A toy poodle called Benny (see Gallery).  

He lived in Montana for most of his life but emigrated to England, with my wife.  I doubt he realises how far away he is from his original home.  We talk to him about crossing North America and the Atlantic now and then, but he just looks at us with a puzzled expression.  :roll:

I've got 2 dogs. One is a Lab/Collie mix named Abby, and the other is a German Short Haired Pointer (Mouthfull) named Duke. I've got some pictures of Abby around here somewhere. I'll post them when I get off work if I can find them.

I contend that we are both atheists. I just believe in one fewer god than you do. When you understand why you dismiss all the other possible gods, you will understand why I dismiss yours.

So who are the cat lovers on this forum?  8)

Do you have a cat?  More than one?  Boy or girl?  Name?  How old?

I have an eight month old girl named Boots.  In the pic she was six months old.

Any unusual behaviors?

Boots plays fetch.  I throw things, she runs like lightning to get them and then brings them back to me so I can throw them again.  :)

Sally is a miniature Jack Russell. She does have a classic look about her though.

Rats good. Cats evil. Yup.

Well, the opposite, really, because Asmodean's rats, they are evil and the only cats Asmodean ever met were good. But then, he likes evil, Asmodean does. Even more than he does refering to himself in third person.

Our cat was quite smart. He could unlatch a window and push it open.

Rats should probably fear Sally more than cats.
How about the evil rat eating serpent?
It can be hard knowing where to lay your loyalty.

Anyway I live in what should be a cat free continent.
Keeping an animal for company, feeding it animals killed elsewhere,
clearing away the natives it kills for sport, it seems wrong.

I am definitely a cat person! I have two boys


This is Ollie. He's a ticked tabby and I think he's the best. He was on death row in our clinic (we used to euthanize animals for the SPCA) and one of the girlies rescued him because he was so handsome. She fostered him for a little while, and then, once I started working at the hospital, I adopted him.

He has a seizure disorder, so he needs phenobarb twice a day, and semi-annual bloodwork, but he's worth it (the meds can make him act a little "tipsy", though) . He's "my" boy and gives me cuddles every night before I go to bed. I call him our "gentleman cat", because that's exactly what he's like. He usually hides from strangers and is a very good judge of character.



This is Rocky. He was a barn cat that I adopted a five years ago and was the first "real" pet I've ever owned on my own. He's kind of a douchebag, but I love him. He's "alpha-cat" and has a love-hate relationship with my husband - he only ever really gives my husband cuddles, but he also ambushes my husband's ankles from time to time. He pretty much ignores me.

He's not afraid of anyone, and will usually run right up to someone and say hello if they come in. He knows that our son is "special" though, so he's pretty tolerant of his toddler ways. When people say that cats are planning to take over the world, Rocky is definitely in on this plan.
