Awww, that's a pretty name for a cat. Tortie is a very shy cat too. I always know when I have visitors at my place because she will always make a beeline under the bed. She won't come back out until she feels comfortable to do so. Blue Russian cats are just so beautiful. But I love all cats, wild and tame. You are very right about the people that don't have pets, missing out on something special. They are always something very special to me....

I agee Mary, and I really do love cats too, they are all like people to me each one has their own special qualities, now I have a black cat named shylo with the most beautiful green eyes, he's very shy like his name :) and kinda babyish, my other cat was a blue russian named sassy, and again, he lived up to his name! :) I cant help thinking that people who have never had a pet are really missing something special. anyway, we are lucky to have them, you have a great day too Mary!

Hi Skip, Awww, your cocker spaniel dog sounds beautiful. My uncle used to own cocker spaniel dogs too. He loved the blue roan variety of them. They are very loyal dogs. I love their ears, so long and furry. You are quite within your rights Skip to favour dogs more over cats. I know that they understand humans more than cats do. Sometimes though, just knowing that my cats are nearby, is help enough for me. Skippy sounds like a beautiful, faithful dog. We had a show here on TV called, 'Skippy'. It was about a bush kangaroo. It was on many years ago. Yes animals can teach us alot about love. They teach us alot more about loyality and faithfulness though, but I guess that's because that love is incorporated in that too. Animals were made for us to give us meaning, happiness and companionship. Hoping you are having a great day. Please take care..... :)

Hello Poppy and Mary, it was nice to see your comments here, I never know when I open one of these up if it will be some lunatic who hates dogs, or little boys, or maybe even wool sweaters!! ;) it sounds like you both have good memories of your childhood pets, my first pet was a cocker spaniel with blonde hair and big sad brown eyes, she followed me to school each day and waited at the path to walk me home, I guess that started my love of dogs and yes I love cats too Mary, there's just something about the loyalty and the enthusiasm dogs have,my golden retriever skippy was so intelligent and sensitive I had some rough times recently and he went out of his way to care for me and make me feel better, he lived to fifteen and he was really like a family member to me so I understand how people feel about their animals, cats, dogs, horses I think they make our lives alot richer, and I even think we can learn alot about love from them.

Alot of people have said that to me about owning a pet. I guess in the future, I won't want to own pets but at the moment, they fit right into my lifestyle. I have 2 friends in America that I email and I think in the future sometime, I would like to go and meet up with them. One lives in Kentucky, and my other friend lives in Wisconsin. I also have relatives in England, Cyprus and South Africa. So having pets later on might hold me back. I'll have to wait and see what happens at that time.

I'd love to have a pet, too, but they restrict you so much... I like to leave at a moment's notice on my 'nature rambles' and other travel, and who'd look after the pet? - Luckily, some of my friends have dogs or cats I can 'borrow' once in a while...

You're always welcome, Poppy. My first encounter with pets were with cats and dogs at the same time. My parents owned the both of them. I love both dogs and cats, but cats are very special to me. I have alot of respect for them. My very first pet that I ever owned was a cat named Cuddles. She lived till she was 18. She was a tortoiseshell. She had alot of blacks and browns on her, as well as white. I also had a dog named Suzie. She was part Newfoundland, part border collie. When I separated from my ex, I had to give her away to a family that lived on a farm, so I was very pleased that at least she got placed where she would be much happier. I moved into a flat, so it's virtually impossible to keep dogs here. Cats are a different story. They fit right into here and I'm so very glad of that. They are just the best... :)

Lovely picture, Skip! There's always a special bond between between a child and a pet, especially the first one. I still remember my first pet, a Finnish Spitz, which I got when I was 6. When she had puppies, she was made a comfortable 'home' in the woodshed, and I used to sneak out of the house every night to be with her and the puppies. Many a morning, my Mum found me there, asleep, curled up around the dogs. ;-)
