Hello to all msg

Thread Starter 
I live with 4 cats. My own are Divot, a 10-yr-old orange tabby, and Josie, a 3-yr-old calico. My roommate's cats are Turkish Angoras: Claire, age 9 and black, and Arthur, age 5 and white.

Divot came to me via my old board Acme Cats' Window, now discontinued. He came with his companion cat, Baffy, from another poster who lived half-way across the country. Sadly, Baffy developed CRF and went to the Bridge 2.5 years ago.

I am prone to writing sonnets about my cats and those of people I know.

I'm finding this a bit complicated. I tried to upload a pix, but it failed. Things keep popping up. But I guess I will catch on.

Welcome to the site! Pretty soon you'll all be old pro's at this board's set up. Pictures are a nemesis of many here. Check out the "Your Computer Questions...Answered" thread in the sticky at the top of The Cat Lounge in the "Our Super Duper Important Threads." Posting pics is covered in depth there.

We also have a forum for all of our literary escapades if you would like to share some of your sonnets with us. It's called Paws and Reflect, and we would love to see it.

My avatar is actually a picture of my cat Trent when he was a little kitten. Once you get 100 posts you can make your own avatar or use one from the web (that's where Lheeza got hers). Seems like a lot of posts but it's real easy to get that many. (Since personally created avatars are stored on the server and take up bandwidth for the site, the owner wanted to make sure it was people who are going to stick around who can have their own made ones.)

To get an avatar, go into User CP and then Edit Options. At the bottom is where you can get an avatar. As a Kitten, you have limited options (still some real cute ones, though), and the more you post the more options you have. Kind of an incentive program.

Welcome to the site!

Don't worry about the pics. It's always confusing when you first post a pic. After that it's a breeze!

Enjoy your stay.

Welcome! Don't feel bad. I've been here since Sept. and I just figured out how to post smilies from other sites! I also couldn't post pics when I got here. There are a lot of people who can give you info if ask!
