Forgot what kittens are all about!
She deleted my post!

My daughter has a new kitten, she is beyond cute, and I'm in love already, but I had forgotten the fascination of laptops kittens hold, and how one soft paw can wreak so much havoc.

She is Chicky-Chicky Mau-Mau, and we brought her home yesterday. A few months ago Tinkerbell was killed by a ginger feral cat, and Brad had been grieving, so we are hoping he will get to like Chicky, but right now he is very snarky, although he hasn't attacked her.

Any advice from any cat owners?

Re: Forgot what kittens are all about!
Congrats on giving another kitty a home and a family to love her. There are so many out there needing homes.
We always keep our home at "cat-pacity" for that reason.
We lost my kitty's inseparable love in August, and found
him a new companion a few weeks ago. They are slowly
becoming friends, not at the sleeping in a heap stage yet.
I think if you just give
them time to get used to each other, all will be fine, and
bonds will be formed. It's important to keep reassuring your
Brad that you still love him the most, that he's still the
Big King of the house, lol. Kittens are very playful, and
little CCMM will likely test Brad's boundaries. But unless
Brad's super territorial and aggressive, they will work things out just fine, and you'll get to enjoy watching them
play and become pals. Good luck!

Re: Forgot what kittens are all about!
Get a good scratching post. We brought home a shelter cat last year and he tore up so many things until we had posts all over the house. Now he behaves and is a lot more calm. He's gigantic and doesn't fit in the little nooks anymore but he still sits on top of it. He's an orange tabby so naturally.. he's huge. Also, don't forget that when you're getting food there's a difference in the foods, kittens need kitten food. A can of wet food once a week seems to keep our cat happy too.

Also.. I don't have multiple cats but a friend does. She has warned that if we do get another cat there's just an adjustment period. After a few months their cats were buddies.

#1 There is a round toy with a ball that goes around and around, it keeps them busy for hours because they can bat it and chase it, but never catch it.

#2 Shoot the feral cat that killed your other cat. Normally I would never recommend harming a feral cat, but you can't risk this one with an evil monster running around. If you livetrapped him, you would just be giving someone else the same problem. If you dumped him far away from any houses, he would become coyote bait and the humane society would just kill him anyway.

Good luck with the kitten.

Thanks, good advice.
Brad is used to sleeping with my daughter Ami, but Chicky seems to like it too, who should get the bed at this stage of the relationship?

Re: Forgot what kittens are all about!
Sorry about your cats death, but my wife brought home a little orange tabby cat and we named it Minion. He is adorable and acts like a dog sometimes,but he has been very dominate over our larger tabby.

Squirt guns work, and give you an excuse to go buy a bad ass Nerf/super Soaker. I'm alpha male of the house, so when I hear the cats fighting I stomp like a gorilla until the cats freak the fuck out and I grab minion by the scruff and pick him up hard enough for him to know I'm BOSS. Then he starts to purr. He's a weirdo, especially because he has a favorite stuffed animal monkey.
Eat, drink, and be merry,
for tomorrow,
you may die.

Love it!

I'm going to get a gun :)

Chicky is frisky and playful, and so far Brad hasn't attacked her, but keeps hanging around outside.

Re: Forgot what kittens are all about!
Oh, I have a little 5 month old tyrant that needs Ritalin. When he's not harassing the 15 year old cat, he's looking for something to shred, pounce on or bite. Ignores all the toys because knocking stuff off the shelves is way more entertaining. He's locked out of the bedroom at night because I can't take the punctures and scratches on my bare feet anymore because he attacks the covers ALL night long. I play with him a lot but he has two speeds, sleeping or psycho. And just what is up with juvenile cat hygiene? I swear he smells like ass, a LOT. I've washed his bum and it returns hours or a day later.

Hahaa, Ami's kitten is a little angel compared to Ritalin ;)


She's settling in well, and has Ami and I in stitches of

laughter frequently.

Nothing like a kitten or a puppy to give a light heart :)
