    Here are the boys on June 22 of last year, the day I brought them home.

    Hardy is on the left, Laurel on the right.


    Here they are today.

    Sounds like a fun early July Are the cats, parakeets and fish all inside? Our finches live outside -- the kitties would be a terror to them otherwise!

    ETA Your avatar is so adorable
    Yep ... they are all inside. The most the kitties do to their "roommates" is watch ... very carefully. Both cats were strays who found this loving family ... and I suppose they know where the livin' is easy and mind their manners with the intriguing roommates. I find it rather amazing as well.

    Thanks for the av admiration. I'm not too graphically inclined so had a little problem correcting the eye color ... but yes ... she is adorable. She is aways just so full of joy, which she is so willing to share it worries me sometimes. People ... even the non-animal people ... can't help but fall for her. I am so lucky and her coming into our lives is a very special gift.

    roses I had a parakeet too as a child ... well really it was my mother's baby and preferred her shoulder to anywhere else ... but ours was blue. It only said a few words, pretty boy, etc,. but wolf whistled at my mother. The birds I'm sitting are on the shy side, and don't talk, but one of them whistles at me !

    lei I love your little what's-his-multi-part-name-today. He has you wrapped around his paw and CatDaddy around the other. Regular little wrap-star that one.

    Unk ... can't comment, as I'm busy Ooohing and Awwwwing too much ! Love those two.


    How's everyone doing with pet foods these days ? I've still got my sweetie on home cooking and she seems to be thriving.

    Unk, on our drive home from Charleston to Birmingham, we saw this sign outside Harlem, Georgia. We stopped, and my better half ran across two lanes of traffic to snap this photo for you.

    We didn't know it was the anniversary of you getting your kitties, but we offer this up as an anniversary gift! Happy anniversary to you, Laurel and Hardy!

    Re: For animal lovers

    I read a book a few months ago (for the life of me, I now can't remember the title), but in the book, the woman has been married for years and her husband leaves her for another woman. She gets a bird and teaches the bird to say: Charles is a horse's ass. The name of her ex. Of course, in the book, the bird comes out with this at the most inopportune times, but it was really, really funny.

    Today is the first annual bring your dog to work day in Québec (or is it Canada?). Not surprisingly, no one is bringing theirs. Still, I can't help but find it discriminatory, what about those who want to bring their cat or snake or gerbil?

    That reminds me - when it's "Take Your Child to Work", we get people complaining about not being able to bring their pets to work. I've come to the conclusion that it doesn't matter what the occasion is - people will find a way to complain about absolutely everything.
