February 20 is #LoveYourPetDay #SundayStills

This week’s Sunday Stills challenge theme is ‘Love Your Pet.’ See more responses on Terri Webster Schrandt’s blog here.

Pets are a staple in nine out of ten households, and while dogs and cats are popular choices many families cherish a variety of other creatures such as chickens, llamas, bunnies, birds, gerbils, and even mice!

Above is a photo of Harley, our nine-year-old calico. She grew up with a German Shepherd for company and consequently thinks she’s our protector. We had to put a sign out front, Beware of Cat, lol.

People get a kick out of seeing Harley going for a walk by leash. She enjoys the time out of the yard and a good back scratch on the rocks!

Summers are spent outside soaking up the sun and watching the hummingbirds flit around our yard.

Lately, she’s taken to sitting in this odd way- funny girl 🙂

And finally, this is our sweet Annie.

The man who owned her was going to have her put down because she was the rut of the litter and was extremely skittish. Bob couldn’t let that happen, so he brought her home and spent two days laying under our lilac tree in the backyard trying to gain her trust. She was just six months old, skinny, and frightened, but slowly, he won her over and she became his shadow for the next eight years.

We lost her near Christmas in 2019.

  1. Aww, Annie was a beautiful girl, and the fact you rescued her was a gift from God that blessed all of you. We do a lot for our sweeties! Harley is incredible looking and looks very happy–like the Cheshire Cat! And he looks so soft and pettable! How cool he can walk on a leash. We can’t have cats here because the owls would swoop down and get them!

    I think I may have told you already, but we have a tortie cat, too. She is the sweetest thing. Her name is Josie Pye. And our rough and tumble Cesare is our orange tabby. He’s my writing partner, you know. lol I call him the Chief of Cheesy Writing.

    1. Thank you, Robbie. I’ve had a hard time letting Annie go, she stole my heart.
      Hey, while I have you, I saw the video of the two male lions you took (AMAZING!), is it rare to see males together like that?
