Hello, and welcome to Following Cats. I hope you will join me on a journey of discovering the wonders of life when you follow your love of cats.
My name is Tina Barbour, and I live with my two cats and my husband in Virginia. Abbey is a ginger tabby girl who will be two in April. Natasha is a black and white girl who is about four. They are both rescues.
Abbey, Natasha, and I will all be authors of this blog. I will tell stories, post pictures, tell you about things I’ve learned about cats, and help advocate for the welfare of cats and all animals. Sometimes Abbey and Natasha will give you their perspectives on life.
I’m a late-blooming cat person. I spent my youth and young adulthood oblivious to the beauty of cats. It’s still surprising to me that I became a cat person. I’m sure I’ve surprised friends and family too.
I remember years ago, right after I had gotten married and my husband and I merged our cats into one family. A friend from grad school wrote me and said, “I always knew you’d find a good man. I never thought you would become a cat mama.”
The 18 years or that I’ve had cats in my life have been the best years of my life. The love, joy, and peace that I experience with cats—that’s what I want to share with you.
I will post three times a week, on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. I hope you will enjoy what you experience here and will interact with me and others in the comments.
Hope to see you on Wednesday, when I will begin introducing you to my cats.
