First Kitty, First Post

post #1 of 24
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone,

After wanting a cat since childhood and not being allowed due to allergies, I have finally, with the encouragement of my long term boyfriend, taken the leap and been claimed by an adorable little fuzz ball I lovingly call Evie.

Even though I've always been a "dog person" (since I've only ever had dogs), this little girl has absolutely stolen my heart. She is so much fun and just a ball of love!!!

Since I'm so new to cats and kittens, a lot of her behavior not only entertains, but mysitfies me. After a few months (I've been talking to my cat people friends for input up to this point), I decided to search the web for any hints that might explain some of her antics, and happened across this website a few days ago. After reading through some of the posts, this came across like a wonderful, friendly, knowledgeable community. Though I've never joined a forum group before, ever, I couldn't resist you guys!

Though I have practically zero knowledge of cats (I'm learning as we live together!), I hope to be some kind of addition to this site, and look forward to getting to know everyone and their babies!

Thanks for the warm welcome, all!

Evie is a little super star and loves acting and posing for the camera- it's just her mommy falls short and doesn't know how to post her pretty pictures here! I did read the instructions, and as I cannot post directly, it seems I need an external website in order to show you guys her Royal Cuteness.

Anyone feel like guiding an internet-know-nothing how to get a website so I can show pictures?

Thank you, Karen. That's actually the post I read from which I figured out that I need some kind of other site... I just haven't yet figured out how to get started! He he

I will, though! That's a good start, so thanks for the pointer! I'm off to go figure it out!

Oh, they sure do, that's the first thing I've learned!

I'm already having a great time here, and this is only my first day!

For all who have asked for pictures, I think I finally figured out how to post them on here! Thanks again everyone.

Hi Janet,

Welcome to TCS. This is a great forum. You can post pictures in the fur pictures forum, I believe. It's under General Forums (click on the main category to get additional threads). If you have them saved on your computer, you can post them there. You'll have to look for a thread (under fur pictures) there that tells you what size is optimal and so forth. If you hit go advanced when you post, I think, there's a tool bar button that allows you to attach the pictures, and then there's a way also to insert them into the post.

There might be an easier way, but that's what I did.

Welcome Evie, Janet and family

to TheCatSite and we hope you'll feel right at home here and learn a lot about felines! Little Evie sounds so cute -- perhaps you'll post some photos of her so we can all see how adorable she is! You've probably read a lot by now, but may we offer that the first thing to do is to make an appointment with a good veterinarian for Evie's checkup and "kitten shots", which many vets offer as a package at a savings. Then, as soon as she's four months or so, she'll need to have another appointment to be spayed (as this will keep her healthier and safer, and stop her from adding to the millions of cats and kittens for whom are are not homes, who lose their lives annually in the us alone!). Keeping her indoors-only will mean she'll be safer, flea-and-tick-free, and probably live longer than if you let her out. Good luck with these first steps, and we know you're going to love being owned by a cat!
