The primary owner of Edloe Island is Crap Mariner, but all co-owner residents have full Estate/Region Manager rights, terraforming ability, and are required to discuss and decide all sim-related issues. Crap Mariner is adamant about not taking action without their decision, as it is the foundation of the island.
Nowhereville runs on a identical model of governance.
Edloe the cat was named for a street in Houston, Texas USA. She was one of several kittens of Natasha, but wasn't the one her owner actually wanted to keep. She hid in the closet while all the others were gathered up for the veterinarian to find homes for. By the time the mistake was realized, all the kittens had found homes.
She and Natasha lived together for eight years, Edloe being standoffish, aloof, and, surprisingly, thin. When Natasha died, Edloe became the lap-cat and was quite vocal and bossy... and she ate. (and ate... and ate...)
The arrival of Frisky gave her a cat to play with, and then Nardo and Piper (and their Daddy) gave more cats for her to boss around.
She gathered up a cult following on the Amish Tech Support (defunct) weblog as well as a set of live catcams on which she'd roll over and soak up sun on her tummy. This was called "Capsizing" and was a big hit with her audience.
She was also known for sitting upright in chairs when people would leave the room, stealing them and demanding treats to give up the seat.
She died of seizures and liver failure on June 28, 2005.
