About Me

11/29/21 UPDATE: Guys, I just got selected today as a juror in a murder trial and they're estimating 3 weeks. PLUS I've still got holiday catsitting on top of it AND an ill family member I'm helping care for on top of it. Life is NUTS right now. I'm still finding a few minutes in evenings to get swaps out, but my ratings will probably be LATE. I will rate as I can. Thank you!!


Me and my kids!

You can search throughout the entire universe for someone who is more deserving of your love and affection than you are yourself, and that person is not to be found anywhere. You yourself, as much as anybody in the entire universe deserve your love and affection." - Buddha

The Fur Kids

I sometimes join cat swaps, so if you are wanting or needing to get something for my cats, here is a little bio on them!


Tillie

This love came to me in October 2015, her name is Tillie and she is my blind, calico beauty. She had her eyes removed after her rescue due to reversed lenses and major ocular pressure that caused her a lot of pain. Her likes are:
-Paper Ball Toys
-Mylar Balls
-Really any small toy she can carry or bat around
-Those colored balls with colored tinsel -- she is OBSESSED
-Freeze-Dried Chicken Treats. Literally the only treat she will eat.

Pippi
Miss Pippi showed up in my yard when I got home from work and catsitting on September 30, 2016. I feed about 4 strays that come and go but they're all skittish and 'Pippi' walked right up to me. I brought her inside to keep her safe until an owner was found, except we gave it a week and nobody ever claimed her. She was vetted and chipped and determined to likely be homeless. She's very cuddly and friendly, and also a troublemaker. She thinks she's the alpha in the house and loves to tell her siblings that she's the boss.
-She LOVES very potent/strong-smelling catnip toys. Think the YEOWW! brand, or similar.
-Preferred treats are Whisker Lickins, Temptations or Friskies!

Bea
Once I lost my beloved Tortie Bella in December 2016, I decided my life was incomplete without a tortie in it. Those who have ever been blessed to love one will know exactly what I mean. So I asked my local animal rescue friends and turns out that Tillie's foster mom had this tortie, named Bella Knight. "Bella" was out on a farm and raised many litters of kittens, then was rescued and 'dried up' but at one point was introduced to some kittens and started producing milk again. I decided to name her Bea as an homage to my "Queen B--Bella." She's an absolute sweetheart, a chatter box and even wags her tail like a dog. She loves boxes and the early evening when the sun hits the crystal in the window and she can chase the rainbows.
-She loves any bouncy ball toy.
-Bea loves cat treats. She doesn't have a preference.

In April 2017, my mom decided to foster a group of 4 baby kittens. She bottle fed them for months and one of them was just not thriving. It was believed she wouldn't make it. I decided then and there, if she pulled through, I would adopt her. She got some fluids and ended up pulling through and of course I followed through on my promise and brought her home. She's now our little Penelope (Penny). She's got attitude, but we love her for it. She loves watching the birds and squirrels in the window and bugging mom while she's trying to eat.

-Her favorite toys are felt pompom balls and pipe cleaners. I shudder to think how many are currently under my fridge.
-She also loves any other type of ball/toy she can carry and bat around!
-Also catnip!

Meet my 5th kitty. I'm most definitely in crazy cat lady territory now, but I always said I had room for a blind kitty if one came along...and here he is...
Meet Hank. He came into a local rescue in early 2018, alone and battling a severe eye infection in both eyes. They tried so hard to save his eyes, but they were unsuccessful and he had surgery to remove them. He ended up in a foster home of a lady I catsit for on occasion and since she knew I had a blind cat, she contacted me for pointers. I went to meet him and it was a done deal after that. He's making great progress! When he went in to get fixed, found out he was cryptorchid so had surgery to fix that. In his short life, he's been diagnosed with Stomatitis and had to have surgery twice to remove teeth, he'll eventually have them all removed but are just taking them out as needed. And now we found out he has asthma, but he's been wonderful with his inhaler! This poor boy has had a rough start, with 4 surgeries before he was 2!, but he's so insanely happy and sweet and I LOVE him immensely.
-Hank loves to play with the 'ball on track' toys.
-He loves bouncy balls and this feathery bumblebee toy.
-For treats he seems to prefer Friskies!

Recipes

Another thing I would love is handwritten recipes from people! I love fun recipe cards and have a recipe box. I don't have old recipes from family, so am attempting to create my own.

If you want to send me a handwritten recipe with a swap, here are some likes and dislikes!

Absolutely do not eat:
-Beef (but can substitute ground turkey for recipes)
-Pork
-Onions (but can easily omit in most things!)
-I am diabetic, so try to limit my carbs and sweets, but I also LOVE carbs and sweets, so will welcome those recipes!

Things I love:
-Again, carbs/sweets, to my detriment!
-KETO versions of things
-I do eat some poultry (chicken/turkey) and love fish (LOVE Shrimp)! but I have dabbled in Vegetarian, as I'm really not a huge fan of meat. -Desserts.... I LOVE trying new desserts
-Casseroles/Hot Dish
-I'm not very experimental, I like to keep things simple and not a lot of ingredients! I'm also very busy, so I love things that are quick and easy or that I can prep ahead and throw in the oven after a long day!

I have an Instapot and AirFryer and always looking for new ways to utilize both!

Looking for a rating?

If you sent me a swap and haven't seen a rating yet, please don't hound/message me.

I work 60-80 hours a week. Sometimes I don't get to ratings right away and will do it in one group once or twice a week. I don't just rate a 1 without messaging first, so if I notice it's been a while and the swap hasn't arrived, I will message you and let you know. If then I don't hear back, I will then rate accordingly.

But I always rate, just not every single day.
