Hi all

post #1 of 10
Thread Starter 
I'm so very happy to have found you! What a friendly and knowledgeable group of wonderful cat lovers!

Well, let's see.... I'm an old, broken-down retired (and tired) police officer, who now lives on the banks of the Willamette River in beautiful Oregon. I'm happily owned by five cat-daughters and one wife, Gloria.

Our sweety cats are all rescues. Jenny, Annie, and Doña were next to be put down (as kittens) in an overcrowded "shelter." We wanted three little ones after our two sweethearts, Katie and Mittens, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge almost together. We knew the shelter was killing kittens so we simply asked to adopt the next three on the list. We didn't care what they looked like because all cats are VIFPs (very important fur-purrsons). That was eight years ago. They are wonderful, loving daughters.

The other two, Sara and Emily, were abandoned near our house. (Emily was actually seen being tossed out of a passing car!) They all stay indoors. They love each other and have made our little home one of peace and great joy.

This is getting long, so I'll stop now. I'm so excited about being a member of this site and these forums. Thanks for being there.
