Tammy that is a wonderful story about your children. Pets can be worderful kids for those who chose not to have any kids. They can be just as loving and handfuls. Sounds like you and your husband are very content with them.
See you like the 88 car. I like Dale Jr also

What a story you have Stacie and what a wonderful "zoo" as you put it. Animals are so special. Like your pictures. I assume that's your hubby's race car?

I'm alittle behind with the group sorry. I have my own petting zoo has my husband calls it. We too decided not to have children and we have been married 23 years.
We have at this time 2 dogs, 2 cats, and a guiena pig. They are all my children and I love them alot. When we lost our Great Dane in Dec. it was really bad around here we all where very sad. But we recently adopted another and her name is Penny she takes me for a walk. You want to talk about resistance training no problem. LOL She is 4 years old and a handful. Than there is Simba he is my 8 year old. He is a Tibetan Spaniel looks like a lion we adopted him when he was 6 months old. Than the old man of the house his name is Tuffy he is 16 years old and Tuffy is the mixed cat of the house. Than there is Princeton he is my red head step child hands down. He is the 6 month old kitten. Than there is Nibbles he stays in the cage most of the time and tells you when its time for carrots and lettuce. He's my St. Patricks day guiena pig. That is when his birhtday is. He's a bundle of joy and just as spoiled as the rest.
As my husband and I always say we have our own birth control around and thats enough. LOl Love them all and would not trade any of them. They make me so happy when I get home from work. Plus great exercise too!!!

That is the way my son feels. He is mentally handicapped 52 and lives with me. His dog Grizzly is his child. The only one he will every have. He walks him many times thru the day and When he is outside working in his gardens he takes Grizzly with him and ties him up close by him.

For us the kitties are kind of like our children. We're not going to have any, so we have to have someone small to play games with and spoil. emoticon emoticon

There was much rejoicing!

My son who lives with me has a dog. A Chow. He is my sons dog for sure but still very protective of me. Strangers stay away unless one of us is home but he is very gentle with all the great grandkids as long as we are close by. I feel very safe with Grizzly( named after grizzly adams) LOL in the house. Had a cat but he was too independant. Kept wandering away after girlfriends I think. No longer with us. Hope he has a new good home. Pets are wonderful

Absolutely. When I'm in here on the computer Cali always comes and lies on the bed in here. (The computer room is also the extra bedroom.) She's funny because most of the time you would think that she's my husband's cat, but sometimes she does seem very attached to her mama, too. And we're pretty fond of both cats, too.

There was much rejoicing!

Our older cat Luna is kind of fat, which is why I can't just leave food out for the cats all the time. When I feed the girls Cali eats really quickly and then comes to me for attention, but Luna will just keep on eating until all the food is gone. We keep our cat food in the fridge and when a bag of food is getting low I'll take it out, scoop out the normal amount of food they get, and then put the bag back in the fridge. My husband will just dump whatever's left in the bag into their food bowl....and sometimes that can be a LOT. Even in that circumstance Cali will eat what she wants really quickly and be through, but Luna just keeps on eating until there's no food left. Our cats are both quite spoiled....just in different ways. emoticon

There was much rejoicing!

Naw, your little one isn't spoiled...She's just loved a lot. Thor does try and get fed every time I go to the kitchen, but I have to tell him no 'cause he's a diabetic and is only allowed a certain amt. of prescription food a day and I have to spread it our over the day. I divide his dosage into three-1/4 cup servings each morning and he gets one between 8 am and noon, then 1 to 5, then 6 to 1 am. He gets 8 units of insulin at noon and midnight. What a trooper!

I can't shut LVBG out of the bedroom because she'll chew the carpet outside the door. (No, she's not the best behaved kitty I've ever had emoticon ) And as for waking up to feed her at 2:30, I have to get up at 3:30 to go to work anyway so for us it's not really such a strange thing to do. My biggest problem with it is that I'd really like to sleep until 3:30 as much of the time as possible, not get woken up by a spoiled cat who wants me to feed her every time I walk by the kitchen. It's a good thing she's so sweet and cute....

There was much rejoicing!

Thor will come into the bedroom and stay with us for about an hour and then he wants me to get up and feed him too. He doesn't get any food after 1 am when we go to bed.(We're night owls) I have to close the bedroom door or he'd be in there constantly and we'd never get any sleep.

Wow no cat should need to eat at 2:30. Maybe you need one of those automatic feeders for her. Especailly since she is no longer a kitty she is a cat now since she is two and a half years old. Think she is the one who has you trained.

We've got Luna the gray tabby cat who is about five years old and Cali the little calico who is about two and a half years old and for very good reasons is also known as Little Very Bad Girl Kitty. LVBG is the one who wakes me up an hour early, regardless of what schedule I'm working, so that she can try to get me to feed her early. At this rate, she may not have a very long life....

(Okay, I'm really just kidding with that last part about whether or not Cali is going to have a long life. She's my little sweetie girl, but I'm not overly fond of her when she wakes me up too early in the morning for food. And just for the record....who feeds their cats at 2:30 in the morning anyway??)

There was much rejoicing!

I've been taking it easy today, too. I'm off work all week emoticon and I've got to get things around our place organized and cleaned up. And with any luck I'll get a bit more sleep tonight without kitties waking me up really early in the morning to try to get me to feed them. emoticon I went to the grocery this morning and bought veggies. In a little while I'm going to start cutting them up so that I can steam them for our dinner. Oh, what an excieing life I lead.... emoticon

There was much rejoicing!

Cars are wonderful when running well but when the're not, they're a pain. Hope it's nothing major.

I'm getting over a sore throat and a 100.4 fever. I felt terrible yesterday..there wasn't a part of me that didn't hurt, but today the sore throat is pretty much gone and my fever has come down to normal now. I;m not doing much today..then I sold be back to normal tomorrow, whatever "normal" is! emoticon
