Animal House

Pets make me smile. They are so goofy, I can't help but love 'em.

Ace and Junior--The Greeters. This is what I see when I look out the van window. "We are so glad you are home! Pet us."

Please ignore anything you might see under my daughter's bed. Nikki is guarding the dust bunnies. Nikki is my stalker kitty. She was taking a break from her stalking duties, under my daughter's bed. She is a brave cat.


[caption id="attachment_4479" align="alignnone" width="300" caption="Joe, the 'fraidy cat"][/caption]

Joe is very sweet, but very skittish. He doesn't want any funny business going on. He's 13 so he's allowed to lay under the bed if he so chooses. When I'm old, if I choose to lay under my bed, then let me. Just sayin'.


[caption id="attachment_4480" align="alignnone" width="300" caption="Shamus, the kitty"][/caption]

Shamus is the youngest of the "crew". He is either fearless or has no sense, we're still not sure. Please ignore Junior sniffing Shamus' backside. Animals do not understand social etiquette....especially while getting their pictures taken. Sigh.

Salem is the queen. She is beautiful. She puts up with nothing. Don't mess with her. She has claws and is not afraid to use them.

Lonnie is the newest member of the family. My son got him from the local humane society. He is the sweetest guy, I just love him...even though I've nicknamed him "The Furinator."

This is a picture I took of Jazz during our last snow. I took the picture through the living room window...where it was warm.

These are not my llamas, but I love them anyway. The neighbor across the road owns the llamas. I just get to watch them. I can't wait for all the babies that will appear this Spring!


  1. Any lover of dogs and cats who also includes dust bunnies in her blog is alright in my book.

    Ok for some reason the picture of Ace and Junior really crack me up!! :)

  3. I know! They look like Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dum(b). haha!

  4. Love cats. love your pet stories, & well I don't "love" dust bunnies, but I believe that they too have a right to live in my Dust Bunnies story.
    Nice blog and pictures!
