Hello, I'm new

Hi,

I'm new to the forum. I have two cats (and 12 rats!) and they are my pride and joy.

This is Milton- we've had him since he was a kitten-



and as a silly kitten-



And this is Tabitha, our rescue cat. We've had her for nearly a month now!


Her story: From what I know a couple bought her, her 2 sisters and brother in order to make a quick buck by breeding persian cats and trying to sell them for 400 a piece. Unfortunately, the couple didn't have the money to begin with and so neglected to feed the animals and when two of them became quite ill they couldn't afford the vet fees so decide to 'set them free' in a massive horse field. The cats might have had half a chance if they weren't ill, malnourished and if it hadn't been just as all the snow came in England.

The RSPCA found the cats when they came to rescue the couple's neglected horse. Unfortunately the male cat and a pregnant sister died within hours but the remaining two received vet treatment. The RSPCA contacted a lady at work who regularly fosters cats and asked if she would take them on as they didn't feel a shelter would be appropriate for them.

Naturally she took them on on a temporary basis. She knew I had experience looking after persian cats and that I was looking for another cat as a friend for my current one so asked if I'd be interested in rehoming one. I went to meet them, one had already been claimed by my friend's neighbours and then there was Tabitha. I couldn't not bring her home.

We're not quite sure if she's a cat or a psammead. The resemblance is uncanny

Tabitha








Once she's gained enough weight and returned to full health she will be getting spayed. She has a few bone abnormalities but the vet says there's nothing we can do about them, they only seem to cause her discomfort if she's picked up so we just have to let her come to us! She's the friendliest little thing and only seems to be happy when grooming me or my housemate. I've been woken up every morning at 5am for the last week by her licking my nose, begging me to put down some more food!

Anyway, sorry for the long post!

Welcome!
LOVE the tail on the cat in the sack! ...and poor Tabby, she had such a rough start and is so lucky to have found you. I would love to read her updates as she recovers.

Welcome to the CatForum! I agree with Heidi, continuing updates would we wonderful.
Milton and Tabitha are both adorable! Tabitha looks so comfortable in her red sweater.

Aww, Tabby is so lucky for you to have taken her in. Milton looks so warm and content in the sun.
