New with a new kitten!

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hi I am a new member to the site from Northern GA. I adopted a 10 week old orange tabby boy from the Gwinnett County Animal Shelter on Saturday! The Shelter is very nice for a county shelter and requires all kittens over 3lbs to be fixed before they can leave the shelter. My boy was 3.2 lbs so he is getting fixed Monday and coming home Tuesday.

He doesn't quite have a name yet but here is his picture.

I need suggestions for names but not sure this thread is a place to find that help. Can someone direct me there?

I am excited to be apart of this forum!

Welcome to you and your cute lil' boy!

Names here are quite varied and some have themes. Sometimes something in his personality will spark a name. Even then, nicknames often take over. ( Some even nice enough to mention in the forum. )

Thanks! I am thinking about naming him Chuki (Chew-key). It's the nickname for the type of car I have (Nissan 240sx, my other baby!). It's Japanese and I feel it's unique.

Once I bring him home then I will decide for sure.

Other names ive been thinking of are Walter and Edward.

Hello & welcome to tcs. He is gorgeous. From the 2nd pic, how about Stretch? Blossom got her name from her bright face that reminds me of a flower.

Funny how shelter pics can actually bring a smile to your face, when you know someone is going home.

He's beautiful.

He's home and very happy! Hes been energetic and wearing himself out so right now he's sleeping.

I'm afraid that he might of caught a cold from the pound. His eyes are a little gooey and hes been sneezing a little.

Just wanted to update! will update more later.

You should definitely run him past your own vet for a checkup. In fact, our shelter requires an independent vet check within 3 business days, with a refund if he finds something that you are unwilling to deal with.

That said, all our shelter cats have come home with a URI. Treated them, and they're just fine.

Im expecting that he has a URI. My last kitten from the same shelter had one. He will be seeing the vet soon, I hate to see him not feeling his best!

Chuki seemed worse today so I took him to the vet as soon as I could. They said he has a cold and prescribed him Clavamox. He has been sleeping a lot and sneezing quite a bit.

It is almost impossible to give him the medicine.. Can you mix the liquid with anything so he won't know what it is?

I really hopes he gets better soon and not any worse

Hi from Atlanta!! Your kitten is beautiful!

I hope he feels better soon!! Doesn't the medicine already come in some sort of dairy flavor or yogurt? That's how mine was a while back...
