Wordful Wednesday ~ Our Zoo

This is the Princess with Charley, her birthday kitten.

She LOVES this little boy! And he has fit in so well at our zoo home.







This is Charley cuddling up with Suzie, our 14 year old dachshund girl who thinks she's Charley's new Mommy. They love each other!





Our girl cat, Lilly, HATED him on sight. She was also furious with all of us for allowing that little vermin into our home. She literally would not look at us or allow us to pet her! But she's come around, accepting our adoration now and tolerating Charley. I think they'll end up friends.


We're so glad we have Charley in our family. Now Ladybug wants a kitten, too! What's one more four-legged friend, at this point? (seven, if you're counting. haha!) And Spiderman wants an iguana. I love all different animals, so I think it's great! I always wanted a big enough house to have many different animals and now we have it. Who knows what animals lurk in our future!

Awwwwwwww, I do so ♥ cats!!! Cats rule.

My Wordful is all about three ships that went sailing across the seas to discover America. And they're all here in our city. [replicas that is]

Come on over for a blog visit, I'd love to have your company today.

Pretty cat...but I'm allergic to them! They make me swell up like a puffer fish! :)

Your daughter looks like she's in Heaven with Charley...so does your doxie! Definitely friends for life all the way around!

Adorable! I bet your children just love it. I think it's wonderful when children get to grow up around animals :)

How sweet, my kids have been after me for a kitten too, but we really don't have the room with our two big dogs. Zoos are fun, just not in close quarters. ;)

So cute!
My teen wants a kitten. Can you believe that? A teen boy wants a kitten. LOL He just loves our Gatso that much. I'm glad he's a cat person like me! HeeHee
I am amazed how well your doggy took to the kitten. WOW!

I am a dog person, but I do miss having kitties around now that I am so allergic. :( My last one was a siamese when I was in middle school and I loved her with all my heart.

Jennifer said...

Aw--they're all so cute! I love that the dog and kitten are getting along so well.

I love the kitty. I love that the cat and dog snuggle up. All of my cats can't stand my dog.

And Nicki wants a bearded dragon and a rat.

Love the kitty, I love black kitties! They are always so regal looking!

Aleta said...

Awww, what a cute kitten! I love animals. I used to tell my Mom when I was a little girl that I was going to buy a house and fill it with cats. (No, I didn't do that - just one cat and Greg's dog)

Swirl Girl said...

Love those pictures.!!!

We have one cat on his way out, I'm pretty sure. The trouble with kittens is you never know what you're going to get personality-wise. We've had some sweet little gems and some ornery cranks. Glad you got a
winner! :)

Cute pictures!

Awww! I love other people's animals!

iMommy said...

I'm sorry. Cats terrify me.

::running away scared::

Cats. Dogs. Fish. Even the mice up in my attic.

Love 'em all.

OK, I take that back. The snakes in my attic love the mice . . . and so do the cats roaming my neighborhood.

That is one gorgeous kitten! I'm in love!

I love me some kitties - we've got 3 of 'em, but my husband wants a dog - a puppy even. Ugh!!!

I like dogs - I really do, and puppies are SO darling, but we've had so many bad experiences with them and I just don't wanna do it again. They can be SO destructive and such a lot of work and hassle. Shoot, I'd take the iguana over the dog any day!
