  • sorry, crying over something stupid

    I have called every store there is around here and I cannot come up with anything to put the kittens into now. They are out growing their box they have. I can't use wood because they can claw their way out. Can't use fencing because they will get stuck on it. I need something big enough they can play, have their liter box and Patches can get in and out of. ANy ideas? I'm at an end here on ideas.

    I am sorry you can't get anything to put them in, can't you just put them in a room and shut the door? A play pin is a good idea.

        Maybe a baby gate of some sort or playpen?

          A baby play pen is a great idea and you can usually find them in the paper really cheap or at a garage sell...

            I would say maybe a suggest a wires dog crate big enough for a huge dog. like a great dane size. Surely that would confine them. You could put the litter on half in a litter pan and the bedding on the other half for them.

            These kittens are really stressing you out into a major flare....I hope you can figure something out soon for your sake.

              Can't shut them into a room. The room they are in now is like one of those studio rooms. I thought about a play pen but aren't those made out of cloth? Haven't seen one since back in '93 so not sure if they make them differently. I can't find a big crate of any kind. I have them in the top part of a plastic dog house. One I had found that no one wanted and thought that would work good. I had to add on to the top of it so they can't get out. If they were only puppies. I know so much about puppies and nothing about kittens. I never thought about a dog crate. Will see if that would work. For some reason I worry so much over the kittens and I do not understand why. I've taken care of 5 dogs at the same time and 4 were puppies at the same time so what happened?????? I got old.

                Kittens usually require less care than puppies. It's been years since we had kittens and we let the mom cat take care of them --- she kept moving them to strange places, but then she'd show us where they were.

                  I guess I don't have a good picture of why they need to be cooped up in a box or crate or anything. I have four kittens that are eight weeks and they're all over my house. They actually fell quite a ways and are okay and doing fine. They are everywhere, but happy and healthy. Do you have to keep them in something?

                    If you'd like a playpen sort of thing--I bought one that's plastic fence like at ToysRus--it's the same one they sell at Pet's Mart about $30 cheaper. I used it for my puppies. If you get lucky I've seen them at garage sales for about $10. They are 6'L 3w 26"H. I don't know if kitties could climb out or not. My dachshund can't get out he has no legs. Now my rat terrier I could never keep him in even at 8wks. The little #@%& climbed and jumped out. Good luck.

                      Angie, thanks! There is a ToyrUs store here but I haven't been in it since 1993. That sounds like it will work. They can't get their claws into plastic to climb out. Thanks again for letting me know.

                      I don't want them roaming around in the room until they are old enough for it and not get hurt and I know they are liter trained. I worry as if they were babies. I never let my neice walk by herself until she was 1 year old and then I held onto her shirt in the back. Afraid she would fall and hurt herself. Patches feeds them and cleans them but that is about it. She does make them mind at times. Exspecially after I've had them out playing and put them back into their prison. (that's what I call their nursery ) They keep crying wanting out and she'll finally say something to them and they settle down a sleep. Guess I am an over worried grandma. These are my first grandkittens.

                        Before you spend your money on a play pen, you need to think about the fact that a kitty can jump onto a table or a kitchen countertop from standing still by the time they are about three months old.

                            I'm hoping by the time they are 3 months old they will be litered trained. That is my biggest worry. They already out grew the wading pool. I could always cover over the play pen too if need be. By then they won't need the mother anymore.

                            Not even sure again if they will be here. Going through that "they go" again thing. First they say they stay, then they ahve to go, then they stay, then they have to go. This is why I never wanted another pet again and really wish I hadn't taken Patches in. I know it is awful of me to say it but I get too attached to animals and everyone knows that but they don't seem to care.
