Skeezix. My inside cat, Littlestuff died 9/21/06. I've read all of the Cat Who books. I love classical music but enjoy other
types too. Like playing games on my computer.

My name is Carla. I was born December 6,1955. My pen-name is Rene' Poundstone. My email
handle is Catmama. I am single. I work at a large trauma center as a Sr Rehab aide/administrative assistant in
the Rehabilation office in Austin,Texas. I have work there 13 years and about 1 month. I have two cats Dustin who I
cannot remember but I think he is about 14--he is a tabbey-point siamese. His little sister is six and her name is Madomoselle
Adelle Whispers. She is long-haired and black and white. She is a stray but possibly a Raggamuffin. I like to
read mysteries (particularily animal mysteries). I like to write. I enjoyed communicating with my cat-loving friends.
At one time I enjoyed gardening (I ike all flowers but I love roses-particularily pale pink ones), going to museums(my dream
is to go to the Smithsonian), and zoos.

27 years old from San Antonio, Texas
Nancy from Oklahoma.
I'm 50 years old and originally from Massachusetts. My husband is retired Army
and that's how we ended up in Oklahoma at Fort Sill. I work for the Army as the post media chief. I have two grown
children; a son who is a West Point graduate (proud mom talking) deployed to Iraq and now works for Dell Computers in Austin,
Texas. My daughter is multihandicapped and lives nearby with a woman who takes care of her. She is spoiled rotten
but happy. My husband and I are involved with community theater both on and back stage. I am an avid reader and
found the Cat Who books through a friend.
Born in upstate NY, I was a child of depression era parents. Grew up in a small town amongst the Catskill
Mountains where the wedding of the Delaware River waters met; Hancock was its name. Received my first degree in Humanities at Jamestown Community College, attended Fredonia State (not
my thing), so I became a globe trotter. Lived in Thailand
as a military dependent. Went into the USAF and lived in Frankfort, Germany. While there I visited Holland, Belgium, France, East
Germany, and Switzerland.
Finished my BS with U. of
MD while in the Air Force in Germany. After
living the Air Force I worked in the mental health services field and as a teacher. I taught all kinds of subjects from
ages 3-65. Picked up my Masters in Ed (curriculum and instruction) from UOP online. What a waste of time that was.
Left teaching for almost a year to drive team
with my husband, who is French Canadian and Ojibwa. Then I left the otr stuff to have treatments at the VA. Gastric Bypass
took place in late Nov. I have lost nearly 60 lbs since last summer. Now I exercise, substitute teach, and write. Several
novels are in progress and I hope (if my writing samples are good enough) to be accepted by Wilkes U, for another
masters; this time in Creative Writing (focus fiction and screenwriting).
As for the family, I told
you about my husband, Ray. I also have 5 grown kids and 4 grandchildren. My youngest daughter is presently at Ft Jackson in
Army Basic Training. When she finishes there, she will go to health tech classes for 4 months and then onto the Middle East to serve as a Combat Medic. My middle daughter is an Active Reservist stationed in Texas. My oldest daughter wanted to be a dog handler with the USAF
but lost her dream when she suffered a severe car accident. She is now on full disability. Oldest son is an
Electrical Engineer and US Army Vet. He served in Granada and Bosnia. Youngest son, with genius IQ, believe it or not, lived on the west coast
and is still trying to find his niche.
Still throughout all of this, my love
of the Cat Who series has brought me tranquility and a pause in the daily trials I face. The characters are so colorful and
the setting make me want to move up there. I also like photography, as you can see on my album. Matching mismatched
cups and saucers is an odd hobby, but it amuses me as well. I write lots of poetry and publish on Poetry.com.
I don't like meat much since the bypass,
but I do like teas, especially blueberry and blackberry. Sometimes, things that normally taste good taste reall wierd
after having a bypass. Like bread- it only tastes like sticky dough now and hamburgers like grease. Thank goodness tomatoes
still taste decent. So much for my babbling on and on. Maura
