This is Gidgette. She’s an almost 10 year old shorthair mixed breed (AKA “a mutt”). I adopted her when I lived in South Korea.
I already had one kitty (you’ll meet her soon). I went to the vet and saw this adorable little girl. After talking with the vet for a few minutes, he told me that he was going to put her to sleep the next day. Nobody wanted her because she wasn’t “perfect “. She had a tiny head and crossed eyes.
I couldn’t let such a precious little thing be put to sleep. I immediately told the vet I would adopt her. From that moment on, she was my baby.
I didn’t know what to name her. I posted a picture of her looking at my laptop on Facebook. A friend told me that I should call her Inspector Gadget. But I didn’t think that name quite fit her. But Gidgette did. I described her as a cross between a gadget and a widget. And that became her name.
My name is Kathryn. I live in suburban Cleveland. I have 2 cats, who are my kids. I work in early childhood education, specializing in infants at a local childcare center. I’ve also worked with preschoolers and school aged kids there. I used to be an ESL teacher in South Korea.
I love to bake. My coworkers get to be my taste testers. I enjoy coloring, and I even participate in a coloring Meet Up group. I’m a fan of all kinds of music, but country is my favorite. I started taking a tap class at a local dance studio. Ginger Rogers, I’m not. But I’m holding my own after *mumble years* away from it.
My kitties, Gidgette and Ivory, are my favorite models for my photography. I play around with photo editors to create what I call “Works of Art”. I’m not very good at it, but I do it anyway.
