Thanks everyone. They rule the place too, lol. Well Smokey and Lighting and they too will all of a sudden race through the place. Pewter was the same way. And Mitzie, Smokey's mom. Will have to find her pix for you. Everyone has such beautiful pets. Love the pictures here.

Oh Gale - lol - maybe Badcat will get in the 15x15 bed it bought for them.  He won't fit!!!  His belly is in the bed but both ends hang out LOL
Oh- BTW - I took my camera to WalMart this morning and the kind, kind woman who runs that dept said she thought I just needed new batteries but she would check .... She slowly opened it up, showing me everything, put in new batteries, ran that camera through all sorts of steps and it's just fine.   That's the woman who sold me that camera ... she knows I need help. lol

My Kadi is a Shi Zhu that came from an online rescue service. They said she was a 7 month old breeder surrender but she was so afraid of everyone that it took me nearly a year and a half of taking her into public every weekend to get her to willingly let someone other than myself touch her. She was not just afraid of people either. She was afraid of the TV and the ceiling fan and paper on the floor and any loud noise or sudden movement and other dogs and the list goes on. She is a funny thing now and is always into mischief. But she still won't go outside to potty without taking one of her stuffed animals with her for company and is still afraid of the bathroom oddly enough.
I refused to stay at my sister's house overnight for Christmas last year unless she was welcome too. She was not and it was a very long day for me for a very short visit as it is a 3 hour drive one way and I was determined to be home again before dark. My message was heard. This year she will be going too. She is family, not a pet. A kennel is just not an option for my baby.

Right now I have cats but have had dogs too. Loved dogs. We have had all kinds from cocker spaniels to mutts and have loved each one deeply. So I know both sides of the coins, cat lovers and dog lovers. I am both. Have had birds too and a rabbit at one time. My daughter Sam has a pitt bull and he is the sweetest craziest thing. I think all of our pets were a bit nutty like us, lol. Either they came that way or had to adapt to being around us and I like to think they adapted to fit in with my crazy family. We have great sense of humor big kidders and lovers of all animals, people included lol, and love of life.

Aw, Mary, good for you! Glad Kadi is invited this year, too. You're absolutely right.....members of the family! Reminded me when I read your post....our kitty Tinker used to be afraid of the ceiling fans, too, when we turned them on. He eventually got used to them, but always kept his eye on them when they were moving. We lost him in February and miss him so much.
Merry Christmas and great to have you here, Mary!

Today I start my baby sitting for the people next door.  They are leaving for Christmas visits far away so I'll be taking care of their 3 cats.  I've "met" two of them but the people said I'd never even see the third one who has no use for strangers.

Ann -- I have always been owned by cats except for 2007 and 08. 
Don't you think it's funny that I live in this little condo and the woman on the left has a cat I "sit" for and the people on the right have decided it's safe for them to travel now -- they have me to take care of theirs.

Peaches is asleep on this table, her head on my right arm, in the 6" in front of this screen.  I have to lean against the table to keep her supported.

We just purchased dog Cristmas stockings for our dog Peaches and our son's dog Woody. Of course there our dog toys and treats to fill these stockings.  The dogs do as well as the people in our family.

Shame on me ......... I'm still trying to decide what to make for the cats for Christmas dinner -- and I have to get that out of the freezer --
Would they like turkey bre ast or roast beef - turkey bre ast or roast beef??  hmmmmmmm

Today when I was shopping at WalMart I paid $8 for a little tray of shelled, cooked shrimp.  I stood looking at it wondering ............. i don't eat ANY seafood .... I won't even buy seafood  flavored cat food.  But I threw that stupid little tray in my cart.

You guessed it .... the miserable monsters will not eat it.   Tomorrow I'll take that tray to a neighbor.

My husband and I are retired and we have four small dogs 3 sre 8 years old and they are they queens of the castle the little male is only a year old and he thinks he has to go every where we go and usally does. I wouldn't know what to do with out them now that all the kids are grown, they have become our stay at home kids they can get in to just as much as any child. I wouldn't trade them for anything in  the world even when they do something they aren't suppose to. They are very much part of the family and always will
