     Yes!...He is here, and we love him! A few meows, and he settled right in with us. You would think he had lived here all his life...already used the litter box...chasing a feather on a string...took a nap with us. I think we picked a good one! My wife is so happy with him...and I'm playing second fiddle now! :( We will try to post some photo as soon as possible. He is going to be a big one, and I think he will reach every bit of 25lbs. Were eager to see how he does the first night with us...and hoping he will sleep with too. Thanks for asking..and we will keep you posted on how it goes the next few days with him.

Hi Screaming Eagle,

Congratulations on the new addition! We got a kitten about 6 months ago, and she keeps us entertained. She is a small one though and I think she's going to stay that way.

We had tried twice before to bring a kitten home and our other cat would have nothing of it, so I was not hopeful that it would work out. We took her with the understanding that we could take her back if it didn't work out. Well, the kitten, as small as she was, stood up to our other cat from day one!

We are having a little trouble with her the last couple of weeks, she has been a bad girl and peed on some things. She used the litter box from day one, but all of the sudden we are having a problem. It is always on something - my son's winter coat that was laying on the floor, a pile of my other son's clothes that he brought home from college, on a bathmat, etc. I think it is behavioral, but I don't know why.

Anyway, I wish you the best, and look forward to seeing some pictures. One of these days, I will learn how to put pictures on my computer!

Take care,
Lorie

Good morning all!...My Lady..and Lorie....looks like he has adopted us, and the children are at their dads...so this gives us a week to bond with him. He has found the water bowl and the food, and I saw him using the litter box last night as well. My Lady..he weighs about 3lbs and is 10weeks old...I'm a guessing that that is on the large size for the age...but this is my first kitty...so I don't know too much about what I'm talking about. I think we have called him Mieko, or Meeko, or Miko...but it will have that sound to it. All in all, we are very pleased with him. I was afraid he would onlu bond to one of us...but he seems to have adoped us as Mommy and Daddy...sleeps right in the middle of us...follows us like a puppy....so much fun and is a delight to be around. My Lady...when you are ready for one..we will get you set up...and I think you really need one too...does wonders for the soul too! Lori...I would be the wrong one to help you out with your peeing problem...but I know there are plenty of cat lover's here that may have a few suggestions for you. My lady, I cant wait for you to get all settled with you moving...and or shutting down the business...I think a kitty will be just the ticket for you. We just love the breed that we picked out...and please look them up on the internet (Rag Doll)....we are very pleased with our selection. Take care to the both of you...and I will get some photos posted as soon as possible. I'm also in the process of shutting down, or actually transfering my business to the new owner....and it is a lot of work. I feel so Sick...with all the pains of my body tearing at my soul...but I have done much better with the new meds...so not much crying from me on this. PaLAdy..I'm kinda like White Beard...if I lived closer to you I would help you all I could....Looks like this is as close as it gets though...and I have a little help for you when you ready and settled in to accept a kitty. I hope to go visit Privey soon...she lives pretty close to us...and seems like such a sweet lady. Enjoy your day now!
 
I know that I mess up alot of my post with miss spellings..and the such...and it comes from the meds that I'm on now,...so just forgive me right now...and I'm sure you all can get the jest of what what I'm trying to say.

Michael

Lorie,
when introducing a new cat/kitten into a house with an established cat is hard, you need to keep the new cat/kitten
in a small room and let the established cat have run of the house except for this one room and the introduction can take weeks...
I kept little Dimitri away from the other two cats for 3 1/2 weeks and then slowly introduced him to the other two cats..
that was back in August and they are finally now getting to know each other and all are playing good...You might want to
take your older cat into the vet if the peeing continues, but your porbably right in it being a behavorial problem and that
you should try to give this older cat more attention for a few days.....

Wow Screaming, way to go on the bonding..and yeah lil kittens can follow you around like a puppy, just be careful and look
everywhere for him before stepping around, my hubby stepped on dimitri once (not intentional) and well he bonded less to him
for that...so watch your step literally...even a 3lb mass of fur can be hard to see sometimes...
Good luck to ya...

HUGZ

Hi Char:

Thank you for the advice. It is the kitten that is doing the deed, not the adult cat, and for the life of me, I can not figure out why. She has always used the cat box just fine until the last couple of weeks.

I did keep the kitten penned up for the first several weeks, and I think that is the reason that is why Britney was more tolerant this time, that and the fact that the new kitten has stood up to her from day one. She even stands up to my dog who is a german shepherd/black lab mix, so she is a decent size dog.

I am going to go over the areas again where I know she has gone with my carpet cleaning machine with a product from Sam's Club that is specifically for animal odor problems. Hopefully that will take any residual scent away, so she will not return to those spots again.

Screaming: I am very happy that you and your wife are having so much fun with your new little one. I am sure she will bond beautifully with both of you, and she will be a great comfort when you are recouperating from your surgery.

Take care,

Lorie

Lorie,
I'd take the advice of Chartreux and maybe Bionic will pop in here and other cat "specialists". I've only had one indoor cat in my life, although he did have some problems missing the litter box, especially when he got older. Vet told me to take the top off (it was a covered one) and he was fine then - although it was messier litter scooped over the edge of the box. He was like a little shovel when covering up his deeds! But I think your problem is very different. I do know it's almost impossible to really get that odor out of a carpet. I found some liquid enzyme product at a cleaning supply store (a specialty store that sells to those who clean institutional settings) and it's used in nursing homes and such so it's safe. It's one of the rare things that has taken odors away.

Screaming - he sounds so cute! But I would get a shelter cat, that much I know. But I do have other things in my life to consider before I make the decision, as I don't want to have to give a cat up if I end up moving out of my house. We'll all enjoy watching your kitty grow up, and since you're a photographer you have no excuses for not sharing! LOL

Lorie,
Dr. Smith and Foster's have a product that targets cat urine smell in particular..so petsmart and petco might have
something too, if it's the kitten, then the kitten could be sick with FUS so maybe a trip to the vet to check for fus, uninary trac
infections are more common in the female felines...

Screaming sure hope the lil kitten is giving you a fun time...

HUGZ to all....

I too would get the kitten checked out at the vet for a UTI. These can be very dangerous for a cat!

Screaming, can't wait to see the new kitty pics. Like the name with different spellings too. Congrats....

Ok! We have photos to upload of the Kitty, and went to Chutzy's husband's photo site...but were not able to register without getting an error message. I sent Chutz a message...and we will try to get them up and on the web, so you all can enjoy him. He is a blast...and has way more energy than I have at this point...but we love him so much!

Screaming,
You may have to wait until Chutz and her hubby return from vacation. I'm sure they'll be more than willing to help but maybe later in the week (not sure when they're getting back).

I'll bet he's a cutie!

She is a beauty!!! I've never seen a cat like that. Make sure you add some pictures of her when she is full grown too. I'd like to see her when she gets dog size.

Your kitten is absolutely the most gorgeous cat I have ever seen! She needs to be in commercials or a kitty model! Congrats again on her!

I still owe you that e-mail, I will get to it, I promise.
