The cast of characters....







So that you can all keep up (because I do refer to them all a lot), here is the run down on the animal members of my household.



Please note that at any given time, we may also be harboring furry guests for vacationing friends & family.

Elephant the Cat

Named by my niece, Kayleigh while she was going through a very “concrete” period in her young life when it came to naming things...Elephant was born grey – hence Elephant. His littermate was striped – was named Tiger. And then there was her turtle – Green Apple. I believe this concrete period coincided with the period in which she asked my sister to have her name changed to “Rainbow Fish”.

Elephant was MY cat until I started dating my now husband. Now, if Danny is around – I am invisible.

Peetie

Emotionally, very needy. He is a momma’s boy. He also has a severe “cookie” addiction.
It’s a problem.







HATES it when we dog sit!






Copper




Peetie’s littermate. She is a very sweet, lovey little girl. She only has 3 legs and she always has a look on her face like someone just yelled at her or beat her - - but that is the look she has always had – even when she had 4 legs.
She is a Daddy’s girl.
Her nickname is "CRAZY!"

Henry
My husband’s prized German Shorthair Pointer. This is definitely a man’s man dog! He hunts with my husband and basically worships the ground he walks on - - following him everywhere around the house and even waiting for him outside the bathroom door.


LOVES it when we dog sit!


Sheldon the Wonder Turtle

My 9 month old Red Ear Slider - - my newest obsession! Turtles ROCK!
