Hi Everyone

post #1 of 18
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. My name is Rachel. I have 6 inside cats (Bosco, Molly, Buddy, Max, Jasmine, and Bear) and right now one feral named Pumkin and 2 strays named Phoenix and Moose that live on my back porch (its closed in but they can come and go whenever they want to). Pumkin is very specail to me. He has been around for a couple years now and just a couple weeks ago decided that he would let me pet him. Maybe one day I will be able to convince him that being an inside kitty isn't so bad.

I also have cockatiels and a blue and gold macaw named Charlie.

It is great that Pumkin is starting to trust you to touch him, that is such a big move for a feral.

Photos of all of them are welcome

We used to have a lot of strays in our neighborhood, I think they evetually all found homes.

Welcome Rachel and Family
toTheCatSite! We hope you'll love it here as much as we do! You sound like a great purrson. THANK YOU for opening your heart and your home to so many sweet fur-persons. I know you feel as if the reward is great (all of us who truly love cats do!) -- and a big part of it is the joy you have in knowing that those in your care are safe and loved. I know just what you mean about Pumkin -- how many times have I said the same thing myself when gaining the trust of a homeless cat! We are currently 9 rescued, indoor-only, spayed/neutered felines ranging from Nicolas at 16+ down to Baby Su at 2, and one devoted servant who's lived with, loved, rescued, and advoCATed for cats all her life. You'll find a lot of "peas in a pod" here at TheCatSite and we hope you'll feel right at home here!

Welcome to TCS! You have a large family! I'm glad you are making progress with you Pumpkin. It takes a long time for many of the ferals/strays to come around, doesn't it?

If you need help with anything on the site, please let me know !

Sounds like you have quite the menagerie!! You seem very happy though with all the responsibility of a loving fur family and I think you will really like it here as well. Everyone is really great and the site is quite quite helpful if you have questions about things!!! Hope to see you around!

Hi and welcome to TCS!

That's great news about Pumpkin allowing you to pet him. Hopefully, his trust in you will continue to grow.

Thanks everyone. I do have my hands full...not just with furry babies but feathered ones too. I wouldn't have it any other way though. I am very happy about Pumkin...I thought it would never happen. I am sooo glad that he has finally decided that we are ok though.

Dear Kaylacat:

You DO have your hands full all right! Oh, I'm so glad about Pumkin too...sounds like he knows a good, loving family and home when he sees one

Cute parrot icon! Oh, I can hear "my" cats "ikking" at it now!
