A Katie girl…


Katie Girl
An unusual, difficult, wild, crazy, passionate woman whom men don’t choose over less interesting and less difficult women.

I was born a Katie girl…I will die a Katie girl.

And I found a man who chose me, in spite of that.


The brave men are out there…the ones willing to take on a Katie girl…



Tabby Lu…

My husband and I wrote this for our sweet little angel after she passed over the rainbow bridge…i had it on an old blog and the tenclub forums. I wanted to share it here so I don’t lose it.


I am Tabby Lu and I died today. It may be a sad thing but do not be sad for me as I had a fufilling, happy life with my family! It began in a shelter where I had decided I was going to pick my new owner. She did not know it but I targeted her the moment she walked in! I followed her around and every time she stopped I stood up and informed her of my selection and our lives began from there!

I have been on adventures too! I flew on a plane across the country to Kentucky, where I got to live with my Great Grandparents. Returned home to Oregon on a LONG car trip but I loved every minute of it! Got to live with Grandma and her fur baby for a time as well! Mom met and married Dad and my human sisser Chyann, and I took them in too! Our family grew over time with the inclusion of the dog, Autzen, and the two boy cats, Eliot and Beans. We all got along fantastic and even played together before I got sick!

My illness, unfortunately, claimed my body before I was able to live out all of my elder years with my family. But the cancer cannot touch my soul or my love for my family, as that will never die! In my final days my parents made sure I was as comfortable as I could be, my furry family members stayed by my side offering me comfort and support, and these acts confirmed what I always knew……….I was not just adopted, I was part of the family!

They may be sad, upset, and angry I was taken too soon, but they need not worry! I live on in their thoughts and hearts never to be forgotten! This portion of my journey may be complete, but my next adventure is just beginning! Mom, Dad, Chyann, Autzen, Eliot, and Beans…………..I love all of you and want you to know I am OK………..I may not be there in the flesh, but I will always be with you!

I am Tabby Lu and I died today, but my family is with me always and will help me on my next adventure!
