    I used to have cats before I moved to Scotland. Now there isn't any room for cats, or any other pets for that matter. Sad. :(


    And no, I don't have a parrot.

    that is VERY sad :( I'm sorry. Living without animals is terrible and a future I'm facing as well.

    Good for you Meadow! Undeniable but true that cat's are much easier to care for. Full bowl and water dish, clean litter box and all is right in the world. I love my dogs dearly but it's like having toddlers permanently in the house. Keeping them out of dangerous situations, keeping up with their pottying, daily corrections and separation anxiety...woooof

    Cats are indeed so much more independent.

    Awww Harry looks like our Levon. And last night I got my kid another young rat. Nice thing about rats compared to other creatures, you can add a baby or even adult to unrelated ones and everyone gets on fine.

    Beautiful pictures Meadow!
