Fine looking cat Martin. Great shot too. Looks like Monty is standing watch.
This is William of Orange peering from the roof:
And this is Isis:
I have three more beauties, Nina, Nefertiti and Miosotis, all strays taken in from the street.
Good man you are Za!
Za, that picture of William of Orange "peering from the roof", I recognize the clay tiles, but what is that white stuff under them? OT, I know, but could you
post a picture of your house? Being a carpenter, I'm always interested in other country's techniques. You living in Portugal and all.
I commend you for taking in strays,too. If ever I get another pet, I'll get it from the pound.
The stuff under the tiles is plain mortar painted white. I'll get you a pic or two tomorrow
That black tip on William's ear is car oil. These damned cats have this fetish for car engines, they can get incredibly dirty while trying to lick grease
I can relate to that one Za. My umbrella cockatoo is quite the curious one, following me around like a puppy dog, by flight and walking when I'm involved in projects. She recently got underneath my truck to see what I was doing. Her headdress went up promptly, an expression of curiosity. My wife took her before her bright white was turned gray.
Cockatoos are fine birds, I'd have one if not for the obvious conflict of interests
Today William was following me over the street and for a distance when I was going to dispose of the garbage. There was another one (now sadly deceased) which I had to lock at home when I left for work or she would follow me all the way.
I call him mini me!
Yes he is the one that fell out of the window,
He behaves much better when he is in the tub.... (Spoiled bastard! )
Wot, not Putin?
Here’s the feathered member of our family, Meisha. For her eighteenth birthday, her flight restrictions were lifted to include open air flying.
Cooling off between flights:
B2 Bomber Form:
I knew I should have never shown her the Nazi Eagle:
I love the water fountain pic, White Flight. 18? Is that old for a bird?
No not really. The lifespan of some parrots is similar to humans. Some sources put the cockatoos on the high end of the scale, 65-years. Based of course on a healthy environment. Open air flying is improving her health with the increased exercise. She needs to work on her tail wind landings though.
Beware of wind shear! Give her some flight simulator training, it's more economical and she can rehearse for emergency situations at will, no bones broken ever
Well, this is our lot.
Tabby...looking cool under interrogation
You lucky so and so, they are some beauiful horses! One day I hope to have one of my own.
A pretty lot, Gordon
What are the horses, Hostorian? We have American Saddlebreds, Quarter Horses and a Shetland. I'm about to go and ride a 10 year old mare, then saddle up two fillies for my daughters
Cheers Miguel and Stefan.
Kerry's a Thoroughbred (she was a former racehorse before we bought her), Spice is a Welsh Mountain pony Section 'B', Warwick is a Welsh Cob Section 'C' and Rosie is a Welsh Cob Section 'D'.
My in-laws breed Welsh Cobs.
A gorgeous group of animals there Gordon! I've always had a soft spot for these animals.
