Jackson Beal


“This is my beloved, somewhat shy, and slightly neurotic cat Tumbleweed! She was rescued from a shelter in New York City after the roof fell in during the summer storms of 2007. She is making her way with me up and down the east coast having lived in New York City, Boston, and Washington, DC. This photo is from soon after our move to DC last summer (she stole my hair elastic). She is described by many friends as having owl like qualities especially at night her eyes are huge!”


“This is my Blue-Fronted Amazon, Zoe.”

Lots more great entries after the jump.



“This is Franklin the Portguese Water Dog. He is often mistaken for Bo Obama.”

CoCo Bella

“CoCo survived the cold DC winter with her favorite blanket and a nice bowl full of kibble. She’s definitely more a summer kind of girl.”


“This is Natasha, she fits perfectly in the windowsill and loves to lounge around there.”

Bella and Franklin
