This is rodger he is my cat. He has cost me more money than any other animal i have ever owned in surgeries. He has been hit by a car. Had bladder stone twice, multiple wounds that have needed to be lanced and drained. Now he is back with a wound on his right ear from fighting another cat. He needs surgery called a mattress stitch to close up his ear so it will look normal again. This is another $1000.00 procedure. I have spent ovwr $12,000 in total. I love the little man and hate him at the same time. Got a pet post his picture i would love to see him or her in all thier glory.

That is true companionship! He is a gorgeous cat, scars and all

This is my cat Niblet, aka Nibosaurus Rex because she’s a biting beast and I wouldn’t have it any other way, lol.
Nibosaurus rex. She is abeautiful. Rodge had his surgery this past sunday. He has a cone on and has to wear it for the next three weeks...yikes. He hates this thing. If he did not he would rip all his stitches out.

I was just curious, how do you collectors with pets prevent your furry friends from accidental knocking over and getting into your finds? Do you have safety measures, maybe a locked off room? I've always wanted a pet, but part of the reason (not the main reason but equally as important) why I haven't gotten one is due to me being afraid of them getting accidentally knocking over stiff or even being cut.

Rodger had his stitches out yesterday and now has no cone. Yaaaaaaa! The total on his bill dispite getting a $1000 estimate for the surgery was $2675. Maybe he is made of gold. I wouldn't have it any other way.

I don't have any problem with Rodger. He has 2 windows in the bedroom and all 8 windows in the sunroom. I have bottles in all the other windows. He is also past his kitten phase being 13 years old now. He is an old man now.
I guess i have been fortunate to have such a gentle cat. Unless your a bird or mouse, he really doesn't want to know you. Most of my finds are in boxes wrapped in paper in the basement and closet. I still have 12 boxes of stuff to clean in the livingroom. I can't seem to catch up on my cleaning. For every bottle i clean i find 3 more. It's a vicious cycle.

In Niblet’s case, she is very much a pain in the butt, getting onto shelves and windows she’s not supposed to. The one living room window is high and narrow but long, perfect spot for my glass things. The wood burner is situated right near, and in the cold months, when it’s in use, she can’t get into that window. But now that the fire’s out for the warmer months, she gets on top of that stove and then up into the window.

Does it on purpose when I’m sleeping on the couch and it’s 6 am and she feels I have slept plenty long enough now get up and feed please. She hasn’t knocked the bottles out, but I’ve got these lil tiny glass cat figures that were my gram’s, and she knocks those out one at a time. Plunk, plink, plink into the wood box because she knows I know that exact sound and will jump right up hollering lol. Amazingly she hasn’t broke them yet.

She did however knock a box of West Virginia Specialty Glass pieces that I’d been trying to sell off the top of my dresser in the middle of the night once. Unholy crash, smash, I was like Wha?!! Jumped out of bed right into a nice shard of glass, cut my foot, bled like a stuck pig, carpet looked like something outta CSI before I got myself patched up. Cat was fine though, she hightailed it outta there and hid for a day or so.

She is only about 4 though, and hopefully will calm down with more age on her :rolleyes:

Bottle friends and furries, please meet Zero the Hero Chipmunk killa and Ida my Gal calls her Miss Ida Mae, Ida is the in house mouse Killa. They have never caused me any breakage. They both seem to think they can take a slice of bacon or roast beef when they get the hankering tho. i have an Instagram account @fredspix0412 ...I got a lot of landscape, nature, bird, old house pics and of course pics of my furries.
