Well I have been reading the board for several months. I haven't joined until now because I didn't have a pet yet to share with everyone. Now I do !!!!! Tomorrow I am going to the shelter and adopting a 2 year old female cat. My last cat died almost a year ago at the age of 15 and now it is time for a new cat. Her name at the shelter is Mittens but that isn't very original for a cat so I am thinking of either naming her Sydney Bristow and calling her Syd for short or Murphy after Murphy Brown. What do you guys think ? Well I am at work so I should really go but just wanted to stop in and say hello and I am looking forward to sharing with all of you :)
Thank You Wendy. I am sorry for not asking this first but is it okay to post about cats on this forum ? I see the majority of people only talk about their dogs. I dont want to break any rules the first day I join. I hope it is okay as I am very excited.:)
Thanks for the warm welcome everyone. I am glad I can post about my new cat. I am so excited about getting her. I am a 33 year old girl. I live alone in a condo. I have a girlfriend who is allergic to dogs so that is why I am getting a cat instead. I hope that doesn't offend anyone that I am a lesbian. I noticed that the majority of you are married. I just wanted to let you know since you may see me refer to my girlfriend here and there and I don't want you to be confused.
Wendy - I like the name Murphy also and I think that will be her new name :)
Thanks everyone. I am not usually this forward but after being a member of another Furum and getting the cold shoulder after this came out I wanted you all to know first before I become happy here and then I am ostracized. Where on this site do you post pictures ? Well I have to leave to catch the ferry home from work now. Wish me luck with my new kitty tomorrow and I will see you all on Monday.
DoGoneIT your dogs are so cute! i really liked the story that went along with nikko. i'd never been to the site dogster, and it was so cute your dogs have little dog friends! (sorry if this was off topic) ghetto i'm a new member too...plus i don't have a pet, but i want one, and that counts right? welcome to the forum, i wonder if they have any sites for cats like the dogster one i saw... -tanya
Welcome to the forum ghetto! I am a 13 year old girl, and a BIG dog lover. I like horses and cats too, and have a cat named Smokey. Did I mention I'm also really obsessed with wolves and drawing pets? My dog is Shadow, and she's a sweet little girl. Welcome to the forum! Oh and don't worry. Doesn't bother me at all your a lesbian, and I don't think anyone has any reason to be bothered by it. =)
