hello from another newbie

post #1 of 20
Thread Starter 

I have been a long-time lurker and I finally posted a few days ago on the "Caring for Strays/Ferals" forum. I thought I should formally introduce myself.
My husband and I have two one-and-a half year old cats, Itchy and Scratchy. Itchy is the female and she is my gal pal. She loves to snuggle. Scratchy is male and he is the trouble-maker. He picks on his sister and loves to play. He is also quite the acrobat and will flip 4 feet in the air when we play fetch!
We have been planning on taking home a new kitten on Sunday from a neighbor who has a litter of kittens. We are thinking of naming him "Rowdy."
We planned to stop at 3 cats but we just took in a feral kitten yesterday who is nameless at this point. I just can't come up with the right name for her!
I did not grow up with cats, but my husband did. My in-laws have any where from 7-10 cats at any given time. I started volunteering at an animal shelter about almost 2 years ago, and soon after we got Itchy and Scratchy.
Here are some pics:

Thanks for the warm welcome! I uploaded some of my favorite pics to photobucket as suggested.
Here are photos of Itchy (black) and Scratchy (orange/white tabby):

We bring home Rowdy tomorrow morning. Our feral kitten seems to be doing okay. Lots of excitement in our household!
