Not my pet, so I hope this is okay, but this cute cat keeps coming into my office at work. It lives in the pub across the road.



It waits for me at my door, shouting, then comes in when I beckon it and starts nutting me and following me. It goes with me to the other office when I make coffee, but follows me back to my own room when I leave. I think I'm the only person here who encourages it, which is why it follows me.

It fell asleep on this chair. I felt evil having to pick it up and take it outside when it was home time, but the doors get bolted and it would get locked in. I'm going to go to the pub after work to ask what its name is. Currently I'm calling it Coffee, so that I can say I'm having a Coffee break when I'm stroking it.

The parrotlet is very well concealed behind the large metal dish.

People have often asked me how big Churchill is (the dog on the left of the previous picture).

This really was the best I could do.



ETA:

And this is my beautiful Bear Boo. I wish I had space to take him. I will be so sad and I will cry when he gets adopted.

Wow, that is a BIG dog.

And re: Bear, I don't blame you. If his personality is half as sweet as his face, he's a darling. ETA: That little pink spot just above his nose is adorable.

Boogers, Hans is so cute! He looks like a robin that's had a beak job.

It took three months, every day, multiple hours a day, but inch by inch I finally closed that gap.



I still don't advise leaving them together unsupervised, however.

I think he's got more white, his feet and tummy too.

Puppy high-five!

Pete looks like our Payson, but with a white chest instead of tan. He even has the same build.

Bailey thinks we're building her a play ground of boxes.

If it's dinner time and a cat is missing, find the meowing box.

The story of that family with the mean cat (or nice cat with a mean monkey) reminded me of how wonderful my dear departed Whiskers kitty was with children. She seemed to get that they needed patience and guidance. The picture below was all her doing. I was playing on the floor with the baby and taking pictures. Whiskers laid down a few feet away and scooted on her side with her feet until she was head to head with Little_Aud.
