    I wanted to say thanks to everyone who replied to my thread yesterday I was so sad and you all helped me. And i wanted to show you my kitten.

    He has had 3 names so far and we are not sure which is the final name, my 5 year old daughter chose them all! Manny (after Handy Manny, a kids show), Mario (after super mario) and Max after my mums cat that died, she said she'd always remember him if we named him Max. I think thats the sweetest thing. I like all the names.

    Here he is, he was about 8 weeks old in this photo :)

    Aww, he is such a sweetie and it's lovely that your daughter chose such sweet names. Personally I like Mario but I think she might go for Max if it's after your mums cat.

    Awww!! He is just adorable :001_wub:

    I like Mario too, but i think Max is a lovely gesture. Both would suit him!

    I know it is hard decided on whether to let him out or not. If you decide to let him have access to the outside, maybe train him to a sound? For instance: Put some biscuits in a jar/tin give him a treat from the jar/tin on random occasions. Then start shaking it and everytime he comes he gets a treat and a fuss over/game. Once he has started coming each time then let him out before his first meal..shake it, and when he comes in he gets ''rewarded'' with his meal. And do it again before his evening meal............and so on!

    Before long he can be out anytime but once he hears the noise he will come. This has worked for mine even though they are now 'free fed' they still come in!!

    I like Mario best i think! I am going to keep him indoors for now and maybe in the future we will see how it goes. He is still little anyway, but i just want him safe and the only way for him to be safe is to keep him as an indoor cat xx
