Cody
This was my boy Cody.
He was a Humane Society Rescue as a senior dog with an unknown history 
and in need of a lot of dental and other medical needs (there went my new car), 
so we didn't have as much time with him as we'd like, but we loved every moment...

This is Kootenai (KOOT-nee).

I can call her like a dog (and she comes).
Kootenai
We have 2 cats 
actually the other one, Koot’s sister, is named Yaak, (below)
and she’s a longhair multicolored cat.
 All for now

Some pictures of our panthers.
Here are an assortment.
Enjoy, Sam [KD7PWA] & Dave [KD7PWB]

 
First, we have the amazing 2-headed cat.. Gomez is in front, and Schroeder in back

Here they are feeding at the new lawn, which later became the lawn chair for Gomez.


 
We had a visitor one afternoon, and we thought the kids might like to see it.

But Schroeder wasn't too happy about the Sea Lion once he got a whiff of it.

Here is the Big Boy later that evening.
 
 They are doing better this summer with the harbor seal, though Schroeder is still wary.
