Again this year I want to take a moment to thank you as most of you know by now I am not on Facebook and unable to reach you through that channel, for the beautiful cards I am receiving at home. They warm our hearts and brighten up our days to see them.

Thank you again and enjoy what is left of the holiday season.

Wishing you the best for 2018!

I know...beautiful bathroom. I'm not a big fan of the interior colour but the price is also too high for my budget. I don't want to put all my eggs in such trailer because it looses too much value too quickly and that is extra money I will probably need when I get much older. But it is a dream trailer for me. Just for the bath. Smile

We still have about 3 years to go to retirement so we have time to find new models and get a luck on a barely-new one too. Time will tell which road we'll take once retirement hits us.

And by retirement, I don't expect to have N&T (they're already 15) but Kooza still should be with us at 10YO and an only dog, and our 2 cats who will still be young.

Oh boy!  Does that mean you're coming to northern Minnesota to buy one?!?  Wink  Tongue  That one is a beauty!  I like the way the bathroom is not far from the main door.  Many times when we've been on the road with ours and wanted to use the bathroom, you had to move the slide out in order to get by it and into the bathroom.  But that soaker!  Plus a shower!  That's bigger than our bathroom in the house.  I think it would be pretty easy to live in that 5th wheel. Pleased

I know the 5th wheels are a bit easier to back into camp spots that with the class A's.  At some of the dog shows I've been at, backing our first 5th wheel was easy even in the tight spots.  But the second one was a bit harder.  Same length too but for some reason, the one was easier to maneuver.  The first one was better set up for cold weather too.  I could sure see all your pets loving that 5th wheel!

With our Class A we do have our CR-V in tow so that is not a problem to move around once parked. And cheaper on riding this than a big pick up truck. At least for Canada.

I did look the links but it is certainly not the type of 5th wheel I'd get for retirement if we are going to stay full-time or almost. Smile

This one has a full bathtub... I like that being a bubble bath person. hihi

The price though yikes!

So we're having to decide on another class A but more roomy or 5th wheel... I want the 5th and hubby is a finished Class A type of guy. hihi

I really like having the 5th wheel camper.  At least you can use the truck for running around once you're parked.  My only problem was it's so high up.  The last one we had fold down steps to get in but when you were coming back out, especially with bifocal glasses, we were both missing the last step because it was only a couple of inches off the pavement and blended in.  So we ended up taking a 'header' out of the camper a few times and that's when I said "No more".  We bought the fish house camper, a lot smaller than we were used to, but with the axle folding the whole trailer down to the ground, it worked great.  Now they have some really fancy ones that are 5th wheel too.  Like this one: 
Or the one on this video:
I would imagine you could have one ordered without the fish house holes in the floor, but these campers are usually better insulated than regular 5th wheels and they have the holding tanks where you don't have to worry about them freezing up.

ah.... we're already looking into a nice big 5th wheel at retirement. If we're going to stay in there for a long period (most winter period) plus part of the summer, I need space. Lots of it. Smile

Yes, female cats can get really loud with their squalling when they're in heat.  But having kittens would be fun.  Don't know if it would be less work than puppies but I would think so.  Then it would be time to get an even bigger motorhome to take them along on trips! Wink

It was a joy playing with all those cats. Reminded me when I had a chance to play with the pups at Rebecca...remember that video ... and all those puppies you took to an eskie meet. that was pure joy. I could do this all day and not even care about picking up poop and cleaning sheets. I need to find a rich sugar daddy to have the money to do only this and get a sitter when I want to go out some. hihi

Issue he has with Birman in Montreal is that the breed is not common. At least for ethical breeders. So he ends up showing alone too often. He has to get out of province/country to get major points and with 2 young kids now, he said it makes things so hard. Wish I had the time to do breeding with cats. No males though. hahaha Maybe do a partnership with him. I go to shows and I get to keep the females - but then you have the heat seasons that are not too much fun either. haha

Something I might look into when retiring in a few years. I would prefer cat breeding program over dogs... they don't need to be walked, taken out as often. I can build the cat a nice outdoor run, playground with screens all around. Wouldn't that be a fun project! Not sure hubby would like to hear this project but what woman wants...woman gets. hihi

Wow!  Those cat breeds sound great with little to no shedding or matting!  If that feature could only be bred into Eskies! Big Grin

Yes, male intact cats are no fun.  Many years ago we took in a stray cat, intact male.  I swear he marked every place in the house he could, both upstairs and downstairs in a matter of minutes.  I had called animal control to come and get him but when he did that, I chucked him back out the door and told animal control they would have to find him!  Evil  Thank goodness, our lab mix, Pepper, was good enough to sniff out each spot so I could get them cleaned up, but the smell was harder to get rid of.  Back then, there weren't a lot of cleaning products for pets like there is now.  But learned a valuable lesson to never take in a stray male again!

That's great the breeder is good with socializing the kittens.  Must have been fun playing with all of them.  I can understand him showing his cats, just like we showed dogs, but to breed for what the judges want is something I didn't do.  I bred for what I wanted to see in my dogs which was mainly good health.  And of course, the ability to do some sledding, but mostly I wanted to have those fun things that each one of the dogs I kept would do.  Like Rewind crawling under the cover of the bed with just his back legs sticking straight out and his tail wagging.  Or Angel batting her eyes and smiling when she wanted something.  Or when Dusty would climb in a laundry basket of clean clothes because they were warm and she wanted to dig for toys that went through the wash.  Seems like each one that a certain thing they would do to make me laugh.  So if Sparky can do that for you, that's great!

Thank you.

Sandy was not used to being brushed. Got her from a breeder who said they barely need brushing. True so far. She's a ragdoll. Gorgeous coat and she sheds very little and does not mat.

We met Sparky yesterday. He is soooo small. Forgot how kittens are small since our last kitten was Shadow and it was so long ago. Birmans do shed a bit more (if it is like the 2 I had before) but they don't mat. Sparky was sleeping when we got there. But it did not take long for the 2 litters (they are a few days apart) to play.

All of his cats (older and kittens) are so friendly. They come to you, all of them. I was able to pet them all, saw both parents (I saw his dad a few weeks ago at a cat show and he had one first place). Awesome. Just a few more points before being GCh. Yeah Breeder regrets selling me Sparky as he says he is turning way cuter than originally thought. His mittens are awesome. Almost straight. It's just that for conformation, his ears are a bit too far apart. To me they are perfect but you know how a small detail makes a different to a judge. I told him I would take him, not get him fixed and when he wanted to show him, I'd take him back to him and deal with it. hihi He said I would not like to have pee all over the house. Males are not fun. haha

Eskies require way more grooming than those 2 cats will.

For Sparky the kitten, I will be able to get him used to teeth brushing, grooming, etc. Sandy was 3YO when I adopted her so she is not used to anything. I have to work from scratch but even if she growls/miaows...I'm the boss. Naills will get trimmed whether you like it or now sweety! But she is such a good cat. We are trying to teach her to go outside. She will probably never be like Shadow was. He was a cat of a lifetime and we miss him soooo much. Him and Katia. They were huge pieces of our lives. But it is life and we are moving forward, with those 2 new cats that we will learn to love and cherish, just like we did for anyone who crossed our paths.

I'll check for Pbucket but last I read, you can add in pictures but not share without paying a huge membership.

Keep posting pictures too. Smile
