New to the forum and cats...sort of

Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! My name is Amy. I'm married to Matthew, we have a (human) daughter, Hope (20 months) and just brought home 2 long haired brothers whom we named Alex and Marbles. They are 8 weeks old. We bought Marbles Saturday night, but upon coming home and having him one night alone, decided he needed a playmate from his litter. We went Sunday to get Alex. I have never owned cats before (no, wait...I have never had a cat own me...hehe), but we lived with my in-laws for 4 months and they have 3. Marbles is very affectionate and loves to have his belly rubbed--especially by Mommy. Alex won't let anyone come near him yet. He runs even if you are 2-3 feet away from him. We're trying to give him some time as it has only been a few days. When my daughter is awake, they hide behind the couch, but we have put a baby gate up between the kitchen and living room so they can escape her for play, eating, and using the litter box. She is too loud (very excitedly screaming "Kitty!!!") for them and comes at them too quickly in her excitement. Here is a picture of my babies. I hope to learn from you all!

Your new kittens are beautiful and don't worry about being a new mommy, the kittes will train you in no time and it will come natural.

Welcome! Your cats are VERY hansome boys! I love them!

If you would like some low cost clinics so you can get them neutered go to or google search in your area! They can be done at 8 weeks (that is when I do mine) and will start spraying/marking around 4-6 months if not done before then. And thats gross!

Welcome and please ask us any questions you might have on your new babies!

Thought I would add that Alex is warming up to us and is getting "jealous" if Marbles is on Mommy's lap getting lovin's. He even has given us some "sandpaper lovin" (licking our hands)---so it's a definite change from running away if we are 3 feet away from him!!! Yay! We have also figured out Alex is quite the chunk now that he'll let us pick him up. When we pick up Marbles, you can tell he's lean, but Alex has a little belly to him. Hehe.
