Happy All American Pet Photo Day! Every July 11th pet owners here in the United States have another reason to post lots of pictures of our adorable pets on social media (as if we didn’t do that every day already.)
I’ll admit I probably have way too many pets, a dog and five cats...yes five...but I love them all!
Of the over 8700 photos on my iPhone, I’d say at least half are pictures of my fur babies.
This is Luna, she's an Australian Shepherd/Border Collie Mystery Mix and she's 7 years old.
Over the years we've acquired several cats, thanks in part to the colony of feral cats that lives behind my house. Last fall this little girl started showing up on my back porch so I began feeding her. The day before the blizzard in January I was able to get her in the house and now she's a permanent part of the family! This is Princess Buttercup!
Chloe is the first stray we invited in from the backyard, in fact she pretty much adopted us by meowing at the door to be let in. She may be mischievous, but she's loveable! Beware...she likes to ride on your shoulders!
Orion came to us via the backyard in January of 2018. She was hiding under the porch the day before another massive snowstorm. For hours we unsuccessfully tried to get her to voluntarily get into a cat carrier but she kept retreating under the deck. I set a live animal trap and caught her just as the snow began to pile up. We brought her inside, let her out of the trap and fed her. She then proceeded to climb into my lap and fall asleep. She's the sweetest!
I adopted Mickey 12 years ago from the Angelcat Haven Feline Rescue in Plainville, MA, and he's a super snuggly tuxedo! He can also be a bit of a troublemaker, and it's probably my fault because I've spoiled him rotten!
And last but not least is 13 year old Minnie! She was born in a barn a few streets over from my house. We adopted her for my son when he turned 10 and the two have been inseparable ever since! She's all black except for a tiny white patch on one toe!
Show us pictures of your pets! We'd love to see them!!
