Jinx says thank you for all the thoughtful Birthday wishes! 

He said he wishes he lived near Romeo and Juliet so the three of them could play ball together.

Thank you!

Oh Nikki,sweet pictures,nice puppies and kitties,so cute!You are like I used to be,at one time I had three dogs,two cats,a Macaw and a fish pond.Plus more or less.I know you have your hands full,but it's a good kind of full.I can see why you brought Hana home,so sweet but they all are.You have a very good looking bunch of furry kids.

When I met my husband he had a pet store.  No dogs or cats.  Small animals, fish and birds.  Well when he closed the pet store 2 birds came home a Blue and Gold Macaw and an African Grey.  And we had 2 cats and a dog already at home.  All I can say is birds are some of the messiest pets you can have in the house.  Oh, I also had 6 box turtles. It was great when the kids were small they loved it but going on a vacation was a nightmare. It took so much planning and scheduling to get them taken care of.
Very happy with my little dogs easy to travel with if I have to.  Easy to get someone to watch cats.

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.

I do have to agree with you,birds are messy,we had the severe Macaw and Cockatiel's ,they throw their seeds everywhere.We had a box turtle too,but he didn't live very long.My one little lady friend that is almost 100 had a box turtle for 20 years that lived in her secret garden.She and her husband were nationally known for their pottery.Her studio is in one building,with another on the other side of hers and one in the rear of hers.They are all touching each other but there is an area that is in the middle of all this and that is where her secret garden is and that is where the box turtle lived he could not burrow out because of the buildings foundations.She is an amazing women,she knows all about herbs and plants.People would come to her studio from all over to see her plants in her atrium.Her parrot is about 50 years old,I could not even imagine having a bird that long.

We found Peaches, a 10 month old cocker mix - white with taupe freckles - in Feb. of 2010 on our drive way.  We didn't need to go to a shelter, she came to us.  She had a collar on but no license or ID.  We think she was dumped.  No ads or notices for a lost dog as we checked.  She is our now!!  Peaches is a welcome addition to our family.

Don't you wish you had there energy...I do!!

I would love to get another puppy but with having the birds, I think that is enough.  It's hard making plans to go away because we need to have someone to watch our pets.  We are fortunate, we are going to Dayton, OH in a few months and we do have someone to watch Jinx and keep an eye on the birds.  I refuse to take Jinx to a kennel, I am funny about that!! 

Enjoy Romeo and Juliet!!

Gale,  Our cats are my best friends because their love is unconditional and my love
for them is also unconditional.  We are going camping this weekend with 3 of the
cats in the motorhome. They love to watch all the birds and other animals. The only
thing is they are depressed for about a day after they get back because they have
to put up with the other cats. I totally love all of my cats and hubby too!!!

Gale --- little Peaches and giant Badcat often wrestle and Peaches is "allowed" to win.  Big Badcat always backs away. 
It's so sweet it makes my throat close up.

Of course, as I try to type that Badcat is asleep under my right arm and over my left.  (My little laptop is pushed back on a card table -- pushed back so there's enough room for a cat)

Wow -- Gale, you made a really true statement. Really true.
I have a wonderful counselor at the domestic abuse clinic and a bit over a year she said that though she never told me what to do, she was suggesting that I just go to the animal shelter and LOOK at the cats.  I "ended up" with two needy kittens -- or they ended up with me.
I was telling my counselor about the kittens, bragging and carrying on.
She was smiling big and said, "Nancy, you and I have talked for hours and hours for over a year and we've been in group for many hours.  I seldom see you smile and I've never once heard you laugh.  Now you smile so much of the time and you laugh a lot."
What a dear, kind, SMART, woman ....... I tell her all the time it's her fault that I'm stuck with these little monsters.

Nancy and Gale, We had a great time camping with the cats. There were so many
birds and rabbits that they could watch!!! I don't think they got much sleep. They
have been sleeping a lot since we got back!  Your pets really do make you smile
a lot! We never get bored either!!! I love that Gale's fuzzy kids came to pick her up
from the hospital. Nancy I have a couple of monsters too. The house looked like a
tornado hit it when we got back today!!! My husband went every day to check on
them to make sure they were alright!
