Is a cat crazy, cat loving lady welcome here?

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi, I'm so glad to find this forum. I need a place where others can understand my love for my cats. I need a place to tell my stories and ask what you'd do. I need friends. Thanks to the person who posted this link on a U2 forum Thanks for being here!

Could someone please tell me how to put in a custom avatar? I want this one, it's one of my cats:



Thanks!

Hi and welcome. I'm reasonably new here myself. I don't know how to put a custom avatar up either. I think you have to have a certain amount of posts before you can have a custom avatar, but I'm not sure.

Welcome to the boards. We all look forward to hearing from you and seeing all of your kitty pictures. You do have to have a certain number of post before you can use a custom avator. It's 300 I think so keep posting

Right it is 300 posts before the custom avatar can be used.

Thanks, you all are so nice! :hug: I have such a long history of kitties and so many experiences I don't know where to start. Here is a pic of the one who's on my lap right now, Bono.




It's a sad and sweet story. Last year, I had a Bono just like this. I left him in a kennel for a few days, and the owners told me he got out and was eaten by a dog! I was heartbroken. I had been putting pets in that kennel for many years and trusted them competely. They say they don't know how he got out, but I suspect he LET him out while he cleaned the cage, as he had done for his grandfather. But his grandfather was a streetwise tom, Bono was a helpless, sickly, loving little lap cat who had no idea you didn't wander into the wrong cage. He was so little he fit under the gate. I really can't stand to think of his last torturous moments, crying for me. He was so special, and had lost so many lives in such a short life. He got stuck behind the stereo as soon as he learned to crawl, and he was sick several times. He was half the size of his brother and sister at age 3 months. That is a tragic story that will always haunt me. This spring, his mother, Prize, had another litter. (Sorry she went into heat before I could get her fixed and tricked me) But it was a blessing- she had a 'new' Bono. Not only is he almost exactly like him physically, he acts like him. As soon as he could walk, he crawled up on me, up my legs, onto my lap and stared at me- really stared at me- just like the other one, just like no other, not even his littermates. Could it be, in some way, his precious little spirit was allowed to come back across the bridge to spend more time with me? I like to believe that. I'm keeping him as long as forever can be. His 2 siblings now live on a country lady's front porch, and Bono is with me. I hope he always will be.

Oh, that's lovely, I'm so glad some good could be salvaged from the original awful incident. I'll like to believe that too.

Thanks for the pics, he's cute, has got that same determined stare as my Mozart.

Hi Kittyloveu2. I just replied to your last post in the Cat Collectors/Hoarders thread. I wanted to welcome you and hope you enjoy this site as much as I am learning too. If I could only learn to put pictures in I would be sooooo happy. I'll keep on trying. Anyhow, glad you are here to tell your stories. I'll be listening. By the way I'm Tybalt's Mom and I'm aways around, but try to stay out of his way LOL

Beautiful kitty More pictures please!


Barb,have you found the pictures thread in the new kids forum. It tells you step by step how to post
I don't know but sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn't. I guess it is how you hold your mouth when you do it.

Welcome to the site!

Oh, the loss of Bono had to be just heartwrenching. I have to believe what you believe - sometimes that connection is just so strong that they do come back to us in another little body.
