Meet The Girls!

Happy Show and Tell Friday! My thanks to Cindy @ My Romantic Home for hosting Show and Tell Friday.

This week I would like to share some special members of my household. I don't remember when it started, but I have always loved animals. Perhaps it has something to do with all the time spent on my Grandpa's farm. There were always kittens, chickens, horses, dogs, and of course cows. Have you ever ridden bareback on a cow? I don't recommend it, they're very bony!

And now for the introductions:

First is Abby, the Abyssinian. (Please don't tell her she's not a purebred because she's got the attitude!) Abby is the eldest at eight years. Abby is very smart, clever and tiny. The eternal kitten.Next is Frederica Jane. She is the shy girl, always hiding when we have guests. She is also our most valuable kitty. We found out she is a snow marbled bengal. I love her blue eyes and her fur feels like a bunny! Frederica loves to eat.
And then there's Jasmine, or Jazzy. She's the youngest and is quite full of it. I have always loved black kitties. She acts more like a dog. Did I mention she is HUGE? She can even stand on her back feet and walk a few steps. Maybe she'll be famous one day on You Tube. Jazz is best friends with...

Sophie, our miniature dachshund. Sophie is a pretty girl, her coloring is officially called "sable". She's my best friend. She adores me and follows me everywhere. Her favorite things are taking a walk through the neighborhood and playing with her BFF, Jazz.

Each of our kitties were adopted from the Humane Society. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND adopting there, we have always gotten THE BEST kitties from them! Thank you for letting me share the "other" members of my family!

You forgot to mention the girls' favorite activity: tromping down the hallway at one in the morning. ;)

Or Abby's secret modeling career, or the reindeer games...

I <3 our girls!

Love from your daughter Rachel :)

Jazzy looks just like my daughters cat Mandy. Mandy died this yr. she was a wedding gift from her husband. They had Mandy for 16 yrs. The family, went on vacation and three days after they came home, Mandy's heart just gave out. She died at home, surrounded by her loving family. My Granddaughter wrapped her in a princess pillowcase, they had alovely red box, my granddaughter wrote her a special letter, my grandson wrote her a special letter, I brought over the rose petals from my garden. They placed rose petals inside the red box, on the outside, and on top of the dirt after she was buried. Sorry this was so long, but Jazzy brought back those special memories of summer 2010

Just dropped by your blog. Very nice photos of your pets. I, too, am a big cat lover and have made a business from my love of the feline. DDeb (Ottawa, Canada)

Very good looking animal family. Each one looks like a character. Sophie must have such fun with all those kitties to play with or harass. I hope she holds her own with them.

Abbie , Jasmine and Sophie, I know I left out one. Are all adorable. I won't tell Abbie she is not a pure bred. Let her keep her attitude.

Very sweet kitties. I think Frederica Jane is one of the most handsome cats I have ever seen. She's beautiful!

Rosie@Journey to Charm said...

Aww, your kitties and doggie are so precious! That's great that one of them buddies up with your pup.

Sue said...

Jasmine is a Bombay which are totally black cats with gold eyes, and are extremely beautiful because of their very short, shiny fur. They're very intelligent & affectionate. All your 'babies' are gorgeous!

Hi Victoria! So nice to see you back in blogland. I haven't been a constant blogger myself, but always love to read what my old blogging buds have to say. You have a beautiful family - each and every one! And I love your porch. Certainly looks like a nice place to relax. Enjoy the rest of the weekend!!
