Hollywood Calling
Hollywood knocked at her door with the approval of the audition tapes sent to Ang Lee the casting director of 'The Ice Storm' in 1997. Soon she found herself being cast in the role of Libbets Cassey with Kevin Kline and Sigourney Weaver as her co stars.

Katie Holmes Message Board

Welcome to the Katie Holmes Message Board. Get in touch with Katie Holmes to voice your support, appreciation, or opinion.

Can you imagine how much snail mail and email a celebrity must get? Most simply don't have time to go through all of it and even less time to respond. So, for this reason, we've created this shout-out message board. It's a far simpler way to communicate with your favorite stars and celebrities.

Try to keep your messages short and sweet. No one wants to read your entire life story. We don't know if you'll get a response, but if enough people post a message, these celebrities won't be able to ignore them all.

I am a breeder of the Asian Leopard Bengal Kittens, A beautiful spotted wild looking breed. I sell many, but would like to sell some to the celebrities, because a kitten can be left home alone when you are working all day, and will take the love and attention when you are home. Celebrities work long hours and are gone for days or weeks at a time. Cats are easier to take care of then a dog, because they don't need to be walked twice a day and don't need the attention like a puppy or dog. It is not fair for a dog to be left home alone or indoor all day, where a kitten or cat can go potty in a litter box and can be left alone for hours and will sleep most of the time.

Just consider a kitten over a dog, or both. Bengals love dogs and get along beautifully.
You can go to my website to see just some of my Bengals, but have newborn kitten pictures for you to see upon request. They are adorable, but not able to leave until they are 8 or 9 weeks old.

If interested or would like to see some pictures of the newborn leopard spotted bengal kittens go to www.bengalbabies.org.
Thanks,
Carrie Donahue

Hi there,
I'm inspired by you and the journey you have made to get where you are.

Katie...Get out of Scientology while you still can. It is a cult and science fiction.

Think about it. "...a human is an immortal alien spiritual being, termed a thetan, that is trapped on planet Earth in a physical body. Hubbard described these "thetans" in "Space Opera" cosmogony. The thetan has had innumerable past lives and it is accepted in Scientology that lives preceding the thetan's arrival on Earth lived in extraterrestrial cultures". How can anyone believe this garbage? It's a money making cult from a science fiction writer.

Please, please get our before it's too late!
