My kids

I hope I can do this right. I just introduced my kids in the New Kids on the Block forum and wanted to show them here. So, with no further ado, introducing (drum roll please):

Taz (DSH, orange w/white tabby)

Taz is handsome.

Thanks greycat. I think so too but I may be a tiny bit prejudice.

I have a technical question. I can't see the pictures I sent, but someone else can. I think it might have something to do with the Virus and Firewall protection on my laptop. I can see text and people's sig lines, including their pictures.

Is there something I need to set to see pictures attached?

Beautiful animals! I love the standing pose by Taz, very cute.

Thanks! Taz sometimes thinks their heads are basketballs to be "dribbled", but the ferrets get their revenge by giving his belly love bites. And believe me, they have sharp teeth and powerful jaws. Taz is no dummy and now only tries to play "basketball" when he has an avenue of escape.

Thanks everybody for making my furkids feel so welcome.

As for how Taz gets along with the ferrets, I'm not really sure what he thinks they are. But it's funny, all the cats treat them with respect. When they see birds outside their behavior changes instantly and they all immediately go into stalk mode. They show none of that behavior towards the ferrets and almost treat them as if they are cats. They seem to recognize that ferrets are predators and not a prey animal. Perhaps because ferret body language can be similar to that of cats. They hiss when they have had enough and want to be left alone. They arch their backs to make themselves seem bigger to a possible threat.

If anything, they seem to definitely enjoy watching them. Once the ferrets start doing their "wardance", that's a signal for the cats to start playing with each other. The cats will sometimes chase the ferrets, but it's all in play and sometimes the ferrets turn the table and chase the cats. It's too funny sometimes.

Oh, I forgot to mention that the dog absolutely LOVES the ferrets, the ferrets have NO fear of her, all 65 lbs of her, and the cats and dog all get along. Now if 3 totally different species can get along, why the heck can't humans figure it out?!?!

thanks everyone for all the wonderful compliments on my kids. Recently, I bought a new digital camera that I've been bugging the kids with. I LOVE it. Here's some more pics (using the old camera).
