Greetings fellow feline aficionados!
My name is Jason. I fell in love with our furry friends in the last year as a result of routinely taking care of my g/f's two, black DSHs; Addie and Apollo. Before meeting my lovely g/f and her beautiful little creatures I had always admired and enjoyed the company of cats, though I had never owned one growing up due to allergies of family members.
I don't think there was any single moment where I fell in love with these critters, rather, I think they grew on me in time. Their individuality, their desire for both love and privacy, their cleanliness, the hilarious and heart warming moments they provide; it was all revealed slowly...before I knew it I was head over heals for them lol.
So now, I think the time has come to start thinking about adopting my own little guy! That's why I'm here! I want to know everything I can possibly know, and be as prepared as humanly possible, mentally and physically, for when I bring my cutie home (I have every intention of adopting a rescue cat).
The research and the knowledge I've already acquired from reading these forums, visiting my local shelter and other sources has already enhanced my relationship with Addie and Apollo. I want my relationship with my own kitty to be that much more and I figure interacting with lots of experienced cat owners via this forum is a great way of doing just that.
Thanks so much!
