Hey, were new to the site, and thought we would share some pictures and stories with you all.

First off, our names are Ariel & Tommy

And we'd like to introduce you all to...

Our beautiful love bundle of joy..
AKIRA

She will be 1 year old May 6th. Her mother was a pure bred Walker Hound, and father was a Black Lab mix. Shes very energetic, and loves to chew everything she can get her paws on. She made her way into our lives as a very unhealthy pup only being 6weeks old and infested with round worms. Her road to recovery lasted about 2 months untill she became the loving healthy pup she is today.
Here are some pictures, from first arrival home to present.

Enjoy..

Now we can introduce the newest member of our family..

TIG aka, Tiggly, Tigger, and Tony

He landed in our lives back in the summer. A neighbour had gotten into a car accident at the end of our street, also shutting down the main road with no authorities arriving on scene for quite some time. I was right behind on my way to work and directed traffic around the accident scene. We kept seeing this beautifull kitten running back and fourth across the main road almost getting hit by cars a few times. Ariel had finally grabbed him up and we were told he was a stray. He was a very calm and quiet little guy. We took him to the vet and turned out he was extremely healthy, and we couldnt dare give him up for adoption, so he joined our family, and has adapted very well to the indoors :)

Heres some pictures..

And now, we introduce our other feline family members..

Shorty & Kittie..

We had gotten Shorty off of a friend who due to alergies couldnt keep her, I have never met a cat who has SO much personality, I could write a book about her everyday movements and gestures; narrating her entire life. Now, as for Kittie, a ecountered her about a year and a half later at the local pet store, and thought to myself.. "She looks identical to Shorty", Later to find out they were actually quite different. Shorty with her slender body and dominating personality, and Kittie with her love of food, and timid personality. Nevertheless, the two are inseperable.

Below.. Shorty, talking up a storm

And now, last but certainly not least..

Our lost loved ones..

We will start off with LUCKY aka Luck & Luckydoo

Luck was a shih-poo, and past away almost 4 years ago at the age of 15. He struggled through his later years being almost fully blind and battling hip-displaysia. It really hurt seeing him in the condition he was in, and we agreed that the suffering would no longer go on. He went to sleep with his family by his side with all his favorite toys and treats, knowing well, that it was his time, and everyone loved him very much.

We miss you luck, you can chase all the cats you want where you are now buddy.


Below, the only picture we have on the computer (a year before his passing)
http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1268/4359585/19085873/304919609.jpg

And.. Lucky's best friend in the whole wide world

BOOTS aka Bootsy & Sylvester the pooty tat

The longest and fullfilling life I have ever seen a cat endure. Boots passed away weeks after Lucky had passed away, at the young age of 19. He too was almost fully blind, and by the end could not keep down most food and water. But when it came to cheese he sure did try! We watched him suffer through the last year of his life, but he suddenly went in his sleep weeks after we had all lost our luckydoo.

Most recent picture (just after Luck passed) and the only one we have on the PC
http://pic20.picturetrail.com/VOL1268/4359585/19085873/304918753.jpg
You and Luckydoo have met up again, at last, forever


And our most recent loss..

meet BUCK

We only have pictures of him as a pup, as he had gotten ahold of our digi-camera and needless to say it never worked again after that.

Buck was a Border Collie/Sheppard mix and is only 7 weeks old in the pictures.

We lost him before we could celebrate his first birthday. At 10 months old, Buck had been playing around in the backyard of the house, just like any other day. Except he had learned to leap over the fence. We seen him leap over but when I went runnin for him, he had bolted into the main street and got struck by an on-comming car. Buck had died instantly. We still have trouble to this day copeing with the tradgedy, as it has been extremely hard to overcome.

Now with a new bundle of joy, Akira, we barely let her out of our sight. We have moved since then..

He could have been a model, never to occupied or busy to strike a pose..

Miss you buddy..

MISS YOU ALL

Your pics are all lovely they made me smile laugh and cry and i'm so sorry for the loss of your cat and dogs.

I love the pic of Akira flying out of the sand and of the kitties snuggling as well as the orange tabbies face, very pretty. Shorty does look like he's full of personality. Well they all do as a matter of fact.

WElcome to the board!

Your family is sooooo wonderful, I am jealous.

Do all your cats get along and do they rule Akira :laughing: or does Akira keep them on their toes?

I think Tig was fate (hope your neighbour wasn't hurt), you were meant to be his saviour.

Sorry to hear about your losses.:grouphug:

:rip: Lucky, Bootsy, and little Buck.

Thanks you all for the lovely comments :goodvibes:

as for the cats.. they for the most part get along, Tig is very mellow and relaxed doesnt really bother anyone. He does get very excited at night, doing what most kitties do, playing with whatever he can get his claws on, climbing posts, jumping, pouncing, twirling :D

Shorty and Kittie however do not get along with Akira.. they used to bully her around as a pup, but now that shes grown so much she isnt afraid to pounce when the uncalled for hissing begins. But Tig, has become Akira's kittie, shes still working on rough play, not realizing that tig is still a kitty and considerably fragile compared to her doggy playmates..

**hay_lynda**
