From what I can remember, it was in the lounge (NCOTB didn't exist yet) posting about how excited I was that I was going to be fostering orphaned and abandoned kittens. I'm sure I sounded like a right newbie but, as everyone has said, people were so welcoming and friendly.
I found TCS right after I rescued Georgia, now gone to the Bridge. I was so outraged that someone had thrown this tiny kit from a moving car, and was in a new town with no one to talk to. I was asking advice on how to find a home for her. NCTOB did not exist then. I remember hissy's thread entitled "someone flew a plane into the World Trade Center" right above my post.
