Winter has arrived in our home!
« on: November 23, 2017, 05:19:56 pm »
I came home a few days ago to find "Winter" had arrived. Unbeknownst to me we had adopted a third cat named Winter from the SPCA! :o
He is pure white except for a single grey patch or cap on his head. I suggested we rename him Jasper instead of that other name associated with cold and snow.
We now officially qualify as a petting zoo, 2 dogs, 3 cats, and a rabbit.

It's official, his name is now Jasper. He tires himself out tormenting everything else in the house. ;D

Wife just took in a cat from my son...   Friendliest cat I have ever seen. He meows CONSTANTLY if he isn't in your lap or close to you. when you come home he RUNS to you yowling like he missed you SO MUCH...  My son named him Nacho, because everyone wanted to keep him, and he was always saying... That's NOTCHYO cat!  I'm NOT a cat person at all, but this little guy was SO persistent, that my wife did catch me a couple times with the little bugger laying in my lap.   That was sort of embarrassing...

One of our cats is named Nacho cause of his colour. He has extra toes on all his feet.

My Aunt and Uncle had a cat with six toes on all four feet!  Called him Big Foot.  One of his male kittens had all the extra toes so they called him Son of Big Foot.  Not too original but kind of funny.  Those cats seemed to live forever, but on a farm maybe that's expected.  Good to "hear" from you Perry.  Ted

Definitely Lee!   Bears are pretty smart critters. I think they can smell guns!  Went to Maine, took guns, waited for bear... no bear. WIfe had her 20 gauge loaded with high brass buckshot. She was REALLY MIFFED the bear tore her back door off and was looking for compensation in the form of a bear rug.
