My furry family...

I never thought of myself as a cat person, dogs were my thing. Dogs will do almost anything just to be with their owner, their love is never ending, they are always happy to see you. Their silly grins and antics will turn any frown into a smile. I look forward to taking my dog on a walk after work and no matter how tough my day was, my laugh can likely be heard a block away as my dog, in all his excitement, trips and stumbles off the side walk, really he can be quite silly.

And then one day, a visit to the vet with our dog, brought us face to face, with two tiny, little critters, the future Miss Daisy and Dagwood, litter mates, looking for a nice home.

That was then...



















This is now....Miss Daisy helping me in my office. No matter how many times I push her off, if she wants to up there, she will be up there, end of story!




...and Dagwood waiting for a little morsel of something, anything, from my dinner plate. He is a much bigger moocher than his pal Seiko. He meows for " I want out", "I want in", "make it stop raining", "I want a snack", "I'm just meowing to piss you off"... No kidding, he can drive me to distraction. He is the most vocal cat I've ever come across...








And let's never, ever forget my pal Seiko, keeping guard and ready for a good chase, especially if you are a bear, raccoon, squirrel or chipmunk.

Not sure, but I think our Stick Tail could give Seiko a run for his money. Stick has learned that Mom is hard of hearing and had adjusted his vocalizations to make sure he can be heard at night when he is hungry. She always got up to feed him at 6:00 a.m., so he is still consistent with his early morning cries. Wish I could break him of that habit. - Margy

The members of your furry family are so sweet and adorable. We would love to have cats, but we are allergic.
