I Have to Get these two Kittens!

Hi everyone! New guy here. I want to get a kitten/kittens. People are all telling me get two as one will be lonely. Others tell me get one as two will keep you awake all night. I'm torn. I saw this and want to adopt these two cats...Elliott and Violet.

Check the link above...man, I cant believe people would do that to a cat, as in Elliotts case! So sad....I am definitely interested in these two. I have to learn how much to feed them. When? Dry or wet? Lots to learn yet but I'm willing to give it a whirl. Any advice would be much appreciated, thanks!

Re: I Have to Get these two Kittens!

Get both, get both, get both!!!!

I'm speaking from experience. Kittens have so much energy, they need a little running partner. Not sure if that'll help you sleep, I put my twins in their bedroom every night. It's all they've ever known. But members here have lots of tricks and hints about getting through the night with kittens.

Poor little Elliott!

They're both adorable, run, don't walk!

Oh, mostly wet food - and you can feed kittens all they want!

Others will give you advice on exact amounts, but they burn up soooo many calories running around that you won't have to worry about kittens getting fat!

I see you have four cats. Wow, is it a lot of work? You must be cleaning Litterboxes all day! Cat hair everywhere? Do you let them outside?

Re: I Have to Get these two Kittens!

I have three litter boxes, I clean them at least once a day, but it only takes about 2 minutes to scoop all three. They all have long hair, but only Cleo's is noticeable. On my pillow and the sheet next to me. Looks like I sleep with a cave man! They have toys and 5 cat trees and 9 window sills they can sit on. There are two bird feeders they watch outside. They do NOT go outside. It's not safe where I live - dogs, evil teenagers, coyotes, poison, traffic, etc.

It's really not much work, they're so fun to watch, especially the twins. They give me so much love and companionship. Cleo comforts me when I'm down. She's my talker.

Find a good vet and make sure you have money put aside in case something happens.

I can't imagine not having my girls in my life.

Re: I Have to Get these two Kittens!

Yes, get both! We currently have eight, and I occasionally foster litters of kittens, so the numbers in our house fluctuate...but it is GREAT FUN! I also found that my *best* kitties were a Trio from the same litter, two brothers and a sister. They did *everything* together; eat, sleep, play...everything. Anywhere one was, you knew the other two weren't far behind.

Well, their all gorgeous! Sounds like you love them all! The Vet...that's something lots of people keep telling me that I'll end up paying thousands of dollars in the long run with the two of them. Hey, I have four daughters, I can handle two more kids!

Eight cats!? Wow, how many Litterboxes do you have? Yes, I'm leaning to getting both. I'll be meeting them tomorrow and as soon as I see them both, I KNOW I'll want them both!
