Location: Palm Beach County, Florida, United States

Recently have been told I look like Mary Ann from Gilligan's Island. I hadn't heard that in years, but that is a good place to start as to what I look like, although she had a better bod. I have three boys and have been married for 13 years. Born of a Navy family, in Hawaii, one Mom, one Dad, one sister and one brother. The eldest of three children. BS in Applied Mathematics. Consider Pensacola my home town although I moved every 2-3 years of my life growing up. Currently work in the aerospace industry in an engineering position while being a Mom. Of Celtic heritage and very proud of it.

Awaiting a cat shot...

So tell me, do all cats sound like small jet engines? All night long while I sleep, I hear this low rumble next to me. I've heard about purring, but this, this seems to emanate from every fur follicle in her body. I'm half expecting to find this energy launch the damn bed into orbit.

Heh. Aircraft carrier humor :-)

Some cats are whisper quiet, others can be mistaken for a thunderstorm.

Ahhh! I was wondering if anyone would get that, but suspected you would. :) I think That 1 Guy may have. He was a Marine.

I may actually sleep tonight without that furry noisemaker. Do you know, she actually used me as a launch pad in the middle of the night? I get better sleep with three kids.

Oh you slept great along side Espy! She simulates the peaceful sound inside a womb. And by the way, she misses you. She slept on your side last night.

Wha? Are you kidding? I guarantee you that Mom did not rumble when we were in utero. Well, maybe when she ate too much greasy food, but I don't think there was anything 'peaceful' about that!

Each kitty has a different purr. Our Persian, Gandalf, purrs if you look at him from a across the room, and you can hear it, he is so loud.

Barnacle has a much quiter purr, she likes to talk to people, especially if she wants something.

Merriwether only purrs when he has managed to get under the covers to snuggle.

When I travel, I miss those little purring, whirring furry critters when I try to sleep in a cold, hard hotel bed.
