Lacey, maybe both Evil SmileLOL. You may be asleep and one of your fingers just happens to creep under the sheets, and kitty will be right there to attack it lol.

Get him aquainted with His carrying bag so it is not hard for you to take him to the vet later on. Watch his diet. Try feeding him good food like WEllness.  

Have fun.....sometimes I regret not getting him another cat to play with b/c he might be lonely but it is too late now.

tiger is adorableeeeeeeeeeeeee

same here. My cats don't like people, so they hide whenever anyone comes by. Most folks have no clue that we have cats. And everybody always raves about how nice our house smells.

When I first got my cats, I was leery of smells too. I used to bury my nose in my cat's fur LOL to try to see if they smelled; but I could never smell anything; like they were odorless.  I'm sensitive to smells and I can't stand to even have garbage in the house more than a day. So I have to keep it smelling good/clean--not perfumey.

eta: now as far as poop smelling, they will put out what they take in LOL. If the poop is smelly, try changing foods.

co sign about getting him used to his carrier. I have several carriers, and we leave 2 of them out all the time for them to use as cat beds/huts. That way they don't fear the 'carrier' because they think of it as a comfy bed.

Give the cat a chance to get used to home
 
show lots of affection.  if you pick up, talk to your cat a lot, give him lots of love...he will give it back 10 fold.
 
buy fragrance free litter and try and stay with one brand.  remember, he may miss the litter box sometimes but don't hit him because he is a "child". 
 
Don't hit your cat, he will become scared of YOU and never forget.
 
Find a petsmart or petco near you, they sell letter in 40 lb boxes.  I buy 1 box and it lasts at a minimum of 1 month.
 
do the litter 2 times a day. I do it first thing when I get up and when I get home from work.  Remember this phrase...
 
His litter box is like your bathroom toilet.  Would you want to use a toilet that was full of waste??
 
Also remember, cats like CLEAN things so, EXPECT and understand that as soon as you do his litter, in 10 minutes he will USE IT AGAIN....so I get my plastic bag, do the litter, then tie up the bag and go on and do something else.    THen say 15 minutes later, he will use the litter again.   SO I do one final litter clean up and take it out in the morning on my way to work.
 
keep your store bags from say safeway, walmart anywhere...because those are the bags I put the litter waste in.
 
Have more than 1 litter box.  my cat has one box that he uses and when I pour out the entire box of litter and throw it away, I need to clean the litter box.  SO I just use the other litter box and fill it with all new litter when I'm cleaning the other box.
 
Also empty the entire litter box at least every 1 1/2 - 2 weeks.
 
THe main tip - feed him dry food.  and the SAME BRAND all the time.  that way you can leave out food and you wont have to rush home to give him a can.  As well as you can go out of town for 2-3 days and if you leave out a lot of food he can make it.

Pay him lots of attention, when you come home pick him up talk to him. hug him. 
if you raise him with no affection he will turn into a stand offish cat.
 
use you tube and their are lots of cat tips.
 
type in hair balls in cats, in you tube so you can know what to expect.
 
start brushing him NOW so he gets used to it, that was a mistake I made.
