My hubbies bird is the real character around here. The dog is in her years adn the cat is pretty normal other than being fat (except when she had that plakat hanging off her nose).
Our bird come upstairs on cold night and sleeps with one of us. She loves pizza and starts parrot screaming "Pizzaman! Pizzaman ! when the doorbell rings."
she jumps into the bath with anyone there if she can mangae to get the door open.
She really likes going on short trips and chasing the cat. The cat is highly unappreciated of all this. All my real characters are long gone. The new generation seems to be dedveloping amongst the fish.

I bought a bannana shaped squeaky dog toy several years ago for my chihuhua, She never wanted anything to do with it.


Well, since I've gotten my Cat [ Yes, his name is Cat. I'm SO Original] he loves to play with it.


He'll sink his gnarly little fangs into the things bulging eyes, and just do cartwheels. Head over tail cartwheels, None stop.

When he gets done with his acrobatic act, he starts to, well.. It looks kinda like he is humping it. 8O , only in reverse [ He lays on his back while doing this ]




That, and the stupid cat likes to sit in the darkest places of the house at night, an attack anyone who walks by, by leaping out at you and wrapping his claws around your thigh with a " reowl! "

I have a 16 week old kitten. He'll fall asleep on my girlfriends belly (she's 35 weeks pregnant). The baby inevitably gives a kick to the kitten who complains with a piteous yowl. This brings forth another kick. Which in turn causes the kitten to paw and meow at my girlfriend's stomach. This makes the baby kick even more and after another kick or two, the kitten gives my girlfriend a vindictive look and runs off. It's like he thinks she's trying to force him off her belly...

My dog and cat chase each other around. The cat is a real "tough guy".

My cat fetches.
My mother's cat fetches, but he will only play with the plastic lizard (which is now beheaded). He does not like to bring back the fuzzy toys; although, he will carry them around.

As for my three lumps--Spice (15), Josie (3) and Squirrel (2), they are most adorable when sleeping. Because when they are not sleeping, they are getting into trouble. This morning my fiancé was taking a water sample into the lab (to use the pH tester ) and Squirrel knocked EVERYTHING off the stereo so she could jump up on the 80 gal to watch him. She has got to be the most UNgraceful cat I have ever seen! Of course, we gotta love her--at night, she lies over the light on the 80 gal sometimes she sleeps, sometimes she watches the cichlids--I really need to get a pic.

Pets of the past.. As a teen I used to have a husky mix that taught herself to meow because I always fed the meowing cats first. She became so well rewarded in the neighborhood that she stopped barking entirely and did only cat sounds and that husky-speak (husky owners know what I mean). Made it rough when my stepdad came home early from overseas. He never heard her coming...^_^

I also had at the time a cat with a tail so long it drug the floor but could jump to the height of a doorjam and a green eye pit that had been dumped at the garbage for mange and been run over by the compactor tractor. His name was Doug (DubbleUgly). A pit lover bought him off me after his coat returned.
Later I had a lot of odd balls but I was practiing to train animals for commercials as i had learned from my sister's husband.. so they were not "naturally" strange.
I ve had many different species of pets including a coyote and a roadrunner (what an ugly bird), wolves, owls, name it. My mom had a tiger and a lion.
