hi my screen name is justy, i know this site is for cats, but justy is my 17 yr. old dogs name. i am a vet tech, in pennsylvania, and my first cat was a maine coon. he died tragically , a friend had come to my house late at night, and unfortunately, 'cuz the cat was black, my friend accidently let him out. this cat seriously had 9 lives, he was a very abused cat when i took him in. he had been an outdoor cat before, and hit by a car several times. i didn't ever let him out, just 'cuz he thought he was invincable!! so when he got out, i found him in a cornfield, and he would let me get about 2 feet away from him, and then he would run. like i said, unfortunately, he got hit by a car and was killed. so then i called the spca, and asked if they ever got maine coons in there, (i love the breed), and they said on occasionally. in the meantime, my neighbor had a siamese kitten she couldn't keep ('cuz she had too many cats), so i took her and named her iceis. then about a week later, the spca called me and said they had a maine coon, and that he was sick. they asked me if i wanted him, with the possibilaty they may put him down if no one adopted him 'cuz he was so sick. so i got him (his name is whiskers) and the first place he went was to my vet. he had urinary crystals, and had to spend a couple of days in the clinic, then i could take him home with meds. he is now 12 yrs. old and doing great. i got him when he was 1 yr. gotta go for now, talk to ya all later!!

Welcome to TCS

what a wonderful story about Whiskers bless you for taking him in and giving him the life he so deserves

I am sorry to hear about your first kitty - I am sure my cat Tipsy thinks he is invincible as well!! maybe you could post a tribute to him in our rainbow bridge forum so that we can all honour him

welcome again - i hope you enjoy it here
