This is Thumper. Half Poodle and half Lhasa Apsos. We adopted him from a good friend of Jacob, our youngest son. He is about 7 years old. We love him dearly. We never really had a small dog inside the house until we got him. His owner that raised him actually passed away and we were asked to take him. At first we were not too sure we wanted the responsibility because we both work and we didn't know if we would be able to give him much attention. We are so glad we decided to take him. We work all day, but we give him plenty of attention when we do get home. He loves to play ball and go for adventures in our back yard that is fenced in. At his old house he could not go out at all. I think he likes his new life on the farm. He is a big part of our family now that's for sure.

My Oreo Buddy. My Jacob Cat. My youngest son Jacob, now 21, brought me this wonderful cat about 2 years ago for Christmas. He had volunteered at the local animal shelter and fell in love with this one. I'm so glad he did. He is the only male cat we have. He is a wonderful, loving cat. He wants to lay in your lap and be rubbed alot. He mostly sleeps with my husband. They're big buddies.
My Gracie Poo. Gracie was found by my husband eating at a dumpster. She looked so pitiful and dirty when he brought her home. I took her to the vet and got her wormed and she started looking better each day. She gained weight and today is a beautiful cat. She only has a little stump for a tail. She is part Manx. She has the most beautiful fur and color. She is very attached to me and usually only has anything to do with me and no one else. In a way I think she adopted me instead of the other way around. She loves to sleep with me.
This is my Kemo Baby. I found her outside the grocery store where I work. Someone had abandoned her. I brought her home and I'm so glad I did. She can be a very temperamental cat, but at the same time she is so loving. She only wants to be held when she wants to. She is not the kind of cat to be picked up and held. She has to come to you when she wants to. She is solid black long haired with golden eyes. She is so beautiful.
This is Emma Lou. She just wondered up to our back door one day. We thought she was the neighbors and tryed to return her. She didn't belong there so we feel like she was meant to be ours. Needless to say she stayed. She is a very timid and shy cat. Emma is the perfect lap cat. She is so cute. That's the only way to describe her. She got her name because of her green eyes. Emerald green.
This is Mollie. She is the oldest of all my cats. She is a beautiful calico. She's very timid and does not like to be with my other cats. Although she loves to rubbed and loved by everyone else. She was given to me by my brother and we have loved her every day since then.
