I thought I would share a couple pics of the loves of my life...............
This is Zeke, he is my 9 year old basset hound. He came to me at 7 months old from Bluegrass Basset Rescue. He loves to wear bandanas! I took this the other day when we were having unseasonable warm weather here in mid-Michigan. Don't you just love those swirls on his butt?
Last summer I was in our local hardware store petting the resident cat and telling the owner and some women shoppers how much I missed my kitty. I had to put Ernie to sleep the first of the year and Zeke and I were missing feline company. Well one of the women said she had a friend so I gave her my number. It seems that a cat was left on the side of the road, duct taped into a card board box and she was giving birth. Shame on her previous owners! She was rescued and homes were found for the kittens but not her. So I adopted her. She was a skinny scrawny little thing, barely 10 months old and already a mom. She weighed 6 lbs when I got her. This picture was taken in October, 3 months after she came to live with us,
And here is a pic of my little girl taken just 2 months later, I named her Slinky. She lost most of her baby hair and grew in a brand new coat. And surprise, surprise, she is part Maine Coon cat. She has a fabulous mane around her neck and down her chest. And such a bushy tail, it is shorter than a normal cat's but very full and luxurious. She is a beautiful cat and such a love.
She and Zeke get along quite well. They play and she is much rougher than he is. She can't resist those big droopy ears of his and he usually gets bit by her. He is a wuss and comes running to Momma when she plays too mean, lol. But they enrich my life and I am truly blessed to have found them.
