Hello everyone! :cool2:

I just purchased my very first cat ever and I dreamed of this moment for over 15 years! I wanted a dog and a cat for a long time and due to allergies and living arrangements I could not get either until now!

A dog would probably be something I am ready for financially and responsibly once I have a partner who lives with me but for now I am savoring the moment and CANNOT WAIT to get my new kitten! :hyper:

It is 1 day old and we don't even know the sex yet but it seems to be a mix between American Long Hair and Chartreux with the color being the Chartreux one.

I am trying to come up with names now and have a little help from friends and family. I am so excited just thinking "This moment is when I made a special friend/companion who will be with me over 10 years and even closer to 20 years hopefully. Just positively overwhelming and making me smile. :redheartpump:

I started a thread in Cat Health if anyone wants to give me their 2 cents.

All the best! :wave3:

Wow congratulations! A cat and a dog will fill your life with love, smiles and endless cuddles. For now, enjoy the kitty while there is still no doggie. I used to be a dog person only. Now I am hooked with these felines, too. :lol:

And take lots of photos. These rascals grow up too fast. :redheartpump:

Looking forward to more posts from you.

Welcome to TCS! :wave3: I love both cats and dogs too. One of our cats bonded very closely with our dog but all have coexisted well. We're excited that you will soon have a kitten to join your family. Do you know when you will be bringing him or her home? Regarding names, it's good to make a list but you may want to wait until the kitten lives with you to get a better idea about their personality/temperament. Best of luck and please keep us posted.:goodluck:

Hi Mr. Kitty! Welcome and I'm so happy for you. :hyper::hyper:

You'll come up with a great name!

I can only imagine right now what it is like having 1 or 2 cats in the house and a dog on top of that haha. Probably so much work until it becomes a second nature.

I will be taking so many photos and videos and I just recently got a super amazing new phone so they'll be high quality :)

It's so special to see a cat and a dog play together :)
I know it will be between end of March and Mid April. That will be 12-14 weeks from December 28th, 2020 (Kitten's birthday).
I think it is also a good idea to wait and not force the name assigning until I spend some time with it and it just feels right or if I happen to come up with one that I know will suit it no matter what. I never named a pet like a cat or a dog before so this will be a first for me :)
