Hi, I've been reading your site for quite a while, but just joined yesterday--(read about a kitten with an eye infection and had a similar experience).
Right now I don't have any cats of my own. My two old kitties--Suzy-19 years old and Snuggles--17 years old--passed away this summer. I do fostering for the MSPCA so I am not without purrfect friends though. It has been a hard season though. After my cats were gone, my first pregnant foster had a still born and one live tiny baby who died a day later. The mom had a terrible uri. I kept her til she was better and she was adopted within 4 days from the shelter! Then my next pregnant mom had 4 dead babies a week after I got her. A week later when I brought her back to get her checked at the shelter, they had 5 adorable tabbie kittens who needed fostering and my mom cat loved them. She's been great with them since!
They love her too. They nurse from her, but could she really be producing milk a week after her kittens died?

I also have an adorable terrier mix I got from the shelter shortly after I started volunteering there. I've had several mother cats who have been comfortable with him and he's great with them and the kittens. I have some cute photos of kittens curled up with him, and if I ever figure out how to send them, I will.

and welcome from my 3 kitties.

You have certainly had a tough time, but it sounds like cats are a big part of your life and maybe one of your tabby fosters will become part of your fur-family

Well enjoy the site, theres lots to read and see here.

Maybe when you get settled in you can post us some photos of your dog with his furbabies

We love photos here

Welcome Snuzy and canine companion!

Glad to have you at TheCatSite and hope you enjoy it as much as we do. Thanks so much for doing such important work fostering cats and kittens! I am so sorry to hear of your losses, but do hope that in the near future you will be adopting cat(s) of your own -- having lived with and loved cats all my life, I just couldn't imagine being happy without cats around! Currently I care for 9 rescued, indoor-only, spayed/neutered furballs here and have 12 in sanctuary due to impending divorce/forced relocation from acreage to an urban location with stupid quotas...I miss my 12 so terribly! The 9 will go with me when I move, of course!
Can't wait to see pix -- instructions are in the Stickies at the beginning of each page. I can't upload, probably due to having a slow dialup connection...

Glad you could make it and hope to hear you have CATS in your family soon!
