Hello! I am a very active volunteer at my local SPCA and animal league here in San Antonio, and it kills me that I just can't bring all of them home with me and love and care for them like they deserve. I hope we can work together to save many animals and in some cases, the people that receive them are saved also, I know, I was one of them..but more on that later..anyhow I look forward to working with you all thanks for having me

I'm Di and and I see a few friends Waya, Lavinia and Tony W.
I have three green parrots and I love them to bits. I love all animals and have been known to adopt them at the drop of a hat. I once took on a lovely black cat and her four kittens. We usally have cats. My fav cat is Billy otherwise known as Billy Bunter (From the book not that he's anything like B.
I once popped into the butcher to help out a stray cat and then stood over her making sure no one chased her away from her prize or that anyone else. People were staring but me I just stood there like a bouncer. Hee hee
My parrots are Honey, Sugar and Spice (aka spencer) whose Photo I'l post later
I'm Tina...I'm new here, and I see some familiar faces!
Animals are a passion of mine. I can't imagine life without them...but thank God, I don't have to!
We rescued a beauty of a Husky/Malamute/Akita mix through Care2 ("Wolf Mountain Sanctuary" Group). However, she doesn't "play nice" with other dogs, but she Loves Kitties...
(So we've been discussing getting a cat )!
She's so wonderful. I work from home and we "hang out" all day. She's about 6 years old and has been shuffled around. She & I are very close.
I had a beautiful German Sheperd-Norwegian Elkhound mix, years ago. "Sheeba" will live forever in my heart. Also, I worked with Police k9's for about a year.
A bit about what I do in Care2...I always write in 3pt. and bold, for those who are sight-impaired.
I have a group called "BREAST IMPLANTS...for better or worse?” It addresses the effects of Silicone in the Human body. A lot of Women don't realize that even if they have Saline implants, the envelope (or bag) that holds that liquid is...Silicone!
Also, I work with a wonderful company that provides the best foods, treats and safe products for Dogs, Cats and Horses!
And they don't "test" on Animals!!!
And the reason that I'm awake at this hour, is because I'm amped from "Excedrin"!
thank you for the invite September 13, 2005 9:17 AM

Please "try" not to think of the whens it will happen because to do that you are putting a wall around a portion of your love(humans do that to protect theselves from hurt) and you fur baby can more than likely feel it. When you get to to thinking that remind yourself that your fur baby can feel your emotion change and you want your baby to feel all of you not a portion of you. I know it is hard I have a 16 year old who has lost all her teeth except 5 and she is in the process now of loosing her last canine and the thought does cross my mind sometimes and my cat always knows it when it does because she will even wake up from a dead sleep to come and sit on my lap. So for your fur baby even though it is hard try not to think of the whens but think of the now and make the most of your time make today like it is the first day you ever laid eyes on her.... to the group every one

Hi everyone, thank you to Silverwolf for the invite
I'm Tricia, and live with my mom while going to college to become a veterinary technician. At first I though about being a nurse in human medicine, but animals are MUCH more my thing.
We have a 14 yr old Siamese named Lilac Ann. She has a fairly serious case of feline asthma and chronic renal failure. In other words, near the end. Sometimes it makes me cry to see her like this, and it makes me wonder if giving her injections and pills everyday to keep her comfortable is really for me because I dont want to let her go. And having access to a vet library and knowing the medical aspects doesn't make it any easier, I've turned into a hypochondriac over Lilac Ann. People say that you'll know when the time is right to consider helping her cross the bridge, but it weights very heavily on me.
Well that was nice to let that out somewhere. Best wishes to all the furbabies here, and love them as much as you can!
That's OK Roxanne, Silverwolf and I are pardners so when you thank one of us you are thanking the other..Lots of folks call me Runningwolf and her Silverfox at least you got that right.. No need for you to apologize..Silverwolf and I are glad you and the other folks we have on our groups are here with us..
I am so happy to be invited to this group! I share my home with my daughter, Ashley, Great Pyrenees, Bearenger, Chow mix, Anoke, and five rescued cats: Sheeba (our 16 year old Siamese mix queen,) Elizabeth (also thinks she is queen, probably because she has one amber eye and one blue one...), Coco (my special baby that I bottle fed from about 4 days old!), Flash (who showed up on the 4th of July in a flash amidst crazy fireworks everywhere and started scarfing on beenie weenies) and DeDe (sp?) rescued by my son while I was in Northern California trying to explain by phone that 4 cats and 2 dogs living in the house was ENOUGH. Oh well... what's one more? And we love them all very much! I also work with birds of prey, Socrates being my special owl, but they do not live with me.
Hello, I am new here. I have one dog, Zoey a border collie mix, 2 cats xena and dinah. As of yesterday my mom's pug has joined us. He will be staying here indefinately. He's not one of my favorite creatures, but he is a creature non the less. Jacko the pug is a bit stubborn and used to bossing my mom around. He thinks he can do this with me. ha.

