My Story

I had a cat in 2001 that was named Fuzzybutt.   (Don’t look at me, he came with that name from the shelter!)  He was a cute and loveable, though slightly quirky kitty.

I met a guy online (one of the few I didn’t meet on match.com – we met in EverQuest) and he agreed to move me to Orlando – but the cat had to go.   Being in a bad financial situation and needing to move, I made the tough decision to give Fuzzybutt to some friends.

Fast-forward past the ill-fated relationship with EverQuest guy.  I have two lovely kitties – DJ and Mr. P. – who are my babies.  I’m not a crazy cat lady, but I love my boys.  (And they love my undergarments!)

EverQuest guy? He’s married now… and guess what?

He and his wife have a cat.
