Hi all!

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hello cat lovers! My name is Fawn and I joined this forum a few days ago. Right now I am dealing with introducing a new kitten to a cranky, somewhat traumatized older cat. I have always been an animal lover with a long list of animals in my past. I recently graduated from the University of Iowa with a degree in Elementary Education, and have been substitute teaching in Des Moines, Iowa. I love my job!

My pet household has included Thora, my older cat since my sophomore year of high school, when I brought her down from MN after a bout with fatty liver disease from which she almost died since my dad was taking care of her and didn't want to pay for a vet visit. Since then she has been a little strange, but always loving to me. It took her a while to get used to my boyfriend moving in, since he took her place in my bed and took attention away from him

Now we have a brand new kitty, 8 week old Eli, who we are trying to slowly introduce. He is a spitfire- today he got himself trapped underneath the refrigerator-- a little too adventurous! I look forward to hearing and giving advice and getting to know you and your cats!

Hi My name is Kim and I am brand new to this site and am so excited! I love reading through the posts. I can't remember a time in my life when I did not have a cat. And now I have many and it seems to keep growing!! I just rescued a beautiful guy and I hope I can get him and my others to get along with one another. Any tips? All of the shelters are so overcrowded right now and he is such a sweetie, I would love to add him to my group-3 indoor cats and a rescued feral who stays inside and is also becoming such a love. I also have 2 dogs and for the last year have fostered 3 cats and they have been adopted by my daughter but they will be moving with her in September. It is hectic right now, but I love it and I love all of them. I'm glad to be a part of this group and look forward to reading lots more!!
