New to Cats - New to the Forum!

post #1 of 22
Thread Starter 

hello fellow feline fans, as the heading notes i'm new to cats and new to the board (in the sense that i finally signed up - but i've been browsing it for a couple months). here's the breif story of how i came to be an admitted cat lover...

my wife always had cats growing up. i never had any animals and was (taught to be) strongly opposed. after 4 years of gentle coaxing and exposure to her parents cats when visiting my in-laws, i finally gave-in to my inner fancy and surprised my wife in january with the announcement that i was ready for a cat. we ran around to local shelters and finally found the purrrfect little girl (ChumChum). she was born in the shelter and was 14 weeks when we got her. she has been an absolute doll since we brought her home and our relationship is mutually satisfying. i never imagined i would develop such an affinity for these furry beings but i found myself spending as much time as i could with her, buying her toys galore, built a 7ft cat tree, the best food, etc. i'm sure you know what i mean. because we both work during the day she was at home for 8-9 hours alone guessed it - we got another cat! on a bit of a whim, i went to the shelter and brought home an 8 month old gorgeous black medium haired male (Luciano). i followed advice i gleaned from this site re: introducing Luciano to ChumChum and they reside together happily now. so there you have it, i went from a rigid "no animal" policy to having two cats share my bed. truly, they are remarkable creatures!!!

[note: i tried to attach pics but haven't figured that out yet]
EDIT: i've now linked up to some pics i stored on photobucket. hope you enjoy!

Welcome to the site, and to the world of adoring cats! Glad to hear there's another convert in our midst.

If you look at the top of this forum, there's a thread called "How to Post Pictures" that should help you with remote linking pics of your kitties.

Isn't it amazing how quickly they wrap you around their little paws. My husband wasn't a cat lover until he saw me with my two kids. He just had to get his own. Inca has been his baby ever since. Welcome to the site and the wonderful world of felines. It never gets dull.

Welcome to TCS, and the cat world.

Yes, cats will do that to you, and there is no way to escape.

I'm thrilled you have found a furbaby, and then a friend for your furbaby! I'm so glad you have found happiness with them, and your bed.

If you have any questions, PM me, and I can give you just about any advice.
