When I was a little girl, we had a Great Pyrenees– a huge white polar bear of a dog. His name was Andy.  He was bigger then me. He was almost as big as my father when he stood on his hind legs.  And he mostly lived in a cage- a nice cage, but a […]


  • Anonymous - Thank you. Just…thank you.

  • Cary - You understand me! You REALLY understand me. That is a great feeling.ReplyCancel

  • Natalie DeYoung - I am a sucker for special needs animals. That is why I kept my husband’s pit bull – talk about needing a LOT of training!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - OMG I can ONLY imagine! Those dogs are STRONG! We have a 3-legged girl kitty and once had a dog that I think was mentally retarded- or is that ALL dogs? HahahaaaaReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - Thank you, Cheryl!

    I think when we grow up with animals, there’ll always be one that makes a deeper impression on us than others. Mine was a daschund- cocker spaniel mix named Blackie. Sounds like Andy was yours!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Your so welcome William. My pleasure. We also had a cat named Chester Field King that was a hoot! They’re ALL my favorites! Love the animals I do πŸ™‚ReplyCancel

  • Papa Bear - fantastic to see others who adopt four legged family members. The joy they can bring to your family is awesome.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - It really is. They never really want anything from you but a little love and attention and they give such love in return. I wish more PEOPLE were like that! So happy to see you here Papa Bear!ReplyCancel

  • Haralee - Pets, who owns whom? Our hearts are connected.ReplyCancel

  • Sue - Love our cat Simba and little dog Anya. I could easily do a animal blog, but not as well as your featured bloggers that I think are fabulous.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - They are fabulous aren’t they, and WE could not do what you do with your subject half as well. It all evens out!ReplyCancel

The Cat in the House    loved the rat. He brought them home to play. Around they went    all night long And all throughout the day. Gifts they were.    That’s what he said. Aren’t you proud of me? No, I’m not    I need my sleep. Please just let them be… Seriously Willie! […]


If you read this blog, then you know all about our newest addition to the family- little Peggy Malone, our wee Irish lass of a cat with three legs.You also know that our middle grey fuzzy-butt, Earl, is a feline Adonis- revered my his peers and adored by the ladies (He and Peggy are both altered. […]


  • afterthekidsleave.com - This is adorable! They do sound like a married couple…maybe still in the honeymoon phase?ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Yes- they’re still Honeymooners, but in cat years that means only a few more months before they should start throwing pots-n-pans at each other. Then agin, there is the 9 Lives thing….

  • William Kendall - They’re head over heels.ReplyCancel

  • A Pleasant House - It is so hysterical to watch! I’ve never seen anything like it!ReplyCancel

  • Sue - Really? You’re so lucky. Mostly I hear of cats fighting with each other with fur flying. I just love it when cats “trill.”ReplyCancel

  • A Pleasant House - It really is a beautiful sound, isn’t it. And they each trill differently so it makes it more interesting.ReplyCancel

  • Lisa Newlin - Aw, this is sweet! I love animals and it looks like you have two good ones, even if they seem to want to kill each other sometimes. πŸ˜‰ReplyCancel

  • Katia - Nothing says love like bringing you insects! πŸ™‚ What an adorable post and what a desirable outcome. None of the animals we ever raised together got along so well!ReplyCancel

  • Kristi Campbell - Aww! How awesomely adorable! I wonder how many years (months) it’ll take for them to grow weary of one another’s annoying habbits? Will Peggy Malone say to Earl “ANOTHER Lizzard? Sheesh, Earl. It’s like you don’t even know me.” I’ll be waiting for updates! Fun post!ReplyCancel

  • Petra - What beauties, both of them! And that look in the picture? Just seems to confirm so perfectly what you explained, I love it!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Hello my friend! So glad to see you! They are just adorable. Now, I must skip over and read your updates!ReplyCancel

  • Cary - So precious! How do I get MY cats to behave this way towards each other?ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Hi Cary!
      I don’t know. We didn’t do a thing. Must be TRUE love! As I’m writing she is teasing him with her charms- and he’s mesmerized…..Must be TRUE love! Sorta reminds me of me and the hubby (right).ReplyCancel

         Alls aflutter ‘tween ar wee lass and er’ Da.     E’ freets and stews ore the brite eyes of the gal.     A wonderin er’ abouts.     Ta is a sweet one that covers the soul with a bit of love     From a bitenn of a chait.     For the […]


  • House Crazy Sarah - what a sweet girl!ReplyCancel

  • Michelle Liew - Peggy is a sweetie!!! Love the colors!ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Her colors remind me of a Reeses Peanut Butter cup or Peanut Brittle! I just want to scoop her up and take a bite!ReplyCancel

  • shelly - Sweet kitty.

    Hugs and chocolate,

  • Sue - We should dub her Peggy Reeses. The position she is sleeping in is different for a cat.ReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - Hahaha… I’m really giggling! Peggy Reeses- I like it! As for how she sleeps- that damn amputation dictates the position I think. SHE’S SOOOO CUTE!!!ReplyCancel

  • Rich Rumple - Her colors merge, yet separate shine
    Her smile so coy, yet dreams so divine
    Her life now good, yet misses legs two by two
    Her love now shared, yet given only to you.

    Yeah, I’m a softie for cats. I don’t think you were around when mine were writing the blog from time to time. I think I’d name her OZ, as she really is a cat of a different color. lolReplyCancel

    • A Pleasant House - How lovely Richard! Thank you for the poem and I love your suggestion of Oz, however, she actually ‘comes’ for Peggy, so that’s done. She is beautiful isn’t she.ReplyCancel

  • William Kendall - Awww, Peggy….ReplyCancel

     I promised to give all of you a weekly update on our little Peggy as she recuperates from her hind-leg amputation, so here it is- whether you like it or not, but, before you read further, or look at the photo’s, I must WARN  you it is  NOT FOR THE FAINT OF HEART. […]


  • Piper George - Oh no. Poor little lady. How is she doing now?ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Hi Piper, She’s doing much better. The first few days were rough on her (and me)! But she’s mending well with no inflammation and off the pain med’s! So we’re hoping for the best!ReplyCancel

  • Roshni - OMG! You were right about it not being for the faint at heart…or for that matter for the recent lunch-eater! πŸ˜€ReplyCancel

    • Cheryl Nicholl - Thanks for stopping by William. She is just sooo sweet! Isn’t that photo awful!! Awfully fun to post!ReplyCancel

  • Sue - Oh yes, my husband is like that too. Not much good in the take care of sick ones department, that is for sure, so I know what you mean. Poor Peggy. It doesn’t look as bad as I expected, but you have your hands full Mommy. God Bless You.ReplyCancel
