Hi, I just joined.
I need advice with my cats so I decided to join, also hoping to learn some more.
My one cat, very dear to me passed away this December, but the younger cat I have just moved into my new apartment with me. Her name is Xena, and I am only allowed to have one cat, so she'll prolly be the only cat I will be talking about. Although, I live in the city and next door is a lot with a dozen kitten strays local students feed. And the college I go to has tons and tons of cats they take in and are part of campus life. So I'm around cats a lot, but only close to Xena.

A little about her... shes seven, I got her from a no-kill shelter in the country. She has an ear cyst, which we decided against surgery, but I have to clean her ear every week or so, because it itches her. When she was 1 or 2 she had head trauma, but recovered almost completely. She is a very happy cat, especially since she got to move in with me (she missed me my first year of college).

So I hope to learn some new things and try and help other people out.

Welcome Xena and C

to TheCatSite and THANK YOU for adopting Xena from a no-kill shelter. I'm so glad she found you -- you sound like a very loving caregiver for her. Our deepest sympathy to you on the loss of your other dear cat -- we know how hard it is to lose a beloved feline. FYI, if the kittens and cats you mention are outside and are being fed as a colony, do the caregivers know about Alley Cat Allies? It's the national feral/homeless cat advocacy organization and can give them a lot of good information and possibly help with getting the cats sterilized, vaccinated, checkups, and kittens adopted into loving homes. Their website is in case you want to give it to the students.

All 9 felines here are rescued, indoor-only and spayed/neutered, of course. I've lived with, loved, rescued, and advocated for cats all my life, and am always so glad to hear when people do the right thing by cats. Hope to see you on the forums, and maybe you'll share some photos of Xena sometime? We love photos at TheCatSite!

Everyone is so nice here, but of course cat people always are! Hehe.
I posted some pictures of Xena here:

And to Tarasgirl06:
Yeah, I never get my cats at pet stores. Always "no-kill" or local farms where my parents live.
As for the strays, I'll try and catch one of the students next time I see them. I live in NYC so stray cats are extremly common, I only planned to call like ASPCA if I saw any of them injured. I always look for them on my way to school. Maybe they guy that owns the lot owns them too... hmm
