Tips for Choosing a Cat or Kitten 
Young kittens should not be adopted as "only pets." These babies need the play skills, comfort, and social skillbuilding that can only come from living with another cat or kitten. We work with adopters to educate them in this regard and do not place one small kitten alone in a home. An existing family cat serves the need, though people often return for a second youngster after discovering the the little one is driving a more sedate, older cat nuts. Babies need much more playtime for good health than the average person understands and suffer from the lack therof when adopted alone. People are not equipped to supply the many hours of rough and tumble exercise that a second kitten can, nor should they assume that role. Exercise aside, the comfort of another animal to a kitten just removed from its littermates is simply humane. ~Cat Fancy June or July 2009.

Gently press the cat's toe pads to reveal sharp claws in need of a trim. Notice the pink tissue (the quick) on the inside of the claw. Avoid the quick when you trim the claw; cutting into it will cause pain and bleeding Remove the sharp tip below the quick (away from the toe), clipping about halfway between the end of the quick and the tip of claw.
