About meBook lovers. Cat lovers. Married for 16 years, together for 20. Currently share our home with 6 cats and our allergies. His favorite author is Ray Bradbury. My favorite author is Connie Willis. Addicted to all things British, including chocolate-covered Hobnobs. Happy to find this site, but really want one of those scanner gizmos 'cause I'm tired of typing in ISBNs'!

Update: Got a Cue Cat for my anniversary present! Whee!! What fun. Makes me wish I had more books.

Update 2! We have a new critter... a tuxedo kitten named Mike Meowski bringing the cat population up to eleven.

Update Three: There are currently six cats in residence: Oreo, Cappa, Ms. Adorable Dearheart, Sherpa, Jitterbug and Mikey Meowski.

Update 9000: As of January 2014, there are seven cats in residence and two foster kittens.

UPDATE January 2016: Nine cats currently in residence, including Cappa who celebrated his 21rst birthday in 2015.

UPDATE May 2018: I just realized how long it has been since I did one of these updates. Sadly, the last few years have not been kind to our cat population. We lost Cappa and Oreo in January 2017, not surprising as they were senior citizens. But we also lost Mikey just two months ago from surgery complications. It's not fair; he was only ten. Current kitties in residence: Harry, Yum Yum, Jitterbug, Ms. Adorable DearHeart (SPIKE) and Sherpa.
