I have collections of stuff like coins, silver and antique linens. I'm an animal lover, especially cats and elephants (would own one if I could), hence my username. Reading, learning new things and writing are passions of mine. I'm into gardening, making jewelry, sewing and almost every style of music. I have Crohn's Disease and am writing a book about my experiences. I can wiggle my ears and move my baby toes without moving the others.
