Although ZOOLATRY is devoted to our cats, Maggy and Zoey, with proper attention given (we hope) to all our cat-n-dog friends... zoolatry is defined as the worship of animals... so today we choose to recognize a
few of our other animal friends ~

Quincy is one handsome creature living at Pumpkin's World.
Sweet Samuel lives with Willie at the Phin, Feather & Furr Gang.

The little penguins of Sea World enjoy snow-filled days all year long, here with my beautiful daughter in law Giovanna, and my granddaughter Isabel. And my grandchildren Isabel and Ethan at play with their little guinea pigs,
Milky Way and Oreo.

Top left & bottom right: a long time friend Susan, with just two from her very own animal kingdom. Shown here, Benji, her Nubian goat and Smokey, her pot-belly pig... who all live happily together with 3 dogs, 2 cats, 3 other goats (oh, and her husband). Top right: Great Grandma Helen, with granddaughter Isabel and a magnificent Florida panther. Bottom left: The love of my life, the Zoolatry Dad... and he had better not put that Florida gator, baby or not... in my Christmas stocking! Original photos of Susan with thanks to Dave Schlenker.
