Readers: Send Me Your Pet Photos
For some unexplicable reason that no mortal can beging to fathom, the cat formerly know as Tweey, now dubbed Shadow by Dragon and the Lady Gunievere, has developed a total, I'm-in-love, out-of-control obsession with the gruff, fire-breathing Dragon! In fact, Shadow is addicted to him! Or maybe he's just carrying a dead fish around in his pocket?
According to Lady Guinevere, Shadow is the right name, as she follows Dragon wherever he goes. When he takes a shower to wash off his scaliness, Shadow lies patiently on the bath mat outside of the shower. It now takes Dragon twice as long to get dressed in the morning, as Shadow will not leave him alone, always grabbing his legs or arms with her paws and butting her head into his chest asking for pets.
Me thinks the Shadow has found the castle of her dreams. I think it's a good thing she is a mere female cat and not a mere female, or Guinevere would be out on her ear in the snow living with Punkin and Casper in the Cat House.
Why do you think a dog or cat picks out a favorite person? Zoe picked out The Boss and she is definately Daddy's Girl. She must suffer from the same disease as Shadow.
I love the way Shadow is sleeping so protectively with Dragon. There are two types of pet owners: those who do not allow dogs, say, on any funiture and others, who let them anywhere they want to go (that would be most of us). But don't dog packs sleep together in the wild? Or does the alpha leader banish some lower members to outside the inner circle?
We've seen so many great pet photos over the months. If anyone has some they'd like to share with the Pet People masses, please e-mail them to me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and include a description of the pets and people and tell us all about them and I'll post them here as soon as possible.
