Little Four-Legged Monsters

Today Alison at The Polohouse is having her Favorites on the 1st Linky Party here .  This month's subject is on the pets that enrich our lives (but can also drive us crazy, at least in my case).  Here are my lovable little monsters.

This is Buster, who rules the roost at Tartan Terrace.  No one messes with Buster.  Love his green eyes. 

Thomas is the latest addition to our menagerie.  He's still in the semi-kitten stage.  We never know what his next gift to us will be (dead lizards, bugs, etc.)  My husband describes him as "a killing machine."  Hey, he's just doing his job.  We expect the police to show up at our door any day, requesting permission to question him about recent crimes in the neighborhood.

Bitsy is, of course, the cutest dog in the world (at least at our house).  She loves to wrestle with Thomas until he's almost driven to distraction.  Then he whacks her and she yelps in dismay and pain.  Serves her right.

I bought this tartan collar and leash on Etsy.  I could spend all day shopping at Etsy.

So these are my sweet little pets.  Couldn't live without 'em!


  1. They are all adorable! I love Buster's green eyes!

  2. They are just precious! I miss having kitties...maybe someday! But as you just read, we are getting our puppy on Saturday! Thanks for commenting on her. We really can't wait and the boys are counting every second! Your blog header is beautiful and I am now going to page thru the rest of your blog.

  3. Love them! My cats are related to your little guy,Buster, I am certain!!
    I smiled when I saw your tartan leash.... love a girl who sticks with plaid even down to dog leashes! Etsy is awesome and I do love all your precious furry ones.
    Thanks for sharing!!!!

  4. Kathy,
    I love your style of writing. And quite enjoyed looking at precious bitsy once more!

    LOVE your blog, it looks superb!

  5. Your cats look very regal and Bitsy is just adorable!

  6. Adorable little furry friends, and your comments gave me a giggle, too.

  7. I can personally vouch for how adorable the furry ones are who reside at Tartan Terrace. It's especially fun to watch Bitsy drag Thomas across the room by one of his hind legs. I don't know anyone with that kind of patience (unless they're on Prozac).

    Love the leash, too.

  8. I saw your blog name/comment on Alison's blog and had to visit, because I'm wild for tartan, too. Your pets are just darling. I think Buster and Thomas must be cousins of our cats, and Bitsy is the cutest, thing with her tartan collar and lead. Hope you had a great weekend and I'm your newest follower.
    Oh, do you celebrate Tartan Day on April 6th?
