    Introducing our newest (non furry) family member

    Hello all! It's been so long that I've actively posted here on PT, but thought it was time to introduce my baby girl Sylvia Claire who was born Sept 21, 2011. She's been the center of my world for the past couple of years, but I'd like to try to get more active on this board again.

    For those who don't know or remember me, I have 2 oriental shorthair kitties: Phinehas and Malachi. I used to live in CA and was lucky enough to attend many cat shows with Tracey (krazyaboutcats) who is absolutely wonderful! I sure do miss those days! 4 years ago, my husband and I moved back to my original home state of Indiana so we could settle down and start a family. It was a rough road, but Sylvia was worth it! She's very gentle with the kitties and loves all her stuffed animals, so I hope she's as big of an animal lover as I am!

    What a sweetie she is! She looks like she's flirting, a bit! I'm glad she likes the animals.

    Welcome back to Pet Talk! What a great picture of Sylvia, those big brown eyes will melt hearts! We are glad she is growing up to be a kitty friend, and loves her stuffed animals, she'll a future Pet Talk member for sure!

    And what do the kitties think of her? I remember when Lady's Human first brought their daughter home from the hospital (with Lady's Other Human of course), the cats refused to speak to him for days!

    LOL Karen! I can imagine! They seemed indifferent at first, and then curious. Malachi is still leery, but Phinehas is such a good boy he allows Sylvia to pat him and when he's had enough, he walk away. I'm quite proud at how well everyone has adjusted.

    Hi Karen welcome back!!!! Don't you also have a dachshund too? Sylvia is such an adorable little girl. I sure do miss pet sitting for your cats. I also miss being able to go to cat shows with you. Those were the good old days.

    How sweet and darling she is! Welcome back, wolflady and Phinehas and Malachi, and welcome home, Sylvia Claire!
