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.

Szabs, I'm sorry you lost your Dulky. Her picture - the expression on her face - is beautiful.

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.

Thank you all for your kind words, I know all of you understand how important our pets are in our lives.

Lady1 I am really sorry to hear about Patch, my heart is with you, and unfortunately I understand exactly how you and his sister feel .

Lady, I am very sorry to hear of Patch's passing. Our pets are such a part of our family, it's hard to say goodbye to them.

This is Pockets the ferret pretending to be cute.
In reality he's looking to take off a finger.

quogequox, that pic is awesome! haha

Here is my mother's latest addition, Daisy. She was probably 3 months old or so here, really tiny.

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'.

I am loving all the pictures in here, they are all so cute .



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...

This is my sister's rescued Molly. I thought she looked very pretty sitting on the red and black daybed.

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.

Enjoy:
