Ah!! So Havana completes the trio!! she looks like a perfect leader of the pack... great to hear that they are all doing great!

Cara, your horse is beautiful!! I miss having a pet too.. But when we move into the new flat, probably we will get a cat. I would love a British short hair or a Scottish fold or their look alike, someone big, round and mellow!!

urmaniac, I would love to have a cat, too... but that's not possible with our flat.. the only disadvantage.. :-(
but maybe one day... I won't give up hope
I think I would get one from the animal shelter.. I di check their homepages regularly to see what they have ;o)

Do you have concrete plans to move?

Yes, we will probably go to a shelter too when we are ready to bring one home... there are so many of them who need a home. I actually have a good "friend" now, an incredibly well-fed and chunky stray with a beautiful calico coat, who always hang out at Piazza Vittorio, I see him very often on the way to the gym. He is so friendly he runs to me when he sees me, and purrs on and on when I pet him!! I would love to bring him home, but in reality he only knows the free life on the street, I am afraid he wouldn't be happy cooped up inside a flat...

About the flat, we just acquired a bigger flat a couple of months ago, it needs a complete makeover inside though, we just started cleaning out the downstair storage so we can at least start moving some of our stuff, mamma mia what a mess... I am already pooped!! I hope everything gets done soon enough... wish us luck!!

I love this! I thought I was one of few with eclectic animals. I am going to take my camera from work this weekend so I can post my "Kids".
