Hello! :)

Hi everybody!

Just found this forum and thought it would be a fun place to join! A little background.

I graduated college over a year ago, and have been thinking of adopting a cat for quite some time. I've been volunteering at shelters since I was 13, and grew up with cats, so I knew what to look for, etc.

Paid a visit to the local humane society today and adopted a 2 year old mix (unsure of the exact breed). This is my first cat on my own, so I am excited to see what the future holds for the two of us I'll post a pic as soon as I get one uploaded to my gallery!

See you around the forums!

Welcome Mainecoon!
A new cat, Yay!! You certainly aren't a stranger to cats, that's for sure!
Will definitely be looking for some pictures from you!!:p

Hi mainecoon14,
Welcome!
Hmm...any chance that your mixed kitty has some kind of 'coon in there? Just a guess, lol.

Well i sure hope you do stick around, especially in the fun forum and even help our "count to billion" thread...we seriously need all the help we can get, haha!

Also looking forward to your kitty pics, yay! :-D

Thanks for the warm welcome!

Here's one of the first pics I took of 'Fergus'* once we got home from the shelter. He spent about 20 minutes sniffing around the first level and then followed us upstairs for more exploring.

I wish I could have found another Maine Coon, but he seemed like such a great fit He's definitely part Bengal.




Looking forward to exploring more of the forums!

Oh, I thought perhaps your Fergus may have some Mainecoon because of your name! I guess that's a different story, then?

You've captured some excellent shots of Fergus, btw! He definitely looks to be investigating/prowling with grace and curiosity that felines do! And I really adore his sleepy face...such a look of a content cat!
