death's white horse.)
