So I am a new addition to catforum. To tell you about myself, I'm a teenage cat lady who's been training through multitudes of cat nursery books since day one. But it has only been recent that I have had the opportunity to own a cat. My very first is my kitten Theodore, a steel gray longhair cat who has black markings all over his body that imitate stripes to me. I'd wanted an orange cat to name Richard Parker, a tiger, after my favorite book, but the name hardly suits him; he's a skittish little boy who runs from his own reflection.
Anyways, I will be here to ask around for his sake and how to get on with his shy behavior and people-phobic tendencies, as well as other general new mama questions. So yes, it will be nice to meet you all c:
