Hello,

I am registered since 6 weeks but till this day I hadn't have the heart to say meow, because my English is absolutely bad :oops:. But I hope it is nevertheless o.k., that I introduce myself and my cats. And please, don't laugh about me :cry: .

I am Simone from Germany, 36 years old and the "Can-Opener" (??) of four cats: Simba (3 years), Gizmo and Gypsi (2 years) and Grisu (1,5 year). And if you like you can see pictures of them on my homepage...

I agree with Zalensia, joining a forum like this is great for learning the language. And if you want, you can always ask these fine people to help you to correct your english if you need. I had lots of help from people when I first got on the Internet. Now I think people understand me better, even if I sometimes make up my own words, use grammar in very creative ways etc, people do understand what I want. And I did understand your "meow" perfectly!

Welcome, Willkommen and Välkommen to this Forum! :)

Hi,

thanks a lot for the friendly wellcome :D. I will try to improve my english with your help :D . The first time I will make short sentences - thats easier during the period of learning ...

And for all who don't want to visit my homepage: here some photos of my cats (@Kitkat: you are right: Twinkie looks like a brother of Gizmo :D ):

Simba: our only cat who is allowed to go out - in German it is "Freigänger" - don't know the english word:


Gizmo (Maine-Coon)


Gypsi (sister of Gizmo)


Grisu (Russian-Chartreux-Mix - we found him last year in an animal shelter)


And that is Merlin. He will be our No. 5 and we will take him at the 24 of July. He is a Bengal-Cat:


And to make it complete I want to show you my angels also:

Bazi, he went to the Rainbowbridge last year in August. I lost him because of the Feline Leukemia Virus. He was 3 years old when he died. In my heart he will never be forgotten. He will ever be the "cat of my heart":



And thats Mogli. He went to the Rainbowbridge in November 2002. We had just a few days together. He was 6 months as a I lost him because of the Feline Immunodeficiency Virus.



I look forward to share the stories of your and my cats with you :D

For the moment I wish you: sleep nice :wink:. In America it now will be in the middle of the night :wink: .

Hello!

Hi!

Your kitties are so pretty, and I am having NO trouble with your english!

I wouldn't mind learning some German, because in fact, my grandparents are from Germany (they left because of the Holocaust), and so I am half German on my mother's side. My grandmother is always telling my mom that my sister and I should have learned the language, but we never did.

In German its a usual word for the "cat-slaves" :lol: . And I think mostly its apposite 8) .

The brother of my grandma left also Germany. Sadly he died in last year. But his daughter lives in Texas (in a district). She is speaking German very well (every 4 years she visit us in Germany), but her kids (she has two daughters and now only one son - the other died years ago - he was jumping from the Empire State Building :cry:) don't speak German.

And at last I want to present my little bengal :D in his new home :D:
