Meet my kitties!!
Gizmo, aka Gizzy: 7 years old. Likes to paw at fabric maniacally until he gets himself underneath of it. Paws at doors and cries like a kitten when I’m on the other side. Sleeps with me every night, flopping against my back. Sits in my lap when I read in my pink chair:
I feel like a bad mom for picking favorites, but this little guy is my baby! He’s very special to me! He almost never leaves my side when I’m at home, and I can’t fall asleep until he comes into the room with me (even if I have to cat-nap him!) <3
Luna, aka Lover or Lunatic: 5 years old. Plays fetch like a dog, but only on her terms (because she is of course still a cat), will groom anything near her face when you scratch her in a certain way above her tail.
Razzi, aka Prissy Princess: 6 years old. Thinks she rules the household, only likes to be petted on her terms, VERY talkative!
Oreo (I don’t have a nickname for him, but my boyfriend calls him Cookie Cat): 8 years old. Total attention whore, will swarm anyone that comes in the house with love, is a little slow but we love him anyway.
My favorite pictures of each of them:
It is VERY rare to get them all together like this!
Meet the puppies!
Zenith, aka Z, Z-Bot or Z-Tard: 3 years old, border collie mix. So, SO crazy! She is full of energy and is definitely still a puppy at heart. Is sometimes the bane of my existence, but I love her just the same. She’s like a teenager: Only listens when she wants to. But she does know how to sit, stay (for a very short amount of time), shake, high-5, and speak. She knows how to come, but likes to run circles around mommy sometimes!
Dude, aka DudeSon: 5 years old? Lab mix. He’s technically not mine, but he’s living with me. I took him in when a friend could no longer keep him, but I’m not yet sure if it will be permanent. For now, he’s a foster dog!
Favorite picture of Z:
I’ve had many small pets like hamsters, rats, hermit crabs, and fish. I had a dog named Bear when I was little, but he died from diabetes at a young age. We had a dog named Lady that also died young because she had Parvo. So up until I got my first cat, Snickers, we hadn’t had many real pets. I think the bad luck scared my parents away from getting another.
The first real pet that was actually MINE was Snickers:
Your turn! Make your own post telling everyone about your pets and link up! I encourage you all to participate ;)
Ideally, I want this to become meme style with many other bloggers participating so we can learn more about as many bloggers as possible! I’m sure it will take some time, but I hope you guys will be interested in joining.
