With the reminder of the forum back up and running I thought we could do a catch up thread. Many are now on Facebook but this is where it all began!

I joined in 2007 looking for health info for the handsome Charley. He died on Feb 26, 2008.

In April 2008 the duo from Deb Rause arrived via Heather - Hershey and Lucy. Hershey will be 15 in a few months and Lucy will be 14.

Those two childrenn I was homeschooling? One is in final semester at Uni and the youngest is final semester of high school :)

Sooo... Bring us all up to date?

I joined in 2008 - I found this site on a desperate search to know more about ear polyps, which were afflicting my dear RB, Luvie.  Unfortunately we lost Luvie to a very virulent ear infection that went to her brain, she was not even 4.  But from contacts here I got my dear Honey, who is lying beside me in the sun, and Yoda, who is a joy even if her is a naughty bully!  Sadly, we lost our big red darling, Mr Marmaduke the Marmalade Cat (Marmie), a few months before we moved to Tassie in Sept 2013, and lost Raymond the big cream tabby Ori X about 9 months after.  Both of them were only 11 so it was very hard.


The current 5 are - in age order - old style seal point Siamese, Zafira - 20+, DSH x British blue bicolour, Tinkerbelle - 16+, 'semi-morden' seal point Siamese, Honey - 13, Cornish Rex cream tabby, Yoda - 9, and the beautiful green eyed lilac Oriental, Farida - 5.


Miss Tinkerbelle is at the vet today as we have been trying for a week to get a urine sample, she just kicks the sample tray with plastic things in it over, gives me a disgusted look, and hangs on!

Hi Jen, I joined back in 2003 (I think).  I have had a variety on cats in the interim but my initial nick of Muffy was of my dear tortoiseshell Scottish Fold.  I also had Zoe & Elmo, both Scottish Folds.  I was then introduced, through here,  to the wonderful Devon Rex, and yes at first I thought them ugly, but then Patricia posted a photo of a special little black smoke called Afro Girl & I was hooked.  I never met her, but she was the catalyst for my love of this special breed.  I now have Miki (nearly 14), Stella (RIP), Bobby (10.5) & now the dearest little pet call Yum Yum (3).  I was a mod & then became an admin (which I still am).  I really miss the fun, friendship & wonderful camaraderie that we had here.

Edited to add - my signature was made by dear Sara (sealhope), so it will never change

Nice to see somebody posting. I started this site in about 2002, the first forum was hosted on boards2go, I was just looking for it now, I am sure it still exists out there somewhere, would love to find it and have a read.


I hope you are all well :)

I think I joined early 2007?


I still have Pippin (nearly 12 years old now). Grey and white. Pictured here in my avatar.


I also have Ruben (nearly 11 years old). Ginger and white.


Both domestic shorthairs.


I am unable to upload a picture of them here - for some reason? 


Am still in contact with lots of people from CatWorld - such a great site!
