Laurel Ann Catt.  She runs the house.   She runs everything.  She runs *on* everything.  But we couldn't live without her.  Laurel is our 7 year old Norwegian Forest Cat.  

Odysseus was our big black cat.  He went AWOL in early February.  We hope he's with another family who loves him as much as we loved him.  We miss him more than we can say.

We also had Kaboodle.  But her friends called her Boodie.  She was kinda grouchy, but who wouldn't be at nearly 112 years old?  (In cat years, that is.)   She slept with us, and purred all the time.  Oh, and she drooled.  Boodie past away on Easter Sunday, 2001.  She lived a long good life with us, but now she's back with Mom.  The pictures of her are still here, because she still lives in our hearts.

And then there was Venus.  She was a Siberian Dwarf Hamster.  She lived in a 10-gallon aquarium, which Laurel thought was a TV just for her.  She ran on her dwarf-size wheel all night, and slept most of the day.  She left us in early August, 2002 having lived a full long dwarf hamster life of almost two years.

It's Laurel the Jungle Cat! She weighs 15 pounds. Ody loved hanging out in the sun.  Ody was a big boy, weighing in at 20 pounds.

Boodie liked to hide in the tub on occasion.  Boodie slimmed down in her old age.  She was down to just over 8 pounds. All three kitties were napping buddies on our bed.
Ody was such a dork.  He loved water! Boodie was such an old sweetie.  She kept Paul and I company while we sleep & watch TV.
Venus was so tiny! Wasn't she a little sweetie?
