Your pet!

I love animals, especially cats, please share your photos of your pets...here is mine:

This is my 11 year old cat named Shaika, she's a bitter old girl with a peculiar sense of humour and is a picky eater but she's the best! I'll take some more pics of shaika imminently!





Her lifestyle consists of lounging around in her closet where she spends up to 12 hours strait and eating and watching TV. Once she was sleeping in her closet and a stray cat broke into the home and ate her food, Shaika never noticed but became quite alarmed later when she saw her food bowl empty and became quite agitated when she smelled the other cat's odor in her ever shrinking territoy! Stupid thing!

Post pics of my cat? You don't have to ask twice! His name is Marcus, and he's getting old (14 years). I wish he could stay around forever, but unfortunately that's not the deal with pets...

Cute pictures. Pets? Yeah, I have a few.

This is Sophie, my baby. She's a pure bred miniature poodle. She's 5 years old.




This is Lacy. She's 9. Lacy is Sophie's aunt.





This is Jules. I'm not exactly sure how old he is. He was a stray at an apartment complex. When I first got him he was real shy around the dogs. He wasn't exactly sure about his new home. I'd walk in the bedroom and he'd be on my bed and would jump up like he thought he was in trouble. Now though he pretty much sleeps on my bed all day. He also lounges around the Lego table.








This is my sister's new cat Jodie. He's about 8 months old. He is most definitely still a kitten.




And this is Mittens. He passed away a year a half ago. He was 13.


Mittens hanging out with my brother's Dalmatian Penny.

Maple will be 8 this year. She couldn't make the move with me right away since my temporary place says no to pets. But, we'll be back together in two or three months when we get our new place and she can make the trip. She's pretty well travelled having been born in Aylmer, QC and having lived in Ottawa, Regina, Edmonton and St. Louis.





I really like that one with Marcus stretching out the window olga.

Rico, I heard from some extended family in Japan that tortoise-coloured cats are always female. Does anyone have a male tortoise-coloured cat? I've only known four so far and they were all female.

^ Haha, awesome dog. My grandparents had a huge black German Shepard named Jet when I was little. I used to climb all over that dog. He was the sweetest most docile dog. I remember one story that my grandparents told me. My grandpa had let him in one night. He was asleep in their bedroom in the corner. Well anyway, my grandma walked in the room just to pick something up so she left the light off. As she walked in she heard this deep moan. lol They said it scared my grandma to pieces at first.

Sophie and Lacie are so cute, we had a poodle named Sally just before having Nessie, when she passed away she was 15 years old and even if I prefer bigger ones, she was so smart and funny, very sweet too but a better guard dog!! Nessie is nice to everyone, even to the postman!

This is Sally:


and with her "wintercoat"


And to finish my first dog Warum who unfortunately passed away at only 5 years old, sweet too, here with my 2 or 3 years old brother, I was 7 or 8:



I love so much dogs, if you used to talk to them since they're little they can understand everything.
Your cats are cute too but I never had cat so I didn't know how is it to live with one.

My step-pugs (my partner's pugs from a former relationship, and yes custody is exchanged once a week):

Emma (aka Sweet Pea, PiggyPug, DrunkyPug, Stomach, EmmaEffer) 8 years old - she's the mellow one, but also the one with an appetite. She's not fat, though - she's big boned! I wouldn't be at all surprised to come home and see her sitting upright on the couch with a beer in one paw and a remote in the other:


Chloe (aka Gurglehead, KissyChloe, Fu Dog, Alien Face Hugger (see the movie below), 7 years old - she's more excitable, prone to get feisty with larger dogs (that's always fun), but she absolutely loves people.


Doing what they do best - other than eating:


This is the result of teaching a dog to give "kisses" instead of biting when they're a puppy. Apparently Emma had a tendency to nip at peoples' fingers (told you she has an appetite), so when Chloe came along, my partner trained her to play nice and give "kisses". This shows the result, Chloe the kissing bandit or Alien Face Hugger, take your pick (12MB movie): http://www.clevelandskyscrapers.com/pugattack.MOV

Oh, and Chloe gets indignant if she doesn't get to give me kisses within 20 minutes of getting home.

I'll post some pictures of my cat and dog tonight (maybe some of my dad's dog and cats too. My cat hobbes is an 18 year old maine coon, we got him when I was a few weeks (or maybe months) old, he's an outdoor cat, but he has a little house and a heater on our front veranda. My dog is six and is a beishon (butchered, I know) shiztu (butchered again?).

This is Zoe, our 1.5 year old Chihuahua-Yorkie. My wife wanted a dog and I was a little skeptical, but since we bought her in Sep. 06. So things changed pretty quickly, I have become very attached to her now. So much so, that I would say buying her was one of the best decisions we (I) have ever made.

Anyways, she's very quite (not a yappy dog at all), and warm/friendly to anyone she meets. It's hilarious all the little things she's developed since we got her. For one, every time someone calls us on iChat, she recognizes the ring sound and runs to the office to jump on our lap to 'video chat' with whoever is calling. Anyways.. here is our 'kid'!







This was me calling on iChat over Christmas. My sister had her laptop in front of Zoe, and I was talking from the office. She doesn't quite 'get it', but loves when people talk to her via iChat.... she whines back at them.

I forgot all about this thread last night, so here are my pets.

My mop/dog.


The old boy.


The dog in her tent.


He's still got some play in him.


That's her spot, she was sleeping until I called her for the picture.



I might post more later, I'll try to find some of my dad's dog.
