    So i think i have to get these...

    My friend is allergic to cats and i was looking forward to him and some other friends coming over to my pad to watch football on my HDTV (splurge much?) this year...but this may prevent that, but they are so cute and i'm living by myself, i need company

    One of these would be more fun. You wouldn't have to feed it or clean a litter box, and your buddy probably isn't alergic.

    Lots of people have latex allergies Stacy. Think of trying to explain the allergic reaction to your doc!

    Hello! They're vinyl, not latex

    Not that I have any direct experience mind you.

    Smart move to adopt TWO kittens! One gets bored by itself, two keep each other amused and less destructive. Besides, two cats are four times as much fun to watch as one cat.

    Litter box training a cat is dead-easy! Have the litter box ready and full of litter before you bring the cat home. When you carry the cat into the house for the first time, sit him/her down in the litter box. That's it! Litter box training is done!

    The litter box must be kept clean, however. Scooping it once per day, or more often if your nose indicates it's necessary, and changing it entirely at least weekly.

    You also need to get a scratching post of some sort. Cheapest thing is to go to Home Depot or Lowes and buy some Sisal rope - the really nasty-feeling scratchy stuff - in about 1/2" or 3/8" diameter. Wind it tightly around a piece of wood - I used a scrap of 1 x 6 that was left over from another project. The cats would rather scratch on that then on anything else (especially your furniture).

    DO NOT get them declawed! That is a barbaric practice banned in most of the civilized world (except for the U.S. Declawing is not just trimming their toenails. It's surgically removing the last joint of thier toes at the knuckle! Very painful, and just causes the cat to develop other bad habits, such as biting.

    Awwwwwwww, they're purdy!

    But realize, when you get an animal - you get the animal's lifetime - so you're looking at a potential of 10 years plus. Nice that you adopt them, just think of their whole lives - I see too many people get animals (like my ex-#$%@#$-Brother in law - who thought it was good for his daughter to be raised around animals - so he proceeded to get a gunea pig (it went away), a kitten (semi-adult cat was dropped off at a CVS store), dog 1 (didn't like so it was dropped off somewhere), etc.

    Don't like that at all.

    If you do it, they're your babies. And they're freaking cute too!
