Hey Cats!
Because mewmy can't take me to the USA, she is going to get new kittens. Because it has been 11 years since she and Nanna went shopping from scratch, what products should we buy and which should we avoid?
Mewmy is thinking of buying a cat stroller, because she doesn't want to cart the kittens back and forth from the vet, which is only a few blocks from the apartments, for her school. Any suggestions on those?
Also, the kittens will primarily be indoors in a small apartment for the first two years.. How should mewmy keep them entertained while she is at classes?
Mewmy will be getting her new babies in October, after moving in to the apartment in September.
The kittens will need cat carriers as well, due to having to be with mom for Christmas and other holidays. Should mewmy buy hard or soft carriers? We have had both and both seem to work... Thank you all SO much, and please tell us ANY and all advice you may have.
By The Way: Mewmy has already picked names for her new babies... Please rate 1-5 -- 1 being worst and 5 being best... and why...

Thank You Cats For EVEFURRYTHING!!!
Love Sunrise

P.S. or we might possibly get some older fur-babies 18 months?

Sunshine's Mom:

There are so very many older cats in shelters who need homes, would you consider giving two of them a home. Especially with all the homes being foreclosed people are giving their cats to shelters, or even worse, just leaving them in the house. As far as carriers, I like the soft ones, you can fold them to store, and they don't weight as much as hard carriers.

Visit local shelters, look for two cats who are already bonded and adult. The love and companionshship they will give you cannot be measured. And, since you said you will be attending school, they will not mind being alone while you are at school. Kittens have LOTS of energy, and would need more attention than two grown cats.

Good luck, and keep us posted. If you do decide on kittens, two are still better, as they keep each other occupied.

My sister and I come from a litter of three. Mom took me, and my middle sister. The tiniest sister was spoken for already.
She always says she is soo glad she took both of us.
She knows we have been a comfort to each other when she and Dad
had to be gone at work.
She would have worried too much about any kitten left behind also.
We play together, get in trouble together, it is never a dull moment.
We are one now, and still coming into our own. If no tiny kittens are available, an older cat would be fun, too. (less destructive, too laugh out loud

She looks forward to our little surprises........

Kittens are nice but I don't think I'd want to raise them into adults again lol BeBe and Nasty were a handlful and these lil' ones I just fostered were terrors. Older cats are def. the way to go.

Yes, especially if keeping them busy indoors while the Mewmy is at school is an issue; I think I'd look for a full grown pair of cats who came to the shelter together--this is very, very, common and some rescue groups wwon't even separate such pairs. Either way--good luck--and by the way, what is happening to the kitty who does not get to go? I worry about us old kitties!

i have to speak up for older cats. they make better pets then kittens because you allready know how they act. kittns you can raise from birth and they still dont turn out how you want. plus, there our rescues out there (mine for example) that have GREAT young adults who are fixed and have shots for under 30 bucks.

not many people will consider older cats and its sad, because its the older cats who are the ones who get put to sleep at shelters. there will ALLWAYS be homes for cute kittens.
