Hello from Michigan

post #1 of 14
Thread Starter 
Hi I just wanted to introduce myself, I'm Nikki. I currently have 4 cats and one dog. Let me tell you a little about them! I enjoy talking about them before me!

Nitosha is female, 16.5 years old with CRF. She is my first kitty and the love of my life. She was a sister to Napoleon of 14 years before he passed in 2003 due to complications with diabetes. Thanks to her and her CRF i have found this site with the help of others who are registered to CRFsupport site through Yahoo.
Boston is male and will be 2 years old Sept. 15, he found me several months after Napoleon passed. He is full of energy and Nitosha HATED him when I brought him home, I think due to the major age difference. He wanted to play and Nitosha wanted to sleep. Then the decision was to get a third cat so Boston has someone to play with.
Tar, male, just over 2 years old. He is Boston's playmate. We rescued him, or shall I say rescued Nitosha. Several cats were brought to our house one day so we could find the perfect match for Boston. When Tar was brought out of his carrier he jumped up on the couch and curled up into a ball. He was ours ever since.
Keeger, is the newest addition to our cat family. My fiancee found him on the job site and I drove out there to him. He was "dropped" off, not wanted for some reason. I just wanted to take him the the vet because his claw was imbedded into a paw pad and infections in his ears. I called 27 NO-KILL shelters and they are all filled up. So has been ours since July 1. He is not getting along well with all the others. I really believe he should have a home where he is the only cat. I am praying he'll turn around!! His pur sounds just like a lion cub, very vocal.
The odd ball is Cora, or dog who we came acroos due to taking Keeger to the vet. The family was going to take her and her brother to be put to sleep due to an immediate death in the family. A vet tech at my vets office said no way. We took her for a "trial" and she has been with us ever since july 5th. She is a caracter at 14 months. She is bigger the the cats, a border collie mix but submissive to the cats. She grew up with a cat.
Yep I have a small zoo but me and my fiancee wouldn't have it any other way!!!

Me, I'll be 35 tomorrow and hopefully will be the wife to a wonderful man next summer. My hobbies are my pets ( even thought are are part of my family), swimming in our pool, softball, fixing up the house we bought last Sept.
I like to do research about cats and now dogs so I can give them the best care. I like to feed, care for my animals the more "natural" way if I can. All my friend and relatives call me first about their cats since they think I know a heck of a lot.
Well, that's enough. I am sure I'll have 'conversations' with many of you later.
Thanks
Nikki

Nikki...welcome...no kills do get full because they are limited admissions. They can only take on additional cats when some are adopted. My suggestion would be to contact them again, offer to foster the cat so the rescue doesn't have to find space for it, bring him UTD on shots and have him neutered, explain to the rescue that you are willing to let them charge their normal fee (a win for the rescue) without having to pay for any of the vet work, as long as they help you place this cat. See if that works.

Even if none respond...you should still have him neutered.
