Walter is home.....!!!!

the first introductions went well.... there was no hissing.... and they have been doing well since, Janet seems to like him and hasn't left his side..... Walter does have a bit of a weepy eye and I guess that is fairly common for ragdolls to get these little eye infections so we are treating that......





Unfortunately I put some clumping cat litter down and Walter must have climbed the sides of his crate, landed in the water, and then walked in his litter box because when I got home from the grocery he was covered with clumping cat litter.

He gave me no choice.... but he was not a happy guy, I think he actually Hates me in this picture.... but I went and got different cat litter and all is well.... no more clumping cat litter for him for a while



Here is Janet and Walter.....



and just a few of the boy..... ignore the pile of research he is standing on in the lower picture.... I need a new file cabinet....

He's too stinkin' cute!!!! The bath picture is priceless...I'm sure he's forgiven you by now!

BTW, you should be using a clay clumping litter with a kitten anyway, some of them will eat it, or get it stuck to them like he did...if they ingest it, it could lead to digestive blockages.

I had heard that about the litter so I asked my breeder who said that he was using the clumping at his house and there wasn't a problem because he was older (12 weeks) but I thought that I remembered it to be a problem and that we had not used it with Janet but I was like ok whatever the breeder says (very reputable breeder and Janets breeder) but after seeing the mess that Walter made yesterday i went and bought some plain old clay litter.... which he has strewn around his crate so I am going to head out and buy some yesterdays news.... which is so much cleaner..... but yeah I had heard that about clumping litter as well.....

oh well I will remember for next time.....

thanks for the kind words about walter, he is pretty darned cute... and VERY vocal.... which is odd for a ragdoll .

If Walter is too vocal for your house I will gladly take him off of your hands. He is very sweet, and Janet looks likes she is going to be a perfect big sister.

When Charlee was in her "water" period - which included ending up in the litter box, I had a "breaded kitty" several times. Ugh! That bath picture is hysterical!

Walter is adorable!

When I got Holly I use non-clumping long enough to know that she wasn't inclined to eat it or play in the box much. Then I switched to a corn based clumping...Worlds Best. Which I hated, but at least knew if she did ingest it, it wasn't nearly as concerning as regular clay.
