    Re: For animal lovers

    A newly discovered chapter in the Book of Genesis has provided the
    answer to "Where do pets come from?"

    Adam and Eve said, "Lord, when we were in the garden, you walked with
    us every day. Now we do not see you any more. We are lonesome here, and
    it is difficult for us to remember how much you love us."

    And God said, I will create a companion for you that will be with you
    and who will be a reflection of my love for you, so that you will love
    me even when you cannot see me. Regardless of how selfish or childish
    or unlovable you may be, this new companion will accept you as you are
    and will love you as I do, in spite of yourselves."

    And God created a new animal to be a companion for Adam and Eve.

    And it was a good animal.

    And God was pleased.

    And the new animal was pleased to be with Adam and Eve and he wagged
    his tail.

    And Adam said, "Lord, I have already named all the animals in the
    Kingdom and I cannot think of a name for this new animal."

    And God said, "I have created this new animal to be a reflection of my
    love for you, his name will be a reflection of my own name, and you
    will call him DOG."

    And Dog lived with Adam and Eve and was a companion to them and loved
    them.

    And they were comforted.

    And God was pleased.

    And Dog was content and wagged his tail.

    After a while, it came to pass that an angel came to the Lord and said,
    "Lord, Adam and Eve have become filled with pride.
    They strut and preen like peacocks and they believe they are worthy of
    adoration. Dog has indeed taught them that they are loved, but perhaps
    too well."

    And God said, I will create for them a companion who will be with them
    and who will see them as they are. The companion will remind them of
    their limitations, so they will know that they are not always worthy of
    adoration."

    And God created CAT to be a companion to Adam and Eve.

    And Cat would not obey them. And when Adam and Eve gazed into Cat's
    eyes, they were reminded that they were not the supreme beings.

    And Adam and Eve learned humility.

    And they were greatly improved.

    And God was pleased .

    And Dog was happy.

    And Cat didn't give a crap one way or the other.

    PGM: Oh my, that is the sweetest story ever! My older sister's boss dog, named Abby, just went to Rainbow Bridge.

    rattus: That is a great story!

    roseskid: Meowza! What a great looking bird! Super photos!

    Well, it's cold outside and because I have a gravity furnace, it is cold in the basment now too. So little Miss Gracie has been sneaking into my bedroom upstairs and sleeping in a pile of my sweaters on the bench at the end of my bed .

    Unfortunately, she did wake Mr. Tootles and I up this morning by coughing up a furball . So.....what's a little laundry?

    I love us all snoozing together in the same room!

    Re: For animal lovers

    Howdy everyone! Been awhile. Thought I'd give you an update on what's going on around here.

    Ella and Greta are still doing well. They still love each other very much. They still play and sleep together every day. Of course, an empty box and furry mouse are standard playthings here.



    The new love seat seems to be a great place to hangout.



    I introduced you all to mom's new cat not long ago. Unfortunately, the kitten turned out to be too much for mom to handle. As it turned out, when I brought the kitten to my house it was a bit much for Greta also.



    The kitten didn't seem to have a problem. After all, the place is crowded with toys for her to play with.



    And, the kitty is pretty darn cute. I call her Lil' Bit.



    So it wasn't long before a truce was arrived at between Greta and Lil' Bit.



    Within 2 days Lil' Bit had managed to completely win Greta over. Greta became Lil' Bit's surrogate mom.



    The kitten started to feel completely at home by day three. Here she is sitting next to an award and above a favorite vase of mine seconds before she slipped and broke them both.



    Poor Ella is still easily spooked by Lil' Bit so there are no pictures of Ella and Lil' Bit together, but here are some of Greta and Lil' Bit sleeping together.







    Here's a 'look' that reminds me of Mona.



    And in deference to my 'baby', here's a shot of my Ella.

    The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything it's too late to stop reading it.

    Uncle David - They are THE most beautiful pictures. I just love how Greta and Lil Bit sleep all curled up together. My two sleep sometimes on the same piece of furniture, but NEVER all curled up together. These pictures are just adorable!

    Great pictures Uncle David! Too bad it didn't work out for your Mom, but good for you. Oh Greta does NOT look amused in that picture.

    Roses, great hawk photos. Those are just stunning.

    Rattus, that was hysterical.

    Uncle David, love how you told the story with the pictures. And they are too cute. Lil'bit is adorable and love how she and Greta sleep together.

    Waldo has found a stick in the yard and its his new play toy. With the weather cooler, he goes out and picks up his stick and tosses it in the air and rolls over to catch it. I'm thinking he may be a reincarnated baton twirler.

    Anyway, as soon as he goes out, he gets his stick and runs around with it happy as if he'd won the lottery. I guess he has. The stick lottery. Wish I could be as happy with a stick as he is.
