Just wanted to say hello!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi Group!

I've been visiting off and on for about 2 weeks now, and just wanted to say hello, and introduce myself. I'm Geri, and my two "babies" are Patches and Pesty. Pesty actually started out life with hubby and I with a different name (Boots), but after getting to know him better, we quickly discovered that Pesty was a much more fitting name!

Patches was born in the summer of 2001. I got her in the fall from hubbies dad just after moving in to our first home. I wanted a calico so bad! She was an outside kitten.....my "garage sale kitty" I call her. She has been my best friend ever since she came to live with me. She is where ever I am, and at night she races me to the recliner to sit on my lap. She's a talker, and as hubby says, "she's a little princess!"

Pesty came to us I guess around February of this year. Someone had dropped off a puppy in our yard, and we were keeping him out in an insulated room in our barn. Hubby was out checking on the puppy, and heard a "meow" behind him. He looked and saw this scruffy looking red and white kitty in the barn. Pretty soon Pesty was rubbing on his legs, begging for attention. Next thing I know I see hubby at the patio door holding a kitty, saying "can we keep him honey?" Pesty has been with us ever since. He is a very thankful kitty, and lets us know everyday just how happy he is to be inside with food to eat. He loves to be pet, and looks for a little "lovin" whenever you are around. Just like Patches...........he is where you are! We figured when we got him that he was about 6 months old. He's still quite playful, and annoys Patches on a daily basis! And as you can also tell by the pictures.......he's just a goofy cat!

Patches and Pesty..........formerly known as Prince and Princess........making themselves comfy in our new house! We just moved, and trust me, they've already taken over!

The other love of my life.........my miniature horse gelding named I Spot Trouble.

Thank you for letting me introduce myself!

Thank you everyone! I look forward to joining in on some of the topics, and getting to know some of you. I love taking and sharing pictures, and will hopefully have the opportunity to do so often.

Yes, he's my baby! That is one spoiled boy too! I wanted a leopard appy so bad, and the only way I could afford one in the miniature breed was to buy young. I bought him when he was only 5 months, and just weaned. He's only 19 months now, and has the sweetest most easy going personality! He will hopefully be going for training next summer to learn how to pull a cart.

Thanks again all!

Thank you everyone, I feel so welcome!

Can I please ask a question? I've been busy with my small business, and haven't had time to "snoop" . What does it mean when someone donates kitty food and butterflies to you? Forgive me for not knowing...........I think I have alot to learn........but am looking forward to it all!!!

Thank you!

Excellent question Geri....
The gifts that we receive and give are a relatively new feature on TCS.
They are a fun way for members to acknowledge special dates, events of other members or just for plain fun.
They can be found in the vbPlaza menu, located in the center of your top bar.
Here is a link that will take you to a vbPlaza help thread.

Also, as you build up points, you can collect ribbons that represent causes that are important to you.
You can see the ones I bought...

This is a rather poor explanation but the main thing about the gifts is that they enhance what we share here at TCS.
