Hi there!
I actually lurked here several times, but I don't remember if I ever actually posted anything...it's been so long. I want a place that I can come to where people understand what it is to really love cats! I have 7 cats and a maybe cat at the moment. I will never have more than this at a time but it's actually pretty easy to take care of them and have fun with them the way I have things set up. Five of my cats are siblings who needed a home 5 years ago...their mother was a stray and lives with my mom now. The sixth we got a year ago June. He really found us because he was starving and needed help. I had thought he was going to the Humane Society but that didn't happen. My 7th was almost a whim, because of a litter of kittens that my mother found in an unsafe place. My 9 year old daughter desperately needed a kitten, of course. And lastly, the reason I say one is a maybe...we are in a trial with a lovely young kitten (5 months old or so....maybe 4-6) who is blind and needs a forever home. Her previous owner was going to euthanize her but the vet stopped her and asked if she would surrender her instead. I hope ours is the forever home she needs but she has to be accepted by my pride. It's been less than 24 hours and everyone is pretty ok with her presence except my one female, Ruby, and the kitten. I thought the kitten would take to her quickly but not yet. My main concern is Ruby, though. I think the kitten will come around. I'm giving it a couple weeks.

Looking forward to discussing all things cat with you!
Jen

Hello and welcome to TCS. :wave2: It sounds like you have a lovely feline family. :catlove:

I have a Ruby too, but she's an only cat, who I'm not sure if would welcome another cat into her domain or not. I hope your Ruby comes around and accepts the dear little kitten that desperately needs a loving home with you and your other cats. :catrub: Maybe something in this TCS article will be helpful: How To Introduce A Kitten To An Older Cat | TheCatSite

Also, have you heard of Homer the blind cat. He, like your kitten was going to be euthanized, but a vet suggested one of her cat parents trying giving him a home. She did, and he lived an amazing life, which was shared in the book: Homer's Odyssey

So Ava is the new blind kitten. She is making our entire family fall in love with her. I hope our other cats feel the same!

Thomas is cuddling with my 13 year old Boston. No other animal in my house cuddles with Ty. It's extremely sweet!

Welcome and it’s so wonderful you have a new kitty. Taking a blind kitty is super special and wonderful! All you family members are awesome! Two and four legged. I am so glad you brought Ava into the family. As someone who had a blind family member, you warmed my heart. Thank you! I hope you will enjoy being on the site and continue to let us know how Ava and the others are doing! :welcomesign:Love the photos!

Click on your username at the top right corner of your screen, then click Signature from the drop down menu and from there you can include a one line signature or if you want a banner with your cat photo on it, you may submit your request here :- make-signature-banner-requests-here.338415

Welcome to TCS! :welcomesign: I'm not only glad you joined the site but introduced us to your fabulous feline family. Ava is precious as are all your other beauties. So happy to hear you have a kind and compassionate vet who ask that Ava be surrendered by her previous owner as opposed to be PTS. You are an angel in every sense of the word.:angel:

I'll do a photo shoot and put it on the pictures board! I want to see everyone's cats, too! I'm really enjoying this board so far. I feel understood.😁
