I didn't get a kitten, but my brother did!

My brother adopted a six month old flame-point ragdoll mix today and he is very cute! Obviously I have attached several pictures below because I know they are always wanted. We have no other animals in the house so I am wondering how long he should be quarantined for? He got outside the room and wondered around alright but seemed a bit skittish so we put him back in the room. He is already six pounds at six months and is a big boy. Does anyone with ragdoll experience have any idea how big we can expect the kitten to get? My brother and his GF named him pancakes incase anyone was wondering. He has an affinity for boxes and the bathtub..like many other kitties :).

I really think the two week quarantine is good- even when you don't have any other kitties (or pets- other pets count too in regard to quarantine). I really think it just establishes from the start- a more secure kitty.

Congrats though- on your... nephew?

Thanks! I agree and it seems after just a few hours he has settled in very very well. As you can see with the last picture he is very friendly already. If I do decide to be a bit more impulsive and get a SV sooner rather than later at least he will have a playmate!

NO IMPULSE buys. Be good! LOL!

He seems to sort of claw at the ground every time he drinks/eats/ smells a bowl that had food at it. He isn't kneading, but more scratching at the ground. Is that normal behavior?

Normal -- he either is caching the food (burying it for later) or he is expressing displeasure for the food or the dish or the location or any number of things that only the cat knows.
