Hi All! Recently switched sides...

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi all, I'm new. Was an avian owner for decades but recently came over to the feline side of things when my cockatiel Alex died after being with me for over 17 years.

I got adopted by a shelter kitten in August of 2005. She was 8 weeks old at the time, and was listed as a DSH. Well, those shelter folks don't seem to know much about kittens - turns out she is mostly Maine Coon and her tail fur is close to 6 inches long - so her tail swells out to close to a foot across at its puffiest! And that's with her relaxed and happy!

She is beautiful, of course (aren't all kitties?) as she is a torbie - tortie mixed with red tabby, so she has 5 colors rather than 4 and is completely striated with color where she isn't striped with orange and cream. She's mostly red, so I named her Ginger after having her home for most of a day. It seemed to fit!

I love her much, and was looking for a place where I can talk about her without making others sick!

Here's her very first baby picture - 8 weeks old, first night home...this is the face I fell for...

Grumpy girl getting used to her new mommy...

And a shot that shows her heritage - aren't her colors beee-yoooo-teee-ful?
