I posted these over on Dev's blog, but thought I would put them here too.

I have a friend visiting from America, who I met online playing poker.

Here is a couple of little one minute videos I have taken recently.

The first one is with our pet blue tongue lizards taken the other day......and just a side note to that, I went down in the garage this morning where they live in a huge tank, and found a baby blue tongue, but unfortunately it was dead. I rang my son, who is the original owner, and he told me that last time the female gave birth, she had seven over a couple of days, so now we are waiting to see if we get any more.

Anyway here is the vid of my friend holding the one of the blue tongues.

The second vid, was taken the other day, when we went to a little animal sanctuary down the road from our place.



cute vids!!

To you dog lovers!   


   IF I DIDN'T HAVE A DOG..........

I could walk around the yard barefoot and in safety.

My house could be carpeted instead of tiled and laminated.

All flat surfaces, clothing, furniture, and cars would be free of hair.   

When the doorbell rang, it wouldn't sound like a kennel and I could get to the door without wading through fuzzy bodies who beat me there.

I could sit on the couch and my bed the way I wanted, without taking into consideration how much space several fur bodies would need to get comfortable.

I would have money. . . .  and no guilt to go on a real vacation.
 
I would not be on a first-name basis with 6 veterinarians, as I put their yet unborn grandkids through college. 

The most used words in my vocabulary would not be: out, sit, down, come, no, stay, and leave him/her/it alone.

My house would not be cordoned off into zones with baby gates or barriers.

My house would not look like a day care center, toys everywhere.

My pockets would not contain things like poop bags, treats and an extra leash.

I would no longer have to spell the words  B-A-L-L,  F-R-I-S-B-E-E,  W-A-L-K,  T-R-E-A-T,  B-I-K-E,  G-O, and R-I-D-E

I would not have as many leaves inside my house as outside.

I would not look strangely at people who think having one dog/cat ties them down too much.

I'd look forward to spring and the rainy season instead of dreading 'mud' season. 

I would not have to answer the question 'Why do you have so many animals?' from people who will never have the joy in their lives of knowing they are loved unconditionally by someone as close to an angel as they will ever get.

How empty my life would be!


This is a witness to my life! LOL.

Very nice, Katie77! :)

From Walt Whitman:

I think I could turn and live with animals, they are so placid and self-contain'd,
I stand and look at them long and long.

They do not sweat and whine about their condition,
They do not lie awake in the dark and weep for their sins,
They do not make me sick discussing their duty to God,
Not one is dissatisfied, not one is demented with the mania of owning things,
Not one kneels to another, nor to his kind that lived thousands of years ago,
Not one is respectable or unhappy over the whole earth.



(Interesting, I thought.)

I have a cute cat, I'm told she is yellow in color, part Purrsian, named Malenkaya, which is Russian for "little cat." Of course she is not really little LOL but she's my baby and I love her. She is shy around strangers, always hides under the bed when they come. She will only come out with me, and sometimes for my aide Jeanie, but that's not for very long. She also HATES the outdoors, she will cling to the door frame if you try to take her out, and then she will reach over and slam the door shut (no joke LOL). She can't stand my stepfather, will bite and hiss and try to scratch him with her declawed front paws, it's rather funny to see.

Here's some videos of her...
playing with her favorite toy


just me showing her


Sorry that I don't have any sound on these.

Malenkaya is very beautiful, Anya Angie. Her fur looks nice and thick.

Thanks for the welcome and the comments, guys. It's been a while but I assure you I've never really left you. It's great to be back.

Malenkaya snuggled with me last night keeping me warm on the coldest night of the year, just purring away with her paws around my arm LOL. She's funny and sweet like that.

I'm glad you have a kittie to keep you warm Anya.

I've always thought people that don't like cats simply haven't known them.

I have the day off tomorrow, so am I doing something cool tonight?

No.

I have one of those shelves that attach to the window, for the cat to sit on.  I've removed the cover, and washing it, so Blaze has a clean bed.


I lead such an exciting life.
