Lulu, your doggies and kitties are beautiful and I looooove Siamese cats. Had them most of my life. They are wonderful. I haven't had one for quite a few years. The last "pure" cat I had was a Himalayan named Topaz. She was a real lady and gorgeous.

The closest thing to Topaz is Ashley, a mongrel, who is my avatar. Ashley has the markings, long hair and blue eyes of a Himalayan, but his mother was a short-haired grey tabby. Don't know who his daddy was since Sugar, the mother, was one of our outside kitties. Sugar was beautiful too. We suspect Ashley's father was Siamese. Even though Ashley's picture was taken outside, he's an inside kitty and a REAL momma's boy.

Love the pictures, everyone. There's a soft spot in my heart for animals. I don't know what I'd do without my furry children.

He's unbelievably soft.

Here's right before Max decided to first get his nose too close to Trinket....their first meeting. I was too busy seperating them to take the additional....

It looks like Trinket has, shall I put it delicately, lost her girlish figure. All she would have to do is sit down hard on Max. He'd get the point pretty quickly after that.

One of our indoor kitties, Miss Rodeo, has the same figure Trinket does. There's lots of her to love.

OK, so you asked for them!

The cochins when they were teeny tiny! They are big now, but every summer the hatling arc gets a couple of residents!

My favourite horse. She is on loan in UK. I REALLY miss her.

ooh, pet pics!

Here's Tursa, she's my oldest now (not counting my cat) after Dart passed away before Christmas (ruptured spleen). She's a Presa Canario and a real lover. She's 3 in the pic, but is 7 yrs old now.



Here's Dart when he was about 4 yrs old. He's a Rhodesian Ridgeback. I'm not sure what I'm going to get to replace him. He had an attitude about him that I really miss. It's hard to describe. But it probably won't be another RR.



And here's my baby, Petra. She's a long haired GSD (German line). She's 3-1/2 yrs old and I took this pic last year for an ad I did. She's filled out a little more. She never walks anywhere, always hustling around and always checking in on me every 10 minutes or so.



I don't have any digital pics of Nova, my Oriental SH. He's pretty neat looking because he comes from a show breeder, so he's tall and lanky with a triangular head. He must be 11 or 12 now.....

She is pleasently plump isn't she.... and I don't overfeed her and she hasn't lost a ounce of weight since I've had her. She cracks me up because when she walks that tummy just swings. When I got her I went into the little room where she was (laundry room) and the lady had a self feeding cat feeder and there Trinket was reaching her paw up bringing down the food....cracked me up. The lady must of kept her potatoes out there in the laundry room because Trinket goes crazy with potatoes and loves all over them. The funniest thing she used to do when we had the other house was make this god awful drawn out meow when she was coming down the upstairs and I knew instantly each time she was bringing down some piece of clothing she found. I always feared she'd ultimately bring my underthings down when company was present... so I was really good about not leaving those on the floor. Here we don't have the upstairs completed so she doesn't do that anymore.

Oh how cute. I have a pic of me when I was maybe 5 holding my pet chicken. My dad had the idea to raise them (we lived intown too). Well I didn't realize why he was raising them.... it was or the eggs to eat the chickens themselves. I don't remember but I can almost guarantee my baby chickie was one of them.... .

I love your horse.....very beautiful. I haven't went horseback riding in years. I think I'll see if we can do that when warm weather hits.
