**I'm just updating this post because I feel too rediculous doing yet another post about my animals! Last night Eric and I were messing around online, reading about Akitas and such. We happened upon a "The Best Breed For You" quiz on Animal Planet. We fully expected to come back as Lab people and for Akita to be at the bottom of the barrel. But we answered the questions truthfully and were then SHOCKED to see that both Akitas and Huskies were a 96% match for us! Hee Hee!**
Maybe I should just change this into a pet blog! I have blogged ridiculous amounts about animals lately. I guess that says that nothing too too dramatic is going on in the rest of my life (well, except for that kidney transplant thing)!

So I guess it is just my time to stress about our animals. Last week there was Cai, and the liability we had with her about biting others. So we made that tough decision....
Now it's Bangle (our cat). She is the most awesome cat. She is so awesome that she's almost like a dog! LOL! She loves to cuddle and be with us as a family, and even plays fetch with her toys! But the thing is, I am having nightmares about her scratching up our leather furniture. I was kind of embarrassed to share that we got a new leather sofa and chair, but I'm coming out of the closet. Eric has always wanted it...and it was a great deal...and so we did it. But ooops! There is that whole issue of us having a kitten!
So I sat down and started to google "declaw cat." I want to KEEP my kitty and Eric will strangle her if she scratches up the new couch (not really, but he would really probably daydream about it)! First thing that pops up is an ALTERNATIVE! YIPPEE!!!!! So our "Soft Paws" are on their way (rush shipping)!! Thank goodness.
Kilo aka Ki Ki is still doing pretty awesome. No mistakes in the house at all. She just GETS the whole house training perfectly. All other training is going fabulously as well, although she does have a bit of a weakness for cords. As in she likes to chew them. But in all other ways she seems perfect so far. =-)
Well, we have the first virus of the season traveling through the family. Samren was down this weekend, and now Eric's down with it. Ahh...live in the Gillispie fam!
