Hi! First time cat owner looking for knowledge!

Hi everyone!

Four weeks ago I became the proud new owner of 2 beautiful cats! They are the sweet and adorable Heidi & Hercules
I adopted them from a rescue shelter who rescued them from a colony of 20+ cats, most of which had to be euthanized because they were diseased. They were owned by an old man who could no longer take care of them and called the rescue center himself because he knew he needed help with his pets.
When I got them they were malnourished and tiny, and while they will always be small cats, they are now getting to a healthy weight and in a home where we do our very best to keep them safe, loved and healthy!

As a first time cat owner I hope to find a lot of cat loving people here to share stories, tips and of course PICTURES! So let me start this train a-rollin' by posting pics of my cuties!
The small grey one is Heidi, the black/brown one is Hercules! Heidi is still the size of a 6/7 month old kitten even though she's already appr. a little over 1 year old, and Hercules is also a small cat and appr. a little less than 1 year old.

I hope to get to know all of you and your lovely little ones!

Greetings!

Lihea

Welcome to the forum - and they are very cute!

That picture of the one sitting on the floor looking up I particularly like.

I have a similar cat barrel for Abigail - though mine has 3 openings in it. Abigail likes to climb up the outside of it, on the side that is away from me - then she pokes her head around from time to time whilst clinging on!
