Mr Darcy

Here is Chica defending her territory - our bed. What is she defending it from you might ask? Well, it is a whom actually and several of them. She feels that NO cat should come near her night time domain. I wish I had a picture of the toothy snarl she gives the cats if they come within a foot of the bed. Of course when she actually goes to sleep she crawls down under the covers and pays no attention. Sometimes we wake up with two or three cats on the bed - and her oblivious down there by my feet! Nothing disturbs her beauty sleep! Look at those buggy little chihuahua eyes - she needs all the beauty rest she can get!! :)
Since you met Squeak the other day, it is only fair to introduce you to Mr Darcy. Squeak belongs to Jake, and Mr Darcy belongs to Reagan, and yes, he is named after Mr Darcy in Pride and Prejudice. Now, Milo is Elizabeth's cat and he looks exactly like Mr Darcy, only a slightly darker orange. They are brothers and sometimes if the room is not well lit, I have trouble telling which one is which. Not the kids though, they always know - and do NOT let me hear the end of it when I confuse the two. "Oh my gosh! Can't you tell Milo is darker?!" Well, honestly, I can't at times!
