    We visited our 2 in the shelter before deciding to rescue them and I wanted to take them all home. I wish I could give up work and become a kitty mom.
    As we live in the city and ours haven't been outside since they were found in September, we will be getting them harnesses and letting them have a run in the garden but not letting them roam free. Too many car accidents.
    I want to move to a less urban area near my parents and when my fiancé gets a job again hopefully we will be able to do so. I will consider letting them out properly then.

    I cannot believe I forgot to share this! A couple of weeks ago, a friend of mine brought a baby goat to my office. His daughter is raising her for an FFA (future farmers of America) project. I might never have seen anything so cute in all my life. Her name is Vail, and I asked my husband if we could have one, but it was a resounding no sadly.

    I know!!! I sent this picture to my husband with the text : “I’ve changed my mind about the new dog.” He sent back three words. “No effing goats.” Only he used the real word :lol:

    We just got back from visiting Twix and Luna and Pearl today.
    They are such loves. Luna was outside enjoying the sun and Twix was snuggling with me. He's a snuggle bug.

    I was sleeping with our son in our bed because he is sick and she just came and put her head right on my pillow. That's why the picture is at this angle, I had to back up a bit to get this.

    Awww! She wanted to be with you both!
    My current cat Miso, is not a snuggle bug. He wont even sit on my lap!
    He does not get on the bed like my late Phrix did.
    Oh well, Cats vary! (a shout out to Kenny, wherever he is)

    Haha! I do that too :lol: My regular left hand jewels are off at the jewelers getting repaired, so I’m wearing my sapphire band, pave band, and my moms original tiny 1.5 mm wedding band here.

    My “baby” Noah turns 1 tomorrow! I can’t believe how fast the time flew by. Love his veggie eating, soft-spoken, super brainy (almost human) ways!

    We have no idea what type of mix Noah is, he is a Craigslist find, and I was told he was a “malti-poo”, but my hubby said he is more like a “multi-mutt”. He looks more like a miniature golden retriever/ dachshund mix now because he has a long body. However, his legs are not super short like a doxie, and he is only 18lbs full grown. I should get him DNA tested, but my hubby thinks it’s unnecessary, as long as he is healthy and we love his temperament! Here are a few more pictures of the birthday boy.

    I don’t know Violet. If I can guess I’d say some mix with Persian. Luna got a haircut because her hair was super matted. Luna won’t let anyone near her to comb her hair and it gets very matted. You can imagine how tough it was cutting her hair. Luna and Pearl are precious and very sassy. As all sel respecting cats are lol :lol: As is Twix but Twix loves hugs and closeness more than Pearl and Luna.

    I was going to say part golden retriever! What a face :love: - goldens are my favorite, but my hubby won't let me have one because of the size (we live in a pretty small townhome) and the shedding. Cavaliers have long hair too, but they really don't shed too badly compared to others. How lucky that you got such a wonderful temperament in a young rescue dog! Mine is nuts (the big brown one) - I wouldn't trade her, but she is afraid of EVERYTHING and barks her head off for half an hour any time someone new comes in the house.

    Mildred started rubbing herself against my leg - I'm very happy about this :praise::love:

    We took my parents' rescue shihtzu for a walk today. She is only used to being driven to the park, having a run around and being driven back. My Dad is 70 so I can't blame him. But we walked to the park and back plus having a run around so we did just over 2km. Quite a lot for the chubby pooch and her unfit legs. She does need a haircut and it was pretty warm today (21C) so I should've taken a drink of water for her.

    This is what she looks like when she's just been pampered

    She is here! Darling Nikki was adopted today and we are officially a 3 dog home. Some people have said we’re crazy, but I say the more the merrier!

    Nikki: Black and Tan, 3.5 years old
    Brodie: Blenheim (Tan and white) 2.5 years old
    Rhonda: brown shepherd mix (8 years old)

    I’ll start a new thread for them after we make sure everyone is getting along for good :love:

    I need to know more about this @missy - you take your cat to the store? I've never seen a cat tolerate something like that in real life!!!

    I got my cats a harness/ walking jacket to try so I can take them into the garden. I'm introducing them to it slowly, 5 minutes at a time with treats. I carried George downstairs and showed him the garden with the door open. He was sniffing the air. I need to buy another jacket and some leads/leashes.
    Can't wait to take them outside. :praise:

    My dh was just talking about this the other day. He feels we can train 3 of our 4 cats to take walks outside with us. I OTOH am not so optimistic and doubt we could ever train our rescue kitties who are high strung kitties around anyone besides us. I think it would be cool but I know our cats limitations. Plus being in a busy urban area spells trouble so we are not going to attempt this. At least not with our current furry crew.

    Good luck @LJsapphire and let us know how it goes with your kitties!:appl:
