Kairi The Kitty's Here!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 


Hey everyone! My name is Kairi the Kitty. I just joined the message board.

I hope everyone here is as friendly as my Daddy Mikey . ...

lol I dunno if I can post a whole message pretending to be a kitten. Hey everyone. My name is Michael. But you can call me Mike, or whatever. I just got my first kitten last night. and boy what an adventure. She still is a bit homesick I think. But I wrote a big blog about it below. If you have the time read it and comment.

Thanks ahead of time for all the comments and "Aww what a cuties" I am sure I'll get She really is adorable. I picked her name from the game Kingdom Hearts if you ever heard of it. There is a girl named Kairi. If it was a boy I was going to name him Sora. I still think he might be a boy. I made a video on youtube about that too:

Well I got Kairi last night at Petsmart. She came from Scottsville Veterinary Adoptions. They say she is a girl so I am going to trust them. I am not so sure. The lady also said she was already fixed. But the lady didn't work for the adoption center.

I don't think she has been fixed yet because the paperwork says "To Come Back" for Spray/Neuter. But the lady said she was already done and they don't let any animals out without that being done first. So I was a bit confused about that. All in all the first night was an adventure! I bought tons of toys, a bed for her, a scratch post, two bowls, the kitty litter & box, and of course a few treats.

When we took her home I closed off the kitchen & bathroom for just her. So she could have an area that wasn't too much to take in at once. I put the kitty litter box in the bathroom, and the food and water in the kitchen. And then my girlfriend and I put Kairi in the kitty litter box and just let her go. I made a video of it. Maybe I'll post it on youtube later. But she just kinda sniffed around and got a feel for the place. She was pretty quiet for a while. Then Obama was on the TV andI had to watch that for a little bit, so my girlfriend suggested letting her see if she wanted to see the living room. So I told her she could unblox it, and see if she came in on her own.

Of course she did. So Karen (my girlfriend) played with Kairi on the ground for a bit. This is where we found her love for the laser pointer. Best money ever. She chased it for a good five mintues! Then she got bored of it and went to some more exploring. I really need to find a better place for a lot of my cords. I will do a bit of research today on that and kitty safe my place a little bit more.

So after Obama it was getting a bit late. So I put Kairi back in her kitty litter box (i read somewhere you should do that often so they remember where it is) and she got out almost instantly. But I bloxed the living room off. and went to take karen home. When I got back she wasn't meowing, and was in the bathroom behind the toilet. She goes back there a lot. It was 11:30 and for me that's super earily but I was exausted. So I imagined Kairi must have been pretty tired too, even if she didn't know it.

So I refilled her water. (Oh this is kinda funny: she always puts her paw in the water, and splashes it and will take a couple sips.) So what else? I know this is a bit long but I want it to be detailed you know? She really didn't eat much, she didn't eat the catnip I got her at first. But then later on when it was on the flooer she did. And she barily touched her food. I think she might have eaten a bit after I went to sleep because in the morning the bowl was a little bit lower.

But I don't remember how high it was. So maybe we just didn't fill it all the way. So I layed down. Put the stove light on for her so she woulnd't be scared. and then it started. Meow... meow... meow... but it only lasted about 15 minutes. I just ignored it. I read somewhere you have to or they will keep meowing to make you come back and you or her will never get sleep. But after 15 minutes she stopped. and either went to sleep or went exploring I am not sure.

I passed out and woke up a couple times over the night. But she wasn't really meowing much. Maybe once in a great while. Then this morning at about 8am my alarm went off. And I woke up. and checked on her. She RAN away really really fast. I think I scared her. So I just took her water bowl and got fresh clean cold water.

And refilled her dish. And brushed my teeth. Then went over the Kiari and gave her some love. And set her next to her new water and food. She actaully was eating when I left for work today. So I am really glad about that. Kairi is SUPER small. You can feel her bones.

I wonder if she was eating at Petsmart. I am going to call them later today and ask them a bunch of questions. But all I am super excited about having the kitty. I've never had a kitty all by myself before.

If you can point me to any good reads feel free! And also please tell me anything you want about how to make Kairi's new home better for her.

My boyfriend said that if we get another cat, that it's going to be a male and we're naming him Sora. According to him, Namine is another character in the game, and that's what our other cat is named after. My boyfriend is a Kingdom Hearts freak; he loves the game.
