Hello from Reno, NV

Hello, I'm Shauna. I'm married to my bestie and we have 11 children - all of the furry (& feathered) variety. We also foster bottle baby kittens each year from about March through November. And we also foster human children, as well. I'm currently returning back to school to go into vet med so things get a little hectic for me at times!

Our house is never dull. We have 7 kitties, 3 dogs, & a parrot. We never imagined having cats in our lives since my husband is allergic but we started fostering the kittens and that was that. Now he keeps the Benedryl and eye drops close by at all times but he'd never change it.

I've found myself looking for info on this site more than once or twice so I thought it was time to just join!

Currently I'm dealing with a bully situation between three of my kitties. Two are ganging up on the one so I've just barely started trying Spirit Essences - Peacemaker in hopes of calming everyone down. Crossing my fingers!

Anyway, it seems like a nice forum and I look forward to getting to know everyone and exchanging ideas, advice, and knowledge.

This is a pic of four of my sweeties when they were little.

Oh they are beautiful! Is the top right one a longhair? He/she looks like it.

Hello from Reno, NV

Yeah. More medium hair length than anything. Her and her brother (the orange boy) were huge kitties from the day they were born. He now weighs in at around 16 pounds and she's approximately 14 pounds. The black one is their sister and she was the runt of the litter and was getting fed double bottles. She's one of my bullies now! The calico is one of my original two. She's the only feisty one of my bunch and never does anything with her claws retracted. I've got lots of scars from her but she's a total love and loves to snuggle under the blanket. She's also a wool sucker and will make huge wet spots on my clothes. I feel like all of them are my babies, probably because they are!

It makes me smile looking at their baby pics when they still have their baby fuzz; my orange boy especially, since he's so huge now! Ha.

That picture is incredible! Way way too cute. Welcome to the forum too.

I have a 16-pound orange boy myself! I've asked for opinions here on whether the orange boys tend to be big cats, and for the most part, people agreed.
