Hello from Ohio, USA

Post  ahorner58 on Sat Jun 18, 2011 8:16 pm

Hello all!
My name is Anna and I live in the heart of Ohio. I have 3 cats of mixed ancestry all rescues.
We visited Kenya in September 2010 for 10 days. We plan to return to Africa in Sept. 2012 for a longer stay. I am interested in all wildlife especially the cats, large and small. I also find the hyenas very interesting!
Thanks for letting me join,
Anna

Hi Anna, lovely to hear from you.

I have rescue cats as well, 2 boys Jet and Gizmo - you can see photos of them here : http://wildaboutanimals.forumotion.net/t63-jet-and-giz

Have you an photos of you furries?

In 2006 we went on Honeymoon to Tanzania on Safari and would love to go back eventually. Not just for the wildlife but the culture and people were sooo nice.

It is a pleasure to have you on board Anna and are welcome to comment and add to the forum. You will probably be most interested in the African Wildlife thread and 'live' webcams. Browse the forum there will be loads that would interest you.

Hello Anna

Welcome to WAA. I hope you enjoy looking round the site, there are plenty of different topics and lots on Africa.

We've two dogs, one Rhodesian Ridgeback called Tamu (swahili for sweet) and a rescue retired Greyhound called Penny.

I'm mad keen on Africa, especially Kenya and we are going there again this September Very Happy

Look forward to you joining in.

HI Anna

WELCOME TO WAA

How did you fine us? it's always nice to know how new members found the forum.

Anyway, a huge welcome to you and I hope you find lots here to interest you. I see a few members have given you some threads to look at and i'm sure you will enjoy looking through them.

Like SM says, it would be lovely to see some pictures of your cats if you have any to post, we all love seeing other members pets. We are a wildlife forum but pets also play a large part of WAA, they kind of become honary members Very Happy

I have three cats, two American Semi Longhaired Maine Coons, Tiga and Splodge and a little black domestic shorthaired called Sparkles and a nutty but loveable Black male Cocker Spaniel called Nero. He is English in breed but his coat is very similar to an American Cocker, very thick and woolly.

Look forward to hearing your news, views and thoughts on all things animal and we also have a general lets talk thread where we can all have a day to day natter with each other.

Enjoy the forum Anna and look forward to catching up with you.

Long delay in reply....

It's been a very busy past year or so. Job changes, new grandbabies, life in general. We went back to Kenya this past Sept. for 2 weeks. Enjoyed watching 2 small crossings! None of the Wildebeest or Zebra was anyone's lunch, that made it more enjoyable for me. Next trip is to Tanzania in 2014.
We still have our 3 rescue cats. We now take care of a stray cat that we can't coax indoors. We feed her and provide her with a heated cat house on our back deck. If she ever needs medical attention we'll provide it. I'm going to try to upload pictures of the cats. For some reason I can't upload the pictures, I'll keep trying..

Well done Anna Colbert is lovely to. Sounds like you've had a busy 12 months. Two of our members have not long returned from the Mara, and have posted some photos of their trip if you'd like to see them they are on this link from Safariman and Lai. You can also post some of your last trip there if you wish

Looking forward to hearing about your safari. We're just back from Kenya, the north and loved every minute of it.

Hi Anna

It's lovely to hear from you again and it does sound as though you have had busy year, life is like that at time s isn't it, in fact it just seems to get busier I think.
How lovely that you got back to Kenya nd have a trip to Tanzania booked for 2014, it's always lovely to have something to look forward too isn't it. Please do post some of your pictures when you get time, we would all love to see them, its something we all look forward too.
Your cats are simply adorable and I do love their names. Kim and Chi certainly do not look their age do they and Cowcat is gorgeous, I do love white cats with black splodges. I must also say a huge well done for looking after Colbert and I suppose she is just happy being outdoors, maybe that is all she has known and she is happy with life that way but at least she has regular food, care and attention and a warm cat house to go too. I am glad you posted their pics, now we can officially welcome, Cowcat, Kim, Chi and Colbert to the forum Group Hug
