What do Kitttens Need?

I am pondering Parker, and what kittens need. I don't EVER remeber being that little,and neither does Mom. So, we are asking, what do I have to have for kittens?

Do kittens teethe? do I need cool teething rings? He should know how to use the box, so no problem there. do they chew on everything? How high do they jump? Can they get through baby gates? do I have to put him in a room with no fabric and cords till he grows a little?

We need kitten help!!!!

Love, Mags and Family

Summer #readpawty

We will not meet in July. Next meeting will be Aug 3. I have 4 books listed here. Read one, some or all of them!

The Persian Pickle Club
by Sandra Dallas. 61% off new at Amazon. Available through libraries.
“Hard times in Depression-era Harveyville, Kansas, are softened by the conviviality of a weekly quilting circle called the Persian Pickle Club. Queenie Bean, the "talkingest" member of the group, narrates the novel with snappy style. Over the course of a year, during which the club experiences more sorrow than sewing, Queenie and her pals depend on one another more than ever.” Has a surprise twist ending. Maggie’s mom likes this book due to strong women.

James Herriot's Cat Stories
by James Herriot
James Herriot's Dog Stories by James Herriot
Lots of copies new, used, and at libraries of these books. There are 2 editions of the dog book, and it doesn’t matter which you get.
If you have never read James Herriot, you are in for a treat. He will make you laugh, cry, and share his love for each of the animals this small town Yorkshire vet treats. MizzBassie and Maggie’s mom highly recommend. Easy reads, perfect for summer.

The Cat, The Quilt and The Corpse: A Cats in Trouble Mystery by Leann Sweeney. Copies available new, used, and maybe in libraries
“Jill's quiet life is shattered when her house is broken into and her Abyssinian, Syrah, goes missing. Jill's convinced her kitty's been catnapped. But when her cat-crime-solving leads her to a murdered body, suddenly all paws are pointing to Jill. Soon, Jill discovers that Syrah isn't the only purebred who's been stolen. Now she has to find these furry felines before they all become the prey of a cold-blooded killer-and she ends up nabbed for a crime...”
Leann is a new writer in the cat mystery genre. Mom lost her book on a trip and had to buy another one; guess that tells you something about the book!
If you have read this book, a second one in the series came out May 4, so try that one!

It is a Parker Pawpawty!

Mom, today is June 10. Parker comes June 19. That is 9 days from now. She got so excited she lost a week on the last post! MOL!, and her math went mad.

@ParkerSKat will make his debut at the Pawpawty June 19-20. I wonder how he will enter a room...

10 days and Counting!

Yes, Parker arrives on June 19th! His very wonderful breeders are coming to St. Louis to visit a friend, so they are bringing him with them. he is 11 weeks now and weighs 3.5 pounds (1600 g) which is bigger than most Maine Coons that age but about right for kits from the sire.

We have to get him kitten food and a kitten dish and new litter and another box. So excited!

anyone have any suggestions of what I need to get a chewing and clawing kitten? We've never had a kitten in this house! MOL! (I was 9 months old when I came.) Leave a comment!
