I need one too

Any info on how to get one?

I don't know why people think getting a foreign cat is better than a Nigerian cat. All my cats are all local Nigerian cats but they are all well taken care of and look good. To me cats are the easiest animals to have because they only need feeding and that's it. They take care of other things. I have cat litter that I put in certain places around the house so they can do their business and change it weekly.

Yes I am. Unfortunately I don't really know how you can get a cat as all my cats are strays that I took in. They have all been spayed and neutered so no kittens

Yes I get my cat litter from shoprite. It's about 900 naira and since you have only one kitten it could probably last you a month. What you need to do is get some sand in a bowl that's not so deep. Put the kitten on the litter bowl and he will automatically know what to do. If he doesn't take one of his front paws and mimic the scratch like he's burying it and he will know. Once you do it once that's it. He will know to use the litter all the time

What you are describing is called kneading. They do this especially when they are been cuddled and they also start purring. Even my oldest cat who is almost 8 years old still does this. You can either try to trim the nails which can be a bit tricky. Or you'll just have to wait till he gets older. The older the cat gets the less he does it and he learns not to use his nails to dig so deep. Aside from that there's really nothing you can do because it's a natural instinct

Yeah it's ok to give him anything he wants as long as he's fine eating it. But just be careful that he doesn't become an irritating beggar. You need to teach him from now to sit quietly or from a distance while you are eating because as he grows older he will start to demand for food while you are eating and even jump on the table to get food from your plate. If it's ok with you then it's fine but if you have guests around that can be very annoying.

and yes,after my male cat ran away, i did some research as to find out why and the research came forth by saying cats are ALWAYS looking for something better, just in case,,lol...its sad but true,,,a number of male cats run away, especially when they have access to outdoor spaces.

Hmm...wow...sorry about that dear...I hope you checked really well,cause cats are very good at hiding ,especially in new environments..check every nook and cranny of your house...under the bed,behind the freezer...small spaces sha....and if you are sure she is missing then,that's another ball game...cats seldom answer to names...buh I really doubt she would go back home...especially if she is just leaving her house for the first time...tell your friend not to be angry...

Glad you found the cat. Cats are very territorial animals and when they are taken out of their territory they get very scared and often hide somewhere until they feel a bit more comfortable. Since she's still new to the environment I would suggest you keep her indoors until she familiarises herself with your house. As for what you said earlier about male cats running away, it's true to am extent. Most male cats start looking for a mate when they are about 6/7 months. If they find one around then they won't leave but if there isn't any female around they might go out looking for one and probably get lost. I have 2 male cats and 4 female cats. They have all been spayed and neutered (except one)so they don't feel the need to go out looking for a mate.

I hate cats. Sorry if I sound cruel but the fact is I hate them. Well, a cat was always jumping into our compound and. I have been finding how to stop it without hurting it. Sad thing is that it gave birth in our compound and the babies can hide more than Osama.
One morning I perceived a foul smell and lo and behold there at a corner the mother was dead. We don't know the cause of it's death.

1. Should I sell off the babies
2. Or kill them

Here are some pics.

Please don't kill those kittens. Do you stay in lagos? I will gladly take them if you do. The mother must have eaten something poisonous.

Yes he won't. Since there is a female cat around now. He would probably want to mate around 6 months or so.
