I finally got around to a formal introduction. I am a regular visitor of this site since 2 years and registered user since a coupleof months.
My user name mbsmum comes from my 2 RB furrboys. Mr.Mishkin (tabby) was 18 years old when I lost him to kidney cancer.Bagheera was 15 years old, he had epithielial cancer in the mouth. I lost both of them within 6 months.
Last september I got 2 furrgirls from a local cat shelter. Ms.Kaveri ( ca 5yrs.) is a heavy weight calico with a big I really mean big spay pouch. Ms. Shiela (4yrs.)is petite black with a much smaller spay pouch.Both of them are neither lap nor very cuddlers. I have to accept them as they are and spoil them rotten.
I live in Zürich in Switzerland, it is the biggest city in this country with a population of about 350'000. I live in the city with a small garden for the cats. I took early retirement in the beginning of this year, I worked as a biologist in a pharmaceutical company in Basle. Main main hobby is historical dancing ( 14th to 19th century). I attend regular classes and also have period costumes.
This is very lovely website and I love reading pettalk ( i got lot of useful information)If there is anything else you would like to know, please just ask.

Welcome, mbsmum! We are looking forward to getting to know you and Ms.Kaveri and MsShiela.
I'm Pat, and I have 5 cats. I've been coming to Pet Talk since 2006. There are many wonderful delightful people and cats and other critters here, and I love it!

Welcome to PT mbsmum.:D This is a wonderful pet forum and I'm sure you'll enjoy your time here. I noticed that you saw my thread about my cats and I'm glad that you enjoyed looking at their pictures.:) I do have 10 cats now and I adopted 5 of them last year. Yes, I'm crazy but I wanted to help out a rescue group with their adoptions so I did. My cats bring me a lot of joy and laughter every day. I look forward to reading more about your cats and hopefully seeing their pictures too.:)
