Hi everyone!

Im Alison, and just about to adopt two rescue kittens which we have named Mao and Neko. Complete novice, but doing my reading before we pick them up next weekend.

Wish me luck, and if anyone has any good hints or tips for the first couple of weeks i would be eternally grateful

Thanks for the warm welcome!!

Things have taken an odd turn and it looks like the two kittens we were going to adopt, have been adopted by someone who has got in ahead of us

We do however have the choice of a brother (black) and sister (tortoiseshell), but they were not our first choice. Sounds childish but im quite gutted.

Do have friends however who have a queen and 5 kittens (aparently only a week old) who may be available for adoption to good homes. Will be obviously a good wait of 7 weeks till they can leave mum so would require patience all over again.

Anyone got any bright ideas or advice? Glad they have found homes though

Oh and in reply to the question, Neko is phonetically Japanese for cat, and Mao is Chinese for cat. Thought they were lovely unusual names and will be saved for the lucky pair if they suit! x

Why don't you want to adopt the two who are available for adoption now (little black male and torti sister) ? To me, ANY cat or kitten is adoptable, and anyone who needs a home would find it with me, if I had space! Those are my thoughts and ideas...
post #15 of 26
Thats both good and bad the two you had picked have been adopted already. Why do you not like the other two? Any particular reason?

Anyway, welcome to TCS! Hope you can "assign" those two beautiful names to some kittens soon!

Hello & welcome to the forum. That was bad luck, but, as said why not take the other 2?

Will probably be taking the other two so do not worry folks, it was just such a shame that the ones my hubby had fallen for have been pinched first! Very excited about seeing them saturday

GOSH, DOES THAT SOUND LIKE A GOOD IDEA!!! They are adorable (as each and every cat and kitten is, in a unique way) and they need a forever, loving home. Win/Win!

Well, the two rescue kittens were adopted before we got there - pipped to the post! We have now picked our two new family members however from a litter of 5. They are still with mum, only 2 weeks old and absolutely adorable!
