Persia

It is official

After saying goodbye to Jasmine, I know that I will need a new little girl in my life. I have been in contact with a siberian breeder and will have this little angel introduced into my life in a little more than a month:



I am so excited!
She will be just as spoiled as Jasmine was (If not more!)

Awe Cerena she is a doll! Love the look on her face! I am so happy you decided to allow yourself to love another! I am 100% sure that your sweet Jasmine is watching over you and mighty glad you decided to give your love to another kitty!

Jasmine is your guradian kitty angel now!

I am so glad we get to share in your new little one too!

We must have pictures at every stage of growth you know!!

Most definitely, hazel!
As we speak, I am looking at cat trees and ordering a kitten tag (I am doing it through Purina - they are giving a free kitten kitten kit for those who register)

The tag is cute! We registered a long time ago for a puppy kit...I think it was for Gauge, our first setter. Got a cute tag and a little puppy book and log--I even used the log. Tossed the chow, though.

How big a cat tree will you get? She's such a lucky little kitten!!!

Awesome to hear, hazel!
It will be a sisal rope tree. Probably about 4 to 5 feet tall?

Haha I have no kitten experience, either!
Are you suggesting that a smaller tree is safer? Because, if so, I would definitely agree with you.

You can lay the regular one on it's side (lengthwise on the floor) until she's big enough to start climbing higher than it is wide

and if she starts climbing the curtains you'll know it's time to put the cat tree upright

Do you have a calendar marking down the days, Cerena?

That's a good idea about laying the cat tree on its side, growler. See? It takes a cat person. Around here, something like that lying on its side would likely get peed on by a dog!

Hahahaha hazel, you make a good point

Growler, thanks for the suggestion! I haven't seen any great cat trees that I am willing to buy here. I have some climbing toys and things from Jasmine. And I'll try that out with Persia first and see what her personality is like. (e.g. If she likes tunnels, I'll get a tree with some hiding spots.)

Persia will be here sometime early to mid August...
Every day gets me closer to seeing her! I can't wait
