It’s Settled.. We’re Getting A Cat

… well, a kitten actually

A four month old kitten that had been rescued by Chief’s cousin Bird when she found her and her litter mates abandoned at around 2 weeks old.

Bird is like that.. a lot like me when it comes to animals.

At any rate .. Bird was telling me yesterday that she needs to reduce the size of her menagerie because they’re getting harder and harder to afford. Her menagerie includes the four kittens, two dogs, a load of snakes, hampsters, etc.

Basically anything with fur.. paws.. tails or skin that sheds.

So I talked it over with Chief.. and even if he would prefer an actual “kitten” kitten, Bird’s kitten is already used to dogs and uses the litter box.

THAT was important because my main reason for objecting to having another cat is the fact that I never really had one before and never had to train one before so I was at a loss… Since no one is home for the better part of the day, I was afraid that getting a kitten would mean MORE animal pissing around the house.

So this seems to be the perfect solution although I am.. really.. still apprehensive about it. But I’m even more apprehensive about the mouse (mice) and reading up on them, I only have so long to procrastinate before I’m over-run with them.

But we shall see..

I’m picking her up today…

    Aww, I can’t wait to see pictures. I love cats, my first word was “kitty” and I have never not owned a cat, until now that is. Moving across the globe does that I guess, but you should see me chasing after street cats here!

    Cats are really good about the litter box usually because they prefer to dig before they do their business. The only time they’re prone to pissing on things is if they accidentally get shut into a room with no box, OR the litter box is really dirty. But both can be prevented. Oh speaking litter boxes, this one is the best one ever: http://www.omegapaw.com/RollAwayReg.html
    Easiest one to clean, no scooping! They have them at most of the big pet store chains, or on amazon.

    Oh good, I’m glad you like them. I used to have two of those boxes. I’m going to have one shipped to Turkey whenever I get a new kitty.
