With so many new members I thought it would be nice to note our fur kids. I have 4 cats:
Leroy, the senior citizen. About 15 years old. He is a black with gray tabby.
Leonardo, is my bottle baby. I had to bottle feed him after his mother abandoned him at about 10 days old. He is now turning 12 in August. He is also a black and gray tabby but has long hair. He tends to be a bully.
Luke, is the sweet one of the bunch. He is very gentle and a little timid but does posses a loud mouth and is not afraid to use it when it suits his purpose. He is 10 years old now. He is orange and white. He is a short hair.
Chester is my newest baby. He will be 2 soon. He is a black cat with just about 10 white hairs on his tummy between his hind legs.
He has short hair. He is the clown of the bunch. Everything is still new to him and MUST be checked out when possible.
Now how about your babies?

Tinky http://netsnapshot.com/users/7030/images/th_PLM02sCoBQIAAClS6ww_7030_36.jpg

Tinky is my baby!! She is the sweetest most loving cat in the whole world!! She loves to be held and petted and rubbs her little face all over everything. She loves to purr, she is always purring!! She loves to lay on me. She takes a nap ON me every day and sits in my lap to bathe! Tinky loves to play kombat kitty in the hallway, and has a favorite ball. She has just turned six months old.

Jupiter http://netsnapshot.com/users/7030/images/th_PLMrKMCoBQIAAEVqK4Q_7030_25.jpg

Jupiter is my newest kitty. He is a very sweet boy but real shy at times! He is kinda sciddish about being petted unless he comes up to you and asks for it. He loves to eat and makes a big mess of his water. Jupiter loves to play and runs around like mad. He loves to play with the ball go round and the catnip mouse. I am so happy he has come to live with us. He has just turned six months old too. :) :)

My zoo is comprised of 5 bunnies, 4 of whom live together in harmony on the first floor: Chocolate is a Rex rabbit and the absolute color of a hersey bar and is the care taker of the bunch; Miss Emma, is a holland lop and a big girl at 6 lbs; Velvet, is my main man, also a holland lop and the sweetest bunny. He was rescued and he is so mellow I could probably dress himup in doll clothes and he wouldn't blink; and Robbie,is a drawf holland and boy # 2 of the First Floor Gang.

Bunny # 5 is also known as The Brat, is Daisy aka Mr. Daisy who was mis-sexed by the vet and then it was too late to change his name. He lives in splendid isolation on the 2nd floor with a stuffed kitty as he has decided he wants to be an only child and fights terribly with the others.

Then there's Pepper the hamster and Dusty the cat.

The problem with working at a sanctuary is that I want to bring everybody home with me. Right now I'm fighting with myself as there are 2 really great bunnies who need a home at the sanctuary......... HHHhhhhhmmmmmm...... ;)

I have 3 cats

Prema, (almost) 4 year old black female (slightly disabled) cat. I know I shouldn't say this but even though I love all of them to pieces, I have a particularly soft spot for her. She's also one of the best behaved cat I've ever had.

Maya (almost) 5 year old female calico. She's the strangest cat I ever had. We call her our Florence Nightingale. She can be as stubborn as hell but is also capable of extreme tenderness when she feels like it.

Foxy, almost 9 months old male cat. He is the latest addition and was adopted shortly after my 19 year old cat went to the RB. We think hs is a maine coon mix. His got a lovely bushy tail, and has some black, grey, white and beige in him (I call him my failed attempt at adopting a grey cat :D )

Pictures to follow :D

And three fish, a kissing gourimi, a long fin, zebra striped danio and a plecto.

Oreo, a 12 1/2 year old beagle/poodle mix lives with my parents, but I still consider her my baby too!

My name is Mehagian (pronounced "Megan") I'm 15 years old and have a dog named Fridae. She is a lab, husky, and rott weiler mix and is 6 years old. I have a calico goldfish named Bubbles, she is 4 years old. Then I have my two babies, Gypsee a Californian rabbit, and Grey right now I have no idea what breed he is.

I am so lucky to share my home with 2 great cats and one cutie pie dog.

Joonier is the oldest of my trio. She's muted tortoiseshell whose all attitude. She was cat of the day on Nov 21 2001 so check her out.
Luna is the apple of my eye! She is a strange furry gray and white lunatic, whom I love very much!
Sparky who is a dachshund cocker spaniel mix his main goal is to make his people happy. He's is a terrific dog.
Over the past year or so I've had to tearfully say farewell to two of my cats, Herman and Mookie I miss you both:( :(

Nearly all of my critters are recycled (A.K.A. Pound purries & furries)

04-12-2002, 08:21 PM
I'm mom to two dogs that are just as fweaky ;) as me.

Smudge a 2 yr old male Lab cross with who knows what, we think some type of spaniel maybe some poodle but we aren't sure.

Winter a 17month old female border collie.

