My new Furbaby....

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey all,

It's been a while since I've managed to be online long enough to actually post and catch up in here. I thought I'd share the story and a couple of pics of the newest member of my Furfamily. As some will know, I have Corty and Rascal......they're in my siggy. Well, Corty isn't really the playing with other cats type of cat, and Rascal is. We were living at my parents place for a while, where Rascal took a real shining to my mum's cat (9 year old DSH, Sooty). We moved out again about a month ago, and Rascal has been pacing around looking and calling out for his mate.

I got some advice from vets/a friend who breeds/and pretty much anyone else who would listen LOL. They all suggested getting him a playmate.

So a friend of mine took me today to a cat shelter, "Just to have a look". I so wanted to bring them all home, so many sad faces, and I am convinced they know what it means when someone walks through the cages..... There was one little girl though, who just stole my heart and I had to bring her home. She is a 2 year old (didn't want a kitten since Rascal is 5 and Corty 6) Ginger and white DSH, who had been dropped off at the shelter about a month ago "Because her owners changed their minds about owning a cat" (Geez that makes me mad)....

Her name was Mustard apparently, which I really don't any suggestions on a new name for her would be welcomed. And she is such a smoochy cat. She hasn't met Corty and Rascal yet, I have set her up a room for herself for a little while, she has all the comforts she may need, her own litter tray, food, water, a basket, scratching pole and some new toys of her own.

I thought I would let her settle in to her new home, get used to me, get over the trauma of moving (again) and that kind of thing before I tried any introductions. Am I doing the right thing with that idea?

Well, any ideas/suggestions etc in relation to how to introduce, if I am doing the right thing keeping her locked away, a name or anything would be welcomed.

Thanks for reading, and here are her pics!

Hey Emma!, your new kitty is adorable....sounds like you are on the right track with helping her get used to her new home. As far as names...she looks like a Pumpkin or Marmalade to me!!

Aww, what a great story, and such a pretty girl! (I'm partial to orange kitties!) You're definately doing the right thing keeping her seperated from them for now. This way she'll have a "safe room" if she gets upset or freaked out. I wish you the best of luck and I hope Rascal likes his new friend. As for a name, I'd suggest "Sassy"...she just has that look to her, lol! =D

Glad you found that beautiful kitty and saved her from the shelter. She is so cute she favors my Tavia. And I love her name. Hope her and Rascal hit it off.

Unfortunately I don't know how they'll get along, the intro process has been put back a bit by her being sick and ending up in the hospital.....
