    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...

    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...

    Love Both

    I love both cats and dogs and I think the cat-person vs dog-person thing must come to an end!! I have two cats and one dog. If you like animals, it sounds stupid to me that you could love your dog and hate your friend's cat. Enough with this nonsense already! :) To be fair to so...

    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.

    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.
