Betty's Kitten Adoption Agency Newsletter

Well, I might have someone who's willing to take Mickey the kitten in, if he gets a clean bill of health. Of course, at this point I almost don't want to give the little guy up, but there's no question that it would be best for all concerned. I already feel bad about trying to split my limited attention between him and the three older cats, because there's no way there's enough to go around. Keeping my fingers crossed that the vet will have good things to say at his next appointment...

  1. How did kitten work out with the older cats?

  2. Well, the kitten and the older cats still pretty much only know each other as interesting smells and sounds on the other side of a door. Since we were concerned about disease, the vet advised continuing to keep him isolated from the others for now. I'm hoping that'll get lifted soon, as I'd really like to let him out of the spare bedroom. Although if he's going to be leaving soon after that, it may not be worth the trauma of trying to integrate him into the existing cat household. If I do, though, at least the long separation period should be helpful, as they are all very used to his scent and his (mostly unseen) presence by now.

  3. When I brought a new cat into the house, the new cat would hiss and try to beat down the door to get to the old cat. So if that's not happening then I would say they are doing well.

  4. I like the title of your post much better than "Crazy Betty's Home for Wayward Felines". :)

  5. They have poked and hissed at the door occasionally, but not nearly as much as I would have expected.
