Let me start by introducing myself. My name is Elizabeth. My husband and I currently live in Fall River but we plan on one day moving to GA. Anyways back to the reason i joined this site :) . We will be adopting an all black kitten around April 21st (Easter). Right now he is only 4 weeks so when he is ready to leave his mother, we will be picking him up!. I am super excited as it has been about 18 years since i had a kitten. I recently lost my beloved Siamese named Simon Leo, he was 18 (I had him since I was 6). I take great care of my pets that I have had over the years. I only feed my pets 5 star rated food and I research all the different brands til I find one that I feel great about feeding.

Hello and welcome to TCS. :wave2:
Congrats on the pending adoption of that precious black kitten. :bouquet:

Since it's been a long time since you've had a kitten, you may not be aware that the recommendation now is to keep kittens with their mom and siblings till at least 12 weeks of age, so that they have plenty of time to learn cat etiquette. Of course, that isn't always possible, but if your kitten's current family can keep him a few weeks longer, it might be something to consider.
How Old Do Kittens Have To Be To Leave Their Mother? | TheCatSite

If you do adopt him younger, be prepared to teach him "manners" such as gentle playing, no biting, etc. Here's an article from the Humane Society with more info: Teach your kitten how to play nice

Also a couple TCS articles:
9 Tips That Will Help Your Kitten Adapt To A New Apartment | TheCatSite
Kitten Proofing Your Home: 13 Practical Tips | TheCatSite

Condolences, also, on the loss of Simon Leo. :alright: Eighteen years is a long time, but that doesn't make it any easier to lose them. RIP dear boy. :angel3: BTW, TCS has a Crossing the Bridge forum if you feel you'd like to post a memorial tribute to Simon Leo.

Hi Elizabeth and Binx :wave3:. l'm a newbie here too, there is so much information on this site!
Are you sure Binx is a male? lt may be the colouring of the camera but it looks like there's a little Torbie going on.

Thanks everyone!. I do not think they can keep him much longer than April 21st because they have 4 other kittens & I think he is a boy but of course i am just going with what i was told! lol

A very warm welcome to TCS! :welcomesign: I'm glad you joined the site and Binx will soon be joining your husband and you in your home. :blackcat2:

Also I forget to say his full name is Thackery Binx (Just like the immortal cat from hocus pocus).
I watched that movie so many times with my children. They adored Binx and I thoroughly enjoyed the movie. Good choice of name! :thumbsup:
