i just got a new cat last sunday. it is starting to adapt. although i have no choice but to put it in the playhouse 70 percent of the time. we got the kitten but my mom is afraid of him therefore we cant have him out the playhouse 7 hours of the day and all night! the play house is the type that kids use, we have the kittens food,water,litter, and bed in there. although when i put he in there before we go to sleep or before we go to sleep he meow's alot. is he mad or wat....when we put it in the playhouse he tries to escape, but we have no choice. it meow alot and then it quiets down, will it get used to it soon or wat? is this unhealthy for the cat? i try the best for it although i must do put it in the garage..in the playhouse at night and during school hours. any advise

Why did you get this kitten? Kittens need a lot of socializing, playtime and training. Why can't you keep the kitten in a closed room of the house?

*scratches head*

Why in the world would your mom be afraid of a kitten? You know you can't let the kitten grow up in a small room like that..

It does make one wonder why you would get a kitten if it has to be confined the majority of the time. This is not a good life for a pet, especially a young one. At least in the shelter it got attention from morning to evening and was only alone overnight (and even then had other animals in the area that he could smell and maybe see).

A few hours a day of socializing is not adequate. A kitten wants (and needs) to be part of a family. It is not a toy to be taken out and enjoyed for a few hours and then put away at your convenience. You might want to reconsider your decision.

Why does he cry and want to escape? Because he's lonely and miserable. What did you think?

Cheers,
Dr. Jean

Poor kitty, although the play house may be bigger than the cage at the shelter, its still kinda sad considering that this baby cat is all alone, no one to see or play while locked up and of course it will meow b/c it doesn't want to be in a playpen, it wants be out roaming about. Seems like the cat is just a convenience toy, just there to come out when its ok......I feel so bad for kitty......I'm sorry I don't have any advice, I wouldn't of adopted a cat if it had to be locked up most of the time :cry:
