Hi, I'm new.

I didn't want to be a jerk and just post in the "need medical help" forum without at least saying hello.

So, Hi. My name is Matt. I live in Australia. I have three pets, an 11 (on October 28) year old labrador named Lan, a 2 year old "second hand" Maine Coon that I just got in February, named Jack and a less that 1 year old cockatiel named Alfie who likes scratches and whistling the song from The Great Escape.

Currently my dog is having some problems which I posted in the other forum. So it's half past two in the morning here and I am sitting on the floor next to her bed with the laptop.

Hi, Matt! Welcome to the board!

Sorry you're having so many troubles with Lan. We'd love to see pics of your furbaby if you have some to share!

Hi. Thanks for the welcome. Here are a couple of pics.


This is Jack. He is not camera shy in the slightest.


And this is Lan, after her first operation. She is usually anti-camera. I'm not sure why.


Here is a photo of her before she got sick. She'd just seen a cat outside. She's never been aggressive towards cats, but she doesn't like ones she doesn't know in her yard.

Welcome cattychew. I love that "second hand cat"! Cute!!! Thank you for being his #1 owner. He is gorgeous!!
Lan is a beauty as well. In the second pic of her she looks like she has been crying.

He may be cute, but he is a handful. And she does tend to get upset when she can't play with the outside cats.

Yeah they're cute... When they're not tormenting eachother.

I didn't think I had a photo of Alfie online (he doesn't sit still for it often enough) but I found an old one from not long after I got him.


He's a bit bigger now than he is there.
