Ripley's buddy, Loki, is an old, old cat. I figured out that he is now 13 years old AND he was already a year old when we adopted him! He'd been in another home and they were moving and couldn't take him with them, and I found him at PETCO, on one of their "adopt an animal" days! He trained both of our German Shepherds~ our previous one and Rommel. Ripley? He hasn't exactly trained her yet, and she often tries to take a nip at him, but he simply walks away! Hmmppfffff~~~he can't be bothered! Here he is walking on my husband's car, doing nothing (his favorite pasttime!) Camera Critters for March 29, 2009.
