Hello! I joined this forum because of some concerns with one of my babies, but this was going to happen regardless because cats are my life. I'll give a little bit of backstory!
My first baby, Smokey, a Russian Blue who I raised since 1997, passed last year due to multiple tumors. I had to put her to sleep, and it was the most difficult decision I've had to make.
Smokey taught me more than anyone ever has, and I loved her more than I have loved anyone. It's still difficult, but I'm incredibly grateful to have had her in my life and to use the lessons she taught me about cats. Because of her, I love cats.
A few days after she passed, I went to Petsmart to simply just look at the kitties to cheer myself up, and ended up falling in love with two medium hair tabby kittens. Their names are Prescious and Chief, and they give me so much joy. They are 1 year old now. I'm doing my best to give them the most wonderful life possible.
I also have a greyhound and some reptiles.
I'm excited to be here with fellow cat lovers and learn what I can!
