Yes, Jack is the kitten. He has provided plenty of photo ops, but I have to grab the camera fast, as he doesn't stay still very long.

hiker88 - great picture! And, nice to see the older residents are at least tolerating the little one...

There was plenty of hissing and growling at first, but after a couple weeks they became good friends.

Looks like a barfly in training.

That is a truly great picture hiker. No one but those who have multi car households know how hard it is to take pics of all of them at the same time, let alone a rowdy kitten. But that is really awesome in every way.

What is your Corgi's name?

Does he like food? You don't have to answer this one.
Our Corgi's name is "Champ." He's our third Corgi. Our first was also a tricolor named "Ray", and the second was a red and white named "Buddha Belly." Yep, Champ likes food. He gets a number of toys, with treats in them, throughout the day but, we work hard at keeping him lean; as you know, Corgis can get pudgy if the owner's not careful. He's a great little guy.

Thanks Sarah. We are fortunate that all four cats (Crystal was not in the photo) get along very well and often hang out together.

hiker, that is so rare to find--it seems mine will pair up on occasion, but all five together? Never happening. Probably because they are all girls now. My old male orange tabby was the peacemaker. Your vet should want a framed copy of that for their office! It is really striking.

Huston, Corgi's must be the only herders that will actually get pudgy. The Borders are like the teenage girls of the dog kingdom, such picky eaters and always full of nervous energy.

Sweet looking dogs. Sorry for your loss of the older girl. Lovely shot of them.

And here I thought only Corgis did this. Nice pic.

Here's a better angle of our flexi-cat. His name was Nacho - long gone. The pic is from the early 1990's. Crazy the way he used to sit.

There may be a "Barktoberfest" near you (not a joke). I'm going tomorrow. Check it out, it'll make you smile.

A picture I just took this morning of my ragdoll. His official name is Sasha, but not surprisingly, we usually just call him Fluffy:

Cute ragdoll! And very fluffy! I always think it is funny about cats posing for pictures. The mystery writer Lilian Jackson Braun in her Cat Who series talked about the sleuthing Siamese as being totally unwilling to have their photographs taken. Many of mine have been of the same ilk--if they knew we pulled the camera out, they immediately quit doing whatever cute things they were doing!
