    Another of my sister’s cats. This is my buddy Jessie. I posted a while back about how he figured out how to open the drawer where the catnip is stored. He loves my pill bottles.

    Great pic of Jessie.
    They say catnip is like weed for felines. :whistle:

    You keep catnip in your pill bottles?

    This is the little feral cat that comes and goes. I call her Miss Kitty.

    She's a cutie.
    We had a stray cat friend that used to come around our old house when she was about
    to have kittens. Looked a lot like this one.
    She was most likely abandoned, as she was friendly and interacted with us well.
    Tried to catch her in a humane trap to get her fixed but she was too smart for that.
    She had some of the most beautiful little ones and two of ours, Caelan and Brindle are
    descendants of hers.
    We called her Mama Kitty.

    Today I fed Miss Kitty the feral cat. Next thing I know the neighborhood non-homeless cat is raiding the cat bowl. Little Tuxedo Sylvester cat of course. She has a collar. She/he is taken advantage of my charity.

    I can see by the look on her face she was thinking "Blessings upon you, dear lady." :angel:

    Especially the one licking her chops. She looks destitute and hungry.

    Off topic, by the way but have to tell you Val, I saw the pics of your serrano chili hot sauce on another thread
    and it looked fantastic. Was drool worthy. :licklips:
    Serranos are my favorite. So much flavor along with the heat.
    If you've got a recipe you'd be willing to share I'd be much obliged. :nworthy:

    3 cans 14.5 oz chopped fire roasted tomatoes (I used ones with garlic)
    6 cloves garlic
    one cup chopped onions - about 1 large onion
    6-10 serranos chopped
    2 jalapenos chopped - I cheated and used 2 large tablespoons chopped jalapenos in a jar
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup fresh cilantro - more if you like
    juice of one small lime
    1 tablespoon of sugar (I don't use)

    This time I used a combination of fresh tomatoes and canned. -- Mainly there was no way I can eat all the fresh tomatoes my plants are putting out and wanted to make use of them. One thing on using fresh tomatoes is taking the skin off - which can be a bit of pain. I either roast or broil in the oven to loosen the skin, I prefer a canned diced fire roasted tomato - fire roasted makes all the difference. I normally use the equivalent of about 3 cans (14.5 oz), 4-6 large cloves of garlic - I use 6 - love garlic, 1 cup chopped onion, I used about 10 serrano chilis I didn't count - I had my husband taste to his heat. Recipe also calls for jalapenos, (didn't feel like chopping more peppers so I used about 2 tablespoons of the chopped jalapeno in a jar) 1 small lime squeezed, one teaspoon salt, and about 1/2 cup of fresh cilantro doesn't hurt to add more cilantro if you like the taste. I can't find the exact recipe I used and I just wing this one. It did call for a tablespoon of sugar (I did this once and it was too sweet for me) - I like it without the sugar - the sugar is used to decrease the heat bite. I would add it if mine came out to hot though - maybe just a teaspoon.

    Put all this in my Ninja blender. Comes out perfect - I just missed the mark on the heat the last time. A neat trick my son taught me to get the skin off the garlic. Put about 4-6 cloves in a smaller yetti type metal coffee cup and put lid on and then shake vigorously like you are making a mean martini - the skin just sheds off and you don't have to crush and peel.

    Just printed this up! :beer:
    I'm not going to bother with the sugar either.
    I can tell by the ingredients it's going to be delicious.
    Hubby will like it too.
    We always keep a good stock of canned, fire-roasted tomatoes,
    so I'm ahead of the game with a lot of the ingredients.
    Thanks for taking the time to write this up for me. :)

    This is Leah, she passed away 2 years ago and is missed. She was a great doggy.

    We decided that even though we would love to add a new pug to our life, with the boys just about grown now (19 and 16) we want to travel more and not worry about a dog. Leah passed away while we were away on vacation at a doggy sitter so we don't think we could ever leave a dog with a sitter again. Truthful Leah passed at 9 yrs old and I totally believe the sitter was at fault. :( IMG_0984.JPG IMG_1178.JPG IMG_3725.JPG

    I can see Leah was loved very much and I’m sorry about her passing. Thanks for sharing those great pictures.

    Thanks...our Abby was about 3yo in that pic taken in 2004, on Fiesta Island in San Diego. Prime of her sporting life, could run and chase seemingly all day. Was especially fond of jackrabbits in the vineyards.
    We like to think she helped to prove the saying "a tired dog is a happy dog"...

    Here she is in her retirement, now 15yo and nursing some sore legs and an arthritic back that has given her a hitch in her git-along. During the day she is still bright eyed and willing, but her body holds her back. Woe betides the stray bluejay who enters her yard as she still musters the will to jump and chase after the intruder, with the enthusiasm of her youth now tempered by the infirmities of her age.

    At night we can hear her as she dreams clearly vivid dreams of running and chasing, yelping softly as she goes:
