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.
