    I've been reading this forum for a few tips ever since I first got my kitty almost 2 years ago, and I've just taken the plunge to join the community. Sorry if I make a few mistakes at first, I feel a bit out of my depth. I lost my beautiful dog 2 years ago, she was 15 and my shadow so I was lost. I'm disabled so felt I couldn't have another dog as I can't walk very well. I really wanted a companion and was persuaded to get a cat. I never thought I was a cat person, but now I am SO much a cat person. I'm looking forward to sharing lots of feline stories and hearing tips and maybe even sharing some of my own.

    Welcome :) Once you let a cat into your heart they're there for ever !

    Is that your fur baby ? Can we have their stats p lease - boy/girl, name, age etc - he/she looks like a little cuddle monster :)

    Hi again, this mischievous rogue is called Misty. She is loads of fun but keeps me on my toes, always bringing in gifts like lizards and daddy long legs lol. She is a teenager in a strop when she can't get her own way and I have the scars to prove it!! Can you tell me how to to reply on here, I'm not sure what I'm doing, I presume this is going only to you, but what if I want to add to this thread for everyone t see?

    Thank you all so much for the replies and likes. I've become a bit tearful by your kindness as I've felt quite lonely lately. It's nice to know I may find some friends.

    Misty sounds as though she will keep you entertained .
    As for the forum you are doing fine,as @Mrs Funkin said when replying on this or any thread all posts are visible to anyone to read and reply to.
    The use of the @ sign is used only to alert a member to a post you have written.
    I'm sure you will soon get the hang of it all,If you get stuck just shout out someone will know the answer :)

    The sticky threads are at the top of the page and shaded in a different colour. They are so named because they are "stuck" to the top of the first page so they don't get lost in the list.. typically full of helpful info!

    Oh and conversations are called "threads" like a thread of conversation.

    Misty in the freezer is a definite contender for the photo competition!

    You should put that pic in the photo competition, there's just one place left.

    Sticky threads are the ones at the top of each section above Normal Threads which are there permanently.
