New to the forum and new cat owner

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hi All, I just joined TCS yesterday. This is my first time for owning felines as my family members were not fans of cats, so we had dogs instead. I wanted a cat so since I've been living on my own with my boyfriend for a couple of years now, we decided to go ahead and get a kitten. Well after some research and opinions from others, we decided to get two kittens so that we would not have one lonely kitten at home while we're at work.

We've had Jasmine and Sammy (siblings) for 3 weeks now, and they just turned 3 months old yesterday. Their mama was himalayan, and we do not know about the father other than that he is black. We are enjoying them every day and we've learned that to own kittens, you have to think like a kitten in terms of kitty-proofing, haha.

My boyfriend has grown up with cats, but like I said, I'm raising my first kittens so any advice that all of you new and veteran cat owners.

Looking forward to many cat discussions with you all.

Hi and welcome to TCS! You'll have a great time here we're all cat (and other animal) nuts!

Great idea to get two kitties - they will certainly give each other (and you) HOURS of entertainment, and there has been a lot of research to suggest that two kitties are generally much happier and healthier, and live longer, than one alone.

You will learn a lot, and very quickly, from them - and if you ever need any advice on anything there are heaps and heaps of people here who are very knowledgeable who will be able to help you with whatever you need.

Hopefully you'll be able to post some pics of your babies for us all to get a look at!

Have fun - look forward to hearing more from you and Jasmine and Sammy.

Thank you! I am excited and I will definitely be posting pictures of my babies. I am a very proud mom. I'm so in love with these kittens. My boyfriend's mom told me that once you own a cat, you will want to own one for the rest of your life. I'm very thankful for my digital camera, it has gotten a lot of use in the last 3 weeks with my kittens. I take pictures almost every day.....they're growing so fast that I'll need these to remember the days when they weighed two pounds! Jasmine is sitting on my lap as I type.

That is certainly true - I started with one and now have five!!

There is a great quote from Ernest Hemingway - `One cat just leads to another...'

So true, so true...

It looks like you may have fallen into the great cat-trap - once a victim you will never be free!!
