I'm a 2nd year vet student who just adopted her first cat ever! I was told she's a Russian blue mix, she's got the most beautiful grey coat and the biggest green eyes! I adopted her from a nearby shelter. She is 5 months old now, but was found at around 4 weeks of age. She had an injured paw that was full of maggots. They were able to save most of her leg and paw, they only had to remove 1 toe. I fell in love with her as soon as I walked into the shelter. she came right up to the cage purring and grooming me. She wouldn't let me leave her cage. I had actually gone to the shelter to look at a 10week old Russian blue kitten but this girl won me over. She doesn't leave my side now. She is a purring machine.
I thought I would join this group since I know most of the veterinary stuff or at least, I'm learning it. But I've never been owned by a cat so I am definitely going to need some help.
Welcome sunshine9 and Mistletoe (it is your baby's name, right). You have such a sweet introductory story! I cannot but congratulate you and look forward to seeing pictures and hearing stories.
It looks like you and Mistletoe are meant to be together for an eternity
