Homer, with wife Linda and the couple's three cats (L-R: Maxx, Paco, and Flopsy- Batman not pictured.)
Paco, the black and white fluffball in the middle is famous as the first cat to meow in space and the only real character in Back To The Moon, where he gets to fly as an experiment on the shuttle Columbia. Paco likes zero-g!
One of the many racoons Homer and Linda enjoy feeding.
