    how to hide my cat from my parents?

    So I picked a free kitten of someone from gumtree, brought it home, gave it a shower, killed some fleas, gave it some ice cream, it doesn't want to play with me, just sleep for majority of the time. My parents will be back in an hour, I don't know what to do with it. THey'll get mad if they found out I have a cat. Should I just keep it in my room until it's old enough to go outside?

    why would they be mad? They should be proud.

    kittens are the most boring pets ever. All they do is sleep... might as well get a cactus. Though, hibernation does make her a lot easier to hide.

    Go to your Dad and whisper: 'Mum didn't want me to tell you this, but she secretly bought a kitten, just pretend you don't know about it." Then go to your Mum and say exactly the same thing about your Dad.

    They are, look at the Chinese bowl in the picture I used to feed it, shit me mama going murder for using her favourite bowl she bought in China on a cat.

    Luckily they still not back yet, I still have time to toilet train it so that it can hide in my room until she's old enough to go outdoor.

    Pretend the cat doesn't exist if your parents' see the cat.
    Try and convince them they are going crazy and seeing things.

    Re: how to hide my cat from my parents?

    My mum got my families cat when my dad was away on a business trip on a whim without telling him. Two weeks later when he got back he was very surprised as to why there was a cat sleeping on his bed.

    Re: how to hide my cat from my parents?

    As for advice- if possible get your neighbours to look after the cat for a week without alerting your parents. The cat will get used to the area and will hopefully not run away. Then release the cat so that it stays in your backyard during the day. If your parents ask say you think its the neighbours cat. Then at night if your bedroom is on the ground floor with a window, train your cat so that it comes to the window every night to be fed, lock your door so your parents dont enter and allow the cat to enter your bedroom for the night. Wake up early and feed your cat so your parents arent woken and hear it, release it out the window and repeat. Also name it after one of your friends so that if your parents randomly hear you calling its name they can assume you are on the phone and not just randomly saying Mr Tibbles or something...

    Oh and during the week your neighbours have the cat make sure you take a photo of them with the cat in case your parents dont believe your claims that it is their cat.

    Re: how to hide my cat from my parents?

    But wouldn't the kitten get attached to my neighbour instead of me? Also, what is the optimal age to turn an indoor cat into an outdoor one?

    They usually roam around the suburb any way and train themselves. They will visit other backyards, decrement in other backyards, destroy plants and be a complete nuisance to your neighbours (as I have recently experienced) if you don't take care of it or you don't train it (ie give it specific places to do its business).

    Re: how to hide my cat from my parents?

    Just leave it and let it roam freely, and if you are infront of ur parents and see the cat say this "Omg, a cute kitty cat surprisingly came into our house. I guess we have to keep it now "

    They also kill other people's pets, as I've recently discovered. :c

    OP, I've nothing against cats and the method that alphabetafeta96 suggested is actually one that someone I know used (successfully). However, do keep in mind that cats, by nature, like to roam around, and by nature, they like to hunt. If you do make it an outdoor cat, please train him/her (to defecate in appropriate locations) and also please put a bell on it's collar or something else to warn pets and wildlife :c.

    Also, if possible, keep them well-fed to reduce any tendencies to hunt b/c of hunger.
    All the best to you and your kitty

    Awwww what a cutie What made you decide to get a kitten if you don't mind me asking? Is it a girl/boy?

    Give it a few months when the kitten turns into a cat and is somewhat trained. Then you can slowly train it to become an outdoor cat. Do you have a backyard shed or basement? If you do, you can probably start there when your parents aren't around. Cats are usually self-sufficient and can learn how to toilet-train themselves but if you're gone for a while and they take a huge dump and stink up the room you really need to get rid of the smell before your parents become suspicious lol.
    You're lucky that your kitten is a quiet one (so far). I personally wouldn't be able to hide the kitten for so long but I hope it works out at the end.

    This is definitely true though they will hunt anyway (even if well-fed) to kill things out of sheer boredom.
