Show and Tell Tuesday

Welcome to this week’s Show and Tell Tuesday!

Today, Michelle is sharing photos of her “furbabies”. She has 3 cats and a dog named “Crystal”! 🙂 I’ll let you read her words to describe them . . .

“My son rescued the 2 longhaired cats as kittens from the street; it was January in the snow. The poor things. I expected mangy flea ridden things when he asked to bring them home and instead he brought in these two amazing furballs.”

Eeyore is the grey, reminds me of a dumb bouncer or sports jock…not too smart. lol

Itachi means weasel in Japanese and he loves to steal pens and bring us toy mice as trophies. He swallowed some thread when he was 1 1\2 and we had to decide whether we could spend a fortune for an operation to save him. We did of course and he’s doing fine now but my craft/sewing room is off limits 🙂

The orange cat is O’malley, a rescue by my brother-in-law’s girlfriend, but then she found out she was allergic. He likes to sleep 23 out of 24 hours. When we accepted him he was infested with ear mites poor thing so we had him treated and now he wont leave my side when I sleep.

The lab is Crystal, named by my son when she was a puppy because she was “shiny and special”. For 12 years I ran a daycare and she would convert the non-dog lovers to the point that they would say “Hi and Bye” to her before me. She’s 13 now and on her last legs poor thing but hubby keeps hoping she’ll pass in her sleep so he doesn’t have to make the decision to take her to the vets.

They are expensive and are a nightmare for hair but they are also such a comfort when I am depressed or in pain from my fibromyalgia. Hubby even keeps the cat treats on his bedside table to treat them before we’ll go asleep. They are my furbabies 🙂 Kids and pets, both drive us crazy and steal our hearts!”

Thanks so much, Michelle. You sure have a bunch of cuties, there! 😀

Once Upon a Time . . .

(at Paulette’s house) 😉

a brand new kitten joined the family! They named him, “Jingles” and he immediately stole their hearts.

But who could ever blame them for falling for this little fella?

Months turned into years . . . and Jingles has grown up to be ever so handsome! 😀

Paulette says: “I love all my kitties, but Jingles has so much personality. He really knows how to get to all of us. One of our favorite expressions when referencing Jingles is “he’s putting on the act”. That means, he’s acting adorable, and we all have to run over and smother him with kisses!”

And finally, this last photo has to be my personal favorite. (Yawn, stretch!!!)

Can you say ADORABLE????? (Thank you, Paulette!)


More pictures next Tuesday! If you haven’t already – please consider sending one of your photos, too! Hey, even if you have sent one, we’d love to see anything else you’d like to share!



Talk About C-U-T-E

Remember in one of last week’s posts when I asked:

“What makes you smile on a grey day?” 🙂

Well Allison replied that her *three* basset hounds make her smile.

As I read that, it sounded so sweet that I asked if she had a photo of them . . .

Oh my goodness! Is this adorable or what???

The pretty young lady is Allison’s daughter and this was their 2009 family Christmas card. The bassets are Clara (the oldest), and Beau and Bella (who are littermates).

The big fella is Moose, a chocolate lab, who thinks he is a mastiff! Allison says that she saw both of his parents and they were a normal size!

Thank you so much, Allison, for sharing this photo. I have a feeling you are brightening the day for everyone who sees it! 😀
