she used to play leap frog and get a running start from down the hall.

Do you have any fun pet stories you’d care to share?

    My pet story:
    So, one day most of us were in our watching TV and we started to smell the familiar smell of a skunk. The smell started getting stronger and stronger, so my dad decided to take a look outside. He figured that Buster, the dog, probably had a run-in with a skunk and had come near the house to get away from the smell. Well, when he looked outside, he saw Buster wiping his nose on the ground in the garden. “Oh, great!”, he thought. Out of the corner of his eye he saw Scully, the cat, and knew he didn’t want her to get near Buster and start to smell too. So he let her in. The expression on the faces of the rest of the family must have been priceless. Scully’s face was just dripping with skunk spray. She was blinded and scared so she began running around the whole house bumping into chairs, walls, and everything else in her way. Eventually we caught her because she was hiding under a bed and the smell pretty much gave away her position. Luckily, mom had bought some deodorizer a short time before which completely took care of the smell all over the house and on Scully, who has since fully recovered.

    Cute cat. I love the one of her perched on your shoulder in the car. Makes me want a kitten.

    Awww that so sweet! And of course what a super cute Ginger kitty. It reminds me of one of my favorite pictures of one of my cats, Alex sitting on my shoulder. We have 2 black and white cats we adore them and most of the time the are well behaved. But being two boys they fight a little more then I like.

  7. Yay! I am already in love! I love all the pics too – with the guitar, and the soda, and spread eagle all crazy-like there at the end!!!! ha ha! Love it!
