My aunt has a litter of 6 kittens that need homes, and this little guy is going to become the newest Steinmann baby in a few more weeks! We haven't mentioned it to the kids yet, and I want to keep it a surprise until right before he's old enough to come live with us. So don't say anything!! I think we'll tell the kids and make a special shopping trip a few days before we bring the new kitty home to let them pick out some things for him at Petsmart. I've been reading up on integrating a new kitten into a household with an older cat, and how to introduce them slowly and safely. I'm staying optimistic that Munchie won't have any issues with suddenly gaining a baby brother. He was one of 6 house cats until about 3 years ago, two of which we hand-raised from birth, so he's proven in the past that he interacts well with other cats and kittens. Hopefully that hasn't changed. I need to get to work on kitten-proofing the house!
