Another Newbie

Hi everyone!

I came across the forum while searching for some info. From what little bit I've seen, this seems like a great place for information and to talk with fellow cat lovers. I'm looking forward to getting to know the folks here.

My real name is Emily and I live in the Washington DC area. I have two cats, Buddy and Sassy, which I adopted after my 22 year old Pokey died last year.

I'm 28 and had Pokey most of my life and was only personally responsibly for him when he was an "old man". I dealt with arthrtis, diebetes and CRF for the past 5 years of his life and now that I have two young'uns, I sometimes have some questions.

About my cats: Buddy is almost two and playful and affectionate as all get out. He was born in a high kill shelter and saved by the rescue group I adopted him from. During his time in the shelter, he contracted an eye infection and lost his right eye to it. It doesn't seem to bother him in the least, though. And he is healthy and happy these days.

Sassy was a formal feral cat. She kept wondering into a grocery store before the rescue agency caught her. She is approximately just over two years old. She spent some time in a foster home with a woman who was used to working with ferals. Buddy was her foster brother and when I meet him, I fell in love with her, too. I learned a lot from her foster mommy about how to approach her and love working with her. She gets more and more loving and trusting everyday, with some help from Buddy.

Looking forward to getting to know everyone!
