Trauma at JB's House!

Today was a very bad day! I think I knew something was up, but it was too late.....Mom grabbed me and put me in my cat carrier, and put me in the car. I started hyperventilating, crying, and shrieking really loud, and if you heard it, you would not have believed such loud sounds could come out of such a small Jelly Bean! We were off to the vet's office.

At first I waited in my box in that little room, waiting for Dr. Staph. I was shaking so hard that my Mom took me out of the box and held me while we waited some more. Then a girl

came in and told mom that she would weigh me and take my temperature.....yeah, I knew what that meant.....I'd get a cold thermometer up my butt.......not a good feeling, let me tell you! After I came back from that ordeal, I decided to hide my face as hard as I could in mom's arms, so maybe nobody could find me!
But, it did not work. Dr. Staph came in and gave me my yearly exam, and checked all my parts to make sure I was healthy. He also gave me my rabies shot. By this time I had calmed down, as I knew it was almost over, and we would be going home soon.

Then we left, and I was safe at home again. I was a little disoriented when I poked my head out of my box, but then I was soon back to normal. Dr Staph gave me a good report except for my teeth. I heard him whispering to mom that I'd have to get my teeth cleaned around February or March. I will definitely have to think of a plan to get out of that!!

Blue Lizard

This is Daddy Len's favorite picture that he took when he and mom went to Aruba recently. This blue lizard is one of the oldest inhabitants of Aruba. It looks a little scary to me, but I heard it is not poisonous or mean or anything like that. It likes to eat flies, just like I do!

Police Horse in New Orleans

In New Orleans, there are really big tall horses that the mounted police ride. They have to work, and help to make sure that people don't get too rowdy on Bourbon Street. I don't understand why so many of my horse friends all have to work so much. I am glad I am not a horse, because I would rather play than work!

Llamas in the Country!

Here are some pictures of some llamas. They live out where mom and Daddy Len go bike riding sort of out in the country. Mom said that they live in a pasture near tractors and trailers so they don't have a very nice home. I wish they could come and live with us! I would like to snuggle in their fluffy fur!

They sure are funny animals! Look at how big the brown llama's front bottom teeth are! I think they originally come from Peru in the Andes Mountains, and I think they like to spit a lot!

Wake Up Kitty Video-- Check This Out!

Check this out.....this is me with mom in the morning! I need her to pay attention to me all the time!

Adopted by my Mom's Friend

I just had to post this picture, because these kitties are so cute and sweet! My mom's friend just adopted them. Their names are Noah and Sunny. I wish I could meet them, but mom makes me stay at home. I would rather stay home, since I get very scared when I have to go in my cat carrier, since that always means I have to go to see Dr. Staph, and I don't like that one bit! I would like some new friends to play with one day though............

Little Yellow Birdie

Mom took a TON of pictures in Aruba on her last trip, so I will mix them in, in between my other pictures. I REALLY liked this one.

It was a little yellow birdie, and mom said they were all over the island. They are called bananaquits or chibichibis. I wish I could have seen them.

She said they were even flying around an outdoor pancake restaurant and they were sneaking sips of sweet syrup right off the tables! Someone on the island told mom they are nicknamed "sugar thieves"!

Chinese Lion in Portland

Daddy Len is a pilot, and he travels to a lot to different places. He came home from his last trip and said he saw a lion in Portland! I was SO excited to see the picture he took of the lion, but it turns out it was not a real lion. It was a stone lion at the entrance to China Town in Portland.......Daddy Len played a joke on me! He knows I only like real animals!!

The Biggest Moth Ever!

Hi, it's me JB again.
I really like this moth friend of mine and you can't even tell from the picture how big he really was! Mom found him taking a rest stuck to the outside of our garage, and she said he was at least 5 or 6 inches wide! I wish I could have played with THIS moth. I have only found small moths in the house, and only a couple, and I tried to eat them.

Dolphin Friends in Venezuela?

These are my dolphin friends from Venezuela. You might say, what? Dolphins in Venezuela?? Well, they live at a big swimming pool in Venezuela, and it is kind of sad, because they can never go swimming in the ocean where they really belong.

Their job is to swim with people at this pool. Mom swam with them, but was sad for them too. I think they should be able to go home to the sea where they could be free.

My Sister, Taffy

This if Taffy. She was my oldest big sister, but last year Mom had to put her to sleep. She was 15 and had bad arthritis, was VERY skinny, and probably had cancer. Mom tried to go to Dr. Staph many times with her to see if he could help her, but she was too sick. She was my favorite sister, and I miss her. Sometimes, I still go and sit in the towel basket over the tub, and can still sniff her.....because Mom left the towels there that she used to sit on. That was a sad time.

My Sisters

I mentioned that I live with my Mom and Daddy Len, but I also live with my two sisters, Misty and PooPoo. They were adopted by my mom from a shelter in CA when we lived there. Misty is gray and very cool, and she was very sick last year and had a kidney removed! Mom had to nurse her back to health for over 3 months. She was so scared that she had to get a tube put into her stomach, so mom could tube feed her! She is well now, and I like her.
PooPoo is calico, and not so friendly.
She hisses a lot and scratches Mom sometimes. I think she might have mental problems! I like having them around so I am not lonely when Mom and Daddy Len are not home
