Slave and Mommy to two sweethearts

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey all! I'm Kathleen, the one over in the corner rocking back and forth while muttering to himself is Joel, and the two nutcases running around like their tails are on fire are Athena and Sarai.

We adopted them last year as a birthday present for me, and they're the (second) greatest decision I ever made. They're littermates, both girls, and even though I've had cats my whole life, these two are something else.

Hmm...lets see. They were rescued from a feral colony at 3 wks old, and I adopted at 8 wks. Athena is a short-haired marmalade with white belly, chin, chest and paws, and Sarai is a medium-haired torbie that is filled with fluff.

No, I really mean it. She's fluff. No cat under there, at least not that I can tell.

Oh, there they go again. Rocket-butts.

Anyway, we all live in a nice little apartment in Manhattan, in a lovely quiet neighborhood with neighbors that need to be taken out for training.

As soon as I can get all my photos uploaded, I'll post some so you can see the monsters. They really are stunningly beautiful cats.

Oh, and I've already posted over in the behaviour forum about Sarai's issues with meowing. So if anyone has ideas (keep in mind this is a NYC apartment), they are much welcomed.

Welcome Athena, Sarai, and Katydid (wonderful name!):

Glad you found us here at TheCatSite and hope your every question and wish are answered here! You write beautifully; I can just see you all! Can't wait to see photos, too. THANK YOU for rescuing and adopting feral kittens. Warms our hearts to hear this! You sound like smart and loving cat caring people -- the best kind!

Sarai will probably calm down with time, and her chorales will diminish. Having Athena with her should help, too -- and making sure they have safe, sturdy toys, nice cat furniture and scratching post and pads, and cozy, warm beds will keep them interested and occupied. Playing with them with "interactive" toys like DaBird, Feline Flyer, or CatDancer is a great way to make sure they get exercise (and get tired out! lol) every day -- 15 minutes in the evening before bed is great.

Can't wait to see 'em and hope those neighbors get the training they need -- oh, do I empathize!
