Red face Hi guys! Newbie from Poland :)

Hello everyone,
I've just recently stumbled upon this forum and am overjoyed and excited to be a part of it. I think that the advice and support here will help me and my cat get along . I don't have a cat yet, but me and my boyfirend will take one (or two? ) soon -in 1 or 2 weeks. At my boyfriend's parents' home they something like a barn and a wild cat gave birth there. Since then I'm in love with these 5 darlings. I've been visiting them for quite some time now, since they were around 2-3 weeks. I've done my research and know what equipment to buy, which food is good and so on, but I'm so willing to learn more to provide the best I can for the kitty, that's why I'm here. One of them actually jumped on my lap when I was sitting nearby them and I just cried, it was so beautiful and cute.

One more thing - I'm not a native English speaker, so sorry for my mistakes! I don't know the vocabulary for the equipment and other things regarding cats, but I will try to learn it fast.

Thank you for reading!

Welcome!

How exciting for you! I can't wait to see pictures of the kitten(s) you decide to adopt.

I find it hard to believe English isn't your native language, your posts are great.

welcome!

like Marie said, your English is just fine -- much better than some who did learn English as their first language (ahem, texting teenagers)

Your english is great! I get texts from people my age (27) who are native english speakers that are just impossible to decipher

you seem really eager to learn so I'm sure your new baby cats will be very happy. I've always heard it said, "if you're worried you're going to be a bad (uninformed) parent then you obviously care enough to not be a bad parent" or something like that...(that was paraphrased)

you'll learn a lot here!!

Welcome to the forum! I'm actually 1/8 Polish myself but don't speak the language unfortunately. I plan to learn someday, though.

Hope to see you around and can't wait to see who you bring home!

Thank you for such a warm welcome! I have some clips of the kittens now that they're still with their mother (mother runs away when I come into the barn), but I think I will post them with the actual photos of the furkid I decide to take - in another thread.

Thank you bluemilk for taking your time and writting down some of the vocabulary. Like you said, just reading some of the threads and post is already learning for me - when I don't understand something, the dictionary is my friend .
