Hullo Deni, Rowland, and Macavity!
Glad to meet you all and lol-ing over your descriptions...can't wait to see pix! and get some of us up on site as well. Live out in the desert with 9 rescued, indoor-only, spayed/neutered adult SPOILED cats, 4 hens, and all kinds of desert wildlife who either live on or visit our land here. An additional 12 of "my" beloved cats are in sanctuary due to my impending divorce and forced relocation to an urban location with stupid quotas...The furballs run the gamut from 16+-year-old, marmalade tabby DSH Nicolas T. Cat, to 2-year-old tuxedo DSH Baby Su (a/k/a Suha the Terrible or The Bitemouth Kitten). Tiger tabbies, tuxedos, ebony satins, snowshoes, silver tabs, Birman types, marmalade tabbies, torties, calicos -- they are all represented!
Was born into a household with a cat already in residence, and have loved cats all my life. They are the lights of my life! This is a great forum and it's wonderful meeting fellow cat fanatics from all over the world. Oh, and speaking of Eliot, a high point of my life was taking my mom, who's been gone for four years now, to see "CATS" one year for her birthday. We loved it!
