With all the ugliness in the world today, isn't the TOTAL/unconditional love you receive from your pet, welcome/refreshing?
Chiquita . She’s a lover girl
And Jasper. He’s not quite done being a kitten.
Chiquita has the "whatsup" look, while Jasper has the "I'm just about the climb the drapes" look about him.
Nailed it! You’re very perceptive, Wine.
My relentless early morning alarm clock.
Two different colored eyes? Beautiful cat!
She was supposed to be a purebred, but I'm thinking something else got in there....
Yayay for vacuums that come when called! I don't know what'd I do without mine.
He looks very huggable :)
This is “Old Man Duke” husky/lab he is good for picking up things on kitchen floor as I cook
Oh what a handsome man!! I am a sucker for doggies! Before I was a "cat mom", I had several dogs!
I need your dog in my kitchen. He's a cutie.
Bacco looks awesome! So cute!
Lovin Bacco! I love his snarky lips, he knows you want him to smile, however, this is all you're going to get right now!
That sweet face!
That surprises me, too. Would love to know why.
Very surprised to see more cats than dogs featured here. All of our four legged friends are worthy to feature here. For some of us, they are our children.
It's difficult to rent with a dog. Easier with a cat.
I live in a condo complex where nearly 60% of the units are being rented out, but it's one of the few in town where pet ownership is accepted. This makes it a very popular place, and if any unit opens, it's gone within a day. What blows me away is that quite often, the smallest units have the most pets. Three dogs in a tiny one-bedroom is a bit bonkers.
I love animals, especially cats, and I've had a cat in the past. Some people around here, though, you wonder about.
Upstairs there was a couple in a one-bedroom unit with two dogs, both large. One was a seeing-eye dog (the Mrs was mostly blind and could only see through a very narrow "tunnel"), and, of course it was a beautiful, well-trained animal. The other was a large English bulldog they got as a puppy, but it was never trained properly, probably because Mr was working long hours at his factory job, and Mrs couldn't see what it was up to. Anyway, it was up to Mrs to take the dogs out for walks, first one, then the other. The seeing-eye dog was no problem, but on two occasions I saw the bulldog bolt at something or other, and poor Mrs wound up getting dragged behind him, holding onto the leash for dear life.
When I moved here in 2016, Mr was driving a fairly new Dodge Ram pickup, but after they got the bulldog, he sold it and got a new one with an extended cab seating six--and all the bells and whistles beside. I complimented him on it, and he explained that the extended cab was needed for the dogs. I thought to myself, man, that's a lot of dough to blow to accommodate a dog that drags your wife around, but I kept my peace.
Then they suddenly got saddled with the care of a niece (4) and nephew (15): Mr's brother and sister-in-law got thrown in prison for extended sentences (drug-dealing). The extended cab proved to be needed after all, but now there was a couple, two kids, and two large dogs in a one-bedroom. They lived like that for three years.
When they moved out, I discovered that the unit was actually owned by Mrs' elderly parents, and they had been renting it out to their blind daughter at a steep discount. I met them, so I learned that Mr and Mrs had bought a house, and the elderly parents were having the old unit renovated before selling it. I led gradually into the topic of the dogs, and commented that I had twice seen their daughter getting dragged. They both did a classic eyeroll, "Yeah, we've seen it too, can't figure it out--and she's so defensive about it, you can't say anything bad about it, even though it's uncontrollable and has chewed up practically all their furniture..."
I think everyone has a tale or two about people who are just a little too nuts about their pets.
Rosie a rescue dog with sever anxiety shes terrified of people she doesn't
What a wonderful-looking dog! Can you share her/his name?
I know I am one very handsome, very sexy, and extremely distinguished man! (cat)
I am spoiled, like no other. I talk a lot, and because my Mom has always said 'aw, my baby Mama loves you, etc., I call her by name, Yup, I say the word "Mama", every time I see her!
Another pic of Simon Ian...he has always crossed his arms like this. He is laying on one of the large cat scratchers they have, it's shaped like a giant cactus! He also looks a bit stoned because before people come for the Renos, I give him a cat "Xanax"!

Our loyal furry friends
with unconditional love
never fail to bring joy.
My mates. They are wild and will happily kill you if they feel threatened but they know they are safe here. There's water and if they ask nicely they get an occasional slice of bread.
Bonded pair from the shelter, seven at time of adoption. (Two years ago) Tiger (the black one) and Rory (the other one) . Not crazy about the names but Tiger clearly answers to her name so I'm stuck with that. Rory became "The cat formerly known as Rory" until recently when I settled on Penelope. Why Penelope? It just makes me laugh, And it fits her. She's definitely a Penelope.
My Maine Coon boy.
My last dog passed over rainbow bridge, and I decided the expense of another was too much.
Then the cats started arriving. They just turn up and hang about. Feed the hungry, neuter, vet, deflea, it goes on..... What did I do to deserve that? They cost more than the dogs ever did!
I love them really.
@More wine, less whine He's big, but when he's had his annual "number 5" trim, he looks much smaller.
I am partly nocturnal, yes.
@cath beautiful Cath🥰
Love Maine Coons. If I ever get another cat, that's the kind of beast I'll get.
I shuuuure do!
