Hello all,

I am pleased to be a part of your wonderful community. I am new not only to this site, but also to motherhood. My name is Susan and I currently live alone in a 1 bedroom apartment in San Francisco, CA. I moved here from New York 3 years ago. My family is all on the east coast.

While I love living alone, sometimes I would get lonely. I always thought of myself as a dog person, but as my apartment building only allows cats, I decided in January of this year to adopt a kitty. I had never had a cat before.

I did a lot of research on breeds and things like that and had my heart set on a "pretty cat", but in my desperation I agreed to adopt a certain cat from her foster mommy sight unseen. I was nervous when I went to pick up Madison (then called Crystal) hoping she would be cute and cuddly. Instead what I found was a scary looking furball who could only be described as mangy. I hesitated and wondered if she was a kitten or a gremlin (hehe I can say that now b/c I love her so much). I thought about going back on my word, but then I held her and she purred in my lap. She was the last of her litter, and I had a feeling others before me passed her over b/c she is "different".

Madison and I became fast friends, and now I think she is the most beautiful cat I have ever seen. I can't imagine my life without her. I feel blessed that she came into my life.

Now Willy... Willy became part of our household as a playmate for Madison. Leaving her alone every day when I went to work was doing a number on my heartstrings. Knowing Willy is there to keep her company (and he her) is such a comfort. They are fantastic friends and run and frolic all day long.

So that's my cat story. I just love my babies so much! They are the light of my life. I turn 30 in October and and taking a lot of ribbing for living alone, almost 30 with 2 cats. I tell those people that if I lived out my life this way, I would die a happy woman.

I have posted pictures in the Cat Photos section. Just search for my username susieb8020.

Nice to meet you all.
Susan

Welcome! I am new here as well, although not quite so new to being owned by cats ;-).

That is such a sweet story about Madison. She is quite the lucky gal to have been adopted by you!
