Cat person, if you're willing to relocate and sleep on the floor (we have almost NO furniture) I would gladly let you be our house-elf. lol

:lol:, I was hoping you would answer. If I could, I would :kitty . However, in all seriousness, could you post more pics of your cats (domestic and exotic)? I would LOVE to see all your cats :mrgreen: . Is the lack of furniture, due to the cats?

If, I could really be a house elf, your home, would be my dream abode.

My extinct animals are:
Tasmanian Tiger/Tasmanian Wolf/Thylacine
Image

Image

Unfortunately, dead ones are the only colored pictures of them and it doesn't do them justice,but like alot of animals, I found somehow being dead and taxidermed makes an animal that was cute in life look really ugly as seen from the example of the adorable live thylacine in the black and white photo above compared with this...thing:
Image

Although, oldly, these tamidermed specimen looks much cuter than the above though not anywhere never as cute as the live animal:
Image

Mesonyx
Image
