    Grooming
    1. Brush him every day.
    2. Buy spray on cat shampoo
    3. If long haired, have the groomer give him a lion cut 2x a year.
    4. Learn to cut his nails property at home.
    5. Brush his teeth every day.

    Feeding
    1. Personal preference, I give wet and dry food.
    2. Clean water 24/7

    Kitty litter.
    1. You must have 2 kitty litter boxes
    2. Clean them everyday.

    Play
    1. Buy him a scratch post
    2. But toys or make your own.
    3. Access to a window so he can see birds/squirrels.

    Health
    1. Establish a vet
    2. Sounds like the $240 covered his basic vaccinations/registration.
    3. Don't let him near your pot or liquor.

    ^ all good points, if I might add:

    -cheesecloth makes a better toothbrush than the rubber things the vets sell
    -if she shits anywhere other than the box, throw another box in that spot
    -it is possible to train them to go in the toilet, see youtube
    -if a lone indoor cat, toys and playing are particularly essential
    -be careful with pills falling on the floor, Tylenol can be fatal for them
    -set up a high perch

    of course the best enrichment would be to periodically let loose some feeder mice in your apt.

    the cat seems to be healthy and totally ok. very touchy feely cat. needs alot of attention. not an aloof cat at all.

    definitely need to get a perch to go by window and some toys.

    All my male cats have been "needy", the female ones have been aloof.
    Go figure. :lol:

    Grow some catnip for her:

    I planted a bed of catnip in my backyard a few years ago and it encourages the strays and ferals to loiter and lounge around, and their presence keeps birds and squirrels away from my tomato plants and raspberry bushes, and the mice out of my rain gutters.

    going to pick up some catnip soon, theres only one herb shop i no of that sells big bags of it for cheap. I sometimes buy it to drink it as a tea.

    might try to bathe her today, see how she reacts to water.

    My old lady thinks cats die if you get them wet. Because if your crazy old polack granny says so, it must be true.

    Me? I'm not the one who thinks water is toxic to felines. Fitz said he was gonna give his kitty a bath, so I decided to share some Polish folk wisdom that the bitch's grandmother treats as gospel.

    Other priceless polack axioms include the fact that putting new shoes on a table is bad luck and buying a fucking $30 potted orchid for your bitch apparently puts some kind of hex on her. I keep trying to explain to my kid why I can't just go buy mommy flowers every time she gets some sand in her pussy.
