Gizmo being held.

Gizmo (Kitten)Gizmo the kitten is 2 months old. She is a dilute Calico or Tortoiseshell. She was found huddled in a friend's garage, with an eye infection when she was a few more than four days old. She is at the ninja cat stage where she zooms thru the house, and hasn't learned to stop for humans. So we call them Ninja kittens at that age. Her coat is coming out so beautifully, the orange and white are so dilute from a genetic mutation. She is so beautiful and wild acting, I think it is from pure joy! We never thought she would get off the bottle, but she finally did after she bit off two nipples on the pet nurser.
