Tracey shows for fun and hopes and prays that her babies will do well; at the same time, she is careful not to place expectations on her cats or kittens. So, when Holy was a kitten, she never anticipated the success he would have in the show ring.

Up Close and Purr-sonal
Welcome to the new Cat Talk series "Up Close and Purr-sonal." While we might know what someone breeds and shows, we often have no idea about what their life and interests are outside of the show hall. And we are surprised at what we are learning about them as well! Do you have a recommendation for someone to interview? Let us know! Email Teresa Keiger at email@example.com.

My Special Cat
Most of us have had that special cat—a heart cat with whom we had a deep connection. It may have been the cat we had as a child, or the one that saw us through a troubled time, or one with whom we bonded as we exhibited at cat shows. Whether the cat found us or we sought it out, those connections cannot be denied. These are the stories of some of those special cats and what they mean or meant to us.
Names. Oh, what an important choice in the life of cat! It is how a cat will be known in the show rings and in daily life. A name can alternate between words of delight or new forms of cursing (especially in this case!). Each name tells a story and this is the story of Toxicate Holy $#&@*

BEHIND THE SCENES! Scene Heard
BACK IN BUSINESS “The first thing I did was jump for joy!” reports Kate Linder (Esther, Y&R) of showing up for work after months of sheltering in place. “I couldn’t wait to bring Esther to life again. I’m so thrilled to be back and so proud of our show. Seeing the crew was very emotional. It was wonderful to see people, even from far away, and to know that they are well. My first instinct was to hug everyone, which of course we can’t do. Everyone has worked extremely hard to make sure we all stay safe.” While production was shut down, “I stayed in touch with Tracey Bregman [Lauren], Jess Walton [Jill] and Liz Hendrickson [Chloe],” and Linder was over the moon that her first scene was with Greg Rikaart (Kevin). “It felt great to be on set again and working with Greg was wonderful,” she enthuses. “It was the first time I had seen him in five months. We spent a lot of time running lines and catching up. I was so happy to see that he was well. Liz couldn’t be there physically, but I still felt her presence and look forward to the day that we are all together again.”
