    Hi @Cruella_loves_spots and welcome to the Community.  How are you today?  It's nice to meet a fellow Scot.  Yes, we are getting lovely weather here and glad you are enjoying it too.  You seem very spirited and determined and we love that on the Community!  I'm sure you do a wonderful job in care.  I like your username by the way.  I take it that it's from Cruella De Ville?  Do you like the film 101 Dalmatians?

    I hope you enjoy your time with us here on the Community as we are a friendly bunch of people so please chat to us anytime.  I look forward to seeing you around.  If there is anything we can do to help/support you then please just let us know.  All the best.  :smiley:

    Its a family nickname, we all have them lol. I have a little pie-bald staffy princess so its comic gold,
    I am studying to be a nurse and have hit a few bumps in the road. I always have my friends backs though, You guys need to be cheered up- always up for a joke and banter to make you smile and cringe lol x

    Oh fab, I love the family nickname!  Your staff sounds really cute!  What is her name?  I have a cat, Christy.  A lot of us have pets on here which give us so much pleasure and we chat about them a lot on the Coffee Lounge and often share their pics too if you ever want to have a look.  

    That's great you are studying to be a nurse, but sorry to hear that you have hit a few bumps in the road, but I'm sure you will get there in the end.  It's a really worthwhile job!  Lovely to hear you have good friends too.  Where would we be without them?!  

    Oh yes, we are always up for being cheered up and having a laugh on here so your banter and a good joke will be really welcome.  We have a thread on the Coffee Lounge too where people are sharing jokes so you may want to post one there.  Anyway, lovely meeting you and I hope you enjoy it on here.  x  :smiley:

    Myah , she is a wee gem, We rehomed her just in time for Santa Paws and you would think she has been here all her life,

    She has her own insta - Myah_w0rld, keeps me amused as its from her point of view.
    Thank you for such a warm welcome x
  • AilsAils Community champion Posts: 2,160 Disability Gamechanger
    Oh Myah is a lovely name and I'm sure she is loving her home.  My cat is a rescue cat and we've had her nearly 6 years now.  Rescue pets make such great pets!  Oh that is wonderful she has her own Instagram page and I bet you it is really funny!  

    You are very welcome.  Have a nice night!  x  :smiley:

    Hi @Cruella_loves_spots - Welcome to this friendly community, & thank you & Myah for joining. What great messages; it certainly sounds like you're fitting right in! It's lovely to read about the work that you do, & that you're studying to be a nurse. I wish you every success as I'm sure that you'll get there. I hope you may share a photo of Myah in our virtual 'Coffee lounge' as you're amongst a lot of animal lovers here. I've had my kitten for a year.....she was abandoned with her mum & brother near me, & they now have a new home together nearby.
    I look forward to hearing more from you. :)
