I just joined in. I haven't been a cat lover all my life, I've always leaned more towards dogs. But about a year ago I got my long haired cat, Ares! My roommate got his sister, Athena! Ares is black, and Athena is grey. I decided on the name Ares because we got him around the 4th of July, we had some fireworks hidden. He some how got into them and got out a little firecracker and would just carry it around in his mouth. I figured the God of War, Ares, would be a good fit! Athena wasalways the brains behind the operation, so what better name for her than Athena! Anyway, thank you for letting me join! I'm stoked to call myself a cat lover now!
