Meet the Family

Not much going on over here in the Deitering world, so I thought I would introduce you to the family.  :-)  AND I never realized how difficult it was to take pics of these goofy animals, so excuse the pics.

Meet Dot
We picked up Dot from a lady Brand worked with and she has been the most interesting cat. She has NEVER liked to be petted past her head and neck area....she hates it, she will bite, yell, run....she doesn't like it. She also enjoys finding ONLY black clothing, fabric, purses ... and sleeping on them. It's true, the darker fabric, the better.  :) She is also our weightiest cat, weighing in at 16 pounds....yes 16. Her nickname is "heavy d". She had a distinctive orange dot on her head....hence the name, we almost named her "india" because of the dot .... but we didn't want to have to explain her name all the time.
She is not a fan of children, loud noises, the sun, wetness, people ..... pretty much everything. :) She's a middle "child" like I was, so we love her.  :)



Meet Twilia
This is my baby. She has been with us for 6 years and I think she is my favorite, because I am the only one she really loves and lets pet her. She has a TON of attitude.....a TON. She doesn't like people AT ALL, everyone is afraid to pet her, and they should be, she has scratched the mess out of several people. I warned them, but they didn't listen..... She adores the outside, but we don't let her out too much, because she has no fear of dogs, and would rather face them head on and hiss at them, than run up a tree....no bueno. So she sits infront of this window and dreams all day. In december she had to have some vet visits because she scratched her ear so hard (ear mites) that she ruptured a blood vessel in her ear and it filled with blood and ..... it was yucky. So after the little operation, she now has a deformed ear, but I think it makes her look cuter.  :-)
She sticks her tongue out alot.....it's funny....she snores when she sleeps.....she likes to lay on her back (funny looking, can't quite get a pic of it).... she loves the smell of grease, like car grease, if Brand has been outside working on something, she will love him and sleep on his clothes.... she weighs in at 12 pounds. She's my baby girl.


Meet Abbie

We fostered Abbie and her sister about 2 years from Brand's mom, when their mom died. She was named Abbie for being a little Abnormal. She has 6 toes on both front paws, 4 on the back right foot and 5 on the back left. She is a camera hog...but she likes to walk right up to the camera and not hold still or show no interest....so we get a lot of pics like this
She is a light weight, weighing in a a whopping 5 pounds (if that), she HATES baths with a passion (the other two, don't like baths but they will tolerate it). She gets into everything.....everything and she also loves to sleep on my fabric, purses, clothes, clean laundry......etc. She also likes to talk, has a great fondess for toliet paper....well any paper, she likes to "help" me craft, "help" me type...... she sleep between Brand and I at night, and she is one crazy cat, and she was one SUPER cute kitten....


Anywho, that's us. At any point in time we may add to this bunch, it happens.  :)
Have a great day!
