In introduced Moon to the new ladies,
Juliet and Jamboree, and he LOVES them! At first I put a
fence up between them because he loved them too much! I
told him, "Girls like to be romanced," but he
didn't listen. It's good to see him so interested and
happy again. We're still looking for a Toulouse mate for
him, but this distraction will work for now.
There has been too

I love this photo
of Jocamo, Oh Henry! and Ranger sleeping together...
Pancho has taken

cute! He will get within a couple feet of me and
then stop and talk to me. I think he's saying,
"Are you my Momma?" YES!

I have a tv
interview coming up with an anti-Easter pet message.
I wanted to fix up some of the bare wood that didn't
look too pretty, so I painted this mural. It's hard
to see the crowns in them, but they came out really
pretty. And there's Bella walking by!
