A PhD friend who moved from CT to NYC had told me she wanted a kitten. There are a lot of strays outside my house and being the kitty sluts that they are, they sometimes have kittens that need homes. We could spay them, or we could save ourselves a lot of money and hassle and just let them do what they want to do. She was supposed to get this one kitten that was born a few months ago, but that kitten didn't make it so when I saw a sign at work for free kittens I immediately got on the phone to my friend. 24 hours later, BAM, I'm in Petco buying a tiny litter tray for The World's Cutest Kitten tm.
What follows is going to be an explosion of sickeningly cute kitten pictures. Get that vomit bag ready.
I named him River and his Korean name is Doong Doong.
You can stop barfing now.
P.S. Thanks to Mike D for the photography!
