I'm very happy to be a part of this board! My kids are:
Cougar Lhynne who is a 12 year old female tortishell siamese mix,
Alexandria is a 13 year old female black siamese mix,
Orion Ra is a 6 month old male himalayan mix.
Ren is an 11 year old male english rat terrier.
Phylisis and Knossos are 8 month old female fancy mice.
Jim, Jimi and Janis are 6 month old firebelly toads.
Charlotte is a 3 month old female red jumping spider and 2 fancy guppies and a dragonfish.

Alexandria was rescued from an animal shelter when she was almost a year old by my sister. She had an affinity for human food and was caught eating my father's sandwich and he threw her outside! The result of that was Cougar who definitely lives up to her name and is a wild one. Orion and Ren were rescued from a house owned my meth-addicts where 6 other cats lived inside and approximately 20 lived outside. Cat Feces, urine and vomit covered the surfaces in the house. Both Ren and Orion were extremely malnourished. Ren was 6 pounds over his average 10 pound weight caused by a steady diet of wet cat food. Orion was underweight from a steady diet of adult wet cat food which does not have enough nutrients to sustain kittens. Orion is brain damaged from the Meth. The mice, toads and fish came from Petsmart and Charlotte was saved from the death penalty ordered by my mother, she will be released to back to the wild next week.

Welcome to the board! Sounds like you have a great rescue operation going on there. Kudos to you and your family for rescuing so many furries (and not-so-furries). :highfive:
