Awesome. What breed is Crowley?

Crowley is a poodle/cocker spaniel mix, otherwise known as a Cockapoo.

My Bengal cat Kazador (Kazy) hanging out with my daughter Teagan who is trying to pretend to be a cat.

Just remember - both of your mammals WILL eat out of a bowl on the floor with their faces, but you will still love them.

GOod luck with the kitten, Arovin. Cool points for taking her on.

No pictures yet, but there's going to be an adoption event this weekend.

All the cats rescued from that ranch by the ASPCA have had vet checkups and so on, and are priced to move, at $10 instead of the usual $50+ adoption fee. Three locations, Jacksonville, Clearwater, and Sarasota.

It's going to be very hard not to add a 3rd member to our family this weekend. My wife is trying to not even go. I just want to look, but she thinks that looking will end up guaranteeing we bring one home.

I think she's right. And I still think you should go.

@Strangeblades - it was just basil, but our cats turn into herbivores whenever there's any greens around - Alexis was trying to use the terrarium as a way to grow basil without feline interference.

Keep in mind, these guys hate each other. But sometimes the benefits of a little ass-to-ass napping outweigh personal grudges.

If there were ever a cat that I would want, it would be a Bengal. Probably for about five minutes, just because they look cool. I hear they're a nightmare.

We found this little one at the pound about a year ago.

Her name is Foxy. We think she's part Wire Fox Terrier and Jack Russel.

Here's all the cats. Ok just 40 breeds, but still.

No link from me. But imagine a half italian greyhound / half short-haired chihuahua puppy...that grew to be 28 pounds of awesome.

(Cross-posted from the video thread...)

For some inexplicable reason, our cat, Saru, does this every night when we go to bed...

RangerRick, if I could do that every night, I for damn sure would.

I've already got the scratching myself part covered.

That is funny. Never seen a move like that out of my cats. They climb all over their tree, but that's... different.

Ours do similar things with their tree, but lately they've taken to getting so excited that they fall over the side.

Cats like to be seen scratching. I guess if you're the only ones around, you're gonna get the show.

Our cat Demi does something similar, but she's a bit clumsy and usual just ends up falling off the tree. She gets these spurts of energy, usually at night when we're getting ready for bed, but they can hit her at any time that we call "her crazies". She'll run laps around the house going through the family room to the dining room to the kitchen (skidding on the floor, sometimes into the wall) and back through the family room. Round and around. Sometimes as she passes through the family room she'll jump on the tree and do a crazy flip over the side and then just keep on running. If we're in the basement watching TV it sounds like a horse is galloping through the house.

Yeah we get those outbursts in pairs with our two cats. Chase, chase, chase all around the apartment. Knocking things over, skittering on the kitchen floor and generally burning off energy.

I think someone needs to design a kitty-cat GoPro camera rig and film the crazies.

We get the crazies x5! Kitty zooms.

I get this with mine too. i dubbed it "Mad Puss Brains". It usually ends with a screaching halt followed by "rowww rowww rooooooo!". She then flops down exahusted breathing heavily. Poor dear is 17, she's not exactly a kitten anymore.

Yeah, Saru and our other cat, Haku, get the crazies too, but mostly Saru. She'll be sitting there and then put her ears back, flip her head, and decide she needs to tear ass to somewhere else in the house. It's hilarious.

Watson (beagle) and his best friend Harley (war beagle) play tug of war, sort of.

ALL OF THE PETS!

Damn, that's pretty good that you can reach your chin with your foot.

It occured to me I've never posted pics, so here they are. We've had them for almost 3 years now and these are from when we first got them. The pictures link to more pics if you're interested.

This is Demi (aka "Demi Two Times" because she always meows twice in a row.) and she's a rescue from a feral colony. When we first got her you couldn't pick her up (without risking your life) and she wouldn't lay down anywhere near us. She liked to be in the same room, but not near you. 3 years later she sleeps next to us on the couch and in our bed sometimes and you can pick her up and hold her for about 20 or so seconds before you need to start fearing for your limbs.

And this is Dash (aka "Heavy D" because she's put on a little weight since this was taken.) She had a rough start. She and her sister were found as strays maybe 1 year old and pregnant weighing only 6 pounds. All her kittens were stillborn. While waiting for adoption there was a fire in her foster home. 60+ cats died in the fire (including her sister) and she was one of only 8 survivors. We adopted her 2 weeks after the fire. No injuries from the fire, she was already missing half her ear when she was found. Most lovable and friendly cat I've ever seen.

And here's a bonus pic of Dash watching the Puppy Bowl during half-time of the Super Bowl. You can see where she gets her name from on her right side.
