Did anybody else see the film, on the Today show this morning, of the rat running up some guy's body in the New York City subway?  :P

Next time I'm in New York, I think I'll take a cab. ...  8)

This is so cute! :D  Especially the close-up.
They get tame enough to jump on your lap? Be careful though that you don't get scratched or bitten.
Aren't you a little worried for your cat?

Chrissi, Oreo never goes outside so he and the raccoons don't ever meet face to face. :)

Fran, I'll be careful! Promise!

Lee, I enjoyed reading your raccoon stories! lol

Chuck, I love your kitty headlight pictures!

It's been a while since I posted pics of Blaze here, so I tried to take some shots with my Blackberry.

The flash really did a number on his eyes!

Great pics and great stories!

Ember...she's my sweetie!!!

Y'all watch them raccoons.  And watch 'em close.  They can carry rabies.  :-\

Blaze cat with his eyes so bright, he'll guide Chuckie's way tonight... :laugh:

You should use him for a flashlight Chuck! At least you'll never trip over him when you get out of bed. Don't we wish our kitteh's eyes shined like that all the time, huh? 8)

There's a new whippet at our house!

I am thrilled to announce the arrival of

Ember


She's four-and-a-half months old and a real sweetheart.  I'm in heaven!

Happy First Ember Anniversary!
