Haha! Do I even need to participate here? What the heck, any opportunity to share photos. LOL! If you've been here longer than a couple months, I think you've met all my critters.
From oldest to youngest:
Shaq, alias Shakky-pants. He just turned 12. He is the hardest to photograph nicely, and also the nicest of all the pets. He likes to be fed at 5:00am, and if he is not fed promptly, will cruise the house eating loose bits of fuzz until he throws up. He also has developed a new favorite game which involves teasing the other cat until a fight breaks out. Likes whipping cream and blackberry yogurt.
Bubba, alias Matchacat, or Beelzebubba . He is at least 10 years old, but probably older. We got him at the shelter about 8 years ago, right after we lost my precious Abbycat. Bubba loves people food and will beg for it relentlessly. The second you look like you might hand him a bite, he will slap your hand as hard as he can, in the hopes that you might drop the entire piece of whatever you are giving him. Especially fond of the crumbs left behind from pizza.
Sunny, alias Bucketdog (no idea why) 7-1/2. He's a sweet cocker spaniel who loves the kiddos. Given the choice between loving on a baby and eating bacon, I think his brain would smoke before he could decide. Sunny never has accidents in the house, rarely barks without reason, and waits patiently for his dinner. In other words, he's a very good dog. Except for a few weeks ago, when he peed on Murphy. Will do anything for cheese.
Murphy, 2 years old. Alias Spawn of Satan, Murphball, murphalupagus, moofy and lil' f***er. Murphy ate our kitchen floor, ate our cupboards, tore the eyes out of all of Sunny's stuffed animals, tore the stuffing out of every bed we have given them, chewed up a plastic crate, and thinks that if he needs to potty, it's perfectly okay to do it on bath towels, as long as the he pulls it down on the floor first. Murphy likes tea, and will use whatever he can as a step stool to get up to the teacup and take a taste. Also likes beer and sake.
Matcha the Budgie aka Bird. The latest edition to our menagerie. Discovered in the yard on one of the hottest days this summer, nobody claimed him, so he's still here. As far as I know, he does not like tea, but he adores nectarines.
One male human, 38 years old. Most often referred to as "honey." Likes World of Warcraft, and can occasionally be heard to utter sayings such as "JFC! The server went down right before I was going to hit level 72!" Likes tea. Will do anything for Pizza Schmizza. Has forbidden me to post his picture on the internets, but looks a little bit like this online:
