I'm a girl
About me: If I were to be remembered for anything after I die, I would hope to be remembered as a good parent and an advocate for abused and abandoned pets. I don't have a notable career (or even just a job for that matter), I have no great talents, I don't have dozens of friends or an active social life. But, I have three great kids that are my number one priority and parenting them fulltime is the best thing I could ever imagine doing in this world. Second to that is fostering sick and orphaned kittens for our local animal shelter and getting them healthy and ready to be adopted. Nothing else really matters.

This site offers some incredible prices on merchandise. I buy a lot of electronic items from them and have never had a problem. A lot of their items involve sending in rebate slips, but I've never had a rebate rejected. I just recently bought a nice little LCD tv from them that was a great buy and excellent quality.

Valley girl is dead (or should be), like, you know what I mean? It's like nails on a chalkboard, you know? So, like, we should just scratch those three words from the English language, you know?

When I was shopping for digital editing software, it was a toss up between Photoshop Elements and Paint Shop Pro X. Both brands rated very well on various review sites. I tested both and since there was such a close similarity between the two, I went with price over name and chose Paint Shop. I have enjoyed using it and it is quite easy to learn and the tutorials really help. The only drawback is that so many digital editing "how-to" books refer to Elements. But again, since Paint Shop is so similar, it's still easy to figure out.

I had an iguana that I rescued from a school display (they didn't know that the cute little lizard would someday outgrow his 10 gallon aquarium!). He got to be about three feet long and would climb out of his cage so regularly, that eventually we just let him out in the morning and put him back at night. Unfortunately, one day he discovered a small opening in the corner of our pool cage screen and he made a break for it. We never did find him, but, since we life in southwest Florida where temps are warm, chances are good that he's in the trees somewhere.

The nice thing with cats is that I'm not ruled by their bladders/bowels. With my dogs, however, if I'm not home when they need to do their business.....well, let's just say that I make it a point to always get home by the time they need to go out.

Yep, but as far as I know, there has never been a human fatality caused by a house cat. On the other hand, how many children and/or owners have pit bulls killed or mauled? Even one is probably one more than a cat.

Cats simply have a regal air about them and move with a fluidity and grace that few dogs could even begin to muster. That's it: Cats are royalty and know it....dogs are peasants and show it! Ha! Okay, let me duck before I get blasted by the dog lovers. :-)

I volunteer at a local Humane Society and have put more cats into cages or into crates and boxes (yep, those cardboard things with the holes in them like from the pet store) for adoptive owners than I can count. Very, very rarely have I had an uncooperative cat to the point where it took more than one person to do the job or resulted in a bandaid. In my case, that is the exception, not the norm. Maybe I'm just lucky.

When a dog is all over me begging for attention, it just doesn't seem to be as much of a compliment as when a cat actually finds me worthy of its attention.

My personal opinion (and that advocated by shelters and veterinarians) is that cats should not be allowed outside. Period. For their health and safety, they belong as inside pets only. Some may not agree, but if you've ever watched a cat die from poisoning or suffer from some of the viral diseases out there and have to be put down, you might change your mind.
