Hi, I'm new

My partner and I have just adopted Jimmy, a very handsome ginger and white longhair. He used to belong to our neighbour, but she became too frail to cope on her own and had to go into a home.

Poor Jimmy was very confused at first - he used to sit outside pawing at her door. But now he's accepted his new home, and he loves to play.
We said we'd never allow him on the bed - but guess what, he sleeps on our bed every night. I'm so thrilled to have Jimmy, as I haven't had a cat for nearly 20 years. It's great to have a little companion again.

I was delighted to find this forum - all those cat lovers and photos
I don't have the technology to post photos yet, as I'm writing from work.

Best wishes to all you cat lovers.
Seashell

I was glad to hear your story this morning! I am glad Jimmy will have a good home with you. How old is Jimmy?

Welcome to the forum and I look forward to see some pics soon. Miraculously one of my cats Twinkie was sleeping on my right arm last night, he never does this and I woke up thinking I was dreaming. Strange.... :)

Hello. Thanks for you replies, everyone.
Lilly - Jimmy is just over four years old. So he's really in the prime of life, and very lively!

seashell, Welcome to the site! You're not spoiling Jimmy. Cats are supposed to sleep with us. That provides lots of love and keeps us both warm! I'm so glad you took him in. It must be a terrible shock to animals when their people suddenly disappear. I'm glad he found a loving home!

Seashell, welcome to the forum. Cats are supposed to sleep with us :lol: On cold nights in my house, it is common to find as many as eight cats all sleeping on my bed covers. Also, if I awake in the middle of the night sometimes I am pinned down because of all the cats on my bed. They do keep me extra warm, anyway. 8)

Thank You, Jeanie

Hello Jeanie,
thank you very much for your warm welcome.
It is a good idea to post a new introduction of myself in 'Say Meow'.
Thanks for this hint.
Wow, its not such a long time I am here, but I think the people around in the catforum are very nice and friendly.
Best wishes,
Josef

Hello again

Just to say 'thanks' for all the nice replies.
Josef - I second that about everyone being friendly here.
Also, there's so much to see! Already I've learned some really useful stuff just by reading the threads.

Welcome to the Forum Seashell and Jimmy. Can't wait to hear your stories! + it must have been a great relief next to the shock for sweet old Jimmy to be accepted inside. It is wonderful of you to have offered him a home - with you and your partner as loving parents
