Ok joking aside how did he do with his neuter? How long do they keep him? Im assuming its about the same as taking your own kitty in to be fixed.
|Well, boy or girl, Carmella/o is one adorable cougar. I agree that Karma and Carmello are good suggestions... Actually, I just did a google search on "Carmello" and it looks like "Carmelo" (one 'l') is the more frequently-used masculine spelling.|
|Do Boris and Amber use the litter box and scratch post like a domestic would?|
|Also, you talked about Carmelo loving to be held and pet and stuff when you went to the vet, but when he gets older holding him will not be physically possible. Will he still get to live indoors when he is very large? He sounds like he is very friendly for a couger, or is that normal for a kitten/cub?|
|When i contradicted my science teacher about it being impossible to live with wild animals, i told her about your success, and she said it would be a good science project to find out if RESPONSIBLE owners of exotic cats are ever injured by their pets when they ARE careful. I would love to do a project about that because it relates to cats. You are the only exotic pet owner i have "met", so do you know any good books on the subject or owners i could talk to?|

I only have two more questions for now. How did you introduce amber to your exotics when she was a kitten, in regards to HER safety? Even she was tiny once. For boris, how did you introduce him to the domestics AND amber when he was tiny?

|Do you have any friends on this or other site(s) with exotics? I only need to talk to five people.|
|Could Boris's problem with Carmelo in the begining was a result of him knowing Carmelo was a BOY? I was just wondering. You were so worried about his behavior. We humans may have a problem with telling male from female but I know animals don't!|
|The idea of a cat facility sounds mighty cool!|

Aww... I bet Amber and Boris were so cute sitting in the shopping cart as little cubs. Just curious: Do you take them along when you buy groceries? You know.... human stuff... ?
