    Default New kitten

    So yesterday at the feed store they had a sign FREE KITTENS and of course one had to come home with me. He's ginger/orange tabby and about 9 weeks old.

    In the past I have always acquired older cats. I currently have 3.

    Weasley is in the hay barn in the cage I have used or my other adoptees. I have been leaving them caged for a month or so though I might leave him in there until he is bigger. He has ood and water and a litter box o course and I take him out several times a day to cuddle. He is very friendly, a nice change from the TNR's.

    Any thing else i should be doing?

    He wants to be a house cat, not a barn cat.

    I got one too! I've been looking for a special type of calico for years; our 18 year old kitty passed this spring. Someone on FB posted a calico kitten they got - and I knew that was my kitten! I told them if she didn't work out that I would take her. Took two weeks..she's a real spitfire bundle of energy and they live in a one bedroom apartment with two medium size dogs. Here is her picture!

    Yup, you should be keeping him in the house with you. Then you can show us lots of pictures of all his cuteness!

    Of course we need pictures, but couldn't a nine week old kitten socialize with you in your home, and then migrate to the barn?

    That's what I was thinking. That way he'd have the best of both worlds. Oh and so we can see pics of the cutie orange lad!

    No. Dachshunds and cats don't mix well. My last house cat lived with the dogs for years. I don't know what set the dogs off but it did not end well for the cat. I don't care for a repeat.

    Weasley is doing well in the barn but he likes to sleep in the kitty liter box
