Re: How do I pick the right kitten ?
Only owned 2 cats my whole life. One lived to 19, the next to 18.
I am ready for a new love and have pets now.
I really want an affectionate one.
Personality is most important.
Not sure how I’ll ever decipher that in a kitten.
It’s a big deal and lifetime commitment to me..

The one that interacts with you and plays with you the most.

And I'd get a kitten that was just weaned into solid food. (just over a month old)

Just instinctual traits, OP is looking for give and take lovin. Ain't gonna happen OP. You are asking for the moon. Give it up, unless you look for an established older cat with a personality and the kick is that you will have to WORK at a relationship and not just expect it.

This.....

I wanted a large orange kitten from a feral litter in my neighbor's land and went out there to bait them....I put out cat food and waited to grab the orange kitten.....when I approached, they all skedaddled except for the runt....she was a tiny tabby and continued to eat while looking at me....when she was done, she came over to me....


I picked her up without a fight and she came home with me.....that was that....she was the most affectionate cat I every had....she passed over a decade ago and I still miss her company....

Instead of expecting deep love from a new cat, how about getting a kitten the just loves playing with you? It's not that hard.

That being said, I'm glad I'm not a cat parent any more, it got to be a lot of work and expense.

Re: How do I pick the right kitten ?
I can't really help out other than tell you that you'll just know you have the right kitty :33

Anyway one girl I know who is always sung about in reverse as part of the "HAREM," who I call Clairebot, well, she wanted my special one-eyed kitten that I got from the "HAREM HEAD" named Jamie

Well, Claire has done her fair share of stiffing me in more ways than one, so what I did was I told her that I'd love to give her the kitten :'33

We met and she was soooooooooo excited to take him from me, except, that didn't happen >:33

HAHAHAHA x33

Meow meow meow INSTEAD, what happened was that I made her a smoothie and she drank it down and said it was tasty, then I told her that I was so happy to show her the kitten but he's going to be coming home with me, sorry.

Oh the look on her face !!! The sheer hearbreak !!! Her lips quivering with pain, her eyes holding back tears !!!

I offered her to smoke some meowijuana but she declined, and said she had to go :'33

Of course I wished her a safe walk home, and started playing some DARK SPEECH super loud !!!

I laugh about it almost every day x33

Here's a video of the kitten !!! Jamie and I named him Pi II, after POPPY's hairless cat named Pi. Plus it fits him so well since he's one-eyed, like a pirate :33

Re: How do I pick the right kitten ?
I have had many cats over the years, and I have found that the ones who pick YOU are the best ones.

Look for healthy, bright eyes. Clean ears. No runny nose. Active and playful, also curious and not too afraid.

I used to go to the 'kitten room' in shelters, sit down, and see who would come to me and not be aggressive or afraid.

Trust me on this one.
 Quoting: FissionSurplus


That is how i picked my last girl.
I kept chasing the cute ones around, and the funny looking one kept jumping on my shoes and crawling my leg, she was insane, I called my husband and he said ‘that’s the one you bring home’ and I did.
And she kept us smiling her whole life. She grew to be gorgeous by the way.
I do believe I want a super lovey one this time..
I am afraid to get a sick one, I will look for the brightest eyes. No goops or sneezes etc.

Re: How do I pick the right kitten ?
Do not pick a kitten, pick a cat. After about a year cats seem to reveal their personality. Find a cat that likes you and that you like and you will be much happier.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 37711225


That was my other line of thinking. At that age I would for sure what kind of cat I had on my hands..
I’ve met some ridiculously amazing cats in my life. And I’ve had 2 phenomenal ones, so I’m a little nervous starting over.

1) Open Notepad.
2) Place kitten on keyboard.
3) If kitten types "glp", "doom", "a1", or "tomato", it's the right one. Otherwise try another kitten.

It's like he's picking a person to have a relationship with and not considering them. A kitten is a helpless baby animal and can never live up to your expectations. Give it up.
 Quoting: claircognizant_one


I’m a female and definitely have relationships with my pets. I think I’ve set the bar high because I’ve only had amazing ones. No matter what, they’d still be cherished and loved, just hoping to get it right and looking for some insight.

Re: How do I pick the right kitten ?
If I could actually choose a kitten, it would be a bengal.
Second best to a Bengal would be a tabby thats obviously been bred with a a bengal at some point. I have a Tabby with both Rosettes and stripes she is so cute. You can adopt her if you want her. She's three and a short hair tabby, so quiet and cute. Another one I have is more of a longhair that one cries like a baby. They are sisters if you want them both.

tom kitties are more so affectionate. females will get more so if they have kittens. i have a couple of tabbies. I have owned a lot of cats. these are the sweetest most affectionate kitties ever, even the girl, but she is a bit less loving the tom. hf

I think I’m ready for a change ! Both mine were solid colored short hairs. I’ve been wanting a male orange tabby ( ultimate lovies ive heard ) and I’ve been daydreaming about a Siamese ( I met the coolest one EVER) then I look at the mixed little mutts and think I’d like those too !! I feel sexist, but am hesitant to go with a male, because they are more likely to spray and get more possible urinary issues.
