Introducing myself...I am Skippy!

My name is Skippy. I thought that I would introduce myself since my two legged mommy joined this site recently and mentioned that I live in our home with two cats, Dusty and Peaches, and my two legged daddy. The five of us are quite happy now.

The reason I say ‘now’ is that I started out being kicked by my original owner…the man in the house. He was really mean! Apparently he did not want a puppy in his house. The woman who lived with him could not prevent it and I was saved by literally being puppy-napped by one of whom would have become my human grandmothers. Thank heavens!

I ended up being fostered for a while by a great and caring lady who also did grooming until she found another home for me. But sadly my saintly two legged mommy died after I had lived with her for quite a few wonderful years. Her daughter is now who I referred to as my two legged mommy and she and her hubby are also great animal lovers.

Dusty the cat did not like me at first but we have made a peace contract between us. Mostly I just avoid him and that seems to work pretty well. At first he did a lot of hissing when I would get close to him and he would swing at me with one of his paws. He has his claws and I did not want to get a nasty scratch on my nose.

The other cat in this house is Peaches and she and I like to play every day. She is about my same size and most mornings we have quite a tussle. She does a lot of napping every day, but so do I while my mommy is typing away on the computer.

So all in all, things have worked out very well for me and I love my feline and human family.

I hope you like my picture. My hair is now cut a lot shorter and I like it both ways as long as I get brushed daily. I love the brushing and also the attention I get while being brushed.

Hope you are all having a great day! I will talk to you later about other things in my life soon.

Someone must be a very dedicated mommy to do such a great brushing job. Quite a nice hairdo.

Hello and purrs from me, Guiness the Cat! It's so wonderful to meet a dog who can write. Nothing personal, as you write very well, but while I know tons of feline writers, I've never run across that many dogs who can spell, much less make a complete sentence. This is wonderful! I dub you an honorary member of the Professional Cat Bloggers Association.

The Fuzzy Trio used to have canine siblings; they miss their late brother and sister. They say that your feline siblings are lucky to have you, Skippy.

You look like a relative of my chica. Are you a barker? If my chica had been a male, I'd have called him Bob Barker.

Aww such a sweetie. I now have a little Yorkie and a cat. I had two cats until late December when my older cat died quite suddenly. I miss the heck out of her. She was family! But my Molly and my cat Baby keep me busy. :)

Yes, I love your photo Skippy, you are such a cute lovely dog, I cannot understand how someone tried to hurt you.

You cannot really blame Dusty for not liking you at first because you have taken away some of the attention that she received when there were only 2 cats in the house. At least you get on quite well now, so the past is longer important, it is the present that really matters..

Such a lucky dog you are, Skippy, to be a member of that household.

People should not get pets unless everyone in the house wants a pet and is fully ready for one.

You are so handsome on your photo, skippy. Heheheh, I am sorry for the old lady who has a wonderful heart who adopted you. And I think even pets ha its own drams in life and you are one of them. It is nice that her daughter also has a great heart in loving and adopting you as well as her hubby, may you always be bless and your family with God's protection and provision. You and the cats are so cute as you tell your story here. See you more in here.
