    New From Texas!

    Hi, I live in SW Texas with my 2 dogs, Abby and Deputy. Plus, 3 cats, 9 goats, 6 chickens, and 1 miniature horse. I volunteer at two local shelters and have always been an animal lover.

    HI! I'm Sandie. I live in Rhode Island. I did TNR with feral cats and kept every kitten I trapped -- I was supposed to socialize them and adopt them out. I already had 5 cats when I started volunteering, when I had 11 cats, I stopped that volunteer work.

    So I signed up to foster with a bichon frise breed rescue. AND adopted each and every dog they sent to me. I've had 9 bichons in 6 years. I currently have 3, the others have passed on.

    I also keep a fresh water aquarium, and have several bird feeders outside all winter long.

    Glad to have you with us!
    I've been BOO'd!!
    Thank you Karen, for fixing my siggy!

    *wave* I'm Elyse. I'm in the Chicago suburbs where it's pretty cold tonight! I have one cat, Cassie. My dad has a bird feeder and watches the visiting birds all through the year, so I get to see the birds when i go to my parents - they live 2 towns over from me. Welcome to Pet Talk!
    I've been Boo'd ... right off the stage!

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


    "That's the power of kittens (and puppies too, of course): They can reduce us to quivering masses of Jell-O in about two seconds flat and make us like it. Good thing they don't have opposable thumbs or they'd surely have taken over the world by now." -- Paul Lukas

    Thank you all!

    I understand the cat thing. For some reason TNR is hard to start in my area (they want $$$ for the traps and people keep dumping unaltered cats, so the cycle continues).
    All three of my cats were the result of dumped pregnant ones. Two were born in my house and one spent his first few weeks as a feral kitten.
