Aussie Newbie

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
Hi, I joined a couple of days ago just to ask a specific question, but now that I'm here I might as well hang around for a while. This whole forum thing is new to me, so bear with me.
There are 2 cats in our little family: 17 month old Balinese, B'Elanna (aka Banana), who's technically mine, and 18 month old Chinchilla, Zephyr (aka Chicken) who's my husband's. Originally I had planned for my cat to be called Zephyr, but I changed my mind when I could only get a female after waiting for 8 months, so my husband pinched the name and gave it to a cat that virtually has to grunt to haul himself off the floor. Light as air, I think not.
We got the cats to help us through a difficult time when we were having trouble starting a family, and now we find ourselves in the position of being due to have a baby in 5 weeks and with two very spoiled cats who don't know what's about to hit them. I'm sure they've noticed my shrinking lap space, though.
They're fantastic animals - I never thought I'd get such a kick out of having a cat that growls at strangers at the door (B'Elanna), or one that wakes us up at 3am desperate to show us the clothes peg he's just "killed" (Zephyr, the mighty hunter). Don't know what I'd do without them.

Welcome to TCS! So, there's to be an addition to the litter!! Be prepared to receive lots of clothespegs, moths & any other game - I find that cats get this urge to provide for the new "kitten". One "problem" is that sometimes the more protective cats insist on standing guard, usu. by trying to lie next to the napping baby. I never allowed it, but my daughter allowed close contact with my grandson & his cats, dog & even my horses! My mom & I were mortified, but he's 9 yrs. now, and has a very stout immune system; he's had antibiotics only 4 or 5 times in his life! And he's a regular Dr. Doolittle! Please visit often & let us know about the blessed event & resulting adjustments! Take Care, Susan (& Icy,Cinders, JC & Joey)

Welcome to the site and congratulations on the upcoming addition to your family!

How funny that yours so exactly the same things as my two! My Trent, BIG kitty with a teeny little meow and growl, is our attack cat who growls at people from the window. And Ophelia is our mighty hunter who loves bringing us her stuffy toys and socks either at 3:00 in the morning (and yelling until we thank her for her lovely present!) or just leaves them for us on the bed for us to find later.
