I've had animals in my life since I was 2 yrs old and I got my first Siamese cat, Penny. Needless to say, my children have inherited that love of animals. But then they also have been raised with many companions so it was kind of a given. You've seen a lot of the dogs. They interact all the time with the kids so it's easy to get pictures of them...just follow the kids around! And so here is another photo of Lulu..C's Best friend!
This is Cassie. She is a Balinese I rescued along with her sister Cate. I don't know what she was looking at. C has officially declared Cassie HIS cat!
This is Cate, Cassie's twin. She is amazing with The Girl. Lets her carry her draped over her arms. And Girl takes her everywhere!! Cate is HER cat!
This is Sammie. She is a torte Siamese I adopted from a rescue group 10 yrs ago. I love this cat and this cat loves me! My hubby does NOT love this cat and she does NOT love him!! She is not a lap cat and she is only just now coming around to letting others touch her. Before now, it's only been me.
Cate and Cassie, bonding.
And of course Annabelle in her crate. Girl has now declared Anna to be her dog, yeah right! I love those ears!! She is afraid of the cats until she gets in her crate....then she's all dog vs cat!!
I still find it so hard to know that she spent the first 6 months of her life out on the streets! So glad the Tn Rescue Group were able to get her and her brother.
Lizzy, W's dog, part Golden Retreiver part chow we think. She is big, goofy and will follow those kids to the end of the earth!! This is the only one we've not gotten from rescue or the humane society. We got her from a friend when I was expecting Girl. Maybe that's why she's so kid attached....
And of course Oliver! I adopted him from the humane society 12 yrs ago. He is the only male and is totally alpha. I call it small dog syndrome!! He is D's although as he gets older, he comes to me for just about everything...including tucking into bed at night... yea, my bed! It is cute when I wake up in the morning and he's on Big Daddys pillow!! But I don't think Big Daddy see's the humor in that, LOL!!
So there is the intro to the other kids. The cats are a little off balance, we only have 3. My 18 yr old tabby died last month....I'm ready to get my numbers even again.......hmmmm is Big Daddy??
