I think it's unanimous, we all have adorable pets. <br>How about another pet photo parade?<br><br>Here's an entry from the Auman household. Not long after a haircut, Biggerfoot. Probably only about a week.<br>Dickens is the big guy(look at the ear set, former showdog until his hip went bad at 8 months) & Princess the 12 pound tornado from Texas.<br><br>The wine urges me on, the bewitching wine, which sets even a wise man to singing and to laughing gently and rouses him up to dance and brings forth words <br>which were better unspoken.<br>Homer

She is actually very small for an adult cat. She got pregnant at a very early age which stunted her growth and also made her slightly unhinged. Her name is Moppy, Short for Little Miss Moppet (A cat in a Beartrix Potter Book).<br><br>"I'd hate to die twice. It's so boring."<br>- Richard P Feynman, Last Words<br>

Our currently oldest cat, Venice, we acquired fifteen years ago when she decided that it was either us or death. She came to us having clearly given birth to a litter not too long before, but so skinny and small that, the vet said, she couldn't have been more than 10 or 12 months old. She'd lost her litter. She was so bedraggled and full of sores that we were a bit afraid of letting her into the house at first--the other cats weren't too happy at the idea either. She didn't know about litter boxes. She didn't know about playing. All she did was eat and eat for a long time.<br><br>She's still with us, and now must be around 16 years of age. She's learned to play <br><br>And the cats she didn't get along with when we first got her have since passed away. The younger cats think she's the queen of the house--as does the dog, who is at least 10 times her size, but is terrified of her <br><br>edit: we named her Venice because we got her the fall after we'd been to Venice and seen an incredible number of feral, half-starved, diseased cats there. It's a gorgeous city, but they need to do something about their cat population. Maybe they have doe since we were there.<br><br>Great wits are sure to madness near allied.--John Dryden, "Absalom and Achitophel"<P ID="edit"><FONT SIZE=-1><EM>Edited by yoyo52 on 11/06/02 10:47 AM (server time).</EM></FONT></P>

Funny thing about the cats in Venice. My honey told me that when he was growing up in Italy, cats were not considered pets and were not usually kept in the house. They were kept in the barns or underneath the house where they stored their grains a veggies to keep away the rats and mice. They never fed the cats.<br><br>
