Hi everyone!

I actually first posted here way back in 2015, then forgot all about it but am now back. I've been posting some things, but just realised I haven't introduced myself!

I'm a 42 (soon to be 43) year old woman from Australia. I have a long term partner who is a woman. I am bisexual but kind of bordering on asexual too.

I live by the beach and on a river, and I have one cat furbaby, who will turn 13 soon. He's a Libra, like me. He had a fur brother who sadly left us at age 9, over 3 years ago. I am still not ok about it.

I have long term chronic / constant depression, severe anxiety since the age of 4, mild OCD, BPD, cPTSD, PTSD, and am high on the antisocial spectrum. I daydream way too much, am a chocaholic and a shopaholic. I don't drink, smoke or do drugs though (except my meds...which don't really work). Yay me. lol

Nice to meet ya!

Is your avatar your own fur baby.?
It’s gorgeous.

i‘m sorry about you still suffering the loss of your other
furbaby.

I know exactly what you are going through.
I have had many cats but nothing can take away the feeling
of loss.
My youngest one only lived 5 months.
The oldest was 21.

Like you, I have many severe mental health illnesses.
Life can be so difficult.

Take care.

Thank you so much! No, the pic in my avatar is a random cute furbaby from Google. lol.

My baby is an orange medium hair tabby named Monty. His brother was a silver tabby Manx breed baby named Dweezil. He was such a cheeky thing. He was diagnosed with Diabetes at age 6 and it was a real struggle to control and regulate it. Insulin injections, special diet, measuring water consumption, testing his pee. None of it was a burden, though it was incredibly stressful, as he almost died many times from too high and too low blood glucose. We saved his life all but one of those times as we were so familiar with how he normally acted and knew immediately if he was not quite right. My only wish is that we could have saved him forever. He flew over the rainbow bridge, held in our arms peacefully after a week long, lost battle with recurrent Ketoacidosis, on 2 March 2018.

He was my fluffy soulmate.
