I will be away from the computer over next weekend so decided to have this theme go for two weeks.

The theme is PETS AND OTHER ANIMALS.

Because it's over the fortnight you can post THREE photos but they must be on seperate days.

This is our little mutt, when she was a baby:
She's a King Charles Cavalier x Toy Poodle cross.

They're both so cute!

At one of the homesteads we stayed at. Not really pets, but they behaved as if they were - all 30 plus of them!

Oh how cute all these animals are! Ght, your mutt is adorable.

Here's cookie, our Cavalier King Charles, looking a bit wet and bedraggled after a dip in the sea at Doélan this afternoon:

Here are my two babies, Miette (calico) and Winston (tabby), snuggling on the couch together. This picture was taken when Winston was still a kitten - he's much bigger than Miette is now!

This is Gnawra, found in the village rubbish bin and of dubious parentage. Has more than a hundredfold repaid her rescued status in general guarding work (snake catching included) and of course in great entertainment value.She smiles all the time.

The late Samson, most vicous family pet ever but could also be so loving, sadly some nice person decided they hated cats and fed slug pellets to samson and 7 other cats in the area. Sadly they were never caught, if they had been they would have been eating slug pellets themselves

Ren, I swear that animals know when they've been rescued, and never forget the close call they had.

"Come a lil closer, and I'll put another smudge on yer lens!"



Heidi, another rescued dog. Heidi is my shadow, and will follow me around even when I'm just aimlessly wandering the garden, camera in hand. I can't count the times I've cleaned my lens, thanks to her.

I'm sure many people remember Lucy, who turned up in a cat trap when my friend's cat escaped into my garden and discovered another one as a result. She arrived in November 1999 and left us last June, no one was quite sure how old she was when she arrived so may have made a good age.

I remember Lucy well, David. Such a pretty one.
Another thing about the rescued brigade, Mags, I am sure they have a built in mechanism for making you laugh. What a hoot that picture of Heidi is!

I think I could handle coming back as any one of the FTers animals!

Welcome magicjeanie. What an expression on Jarvis's face! He's lovely.

Good to see you posting again, jmorrow. Bad Max, down Max! *gives Max a pat*

I'm really enjoying each and every picture here. It's really wonderful to be able to see our members' pets, our family members that we can show. For me, it brings a personal level to the photo threads, a peek inside the family.

This is my sweet Dulky, who sadly passed away just two weeks ago, after spending the last 13 years with me, I found her when she was only about 3 weeks old, and she never left my side, my house and my heart feel so empty without her.

My sincere condolences Szabs.



My mother's "hobby" is rescuing cats. This is Ziggy, her latest rescue. Ziggy hates cameras and it has proved almost impossible to get a decent photo of him. The minute he sees anyone with a camera, he's off like a rocket.

This is my new guy, Mr. Middlemarch. Let me say, too, that when he is not peeking out from behind shower curtains fetchingly? He shows signs to have missed his true calling: that being recruited as a tackle for the New York Jets . He's managed to 'back out' of that collar at least three times a day, too (which is, each time, hysterical to watch happen ). We're adapting, though ...

I have missed a months worth of photos and themes. I am so glad that I checked in today; what lovely pets you all have. Szabs, my sincerest condolences to you for losing your Dulky.

This is Alex, who I rescued one year ago this week. He has proven to be a charming, and very lovable addition to this family. And ClaraSue has finally accepted him in all ways. i.e. She allows him to sleep next to her.

My condolences, szabs, it's very tough to lose a companion.

This is Ralph.



Ralph lives in Sussex, and was adopted by the Revenge of the Llamas team. I'm sure he thought it very odd to be visited by a woman who sometimes pretends to be a rabbit pretending to be a llama but he was far too polite to mention it.

Szabs, I'm sorry to hear about Dulky. She was beautiful.

I love all the pictures. Everyone's cats and dogs are so cute!

Here is my kitty Kiara. She loves going out to the balcony and looking at the sunlight reflecting on the ceiling.

