My family was always a dog family. We’ve had dogs since before I could walk. The only cat we ever owned (a stray we took in) was, tragically, killed by a dog.
But anyway, I’ve since moved out and have decided to get a kitten. Went down to the shelter today and picked out a 3-month-old gray kitten. I chose him because he was the only cat in the shelter who wasn’t screaming for my attention when I walked in. He was too busy playing with the toys in his cage to notice me.
I got him at a discount because he was set to be put down in less than a week. He gets neutered this Tuesday and I can pick him up Wednesday. My roomate also adopted a puppy, who’ll be picked up Thursday.
My roomate currently has two older cats: one is 15 and the other is 12. We’re hoping that they’ll get along with the new animals.
So, dopers, any tips for a first-time kitten owner? I’m going shopping tommorow for kitty food and toys, so place your orders!