04-12-2002, 09:20 PM
I'm Mom, household staff (see signature;) ) and buddy to two big black & white cats:
Stump, a 13.5 year old tuxedo Manx. He's the sweetest cat in the world.

Emmett, a 3.5 year old "highly energetic" cat! He was rescued from a woodpile at a very tender age and is now very happy to have a home, but it's made him very protective of our house...if any strays or outdoor cats come to visit, he goes crazy!

04-13-2002, 09:12 PM
I am Dad to:

Cocoa(brown hooded rat) and Cloudy(gray rat daughter of Cocoa) my two rats. I call them my" two girls". They are so fun to play with.

Misty 2 years-She is my dog who is part terrier/Chihuahua.

Midnight 4 years-I caan't really say I am her dad, for she has become very attached to my sister. But I still care for her.

Kitten-??????(Getting soon)

I love all my pets and I am so blessed to have all of them.

04-13-2002, 10:00 PM
I have 2 beautiful rescue dogs:

Graham the australian shepherd mix: http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid13/peb9d31a7bcd2a396fa028cd7582036bd/fdd978c4.jpg

And Kersey the newest addition, just adopted on St. Patricks day: http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid13/p76a3bab44839b3eaf7bdf0648df9cd67/fdd97a86.jpg

I also now have two fish, although I think Mrs. fantail goldfish is going to have to go back to the aquarium shop because Mr. Beta is picking on her :(
The beta (he's deep purple and red so he's a bit harder to see) is named Bubble Boy and the red cap fantail goldfish has yet to be named: http://www.imagestation.com/picture/sraid18/pd461cde9430f628d426855bd0ec528b8/fdcefc68.jpg

So altogether that would make 4 pets: 2 dogs and 2 fish.

04-14-2002, 12:12 AM
Can someone tell me how to send more than one file at a time so that I can post more than one pic?
Anyhow. I have several animals. I have 7 rats. Hershey who is a husky bershire blazed satin dumbo male, Odd Eye- a female mismarked fawn hooded blazed odd eye (one red eye and one ruby eye), One eyed flying purple people eater- a female one eyed hairless fawn, Chocolate Chip- a black and white blazed male, Tramp- a siamese buck, Humpdy and Dumpdy- male half masked dalmation rats.
Then there are my Bengal cats. Houdini the grandma. She is marble. Then there is Mystic, Houdinis son from the first litter who is also a marble. Then comes Houdinis daughter Cheetah from the second litter. She is a beautiful glittered rosetted. Then we have Tin Tin who is Houdinis son and Cheetahs brother. He is a spotted Bengal. We also have a new litter of 6 kittens. I am so excited because we had a melanistic Bengal. Cheetah is the proud momma. :)
I also have two male degus but I am getting 2 females tomorrow. They don't have names yet though. Any suggestions? I like unique names.
I also have a white spot gecko named Geiko.
Then there is my hedgehog Guiness (named after the beer).
2 Australian Bourkes Grass Parakeets- one male and one female- yet to be named.
2 regular pet store parakeets. One albino named Snowflake and one all yellow named Tweety.
One California Desert Tourtoise named Lucy. He is a male but I thought that he was a female when I first got him.
4 gerbils. Unnamed as of yet. One female black and white spotted, one male chocolate, one male and one female agouti spotted.
My male pink white chinchilla named Chinchilly Willy.
One goldfish named tiny(he is huge).
2 firebellied
newts. One female and one male. Unnamed.
1 guinea pig named Silly. She ia a female abysinnian.
1 male rock cavie.
And then there are all the animals that I rescue and rehab.

So I think I have a zoo. I still do not have enough though. If anyone had any suggestions as to what I should name my un-named pets let me know. Maybe we could have a contest or something. He he!
:p K bye! Enjoy the pic below!:D

Here is Houdini!

04-14-2002, 12:27 AM
Here is a pick of one of my degus, for the people who do not know what a degu is.

04-14-2002, 12:30 AM
Here is my guinea pig. Oh, I also forgot about my 2 dormice. More on the way if my friends pair has babies. I hope I am not annoying anyone but I like to share my pets because I love them so much!!!!!!!!!!!:D

The latest in a long string of album providers that I am using is www.netsnapshot.com and others are using www.imagestation.com. You can link pictures from there to here. We all used to use Webshots, then Photogra, but have had to keep switching because they stop letting us crosspost our pictures. You can always set up and album at any of those places and then provide us the link.

I thought I had a lot of pets, but you take the cake!:)

The beta (he's deep purple and red so he's a bit harder to see) is named Bubble Boy and the red cap fantail goldfish has yet to be named

I heard that Beta's should live alone, not even with other Beta's because they are an extremely territorial fish. My cousin, Rusty, has like a 10 gallon tank for just two Beta's. They like their space.

Betas can NOT be kept with other betas. They are also called "Simamese Fighting Fish" because they will fight each other litterly to the death. They do semi-good with docile fish, but I could have made a better choice of fish to combine with the beta.
