This cat has been hanging around my yard for a few days. I've been feeding it, and today I decided to offically adopt it. I bought food, a litter box, litter, flea meds, and a cat toy. He is inside my house right now, sleeping on the couch. He's really friendly and gets along with everyone, so I think he (she?) is here to stay.
However, I do have a few questions...:))
How do you tell the difference between a girl cat and a boy cat? I want to see if he's spayed/neutered, and I tried to roll her over but she wouldn't let me. She has little nipples, but I know from dog experence that both genders have these. There were no boy parts or anything. How can I tell if she's spayed?
What kind of shots do I need? When should I get them? The local pet store is have a kitty shot and microchip clinc. I was going to get the rabies and the Feline AIDS shot, but is this an OK place to get them?
How do you tell a cat's age? I was just going to ask the vet when I got her shots. My guess is anywhere between 2-14. But if you can tell from the picture that would be helpful.
What breed of cat is she? Is she a mix? I'll try to post more pictures soon.
She doesn't have hair on the back of her ears... Is this normal? Will it grow back, or will it always be like that?
Some one saw her picture and told me she a too skinny. How can you tell when a cat is at a good weight?
Thanks for the help! Any other advice is helpful.
