I realized today that I haven't blogged about two of the most important members of my family - my dog, Ginger and my cat, Annabelle.
My family adopted them just about four years ago. The cat we'd had while I was growing up, Vixey, had just passed away. I was heartbroken but my parents knew it was time to open our hearts and our home to not only another cat but also a dog, the first one I had ever had.
After weeks of searching, my parents found Ginger at a local rescue center, Hope for Life. At a year and a half she had already had a litter of puppies and a bad case of heart worm. What she really needed was a warm and loving home. Which is just what we gave her. (I'll talk more about Ginger later)
While going out every weekend to visit Miss Ginger, I fell in love with a little kitten at the Hope for Life Center. A few weeks later I brought home my little Smelly Belly.
Annabelle is a sassy cat. She's got attitude and doesn't take any crap from anyone - not even Ginger (even though the dog is three times her size). She's funny and quirky and I love her. I always have the feeling that if she could talk she'd curse like a sailor and have a thick Brooklyn accent.
I'm not really jealous of her lifestyle (sleeping 20 hours a day is even too much for me), but I am pretty jealous of just how peaceful she is when she naps.
Check out these pictures I got of her over the weekend while she conked out on my bed for a few hours:
I wish I could nap like that!
That's right...she's sticking her tongue out.
Stretch it out.....
How cute is that?!?
Uh, oh...I think I woke her up!
Nap's over! She's probably cursing me out right now. It was worth it to share just how cute she is to all of cyber space!
