Furry and feathered friends

August 4, 2010 - Nikki Younk
Here's a look at just a few of the many, many animals in my life. I don't own any of them, but I like to think I do.

Just click through the pictures on the right side of the screen.

Meet Floyd. He's a dashing young fellow, isn't he? Floyd is a two-year-old Chinese Shar pei, once one of the rarest dog breeds in the world. Favorite activities of Floyd the friendly dog are obeying commands from Nikki, battling with his best friend Bella (that's her in the background), and eating vanilla ice cream from his special bowl (which he likes to carry around afterward, as you can see).

This hefty guy is Big Man. Aptly titled, as he is a rather large cat. Big Man enjoys eating mice and other rodents whole, as well as eating anything else within reach. Frosted Flakes are a former favorite. Despite all this consumption, Big has lost weight in the past year. He's only 14.8 pounds now, down from 18 pounds. Way to get fit, Big!

This fine lady is Lily. She's technically a geriatric, at 16 years old. However, she hasn't lost her attitude...or her bite.

Nigel is a bit on the shy side, but his tail is always raised in friendship. Especially when he's cuddled with his best friend, Big Man.

Finally, we have Kramer. Sure, he's a cockatoo, but really, I think he's a bird of prey. That beak has tasted human blood. Beware!
