Cathy Kates

Hi y'all, thanks for checking out my bio! I grew up in the country community of Wrenshall, attended church in Carlton and worked in Cloquet. I adore and respect my family. My husband and I laugh and run together (well, I jog). My daughter is in her final year of college and keeps me young and our dog Bauer is an overactive Schnauzer. (he keeps me on my toes!) I love shoes, Asian food, and trying new recipes. My dream (at the moment) is to be on the Big Bang Theory or the Ellen Show. I have been in broadcasting for 18 years and thank you for your friendship and waking up to laugh with Ken, me and the Breakfast Club. ~Peace, Love & Hugs

Cathy Kates Adds Excitement To Her Bathroom [VIDEO]

Not that my bathroom needs any more excitement, but when I saw the video for something that claimed to light my toilet up at night, I was interested.  No more turning the lights on in the middle of the night to go to the bathroom.  No more discussions on why you can't hit the hole in the middle of the night (not me).  It's a great potty training tool!
