Just got a new black persian this weekend

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
my son and i received a black persian this weekend. after much discussion, we decided that this new addition would be welcomed into our home. at first, i was hesistant because to tell you the truth i always have been afraid of cats. we decided to name him Max, and he is 10 weeks old. we have no clue what to do, as far as feeing him, taking him to the vet, ect. Max was a gift from my son's father. any help would be appreciated.

p.s. when do you get a cat declawed. he is already starting to tear at things around the house?

I moved your food related qwuestion to the health area. This I am leaving here because it is an introduction. Welcome to the cat site. As for the de clawing question. The majority of us here are VERY against declawing. It involves cutting off their first knuckles. It is considered inhumane and illegal in many countries. There are many ways to teach them to use scratching posts and other acceptable places. Cats are highly trainable ands can learn where to scratch. I have 11 cats and none of my furniture is touched. We all would be happy to give you advice if you decide not to declaw. Just post it in the behavior forum where people will see it.
