Nancy, Hope your TV remote still works. You never know what is going to happen when
pets are around. Never a boring day!!!

Gale, Good luck at the vet on Friday. I'm sure everything will turn out fine.

lol lol -- thanks Carol.  I think everything is still working. 
Last night I was safely sound asleep --- I was jerked awake by a big crash.  And I was not scared!!  I knew it was just Badcat trying to destroy something.  I got up to see if I needed a mop or anything.  Thank goodnes he just pushed or pulled? a big plastic craft container from the table.

Gale -- no parasites is such good news!! 
Peaches and Badcat were being treated for fleas and a horrible infestation of ear mites when I took them.  The fleas were easy to get rid of and Peaches ears were clean in no time.  Badcats ear mites were very, very bad and it took many trips to the vet and many different meds including steroids.  Poor baby.   Nerves in the right side of his face were damaged but he's still absolutely gorgeous.

Thanks Nancy and Carol,I am enjoying the both of them,they are so much fun watching wresle and fight,she always wins,he is very submissive to her he rolls on his back and she crawls all over him.I'm so fortunate to own these two fine animals.Nancy has Badcat had anymore trouble with the ear mites?Or just permanent damage?Poor kitty I can see why you love them so much.I was like that with Rocky also because he had fear aggression,anyone else may have had him euthanized because of it.I used to say thank God he is not a large breed dog,he would kill someone.The gas company had to come in to check the meter in the basement and I had Rocky secured upstairs so I thought, he knocked over the baby gate,ran down the stairs,slid across the hardwood floor in the living room,grab the guys pant leg and started shaking it violently,thank God he didn't bite him.If the man would have gotten aggressive with him he would have ran and hide.No matter what I did I could not change him.Now towards the end anyone could pick him up because he didn't know what was going on.:(

I check their ears every single day.  When one of them scratches, I almost panic.  But both of them are very clean. So clean and slick.  Badcat's damage is permanent.  I worry so much about his sort of twisted mouth ....... will that interfere with chewing later in his life?

Bless Rocky  .... I wish I could pick him up and hug him.

Nancy if later in life Badcat has a problem eating,just feed him soft food he should do OK with that.Rocky was missing a lot of teeth and he could still eat.Animals seem to adjust better than we do,to life changes.From the minute I took Rocky out of the cage at the shelter he licked my face and we bonded.I took him to see my friend across the street and she tried to pet him and he snapped at her,he also snapped at another women trying to pet him.I wished I knew why,even when I would pet him he would always duck like I was going to hit him.He was 4 months old when I brought him home.The only thing I could think of was that he was abused before I adopted him,if so shame on them they missed out on a very loyal dog.

Gale -- I wonder about that love ... the joyous love from our pets.  How incredible!!  How do they know?  Badcat and Peaches knew they were safe with me when I picked them up and stuffed them into the carrier.  That night both of them curled up on my chest and all three of us went to sleep.

They know when someone loves them,your two kitties are very lucky to have you as their Mom.They may have not gotten adopted.That would have been so sad.All my pups and kittens have always slept on my chest.They hear your heart beat and that calms them and they don't cry all night.My friend was telling me "Oh you won't be sleeping much" and I answered Oh yes I will,then smiled.Romeo does consider me a litter mate and he is always trying to dominate,but I'm bigger and I win.He gets very sassy with me you have never heard such sounds come out of a dog.He has Basenji (which is a barkless dog) in him,but he does bark he makes all the other sounds of a Basenji.lol.

We have 3 dogs ranging from 1 year to 15 years.  They are our 4-legged hairy sons.   One is a therapy dog and loves his work with children and the elderly.

Well I don't know if this will work but I will attempt to introduce my critters to you.
This is Hana the newest addition.  long hair mini Doxie.  About 4 months old.

This is Vienna 3 year old black and tan mini Doxie.

This grey and white cat is the Mean cat.  Scout is her name. She loves to bite.

This lovely is Mittens.  Black and White Tuxedo.  The "scaredy cat" but a sweetheart once she gets to know you.
I hope they post without a problem.
