My husband Ed and I are avid Wild Blue Cats and Lauri Cross fans, an Air Force family, are in our 27th home and have loved every one. Well, maybe not the trailer in Selma, Alabama but we had lots of friends and fun. It is also the place where I got my first kitten along with a puppy. Fast forward to the late 90’s, when we moved to Japan taking 2 cats and a dog. It was there that we met Lauri Cross. We parted ways for a while and then she and Ed were stationed at Peterson together. The 3 of us ran The Race for the Cure at the Academy every year and enjoyed countless social events together. Lauri had a constant theme—saving animals. Ed and I moved to Arlington, VA but came back here for Fancy Feasts to support the animals, WBC and Lauri. And, by the way, back to the first dinner, Teddy was the WBC Ambassador. I am thankful to be back in CO where I am able to volunteer at the kitten fairs. My journey has come full circle.
