Some really good news folks: The prodigal cat, Seth, has returned.

A couple of weeks ago Seth the cat was missing and California Girl asked for our thoughts, prayers and well wishes for Seth's return. He has returned.

The prodigal cat has returned! Seth found his way back home, and I'm extremely thankful to everyone for their prayers, well wishes, and thoughtful advice. Here's a photo of my rascally marmalade cat. I got him from the shelter when he was just a wee kitty. So glad he's going to be around a while longer. -California Girl

Hello again Pet Morons Thread!

On 27 May last I sent you a pic of our GSD pup Max.

Just to give you an update. Max is growing and loves his Big Sister Nena (after the German singer - 99 Balloons).

Just to share with you how crazy about Nena he is.

Happy New Year to all our Pet Lovers!

Ivan

What an adorable photo. Looks like someone has a couple of nice puppies!! Thanks for submitting the photo Ivan.

Storm 17 HVY (1).jpg

Stormy's portrait at 1 year attached.

This tiny, month-old female bobtail calico kitten showed up (courtesy of cat lady neighbor Cyndi) at our house in December 2017. Cyndi adopted out 8 others as well. Yeah, formula feedings and all.

Always game for anything, good natured and full of life, Stormy was always on the puny side...until this fall. She found the chow hall, and probably the cat buffet at Cyndi's house too.

As we began to notice Stormy's increased girth, and the octave lower "thump' when she jumps up on the pet counter in the workshop, she acquired a new callsign...
"Storm 17 - Heavy" - with the secondary caveat - "Caution Wake Turbulence".

If you know any aviation dope - you get it.
Great thread. Great Blog. BZ!
SundogJax

I don't know much about aviation, but I'm guessing Caution Wake Turbulence is a nice way of saying she has a fat butt. Cute cat. Thanks for the story!

ShermanBD.jpg

Long time reader seldom comment (I'm at @robpublican but hardly use it much anymore). This is my beautiful dog Sherman. We got him in 2015 and through thick and thin - and a lot of thin these past few years with several miscarriages - he has been an utter blessing from God. He has been a lovely dog and despite his 105lbs (+/- 5 lbs depending) he is nothing but a sweet and gentle giant.

He truly is a gift. He was in the shelter for 5-6 weeks before we found him We think so many passed because he was so big (and strong - was named tank by the shelter). The one and only time my career choice (military historian) paid off was when my wife asked me for any good names for tanks and Sherman was the first that came to mind. He is everything anyone thinks of when you say gentle giant. Great with kids, great with strangers, and always looking to meet a new person (by which he means "Welcome, you may now scratch my behind"). His only dislikes are water (Rain is a sign God is disappointed in him) and as evidenced in the photos he's not a fan of hats; even while trying to celebrate his birthday,

I would love to take credit for any of his good qualities, but he came to us like that. We think/suspect he was in a great home but just ran away because he was so muscular and got loose. We think that because he is so sweet and well mannered. Even down to the fact he hardly ever barks (!) which is a lovely feature in a dog if you ever wondered! The only downside, as we saw the first night we got him, is that when you expect him to bark to go out to pee well...he doesn't. We've learned to interpret body language and he's a happier boy for it.

He loves couches and squeeker toys and thinks squirrels and little lizards were placed on earth for him to chase. Sadly he also loved the snow but we now have moved down south.

I know that I, like so many others, love our dogs like family and we want to love them to the best of our ability as long as we can. I've taken to praying for him daily as he is such a gift from the Lord, especially in our trying times of late, and thought I might share what I took from, I believe, the book of common prayer. Other morons might want to incorporate it into their own daily devotions.

"O God, every animal, in every forest, field, and home belongs to you and is under your loving care. May your blessing be upon [name] and in your steadfast kindness keep him/her safe from all harm. Heal him from any illness and bless him with a rich and long life. I pray that you would show your eternal love and mercy in the companionship and friendship that he provides"

Best,
@Robpublican


Hey Robpublican, thanks for submitting Sherman's photo and story. I love the facial expression on the big guy. It certainly sounds like he is a very fortunate dog and the same can be said for his family.

These are my pet morons.

Lucy the Lab is my Craigslist find. Apparently she was owned by a sportsman who bred her multiple times and then was through with her. Their loss is my win! Shes the most gentle, docile girl youd ever want to meet. I got her when she was 4 (ish) two years ago.

Bitsy Ive had since she was a pup. I found her under a trailer at the sellers farm. She was advertised as an American Bulldog but Im sure the GSD I saw on the property is the dad. - August

I would agree with you that Bitsy has some mixed heritage :) Lucy looks like a sweetheart. It appears you have a great household.

Misanthropic Humanitarian,

Been following AOS for years and will find me on the morning threads most weekdays. Love all the work and thought provoking posts the Cobs put together. Well done!


Been 2 years since we shared a picture of the fur babies in house OCiS. In that time, we lost our Russian Blue mix cat and gained a tiger/calico mix kitten. Our poor dog Fenway, a flat coat retriever mix, is still warming up to the new addition. The kitten is much friendlier towards the dog than our last cat which the dog still is having flashbacks from. Houdini (cat) is pictured here in one of her calmer moments looking for a warm place to take a nap -much to the chagrin of the dog.


The second picture is Houdini discovering the Christmas Tree and ornaments. Not knowing what this bundle of energy would do with Christmas decorations, we left our nice decorations boxed up and hung only shatter proof ones. Wise move as you can see from this picture. - ourcountryisscrewed


OCis, thanks for the compliments. Greatly appreciated. Wonderful photos. Looks like your kitteh had a fun Christmas.
