I'm getting the diffusers going...

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
...generating Feliway at both ends of my apartment.

I've stocked up on her wet and dry foods of choice.

My new giant litterbox has arrived in the mail, ready to be set up for my newcomer. (Thank you, Phenomsmoms! )

I'm glancing aound my apartment wondering what items should get packed away NOW, before there is a chance they will get tossed by a flying Bengal.

Hiding the paper towel rolls in the closet...concerns about the TP roll in the bathroom...

I need to buy a new water fountain, a bigger one, I think. She'll want to torture the others by splashing water on them...

I need to buy more litter...I have plenty of toys...I have vanilla extract, in case we have issues...(that worked with Ginger and Ferris, made her accept him easier)

Oh my...I'm preparing for a new furchild - am I forgetting anything? I've already notified my vet of my new arrival, they'll see her in Sept when the other two have their annual exams...

Have I got it covered? There must be SOMETHING I'm missing...

Do your kitties use cat beds? Its sometimes nice to have something that she can claim as "hers" when she arrives, somewhere that she can go and feel safe, you know?

Ferris uses one in the living room, and there are two others not in use, plus a double kitty hammock, not to mention the cat cubes, cat tent, and three cat trees in my tiny apartment. This place is totally set up for spoiled furbabies.

She's getting Penny, from Kai Bengals. I think she flies there near the end of the month to pick her up.

I do, too. I can't wait to meet her.

And I'm working on the wheel construction...I had a conversation with a contractor friend about it and got a lesson last night on silent wheel bearings.

She's just beautiful though! Look at her markings. And that tail she's holding up so proudly. You must be so excited. I'm excited just looking at the picture!

post #14 of 29
Ohhhh Penny you are so elegant and beautiful (and energetic )

I can't wait until you get her, and to hear all her antics!!!!
post #15 of 29
She's wonderful! She looks so intelligent. I think Ginger and Ferris have met their match.

How do you use the vanilla? A drop on your finger put on their necks?
post #16 of 29
Oh my goodness, what a fabulous cat! She truly does look like a wild creature!

I can just hear how thrilled you are -- congratulations! I can hardly wait for all the pictures and stories you'll have to share.

Sounds like you are preparing everything nicely.

You have forgotten one thing....a bottle of Champers for you when she arrives Ginger, Ferris and Penny can get all high and loved up on the Feliway, while you sit and admire your furbabies sipping champagne....

Only NINE MORE DAYS!



I am REALLY excited. And scared and nervous...it's all going to hinge on how Ginger handles the latest "intruder," LOL...

But I've been having DAILY talks with her, and I think she just might be ok, because I am continually reassuring her that although she may be tiny, she is THE reigning queen of my household, she will still be the oldest, the one with the most seniority, and she IS the boss kitty, no question about it.

I've told her that Penny is not going to give her any problems - she'll be too interested in wanting to play with Ferris, LOL...

And I am stressing that Ginger is NOT to give Penny a hard time - she needs to be NICE to her new sister.

Oh my...this is definitely going to be interesting.

Ginger was really good with Ferris other than being aloof wasnt she?
post #25 of 29
We will all be waiting to hear how the first weekend goes!
Does Penny have a special diet? Special litter?

Well, at the beginning, she growled and hissed and growled and hissed and growled - I never knew she could make noises like that!

But basically, she didn't just attack him outright as I had been afraid she might. I'll have to go back and read through my earlier threads, LOL...

You know, thinking about it - there is a good possibility that it might be a pretty easy intro! Maybe I'm worried for nothing - I hope so!

But Ferris was a 3 month old kitten, and Penny is almost 2 and is bigger than Ginger is in size and weight, so she might be more threatening - plus she's a she, LOL. I got Ferris because I thought a male kitten would be the easiest for Ginger to accept. (and because I wanted a ginger boy, LOL...)

Hmmmm....

The litter Nial uses is Swheat Scoops (sp?) I believe, but he said she should be ok with the Arm & Hammer I use.

She is on Royal Canin 34 dry, and Sheba Chicken & Duck wet. (Expensive taste in wet, she has!)

So I am all stocked up on both. I hope to be able to shift her over to the grain-free dry foods that I am currently feeding the other two (Nature's Variety Raw Instinct mixed with Serengeti.) We'll see how it goes.

i got a new fountain for mine this spring. a dog-sized version of their other one - the petmate freshflow. it's nice not having to refill the fountain as often!

So exciting! She is such a beautiful girl.

Sounds like you have everything well planned out, so all that's left is the introductions! Good luck!
