This is Calliope. If it wasn't mean to say I have a favorite pet, I'd tell you Calliope is my favorite. She doesn't photograph well--she comes out all shadowy with devil eyes--but she is the smartest and bravest. She loves the park when it floods and once swam across the lake just to get to where I was standing. Her favorite food is carrots.
I haven't even mentioned all the cats around here. My dad says it is an infestation, but he feeds them and helps me name them so I know he likes them. This one is Monkey. He's ridiculous. He has a fat brother named Chester.
These are the fat boys.
