new kitten

Well, I went to the shelter today and put my name on the list for a short haired male kitten, any color. I know I am going to take down the drapes until he is over the climbing phase. Any other suggestions. My sofa and Chair are covered pretty well and are not very new. The sofa has seen better days. I've got the new carrier, litter box, kitten food. Checked with the vet. I wonder if I forgot anything.

Yup, tims about covered it! I wouldn't worry about the furniture, if you train your new kitten to scratch only the scratching posts, your furniture will be unscathed Good luck with the new addition!

Do not forget food dishes. Or will you be using the ones your previous kitty ate/drank from?

Which style of kitty litter are you using for when you get a new kitten?

Anyway, good luck to you and I hope you get to adopt a new kitten soon. Btw, would you adopt an adult cat?

I forgot to say that I bought all the afore mentioned items. I was so upset when Clark died that I threw away all his stuff, so everything is new. I am using tidy cats scoop clumping litter. I buy it at the comissary for 8 dollars and change for 35 pounds. I thought of an adult adoption, but I want to train the new guy to walk with a leash and harness like Clark did. Other than that he is not going outside. Since I live in a travel trailer the daily walks were neat for both of us.

oops, no cat condo or cat tree, space is limited. I have overhead storage that Clark liked to hang out in when he was young enough to jump up there. Thanks for your help. Any thing else I forgot?

Be careful when using clumping litter with a new kitten. A member here adopted a cat only to have it pass away a few days later. They used clumping litter and it is suspected that the kitten may have ingested the litter.

Of course, if clumping litter was used at the shelter AND the shelter operators have not reported any problems, then that will be fine. But observe any new kitten/cat that has never used clumping litter. I would feel so bad to have anything happen.

Thanks for the heads up. I will go out and buy some regular litter until the little guy gets older. Why take a chance. I have had enough heartaches this month. John
