Furry Friday

This picture was taken less than 2 minutes after I finished dressing for work. Most of the "kids" made a bee-line for the bed to lie on the jammies I had just taken off. Aren't they precious?

This is Shasta, after Thanksgiving dinner. She had eaten more than a few "scraps" and the tryptophan from the turkey was kicking in. What a love dog.

I think the tryptophan kicked in for brother Mike as well. Notice how Shasta is guarding him as he sleeps.

Tryptophan is gooooood stuff. Too bad it comes "packaged" with Turkey. :)

I love turkey, although I have to admit I'm getting a bit tired of it. I made a 25# bird at dad's house and then came home and made a 15#'er at home so we would have leftovers. Now HWDDD has gone for the weekend and I still have several pounds left in the fridge. I think I'll feed it to the cats tonight. That way I might actually get some sleep!

Your fur-kids are so cute. Wish I weren't allergic to cats - they're so sweet.
Shasta is precious. I'm not too good on breeds. Is she a mix or some breed I don't know?
Of course brother Mike is cute too ;0)

I do adore my fur-kids, they are awfully good company, although they are a wee bit demanding sometimes.

We were told that Shasta was a mix of Border Collie and Australian Shepherd, but I'm not convinced. She is very smart and loyal though, so it's possible.

My brother is a wonderful guy. He works 12 hour shifts, moving back and forth between days and nights, so he naps a bit. He moved in with my parents to help out when mom got sick and now that she's gone, he takes care of dad. He was always too busy taking care of everyone else to get married, which is a shame because he's extremely caring and considerate.

I have to think that there's something very positive to be said for someone who likes cats, dogs, and turkey.

Wonderful furry friends. Thanks for the pictures. :)

Cathy: I'm so sorry you are allergic. How about a hairless cat? They are kind of odd looking, but they are very affectionate and loving I am told.

Anvilcloud: Thanks :-) I really do love animals. Cats, dogs, horses, bunnies, whatever, I can hardly resist them. I would have dozens of each if HWDDD weren’t such a stick-in-the-mud. Speaking of turkey, I found out last night that my cats LOVE it. Sadly, it didn’t have the desired (tryptophan) effect and they were up half the night partying. The rest of the night they were arguing over who got to sleep closest to me.

Squirl: Thanks. I suppose I’m prejudice, but aren’t they just the cutest things?
