    My dogs and cats are my babies.

    I may never have human children, and don't necessarily want them. My dogs and cats will always love me, and never use me, be happy to see me, and not care what I look like, or wear.

    Pets have such cute and amazing personalities.

    Like, my youngest kitty is named Oscar, and he's just so energetic and weird and cute XD he's always running around frantically for no reason. Today I saw him chasing his tail crazily 3 times. He goes crazy when playing with his toys. He's a meower and meows quite a lot. He...

    I bought treats for my gerbils the other day,

    and I finally gave them some, and they completely ignored it. Like. They're more fascinated with the food that they eat every day, than they are with the treats... I got them yogurt treats. They look like chocolate kisses but they're yellow in color and it's yogurt, and it even...

    Most people think that a pet is just an animal

    that enters your home for entertainment but they are so much more than that ! The minute they step foot into your life they do everything in their power to get your acceptance and love. They will do everything they can for you without ever asking for anything in return. They are...

    Okay, one of my gerbils (her name is poppy) is

    apparently either really stubborn, or really picky. she chewed up basically her entire spinning wheel. even though I bought something for them to chew on. So, I take the destroyed wheel out, and buy a metal one so they can't chew it. AND, I buy 2 more kinds of chewy things for...

    I have a really chubby goldfish.

    This may seem weird to people who are not weird, but I consider him family! He has a 25 gallon tank on an unused desk by the kitchen table. He always comes to the edge of the tank and begs for food like a dog would. Now this isn't any goldfish, he's huge! If you have ever seen a...

    My dog is like my best friend.

    He makes me happy every time I see him. I know they don't talk back but I do talk to him sometimes if I have no one else to talk to. Pets are just wonderful. I don't see how anyone can't consider them as family.

    Pets For Vets.

    Only unconditional love can effectively make the process of healing possible.Sadlyย for those with no family or close friends,unconditional love is hard to come by. The presence and love of an animal is a wonderful gift.And can often mean the difference between life and death.ย
