From the time we began watching Tom and Jerry on TV, we believed cats and dogs were enemies. Sometimes, that's the case. Other times, it's not.
Charlotte gives kisses to Grace, who still hasn't gotten used to all the noisy affection. We're working on that.
Do you have any cat/dog stories to share? We'd love to hear them.

Because of all the love and attention lavished on him by both families (and all the time and patience given when needed), Webster handled his second cross-country move with barely a hiccup. He’s also making new people-friends much faster than he used to.
P.S. Webby is my grandkitty and I’m proud to have him as a member of the family.

I gave them a big surprise this morning. Instead of sleeping under the couch in the living room last night, I slept under their bed! It shocked the heck out of Charlotte, too, when she stuck her nose under the bedspread and I bopped her on the nose. (Then again, maybe it was my growl that scared her. She always backs off when I grow1.)
All in all, things are pretty good. Can't wait for Mom to come home so I can sit with her on the couch.

Sandy is a very lovable dog. She is a Husky/Lab mix that can become slightly overexcited at some points but I couldn't live without her all the same. She was eight months old when we adopted her on St. Patrick's Day, three days after my birthday. She is incredibly good with children, no matter what they do. She has never bitten anything but bugs and a mouse (which I think is incredibly helpful). I love Sandy and, again, could not live without her. I hope everyone else loves their pets as much as I love Sandy.

I've known Edie Azzopardi my entire life. She's surrounded herself with animals since childhood, when her orange tabby, Morris, permitted her to dress him up in doll's clothing and parade him around the neighborhood in her doll carriage. She and her family have adopted dogs, cats, and--if memory serves me correctly--things like guinea pigs and reptiles. Oh, and Puff, the ring-necked turtle dove. Edie's husband, Ed, brought Puff home on his shoulder one day from Rockaway Beach. Puff lived for years and years, at least 20, I'm thinking. (Edie, correct me if my memory is wrong.) Thanks to the Azzopardi family for rescuing Tucker and all their other animals, including Patches, the dog.

Here's a picture of our new kitty, Grace, along with two of her former roommates. We adopted her from AniMeals yesterday. For those of you who received the New Baby e-mail from me, you'll be happy to know she's decided to quit hiding in the basement. Instead, she's lying under a table in the living room.

I have always loved animals and, looking back on all the pets who've shared my home, the most loving and memorable are those I rescued either from either homelessness or illness. Not that pedigreed animals purchased from breeders aren't wonderful and loving--but most of them are promised loving homes. The throwaway ones, the ones who follow me around like a shadow (pound-puppy Charlotte), or who climb into my lap each evening for a snuggle (rescued Rottie Tyson), or who obey my every command (pound-puppy Delaney) have special places in my heart because they weren't really throw-aways and they're infinitely grateful that I had the insight to recognize their wonderfulness when other people could not.
