Cats are truly low maintenance, they will train you. Just put out food and a clean litter box and then just be patient. You and your kitty will get to know each other without forcing the issue.

Watch these videos for ideas about what to expect. Start with Cat man do. Its a classic.
Haha, good videos, And thank you for the laugh Alix.
I've never had the TV dinner happen to me but the rest of the videos I have had to me at x-girlfriends house.

About bathing your cat.. after I wrote everything I realized that it was an adult cat. When I got my cats at 4 months, they had flea dirt all over them.. it was pretty bad.. they were too young to clean themselves as well as we wanted them to. Unless the cat is used to being bathed, I wouldn't recommend it :) Sometimes if theres a spot, just take a damp cloth and try and get at it. Other than that.. pushing the cat towards any body of water is a no-no if you want to keep your face! lol

Flea dirt? Do fleas leave dirt or were they dirty and got fleas? We don't have fleas here so I'm interested in learning something new.

It's a polite way to say flea poop. ;)

Flea poop. How can you spot something that tiny?

LOL!!! If you pull back a cat's hair and look at their skin, the flea residue is left clinging to the skin and bottoms of the hairs. It's poop, and dead fleas. Nom Nom Nom! My poor kittens were absolutely covered in fleas when they were picked up off the street by the humane society.

My wife used to enjoy spending hours looking for and popping fleas on our cats.

There is a hold up at my complex, The rules states that the cat MUST be de clawed before I can get him, and hes still being held at the pound. So right now it doesn't look like I will be taking him home, and he even recononizsed me at the pound on the third day we went there.

I'm so peed off at the Land lord right I'm looking for another apartment complex.
