Can't help myself! One of these pics is our kitten destroying the Christmas tree, otherwise these would be some wild animals we love both here and abroad. The tiny creature out on the lake is an otter. Love watching him slide on his belly across the snow!ImageUploadedByEarly Retirement Forum1391697578.143214.jpgImageUploadedByEarly Retirement Forum1391697621.989968.jpgImageUploadedByEarly Retirement Forum1391697682.963417.jpgImageUploadedByEarly Retirement Forum1391697744.686815.jpgImageUploadedByEarly Retirement Forum1391697892.931732.jpgImageUploadedByEarly Retirement Forum1391697999.772734.jpg

dontworry, these are great! And make me feel better about sharing our place with 5 dogs and 5 cats! We've been holding off replacing the sheep, but I do miss ours. Used to have horses, too. Love all the orange cats in the mix!

Thanks! I am a huge animal lover! We have goats (4 pets only) too! . We only have 2 dogs right now and I am feeling myself being drawn to adopting again. DH doesn't think that's such a good idea though . Guess we will see!

If I could figure out how to attach photos you would see doggie Frankie, cats Riley and Rose. And a pic of my sweet dog Maggie who died last month. Would never live without dear animal family.

linny727 - when posting a comment, click on "Go Advanced", then click on the paperclip icon to select an image file to upload - and there you have it!

If you have your pictures hosted on a separate site, you can also include the url to the .jpg file in your post.

Just passing forward the knowledge that was passed to me when I was also wondering how to post photos here.

Looking forward to seeing your beloved pet menagerie!

Oh don't worry, he later continued to find great enjoyment in batting all the ornaments off the tree. Then one day I had to rescue him because he had his leg caught in one of the strings of lights. I had to actually cut the cord. Gotta love 'em!

The investing knowledge on this site is quite useful but like everything else on the internet, it's value pales in comparison to the real purpose of these forums - an online repository of cat pictures for us all to enjoy

I've already posted a few pictures of my youngest, so apologies if I'm flooding the forum with pictures. I haven't posted this one before though. This is Sprout when she was 5 months old (she's 21 months now).

The little Maltese mix, Bentley, is my newest guy ( about a month ) from the pound. He's about 6 or so they think, getting along with my Chihuahua mix, Kiki about 2, from the same pound.

Mingus is the neighborhood cat. He has a home, but spends much of his day in the 1-block radius around his home greeting passers-by with a very loud meow. He has just about the loudest meow I have ever heard from a cat. He is very enthusiastic about meowing at people, and can be heard from a block or two away. It is quite hilarious! I am honored to be acquainted with such a fantastic personality.
