Hi, from Murray and Simba's mom

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hi there - I have two kitties, though only one is currently living with me. My first-ever cat, Simba (whom I found at a pet store when I was 21 - he was a tiny kitten, looking so sad and lonely in a cage all by himself), lives with my parents at the moment, because I moved across the country and didn't want to uproot him that long distance. Besides, my parents spoil him, especially my mom - he's better off! Simba turned me from not particularly liking cats, to absolutely loving them. He is a life-saver, too, literally - when I was depressed, he lay in bed with me (which he normally never did) and cheered me up, and when I was suicidal, I would think of how much Simba would miss me, and that would keep me going. I miss him, but he and I both love it when I come to visit - it's just like old times. Simba is an orange tabby.

The cat who currently lives with me is Murray. I have posted his story in the SOS Forum. He was a stray who decided to "adopt" me. He is a big Siamese. Unlike Simba, who's more independent, Murray is a cuddler. He follows me around everywhere I go, around the house. He is great company.

Both of my cats are indoors-only. There are too many dangers outside! I've never come close to losing Simba, but Murray has almost gotten away a couple times - I'm lucky to still have him!

I look forward to posting and reading posts on this site.

I have digital pix of Murray (though not very good). No digital pix of Simba, though I should scan some at Kinko's or something, sometime...

Thanks to all for the welcome.

Regarding pictures, I think I don't have pic-posting privileges because I'm not a premium member. :-( I think that also means I can't use an avatar...

That's not the case. You can post pics. You can do so by joining Photobucket (free) and cut and paste the entire IMG imformation and place it into your message.
