Let’s wish Bobby-Ryan happy birthday! He turns five on June 22nd.

He’s adopted from the Humane Society. Bobby-Ryan loves to bird watch, suntan, roll around on the deck and get belly rubs. Sounds like my soulmate!

He’s chatty in the mornings and loves baked goods- especially fruit explosion and carrot muffins.

From his parents, Jenn and Jamie Van Dusen, myself and of course, Bobby-Ryan, have a furtastic Friday!

This is Anya. She’s two years old and her breed is…muppet?

Anya loves to watch squirrels and attack unwary toys and dandelions. She has a gentle soul and is a truly a lovable, well behaved ball of fur.

Her favourite saying? “Where ya going, Mom?”

From her parent, Kelly Benish, myself, and of course, Anya, have a Furtastic Friday!

Meet Gracie, the tri-paw!

Gracie is 4 years old and was rescued from a dog hoarder, where she had been left in a cage for one year.

Four months after she became Anna’s pet, it was determined that one of her legs was severely fractured. Gracie never complained; she lost her leg, but not her spirit.

Gracie is truly a gift and is the love of Anna’s life.

From myself, Anna and Gracie, have a furtastic Friday!

Wanna play?

Meet Bruce, a Rhodesian Ridgeback also known as an African Lion hound.

Bruce is special because, even though he is a purebred, he has no ridge. He has outbursts of energy where he likes to play and run (as fast as 55 km/hr!) but he’s often pretty lazy.

You can usually find him cuddled up on the couch or laying in his little dirt patch that he created for shade.

Bruce is a big boy (as tall as some adults when he’s on his hind legs!) and has a giant heart to match his size. If he sees a packed overnight bag, he knows someone is leaving and gets sad.

From Bruce’s parents Kyle Farrell and Gracie Macdonald, myself, and, of course, Bruce, have a Furtastic Friday!

Yumm, good stuff!

Meet Chippy, one of the many chipmunks we feed.

I’m not sure which one this is… we have named some of them, the ones that are very distinct. This might be Earl, but I’d need to see his right side to confirm it. We live on what used to be an apple orchard and with many apple trees still on the property, our place is a crowd favourite for wildlife.

The chipmunks actually line up throughout the day at feeding time. I kid you not! Some wait patiently for the guy ahead to finish and leave, whereas others flex their furry little muscles and pounce. By the end of every summer, we usually have a few of them that trust us enough to eat out of our hands.

Meet “Zen”!

From all my chippies and I, have a Furtastic Friday!

I heard you say “Friday”…

Meet Bart, our rescue cat. Actually, I think we rescued each other.

He’s two years old and we think he’s an American Bombay. Bart is extremely friendly and enjoys yoga and meditation (you’ll see him in a lot of future posts), chasing mice, and watching the birds and chipmunks. We’re a lot alike- except I don’t chase mice. In his spare time, he likes to sleep on my feet, or in a cardboard box.

From Bart and I, have a Furtastic Friday!
