Arlyn - thanks for your welcome back and your kind words about my beautiful old girl Jazz.
Laureen - thanks for posting those links for me. I love the stories about their adoptions. Some of the names cracked me up though, who would want to call a cat monitor? I thought link and click were quite cute names. It's always hard adopting cats into cat familys rather than kittens but I assume Chip settled in OK?
Looking at baby Firefox's pictures I actually thought she looked older than 4 weeks, but just so undernourished, poor wee thing, she looks absolutely gorgeous in your siggy, so well done a testament to your care for her.
Sandra - thanks for your post. Really lovely to see you!
mews2much - Congratulations on Cleo your sphynx, I know you love her. She's really gorgeous. Depends what she wants to know about Persians? Maybe she could travel to a cat show with you and talk to breeders face to face? I'm in New Zealand, so can't be much help except answer questions by email. I've only got 1 Persian, the rest are Exotics, they are my real love. Thanks for your email.
Susan - thanks for clearing that up about visitor messages. I posted one to Mary Anne when I first checked in, to say hi, don't know how to check if I have a reply though but I did get my first PM from Heidi! It's good to come back and feel so welcome, I know that maybe I wont get the chance to check in everyday and answer every post like I used to but it's nice to be here. Thanks so much.
Jan - nice to know you were going to PM me, feel free to try now!!
Heidi - thanks again! I think I will avoid posting in IMO, but I've always loved to read it. Infact I think I spend more time on the computer at TCS reading who was a democrat and who was a republican during the elections than I did studying!!
Hi Hope!! Could never forget you and Simba's crazy antics. Infact your website link was one of the first I went to when I got back and saw Stanley the Persian and got all teary eyed. He was so gorgeous!!!! Thanks for your post.
Sharky - thanks for your post. I'm glad you like my babies.
