Hello, cat forum!
My name is Avi and my kitty is Ophelia. Our paths came together my senior year of college (last year) when I decided I was ready for a cat of my own--all of my pets previously had been family pets before I left for college, but by then, I felt "grown up" enough to adopt. She came to Washington DC when a shelter here pulled her from a high-kill shelter in West Virginia, which in turn had gotten her when she'd been found living in an abandoned house, probably left there when her family moved away. When we met at her foster home, she came right up to me and started weaving around my legs--and she hasn't stopped since. She's sweet, talkative, curious, and cute as ****. The reason I came to this board is because I want to talk to other cat lovers about how to give her the happiest, healthiest, best life I can.
