Haven't posted in a while so here's pile of cats. Ming is the other siamese and Big Boy is the tabby. And the new little guy is Bo a lilac siamese. He's way too funny - he literally bounces around my apartment - his new little quirk (other than climbing up my four bikes in the other room and scrambling from seat to seat and handlebars ...) is to run after me quickly and as soon as I open the fridge - he's in it, turns around sits and stares up at me. He's a small 3-1/2 months old. He is a rescue - found by a friend's friend as he wobbled out from behind a dumpster in a hospital parking lot - extremely thin and covered in fleas. When he opened his mouth to meow - nothing came out. I could barely hear him when I got him.




The second day he was in my care -- in my office awaiting his first of several vet appointments.

The prodigal kitty has returned! I caught him in a live trap last night and brought him inside. He raised a ruckus last night (I locked him in the guest bedroom), but calmed down and purred when I sat on the bed with him. Mango hid under the couch for most of the night, though- I guess Pumpkin didn't smell right.

I took Pumpkin to the vet to be checked out this afternoon. Aside from a slight case of fleas (curable) and a couple broken claws (which will grow out), he's OK. He's been eating and drinking just fine. Mango has come out and sniffed him, so they're getting to know each other again. Yippee!!

Mango helps with Bike Forums:

Sadly, Sam passed on Sept. 30th. We are heartbroken. Here he is on his last day.



We got Cody a week later, he's now 3 months old. He is a handful:



We miss Sam so badly, but we can't bring him back. We can only try to love a new doggie. And we are falling for Cody already.

We are so sorry to hear this... Sam seems to have been one hell of a good friend.

We love Goldens here... it is a tough kind of love as their time with us is all too short compared to so many other breeds.

The new boy looks like trouble.

I'm glad Pumpkin has returned home!

Sorry to hear about Sam, pcad. Pets become part of the family and a piece of you goes missing when they pass on.


A recent shot of my boys.

Sonny (top) and Oliver playing in our loft. Sonny has cancer, and had one limb amputated, but he still kicks ass (and has proved the vet wrong by living longer than expected).

We reserve walks for warmer weather and only Talouse the Senegal likes the harness... Lucce likes visiting the pet store in his carrier and is a really sociable fella who likes pretty much everyone.

It was -24 C here this morning... even the dog did not want to go out and she likes the snow and can handle a fair bit of cold.

Our new baby arrived tonight... I have known Pearl since she was a fledgling and my daughter decided to buy her from the shop where she works and where I work with the birds.

This makes for a pretty smooth transition and when Pearl wakes up tomorrow she will be with her favourite people.
