Strange animals at our house!

OK, I am not a crazy dog lady. I am so much more than that. Why stop with one species??? These are just three silly shots of the wonderful friends I have. I just wanted to share what makes me smile on a regular basis.

Lily upside down playing with Dwardy (he is a diagnosed mentally retarded cat--horrible balance and spacial perception--often falls down or misses things when trying to jump)

This is Luke begging for me not to leave the house. We tease him that he has a question. It must be "But WHY do you have to leave me???"

OK, this next one puts me in a whole new "crazy" league, but squirrels like me. This is Katy. She actually will sit on the porch swing and look in the window for me. She also comes to the front door. She eats out of my hand and thanks me for each nut with a quick hug squeeze to my finger. Some times she actually hugs my hand and holds it while she chews on a pecan. She reminds me that we really can get along with others who are different.

Wow, Wow, Wow, the cats, the dog and the Squirrel!!! Yes, we can all get along and co-exist.

Thank you for sharing, they made me smile too.

I had squirrel friends too until I brought Violet home. One special one when we first moved here, Nibbly, may she rest in peace.... lol! I gotta say though, don't forget they are wild. The finger hug could take a nasty turn.... Speaking from experience with my "tame" furry friend....

That first picture of your two cats looks like an illusion--like the tiger kitty is standing upside down in defiance of gravity!

Love your pets--but, have to say Linus is still my favorite!

I keep telling the kids that the squirrel is not a pet. She is a friendly neighbor. Linus is pretty unthreatening so she leaves him alone, and he leaves her alone. They walk around the yard without a circus act. Luke, on the other hand, is pure hound and wants a chase. She is funny; Katy will come up to the front door and taunt Luke because she knows he can't get out of the glass. I have video of her touching the glass at his nose and running away--twice!

We all love animals, thank goodness. I think that would have been a deal-breaker early on.

I had a squirrel friend until he started climbing up my screen door and peeing all over the glass!

I love the picture of the squirrell and how it interacts with you. Just don't let anyone say you are nuts!
