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 to...in 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.
