soon2behb :  Awesome news on her being female.  With males, depending on when they’re neutered, there is a risk of stinky urine.  Now, it’s just a matter of the spay.

After she’s spayed, try a small tube sock with the toes cut out and four small slits to protect her incision.  I learned that trick from my mentor and it works wonders to keep her from chewing on the site.

Salem sounds like a good name =)

soon2behb :  Curti?  Though it sounds a little like curtains to me.

I do understand.  I got my cockatiel in 1991, yes he is an OLD, OLD, ‘tiel.  When I got him, I was assured that he’d been tested as female so I named him Jessica.  When he finally got his colors, and looked like he’d been dipped in yelloe paint, he would only respond to Jessica, not Jess, not Jesse, just Jessica.  And, he thinks the cats are HIS, and it’s vice versa.  They set up a protecitve boundary when strangers come over and he talks to the cats non stop.

soon2behb :  I had a cat growing up that was a kitten at the same time my parents got a puppy.  The two of them loved one another!  The dog would carry the cat around by the scruff of its neck like a puppy.  (The neighbors thought he was trying to eat it which was kind of funny.)  Poor cat got all drooly, but never seemed to mind.  

The cat would follow the dog on all of his walks.  The dog was this giant chow-german shepard mix called Moose, and there was always a tiny grey and white cat trailing him on his walks.  They would cuddle.  It really was the cutest thing.  Getting a young dog while you have a young cat might work out very well.  

At minimum, your new cat will likely help you with your mouse problem.  Just prepare yourself for some “presents.”
