    Hi there, everyone!

    My name is Kirsten. I'm a university student from the USA, studying biology, animal behavior, and psychology. Haven't decided what I "want to be when I grow up," but it'll probably be something related to animals. Lately I've been playing with the idea of a career in ichthyology.

    Which brings me to why I'm here. I love animals of all sorts. I'm a member on a number of tropical aquarium forums, but I wanted to find a place where I could share, and build, my knowledge of more than just fish. After searching for a while, I landed here.

    You'll see me mostly in the cat and fish portions of the site, until I'm comfortable enough with this place to branch out. I have strong opinions about many controversial topics, so I might ruffle some features. For example, I'm a firm believer in generous space for bettas and grain-free diets for cats. But I'm a friendly person, and I will always be respectful, even in hot topics. =)

    That said, I'm excited to be a newbie here! Hope I'll get to know you all!
