Here is a photo with "Lexie" the beagle who showed up one day in our yard with these two kitties. It turns out they all live back behind my house at another neighbors.
This kitty cat is named "Socks" and is one of Meowzer's kids. Socks doesn't visit near as much anymore so I was quite surprised she was here with the rest of the gang today.
Lexie the beagle runs in the neighborhood playing with all the kids and other dogs that allow her. It frustrates me and I'm so afraid she will get hurt. Just about every evening when Lexie heads back for home she stops at my porch for a biscuit. Yes, I keep dog biscuits and kitty food in the house just because I do love their visits.
This is Meowzer's other sweet baby named "Midnight." She visits more than all of them and is very demanding with her loving. The neighbors keep collars on all of them. One day Midnight showed up at the front door with the collar on her neck but also caught up underneath a front leg. I had to CUT it off with scissors! It made me so mad.
I can't have any of my own because my husband's allergies. But I'm content with Emily, Socks, Midnight and Lexie coming around periodically for visits and I have no vet bills.
