Hi everyone! I'm pretty new to this forum stuff, so bear with me while I learn! I've been looking for a place to brag about my new kitty where someone will care, so I thought, if this isn't the place, there isn't one in existence! For my 15th birthday, a few months ago, I convinced my mom to let me adopt a cat. ever since I lost my Herculese I've wanted another kitty to brighten my days. I told my mom about the cats and kittens down at the shelter where I volunteer in the summer, and I sold her on the idea of rescuing one. That day, I brought home a gorgeous 2 year old I call Sasha. She's a tortoise-shell, and I just love her. But we've had some difficult times since we brought her home. For the first few days, everything went great, but then we had to take her to the vet for her check-up. she had an abscess by her tail that the shelter had missed, and would need an operation. knowing what would happen if we took her back, I insisted on having her treated, and since I'm a spoiled only child (I admit it!) we went ahead and did it. A month later, she surprised us all by having two premature kittens, both of whom died shortly. A week later, however, she had another two beautiful babies, whom we all absolutely adore! We've named our baby girls Turtle and Tag, which fit them perfectly. Sasha was recently spayed because of a uterine infection; the kittens are four weeks old today. Everyone is doing fine so far, and Sasha has calmed down considerably. I just love my kitties, and you can bet that as soon as I've figured out how to put my pics on the web, you'll be seeing them!!! I just had to brag about my babies a little, I couldn't help it. they're so beautiful, and I hope they make it. thanks for putting up with me!
