First time cat daddy and I love it!
I came across this community and found some great advice and stories from cat lovers from everywhere. I've come to this site so often that it's part of my daily rotation for cat stuff.
A bit about me: I live in beautiful sunny San Diego with my wife and daughter. We recently adopted a very handsome domestic blue (my wife would say Chartreaux) from our local shelter and named him Lando.
After sharing the news with my co-workers who convinced me to get a cat, they convinced me even further to get a second cat. So back to the same shelter and got a gorgeous black shorthair that was a little underweight (she's at a normal weight now).
With 2 out of three of us having cats, it was only a matter of weeks before we got our third from a different shelter for our daughter. A very cute little blue/white shorthair that we named Luna.
I'm not sure if we're going to push the envelope with a fourth furry family member, but who knows what the future will bring. Life in the house has never been better, and I'm discovering day-by-day how much fun it is to have cats in the family.
My wife and I are researchers by heart, and having after establishing some very diverse aquariums, it was only natural for us to find resources to help us care for our cats. The kinds of foods, toys, beds, brushes, snacks, treats, etc. is a main topic during dinner. I find myself forwarding articles and sites for cat information to my wife and she does the same. Our date nights always have a little bit of time to visit the local pet store for new toys or deals on good food for our cats.
I hope that I get to share some great stuff here as I continue down this journey with our newest family members.
