my furry friends

I thought I would share some pictures of the furry friends that occupy my home. They are spoiled, loved, and create big messes for me to clean.

This is Dante. We saved him from a pet store – he was the last of his litter there, and was very sick. He had worms, worms, worms! He was weaned too young, and is a licker/sucker. He is a very demanding kitty. He is 10 years old. He was recently diagnosed with renal disease.

This is Tikki. I got him from a veterinarian’s office. We thought he was a girl at first, but it turns out he’s a boy. He had a different name, so I came up with a new one – “Tikki” instead of “Kitty”. He’s a big, plump boy with fur like a rabbit. He is 11 years old.

This is Angie. We got her from our local German Shorthaired Pointer rescue organization just a few months ago. She is very sweet, a little scaredy-dog. She is about 4-5 years old. I sewed the toy she is playing with – she is constantly tearing up stuffed toys, so I thought I’d take a crack at it. She’s had it about a week, and all the seams are still sewn together.

  1. German Shorthaired Pointers are the best dogs in the world! We have a mix. She (Coda) is GSP and German Shepherd. She just turned five and has a great mix of traits. She too loves to pull all the stuffing out of her toys and she will continue to play with the left over rag until you take it away from her.

    Your kitties are cute too!

  2. Awwww, they are all so cute Mrs. Hope.

    I have 4 cats. They’re all great and make big messes at my house too. I have one that’s a licker and chewer. He chews my hair and electrical wires. He’s been electrocuted already, but hasn’t learned his lesson. We’ve tried everything, bitter apple, hot sauce, nothing keeps him away.
