Fish in the pond but they are almost invisible because the pond is big and full of plants. At least the heron can't get them. They are under a layer of ice now. At the moment the ice is supporting the cat. The vet says she is too fat so I am worried about her standing there. I can't understand her being fat because she rushes about like a mad thing. She never stops. She likes to play but unfortunately gets a bit vicious. She always climbs down trees bum-first so she won't get stuck.

Her name is Sasha

Oh, and my cats can swim just fine ... found this out by accident when two of them fell into the pool while fighting ... you wouldn't know they fell in the pool other than them being wet because they flew out of the pool faster than a rocket, in fact they probably swim better than my dog, but they don't like water. They also don't like my dog, and the dog is quite afraid of them because they are mean to him.

Sasha's too fat. Not the vet.

The cat, not Grapefruit Girl.

I've got a dog that is part poodle and husky but mostly various terrier. Yes, as a true geek, I had her genetic makeup tested.

2 cats.

The big fat male enjoys 3 things:
1. Sleeping
2. Eating
3. Heelp79086ing meeee tiiiyypeee

He also is quite adept at doing random Google searches by sitting on the keyboard......

The black female likes only her "furmom"---unless I am doing the feeding, at which point I am **tolerated**

Used to have a rabbit. It died :'-(

And why does the poll have two different kinds of fish, but leaves rabbits, guinea pigs, and rodents under 'other'?

1 Ginger Destruction Unit, commonly known as ginger coloured domestic short hair cat, male.

Wreaking havoc where possible (including short circuiting live power cables through chewing on them...), yet extremely friendly to strangers too.

Living alone with him, so I'm his one and only, same as he's mine, and he knows how to exploit that.

Used to have a Bearded Dragon Reptile too, but she died last year :|
