Hello From Holland

post #1 of 15
Thread Starter 
Hi, everyone--

I am a 43 yo nurse from Holland, who has been a cat lover all my life. I don't know how many I have had, but the longest I have been without one was 4 years--that was four years ago, when my cat, Emma, died after 16 years.

I just got 2 little kittens (7 weeks) named Ella and Louis after Ella Fitzgerald and Louis Armstrong. Ella is a calico and Louis is a ginger cat; both are short haired.

They were so scared when they first got home here that they crawled under the oven and refused to come out. But after I fetched them and brought them on our bed, they have been really comfortable and happy.

Anyway, I'm really happy to have found this forum. It's been so many years since I have had a kitten in the house that I had forgotten a lot of basic stuff. Reading the various threads here has been a great help and reassurance.

I look forward to meeting all of you and exchanging stories about our little feline babies.

Thanks for the warm welcome, everyone. I'm really ahppy to have found this forum, and I can tell already I will be needing it. Kittens are a totally different animal than adult cats!!!!! They wake you up to play at night, the pee where they are not supposed short, they are labor intensive ....and my partner and I are not as young as we used to be.

Ella and Louis will now be getting their very own bedroom to sleep in for a while, with all the necessary conveniences. I don't know if they will like it as much as sleeping in the bed with my partner and me, but I know I will sleep longer and wake up to a dry bed.

Anyway, nice to meet you all, and dawnofsierra, I sent you a PM.

Hi and Welcome. I have a "soft spot" for the Dutch since I married one. That's him in my signature. I'm sure you will enjoy your time here. Great people and lots of good advice when you need it.
