I also wanted to take the opportunity to bump this thread. Our members have been prolific this weekend.
Thanks, Linda - they do leave very special pawprints on our hearts, don't they?

I just have to tell you that this story is making me sob. I have a 19 year old Blue Point boy, and I just know that I will feel the same way, when his time comes. I can so very much relate to what you went through and your love for the "special" breed of cat, Siamese. Thank You, for sharing.
My dear ... thank YOU.

How many kitties are you mom to?

How did you get involved in helping cats?

Did you come from a big family?

Where did you grow up (big or little town)?

How did you find a husband to pull the chicken off the cone for you?!?!
(I won't eat meat off of the bone either but my husband would laugh at me.)

Conrgats!!!
Hi Catherine! The mother of the site, hrmmm? I DO care for a lot of people in my life, but the only time anyone ever called me "mother", it had a nasty connotation to it. LOL I felt so badly back in the Fall when you were having those issues - I looked and looked for a way to help and just couldn't find anything that would be a solution! I am happy to know it worked out, though. Now on to your questions ...

I am Mom to seven kitties currently, although 5 of them are going to their new homes within the next couple of weeks. After they leave, I will have two.

I got involved in helping cats by sheer virtue of the fact that cats have helped ME all of my life. Whenever I was blue or hurting about something, my mom's two littermates would be right there - can't tell you how many times their fur got washed by my tears!

My immediate family consists of my Mom and Dad and my two older sisters. Dad is gone 3 years now, and my oldest sister lives halfway across the country from me. The other sister and I have been "estranged" for over 20 years and don't speak to each other. I have a VERY large extended family - my husband comes from a family with 5 children and we all live very close to each other. There is a score of nieces and nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins ... I can't keep up with them all! It was a sort of rude awakening to marry into this family when my own was small.

I grew up in the suburbs of Richmond, Virginia. It was a medium-sized city, but the burbs had a small-town feel. I now live in the country - a very rural place located about 40 miles north of Richmond. I love it out here. The night sky is so very beautiful - there are no lights and one can actually SEE the stars. It was very cold here last night, but still, I bundled up to go outside and watch the meteor shower. It was simply magical.

LOL My husband found me. I was walking to the dumpster carrying a big green trashbag of all the old, safety-pinned underthings I wanted to throw away ... he drove by and tooted the horn at me. I was startled by the horn blowing, dropped the bag and it broke open, spilling all those old, hole-y underwear all over the place. And wouldn't you just know it, the man actually STOPPED TO HELP ME PICK THEM UP. Can you imagine the level of mortification? We laughed, I blushed to the very roots of my hair and he asked me to dinner. The rest, as they say, is history. LOL

GREAT questions! Thanks!

Gaye

My happiest memory is of the day I married my current husband. It poured down rain, my apratment flooded, I was running around, trying to get dressed in 2 feet of water, my cats were flipping out, my mom was in hysterics and my husband was nearly an hour late getting to the ceremony, but it all turned out well and now, nearly 17 years later, I am still a very happy woman. He treats me like I was a very fragile, hothouse flower. I love it.

Welllllll ... ummmm ... no. LOL But that certainly wouldn't stop you from coming up here to Ashland and visiting. But you had better hurry, these babies are not so much babies anymore!

Great questions!

Describe your earliest acute memory.
Gosh, the defining moment question is a very difficult one! I would have to say the day my Dad died ... it defined me as an individual, no longer someone's child. I felt truly alone in the world when for all of my past, I knew Daddy would be there to catch me if I fell, just like me did when I was learning to walk, ride a bike, rollerskate, whatever.

The person I owe so many thanks so would have to be my kindergarten teacher. Mom (at the time) drank heavily and often forgot me. This lady took me under her wing and taught me how to be a "lady". I never thought it was important that I know I should always blow my nose BEFORE entering a warm building in the winter time, I never thought I would need to know that one always tucks a tissue into one's sleeve when one isn't carrying a purse or bag, and I never ever dreamed I would need to know that one mustn't wear white shoes after Labor Day. But, I did need to know these things and it saved me lots of embarrassment over the years.

