Batman, the New Kitten.

Batman deux, name of my new maine coon, lookng like tabby.
Batman is so cute!

I went to the local animal shelter, which is a no kill shelter.  I went to find an older cat, but saw this one and only kitten.  It looked very similar to another cat I had long ago, Batman.  But this cat looked exactly like Batman.  He was tiny but his ears were big and paws.

Well I could not resist and I got the kitten and named him Batman Deux.  He has been a joy.  He loves to play, and loves to hunt too.

Beautiful purple flowers with tiny tiny petals, and very tall stem with very shart needles all over it and big bulbs under the purple flower.
