So advice from someone who has fostered over 70 kittens in the last 2 years, raising them from tiny babies up to adoptable weight is bad?

As much as I adore the idea of rescuing a stray cat I just cant.  I guess I could say I got a lot on my plate, mentally and physically and emotionally,  re homing and correcting a adult stray cat is simply not for me.





Where did I say adult cat? Dude, I guarantee there are DOZENS of kittens the same age as the one you got, just waiting to be adopted in a shelter near you. You don't have to adopt a stray cat, even if you were looking for an adult cat (I know you're not) there are tons of surrendered adult cats that were just someone's pet. Not every adult cat is a stray.

And wtf u said I wanted to declaw her???????? I said I'm gonna call her Chloe, like the cat from secret life of pets :facepalm:




What I said was:

B. You never mentioned this at all, but NEVER get your cat declawed.








Which I mentioned, because you'd been excitedly making very poor choices for your kitten since you bought her. Declawing is also a very poor choice, so I figured I would just get ahead of you there.

Judging by the amount of research you've done into how to care for a kitten, no, I think you haven't.

I was a little harsh in tone. I apologize for that. It just really bothers me seeing someone get a pet without having researched how to care for that pet and what owning that pet entails. It's not a small decision, you've committed time and money and effort to this cat for the next 15+ years. Why didn't you find out how to introduce a kitten to a new home, what to feed it, why it should get spayed or neutered?

You're going to need to find a good vet, get her shots on time, make sure she's litter trained, clean the litter box a minimum of once a day, research a healthy diet, etc. I understand a lot can go on behind the scenes of our posting, but your posts sounded a lot like "I wanted a kitten, I bought a kitten, YAAAAAYYYYY now I have a kitten!!"

Also, a kitten that young will need a minimum of several hours of play per day. If she starts getting bored and acting out by tearing things up, peeing or pooping outside the litter box, etc, that's possibly why.

Not exactly, the whole point of this thread was to discuss male / female gender specific aspects. Not how to cater for cats.

This isn't my first cat, and yea I agree with what u said there, what to do etc

My cat is also retarded and refuse to drink for the water bowl. I learn that he drank from the tap. So investigating a little i learnt that there are little water fountains for cats, they cost like 20€ and since it is water flowing it is more likely for them to drink for it.

I used to give him BARF diet, but it is expensive and in summer (here we get over 40Cº) the food goes bad ultrafast, so i went back to solid food, which makes he shit like the triple of amount.

If she does not shit by herself, buy those little sticks with cottons that we humans use to clean our ears (i dont know the word in english) wet them a little and use it to "lick" her anus. I know it sounds perverted, but i swear to god is something their mothers do and it help them.
Hold her and make her used to you handling her, moving her and make visits touch her and handle her too. It will make her trust more in you and other humans contact.
Male cats are easier, female cats are harder and usually bond stronger with one human and worse with anything else, work on that. (but behaviour across races is really diferent and with multiple race cat you can expect anything)


Also, there are "contraceptives" for cats, you might really want to keep an eye on them and talk with the vet about it if you don't want it to be castrated. Female cats are insane in heat, like, it is so annoying you will end up putting her in the over or something, they suffer so much that they meow non stop for hours, expect also to wake up with cats pussy on your face.

There was a really heartbreaking story that was going around a few days ago, where a family's missing cat of like 6 years suddenly showed back up. But it was in dire shape and two days later had to be put down.

Really sad but at the same time, a pretty remarkable happy ending if you think about it -- it was as if the cat, which was a full blown stray at that point, came home one last time to say goodbye.

So the family at least got to see their cat one last time. And the cat reportedly lived for 19 years or so, which is a pretty full life for a cat.

I use it everytime i move places with my cat (once a year more or less, i had romeo for 3 years now). It works wonders, my sister used it when she adopted a new one (she had an old cat 13 years old) and it also worked well for those cats.

It lowers their anxiety and makes them eat, drink and shit more relaxed. No more "saying under the bed for 3 days".
