Hi, we got out first ever cat today from the local animal shelter :D , he's a black, short haired, 9 year old called Sooty (he already had this name), and he's very inquisitive. (I would post some pictures, but i don't have a digital camera, i'll be getting one soon though!)

Just a quick question, is it normal for a new cat not to eat much when it first moves in? because Sooty has only had a couple of bites...he sniffs at it, then walks away (the food is the same stuff as he was being fed at the shelter)

Hey, and welcome!
Its great to hear you rescued and saved the life of a kitty!
In the first few days, up to pushing a week it is normal for her/him not to have much of an appetite- its pretty scarey in this new house ya know! It is also not unusual for them to have an accident, just make sure you clean it up well!

Welcome to the forum, sooty sound like a lovely cat, it does take a cat a few days to settle in I have 4 cats 3 of them I only got 2 weeks ago and Radar is still settling in yet he still hides under the bed alot, it will take time but they will get there soon

the story behind my nic isn't that exciting...i was signing up for something about 2 years ago and the username i wanted wasn't available, so it came up with a list of suggested usernames and this was one of them, the nic's kinda stuck after 2 years :)

also, i couldn't wait till next month to get a digital camera, so i bought it early :D , hopefully i can get some photos of Sooty soon (that's if he doesn't stop moving when i try and take his picture :wink: )
