  • Hey, I'm not wrong. I'm just not completely right.

Must be a good camera to get a non-blur hummingbird pic.

Love the blue eyes!

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Oliver yesterday morning.  I hadn't fed him yet...so he decided to become a distraction until I stopped what I was doing.
Typical cattitude. :P

Beautiful!!! I want to cuddle-molest him!

My mom has two cats. She is also the kind of woman that doesn't talk and can put the fear of wrath in anyone who gets between her and her morning coffee. When she wakes up, both cats are up on the counter sitting on either side of the coffee pot. She attempts to make coffee. The cats work as a team and wrap their tails around the coffee maker. She has learned that in order to get coffee, she must fill the cat's food bowls.

Cats are brave... very very brave.
Haha!
Awesome picture! :clap:

Thanks :D

I sold off a lot of my pro stuff (a painful departure it was) and kept my semi pro stuff seeing as it's mainly just a hobby at this point. But it's a very relaxing hobby at least :yes:

I was going through photos of my Lab and found this one. This was taken when he was about eight months old. (If I remember correctly.) I made a meme out of it because his face is a priceless WTF? :)

This is my baby girl, Mickey <3 I've never had such an amazing bond with an animal, I swear we're kindred.

This is Daphy--she isn't really mine, but the boyfriend's mama. She's just too cute not to share a photo!

Posted Image


This is Kayley, the cat that my boyfriend and I adopted from the shelter.


Posted Image


And the last of the cats, Baby. He was an abandoned kitten living in Mick's neighborhood that his family rescued (:

Posted Image


And lastly, my dog Daisy Mae. She looks like a chocolate lab in this photo, but she's a black lab. She had just found a nice pile of dirt to roll in lol

Phew, sorry about my barrage of pets! xD

Everyone has such adorable furbabies!

xoxo

Oh, yes. Although Daphy, Kayley and Baby are in one home; Daisy at my mom's and Mickey is with me full-time.
Luckily, the cats Kayley and Baby were fast friends and are very much like brother and sister. They're the most entertaining duo of cats I've ever had.
I was completely taken aback at first, as Baby was wandering my boyfriend's neighborhood for months and we had just adopted Kayley.
From the get-go they were in love with each other. I've never seen two cats who weren't siblings or at least raised together be so friendly towards each other.
As evidence, here's a photo I snapped a while ago of the two together:

Some pets, no matter species, were meant to be together.  My two late cats, Ceasar and Monty were like that.  Not related but the best of friends and ultimately family.  I loved them both dearly.  I still have their ashes.

I'm sad to say that my little dog Bo died over the weekend. She went into breathing distress due to her advanced heart disease and had to go to the Pet ER at 1 in the morning. They tried giving her oxygen and an IV of medication, but she did not pull through.

Here at Intel we make processors on 12 inch wafers. And, the individual processors on the wafers are called die. And, I am employed to check these die. That is why I am the DieChecker.

Thanks!

My wife was already looking for a 2nd dog, and we'll keep looking for now. We're looking at spaniels and other mid sized dogs.

I tried to convince her (briefly) to get one of those giant Nazi rabbits. :tu:  (They're actually called Flemings giant rabbits, I think)
