    Ok so I had a job the other day for a new system install and this lady had a few kittens and a few dogs. She said she was trying to find a home for the two brother kittens at 4 months old. I said I'd take them, and then she called me back and said try them out for the weekend, so I went back and picked them up.

    Now I have a dilemma, I can't figure out the second ones name, I'm kind of leaning towards Bogey, or Bugs. Its kinda contradictory because he seems to be the most contented one.

    Ok so here's where I need your help. The one chillen' out on the top of the cage (white nose) I had already named Sammy. It was the first name that popped into my head on the way out to get them.

    The one still in the cage with the orange nose I'm leaning toward Bogey or Bugs, but I'm gonna ask you guys for your help in thinking of some decent, not-too-off-the-wall names.

    Gimme your suggestions or if you think Bogey or Bugs is good.


    Here's a picture of my cousins dog harassing them, she's some what territorial but she had been around cats before. Sammy has already batted her in the nose. lol

    make them battle to the death for the name Sammy. With lasers! Problem solved. Now you just gotta figure out how to explain the mess to your insurance company.

    If they haven't been neutered, do it now. Do it yesterday, before they decide to have a battle over which of them controls what section of the house..

    Just give them back! Then you don't have to worry about a name or neutering them or shredding your furniture. Just my $0.02

    You can't neuter cats/dogs until they're between 6-8 months old, so nah.

    depends on who you ask, coworker got a kitten from SPCA 3 months old with no nuts.

    but yeah, the normal rule of thumb is 6 months

    Normally for any cat at all it should be 6-8 months old, too early and their personality changes, too late and they'll continue peeing on everything.
