Austin update

We took Austin to the vet about a month ago & he's definitely a stray. He wasn't even neutered yet. We got him a vaccination and he had ear mites so we got him some treatment for that. We're going to get him neutered, but I think I should call the SPCA first to see how much they charge. We really want to get him de-clawed, but it's $350!


He's such a mama's boy :)

The only problem is that I think he gets lonely as a single kitten. I've always been told that when you adopt kittens, it's suggested that you adopt 2 at a time unless you have other cats cuz they need playmates. Austin's been acting a little naughty lately, but I think it's because of sheer boredom. We do play with him a lot, but he can go on for hours and hours and we're constantly buying him new toys because he breaks all the ones he has! haha. He also really likes playing with grapes. I don't know why.... Ha!

Good to hear that Austin's doing well! He looks happy. Anyway, declawing is highly unnecessary. Furthermore, it's gonna hurt the kitty a lot and he'd be in total disability since he can't scratch his sand potty and balance properly. just get him a scratch pad will do. Neutering will already play a big part in mellowing cats so they're less likely to scratch on furniture. As for a playmate, cats grow up to be solitary creatures. they enjoy human company but not so much company of other critters. It's no biggie. Cats get bored of toys easily so I'd suggest that you save on toys. My sis makes newspaper pom poms to tease my cat with and sometimes she plays with aluminum foil ball. Get some catnip though. get them high ;)

good luck!

At first I thought you went to Austin, Texas but you were talking about your kitty cat... hehe~ He is a cutie pie for sure! :)

By the way, the lipgloss is suppose to look like a test tubes... hehe~ It's suppose to be formula as in chemistry.

what a cutie pie! I had a cat who liked to play with my hair at night when I was sleeping. He was never neutered so he was very rambunctious!

awww, please don't declaw that little sweetie. Do some searches on it and see what it entails - it's not very fun for the kitty. if you have problems with him clawing things - you can try "softpaws" they are pretty little colored caps that go on their nails. :)
