Hello Everyone!

Since we got the OK to set up a "general chat area," we wanted to come up with a topic that wasn't too confusing and had a bit of personality to it ๐Ÿ™‚ Rose (Roseytoesrose) came up with the idea of calling it "Le Chat" because "chat" is the French term for Cat. Hoping that all cat lovers can come together and get to know each other in this discussion group ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks! Although, I don't want to steal the thunder from Rose ๐Ÿ˜‰ We were both thinking something with the word "chat" in it, I just couldn't be as creative as Rose's partner hehe. I think Rose has been busy over the past few days since we haven't seen her post much, but I wanted to have it set up before she comes back ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for setting this up Anita. Apologies for not being online the past few days. We have a lot going on at the moment unfortunately.ย

Hi everyone!! Welcome to the chat area. 😀

As Anita (xmizzanituhx) has already mentioned, this is a general chat area, where we're hoping forum members will come together, ask questions, and get to know each other.ย 

I thought I'd start off with a quick introduction of myself. My name is Rose, and I live in a small town called Shrewsbury in England, UK. I live with my partner Si (Simon when I'm mad with him!), but unfortunately we don't have any children. We do however have a wonderful furmily of 8 beautiful cats! Four of them are moggies (street cats) and four of them are pedigree ragdolls. They vary in age from approx 17.5 to 6 months, and each have their own unique purr-sonalities. I don't work due to long term sickness/disability, so am at home all day enjoying the company of my fur-babies. Sadly we lost one of our fur-babies last December. He's on my collage still, as I can't bare not to include him. I've made 2 lovely friends already on this forum, whilst entering the giveaways. We started to chat to each other, instead of just typing the usual, boring 'I want to win'. It's lovely getting to know other people who are cat lovers too (why else would they be on this forum?), and potentially from all around the world. 😀

How about you? Do you have anything you'd like to share? Or is there anything you'd like to ask?ย 

Looking forward to seeing more people chatting on here!!ย

Nice introduction, Rose ๐Ÿ™‚ I'll follow your lead!

My name is Anita, and I live in Southern California. Mother of 2 cats (Oreo & S'mores) - who are twin sisters, turning 1 on 8/26/17. So as of now, they are still rebellious little kittens hehe. I stumbled on this forum completely by chance because the Administrator, Marc, commented on one of my posts on WordPress, urging me to enter the girls into Tummy Rub Tuesday. When I saw the giveaway prizes, I couldn't resist but to enter and interact via forums to gain extra entries! Luckily I did too, because I've made 2 wonderful friends: Rose (Roseytoesrose) and Crystal (Daisy-Mae).

Rose and I are coming up with a few different forum topics to get everyone excited about having some fun cat talk ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks for introducing yourself Anita. โ˜บ I love the photos you've selected to share. You're girls are so pretty! You get some great photos of them too. 😃 Perhaps you can offer some tips on how you get these great shots?ย 

Rose.

Glad you like the pictures of my girls! It's funny actually, because they don't like to sit still for photos. A lot of times, boyfriend and I have to do it quiet and fast. Because even if we take 1 second too long, they'll get distracted and move/run away. There are times even when they're sleeping and I want to take a cute picture of them, but since cats have such good hearing, they get distracted with my movement I guess and I end up missing out on the photo opportunity haha.

Taking cute photos of kitties can sometimes be a 2 people thing too. One person plays with or gets the cat's attention, while the other one is taking photos. Doing multiple shots and picking out the best one works too.

Hello Everyone!

Glad it's almost the weekend ๐Ÿ™‚

Since Rose asked me to talk about my photo taking techniques last time, I also remembered that recently, they have come out with some toys or treats you could attach to your phone to get your pet's attention to take cuter photos. I have a second job doing demos for a pet food called Wellness, and I work inside 2 different Petsmarts over the weekend. When they have events while I'm there, I get to help out too. It's just fun I think. Anyway, a few weeks ago, they had this dog event where they had a ball toy attachment for your phone to make photo taking easier. I haven't tried it myself, and I know they have made something similar for cats ... have any of you tried it, and does it work?

I always just have to be sure I catch my girls at the right time either when they're not paying attention, or that I'm moving/walking soft enough to where it doesn't disturb them and cause them to move hehe.

Good News. Dad bought a shed on Saturday. Finally we got one. Let you know when they put it in. Here are a couple pictures what the shed looks like.

That's great news, Crystal! I like the colors of this new shed too ๐Ÿ™‚

By the way, sorry it's taking me a long time to get that manuscript to you. I received your email over the weekend but I've just been so busy ~ I'll send it to you soon!

Rose, I haven't seen you post here for a while ... I hope everything is OK with you and Si's family ๐Ÿ™ How is Cookie doing?
