Our Pets

This is Missy. This is Katelyn's cat. She is a ball of fluff and the biggest snuggler you've ever seen. All you have to do is look at her and she comes on over to your lap. She is 11 years old. Some people say cats have no personality and are not very brilliant but Missy will come when you call her. All of our cats have an individual personality.













This is Millie. I think you all pretty much know Millie. We just got her in August as an early Christmas gift for Chelsea. She turned 2 this October. She is a hilarious little dog, who hates it when Chelsea leaves. Every morning Chelsea starts packing up her backpack, Millie jumps all over her to try to stop her.













This is Nerman. She is Chelsea's cat. Her original name was Smokey but somehow she reminded me of the cat on Garfield who is named something like Nerman. She is a 16 lb. wonder. She is 10 years old and is about the only cat to catch mice. If she kills one, she brings it into Chelsea's room because she's proud of what she has done. She used to purr so loud that the vet couldn't hear her heartbeat over her purring.













This is Sammy. She is 9 years old. We got her when Missy ran away and was gone for 2 weeks. She was kind of a replacement for Katelyn but when Missy came back, she is basically Dave and my cat. We got her on 4th of July, hence the name - Sammy (uncle Sam)














This is Lexi. She is 8 years old and is a combination of black lab, golden retriever and her poor mother was a beagle! She is an outdoor dog but last year, we took her in for the winter months. She loves to be "belly rubbed"


Pets are great. We are real animal lovers here. That's why Chelsea wants to go into a field of animal care. We love all of them.

I LOVE dogs too!! I'm not a huge cat fan for myself, but I like other people's cats. I guess you could tell that I love my dogs like children. I'll be posting more pics of them soon:) And I'm with Dena- lots of poop:)

You have A LOT of animals ! That nerman is a chunk, isn't he !! He's huge !! We only have one cat now and two goldfish. We had a dog, a beagle but she was WAY TOO MUCH WORK ! and our other cat Sammy died a couple of years ago. He was a great cat ! The kids still talk about him. Our current cat, Beaky is almost 10. How long do most cat's live anyway ? Do you know ?

PS ... I left a response to your last comment on my blog in that same comment section.

I love animals too! They make life so much better. I would have to say that Millie is the cutest though! :)

I'm usually a cat lover, but I actually think Lexi is the cutest.
