Cat Collector!

Carla as a baby with a kitten I have always loved cats, as a matter of fact my very first words were “kitty kitty”.

I grew up on a small hobby farm, the cats had a good life, cuddling in bed at night and catching mice during the day. Although I am a firm believer now of keeping cats indoors where its safe! I am happy to report our outdoor kitties did lead very long healthy lives, well into their teens. Photo of me as a baby with our kitty, Ginger. Me as a youngster lounging with the kitty gang.

Young Carla & baby Sammy Teen Carla & Sammy My parents always had our cats spayed or neutered as that's SO important. However there was a litter born when I was 3. There were 2 kittens, Rusty & SAMMY, my special cat. Photo of Sammy as a kitten and me age 3 in 1973.

Then me as a teenager, 17 & Sammy age 14 in 1987. Rusty was a great cat too but Sammy was definitely MY girl.

Mark, Carla and Sammy 1990Sammy was such a wonderful companion. I'm an only child, so she was like a sister to me. Sammy lived 18 great years, and will always have a special place in my heart.

I'm thankful that Mark got to meet her, those of you who have pets, know what I mean by this. (Here's the 3 of us Christmas 1990). Sammy passed away spring of 91. Mark never had a cat before, but saw how loving she was and the bond we shared. So it was easy to convince him we needed a cat when we got married. We picked Boomer out at the shelter 2 months after we were married in 1993. Boomer passed away from a blood clot in 2000. We were devastated! I love cats too much to be without them and Boomer made Mark a cat definite cat lover. Iris & Fern arrived in the spring 2001.

Carla's Cat Collecting Addiction!

I love cat items! Whether they be wood, ceramic, metal, whatever material. I like my cat stuff to be interesting. Our home is slowly being taken over with cat items!!

From mats with cats, to tea towels, even a cat tea cozy. I have it all! But I'm still always on the search for a unique cat items. Many things I've even picked up at yard sales. I like getting cat things on our vacations as reminders of our great time.

My collection has expanded, so I now have TWO pages.
