Hi, my name is renae, FurMommy to Mittens and Dexter

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi everyone,

My name is Renae, I'm 24 and I now am a fur mommy to two precious kitties!

First is Mittens. I adopted her from a rescue, she had been trapped inside of an engine that a fire department cut apart to save her. She had to get some surgery and she's fine now. I unfortunately got her declawed, and I feel bad about it now. But she's a super girl, and I love her so much. She's super busy, my fiance (he just left for Iraq Tuesday, mittens misses him I"m sure) and I just bought a nice big house. So she travels from window to window and bird watches all day. Oh, and obviously her name suggests she's a polydactyl. She's got 6 toes on each foot in teh front, and 5 of each back/

Here's Mitts:

Dexter is my new kitten, from the same rescue place. He's about 8 weeks old now, and I hope he'll be okay with not being with his mom this young. He's super cute. He looks like a total nerd though, so we named him Dexter, it seemed like a nerdy name (I"m a huge nerd btw, I'm an engineer). He only had 3 paws, 4 legs though. His mom chewed off his paw by accident when he was born, so he'll never know his paw is gone...so I've heard. I do have a lot of questions, I've never had a "special needs" cat before. I'll ask in another forum though.

Here's Dexies:

You can see his missing paw in this picture.

About me in general. I'm an electrical engineer and work for a defense contractor in Dayton, OH. I went to University of Dayton, and got two bachelor degrees in computer and electrical engineering. I recently bought a house with my fiance. My fiance's name is Mike, and he's in the Army reserves. We've been dating for 5.5 years now. He recently left for Iraq, and hopefully will be back for our wedding in 2008! Both of our "kids" miss their daddy...

I look forward to meeting all of you.

Oh, also. I own my own message board, I won't plug it, it's for military wives, but thank you Thecatsite.com for using vBulletin, I use it too, and it's the best message board software in teh world!!!

Hello & welcome to the forum. Mittens is the same color as my 15yo cat Coco. And what a little sweetie Dexter is. They'll help pass the time while Mike is OS. Look forward to hearing more about your kitties & seeing more pics too.
