Hi, Im new to the board!

post #1 of 17
Thread Starter 
Hey Everyone,

My name is Alaynna and I have come across this great website through another forum. I love to see a website and forum dedicated to cats!! I have grown up with cats all my life, there was never a time where I didn't have cats, and we usually had 3 at a time. I just got married a year ago, and moved into a brand new house at the beginning of this year. As soon as I moved out of my parent's house I got 2 cats, because I couldn't live without having cats in my life.

So let me tell you about my two kitties: Lemur and Monkey (I will tell you how they got there names in a second)

We first got Lemur at a pet store, she was only 7 weeks old and as cute as can be. We picked her because she was the kitten that would let us hold her for a while. We were only going to get one kitten at the time, but when we would leave for work Lemur would be sitting on the couch looking so lonely, and she would be sitting in the same spot when we would get home. So we decided to get another kitten so she would have a playmate.

We went back to the same store and saw Monkey!! She was 8 weeks old and also as cute as can be. As soon as we got home we knew that Monkey would be the playful one. She quickly adapted to Lemur and they have been together ever since.

They are both shorthair kitties. Lemur is a tiger striped and Monkey is grey with a little orange here and there. They are both 1 1/2 years old, and are midsize kitties. Both lemur and monkey are attached to me, but Lemur is the most. I could be sitting up stairs and only call her name once, and she will come running from wherever she is and jump up in my lap and sit there for hours. I also can say "kiss kiss" and she will kiss my nose and rub up against my head. Monkey will also come up and sit with me whenever i call her but I dont think I have ever seen her tongue out of her mouth...she doesn't like to I will have to get pictures to put on here soon so you can see them.

I look forward to posting in here and getting to know everyone.

oops....I forgot to tell you how they got their names:

Monkey looks like a monkey lol and i love monkeys, she will also climb anything and everything.

Lemur has big eyes and will stand up just like a lemur, and lemur is my nickname that my dad gave me because I had big eyes when I was born.
