The Grand Pooba Cast

Alex, Al, Albert, Bert, My former hubster:

My former husband is currently living in Arizona to attending law school. We were divorced on June 7th, 2010. More on that story here.


Our first furry child, he is a tabby cat who is almost 9 years old. He loves to sleep and eat. He also loves to sleep and eat. He is perfectly content with his over weight body type and is a very spoiled kitty. He has to have filtered water with ice served to him on the counter every morning, day and night. He is the dominant kitty of the house and his gay lover is his younger brother Smokey, they have been gaying it up now for 6 years.


Our third furry child, he is a black and white cat who is our youngest at 6 years old. Like his gay lover Boomhower, he loves to eat and sleep. He also likes to talk but mostly to his dad. His previous owners accidentally ran over him and took him to the Vet Clinic but abandoned him because they didn’t want to pay for his surgery. He spent many months meowing to my former husband every night while he worked so they formed a very tight bond and Alex just had to bring him home. Smokey is definitely a daddy’s boy and is very vocal in letting me know that. He is the strangest cat I have ever met, he purrs ALL THE TIME even when Alex flicks him in the nose. He likes to do cat back flips off of Alex’s lap and his favorite thing to do is to lie on Alex’s man parts, which is very painful for Alex given Smokey’s hefty frame.

Dozer was our second furry child, he was a black Great Dane who died when he was 8 years old. He was an old man in Great Dane years and sporte the cutest gray goatee, he was one lanky dog and I’ve been told that he looked mostly like me, I think it’s probably his black fur. He was a big baby who couldn’t be away from his mommy for more than a day without pooping himself silly! He loved wrestling with his dad and jogging with his mom. He loved his “babies” who are his little stuffed animals that he would carry around in his mouth and cleans their fur with his teeth. He had also been known to burry his bones in the house, mostly in the corners of the room using his head to push imaginary dirt over top of the bone. He was also deathly afraid of balloons, among many many other objects like ceiling fans. I will always miss my scared little sweetheart! You can read about Dozer's death here.


Bain was our fourth furry child who past away last summer at 3 years old. He was a beautiful fawn Mastiff and had the sweetest personality I have ever encountered in a dog. His previous owners brought him to the clinic because he had Parvo but they couldn’t pay for his treatments so they agreed to give him up. We were very lucky to be able to bring him into our home. He was so shy and insecure when he first came to us, we suspect there was some abuse in his past because he would cower away from humans. After many weeks of training he finally came out of his shell and truly enjoyed life tagging along with his bigger brother Dozer. You can read about how he died here. I will always miss my big boy!

I'd love to hear from you!


I’m a 29 year old recently divorced, career woman, aunt, and wannabe mother. I was married to my former spouse for eight years before we divorced but we've managed to stay really good friends. To read more about that click here.

I graduated in 2005 with a bachelor’s degree in Accounting from the University of Utah and now I am a Senior Accountant and recently turned supervisor for a gold mining company. I love my job. I decided to go back to school to get my master's degree in accounting. I'm loving school and hating the homework :o)

I got my lovely nickname from the former spouse, he calls me Grand Pooba (among other things) which is where the name of my blog derived. I recently moved into a townhouse in Salt Lake City with my two cats. Yep, I am officially the cat lady.

Who am I? I am a very sarcastic, laid back blonde who loves to eat cereal and take naps. I get excited over the little things and think worrying is a waste of time. I hate shopping, I’d rather gouge my eyes out then step foot in a mall. I am way too trusting in people, yes I'm a sucker. For everything.

I'm a recovering Mormon. I grew up in an LDS home and was completely devoted to my religion, that is until I finally started thinking for myself and realized I didn't believe in the foundation of the church and it's beliefs. I have my own opinions and beliefs and by removing my name from the church's records I found "ME" in the process. Most of my family is still Mormon and I'm sure they think I'm going to hell, but they love me anyway!

Interests of mine are reading, baking, playing the piano, ballet, dancing, wine, and I'm a huge fan of movies. I occasionally go snow skiing, I love boating and wake boarding whenever I get the opportunity, and my favorite thing to do, besides sleeping, is laying out in the sun and reading a book. I’m a big kid when it comes to having fun and as I start this new chapter in my life I've decided to make the best of it and just enjoy being single and living on my own.

Okay, it's past midnight and I'm starving. Cake for a midnight snack is pretty healthy right? I mean, we all need a few carbs to keep our energy up. Plus I'm sure there's some protein and dairy in there somewhere.

Okay, peace out.
