New Kittens!!!

GOOD NEWS: I will be getting two new kittens in the next few weeks.

BETTER NEWS: They're coming from somone I've met, so for once, I'll be sure of their history and know that they've been raised with so much love and care.

BEST NEWS: Everyone gets to see Chewie and Wicket grow up!!

I'll be needing a lot of advice and help. I have a second bedroom, but that's the girls' room, with their main litterbox and Cleo's window hangout and two of Cinderella's favorite places to sleep. So I'll probably be using my bedroom for the kittens when they first come home. (Peeyewwie - litterbox in my bedroom - but it's only temporary.) But that seems to be the best place to put them. Any other suggestions are welcome.

Cleo has already smelled a sweater the kitties have slept on, and she sniffed and sniffed and laid down on it and smelled it some more - a good sign, I think. Cinderella smelled it and looked at me and her eyes BUGGED OUT! Then she went looking around the house.

They'll be coming with their own cat tent (or what's left of it ) and some of their own toys, which should help.

They are the sweetest little kitties you could ever imagine, and Obi is just as delightful in person as he is on this Forum.

Mew and Isis are absolutely lovely and it's so adorable to see them grooming the kittens.

I'm so excited I can hardly stand it, but I have some serious kitty-proofing to do before they get here. My cats don't jump on anything or do much exploring. These little acrobats are everywhere, as they should be!

I'm open to any helpful hints on getting the house ready for kittens!

Awww, that's very cool Marie! I'm sure you and the new babies will do will do just fine, and I know you're a good kitty mommy, so I'm sure you'll be quite well prepared.

Thanks, everyone. They are SO ADORABLE! I tried to put Chewie in my bag as I was leaving, but Nini was watching me like a hawk!

Kitten proofing is a lot of work, Marie, but you have time to pace yourself.
I know you'll be a wonderful meowmie for them!

Thanks, Gunterkat.

I'm rearranging things in the house very, very slowly. I figure I'll make one noticeable change every other day, so my girls don't freak out. I moved the kitty condo to the girls' room so more than one kitty can see out of the good window now - the one with the huge tree blocking it and all the birds! Cleo is happy to just sit there and watch all the bird activity for hours, it seems.

If they are anything like Freeway, you'll need to set up a picnic table and take your meals outside, otherwise you will probably have hungry (or so they think), demanding kittens dangling from your clothes

Wouldn't have missed it for the world though

Ditto this. You can not eat with kittens in the house. Not possible!! Oh you can not sleep either. Besides that, it's the best thing ever!
