Just introducing myself...owner of 2 kiddies

or is that kitties? Well, they are my kids.

I have two cats I adopted after they were rescued from a kill shelter. The eldest is Ozzie. He is about 5 1/2 years old. He is black and has long hair. He was born outside and was real wild at first. Now he is my "soul mate".

I adopted the 2nd one the day after Thanksgiving of 2010. They said she was about 5 1/2 to 6 months old at the time. Her name is Serafina. She is blue and white. That is what her adoption papers say but I would say it is kind of a slate blue/gray.

Serafina has medium to long hair.

I live in the NW suburbs of Chicago, divorced twice, and never though I'd be "one of those cat people". That is only because I wasn't familiar with cats. I've had plenty of dogs, a horse, cows, guinea pigs, rabbits, etc.

My brothers are highly allergic to cats, and my 1st ex didn't like them; which is why I never had one until I was in my mid 30's.

Hello to everyone here!

Welcome to the boards. Thank you for giving a good home to your cats. They were once on death row and now they're living it up, right?

We have a lot of people around here who really know a lot about cats. If you have any questions just post them and you'll get some good advice.

See you around!

Thank you, everyone, for your welcomes!

I'll have to read up on how to post photos of my cats. I tried to post an avatar but it wouldn't let me.

Ozzie's original name was Flash, which was a temporary one they gave him. I had a long list of names I was trying out on him and none of them fit it just right.

Then I was watching a White Sox game as they are my favorite baseball team. (konstargirl - I hope you're not a Cubs fan! ) My brother was at the game and had real good seats and I was trying to watch the game and see if I could see my brother and "Flash" got in the way. The last thing I saw was the Sox manager, Ozzie Guillen, in the dugout, so it just came out of my mouth: "Ozzie, move!" It stuck.

Not only that but it gave me a birth date. They figured he was born the latter part of Oct. of 2005 and since the White Sox won the World Series on 10/26/2005 at 11:01pm; I decided to give him that birth date.

Serafina was the name the little one was given and I loved it, so I kept it.

Hello konstargirl! Actually an organization called STAAR (Second Time Around Animal Rescue) got my cats from a kill shelter and put them up for adoption at a PetSmart. That is where I got both of my kitties.

I am SOOO sorry. I didn't mean to put "owner"....

in the title of my first post.

I have no idea what I was thinking. I correct others when they use that type of terminology. I meant to say "Mother".

Anyhow, I posted something here a while ago and don't see it so I'll try again.

I'll have to read up on how to post photos of my cats. I tried to post an avatar but it wouldn't let me. It kept asking for a URL. I want to upload photos from my computer's hard drive, not from a site. Same thing with the signature. What am I missing?

Ozzie's original name was Flash, which was a temporary one they gave him. I had a long list of names I was trying out on him and none of them fit him just right.

Geez......I messed up again. I swear I didn't see my posts there before. Now that I just posted this (am I am adding this on, it shows up. Sorry!!!!!)
