How to Litter Train Your Kitten

Today we have a guest post from Annie Anderson, founder of MeowKai.

Compared to dogs, cats are relatively easy to litter train. In fact, the mother initiates the process of litter training once the kitten has been weaned. When you bring your kitten home, he should already be used to using the litter box, so your job of litter training is made even easier! However, if the kitten is a stray and hasn’t had his mother to teach him, you can take over the litter training process.

A Tale of Two Kitties

For the next installment in the Adoption Tails series, we have a special guest post written by Jacques Bouchard, who grew up with many cats throughout his life and is a self-proclaimed lifelong cat lover. Recently, one of his four cats passed away from cancer.

Jacques has written about his time with Mr. Monahan, the role that the special cat played in his family, and how he and his wife have worked to honor Monahan’s unique personality and special character, while remembering that many other cats are still in need of a forever home. And that adopting a new kitten (Ollie) can also be an acceptable part of the healing process, for both humans and fellow felines.

The One That Got Away

Last month I did a profile on foster parent and fellow blogger Heather Davies. I asked her at the time if she had a favorite foster story to share. While she said she had a couple, her nearest foster fail was a kitten named Hamish. So today, Heather is doing a guest post to share Hamish’s story with us. The quoted text in the story contains passages from original posts from Heather’s blog.
