Hello from Luds & Stephanie

post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hi there, my name is Luds and I'm going to be posting and using this account with my girlfriend Stephanie.

We are both 25 and have a little kitty named Tendresse (French for tenderness) She is about 9 months old. She is very lenghty and is now about 12 pounds!

Tendresse is my third cat. As a kid, I had a kat with my parents & sisters named Caresse. She was very soft and loving. Then about 5 years later my older sister's boyfriend bought her a cat, Muffin, and the house exploded! It took about 3 years for Caresse to accept that Muffin also lived under the same roof! 8 years later, they still coexist.

Anyways, the reason I'm here os to talk about my cat Tendresse. We've been having some difficulties with her as she is getting a bit too aggressive. I've started to read some posts the issue and figured I'd join.

Here are a few pictures of Tendresse:

April 2nd 2004! We bought a cat! Tendresse was about 2-3 weeks old!
Tendresse in Stephanie's arms (first day)
Tendresse's first toy (first day)
Tendresse on her scratching post (~5 weeks old)
Tendresse on post again (~ 6 weeks old)
Tendresse watching the F-1 Race on TV! (~3 months old)
Tendresse watching F-1 race again (same time)
Tendresse in her new bed? (~ 4 months old)
Playing in a grocery bag is so fun! (~ 6 months old)
Laundry day is fun! (~7 months old)

Hope you enjoy the pictures!

Welcome to the site! Tendresse is just gorgeous!!

Probably the best thing for getting ideas on how to deal with her aggressiveness would be to post your question in the Behavior forum.

Thanks for the welcome!

I already read most of the ideas on how to understand cat behaviour. We never had problems at home with teh other 2 cats when I was a kid, both of them were just plain quiet & soft fur balls!

I'll explain some of the problems on the other board. Thanks valanhb!

Glad you find Tendresse cute! She's our first baby

Hi Luds & Stephanie Welcome to TCS! Tendresse is verrrry pretty. I love her cute nose! I checked out this site for a while before joining, and was so impressed with the depth of care and compassion I saw....I'm sure you'll get some good tips and helpful hints! Check out my fur-kids in yesterday's thread : "Hi There" in New Cats on the Block. It's in there by mistake (oops!) I'm still learning!!! It's long but I guarantee, you'll know my "kids" pretty well after!

Chris I was thinking the same thing! Cooper is also VERY long and has the longest tail I've ever seen on a cat. Tendresse has a lot more black on her, but her hair looks kind of long and fine like Cooper's. I betcha Cooper would get a crush on her if he met her!

Welcome Luds, Stephanie, and Tendresse. She's just beautiful!

Thanks

We love her so much! It's Stephanie's first cat so she's very special to her as well!

It's our first cat together, but my 3rd as I had 2 cats at my parents.

Cat people rule!
