Hi Everyone from Lusa and me :)

post #1 of 9
Thread Starter 
Hi all

My name is Susan and I live outside of Pittsburgh, PA. On Wednesday, I saw a tiny black shape moving on the side of my busy road just yards from my house. I found the most adorable stray kitten who I've named Lusa (the Choctaw word for "black.")

The vet said that Lusa is between 4 - 6 weeks old. She's suffering from URI, fleas, and ear mites. She is FIV and leukemia negative She's living in my bathroom currently because I have a dog (rescued) who was not socialized with cats.

I was/am completely unprepared to have a baby cat. My husband and I are thinking about doing a 2 week foster trial with her to see if my husband's allergies can handle having her in the house. If we can keep her, she'll have the upstairs bedroom all to herself.

I hope you experienced cat people can advise me about the best care and home set-up for her.

Welcome to TSC! I'm glad you found your way here. You might get more advice that want you want Lusa is adorable and she was very lucky to have you watching out at the street that day. You might want to post in SOS rescue or Health section to get some advice from others, I hope that everything works out with your husband so you can keep her

Let me know if you need any help finding your way around the forums or have any other "site" questions

Thank you for the warm welcome! I've never been around a kitty this young, and haven't had a cat in about 15, so I have a lot of questions

Lusa is a wonderful little girl and is so affectionate. When she looks up at me with her green eyes and purrs, I just melt!

I hope to get some pics of her playing.

Hi Susan just i quick hint about being allergic to cats is that its the saliva that most people react to not the fur , just use a damp hand towl to rub the fur with every time hubby is about and it may help ,not saying it will it may.
