Hey everyone, my name is Jade and im a kitty-holic (*hi jade*). lol, im just playing, but i am seriously a kitty holic. I have three.

Parrot was my first kitty, she's about 3.5 years old. The vet say's she siamese and something else. She's almost pure white except for her paws, tail, and face, where she has grey stripes. She's a one person kind of cat, and hates every person that she's ever met, minus me, heh. No, im serious, we took her to the vet when she was starting to love on my husband. Turns out that we were right, she was really sick.

Cow was my second kitty. He's about 3 years old, and we got him from the SPCA. He is the polar oposite of Parrot, in that he loves every person that he's ever met. His favorite person on the planet is my 2 year old daughter, who loves to give the kitty hugs and kisses, and boy does he love to recieve them. I've yet to meet a better behaved cat. I've had him since he was about 4 weeks old, as he was tossed out of the window of a car in a paper sack with his sister on the interstate who was adopted to another family. He's a brown tabby, with black stripes and white paws and white muzzle.

Monkey is my third kitty. He's a big giant orange tabby with an eating disorder. Now when you think eating disorder you think not being able to eat, right? Well, not this eating disorder. He can't stop himself. I have to shut him in the bathroom for about 30 minutes, twice a day, while i let the other two eat during feeding time, or he will basically tackle them and steal their food. Let me put it this way, when i first got him, i had an auto feeder that the other two used. The second night we had him, we woke up in the morning to find poor monkey asleep with his head in the food dish, and about 1/3 of the food that should have lasted weeks, gone. I wasn't sure what to do, thinking it was just because he was a kitten, but he got up to almost 30 lbs, and eventually we had to put him on a special diet. Now he's around 22lbs, and consistantly loosing weight. He's a very sweet boy, but a little bit on the not so bright side.

And yes, i know that all of my cats are named after other animals. Parrot used to ride around on my shoulder and meow like she was talking. I called her my modern day parrot, and from there on the naming disease spread. Monkey, when he was younger, looked like a spider monkey because his tail was almost double the lenth of his body, and cow, when he was younger, had spots that reminded us of a cow, and eventually evened out to be a beautiful coat, and now he we call him cowboy.

Ok, now that i have rambled on long enough, I hope to make lots of kitty friends around these parts! Take care!

Hi Ashley, welcome to the site!
I enjoyed reading your introductions and seeing their pictures

Parrot sounds a lot like Dori was when she was younger. She only wanted to be around me, in fact I was the only one who could feed her. If my fiance put her food down she wouldn't touch it

It is terrible what happened to Cow as a kitten Thank goodness you adopted him and he has a wonderful family now

Poor Monkey falling asleep in the food dish. I know how hard it can be to help a cat lose weight, you are to be commended for working so well with him

If I can help you in any way finding your way around the site please let me know!

Thank you so much for the warm welcome's everyone! Yes, cow is a doll baby. So much personality, in such a little body. I didn't think it was possible. I felt so bad for him when i got him. He was skin and bones, and had worms and cocidicia (sp?). His worms were REALLY bad. He was covered in fleas, and didn't even want to get ot of bed. I wasn't planning on getting another cat as i was only there to volunteer, but when i saw him I fell in love. His poor little white face was flecked in black, and his eyes were all goopy. I took him to the vet the next day, and we had to give him eye drops, some yellow paste, and de worm him for 2 days, then wait a while, and do it again to kill of any worms that might have been born after i wormed him. But to make sure the worms stayed gone, i had to get rid of all the flee's asap, which was the hard part. The vet helped with this. They gave him a medicated bath, and gave us some advantage. The vet i went to was wonderful. They did the whole apointment for free, i just had to buy the medication. They even did the fecal tests and bloodwork for free, they felt so bad for him. I wish I had taken pictures when i first got him to show everyone, but i never thought of it. I did take some a couple weeks later, to show my mom how small he was.

This was him at about 3 months old.

hehe, ok, i'll stop rambling. Thanks again for the warm welcome!
