    our cats keisha, indy and teddy

    keisha came as 7 weeks old kitten with us (I had a 8 years old sheltie that time) and became friends with our dog after one week and a half... Now he is big boss in the house... he is very sweet to all people or with other cats... (its not getting along most of the time with our new dog for the moment)


    Indy is our eldest female cat .. she is a chartreux of 4,5 years old... I found her when she was about 6 months in our street... problably she was a runaway.. she was starving she had flees... now she is a sweetest cat who likes to go out at day and being at home at night.


    so last but not least of our cats is Teddy... a british shorthair of 14 months .. i got her when she was 7 weeks old from a particulier breed... dad and mum were having a pedigree... her dad calls ch.mister Loup leroy ter wulvergracht a real bear


    we had to put down our former sheltie xeno two weeks ago cause of cancer and other medical problems and at the same time we adopted a small guy calling Timmie (1,5 years old)... he is a rescued dog from spain...they found him on a beach of gibraltar starving ... searching... when they catched him they brought him to a deadshelter (shelters where they let those dogs starving to death if they are not rescued intime by certain organisations)... so he was one of the rescued ones.. he was adopted by people from the neatherlands but the small guy had a inflammation of his bladder so he peed a lot in their house ... they putted him away all day long in a cat cage in the bathroom.. pitty for the dog after 2 weeks his new owners dumpted him again by the rescueorganisation again.. they didn't wanted him anymore... He came from spain to the netherlands on 17 of june 2012 and begin march he was already in a intakeshelter of the organisation... so i knew my own dog would be gone and i was looking to some shelterdogs and suddenly i have seen Timmie's picture and fell inlove... nothing could stop to adopt him .. he is a sweet little guy, playfull, loving, sometimes bit naughty... but very lovely.. the only trouble i have at the moment with him .. the cats are afraid of him because he barks on them and they dont get along with timmie even he likes to kiss them from time to time...

    Welcome Miranda. My name is Ellie and I live in the U.S. in the small state of Delaware - right on the Atlantic Coast. I presently have the 2 dogs that you see in my siggy picture -- Sparky is a ShihTzu and Myndi is a Pomeranian and both are seniors and doing well for their age.

    Love the pics of your crew - and especially Timmie of course. He looks just like a little terrier mix I had many years ago All of the PT community loves to see pictures of everyone's pets, so feel free to post as many and as often as you like. I'll be looking forward to seeing more.

    Hello, Miranda and your pet family! Welcome to PT! Your kitties and Timmie are so sweet!

    Aaahh, I have been defrosted! Thank you, Bonny and Asiel!
    Brrrr, I've been Frosted! Thank you, Asiel and Pomtzu!

    ahhhhh Timmie is very sweet to us except to the cats .. but we will give it time .. we dont forget he is here only two weeks and never lived with a cat(s) before... he was only one year when he was found at that beach and they suspect he lived at a patio in spain never lived in anyones home... so further on he lived a while in a shelter and came half february to netherland where he lived between 13 dogs .So that little guy has to learn a lot..

    *L* This morning his breathe was smelling to menthol ... i liked it the cats jumped the candybox on the ground and timmie eaten the candy ...


    ps: is there a topic to post some pictures of yer pets?
