The 'covergirl':batting: of the last-ever print edition of DIMZ passed away:( this afternoon. www.catay.com was a very important early photoessay website that had fresh content weekly for a number of years beginning a decade-and-a-half ago. Really one of the online pioneers:bow: giving us all content from a witty and brilliant graphic designer! The site featured an SSBBW's unfiltered POV which jumped thru that 'funny' hoop we all had to jump thru back then... enabling her subsequent emulators:blush: to skip the jump and aim for the Mainstream.:kiss2: http://www.catay.com

The great white north, eh?
That is shattering news. Cat was always so vibrantly herself that it is hard to imagine her stopped.

My condolences to all who knew her personally.

This is such sad, sad news. She was such a beautiful, bright light in the world. Rest in Peace, Cat.

Cat was an online friend to both me and Sandie for many years, and she was one of the first to send her condolences to me last year when I lost Sandie. Her websites did so much to bring humor into the world and she helped raise so many women's self-esteem through her example. The world was a better place because Cat was in it, and she will be missed.

I didn't know her personally, but I loved everything she did. She always had the most delightful sense of humor and a sharp eye as a photographer. I am so sad to hear about her passing. I hope her friends and loved ones soon find peace in a world without her.

Much love and respect, Cat. You were an original in more ways than one.

So sad to loose someone of Cat's calibre. Funny, sweet of heart and kind of spirit, she had the most expressive of smiles. We will miss this happy girl. Condolence to her family.

Banned from facebook,
Cat was a force to be admired. She was one of the first fat girls I saw that people admired!!! She wore what she wanted to. She had fabulous pictures that she posted (many she created herself BEFORE we had all this high tech computer help). She created costumes for herself. She posted these online for the world to see. I remember her displaying her beautiful body flying thru the air or being a goddess on a column.

She traveled everywhere and posted those pictures for us to see. I never got a chance to meet in person but we talked thru the internet. She always had time for her "fans". Cat was gracious and bawdy. I am sorry her light burned out so soon but that happens sometimes when the fire is hot and bright.

Cat has a place in my book of role models and trail blazers for fat women. She was instrumental in making the words "fat woman" something I did not have to fear. I could hold my head up thanks to that cute, dancing, butterfly in her pics wearing a catsuit. She was beautiful, inside and out. Well done my dear. Rest in peace until we meet again in heaven.

This is very sad for me too. She got my attention all the way back when I surfed onto what was then Pencomputing.com/members/dimensionsmagazine/forums... Or something like that.

I was in college back then and trying to make sense of why I liked curves more than the hardbodies that is celebrated in magazine. Cat was one of the many stand up people then that helped me become comfortable in my skin now

Now as we are getting older and the ones who are passing away I am beginning to worry about the love of my life and if I should be looking at specific things before it becomes to late. If anyone is brave enough (with family's consent of course) to share what has happened either here or by PM I would be grateful.

I believe the members we have lost would love reply to this post in a thoughtful and caring way. Rest in peace Cat, and all, and peace to everyone here

My condolences to her friends and family.

On a mod note, I thought that Cat's passing was deserving of its own thread here as well a mention in the obituary thread. Hope nobody minds this.

Thank you for link, Conrad. What a nice obituary. She deserved every word. The world will miss her bright light. I can't help but think of her up in heaven, spreading her creative soul in fun and clever ways. She was taken from earth too soon, but I'm sure her light shines just as brightly in heaven. It is almost Halloween. I'm sure she is up to some cute mischief!
