Rufus Came For Dinner and STAYED


A small little kitten was dumped at the beach...Vet said he was about 7 weeks old...he was covered in fleas and was hanging around a vacant house hunting for food....he wouldn't let me get near him but did eat the food that I left. One of the local Cat agencies loaned me a trap and I was able to capture him and take him to the vet....since he was so young he couldn't be fixed...and he needed a week's worth of medicine to correct some intestinal problems....he has now been with us three weeks...we couldn't get anyone to adopt him....so he decided to adopt us....he is a mess...he can get into everything and runs at a gallop...it is like having a young child in the house...I find myself saying No a lot.... I don't believe in removing claws...but this guy is really attacking the furniture and ignoring the scratching post....am hoping this will improve over time because I can't let him destroy my furniture no matter how cute he is.

Congrats on the new baby in the family.

With a face like that, he can't be that bad (or atleast that is what people say about my 2 year old that is the most destructive force in the world).

Good luck with him!

Ann,
Put some water into a spray bottle and whenever he starts scratching something he shouldn't be - SPRAY HIM!!!
They learn fast as they don't like getting wet.
Worked on our two cats who have since cross over the Rainbow Bridge!
