Howdy everyone! I'm Kawenu, or Kaw if you're feeling too lazy for 6 letters. I've had a cat around me all my life, and currently have four in my family, now. I decided to join this forum because I want to learn more about cats while participating in a community! My current goals with my meows is to learn how to use clicker training to make our lives more exciting, and to perhaps harness train my eldest and youngest boys. I'm now gonna introduce everyone from oldest to youngest! This is Betsy. She came to be apart of my life when my wife moved in with me. She's somewhere around 13 or 14 years old. Unfortunately, she was declawed by previous owners before being placed in a shelter. She's been rehomed several times in her life, but she's with us forever, now. This image is of her when we woke up first thing. No food, and Oop had clearly done his damage to the water bowl. This big doofus is my boy, Child. I obtained him in 2012, after my aunt took in a stray who promptly had a litter of kittens. He's very special in that he has deformed ribs and all his toes point out a little too far. He's a bit clumsy, but insists that he should be allowed outdoors. I disagree, until he learns to walk on a leash. Pictured here are my boys, Oop (left) and Child (right). Oop is an acronym name, "Out of Paint." I've been accused of being very midwestern for this name, and I've come to terms with this. Still, my half-brained Oop is a very good, cuddly boy who will tell you all about his day, even if you didn't ask. He's 4 years old now, but he has no idea. He's pretty sure he's still a baby. Last, but not least, is our tiny black shadow, Darwin! He was delivered to us by my sister-in-law, April 12th. She removed him from a questionable environment, asked if we'd take him, and obviously we said yes. He had a very bumpy start though, and this picture was taken just as he take done a 180° for the better. We look forward to a long and fun-filled life with Darwin and all his silly antics. And that's a quick intro of all the cats!! I look forward to getting to know everyone and I hope to learn a lot here, especially about cat training.
