    But I hate it when they die.

    They live such short lives. I don't know if I can have another pet as the pair of their passing hurts so much.

    I have two cats and two dogs.

    My cats are both female and named Chloe and Cassie. I've had Chloe a long time and I love her blue eyes. My one dog is male. His name is Tyson. The other one is female and I named her Pepper. She is black and white so it made me think of salt and pepper and she's kind of named...

    Goodbye Mamita

    I had to put down my mami this evening. It was so hard. I adopted her 4 years ago. She was 7 years old when she came to live with me. I named her Ivy Siobhan but I call her mami. She was an indoor cat. From day one, mami has had her favourite secret hiding spot. She doesn't...

    Typical Cat

    As I was walking down this road, I thought it would be lovely to see the local Siamese cat that lives in one of those houses. He's not exactly friendly but I think he's cute. I spotted the cat running towards this woman who had just arrived at this house. The cat was miaowing...

    When my parents go on vacation I have to

    animal-sit at their zoo. I bring my puppy with me and leave my kitty at home and check on her daily. I love those animals! My mom has two dogs and three cats. It gets pretty ridiculous.

    I Have Had Two Orange Tabbies In the Past.

    Fleurina sent me an orane tabby cat as a gift.  It made me nostalgic about the two I've had in the past.  The first one was Annie, as in Little Orphan Annie.  A classmate found her in the parking lot when she was tiny.  I took her home to my older...
