The Rest of the Kerstone Family
Crush is a young Ball Python that I got in October 2005. She is a real sweetheart and quite a stunning beauty... She has won over the hearts of many "snake haters". :o)
Kismet is a real lover! I rescued her in October 2006 after moving to Denver. She loves to get attention and be brushed, and she frequently attempts to make the "Great Escape" so we really have to watch it any time a door is open! As sweet as she is with people, she has NO problem putting the dogs in their place!!
Cicada 1 year old - born in early May of 2004. As soon as we brought her home a young, 6-month-old Kande seemed to think that she should take it upon herself to see that the kitten was raised right, groomed several times daily, and carried all around the house in her mouth. Cada is HER kitten! Now she has grown a little too big to be carried around by Kande, but I'm sure Cicada doesn't mind much. Lately we don't see much of her anymore because she has been enjoying the spring and summer weather outdoors.
Kande has now adopted another kitten - Kijana (an African name meaning "youth"). She was born in June 2005. This baby looks like a younger, darker version of Callie (below). Kijana is very sweet and loves to be around someone all of the time.
Kat doesn't hang around the house much - he's not too fond of dogs. However, he's a sweetie when there are no dogs in sight. He can often be found around the neighborhood or in my brother's bedroom, where the dogs don't go.
Terry is about 3 years old. He and Kat probably have second owners somewhere who DON'T have four big dogs running around the house! Terry became my younger brother's cat soon after I brought him home and is often found with Kat in Matt's room. He can be seen above "terrorizing" (hence the name Terry) our cockatiels which have moved to a new home.
This is where all Kerstone puppies are born and raised.
Buster is the senior of the house. Being my first dog it seems like he's been around as long as I can remember! We think he was born sometime around 1991. His hobbies include: sleeping on HIS couch, eating, and barking at the mailman.
In Loving Memory of Buster: 1991(?) - March 25, 2007
Callie (Kande's other favorite kitty) has been around for over 10 years and is a real sweetheart. As sweet and snuggly as she is with us, she's a true hunter out in the yard. Always on the prowl for insects of any sort, birds, and even squirrels. Those squirrels are fighters, but so is Callie. It can be quite exciting when she catches them!
Callie went to the Rainbow Bridge after Thanksgiving 2006. We miss you Callie Marie!
"The Birds" who found a new home.
Kitty who moved on to the Rainbow Bridge too soon.
Tiny who often had health problems. He disappeared one day and hasn't come back.
We are sure he is also at the Rainbow Bridge.
And over the years, more who moved on, moved to new homes, or went to the Rainbow Bridge .... Fluffy the bunny, Wonder the pony, several other cats, many strays that have come and gone, many fish, a few other birds, hermit crabs, fire newts, green anoles, box turtles, and probably some others that I am forgetting.
