The 4 "Muttkateers" and Trouble

I don't know if the 4 Muttkateers are "trouble," but they sure are adorable. They are Jennifer's (jdt) kids, and this photo could win a contest! A reporter at the Leaf, Stacey, has 4 Poms and an Italian greyhould. I'll have to make sure she sees this one. This would make the perfect Christmas card! They are posing so perfectly!

The cat, Trouble, is Alice's (I hope I got that right, as your email didn't include your name. I know you talked about Trouble and Scooter,right? Or am I mixed up? It's been known to happen!I quickly tried to look at past posts to verify, but I'm running out of time and got to get ready to roll). Let me know if I mismatched poster and pet! I see how the cat got his name, but I am sure he was just trying to help out with a paper jam! Our pets do like to help us with our work. Peanut loves kitchen duty and helping Mommy clean the floor. Now if only I could get him to clean up the yard! I love the expression on Trouble's face, as if he's saying, "What? It's these dang machines, not me causing trouble!"

How on earth did you get those four poms to pose like that?? My best friend growing up had poms, and not one of hers would have ever sat still that long, let alone FOUR at one time!!! They sure are cute--except for the clothes. GEEEEZZ!!!!

I see someone has a cat like mine. She was gracious enough to name hers Trouble. My hubby dubbed mine S**thead. Seriously.

Yes, that is my Trouble. I realized I had forgotten to sign my name just after I hit send. Sorry!!

I found her crying in the back yard just a week after I had to have my 18-year-old cat Baby Girl put to sleep. Baby Girl had developed a large cancerous tumor in her throat and it was preventing her from breathing. So, we took to her the vet and let her go. Then a week later, I found Trouble. She helped me get over the loss of mt precious Baby Girl who had been there for me when my parents died and I, myself, had medical problems. She was 12 when I married my hubby... I told him that if I ever had to decide between him and Baby Girl, he would lose because I had known her longer. But he grew to love her as much as I did. Our babies give us so much and really ask for so little in return. Thanks for posting the printer picture!

That photo of the dogs and the kitty are so adorable!

Alice that is how my girls have helped me since we had to put our sweet Smantha to sleep when she was 15. It tore us up and we still grieve. I say we because as much as Jon complains he does love the girls.We used to have a cat named Tiger that was our sweet boy and had to put him to sleep at only 6 years old. He had a severe reaction to insulin the first time he got it. He was paralized and went into a coma. That was when my husband was in Iraq back the first time they went in 1991. We still grieve for him too. Anyway he was a striped tabbly that was part Lynx and was a big boy.

And Stacey- that is the same thing Jon calls our cats especially Penelope after she has pooped in the floor. He calls her Sh--head and the Sh--ter!

All I can say about my 4 poms sitting for the picture is that they are strange. Most of the time they are on the move playing and running, but if you get their clothes out and the camera they immediately calm down. The one on the far right in the green is Zander and he is a camera hog. The day we took that picture we probably took about 30 pictures. When we were done and told the dogs they could get down ,everyone hopped down except him, he just wanted his picture taken some more. They are crazy! The one with the black face is Annabelle, she kept falling asleep during the pictures, it was hilarious. I will have to find one of the other's from that day that also has our 2 cats in the picture. That was an experience...the dogs love it, but the cats kept running out of the picture...

Jennifer, you need to use that picture for next year's Christmas card if you send them. I plan to do that every year, but seems like I always miss the boat.

Many of you have talked about your pet's death. I will bring that topic up soon, because I must tell you about Yogi, my first cat that started it all with me, cats, Cats Are Us and the rest. It is a tragic story, but also a miraculous one in a way, because I know his spirit lives on and will tell you all about that. I might have to do it in two parts, though, the before he died and the after he died. Also, the death of my "first born" Tramp, whose picture I have yet to post and my fat beagle Penny, who you all know as the 60 pound beagle! LOL.

jdt, your Poms have a true model mentality and Zander has the Diva attitude! How cute that is that they know when it's time for a photo shoot,ha. Sure wish my cats would do that but mine run when I try to get them all together in one photo. Anyone have any suggestions?

You have to catch cats when they are napping or other wise being lazy. I find cats much easier to take pictures of. Always have your camera on hand so you can quick get a shot when a good pose happens. My cats lay together all the time, so I have it easy. I couldn't imagine posing them though!

I do have a lot of photos of the girls when they were younger and it ws easy to get Brittany and Courtney togetehr when they cuddled all the time. They just rarely do that now and getting Penelope in a photo with them is real hard. I will see if I can find a picture that I already have to send so we can show my girls too.
