That's great!
The fact that she's a rescue makes it that much more awesome.
Every dog that I've ever had has been a rescue.
I could tell you stories about them for days, but I get the feeling that you understand where I'm coming from.
Go Flopsie!

Why do cats seem to love finding the least comfortable seeming place to sleep? His head is pressing into the wooden bars there, what a weirdo.

I'm afraid I had to return Lauren to the shelter. She was unmanageable and really destructive. In two-months, we made no progress at all, including potty training. She was literally wrecking my house. I hated having to take her back, but I also felt she was impeding Flopsie's (Lydia's) progress. I was at the shelter Wednesday, and made a point to look in on her. She's doing well, and I know our Humane Society will never put her down. They have a facebook page, where they list all the pets up for adoption. I noticed Saturday, suddenly, Lauren is no longer listed, so I'm wondering if she found a new home? I'll be checking about that.

It's not our place to question our cats. You know that!

P.S.- Moe has pretty feet!

This is Emma's biological brother. I think they have so many of the same features, he's just all gray.

Some of you may remember I lost my baby boy, Dexter, a couple of months ago. Still totally heartbroken about it. I've been looking to adopt another cat, as I don't like being a crazy cat lady without a cat.

Anyway, long story short, a guy my Mum knows had recently bought a kitten and it wasn't doing well in a house with Lurchers and small children. Rather than leaving her in that situation, we now have her.

Her name is Tilly (short for Matilda). I am already her human slave. Her and Cookie (my parents cat) are currently getting used to each other. Not entirely sure how it's going, there has been hissing and growling, mostly from Tilly.

Hissing is normal, my Emma hissed at Lilly a bit at first. They're doing much better now. Yesterday Emma did a sneak attack on Lilly. Lilly was walking away and Emma ran up to her, tried to bat at her, and took off running. It was hilarious.

Here's Fleur taking a well-earned rest. She works very hard at seeking out tissue paper to shred. The other day, she found a whole, brand-new roll of toilet paper to mangle!

Flopsie, my wonderful rescue pup. If you look closely, she has a 1-inch cut in her right ear. I don't know how or when it happened, but I know she's had a rough life. This evening, she managed to escape from the back yard. My heart went into my throat, when I realized she was gone. I was about to solicit the neighbors to help search for her, but it turns out she was just in the front yard nosing around. I found a small break in the fence, probably from the cold winter we had, and of course I repaired it. There is so much danger in the world!

These are my three kitties. They're a little family! The black and white one is named Nana (Nay-Nay) and she's the Mama. The apricot/tannish one is named Katie and he's the Daddy...I know he has a girl name, it's a long story. The last one is their little baby and his name is Leo.

I know, all of them think they're models.

So, I'm petting my dog's ears, when Kittie saunters by and murmurs, "That's disgusting!"

Ratters!

I have 2 cats and 2 rats. My cats have zero interest in the rats.
