    My name is Aida and I'm the mother of a super sweet, loving, personable cat named Cricket. I got to know Cricket while I was fostering kittens for the local Humane Society. A terrible person had thrown Cricket and his brothers and sisters into a garbage dumpster! Sadly, Cricket was the only survivor. He came to me when he was only a week or so old and I fed him with a dropper every two hours, 24 hours a day while pulling a full load of college classes! We bonded over the next several weeks and soon I knew I couldn't be parted from him. He has become my very best friend and my savior. I lost my beloved fiancé to a brief and completely unexpected illness in January of 2016. If not for Cricket I don't know what would have become of me?! I was so devastated that I didn't think I could go on. But from the first day I got home from the hospital, Cricket has not left my side. He sleeps with me every night and plants himself in my lap whenever I sit still. I love him more than anything and want him to be healthy & happy. The main reason I joined this forum is to get advice on cat health and care. I'm excited to jump in and begin talking to and learning from other members!

    Welcome to the forum, Aida! Great to have you and Cricket here :)

    I'm so sorry to hear about what happened to your fiancé, that must have been awful for you. Glad to hear Cricket has been such a supportive pet though!
