post #31 of 53
The critter who knows Mary Anne's touch and care is indeed blessed -- as are all those of human persuasion who cross her path and experience her compassion, her wisdom, her humanity, her humour. Thanks for all you give so freely to this community, MA. You're the best.

Hissy, I am praying for you and for your husband. I hope things are better. Thank you for everything you do on these forums.

Since I'm starting it, I'll pick today's recipient, then tomorrow she can pick tomorrow's recipent, ok? In that case, to get the ball rolling, my choice, as the title implies, is

HISSY !
Well, everyone took the words right out of my mouth. MA has been a great person ever since I joined this site. Very thoughtful, caring and I love reading her fun replies.

P.S. This type of thread was a great idea! For the love of catnip, feel the love people!

Can i go hide under a rock now........please? I can't find a rock so I will use a couch.

Truly all of you overwhelm me, and Kelly, showing me the pictures of your feral kitten before and after made me smile, and brought tears of joy into my heart.

I have been told I am harsh with people, and in a way I guess I am. without really meaning to be. Because I am here for the love of cats and for their well-being. If I have to step on a few human feelings along the way in order to get a point across or to help a cat in pain or danger, that's what I do.

It's nice to see that I haven't trampled over the tops of all of you.

Again I thank you for your warm words and kind sentiments.

How grand that this thread is there to honor a person Just Because - for the entire day, and our first one is MaryAnne.
I cannot think of a person whom I would trust more in an emergency to keep a cool head and warm heart; to go to for some of the best cat expertise ever; to be in a little awe over the innate animal talent and gifts she posesses; to ask to be a friend in times of need; to emulate as far as ethics and dignity when dealing with some of the toughest issues we face in life; and for having the guts to step up to the plate and Just Nail It --when she really is a very soft-spoken marshmallow.
Oh yeah, and who I would go to for a super-secret salsa recipe, too!
Get out from unerneath that couch, woman!
Your TCS friends +++ to the north,
Elizabeth, Eric, and Sasha

Hissy, you're 100% deserving of all the wonderful things everyone here has been saying about you. Thank you so much for being a part of this community....and by the way: You Rock!!!!!!!

I have gone from finding a professional person to do some advertising with who was courteous, quick, and very helpful, to finding something I'd not thought I'd find again...a warm, wonderful cat loving environment...colored very much by the character and integrity, the warmth of Hissy.

Thank you for keeping the site going and being there for people in need of help. And no, I'm afraid you haven't scared us away even if you wanted to
Here's a pic of the two ferals you helped me with. They are a motley pair, aren't they?

They are beautiful!

for all you do!

Mary Anne was one of the very first people on here who spoke to me individually when I first started coming here. I joined this site on the day Thomas and Cooper were born (July 30, 2004) and had so many questions and was such a nervous "mom." I never birthed no kittens before!!

But through PM's and email.....she helped me get through those early days and was such a tremendous help!

So for all you have done....and all you continue to do.....Mary Anne....I thank you.....and Thomas and Cooper thank you too!

I've seen you get harsh, and sometimes pretty... um... hissy But you are HONEST. Your honesty in some situations where others are afraid to speak their minds, is so needed. If YOU didn't speak up sometimes and say what needs said... well, I don't know who else would. The ones you've stepped on, who pop back up, and learn from what you say... I would assume they admire you. The ones who run away with their tail between their legs, well, they are missing out.

I admire your ability to speak your mind without worrying about what the person may think of you. You speak FOR the cats. Your voice is loud for them, because they can't speak english. There was even a time when your loud voice got my attention, and made me look at the whole picture, rather then just a small portion. Without you, some cats would NOT be heard.

I also want to say THANKOU from all the cat's who's lives you've touched from your computer chair.

Yeah! I got "Say something nice about the catlover above you" here. This is great! Two paws up!

Mary Anne, she's thoughtful, loving, truthful, and an amazing admin here. Everyone knows it.

Mary Anne, I think you've always been fair. Maybe we don't thank you enough for that. As always, I think this is the cleanest and most respectable community board to be invloved with ever, and you have a big hand in leading it to be that way.

I'm glad he brought you happiness...that's his specialty! I remember reading one of your posts saying (and I paraphrase) that once a feral trusts you, that it's one of the best feelings in the world. How right you were! I've fostered domesticated kittens, loved them, and let them go with tears in my eyes. But these kittens, and especially the one in the picture, well they're just...special. Having them, even for just a few weeks, is an experience that I'll never forget. The only way I could think to thank you is with visual evidence of the difference you are making in the lives of these special babies, and those of us who are lucky enough to have known them!

Also, I've never thought of you as harsh...more like you cut to the heart of the matter. Often that's what's called for.

Thanks guys, and I injured my leg earlier today so I don't know if I will be able to sit at the computer much tomorrow, so I abdicate this honorable mention you gave me today. I thank all of you for your kind words and giving heart- and here is a link to the next person in line-

Thank you especially, to those who shared the photos of their feral cats that I had a hand in helping. That validates me most of all!

Before you go a'runnin off there lil Missy ... *grin*

I came into this thread WAY late, but just wanted to say my piece. If I was able to custom-order a friend, they would be just like you in every way. You are a jewel among rocks, you are, to me, the 8th Wonder of The World. Your advice, whether it is stern or humorous, is always RIGHT ON and I can honestly say that I do not know what I would do without your input and friendship. I know I would be a lesser person without it.

OMG!! You have NEVER, EVER been harsh with me!! I am sorry I got onto this thread so late. We had a bad ice storm and we had no electricity for the better part of the last 4-5 days! (UGH!!) But I do want to add, that when my little Spikey had to be put down, due to being so very ill, you made it feel a bit better, with making me realize (with some other wonderful posters) that I WAS doing the right and most humane thing, to help my little guy move on to the Rainbow Bridge, although he was only less than 2 years old. He was still so very desperately ill--and no Vet answers in sight..... You helped give me strength to do what I had to do, to help my poor little Spike, and for that (AND for all your words of wisdom...) I thank you, my online TSC friend!!!
