Hi Linda & Kelly! Welcome to TCS! This isn't a real time chat room - sorry, I don't know what an "IRC" chat room is. Here, in the Cat Lounge, we are free to discuss just about anything (just remember - this is a family site!
We have a fun space dedicated to Captioning Cat Pics for funny kitty postcards in the "Caption This" forum.
Feel free to post about your cats - pics or just general goofy things they do. Feel free to browse the threads to find any that interest you.
We have forums dedicated to all issues about cats, however - Health & Nutrition, Care and Grooming, Behavior... feel free to take your time and snoop around.
Careful though - many find it addictive. :tounge2:
