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???)
Yesterday I purchased a 1 year old male Ragdoll from a woman who's job changed limiting her time home. Her loss was my gain! Diego is so beautiful and smart. I'm hoping to learn from you longtime Raggie parents.
We drove from FL to VA to get Diego. Two long car rides and a hotel stay until we...
I am hoping to be a cat owner soon. It will be my first kitten/cat. Forums like this are going to be essential to me. I want to be a responsible owner and give my cat a good life. It's nice to meet you all.
