Hello, as the title suggests I'm a first time cat dad. I adopted two kittens this week and am already head over heels in love with being a cat owner.

This is Beans, he's nine weeks old and like this picure suggests, he's an absolute ham. Loves attention and playing and is a motor boat in cat form. He's constantly purring and has already made the house his kingdom. (Just wait until he sees the cat tree I've ordered for him and his sister.)

And this is Sasha. She's ten months old and was Beans' roommate at the shelter. She was there for several months because no one was willing to take a chance on her as she's not the most outgoing cat. She's a very shy and nervous girl and has yet to exit the closet she's made her home, but she's slowly opening up. Got her to purr a bit and play with some toys today, and she's eating and drinking as normal, so taking it one day at a time with her and allowing her to open up at her own pace. I can already tell it's going to be worth it.

Heart is melting. You can tell Sascha WANTS to open up, just something from her past needs healing. I’ve been a cat owner literally since just before I could crawl and I can tell you one thing nervous cats love is conversation. Just that. And a lot of it. They hear in your voice where your heart is…that plus the little bugger crawling all over her ought to do the trick. Maybe a house plant. Sascha wants to tell you her story, then some day crawl into your lap, too. Time is your best friend, time and patience….enjoy!!!!

Beans is a total cutie pie. :dancingblackcat:
And Sasha is beautiful. Thanks for adopting her too. :lovecat:
I'm sure in time Beans will help bring Sasha out of her shell, and they'll be besties, and you'll all be a happy family. :catlove::petcat::redheartpump:

:welcomesign:to you and your gorgeous girl Sasha and your handsome house panther Beans. They are just too cute. I'm sure once Sasha has settled in she will be causing trouble with Beans before you know it. :hearthrob::redheartpump:

Welcome. I’m a new cat grandpa since our daughter got one. We just fell for her right away. You have 2 cuties. Hopefully they will play with each other.
