I have an aunt named Virginia, and we call her Ginger. That kind of fits your baby, with her orange and gray. Or she looks a lot like my dd's best friend's kitty named Pastel. Again, with the color theme, but a little more original than Callie the Calico! And Pastel sounds cute with Polly, and will save you from telling the story of being in jail when you explain her name.

I can just see, in a few years, you will have kids, and their friends will be telling their parents about the kitty named Ginny, because you were in jail! Then again, that could be funny!

How horrible to be in jail THREE DAYS! Glad you got sprung!

Casey comes to mind or Kessie

Ooh I like Akila, or Mikayla (you could call her Kayla for short). I do like Casey, but you'd have to spell it C-A-S-E-Y cause I've got a little pooper named K-C.

Welcome! When I first read your post I was like "oh my gosh. . ." because I just got a new polydactyl kitten named Polly ( 2 weeks ago) !! I think that's so cool because I've never heard of another one.

And that's my name! lol!!

I just read Molly's catster page and found out that your mother is allergic to kitties.

I am too, preatty severly. I had a really hard time adjusting to Polly when we first got her, but I got on good allergy meds for a few weeks and haven't needed them since.

I bathed Polly once a week, from when she was a tiny kitten. It is a blue shampoo from petsmart, and it smells like babypowder. Until we got the new kitten, I had hardly ANY allergic reaction to Polly as of late. I would bathe her MAYBE once a month as she got older and my allergies subsided.

The new kitten and Polly are going to go back on a bi-weekly bath schedual again, as I became slightly allergic when the new kitten was brought in the house. I am confident that this allergic reaction will subside just like it did with Polly.

My suggestion for you, is to get these kitties used to baths as they are young. It's tough, and you might want to wear gloves, or at least trim their nails before. But the more baths they get, the more they get used to it. Polly just sits in the sink now and lets me use the sprayer on her. She is a champ!

If your mom starts having really bad reactions, suggest that she go see her doctor and get on something perscription. Or even something Over the Counter and non-drowsy.



I hope this helps and you guys don't have any problems!!! Cats are WONDERFUL!

Thanks for the tips. We're definitely looking in to some good prescription allergy meds. Good luck with your kitties!

No problem! It's the baths that helped me though. The most! Whenever I feel I am getting a bit reactive, I give polly a bath and POOF! No problems!

My cats hate baths so I use those allergy wipes. They seem to help a little bit. Have you tried them, Yarra? Do you find them as or less effective than the baths?

I have tried them. And yes, I have found a good ole' soak in the tub to me much more effective! lol It pulls away the dander that builds up at the root of the hair.

She gets a nice, Scratch and pull when I give her her bath. lol. I scratch with the pads of my fingers to loosen everything up, and pull lightly to get out any loose hair.

Make sure you are using a soap intended for cats though, and that it contains moisturizers. One day Jordan used my Dove Body Wash on her, as he thought it would be good for her skin. lol Talk about a greese ball! Poor girl.

What helps me is that Molly and Polly are both Siamese, which are hypoallergenic.

No quite right I'm afraid.

I had a siamese cat, purebred from show line, and all of the people who were allergic to cats were still allergic to him.

BTW, that kitten is such a cutie

And I love the name Virginia (Ginny), I have such fond memories of the vacations that I spent there

Also her coloring is called a Torbie and white (because of the tabby patern in her grey), not Calico.

Okay, and you do this once a month of once a week? Also, what's the name of the shampoo? And did you get a special nozzle (sp?) for your bathtub tap to wash her?

Thanks so much. I'm hoping this will help my allergies. They've been really bad, lately.

I used to wash her in the bathtub. Fill it to a little past her tummy. She seemed more secure with the whole thing that way.

Once we moved to the new apartment, they had a deeper kitchen sink and a spray nozzel. That seems to work just fine. I still fill the sink to her belly though.

I would start with the bathtub and some thick gloves and bath once a week until the kitties get used to it!

Any shampoo would be good. You just want to get the dander off. That is what we are allergic to.

I use the kind in the squeeze tube. It's blue and is baby powder scented. You can get it at Pet'smart.

Have her evaluated by a vet dear. It is very common for kittens to have seizures when they are young (it goes away, and is normally not a big deal) but she does need to be evaluated for neurological issues...The vet will observe the way she walks, how she holds her head, and if she tilts or leans when walking. It shouldn't be too expensive . She is a gorgeous diluted calico. I'm glad little roxy found a good home with you.
