Hi Jeanie welcome to the forums! I saw you are also a nurse. Thats awesome! I just graduated and I am starting tomorrow night in Med-surg. I am very excited to start my nursing career. Talk to you soon,
Hi, Lori and Julie! Actually, I am a teacher, but I was raised in a family with lots of nurses! Does that count? It must be exciting to start your new career, Julie!
Lorie, I love black cats! Until now I have had black cats all of my life. Now I have two Siamese, a Seal point and a Blue Point. I also have a collie. My cats are Precious and Blueberry. Someone named my pup Beethoven before I got him. I wouldn't have copied a movie name, but Beethoven is one of my two favorite musicians. (Yep, I'm a classical musician.) I usually call him Pup Pup, but when I call him, it's Beethoven. Thanks for the kind welcome!
Thanks, catman. Now I just have to talk my kids into getting one for me! They are beautiful Siamese, one Sealpoint and one Bluepoint. (not my kids, my cats! ) What loving and intelligent cats they are! I might try getting my latest roll of film on a disk. I hear that works.
Welcome Jeanie! I came across this forum almost a month ago. It's a really great place full of helpful people that know what they are talking about. I'm sure you will enjoy it here and hope that you share a lot of stories. Even the moderators are great! I know with a lot of sites the moderators are too busy to help out much or get involved with the members but this place everyone coordinates as one large unit. Just the way a site should. I love it here and I hope you will too. So I welcome you with open arms and hope you enjoy your stay as much as all of us do. Have a great day.
Do you still have black cats Jeanie? I have two black cats myself. I do not really know how it happened, but I look around my house and we have a black dog and two black cats. Also one of my kittens is black and my boy cat is black and white. I told my husband we had to keep one of the calico and white kittens just for some variety! :lol: or maybe get an oarange cat from somewhere that would really add aomething! :wink:
Lilly, the reason I got the Siamese cats is because my last black cat, Nibs, was a Siamese in a black coat! In other words she had the loud voice and the distinct personality. When my son brought it home-it almost got chewed up in the neighbor's car engine, but my son heard it--I said, "Do you want to listen to that MEOW for the next 15 years? Well, needless to say, I fell in love with that MEOW and so missed her voice and personality that I bought two Siamese, and even bred Siamese for several years.
It's just a matter ot time, though, before another black kitten finds its way to my house. It must be marked, because someone is always wandering black kittens at my house. I can't resist them! I love my Siamese too. They're wonderful!
Siamese are a wonderful and pretty breed. I would love to have one myself. Unfortunetley my husband put his foot down NO MORE animals
I also would really love to have a spotted tabby bengal. That is my dream cat. Of course they cost more than I coould ever afford, so I will just stick to my inexpensive mutts (I do not think that is the right word to call a cat???)
I've recently moved to a beautiful remote farmhouse in the Scottish Borders and considering getting a pure bred Main Coon cat for company and was worried that a Main Coon being the size it is may attack and kills a sheep, especially lambs at lambing time, plus I'd appreciate advice on keeping...
