About to adopt shelter kitty

Hello, I'm 23 from southern IL, and am currently Kittyless. My husband and I hope to change this in the not so distant future. We origonaly had decided to wait untill late Jan to adopt, but as this christmas has been full of supprises he decided we should go this saturday to the local humane society!!! I am SO SO SO excited. I've lived with kitties my entire life and this is the longest i've ever been without one.

I'll be sure to post pics as soon as we adopt, but because we are in the beginning stage of looking I cant promise immediate results.

We are looking to adopt a male, under a year but not extreamly kittenish anymore, and preferably declawed. I personally dont like the idea of declawing, but the apartment we live in requires it. So I'm looking for one that has already BEEN declawed. I just cant put an animal through that.

I've read around on the forum and you all seem very nice and extreamly helpfull. Though I may not post too often (except in picture sections ) Be sure that I'll be around reading appreciating people who are just as passionate about the furry little faces as I am

It sounds great that you're going to adopt a cats that's already been declawed rather than declawing one that's "entire". However, if you find a sweet declawed guy, make sure that he doesn't have any behavioral disorders caused by the declawing. Somteimes cats can get behavioral disorders after being declawed, and not all declawings are perfevt. Sometimes the claws start to grow again. So make sure that the cat it healthy both mentally and physically.

Otherwise I wish all the luck with the new kitty.
