It's a pleasure to be here. I have been scanning over these boards for a bit now and you all seem really friendly and much fun. Let me tell you a little about myself.

My name is Cassandra (Cassie). I'm 19 years old and live with my boyfriend (Craig) and his 2 roomies in San Francisco. While they work I'm at home keeping the house clean. No easy task.. living with three men keeps a homemaker busy! I'm getting ready to start college soon. I am also a MAJOR pet lover. I used to have a pomeranian named Candi.. she was an adorable little dog. I left her back in Houston with my mother when I moved here. All my life I have loved and adored cats but my ex step-father would never allow me to have any

Well after living with my boyfriend here in San Francisco for a month we decided to find a way to cure my lonliness during the day. Just two days ago we came home with 3 siamese kittens. All three boys, they are my pride and joy and they definitely keep me on my toes. I've also discovered I am allergic to them So I'm going to see a doctor about desensitizing me to the allergen. Despite the sneezing, itching, and watery eyes I'm playing with and loving them constantly. I've been taking anti-histamines to help until I set up a doctors appointment.

My goodness.. I've told my whole life story nearly! Sorry! LOL I tend to get carried away. Well I guess now you know a little bit about me! I'd like to get to know each of you as well!


P.S. I've only been able to name one.. I've having such a hard time coming up with names. Any suggestions?

Hello and welcome to The Cat Site! I'm glad to meet you, Craig, your other flatmates and your three kittens!

I'm sorry you're allergic to the cats, but I'm glad you're seeing a medical professional about the problem. It's a shame you were deprived of the joy of keeping cats as a child, but perhaps it's just as well — since your step-father would have been even more rigid (if such a thing was possible) with his taboos.

Please let us know how things go with your allergy! And do keep us abreast of what's happening with your cats. Thank you for giving the kittens a home in spite of their unfortunate effect upon your health. I'm confident you'll be prescribed a protocol which will make the kittens' presence a totally positive experience for all of you!

Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. LOL I'm sure you will all be annoyed with me and my rather long posts soon. I'm home all day so besides doing laundry and housework all I have is my computer and kittens. I don't even have television *cries* I do have a t.v. just not cable. Though my boyfriend did just buy me the whole first season of "Sex in the City" on dvd so I wouldn't be bored all day. Yay! Can't wait to get season 2!

Welcome to the forum! Gosh, that sucks that you have allergies. Hope the Doc can take care of that. 3 Siamese kittens, eh? I'm very partial to Siamese myself. OK, who am I kidding? If it Meows and purrs I'm partial. OK, so I'm weak!
