Wow! Thanks so much for the great Advice!
I am so glad I found ya'll!
Sorry if anything below sounds crazy, its after midnight and I'm tired!
Its not for certain whether or not we can get one, My dad is the type person that goes through every lil' detail on something like this. lol:p Not that I mind, just saying. He also makes sure we do ALLLLLL Our research and that we know what we are getting ourselves into. We pay for the vet,toys,etc.
Anyways,Most of the Cats around this area are already spayed around 10 wks. of age.
I do have a Vet, that I definately Trust with any of my animals. Its a shame he only does small animals, or i'd have him vet all my large animals. He's very knowledgeable,and has been a vet for over 20yrs, I know. I'm not sure how many, but he has always been here as long as I can remember. And I'm 16, and I know before I was born he was already in it for a few years. Anyways(If you haven't noticed I ramble/rambled lol:p) He's an EXCELLENT vet and has a love for the animals. He will cry with you when you've lost an animal, and he's just Wonderful.
As far as the Declawing we honestly, weren't wanting to go that route if at all possible. My dad said his only concern was if they got lose outside or something and needed them for Protection, then he wouldn't want the cat not having them. That's why we were kinda considering the SoftPaws(thanks for telling me the name).
How do you teach/train them to use the Scratch pole/post?
And to answer the question you asked me OsnobunnieO, It will live in my bedroom. But it will be able to get out around the rest of our house as long as I supervise it. We bought new furniture last year, and we cant' have it messed up. Dad wouldn't be happy about that!
So, it'll stay in my bedroom while i'm not here. And I definately wouldn't get a cage to keep it confinded to all the time. But I was saying maybe getting something like an Excerise Pen(Petsmart Carries them), or something to put it in just for a few hrs. if I leave sometime. Could they climb out of something like that, since they climb so well?
Well, i'd just probably get a really large cage,and keep it in that while I was gone. I'm normally here most of the time. And Definately will be this summer. We've got 2 more weeks of school left, so I figured if I got one now I could be here definately all summer with it. Then when I go back to school next year, could still have a certain time to spend with it each day. But that away i'm here pretty much constantly the first few months with it.
Ok,I've really gotta get now! lol:p I'll try and write more later. Maybe introduce myself better, in the other board as well.
