Introducing Susie Skittles

We got a kitten in the end. A beautiful black 8 week old with stripes! Her picture is on my profile (she has taken up residence on the book casehmm).

She is so sweet and loving. She just adores DH and they have spent a long time cuddling up to each other. DD2 loves her to bits (she's nearly 4), DD3 who's almost 2 is apprehensive of her but likes to wave at her and is already added 'Susie' and 'cat' to her limited vocab. Only problem is DD1 who is 5.7y and whilst she claims not to be scared of her, she won't really touch Susie and she does get very skittish when Susie is one the move. Hopefully that will change as they get used to each other.

On the slightly funny side Susie will not poo/wee in her litter tray but instead has taken to going behind the futon in the living room on the CURTAINS. I have put the litter tray there now to see if that helps (with the aim of moving the litter tray as she gets used to using it).

She is so gentle and friendly. With in 5 minutes of us getting home and opening the carrier she was exploring the living room whilst we sat and watch. Totally fearless!

Aww - she's lovely!

Our cat came litter trained so I have no suggestions sorry! But maybe you can fold the curtains up out the way until you've solved it?

Thank you - she is asleep on DH's shoulders as we speak.

Apparently the kittens were litter trained but she doesn't seem to like the litter tray/kitty litter.

The curtains are longer than floor length ones so a bit difficult to take up. Luckily they came with the house when we bought it 5 years ago so they aren't my 'best' curtains (why did my mum have 'best' curtains for the front room??) so I'll just bung them in the washing machine and hope for the best.
