A neighbor had decided not to keep this cute kitten "Cecil". They have young children. The kitten is extremely playful ("wild", in their words) and the children just couldn't play gently with him. So they didn't want him.

Knowing I'm a softie, they brought him to me and of course I took him in.

Personally, I thought he was more fun than a barrel of monkeys, but my son also thought he was 'too rambunctious.' Especially since he thinks the kitten chewed through his Beats headphone cord and broke it...

So just now got back from bringing him in to the Golden Valley Humane Society. Fortunately they allow you to call in with the animal's number to check on his adoption status. For free. They used to charge $60 for this access.

Miss him already. Shot these using the Nikon DF, 50mm f/1.8 @ ISO 50
