    I broke down and did it.

    After reading all the help a kitty cat can be, I was given one yesterday. I would post a picture but my computer is so old it is next to impossable to do so. He is yellow and white, his back, head and half his tail are yellow and the rest is white. The person who gave him to me says he is 3 months old, tall and slinder, and she had to give him away because he was terrorizing her 2 yr old son. I do not have a name for him yet. The other people were calling him Harry Potter but that is not my thing. He is tryig to help me type so better close.

    Congratulations on the new addition to your household. He will bring you lots of joy and laughter I'm sure. I agree with you, he needs a name he can be proud of!

    Congratulations! Just be gentle with him and he'll be a gentle cat. I'm sure his personality will inspire you to choose the perfect name for him.

    Welcome to the world of Furbabies. You will be surprised why you waited so long. He will give you an idea for his name. My old man, 14yo, was originally named Boomer after a team mascot but over the years it has morphed into Booger. You can probably guess why.

    Aw, my friend in England just emailed me that they got a black kitten today. They live in a cottage and kitty should find a good home there. My three give me many laughs every day!

    Many years ago our youngest Daughter around 2 YO would aggravate our then cat while he slept. In turn he would hide in doorways and jump out and scare the bejeebers out of her. After I caught on to what was going on I told her if she left him alone he wouldn't bother her. Finally she did and he stopped scaring her.

    Like nativetexan said "Tab" like one of the keys on your keyboard. Tab Hunter is still cute though. Like he's helping you try to "Hunt" for the right "tab" key to press!

    Congrats on the new kitty!!

    I am fostering 4 beautiful kittens for my local humane society and cannot find a single person who wants to adopt even one of them. I am so happy you and your kitty found each other though! Nothing like a kitten to keep you smiling all day long!

    I had one black cat given to me at Halloween. Do Not, repeat, Do Not accept a black cat at Halloween. Her name was DC, and I bet I don't even need to tell you what that stood for. Oh, the things that furbaby got into. Unfortunately allergies got worse and worse until DC had to go to a new home. Kids are grown, cat allergies not a problem, but we got a dog, which I am allergic to!!! Which means that my husband has to clean up after her. Isn't that a shame !!!!
    (DC = D**n Cat, and it wasn't always darn. )

    Autumn would be a cute name since you got him in the fall season. Have fun!

    one thing about Halloween, keep your black kitty inside before, during and after. Kids can be mean.

    Sounds to me that he is already settling in to his new home. So happy for you and enjoy...Cats have their own personality and I'm sure a name will come up for him. LOL

    Congratulations. My best kittys were neutered males. They stayed kittenlike and didn't "mark" 'cause I had them neutered young. The "boys" were such good company.

    Well it sounds like your new little boy is comfortable with his new home. Congratulations, give him lots of love and he will repay you two fold. The right name will come to you once you get to know him.

    Enjoy that furbaby. We miss our two blackies. Good luck with the name. It took us two years to settle on a name for one of our babies!

    Kittens are so much fun. They can be just crazy, but they will settle down. Just remember it will take a little while. Here are a couple of tips from a seasoned cat owner and cat foster mom -

    1. Get one of those cardboard scratching pad things. They aren't too expensive and it will save your furniture. Remember, declawing is inhumane. Many cats with behavior issues are declawed.

    2. Feed him a good quality food. Your local pet food store can help with this. Male cats can get the crystals in their bladder from the cheap cat food. It's very painful and costly. They also poop less with the high quality food - there isn't as much grain in it.

    3. Give him a tiny bit of canned food every day. It's good for their kidneys. I have been told to even put a little water on it so they get even more liquids. The shelter I foster for says that cats don't get near enough liquids.

    Good luck - post pictures!!!

    We adopted a black barn cat who's mother died--he was so small he would fit in my hand---now he is 9 years old and 18 pounds---I held him and rubbed his belly so he would like that and now you cannot touch his belly---he gives us lots of joy and laughter and he decides where and when he will be petted and when he will sit on your lap and demand to be scratched---cannot imagine not having him around---loves to chew on plastic--doesn't bite any off ---just punches holes in it---the plastic he is laying on in avitar is his favortie kind