So sorry Szabs, I know how difficult it is. I lost my Jack Russel, Patch two weeks ago today. She had lived with us for 11 years. Her sister is missing her like mad too.

This is Crookshanks, allegedly my daughter's cat, but I have the dubious privilege of feeding him, grooming him, cleaning his litter box etc. At night, I usually check my emails before going to bed, then I turn off the computer, feed him and our other cat Misty, then retire for the night. He has now associated the sound of the computer with food. Now, if I turn the computer off, no matter what time of day it is, he comes running and demands to be fed, hence his nickname of 'Pavlov'.

This is Stanford, one of his favorite places to be is on the windowsill of my office, looking in on me as I work on the computer. Because he spends so much time there he even has a basket and a bowl full of biscuits in order for him not to have to go too far .

Lol, Mother Goose!

I'm really enjoying the pictures and the stories about all of the pets (and bonus points for the lizard pic ). I've noticed that the cats seem to have more interesting names than the dogs -- not sure what that says about cat people...

My contribution: Here are Squirmer the Wyrm and Circe Bastet watching the mysterious outdoor world they never get to visit...

When given a choice, I've always named my cats after characters from ancient Roman history or mythology (e.g. Tiberius (Tibby for short) and Augustus). Sometimes they already have a name when I acquire them, like our cat Misty.

Crookshanks was named by my daughter after Hermione's cat in Harry Potter. I have the book 'Middlemarch' (haven't got around to reading it yet but I saw the miniseries on TV). Would love to know why Gatsby chose that particular name!

Too funny, Mother Goose -- we use mythology too! Thus we have Loki Bastet, Luna Anubis, Circe Bastet and Squirmer the Wyrm -- Norse, Greek, Roman and Egyptian mythology. Must have something to do with cats being such mystical creatures

I wondered where three of my fingers had gone.

Here's one that I may have posted before, but some may not have seen it. Our two Shepherds, Rudi and Kimber.



Rudi's the one on the left. He's now an old man at nearly 10. Kimber is now just over 5.

I'm sure you all realise that members of the Revenge of the Llamas team are extremely smart, well-groomed, and attentive to their personal hygiene.

Well, there's always one...

I just took this photo this weekend, and seeing as it fits the theme, I thought I'd share it with you guys because I really liked it.

A pretty tuxedo cat relaxing on the steps in Villefranche-sur-Mer, France.

Wow ! That Villefranche-sur-Mer looks like s/he could be a long-lost (with an accent) sibling of my new Middlemarch kitty!

Today I, as I was driving down a country lane, I was surprised to see this handsome chap staring through the fence.

Judging from the look of this seagull swimming around the waterways of Stockholm, I think he had too much white wine with the fish

You're right - they do look similar! Perhaps your cat comes from a line of noble French felines?

When I was on vacation in Europe last year I'd try to take a picture of a cat whenever I saw one, so I have several pics of European cats; however, this French cat was the prettiest of them all!

Not a very good picture but one I just had to share. This is ClaraSue saying "don't touch me again or you'll lose that hand". No, she wouldn't do that, we were just playing and that's her mean look.

Oh. My. God! There are Middlemarches everywhere! Such good looking cats, too. My version of one is humbled looking at all his 'kin' here, indeed. Suddenly he's not so *special*, after all! Well, so I say. He has a different story about it, it seems. His tuxedo is the only one that matters. He's totally firm on the issue. And won't let anyone soon forget it, either ....

Cats are big fun, aren't they ?

Some of you may remember Kasey, the sweet but emotionally muddled old girl I took in back in December 2007. She knew so much, yet maintained barriers I could never understand. She frequently made faces much like ClaraSue's above, but unlike ClaraSue, Kasey wasn't kidding. She died in May, after quietly becoming a treasured friend. This picture is from the day she learned that if she jumped on the table, she could keep an eye on what her human pals were doing around the yard. She was so smugly proud of her feat!
