    We had my Mom's cat put to sleep yesterday. She had pretty advanced cancer and stopped eating. My dad is thinking about getting a couple of kittens from the Humane Society. Is there anything special with regards to getting two kittens? Should they be from the same litter? Both male? Both female? One of each?
    We also want to get them accustomed to driving 100 miles every few weeks. Any strategies there? Thank you for the help.

    Young kittens adapt well to each other, so they don't need to be from the same litter.....

    I prefer male cats as I have read they are more affectionate......and that is all I have owned in the 4 I have had.......

    all kittens that leave the shelter will more than likely be neutered so this is a GOOD thing.......

    Just observe the kittens when you go see them at the shelter and pick the ones you like that play well, and seem healthy........

    I know at a couple places here in town (no kill shelters) they have "no cages" and the kittens are all in one room, so it makes it nice, you can go in and interact with the kittens......

    excellent pic of those 2 babies!!!!!!!

    Look into getting some soft claws on those 2 rascals now, while they are young........

    Start with Kitten size, then go to small, then medium......most cats stay on medium, but my Max takes large.........

    Max has all blue claws to go with his blue collar, and then Milo is red claws to go with his red collar........

    Yes, we are color coded in this house I tell ya.......

    You guys will love those kittens!!!!!!! ;c
