Nyello! What I love about the holiday season is everyone's spirit of giving and friendliness. I wish it could last year round :(

And hello again! And my favorite animals are cats and owls (barn owls specifically). :3

Oh my goodness! Have fun with your new kitty!!

I got a kitten back at the beginning of summer, so I'm an expert now. ;0 (haha not really but feel free to take my advice!)

Alright, so...

I'm guessing it's going to be an indoors cat, so definitely get a litter pan. Like a good one, not a cheap one - it'll be worth it. And get clumping litter, as well; it makes life a lot easier. Just keep it clean!! Scoop often. Make sure you get kitten food, not adult cat food, since kittens need a lot more protein and stuff than an adult cat. You'll probably want to slowly ease them into their new environment, especially if you have any other pets or small children. It'll take some getting used to! Just let them take their time and keep them safe and secluded for a little while.
They'll want to chew, claw, and lick stuff, so make sure things like rusty metal and wires and Christmas trees are kept out of the way so they don't ingest anything bad. :3 (or get electrocuted) Learn how to read a cat's body language!! I have no idea if you've had cats in the past, but if you haven't, this is important. Learning to know a cat's emotions/warning signs/whatever will help you understand them a lot better! Pet them and hold them a lot so they get used to you (but don't push it - read their body language to know when they want to get down/get away). As a kitten, they're going to want a play A LOT, but as they get older, they'll calm down (eventually). When kittens are very young, they're going to sleep a ton, but after a few months, they will be sprinting around all the time, so prepare to keep them out of trouble. A scratchy cardboard thing/scratching post or such may help with any clawing!
In order to keep them away from areas you don't want them to be (ex the counter) use a little spray bottle or something maybe? Most cats simply don't like water, so they'll be deterred if you spray them. (Obviously just a little bit, though - a soaked cat won't do anyone any good. :3) Most cats also seem to be afraid of tin foil/metal noises, so perhaps line things with foil if you want them to stay away. Play with your kitten a lot! They'll let you know when they're tired, hungry, whatever.
Establish some semblance of a feeding schedule, keep the food and water in separate rooms probably. A healthy mixture of wet and dry food is probably the best diet. (only occasional treats)
Uh... I'm probably missing so much but like
They're gonna wanna play with everything, go everywhere, and go up on everything. Don't leave important papers lying on the floor because they WILL step on them and dent them. Perhaps tie up your window cords so they don't chew on the ends, keep all ribbon and plastic bags away (they like to chew on these a lot.) Be cautious when opening and closing doors because sometimes they'll stick their paw in the crack between the wall and hinges. Just take some precautions to kitten-proof your house.
Learn how to pick 'em up right so you support their entire body.
Oh and probably don't play with them with your hands! They'll learn it's okay to bite and scratch, and it may not hurt now, but when they're bigger and stronger and have waayyy sharper claws... ow. Always use a toy, or if you're really dedicated to training them, you could try a work glove (so they know it's okay to play with your hand only if you have the glove on). This might not work, though, so probably just avoid hand play.

TL;DR! I'm probably forgetting stuff BUT - Play with them often. Make sure you've got good litter, good pan, good food. Don't let them eat bad stuff. Practice gentle discipline. Learn their body language!! And uh! There you have it! Sorry this is such a mess lol.
Again, good luck with your kitten!! They are definitely a handful, but it's an incredibly rewarding (and cute) experience to own a cat. :3

Just a question - what is a pinglist? I've seen it used multiple times but I have no idea what it is or what they're used for.

Well, do you have any careers in mind, for your next villager? Maybe that'll help!


Probably an Explorer? :3

Any tips on making FC? Animal Husbandry seems like it takes a while to pay off, but it also seems fun, so I don't want to change it... Haha.


Try getting another villager and make them an explorer. Just sell the raw materials and you should make a bit c:


Thank you so much!! I didn't really think of that. :)
