Hello Everyone! Finally joined your forum and just wanted to stop in a introduce myself and my cat, Piper.
First off for me! I'm a 28 yr old girl who lives in Canada, Saskatchewan. I love all animals and own several different kinds myself, I'm a vet technician and work alongside my local vet in clinic and house calls with animals of all sizes.
Now for my cat! Piper came to me as a stray a few years ago. I went out to do some yard work one day and there she was, she followed me around all day and that night I figured she would go back home as she had a collar on (no tags). It was late October and getting cold outside and that night it froze, the next morning I woke up and went outside and Piper crawled out from under a building stiff with cold and very hungry. I decided she wasn't going to go home and took her in, I looked for weeks for an owner with no one coming forward so she became my little girl I've attached a picture for you all to see
Welcome to the forum. Piper is one lucky cat to have chosen you. I'm Jenny and I have 7 cats and 1 dog. Like you I had a cat (Kali) turn up in my garden and because she had a flea collar on I assumed she had a home. When I discovered that she was sleeping on my garden wall every night I started to feed her. I had to cut her flea collar off as it was very tight as she was still growing and as I discovered a couple of weeks later, pregnant. Great that we have someone from Canada on the forum. I look forward to hearing more about you and your pets.
I'm Erika from Scotland, but I live in Berlin. I share my home with Mieze the cat and Rosa the dog. I have a terrapin, Stevie and another cat, Smudgie, who both stay with my parents as I didn't think it was fair to move them to Berlin.
tonib: Sounds like it was a good job we didn't have Roman as a kitten then. He's never misbehaved like that, only his first Xmas with us when he half-inched the stuffing! - I hope that's not famous last words!

tonib: Lexie is another matter but usually not breakables - except potentially of herself when she fell behind the large display cabinet/sideboard on being left alone for the 1st time in our dining room aged 2.5 years!!!

tonib: She jumped on top (via the table I believe) & managed to fall between it & the wall & appeared to be suspended by her head part way down (the gap narrowed!) I had to get a burly neighbour in to help move it, quickly moving weight/breakables as pos. 1st

tonib: She was fine but got checked by vet just in case! That was a heart stopping time, especially her cries!

lotsofcats: It won't be for long. When I had kittens I just used to sit and watch them for ages - are you doing that yet?

Gillykat: Oh yes......just drinking their adorable cuteness Been picking up and cuddling new boys too and they're starting to realise I'm a harmless idiot who gives them a treat every time I do so.
