Hi, Holly! We're happy to have you! We have lots of Canadian members. In fact, my cousins live in Ontario. I wish I knew what is giving you problems. Let's see...To go to the most recent answer to a thread, there is a little arrow to click on the right hand side of the most recent poster's name, be sure to ask for Private messages notifications to be sent to you (in user options under user cp), don't be afraid to join discussions in progress, D.T. stands for Daily Thread, and is a good way to get to know people, check out f.a.q. at the top of this page, and ask questions!
These are a few hints that helped me, but you probably have other questions. We are interested in loads of things, and if you post in the wrong forum, a moderator will move it for you. The Cat Lounge is general conversation. And there are specialized forums for every aspect of cat care or problems. Have fun exploring!!
