Don't have pics with me right now so I can't show but here's my list. Two dogs, a labrodour cross and a ridgeback cross, and three cats.

Including my seasonal pets (Those who visit me and don't rightfully belong to me and are free to leave when they please) it would be; Two dogs, three cats, a bunch of bats, a family of swallows, oodles of guttaral toads and occasionally a striped river frog.

I had a hubbie too, but after 20 years he appeared not to be that domesticated at all, he recently ran of with a new owner. Now I still have a cat, Indy and a rabbit, Stormy, and they are very reliable. They actually belong to my two sons, but I'm also fond of them.

The little person which I (usually) call my friend:
Image
His full name is Tasslehoff Burrfoot Quanjer, mostly shortened to Tass. If I use the longer version he starts getting worried, when I use the first two names he goes into hiding, and if I need to use all three names I'll have his hide.
But he is 14 now, so usually well behaved.

Ready for the next introduction? Number three in the catfamily is a 8 year-old male, named Rakker (translation: rasqual). Oh if I ever thought better before I named him like that. Came from the animalshelter as a 6 month old kitten, more dead than alive. Broken tail, burned, skin to bone, very ill. The vets told me, if he would make it, he would never grow into a real big cat. How wrong they were! He is a giant as well, and 2 hobby's: misschief and more misschief :roll: Favourite position: laying in your arms, whole day, every day. Favourite sport: jumping from a high position, on his sleeping boss (Nico), who has absolutely no sense of humour on those moments.

The next one is a 7 year old male, called Tobey. He's actually the only one that has no "history" of abuse. He usually behaves like he lost his marbles, so usually we call him "Dopey".
Has very strange habits, pulling himself up at lose cloths, and fall down again, play dead and roll over, always at the wrong side, so he falls down the table again. Going from one room to another, jumping half a meter high as he is passing a threshold, etc. Favourite position: hanging around somebody's neck. Favourite sport and hobby: EATING!!!

So here the next family member, number 6 of the cats, with a special story. It is a 5 year old female, called Claire. She was thrown in a plastic bag in the forest, was found and brought to the animal shelter. Than at age of 7 weeks she got a new owner, but was not totally healthy, so she was thrown in the woods again, brought to the shelter again, in a terrible condition. At that time I had some trainings in the animal shelter, and at once she was sitting in front of me, looking up looking very straight in my eyes (and climbed in my heart at the same time, but I was in total deniel). I rushed out, didn´t want to bring in more cats. Few days later I was there again, and she was looking at me again, through the glass wall. Again I turned away, being resonable. That was the 10th of September 2001. As we all know what happend on the 11th of September that year, I was, like everybody, shocked about that. That evening I (together with my family) decided that, against so much bad things happening, something good had to be done. So next morning I went to the shelter and took her out, home. Say yourself, being thrown away once is bad, but go through that twice, is really ugly.
So she came to us, tiny, thin and a severe pneumonia. After long treatment, she recovered, but allways stayed very small. She is a very modest and shy cat, never TAKE attention, but always wait untill she gets some.

Hi, I'm a new forumite member. I am Elsa's Daughter-in-law, and Jock's Sister-in-law and also a lover of the Kruger and other game parks. However I don't get to go as often as I would like! We are scheduled for a trip this May/June and can't wait!

I have two miniature Daxies, a boy - Monty (8yrs) and a girl - Sasha (4 yrs). They are my "children" and go pretty much everywhere with us.

Will post a pic as soon as I figure out how to!!!
