Meet the Cat

I left this blank for quite a while because I wanted to write something so awe-inspiringly awesome that people would bookmark this page.  Then I figured, if I did that, then this page would remain blank forever. So I decided to just write something.


I just realized that I don't really know what to write.


I think I'll just do this interview style.

So, "Why Katnaper's Den?"  

Way back when the internet was young (like the 90's) I had chosen 'katnaper' as my online name.  I won't go on about why because it's been a while and I have forgotten the original reason.  I think maybe, it has something to do with age. That or short term memory loss.  All I know is I like cats and I like taking catnaps.  So maybe that was why?  Or maybe I wanted a cat so much I wanted to cat-nap one?  Like I said, my memory is blurry on that one. Maybe I should have just chosen a different name like maybe relating to elephants that way I wouldn't forget. Too late though.  The name's stuck. Besides I can't draw elephants. So since I'm katnaper, it made sense to name this 'katnaper's den.' 'Nuff said. Next question please.

So, who is katnaper?

In real life, Katnaper is a working Mom of two kids, dubbed 'Kiddo' and 'Kidlet' respectively.  Both girls with boy nicknames.  Someday, I'll post a picture of them together here.  My oldest, Kiddo, is 10 and my youngest, Kidlet is 4. She has autism.  I recently decided that in order to keep track of things, I'd write about her diagnosis among other things.

Also, IRL,  I'm a nurse.  Yeah.  My poor kids.  Having a mother in the medical profession is tough. We're not the most sympathetic lot you know, Florence Nightingale regardless.  You have to actually be bleeding copious amounts of blood before its considered an emergency in my house.  That or I freak out with worry because I get an attack of hypochondria since 'I know' what it might just turn out to be. Bleeding I can handle.  Everything else, I go crazy.

What else do I do?

I craft.  I sew. I bake.  I cook.  I make bento.  I read books. I watch anime.  I collect stuff. I also take pictures. Mostly of my Kidlet or the stuff I make, cook, bake. Occassionally (not so much lately) its of my dolls.  Did I mention I collect dolls?  Yes.  Anime style Dollfie Dream dolls and Resin Ball-jointed dolls.  They're my muse(s) and help inspire me to learn to take pictures and write stories. They also feed the otaku in me. You heard that right.  I'm one of those.  My husband is another. He collects and builds model robots.  I collect dolls, anime figures and manga. We're both anime fans and dream of one day going to Japan and just splurging on Gunpla and Dollfies.  We're taking the kiddies when we do because Kiddo is growing to be just like us and Kidlet loves dolls.  Maybe its genetic?

I think that's all I can say about myself so far.  If you're one of those who read this far.  Thank you.  I hope I didn't bore you to tears.  If I did, well at least its over now, right?

What?  You expected me to apologize?


Sorry. But I won't.

I'm actually a cat you see and we're never sorry.

Well, unless maybe you're bleeding copious amounts of blood in which case I'd say dial 911.

Otherwise, no.

Peace! :)
