Cow Kitty is about 14 years old. She was my first baby - before dogs, kids, and other cats - it was just Cowie and me. She is a little contrary, but she has been through lots of moves, lots of other pets, a kid, and lots of not being the center of attention that she used to be, so I guess she deserves to be a little grouchy. Now she just wants to be petted and combed (by adults).
She wasn't amused at being dressed up as a reindeer for last year's Christmas picture.
Gunslinger is Ricky's cat. I found him in Missouri - full of fleas and a big attitude. He has a great personality - he is friendly and he puts up with just about anything. He is Ricky's best friend, and no matter what Ricky does to him, he still follows him everywhere. He just needs his weekly fix of catnip.
Slingshot is a retired racing greyhound. Her racing name was O'Reilly Factor, but we thought "Slingshot" was more fitting. She is a very sweet, docile pet. She is still very shy around strangers. When we got her, she had never gone up stairs before. I had to practically carry her up the stairs the first few days we had her, but she eventually got the hang of it. She was very proud of herself the first time she got up the stairs by herself.
