About me
Who am I? I'm a wife, mother, nurse.

I'm a feral cat trapper and kitten rescuer. I do catch, spay/neuter and release on those feral cats. I have 6 cats myself, 2 of them feral kittens that I have trapped. I have a photo album of all the cats/kittens that I have trapped. The last cat to come live here was a dumped abused cat with a necrotic tail. I trapped him, realized that he wasn't feral, paid to have him fixed and his tail amputated, and brought him to live at my house. He's slowly coming out of his shell.

I'm also an avid birdwatcher, and my husband and I belong to The Amazona Society, a non-profit parrot fanciers group who supports Amazon parrot conservation in the wild. The Amazona Society has offered tours to various parts of Central America to see how our money has been spent, and also for us to see the various conservation projects that are in place there. We've been to Costa Rica twice and Panama once. We also go at least twice a year down to south Texas, which is a haven for birders who want to see tropical and neotropical birds.  You can check out the photo albums of my trips here.

We also own a Double Yellowheaded Amazon parrot named Buddy. We blame him for our insane junkets out to look at birds in the rainforest. We recently bought a baby Scarlet Macaw we named "Renaldo"  but he gets called Randy. My husband I thought we were getting a little bit of Costa Rica with that Scarlet Macaw, but it turned out that Randy is a Bolivian sub-species. So now we have a piece of Bolivia in the den.

I'm friendly, outgoing, and funny. My life is pretty much an open book, warts and all. We live and we learn...and I'm still learning.

Wild Fact About Me If I had my druthers, I'd be in Costa Rica right now.
My Philosophy If each of us did a little something to make our own little corner of the world better, the world would be a better place.
What Gives Me Hope The younger generation is ecologically aware, even if they aren't all politically active.
If I were Mayor, I'd make the world a better place by Encourage bipartisan behavior and discourage partisan politics.
What/who changed my life and why Strangely enough, what has changed my life is owning my pet parrot, Buddy. Because of him, I now spend money going to exotic places to look at parrots fly free. I now support parrot conservation projects. It's led me into feral cat trapping to get them spayed and neutered, and to find homes for the trapped kittens. That silly bird has changed my life in ways that I never envisioned when I got him.
