    Let Me Introduce Myself

    Hi, first I want to say that I've just read through all of the introductions here and I think that this is a great idea so we can get to know each other a little better. I'd like to welcome all of the newcomers and I've enjoyed getting to know the regular PT people better too.

    Most of you should already know me from the catside since I've been here for quite a while. My name is Tracey and I'm 43 years old. I was born in Philadelphia,PA but grew up in Greenville,S.C. and now I live in Santa Clara,CA. I'm a dental technician but would much rather be working with animals. Some of my hobbies include photography, sewing, cat shows or anything cat related, listening to music, and watching movies. I'm usually quiet and shy around people that I don't know very well but I can talk to any one about cats all day long. I don't have any children and I've never been married so my cats mean everything to me. I'm currently owned by 4 male cats and 1 female cat. Here are some pictures of them.


    This is Storm and he's 10 years old and is the first cat that I've owned by myself. He's a DLH blue grey cat and I adopted him when he was 1 year old from my local Humane Society.


    This is Sunny and he'll be 6 years old in late August. He's an Aby mix and I adopted him from a local rescue group when he was 8 months old.


    This is Sky and he'll be 4 years old in early June. He's a Norewegian Forest Cat and Siamese Mix. I adopted him from the Humane Society when I was at a cat show and he was 1 year old at the time.


    This is Starr and he'll be 1 on March 22nd. He's a Flamepoint Siamese Mix. I adopted him from a rescue group when he was around 5 months old.


    This is my only girl Pearl. She'll be 1 on May 22nd. She's a Lynx Point Siamese Mix. I adopted her from another PT person who rescued her in Arizona when she was around 3 months old.

    Last but not least, here's a picture of my RB Pepper. I still had him when I first joined PT but he became very ill so I had to have him put to sleep. He lived to be almost 6 years old and I still miss him very much. PT really helped me get through this difficult time in my life.


    I'd also like to say that I'm very addicted to PT and I'm so glad that Karen and Paul created such a wonderful website for animal lovers.
    Owned by Sky, Pearl, Ziggy Stardust, Alani, Blaze, Colby, Finnegan, and Summer.

    RB Pepper 3/17/97- 2/3/03 RIP Sweet Pepper
    RB Starr 3/22/05- 7/1/09 RIP Sweet Starr

    RB Storm 1/11/96- 8/2/12 RIP Sweet Storm

    I did not know you were from Philly! And I did not know you are a dental technician. But I DO know those sweet kitties!

    Hi! My name is Donna and I live in Connecticut. I was born and raised here. I just turned 53 and am a freelance writer.

    I am owned by 4 goofballs with 4 legs All have fur 'cept for one.

    This is Shortiegirl. She is going to be 7 years old and was rescued from a bad breeder who kept her in a cage for the first year of her life. Until I met her at a cat show, she had never had any human or feline contact and was VERY withdrawn. She came down with pyometria and had to be spayed. Since her breeder had no use for her anymore, because she couldn't have babies, she was going to have her euthanized. I took her. It was love at first sight.



    Next is Mollie Rose, aka the Divine Miss "M", Rosie, Posie, etc. She is 12 years old and was my very first cat. She was born on the farm of the Bill Wilson House (Bill W as he is referred to was the co-founder of AA).



    This blue-eyed beauty is Maya Linn (named after the woman who designed the Vietnam Wall). Although Mollie Rose is the Matriarch of the clan, Maya Linn is the Alpha female of the crew. She was rescued from the San Juan in Puerto Rico along with her mama and brother. She's an award winning cat in the Household Pet division.




    And last, but CERTAINLY not least is MooShoo. He is a hairless (Sphynx) cat who was rescued from yet another bad breeder, who failed to treat a herpes virus in his eyes, causing scar tissue to form over his corneas, which rendered him to be almost completely blind. He was rescued along with 4 other littermates all with herpes in their eyes. MooShoo and one other littermate, Pixel, are the only two that survived. All the other Sphynxes died from FIP. MooShoo is such a cool cat. He keeps me warm at night.



    This is RB Casey (Bubba Dude). He was the love of my life and I miss him everyday of my life.


    Rest In Peace Casey (Bubba Dude) Your paw print will remain on my heart forever. 12/02
    Mollie Rose, you were there for me through good times and in bad, from the beginning.Your passing will leave a hole in my heart.We will be together "One Fine Day". 1994-2009
    MooShoo,you left me too soon.I wasn't ready.Know that you were my soulmate and have left me broken hearted.I loved you like no other. 1999 - 2010See you again "ONE FINE DAY"
    Maya Linn, my heart is broken. The day your beautiful blue eyes went blind was the worst day of my life.I only wish I could've done something.I'll miss your "premium" purr and our little "conversations". 1997-2013 See you again "ONE FINE DAY"
