Every Little bit helps!

As you probably figured out from the
^..^ by my name, I'm a pet person.
I do now and have always run a halfway
house for stay and cast-off pets (not
literally, but it seems like it!)
My sisters' pets were rescued too.

This is Kae's "Hero"...LOOK AT THOSE
WHISKERS! He was a graduation present
for her oldest son several years ago. A
shelter baby, he was little and had weepy
eyes and they thought he might be frail for
the rest of his life...NOT HARDLY! He now
weighs art least 20 lbs and has feet as big as
mine! Lizards fear him!

Oreo is our bloggy doggy and spokesmodel...
(just because she's the only one who will obey
the "sit" command.) She was adopted by Bee...
she was supposed to be a chihuahua... ;} She love
to chase ice bits across the floor and sit on her
dad's shoulder like a parrot!

This is my Sammy. She was adopted by a nice
family after the neighborhood stray had kittens...
then their house burned down and they had to
move into an apt. and could not keep her. She
went to live with her dad's sister who was living
a glamorous life in Venice...when that got old, she
moved back home to go back to school...Sammy
needed a new home and since my Princess had
just died the day before...she became my new

This is Bee's "Jack"...he just turned 21 in June!
And this is what he does most of the day!
He was rescued as a newborn from the trash bin
of a grocery store, with his 4 brothers & sisters.
Bottle fed and the whole nine yards.

Sabrina Fair (her mother is a bit obsessed with the
movie "Sabrina"!) She was rescued from
and she is a tiny little pistol, trashcan tipper overer &
squirrel chaser! She loves to take daddy for a walk
and will sleep like a baby in your arms.

And this is my guy, Dutch. He was a newborn
rescued for the pound with his 3 brothers and
sisters and was bottle fed and cared for during
the entire editing process of the 2nd X Files movie.
I'm very happy Chris Carter decided to only keep
Dutch's brother and not him! I love my little

We can't imagine our lives...

without our furry little monsters!

And we can't imagine...

being forced to leave them...

or give them up!

  2. Aw ♥ ♥ ♥ I love tortoise shell cats and have had 4 in my life time and 3 of them were strays. Maybe it's a coincidence but they always have such unique personalities. I had one who could open the door to get in- never out- just in. ☺
