Ellen Degeneres couldn't make it to the cat convention, to check out the new products, but as a cat owner (three felines) and an investor in products available at PetSmart, she wanted to check it out.
Enter a flamboyant assistant, Andy Zenor, dressed up and ready to make a fuss. He went from fuss to non-plussed when he found Julie, the original Catwoman herself.
Andy quickly went from hunter to prey, as the Catwoman stalked him with her wicked sense of fun!
From the looks of these two pictures, there was even more fun at the press parties! Cropped out on the left was Troy Donahue, who turned up at the "Hysterical" proceedings. I'm not sure who was at "The Maltese Bippy" party. I met Fritz Weaver a few years ago, and mentioned the film
He smiled, not in recalling the film or Rowan and Martin, but in remembering the home-made brownies Julie brought to the set! "You bet your sweet bippy!"
But in California, there's always flowers in bloom, especially in Julie's garden.
Back in New York, where Julie once had an apartment, the New Yawk phrase for telling a bunch of people to get lost is: "Be Gone, Yez."
In laid back California, everyone's welcome to take a look at the Begonias!
Maybe she'll get a rose named after her, like Julie. And yes, Rose likes Julie! Both were born in August (Rose on August 15th, Julie on August 16th).
On this photo, taken a few years ago: "Wish I could say I was sitting down in this pic...used to think I was tall - maybe 'cause I was next to Morey so much!"
She'll be appearing at the annual CATCON, at the Pasadena Convention Center.
Julie is a featured guest, and also on hand (some for both Saturday and Sunday the 13th) Ian Somerhalder ("Vampire Diaries"), Mike Bridavsky and Lil BUB, Moshow the Cat Rapper, Cats of Instagram, Pudge the Cat, Nala Cat, Kitten Lady, Aaron Benitez ('Aaron's Animals'), Jonathan Zurbel ('Catstradamus'), Michael Nielsen ('Monty Boy'), Oskar the Blind Cat, Simone Tipton ('Doc'), White Coffee Cat, and Luna Rose.

Anything goes. People download "free" movies, TV shows, porn, and PDF/ePub copies of books.
People hoist things to YouTube and "monetize" them, even if it's somebody else's copyrighted material.
Let's have a bit of civility.
When Julie signs a picture, she's not entering into a business partnership. As in, "now you can scan this and sell copies."
She could sell "copies" on eBay and donate all the money to charity. So why are YOU copying and keeping all the money?
In a word DON'T.
Because it's RUDE. And you didn't tell her, "guess what, Julie, I'm gonna copy this photo because, er, uh, I want to make back the admission price for getting into Comic Con. And I'd like to make back the money I paid to meet you..."
Let's be a little more respectful and a lot less ridiculous.
PS, the items DO get removed from eBay as they are against eBay policy on counterfeit material and material being sold without licensing or permission.
That includes THIS:
Going back many years, people have routinely asked Julie to pose for a photo. Free. Even if it meant holding up the line. The reason? A souvenir. The reason shouldn't be to go into the dupe photo business. You didn't get a signed model release, after all. This was a friendly moment, not a business transaction.
So again, and this is coming not from Julie but from those who deal with the business end of things, please enjoy your moment. Enjoy the generosity of being able to take a photo at no charge. Enjoy your photo. If you need to sell it at some point, sell the original. Duping photos is just not nice or ethical. Thank you for your understanding.
