Thank you, I can't believe how much she has grown in 2 weeks. I was able to hold her in my palm, now shes about 12in long and playing like crazy! I forgot to mention that I kind of have another cat, but he's actually my sisters, his names Milo, poor cat, always getting beat up outside. I do plan on getting Lucy spayed and know of a place that does it for half the cost. Thanks everyone for replying, I hope to use this site very often.

Is Milo neutered?? If not...I would get neutered so he won't get your little one pregnant. Also...is there a way to keep him indoors only so he doesn't get beat up? My concern would be that he would contract FIV or FELV from another cat.

Milo is not nuetered nor has he been to a vet to get any of his shots. I wouldn't be suprised if he has FIV or FELV. I don't know why my sister is ignoring his health (he's wounded, has fleas and god knows what else.) I feel soo bad for him. We put him outside because he was getting difficult to handle and he's been outside since. Everytime she tries to put him indoors, he sprays and she finds that discusting so she kicks him out.

Spraying is a direct result of not being neutered...neutering helps in so many ways:
