Grin I meant big love for most (not a fan of wasps) animals. I have two cats...for the moment. Then again, we will be getting more when we move. The house we live in right now can't handle much more then it already has. I have had a bird (desperately miss him, in fact), rabbits, dogs, mice, and a turtle. I plan to open a no-kill dog shelter, in fact (once again, I must wait til we move). 20 year old cat! Wow! That's quite an accomplishment! Good for him! And, I do like big animals too, like horses, but at the moment the best I can do on that point go visit them. This is a really great site, and I am on the 'waiting list' for Ravelry. Will definately be your friend when I get there! (Three kids is still a challange, no matter how spread out they are, but I know you love them, I can tell. I wouldn't give up my baby for any thing in the world).
