Since pets are included, here's one from our collection of cats. Yet another rescue. The story is the mama was going in to be spayed but the vet determined she was preggers. The vet convinced the owner to skip the spay at that time to save the kittens; the owner decided it was easier just to turn the cat over to the vet. Vet calls my wife and now we are fostering a pregnant cat. I named her Georgia as she looked a lot like another family cat, George. Now, since we were helping the vet out by fostering, the she cut us a break on costs and also did an ultrasound just to see how many kittens we were expecting. Looks like two. OK, again, my job to name the cats, so the kittens were dubbed Peaches and Peanut. Why those names? Because that's what comes out of Georgia! :-P  :p :lol: Of course the ultrasound was not very accurate as we got four kittens (the others were named Bryce and Sedona). This is their first family portrait. SX10 IS.
