hey!

post #1 of 25
Thread Starter 
thought i`d say hi and introduce myself, i`m Leah and i don`t have a cat at the moment but will be picking my new baby up in 3 weeks time

i`ve had cats in the past and thought i`d wait until my daughter was a bit older before introducing another one to the house.

i`m not sure if my cat is a boy or girl (the so called breeder is terrible, i wish i could take all the cats away) for now i`m saying girl. she has brown black and white patches so at first i thought calico but then read they had to have red.....

anyway i thought joining here would be a good idea since it`s been a while since i had a cat and any advice is always helpful

thanks for the welcome!

here`s a pic of her i took last saturday, it`s quite blurry but i didn`t want to stress her out anymore, i just can`t wait to get her away from the horrible 'breeder' the woman makes me so angry with the way she treats her cats



she`s such a cutie, before i met her i was thinking of the name jaya but as soon as i seen her i thought twix...now i`m stuck as to what the name will be......

Aww Twix is a sweet name

Even though the pic's blurry, you can still make out a cute little face!

Hello and Welcome to TCS!

Twix seems to be an ideal name for your new kitten, from looking at the picture it suits!

Hope you enjoy the forums!

Welcome to TCS!!! You have found the best cat site around! And you have the same name as my little girl I just spell it funny!

A breeder that's breeding domestic cats???

I don't believe the cat needs any red to be a calico, it just needs three colors. Also, calicos are only girls (although there are a few freak unsterile males every now and again) so it's a girl

i use the term breeder very loosely with this woman, she basically lets her cats go out and get pregnant all the time so animal abuser may be more appropriate! i`ve contacted cats protection who will be keeping an eye on her. i was almost tempted not to take this little girl when i found out about the circumstances until she mentioned possibly keeping it if it was a girl to breed

thanks to everyone for the welcomes and i think twix will be the name, can`t wait to get this little girl home now

You've got to be kidding!!!! I can't believe someone would actually breed domestic cats on purpose!

And she doesn't even know that 99% of calicos are female! Oh my goodness....

Well I'm glad you got that girl from her and reported her. Sadly there's not much else you can do

well i haven`t got the cat yet but only another week i`m still not sure about the calico thing as everywhere i read it seems to say the cat has to have red......oh well i`ll soon be able to have a look for myself and find out the true sex. i can`t wait to get her home, everytime i go to buy things for my rats i end up with lots of cat toys as well haha

Hi, I'm Kristy and just joined recently too.

I love the name Twix too, plus it's a gender-nuetral name, so it will work with a boy or a girl

I can't wait to see that lady on "Animal Precinct" or something on Animal Planet Hopefully someone can intervene and stop her from breeding like that

Hi and Welcome! Twix is a wonderful name for your new cutie. Looking forward to more pictures of her when she joins your household.

As for that backyard breeder with no knowledge and zero morals, I hope the law will catch up with her and save future kitties from being abused in her hands.

thought i`d update, i brought twix home today and she`s sat on my cousins lap most of the night (can probably smell her cats) she`s infested with fleas and god only knows what else but we have the vets first thing tomorrow so i`m sure she`ll be fixed soon. i could never have asked for a friendlier cat and i`m glad i got her away from that lady! right now she`s curled up sleeping beside me twitching away. apparently she was being fed adult cat food with cows milk and some water mixed in

anyway here`s a pic i took earlier when she decided my tv unit was a good bed lol

Poor Twix!

Glad she's got a new loving home now, though

She's so sweet
