:goodvibes: ~ Hello All ~ I'm fairly new here, though I've posted a few threads in the past week or two since I found this site. Just wanted to say I've found a lot of useful information and good vibes from all of you animal lovers here. How long has this forum been around? Where did it begin?? -- (other than cyberspace.) I notice there are a lot of people from Canada. I'm in Hawaii. Happy Fourth of July to all who are celebrating it and hope your pets are not too startled by the fireworks in your area. Aloha! :usa:

:thumbs up Hi ~ Thanks for filling me in! It is an interesting site with an interesting background. BTW, Marko, I have a cat that is identical to the one you have pictured. The same deep blues eyes and the same coloring -- beautiful if I may say so myself!! I look forward to chatting with any and all of you in the future!

Welcome to the board, and as usual, some BB regulars (plus Marko/mod) have jumped in to help out re: query. I'm on some other boards that are British and American, so it's kind of nice to have such a good :thumbs up one that is 'Made in Canada'...everyone welcome, of course!
I've found a ton of support/encouragement/advice on here over the past couple of years which has made a great difference in the lives of me and the critters I serve :rolleyes:; indoor cats, feral cats esp.!, and dogs :D. Glad to hear of your positive impression, and I'm sure it will continue!
p.s. you've likely picked up on this already, but including pics with a question or thread when relevant is always appreciated; helps to make a situation 'come alive'...
