First off, I gotto say you guys have some interesting emoticons in this place.
Alright, so I'm Vala, and currently owned by 6 cats and 1 temp. When I say 'crazy cat lady', I mean it.
I've had cats pretty much my entire life, safe for 2 years and I literally went nuts. Then I volunteered in a shelter, brought home 3 kitties, started working at an animal hospital and brought home another 5 or 6, most of which I rehomed, but somehow, I ended up with 6 cats. Not what I had planned, but it works brilliantly..after much reading, restructuring and coaching.
Somewhere between the time that I got my 3d cat who promptly decided to pester my 1st, rather neurotic, kitty and the time that I got three kittens who were about to die from severe Feline Influenza at home, I started studying Cat Behavioral therapy, as my 1st cat was peeing on my bed and couch and I didn't wanna return her to the shelter.
After that, I was hooked. I sorted out my cat colony and went with my boss to classes and followed a Cat behavioral course for over two years to find out what makes our furry felines tick. And I learned how to appreciate them even more.
So, and now I'm here, as, I talk *wayyy* too much about cats for my friends to keep up. I figured it was time to harass some people who are as mad about the furry creatures as I am.
Consider yourself forewarned
