new rescued kitty! Hi! My name is Fiona

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone! What a great forum! Thanks for being here.

My cat Fiona is about a year and a half old. I got her on dec. 1st from a local shelter. One of the shelter women said her nephew had tried to save this beautiful cat a few times. She couldn't believe it when she saw her being brought in by someone else!

She was in a house with a bunch of animals, infested with fleas so badly that the neighbors moved when they migrated next door. She had two litters under the age of 1. The shelter womans nephew had tried to get her when she was pregnant the first time, he was only able to get the kittens. Unsuccessful the second time around too, with her kittens also

The neighbor down the way took her in and thats where she stayed till she had her shots and got her infestation under control. She has herpes and her eye has a sequestrum on it. Her opthamologists said it isn't deep and should come off by itself. Heres hoping it doesn't start to bother her

But she is sooooooo sweet, sassy too But thats my Fiona! She is so energetic, she is living her kittenhood again! She will actually bring me her bizzy ball in her mouth for me to throw her! So stinkin' cute! I can't take it! LOL Love her to bits!

When we (me and my sister whom i share an apartment with) went to the shelter we were looking for a dog becuase my sister was afraid of getting a cat for many reasons-the most suprising to me becuase she had never shared it before- was that she is afraid of getting bit or scratched.

But, she saw Fiona....we went over and she immediately started to purr and wanted to be petted. (Fiona-not my sister ) LOL She looked pretty bad because her eye was healing from having a bit of it scraped by her opto. doc.-i didn't know it was going to look better in time. But I didn't even care....she had so much personality!

But, my sister was still not giving in about the cat issue. So we went home. I was told by the shelter that they were getting more dogs in the next day and to stop by. So we did. We saw Ms. Fiona again...opened the cage and she paid equal attention to me and my sister-she is so lovey!

We went and looked at some dogs, even played with a few. We realized we are NOT dog people. My sister was the first one to say "lets go look at Fiona again" and the rest is history! We picked her up the next day.

We both think she is the most beautiful and fun cat ever. She is extremely vocal and needy. But so are we. We can relate! My sister also has gotten over her cat-phobia....good thing because Ms. Fi (naughty girl) likes to go after her feet under the comforter. Rachel tolerates her naughtiness with good humour. We love her...what can we say? You all understand!

She is a star acrobat too! Likes to roll and tumble and jump into the air....she even jumped up to the top of the door jam! Now I know she has small feet but come on! LOL

I will post a pic as soon as I can.

Thanks for just reading through that long post! I am already learning alot and feel right at home here. I love all the pics i've seen and will be sure to share mine asap. I can hopefully get one of my previous kitty....they look alot alike! (not my reason for getting her-their personalities are totally different)

Welcome Fiona and Family

to TheCatSite and congratulations -- YOU MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE!!! As we like to say, CATS RULE -- dogs drool...(I'd defend dogs, but I've never been, nor will I ever be, a "dog person" -- had to take care of two of them over the years, neither one of which I wanted, and taking care of them did nothing to make me a dog person. Cats are so much more beautiful, clean, classy, and, well, I just prefer them all the way around! Living with them all my life may have something to do with that...

Look forward to seeing your photo(s) and chatting!
