    So cute!  I think getting a kitten from anywhere would be a good idea, just make sure that you spay/neuter it, so you don’t have to worry about giving away more kittens later!

    I say take him this weekend.  I am a true believe that pets choose you.  If it’s meant to be, your kitten will be there.  It really doesn’t matter if it’s Fiance actual birthday.  It’s the gift of love that counts.  Thanks for choosing a rescue.

    I voted box kitten because if homes aren’t found for them, they’ll go to the shelter anyway. Usually kittens at the shelter will find homes – it’s the adults that they have trouble finding homes for (since everyone wants a kitten). So yeah. Box kitten. Mr. MJ and I planned to get a kitten from a shelter, but when my friend found one in her garage we took him instead because it was convenient (and he’d have gone to the shelter anyway!).

    2 box kittens! We got our 2 cats at the same time and they just love eachother, I wouldn’t want either of them to be in a 1 cat household since they are so social! Kudos to you for saving a kittens life!!

    Yay!!

    I think they will bond with each other but will also bond with your dog. What I’ve found with cats is that the older they get the less likely they will be to bond with a new kitten/new animals; kittens are made for bonding!

    What kind of dog do you have?

    It really depends on their personalities.  Go the seperated room acclamation route.  Keep the kittens in a closed off room for a week or two before letting get free roam of your place.  Bring your dog’s toys/bedding in to them so they can get the scent.   Do short supervised visits after a week.  Don’t get discouraged if it takes a while for them to accept each other.  It usually takes a couple of months, at least.  Just keep the “safe” room if they get overwhelmed.

    We have 6 cats and they all get along very well (knock on wood).  We haven’t had any major fights between them, and I attribute that to slowly introducing them when a new cat comes in.

    I vote 2 kitties! Just make sure you have the money for vet bills. 2 cats is no more work than 1 (we have 2 cats and 1 dog fyi)… but it is double the vet bills. spay/neuter x 2, shots x 2, checkups x 2, random illnesses x 2… you get the idea 🙂