My name is Forrest. Just want to say hi and introduce our family. On the human side there is myself and my wife Toni of almost 33 years. We have three duaghters of which the youngest is 22 and just received her B.A. in Biology. The middle daughter is married and is living in California. The oldest daughter came to visit us here in Walla Walla a couple of years ago and hasn't wanted to leave. This town kind of grows on you.
On the Pet side we have a total of 13 - there are two male labs - Zachari (a yellow lab of 7 years) and Sam Wise (a choclate lab of 9 1/2 months). We are also caring for our oldest daughters dog - Lilly who is a mix of some sort, Then there are the two female Boston Terriers ( Pygmy and Piglet). On the feline side we have an Orange Manx named Weslie and a White cat named Dyna, both of these are outside cats. Then on the inside there is a female Torta colored named Mauggot, a Calico colored named Alice and a recent edition, whom my wife found playing in the middle of a busy street at dusk, is a little black male named Eliot who was named and claimed by out youngest daughter. She named him after, T. S. Eliot. Then to round out the managerie there is Chico the Cockatiel and Walter the Lovebird. Oh, and last but not least is the Purplish/Blue colored Betta named - ????? Fish.
P.S. - We were unable to find the owners of Eliot so I guess he will have to grow up at our place.
I'm Melissa and I've got a Collie named Zen and two cats, Leo and my granddaughter's cat, KiKi. Leo and KiKi are brothers but, you would never believe it because they look so different from each other. I'll post pictures later...G'night everyone. See ya tomorrow!
Howdy all, well I have 2 budgies, a blue one and a green one (the blue one is female and the green one is male), and 2 cavies; Shadow and Romeo ( I have pics of the cavies, past and present, in my photo albumn). We had a neighborhood cat kind of adopt us last year, but our neighbor moved and he went with her (he was over at our apt almost as much as at hers ). It was the first time I ever saw a cat "pick up its food using the claws in one foot, like a human picking up food with their fingers".
hello Ann and Rebecca for joining.....Ann it would be easier if you could post a pic of your new fur baby to look at her would be easier to match her with a name and also if you could tell us a little more about her personality...... again thanks for joining
Thanks for the invite. You know I love all my babies and this is a cool place to brag about them. I also love the idea of posting pets that need homes. Way to go.......
For anyone that doesn't know me, I'm Rebecca and I live in West Central Florida. I'm a single Mom of a beautiful 10 years old daughter (Missy) and I'm the Mom of 3 crazy cats, my boys are 3 years old (Sage & Cinnamon) and my loveable little girl is 2 years old (Diamond)
Hello everyone! I am Ann (some know me as Mother Angel) and I have just been "chosen" by a stray that has been around the apartments for the past 4 months. She is siamese and since Monday won't go near anyone but me. I guess I had the right kind of CANNED food! Being a dog person all my life this is taking time getting used to. She is quirky and stubborn but mostly loving and trusting. She sleeps with me curled around my legs. I haven't named her yet, so~~~~ANYONE have ANY ideas at ALL?? She is a sweetie pie.
Blessings! and thanks for the invitation to this great group. It will really explode I believe!!
Hello everyone, My name is SilverWolf I am a mom of 2 daughters ages 13 and 14. I am also owned by to 4 cats named Lucky, Sasha, Lilly, and Ebony. I also owned by 2 turtles names are Spaz and Frances......
