I'm talewi! I live in Oregon, and recently adopted my first kitten! Well, sort of first; I've had cats my entire life, although about half of them were just the strays that wandered into our backyard for food. But he's the first pet since I've been out on my own. Anyway, my new baby is named Toulouse (a la Aristocats fame). He's 9-10 weeks old and a regular spitfire. He's also incredibly spoiled. I came here because I've actually been lurking the forums for a while, searching out answers to my questions while I was in search of a kitty.
