Hello from AZ!

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi all,

I'm a college student in Arizona, studying English Literature. I had a cat through most of secondary school (Gato) but, because he was indoor/outdoor, he disappeared one day and we hadn't found him since. I was heartbroken over that and it took me about four years until I was ready for another pet. Aside from my current cat, I also have two lively guinea pigs.

For the last three years I've been caring for a stray cat, named Kitty. She came to our house a few summers ago, looking ragged and skinny and in need of a home. I just recently took her to the vet for an exam and vaccinations and am happy to report that she's in great health (just has dry skin and mild tartar build up). In a couple weeks, she'll be going in for spay, additional shots, and probably some blood and fecal test.

I would love to have Kitty as an indoor cat (especially since my previous experience with indoor/outdoor animals) but I think she's been outdoors for too long to deprive her from it. Any tips on this or making a transition to exclusively indoor life? Also, any tips for her dry skin?

Thanks and see you around the forum!
