I'm fairly new to TCS (joined 3/1), and I've been trying to contribute and make myself known. I realize many of you have connections and know each other either virtually or in 3D.

That being said, I would like to say that pre-Sammie (I brought her home in January 2007 as a kitten), I was a dog person and didn't 'get' cats.

OMG! Now, she has captivated me and the more I learn, the more I respect and admire her and her kin.

Permit me to talk about my love.

She chats with me constantly. I ask a question, she answers.

She loves to be held in the crook of my arm like a baby.

She knows what 'treat' means and runs to the pantry to get them when offered.

She knows what 'da bird' means and runs to the closet where he is stored when asked if she wants to play.

When I get in the tub, she gets on the ledge...she dips a paw in the water and drinks the bath water.

Also, when I'm in the tub, she decides to eat (her bowls are in the bathroom). She munches and looks periodically at me with her sweet eyes squinted.

The same squinty eyed look is what I get when she is happily curled up beside me on the return of my desk.

She is beautiful and as I look at the pics of your babies here at TCS I realize how absolutely gorgeous our kitties are.

Ahhhhh, love. Kitty love. How come nobody told me about this wonder before?

Thanks for letting me express my love as a semi-newbie.

Ahhh yep, nothing beats the love we share with our furry friends. Popsie is my best bud, always making me laugh and giving me unconditional love.

youre right. tho i have always LOVED cats and wanted one of my own, i was never allowed (i lived with my grandfather & he hates them), so i never knew the love of a cat. until i got my baby boy. now i have two, & nothing can compare to the love a cat can give... thats the reason my name is KiTTYL0VE. its something that everyone should kno, & i hear when someone hates cats & its just something i cant understand. how can you hate something so precious & beautiful? i dont get it at all.

Thank you so much for sharing your precious Sammy with us. Newbies or long time members always love hearing about anyone's companion. They are unique and wonderful creatures.

Sammy sounds like such a special kitten! What a little doll.

I was like you, I thought I was more of a dog person. My husband actually suggested cats. Yeah, well, now I have 4 kitties, am webmaster on 2 companion animal welfare related websites, am a moderator here, and am seriously obsessed with my kitties. How can you not be with cute little creatures that are the embodiment of love?

Sammie sounds like such a wonderful companion. I am a firm believer that people who say they don't like cats just haven't had the pleasure of being owned by one They have a completely unfounded reputation of being aloof. But they are more careful with their affection, and when they show you love, it is such a genuine, unconditional love.

I'm so pleased you have such great kitty love!

Welcome to the world of crazy cat people! No-one without a cat can understand the bond we have with them. Sammie sounds a wonderful companion.

Well said, SarahP!

Welcome, SammiesMom! I always love hearing about other people's fur kids (of any species, but especially cats).

Sammie sounds wonderful. We love pictures here, and would really enjoy seeing him.
I was never much of an animal person, as I did not grow up with pets, until Fred showed up. That was a 18 year friendship, and I hope you and Sammie have a long, loving time together. Welcome to TCS.

Welcome to TCS & the wonderful world of cats. I always tell cat converts that your life will never be the same. There is nothing in the world like that look of contentment that they give. I love dogs too, but to earn a cats love is something really special.

Welcome to Sammie too. She sounds like a very smart little girl and we can hardly wait to hear more.

I have always had cats - since I was 6 years old. And I can still name everyone of them! I think that all of us here who know and love cats have another thing (besides that) in common - we all interact with and treat cats as loving, intelligent "friends" not dumb animals!
Thank you for sharing your sweet Sammie with us - and welcome to TCS!

Awww, thanks everyone! I have pictures of her on the Pics forum and also posted on the Newbie area when I first arrived.

Yep, she is my little love.

Did I mention the walking across the laptop while I'm here? Of course, nothing could be so important to divert my attention from her!!
