Hello Everyone!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Just wanted to introduce myself, my name is Shane. I live with my wonderful girlfriend Shannon. Our cat whom was 13 years old passed away 2/28/07. Her passing was extremely hard for the both of us, just seeing Shannon and how hurt she was that Larry passed away was the worst thing I have ever gone through. We miss our Lar-Bear! Larry was a rescue kitty and when we moved out of our parents house she came with us (Shannon's cat ever since she was 8). We spent well over $700 trying to figure out what was wrong with our baby, and went to two different vets.


Larry had a pretty funny story. Next door to my girlfriends grandparents house there was a house that burnt down. Left behind were 3 kittens, Larry, Curly, and Moe. Well, Curly and Moe were hit by cars so my girlfriend didn't want that to happen to Larry so she took Larry home. Well, all this time everyone thought Larry was a male cat....until....Larry had kittens of her own! lol She was a wonderful, unique cat!

Welcome Shafer and Shannon

to TheCatSite and our deepest condolences to you both on the loss of your beloved Larry. We know from personal experience how heartrending it is to lose a feline family member, having gone through this many times. Our tribute to our lost cats is always to adopt another cat and give him/her the love (s)he needs, and a loving, forever home so desperately needed. All nine of our beloved cats are rescued, indoor-only, and spayed/neutered, so they are safe and do not add to the tremendous feline overpopulation explosion. Millions of sweet cats lose their lives annually just because there are not enough good homes for them. We sincerely hope that eventually, you and your girlfriend will consider adopting one, or more, deserving cats from your local shelter/rescue group/sanctuary, and keeping them indoors and getting them "fixed". You sound like loving cat people. Enjoy the forums, and we do hope that you both feel better soon, knowing that Larry is with you always in spirit.

Dear CatloverKS:

My/our condolences to YOU, too, on the loss of your dad. I lost my mom four years ago and I know how hard it hits to lose a parent.

We are bringing home a little poly boy tomorrow!!! I'm really excited and I know Shannon is too! This is the first time Shannon has been happy in quite some time She swore she wouldn't get another cat. I told her though that there's always another kitty in need of a good home with a great mommy AND that it's not replacing our Larry because nothing can ever replace her....here in this link are some pictures of the little guy