My earliest acute memory was of President Kennedy's assasination. I remember clearly seeing it on TV and watching my mother react to it.

GREAT questions!!! Thanks,

~gf~

5. Prints/solids/stripes/polka dots...........which are your favorites/least favorites?
1) Yes, there are days that I do regret not having children of my own. But, I know it would have been a horrible mistake and that does make it easier.

2) I am sort of ecclectic in my taste of music. In the car, I listen to classic rock or country. But at home, I listen to head-banging stuff. LOL

3) Black is my favorite color.

4) I LOVE crafty things. I am just no good at making them into something someone ELSE loves. LOL

5) Definately solids are my fav. I am a fat girl and fat girls shouldn't wear stripes EVER. LOL

Great questions! Thanks.

1) Quiero gastar mis fines de semana calladamente en casa si puedo, pero a menudo, yo no soy capaz de hacerlo esa manera. Cuido de a mi madre de edad avanzada y tan fines de semana se gastan normalmente en su casa con ella. De otro modo, mi marido y yo gozan alquilar y pelÃ:censor:culas que miran y jugar X-CAJA los juegos (el favorito actual es la Def Jam Fight For New York).

And now in English: I like to spend my weekends quietly at home if I can, but often, I am not able to do it that way. I take care of my elderly mother and so weekends are normally spent at her house with her. Otherwise, my husband and I enjoy renting and watching movies and playing X-Box games (current favorite is Def Jam - Fight For New York).

2) Algún taponazo está bien, pero prefiero Piedra Clásica.

English: Some pop is OK, but I prefer Classic Rock.

3) ¡Reúno actualmente mi China de la boda y por supuesto, algo relacionando a gatos siameses!

I am currently collecting my wedding china and of course, anything relating to Siamese cats!

4) Definately comedia pero segundo a que serÃ:censor:a espÃ:censor:a/el misterio/el escalofriante

Definately comedy but second to that would be spy/mystery/thriller

5) ¡Helado nuevo de Pastilla de Chocolate! ¡Yummmmmmy!

Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream! Yummmmmmy!

Thanks!!!!

One of my current inspirations is a lady named Barb A. She lives in Connecticut and has faced some pretty adverse times and conditions in the recent past. Her absolutely amazing ability to keep a positive attitude and sense of humor is truly something to be admired. Barb is one of my Breeder Mentors. She is of such great assistance to me in helping me understand WHY things are done the way they are (I have such a burning need to know the Why's of things *sigh*) and how to avoid stumbling right into those holes she stumbled into so many years ago as she was first starting out. I couldn't be where I am in my breeding program and goals if it weren't for her.

Oh dear ... the holidays. Well, I am at a bit of a loss as to how I need to answer this one ... I guess the short answer to your question is - the thing I like best about the holidays is when they are over. I don't really like anything much about the holidays, I'm afraid. It was never a happy time for me as a child and as a young adult, I was always alone so it wasn't a big deal.

Oh, I am going to be sorry not to describe in graphic detail, but my fav dessert is simply Breyer's Mint Chocolate Chip Ice Cream, stirred into what I call Ice Cream Soup and eaten from a large coffee mug with an ice tea spoon. *LOL*

Great Questions! Thank you!

Well, I cannot find that translation site now - I thought I had it bookmarked, but oh well ...

1) Sunrise - because it is quiet, the phone doesn't ring, the cats are usually down for their morning nap, my hubby is still abed, and I can make my favorite flavored coffee to drink while I am reading the new overnight posts here at TCS.

2) No, no bike for me!

3) I do like board games! I like Monopoly the best but I also like Risk and chess.

4) I don't know how to answer this - but I guess the short answer would be no, not really. I do have my own personal beliefs and they give me peace, but I am not a practicing member of any organized religion.

Great Questions!! Thanks!

I have no questions, just wanted to say I've enjoyed getting to know you better this week.

Also, I don't like soft ice cream but I have to take my hard ice cream and stir it until it's soft like soft ice cream before I eat it - is that crazy? You may not think so.

"I don't find that crazy at all", she said as she stirred her Breyer's Mint Chocolate Chip ice cream into Ice Cream Soup ... LOL
