Our Animals

Cat-dog:

Cat-dog is our Border-Collie / Aussie / some other breed pup that's my Experience Arizona sidekick. Although she's usually more cat-like than dog, she's a great exploring and adventure companion.

Rosie:

Rosie is a Australian Shepherd we got from Pennsylvania. She's a loveable dog who loves to play catch with a tennis ball, bark and raise kittens. She came from an awesome family of Aussie's and we miss her sister (Sabrina) and her aunt (Chelsea) who passed away a few years ago.

Gidget:

Cat-dog is our Border-Collie / Aussie / some other breed pup that's my Experience Arizona sidekick. Although she's usually more cat-like than dog, she's a great exploring and adventure companion.

Rosemary:

Rosemary was adopted when a neighbor rescued a cat (who they didn't know was pregnant at the time) gave birth to a bunch of kittens. I had always been a fan of large male cats and had never cared much for small, delicate tortoiseshell cats. Rosemary changed my mind. She's a good girl who likes to eat (ie needs to go on a diet), nap on her princess pillow, play hide-and-seek and has an opera-like meow when she's hungry (which is most of the time). She is the princess of the household.

The Weesley Twins:

Fred and George are two orange tabbie brothers who are named after the Harry Potter ginger twins of Fred and George Weesley. We adopted them from Globe in 2013. They are quite the pair, every ounce a Weesley by nature. Very mischevious, but cute as the dickens.

 

Fabulous Fred:

Fred is a medium long-haired orange tabbie who is one of the sweetest cats I know. He has one of the most beautiful tails I've ever seen. It is just furry and fabulous. And I think he knows this and is just a little XXX about it. He also LOVES food and runs when you open a can of wet food. He will also run across the yard to greet you and when you say his name, he'll raise his fabulous tail striaght up in the air.

Gorgeous George:

Rosemary was adopted when a neighbor rescued a cat (who they didn't know was pregnant at the time) gave birth to a bunch of kittens. I had always been a fan of large male cats and had never cared much for small, delicate tortoiseshell cats. Rosemary changed my mind. She's a good girl who likes to eat (ie needs to go on a diet), nap on her princess pillow, play hide-and-seek and has an opera-like meow when she's hungry (which is most of the time). She is the princess of the household.

 

 

 

Tyson:

Tyson is a 18-year-old Maine Coon. He was named Tyson because when he was a kitten his paws looked were so big he looked like he was wearing boxing gloves. He's a great cat who just wants to live the rest of his life napping in the sun, eating good food and catching an occasional packrat.

Silver:

Silver found us while we were camping in Silverton, Colorado (hence the name). He's a manx with what looks like some Maine Coon in him too. He came into our camp and immediately adopted us. We found the owner, who said she didn't want him anymore (she had two large dogs who didn't like cats). He rode home with us like he'd done it a hundred times. He still doesn't care much for our dogs, but is working on it. He loves attention and catnip.

 

Cassanova:

Abbie came to us from a friend about ten years ago. She used to be a show horse, but has decided she'd rather take it easy and do tricks instead. She's a quick learner and can smile, bow, nod yes and no and pick up your backpack for you.
