Finally getting to an intro thread!

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hello! I'm Breella, Bree for short is fine with me. I'm a college student going into zoology and a foster for the Central New York Cat Coalition. Aside from the countless fosters that come into my life every year I have two cats of my own. Oliver and Milo.

Oliver is a 1 year old FEMALE orange tabby (I know, but I LOVE the name). I spotted Oliver when I took a visit to another fosters house and fell in love with her. She is indoor/outdoor and loves to bring in her conquests as a show of affection (much to my amusement, and the disgust of my boyfriends mother!)

Milo is a 8 month old orange tabby male. My boyfriend's mother got a phone call one day about a litter of kittens at the garbage dump. The mother had disappeared and they were told we had a lactating mother who might take them in, and so we did. Milo found a soft spot in my heart after one of his litter mates, whom I bottlefed because the foster queen rejected, died. Milo is a very smart cat, he plays fetch and comes when I call him.

We share our home with my Bearded Dragon, my boyfriend's cat, Shadow: Shadow is a true mixbreed. She's got long fur in the front, short fur in the back and a spotty tail. She's sort of black with some grey patching and IMO she radiates the allycat stereo type.

And upstairs from our apartment is where my boyfriend's mother and most of the fosters live.

I've had cats most of my life, and even tried my hand at Pre-Veterinary Medicine-- which I found to be rather hard and decided to shelve that goal for the more attainable (and much more fun) of becoming a ZOOKEEPER! WHOO HOO!

Welcome, Bree !

I'm a new member here as well and I hope, like me, that you find this site to be extremely welcoming, friendly, supportive, and informative. I couldn't have dreamed up a better forum and I am just so grateful that I happened upon this site and the wonderful people and kitties who came before me (and who will hopefully continue to come in the future).

How wonderful is it that you are a foster for cats and kittens in need. I hope to one day be able to foster animals as well, but am truly awed by the selflessness of individuals already willing and able to take on animals that they will later need to rehome or adopt out. Unfortunately, time and space are not on my side presently so fostering is not necessarily an option, but it is so heartening to see others who open their homes and hearts time and time again to kitties in need.

Oliver and Milo sound like adorable kitties. But, really, I'll need to see some pics to be able to say that they're cute for sure ! I love that your female cat's name is Oliver and I've always thought that Milo was a cute name. And you can never go wrong with an orange cat! I, myself, have a medium-haired, orange and white female named Cassidy. The reds (as they're truly named as a group) are so visually striking and I think they have some of the best personalities as well. My Cass is one of the most laid back cats I've ever had the pleasure to know and my experience with other orange kitties has been very much the same. Don't get me wrong, they can be spunky, but their orange-y cuteness sure makes them irresistible! Ha ha! And Shadow just sounds really, really interesting. I'd be curious to see if the image my mind conjured up is anything like her in real life. See? Even more reasons to post pics !

Anyway...enough of my rambling on. Welcome, welcome, welcome to you and your kitties. I can't wait to get to know you all better and, rest assured, you'll definitely be seeing me around .

Shadow, Oliver and Scooty (last summer)

Shadow can be really camera shy, so I don't have many photos of her.

This next one is Ja'Mima (or Ja'Mama as she came to be known because she fostered a litter as hers were weaning) [Ja'Mama also needs a good home if you're in CNY and like calm older cats!]

Milo is the one in the middle on the left, above him is Peach, below him is Trooper (who passed on) and to the right is Einstien and Daisy-Duke

Here is Milo taking stock of my fish tank!

and Milo's closeup:

And now, feel the orange love!

(I call them orange because my boyfriend's mother dislikes orange cats, Milo is considered Buff by her, and Oliver-- she doesn't like period because Oliver is a natural hunter.)

What a beautiful fur family...

Sending vibes that sweet Ja'Mama soon has a forever loving home.

The fish tank shot is a classic.
