@frank-ross Lacey is sure a pretty girl!  All our dogs lived long. . . And there's just something special about having long relationships with animals.

@david-bennett What else could Sally do if there was no dog to point to as the culprit?  haha

Yesterday while Karen and I were watching football on TV our young cat, Sally, sauntered in from what we call the "computer-music room and lay innocently on Karen's lap. During a commercial I went in to that room and found turkey feathers scattered all over the floor. Sally had found the stash I thought was well enough out of the way.  As I was picking them up Sally poked her head in the doorway and had this look on her face like, "What in the world happened here?"

Here is Lacey on her 18th birthday. She used to be a P1020939 2.JPGbig fan of my dulcimer playing but is mostly deaf now. She is still pretty active - likes to watch the leaves falling and the birds at the feeder. She can't jump like she used to and here is a picture of her using the steps I made for her so she can get up on the bed.lacey demonstrates.JPG

Don't you get a kick out of getting up in the morning and walking into the kitchen and finding the latest creature that the cat has brought in for your inspection?  A beautiful creature but one that can deliver a nasty bite if so inclined.  I took him/her out to the edge of the deck and let it go, it was not injured but not really happy either.

We have a writing desk with a writing space that drops down, it is next to a table that our 'puter is on.  For the last week or so on the desk I had a primary turkey feather that I put there waiting to get around to doing something noter/droninsh with.

 The other night, my wife had already some to bed, while I was taking care of business on the 'puter, Sally snuck up behind me on the chair I was in and stealthily got on the writing desk to my left, and quick as a wink snatched the turkey feather and went dashing off with her prize.

 

 I let her think she got one over on me, figuring I'd later find the turkey feather with her stash of kitty toys, wadded up paper, and other treasures she's collected.

 

When I finally went to bed I found that turkey feather laying on top my sleeping wife.

Sally Ann has filled out very nicely. Looks like she grew a sleek new coat, too.  love

and- my oh my, those are two beautiful dulcimers!

Our 3 cats seem to like it when Brian and I play tunes... as we begin to play they casually* saunter into the room (*so we won't know they actually approve of something we do) ...and they take up positions in various chairs. As though their appearance was all accidental.

However, our red cat Rufus detests my pennywhistle playing... at the very first note he races out of the room. I can't really blame him.  earplug

Here's a side by side comparison of Sally Ann from 11 May and today (I have this in the correct forum today).

In the top photo Sally is checking out my 1931 Uncle Ed Thomas reproduction made by Kevin Messenger and in the bottom one she is looking at my 1915 Uncle Ed Thomas reproduction made by John Knopf.

Our previous furball, Peachy, really enjoyed it when I'd play my dulcimer and would contentedly watch me play for the longest time she'd even ask me to play. So far Sally Ann doesn't have a lot of interest in the instrument or listening to it much, though she did the other night. I think right now for Sally Ann everything in the world is too new and interesting to sit around and listen to me play music. My guess is when she becomes an adult cat she won't have so much energy and have a more contemplative. And if not, that's ok too!

My way of looking at it is he is saying "Alright, Mr. DeMille, I'm ready for my close-up."  He does so well in having his picture taken.  My daughter is forever taking snaps of him and she seems to catch his good side.

Awwww!  Wish there was a way to get someone in the future related to my present malamutt (husky/malamute mix) as he's got the best of both sets of genes.  How wonderful for you, Patty, to have that relationship to Molly.

Two days before Christmas our cat, Peachy, went to kitty heaven.

We're now in the process of adopting a rescue kitten.  We've made all the arrangements but can't bring her home until she gains some weight, the runt of the litter. I believe she weighs 3 pounds and has to weigh 4 before the rescue organization will let us have her. She's not a lot bigger than my iPhone 6

I will not try and put up all our pets, as we also have five cats, two macaws and a cockatoo. This is what we call "2 and a half springers".

There's Jake, the terrorist, then Gary, the new guy. The black dog is Loretta, who is half springer and half Golden.

Yes, Jim, a Golden Retriever and the biggest I have ever seen. Sadly, he died at the early age of five years. We then got Ben, a Golden Cocker spaniel and then Snowy a Bichon Frise.

I posted photos of our dog, Angus (a Sheltie), and our cat, Shelby (a.k.a. Schlubby, a polydactyl) before, but years have passed.

Angus has been on chemo for cancer since the fall of '16 and had his right front leg amputated just under a year ago. This past fall he was operated on for a torn ACL in is right rear leg. The poor guy has been through so much, but he's still a happy dog. Here's a photo of him last summer, after his fur grew back from the amputation.

Schlubby had a bout of flu in September of '15 and we nearly lost her, but meds and hydration got her through. She remains a small cat, but seems to have an aptitude for Sudoku!

Her name is Lilo and she's an Australian Cattle dog. She has a mind of her own and will put Hazel in her place at times. Hazel is a lot calmer now when we leave her alone, now that we have Lilo.

When I was 18 I got a mutt puppy at the pound, and named him Jasper.  He was a big airdale/shepherd mix but he had the typical scruffy terrier mustache and ears and I loved him.  Jasper was a good dog and I had him til he died peacefully at age 14.

What a sweet memory!!!

Yes Jasper does fit him well!!!!!  Motion doesn't even explain it! LOL
