Pets Of The Week

It's Friday and though some people go to AREA 51 and act silly, I am here at the keyboard making my first Friday entry called Pets Of The Week. Truth be known, it really should be titled "Pet Owners Of The Week." I mean, my pet, Jimmy, goes out and works every day. I stay home and sleep on the couch. Who belongs to whom? Nevertheless, I've compiled some pictures that you have sent to me this week along with your pets.

My girlfriend, Gabi Lin, who is the owner of Linda in cold and snowy Washington is always on my sidebar along with Luke the Wonder Dog and Zoey.

By far, the funniest picture that I obtained this week was of a cat named Milakoshka (Mila) who's pet is named Jacqueline. I say obtained...., in reality Jimmy sto...., borrowed them from Jacqueline. She is the author of "Siberian Cats, Mishka and Milakoshka - ( A Tail of Two Kitties + 1 )" and this picture, along with many more corresponding pics can be seen at the link below (that is of course after you've finshed reading my post).

One of my favorite pics, albeit a bit grainy, is of Sassy (aka Baby G). Sassy's pet is named Garnett and I have no idea of Garnett's breeding. Sassy's a handsome dog and how she adopted Garnett I'll never know. I was somewhat surprised that Garnett didn't send me a picture of his ass as he is offtimes wont to do. Garnett has shown his ass many times and I'm sure you've never seen a finer ass in all your days. Garnett writes "My Brain is In Pain Again" and can be read at

Here's a picture taken at a nude beach of Garnett's ass in all it's glory. Kinda brings a tear to your eye, don't it? (I don't care what you say, that's funny! Git-R-Done!)

My pal Julie is a very witty and faithful reader of both my journal and Jimmy's Journal as well. Julie is the pet of Zoey, one of my favorite pals. Zoey's a character and I highly recommend stopping by "Julia's New journal" at

Julie underwent surgery yesterday and is recovering at home. I'm now quite sure how she'll post using one hand but if I know Julie, she probably let Zoey do most of the typing and then she'll edit the work (Zoey's not in to spelling).

Today is my pal Tania's birthday (Happy Birthday Tania!) and she's got a cute kitty whose name escapes me (I think it's Chrissy). Nevertheless, since it's her birthday, here's a picture of Tania's owner.

I have to mention my pal Chico today. Chico's a Siberian Husky and he's really a fun dog (as dogs go). I really don't think Chico's really from Siberia but Jimmy says that he's a Caucasian-American and I know for a fact the he has never even been to Caucasia. So much for the hyphenated citizens!

My sentimental favorite of today's pics was sent to me by Regina who is the pet of Coatie. I normally rely on my exceptional wit to enhance my journal posts, but the email I received from Regina far exceeds what I could have written in it's stead. Here's Regina's note:

This is my 7 year old female cat, Coatie, who is part Russian Blue and part traveling salesman. she is a foundling, found when she was around 3 months old. I am her human, and my name is Regina. We both reside in the wonderful city of McDonough in the more wonderful southern state of Georgia. During the winter months, she sleeps on a heating pad while i hide under loads of cover in an unheated room. She is the princess of all princesses.

Regina says Coatie is yawning in this pic, but being a cat myself (and a handsome one at that) I believe Coatie is just preparing for his morning meows which sends human pets scurrying around the house looking for food and other items that might please us. Please stop by and visit Coatie and Regina who pens the journal "A Page Unturned" You can visit her by clicking the link below.

I must mention brother Kirt who sent me this picture. Although I don't know his owner's name, I think brother Kirt may have taken this picture after his owner had sniffed some catnip as he is either exposing his best side or is coming out of a coma. Truth be told, I always thought that crazy cat was on drugs!

The Cats Meow And Puppy Dog Tales:

Yeah, I know, this concept is taken from Jimmy's Journal but who in the hell do you think writes Jimmy's Journal? Me, Shithead, that's who! Jimmy's just a pawn in my overall plan to take over the house.

A man goes into a pet shop and tells the owner that he wants to buy a pet that can do everything. The shop owner suggests a faithful dog. The man replies, "Come on, a dog?" The owner says, "How about a cat?" The man replies, "No way! A cat certainly can't do everything. I want a pet that can do everything!"

The shop owner thinks for a minute, then says, "I've got it! A centipede!" The man says, "A centipede? I can't imagine a centipede doing everything, but okay... I'll try a centipede." He gets the centipede home and says to the centipede, "Clean the kitchen." Thirty minutes later, he walks into the kitchen and... it's immaculate! All the dishes and silverware have been washed, dried, and put away the counter-tops cleaned the appliances sparkling the floor waxed. He's absolutely amazed!

He says to the centipede, "Go clean the living room." Twenty minutes later, he walks into the living room. The carpet has been vacuumed the furniture cleaned and dusted the pillows on the sofa plumped, plants watered. The man thinks to himself, "This is the most amazing thing I've ever seen. This really is a pet that can do everything!"

Next he says to the centipede, "Run down to the corner and get me a newspaper." The centipede walks out the door. 10 minutes later... no centipede. 20 minutes later... no centipede. By this point the man is wondering what's going on. The centipede should have been back in a couple of minutes. 45 minutes later... still no centipede! He can't imagine what could have happened. Did the centipede run away? Did it get run over by a car? Where is that centipede?

So he goes to the front door, opens it... and there's the centipede sitting right outside. The man says, "Hey!!! I sent you down to the corner store 45 minutes ago to get me a newspaper. What's the matter?!" The centipede says, "I'm goin'! I'm goin'! I'm just puttin' on my shoes!"

A teacher is explaining biology to her 4th grade students. The teacher says, "Human beings are the only animals that stutter." A little girl raises her hand. "I had a kitty-cat who stuttered." The teacher, knowing how precious some of these stories could become, asked the girl to describe the incident. The little girl said, "Well, I was in the back yard with my kitty and the Rottweiler that lives next door got a running start and before we knew it, he jumped over the fence into our yard!"

The teacher said, "That must've been scary." The little girl said,'"It sure was! My kitty raised his back, went 'Fffff, Fffff, Fffff'...and before he could say 'F*ck', the Rottweiler ate him!"

That's the "Pets Of The Week" edition of Possum's Journal. I hope you enjoyed it. This feature will be posted every Friday so send me your pictures, along with names and relevant info, to Possum, in care of and I'll see that your picture makes the headlines.

Have a great weekend and......

Linda's World said...

My dearest Possum, it's me Gabi in cold & windy Washington. My pet Linda finally brought some wood in this afternoon and has a nice fire going in the wood stove tonight. I'll be glad when Bob gets back from California because he's better about having a fire than Linda is. The only thing I don't like about him is he calls me weird names like Bonzo. Geesh! I love your new Blog theme and look forward to reading each new entry. Meows.......Gabi Lin

Joann said...

Possum, you crack me up, just like your pet, Jimmy, does. That stuttering cat, and the fact that Jimmy's never been to Caucasia had me rolling on the floor!!!!

Hey, I'm deprived of a pet, but I let my friend's pets borrow me sometimes to go for walks... I'll send you pics of them!!

Love all the photo's and stories that go with them. I especially loved the joke at the end. Yes, I am still typing badly with one hand. Soon, soon I will be 2 handed again. Probably won't help my typing though.
