    In my house there is two cats.

    At work, outside, I have several chipmunks. One is tame enough to ask for peanuts ;)

    I used to have a crow come visit me each year...but I think he has died this time as this is the first spring/summer he hasn't spent with me in about 8 years. He came in 8 years ago with his foot all mangled up. I snuck some antibiotics in his food and I must have done it right since he lived! His foot "healed" but he never did regain the use of it. Always held it funny. Thus I could spot my Mr. Crow. Plus he barked for food...if I didn't give him something good, he barked louder. Guess Mr. Crow had a pet human ;g

    Some of my next-door neighbors cats should be mine. They spend more time here and rush to see me when I get home. One lets me hug him and won't let anybody else.

    I also have a "stray" cat that I have named Garfield. He's an orange tabby. He periodically lives on my carport. Only lets me touch him. Nobody else came come within 20 foot of him.

    Dear Pets,

    When I say to move, it means go someplace else, not switch positions

    with each other so there are still two of you in the way.

    The dishes with the paw print are yours and contain your food. The

    Other dishes are mine and contain my food Please note: Placing a paw print in

    The middle of my plate and food does not stake a claim for it becoming your

    food and dish, nor do I find that aesthetically pleasing in the

    slightest.



    The stairway was not designed by NASCAR and is not a racetrack. Beating

    me to the bottom is not the object. Tripping me doesn't help, because I

    can fall down faster than you can run.



    I cannot buy anything bigger than a king size bed. I am very sorry

    About this. Do not think I will continue to sleep on the couch to ensure your

    comfort. Look at videos of dogs and cats sleeping--they can actually

    curl up in a ball. It is not necessary to sleep perpendicular to each other

    stretched out to the fullest extent possible. I also know that sticking

    tails straight out and having tongues hanging out the other end to

    maximize space used is nothing but sarcasm.



    For the last time, there is not a secret exit from the bathroom. If by

    Some miracle I beat you there and manage to get the door shut, it is not

    necessary to claw, whine, bark, meow, and try to turn the knob, or get

    your paw under the edge and try to pull the door open. I must exit through

    the same door I entered. In addition, I have been using bathrooms for

    years--canine or feline attendance is not mandatory.



    The proper order is kiss me, then go smell the other dog or cat's butt.

    I cannot stress this enough.



    To pacify you I have posted the following message on our front door...



    Rules for Non-Pet Owners Who Visit and Like to Complain About Pets:



    1. They live here. You don't.



    2. If you don't want their hair on your clothes, stay off the

    furniture. (That's why they call it "fur" niture.)



    3. I like my pets a lot better than I like most people.



    4. To you, it's an animal. To me, he/she is an adopted son/daughter who

    is short, hairy, walks on all fours and doesn't speak clearly.



    Lastly, I will try to keep in mind that dogs and cats are better than

    kids. They eat less, don't ask for money all the

    time, are easier to train, usually/sometimes come when called, never

    drive my car, don't hang out with drug-using friends, don't smoke or drink,

    don't worry about buying the latest fashions, don't wear my clothes, don't

    need a gazillion dollars for college, and if they get pregnant...I can sell

    the results!

    My fiance and I have two cats, both adopted off the street. First one we got about 7 months ago, his name is Tycho, looks like an American Blue, about 4 years old, 19lbs. Second I found four days ago, dubbed Tinker Bell, looks to be a Maine Coon, maybe 8-10 months old, 6lbs. Tycho was scared to death of Tink for the first couple of days, they're getting along famously now.

    I have a 100 lb chocolate lab(my avatar). He's my best buddy and an awesome dog. My wife and I are now considering a yellow sister for him. He is 3 years old now and has really matured.

    lethal tupperwa, I can definitely relate. That cracked me up reading it. Describes Kody to a "T". Thanks for the laugh. :)

    Currently ....

    B&W California Kingsnake
    Priscilla- white and grey tabby housecat
    Sera- lightly colored black and tan GSD, 5 years old, 55-65 pounds
    Stoner- dark GSD red and black, approximately 1 year old, 70-80 pounds. He may be going to live with my in-laws soon. They have a fenced in backyard, which he needs and he responds well to my mother-in-law. My father-in-law had s troke over s year ago and has been wanting a larger dog to keep him company.

    Reuben- my human son at 2.5 weeks, he feels like a pet sometimes.....lol.

    We may be adding a young black male cat (Elvis) to go with Priscilla.

    If we give Stoner to my in-law's we will probably get a smaller dog (15-25lbs.). If we don't have two, Sera will end up gaining weight, which aggravates her hip dysplasia.

    So misskit, none of your neighbor's outdoor cats go after the chippys? I would think they would be very tempting to outdoor cats.
