Greetings from Jackal, Nukumi, and the new kitten!

I just joined and wanted to post my greetings to the forums!

I have two lovely adult kitties:
- Jackal (in my avatar) is five years old and the queen of the house. She came from the unwanted litter of a friend-of-a-friend, and rules the roost. She's not the cuddliest cat, but she loves to be around people! Jackal always knows what's going on around here. Here is Jackal's Catster page. (
- Nukumi is four years old and just as sweet as sweet can be. She likes to snuggle and to play! Nukumi was rescued from a shelter before they could put her to sleep. She has some behavioral issues that likely stem from her upbringing, but we love her to bits. Here is Nukumi's Catster page. (

We just added a third member to our home -- a 9 month old kitten who doesn't have a name quite yet. He came from Baghdad where some US aid workers rescued his pregnant mama. He was born in Iraq, received his medical care in Bahrain, and finally made his way to the US to find a home. He's incredibly affectionate (I've never known such a purring, cuddly kitten), and he's a little acrobat!

I actually joined this site to get some insight about him -- we just got word from our vet that his serological tests came up "mildly positive" for FECV (the virus that can cause FIP). So I'll be posting in the health forum about that.

I can't wait to meet everyone! :)
