Fur-babies, Part II

Hello, my darling readers!  I enjoyed posting about some of my fur-babies so much that I decided I needed to share photos of the my other ones sooner rather than later.  First up is Luke's cat Baluue.  His mom adopted Baluue from a shelter as a kitten for Luke after his cat went missing.  Baluue as a 20-plus pound feline, but she still has her kitten meow.  Whenever Luke would have her come to him, he would call out for "Kitty Baluue", and since I have a habit of shortening names, I started calling her Kibuue.  It stuck, and now that is what Luke calls her.  She became close with my cat, and Kibuue was really depressed when we lost my kitty.  She bounced back after a little while, and now she loves when Luke comes home.  She is a firm believer that he sits down just so she can curl up on his lap :D   


 Next up is the rabbit.  We didn't know what to name him at first, so we called him Frank, short for the bacterium Francisella tularensis, the causative agent of rabbit fever.  Nerdy, I know.  Needless to say, the name stuck, and I end up singing "Frank, Frank, Frank! Frank, Frank, Frank! Frank the bunny!  Frank the bunny" to the tune of "Shake Your Booty" by KC and the Sunshine Band on a regular basis.  Frank used to be a 4H bunny, and I think he was handled a little too much and too roughly by the kids.  He is very thumpy and has a strong personality.  I love that he has so much attitude, and it makes me laugh whenever he starts stomping around.    

 For those of you that might want to know, the animals all get along just fine.  In fact, Frank and Kibuue are close buddies.  I never leave them unattended when Frank is out of the cage, but it seems as though everyone knows to back off when Frank gets a little thumpy.

I hope you all enjoyed meeting my little family!
