Hi, I'm Patty, and I decided to join after receiving my new kitten. This is my second time owning a cat. My previous darling, Ariel, had been my baby since I was 5 years old. She passed away when I left to college, so I was put off from owning cats for a while. Now I'm starting my senior year, and I find myself with this little treasure named Ziltoid (the Omniscient... hehe). No pictures yet, but I will have to find a camera and fill my 160 gig hard drive full of pictures of him.

So, this is a big howdy from a poultry science nerd and her favorite alien kitty, Ziltoid the Omniscient.

( Sidenote: "Ziltoid the Omniscient" is the name of an album about a coffee loving alien who seeks to take over the planet Earth. It seemed fitting... )

I should amend that Ariel wasn't the only cat I've ever owned. Mom and I use to pick up the abandoned cats that people dumped off around our property and give them homes. This includes a beautiful orange tabby that had been burned with some sort of chemical on purpose.
This is one of the sad truths about living in the country. People tend to throw off of their unwanted litters or pets out here. Ugh.

I was just looking at my Persi file yesterday on my hard drive and it contains 2 gig of pictures, 700 photos. So, if you achieve your goal, you could have 56,000 photos or so, depending on the compression method if any, you use. That would be quite the accomplishment! I have had Persi just a little under a year so 700 photos translates to about two pictures a day. Cats are just so much fun to take pictures of!
Good luck with filling your hard drive; you will have a lot of fun doing so.

Thank you everyone! Ziltoid and I appreciate the warm welcome.

I'm still looking into swiping someone's camera. His markings are so interesting (and hopefully not something he'll grow out of). He's cream colored with white stripes down his back.
