Got a new kitty

I work as a driver for the Indy Star, and so I have a few places I have to drop newspapers off at. Last night when I was at my first drop I heard some loud meows, but did not know where they were coming from, so I went inside and dropped off the newspapers for that location (all 4600+ of them). When I got back outside and was about to get into the truck I heard it even louder, so I tried to find whatever cat was doing it.

I found the cat that was making all the noise by the dumpster. It looked like it was a stray, so I called to it. It came to me and I picked it up and asked if any of the cariers owned it, and one said that none of them owned, so if I wanted it I could keep it, so I did. it rode in the truck with me for the rest of the route and did not freak out like cats usually do in a moving vehicle. I did stop snd get some beef jerky to feed it right away since it was hungry, and after eating that it curled up on my lap while I was driving.

When I got home I took it inside and introduced it to the other cat. She is a bit jealous, but she will get over it. The cat (it's really a kitten, probably less than 3 months old) is very friendly. It is a medium gray with light gray stripes. If I can't find her a home I will get her fixed and all of her shots, then I will keep her. If I keep her I will probably name her Kritter, but I am open to suggestions. I don't know what it is, but a friendly cat brings a smile to my face every time.
