    I think a lot of the pics have been posted, but I have met Staci(shais_moma) and Anna (Anna_66) Staci and I have been able to get together twice since then cause she only lives about 1/2 hour from my parents and the dog park is in between to 2. My mom has met her at the Dog park afew other times that I couldn't make it. We are gtting together again next weekend and are looking forward to meeting some more PTers! Course there will be lots of pics to follow!!!

    The "first big official" Pet Talk gathering took place in Texas last spring. Attending were (by username): me, Paul, Aly, Sammi and her husband Mike, SpencertheLion (since gone from this board) Auggie, who stopped by for a day, Aly's babies Lolly and Reese on the canine side, and "SpencertheLion"'s cat by that name and his Miss Vicky made a brief appearance.


    I met Logan, Helen and Sandra(Tatsxxx) one day, when the Southern ladies were up visiting, Paul and I met with Sandra one additional time, and last January, I met Carrie and her children on the windy plains of Stonhenge!

    And last but not least, this summer, Paul and I got to meet JackiesDaisy, DonsPerry and the canine Daisy and Perry!

    I'll have to look for pictures for some of these later!

    I've met lizbud in Indianapolis when she went with me to get Max from Southside Animal Shelter.

    I've met Edwina's Secretary aka Sara, when she came to Fort Wayne to visit her in-laws and she and her husband, her neice and neice's friend (correct me if I'm wrong Sara) came to our house to meet our brood.

    I've met ramanth and Fett (Kimmy and Andy), when they came to Fort Wayne to camp and we spent the weekend running around the city AND they met Mike and me in South Bend for the Pet Refuge garage sale.

    That's about it...I may (if scheduling allows) go to the Pet Talk meeting at the dog park next weekend.

    Finally, Ramanth and I are meeting this afternoon. Everytime we made plans to, something came up. I am so excited to finally meet her and her b/f Andy, and of course Kia.

    I am taking my digital camera and will post pictures of the event tonight when I get home.

    I hope to meet other members from this site in the future. Anyone else near Michigan??

    I haven't met any Pet Talkers YET. -=[ But....I will be meeting Rachel, [countrywolf] and well Amy, if you DO fly down here... I'll be meeting you too. -=D And anyone else who wants to join us, but no one lives that close to me down here... and i doubt anyone would want to drive down this far... But it would be cool to go to the doggie beach down here with a bunch of pooches! Would anyone be interested? Because i was thinking aobut posting a thread aobut it just incase anyone did want to go... i could set up a time and stuff for everyone to meet.

    In the ones I've listed, we talk about the site, generally chat to get to know each other more, and spoil any animals in attendance! In the "first official" one, we had activities planned, including a trip to a Big Cat sanctuary, which was interesting and sad at the same time.

    Can't speak to any of the others ... but they've been fun, every one of them!

    Karen, you forgot Laurie (lbaker) was also there! She was the trouble maker!! haha, just kidding Laurie.

    The Texas PT meeting was fun. We stayed in a hotel Friday - Sunday (sammi and I got there on Thursday evening). We did a variety of things, but the best was gathering in the hotel rooms to talk to each other! We visited an Exotic Feline Sanctuary and had a lot of fun there. We had a picnic by the pool on Friday night and ate at a fun restaurant on Saturday night. Here's a pic of Caesar, one of my favorite big kitties from the sanctuary.

    At one time Wolflady and I worked a block away from one another. We've met for lunch several times: got to know one another, shared stories and photos of our pets, and one she had photos of Purrley's cats that she was preparing to post here. We've also gone on walks and met at her health club.

    We've visited several Cat Shows together -- mainly in the Pleasanton area, once in Santa Clara.

    Three times KrazyAboutKatz came to Cat Shows with me/us.

    KAK and I have visited each other's homes and helped one another take photos of our cats to post here.
