What can I say. This priestess of Bast is one of my heroines.
I find it so strange that she is gone right after I was reading about my totems again, and she was mentioned, I hear a version of "Santa Baby", and I receive a form of the Goddess Bast as a gift this holiday, in honour of my rebirth.
I am saddened and devastated that she is gone.
You will be missed by this fellow feline.
Eartha Kitt, sultry singer and dancer, dies at 81
By POLLY ANDERSON – 12 minutes ago
NEW YORK (AP) — A family friend says Eartha Kitt, a sultry singer, dancer and actress who rose from South Carolina cotton fields to become an international symbol of elegance and sensuality, has died. She was 81.
Andrew Freedman says Kitt died Thursday of colon cancer and was recently treated at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital in New York.
Kitt, a self-proclaimed "sex kitten" famous for her catlike purr, was one of America's most versatile performers, winning two Emmys and getting a third nomination. She also was nominated for two Tony Awards and a Grammy.
