Independence Day

We are Catanadians, but we love our friends south of the border and Deli and I wanted to help our new Monkey, Gabriel, celebrate the country where he was born.  We are re-posting an older photo of Deli and I showing our respect and love for the U.S. flag.

Delilah, about to sing the national anthem

It may seem disrespectful that Delilah is putting the bitey on the flag, but she's a Tortie, and that's how Torties show their love.  At least that's what she tells me when she puts the bitey on me!



To commemorate the July 4th holiday, Sweet Pea and Gabriel are going to spend the day fighting for freedom.


It may look rough, but Sweet Pea is very gentle with Gabriel.


We hope you all have a wonderful and safe holiday.

Samson

Thanks for the good wishes. Love the picture of Sam and Delilah with the flag. I bet Gabriel is learning to give it right back to Sweet Pea. They will be big chums before long. Hope all of you have a great day.

Happy Fourth of July, dear friends! We love those pictures of Samson and Delilah with the flag, and how great that Sweet Pea and little Gabriel are playing together. :)

Thank you, sweet friends.

Yup, our mama can attest to the "tortie bitey" thing.....Shelly puts the bitey on mama sometimes cuz she's so overcome by love!!!!!! She tries it with us boys, too, but we growl and hiss and chase her off!!!!!!!!

We are so happy that Sweepy and Gabby are getting along so well.

Have a very happy Monday....xxxxxxxx
