post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hello everyone. I have been registered and reading this site for close to one month now but never introduced myself. Sooooo, here goes:
My name is Daniela and I live in Wareham, Massachusetts. I married and have two beautiful children, David (5) and Davina ( 21 months ). I have to admit, my husband is not a "cat person", he only agreed to get her because my son really wanted a kitty. But amazingly he seems to get along with Sunshine just fine so far. We bought Sunshine from a local pet store. They failed to reveal that she was expecting kittens!! Our first instinct was to return her, but I've already fallen in love with her, and my kids adore her! She is an all black long hair domestic w/ bright yellow eyes ( hence the name sunshine ). She is very docile and loving , although doens't seem to like being held too much. So far we have enjoyed having her in the family, although with her being pregnant I am not sure of her "true" personality. We have planned on spaying her as soon as possible after the kittens arrive. I don't want any more surprises, even though she is an indoor kitty.
I will be keeping everyone posted on her progress, I believe she is due in the next week sometime.
ps. I owned a Sealpoint a few years back who was the most loving cat I had ever seen. I thought I'd never find another kitty that was as easy going, but I think I have !!!

Welcome to the catsite Daniela! That must've been a real shocker finding out Sunshine is pregnant. Have you been trying to find homes for the kittens? I hope you do find homes. Pet stores are notorious for doing things like that. That's why our organization tells people if they are looking for a cat or dog, go to the local shelters.

I'm glad you introduced yourself. Hope to see you posting more!

Yes, it was quite a shocker. Its funny because about 6 years ago a friend of mine asked me if I could watch her cat while she was on vacation. Well, two days later the kitty had 2 kittens right on my living floor!! I was in utter shock to put it mildly. I ended up adopting one of the kittens. So it seems I have a calling for pregnant cats!!! As far as homes, yes I have several friends who want them.....I am sure they'll be very well cared for.
I would've gone to a shelter, except the only one in my area had no available kittys. I could've looked at others in different towns, but when I walked in this particular pet store and saw Sunshine I just fell for her immediately. She is so pretty, and she was so docile. I think I made a good choice, kittens and all!!!

Hope things go well with the new addition and her kitties. I had a cat when I was growing up and I always remember all the speical things they did. Sounds like your children are finding this to be true with Sunshine. I have attached a picture of my niece with her cat.

Thank you all for wonderful welcome posts!! Everyone here seems to be very friendly and sweet. I know I'll be posting frequently once the kittens arrive!
We go to the vet tomorrow to find out exactly when she is due. I really think it will be this week sometime. I'll be sure to announce when it does happen.
