I have a passion for animals. Besides taking in abandoned cats, I've raised a kitten from a few days old and have rescued a number of feral cats.

Food: turkey dinner, mixed greens salad, scrambled eggs (not too dry, not too runny – moist but fluffy), pizza, fruit juices, ice in most drinks (I really like ice), French green beans, white chocolate macadamia nutcookies, coconut mint chocolate chip ice cream, Italian sub sandwiches, my own carrot cake.
I've had my share of gourmet and ethnic fare, expensive restaurants in NYC and elsewhere, but given the choice, I prefer simple down-home cuisine. I'm blessed to enjoy what I cook and bake.
I'm open-minded and not set on a particular physical "type," but do like curvy women, girls-next-door, and girls with glasses.
