Hi everyone, my name is Darryl.

I was dating a girl that I was working with who was a cat lover.

I grew up with with cats and never really paid attention to them.

Another person I worked with thought it was a good idea to bring me in a cat.
She was gray, she looked like a squirrel or even a rat, I never thought a cat could be this ugly.

turns out she was a Siamese lynx point.

at first we were oil and water, boy did I hate her with her hair, etc..

I used to lock her in my closet at night and curse her when she meowed.

her name is Jordan.

she is 10 years old and I love her more than words can express.

since then I picked up 2 strays - one that was being handed out of a box.

She is Miss Jinx and I call her that because she almost died when she was getting spayed - she is a Siamese torte point - she is 8.

next was sub-zero who got that name because of his terrible behavior, I found him in a hole in the ground - he is 3 years and behaves almost perfectly now.

I could write a book about my cats, so I will leave it at this.

and I look forward to being a part of this community.

You say you could "write a book" about your cats.

Maybe you should! You wouldn't be the first author who got a great start and formed a career like that!

Welcome to TCS!!!!! My baby girl Leya had issues with her spay too!!! Apparently she was the "unluckly" 1% that has complications and goes blind from the surgery. She's a great cat and you would never guess she was blind, you would just wonder why she was such a purrfect cat and never jumped on the counters

Your kitties are all absolutely beautiful!!!

thank you all for the warm welcome.

I never imagined that cats could get a hold of me.

I am fascinated by their individual personalities.

I have done a lot of charity work and most people can't understand why I am this way.

I am kind of an alpha male.

whatever, I guess - I am fortunate enough to have cats who can't stand to be more than 3 feet away from me.
