I grew up in a house filled with pets, and I adore animals. However, Now that I am all grown up with a family of my own, and a job - it sucks up all my time, and I don't have the time to devote to more animals. I have a cat. A solitary, spoiled, Himalayan meatball named Whisper. We named her Whisper because she was so quiet as a kitten, and has remained so until recently. She is becoming more vocal in her old age. I love her like crazy.

Well, I love all animals, but at the moment only have two dogs. A pug and a shih tzu. Both totally different personalities.
I used to have cats, and I was a big lizard person once with an iguana, a skink and anols.

What do you have, or why not?

I love lizards, I'd love to get one, but not sure my cats would agree! Same with dogs :)

I have three cats right now and that's plenty for an apartment. My first boy is a big ginger named Cornelius (3 years old). My little girl is grey with a ginger belly patch and half moustache named Bonnie-Belle (7 months).

We also recently unexpectedly adopted a third as a companion for Bonnie to give Cornelius a break from her constant play demands. He's a white Birman cat (9 months) and our only purebred. He was given from a pet store to the rescue as he has grade one luxating patella so nobody wanted him. We named him Archibald, Archie for short.

In the last few weeks Archie has basically cemented the entire household, Bonnie and Cornelius are actually getting along better. All of my cats are super sweet and affectionate, but Cornelius is lazy and loves tummy rubs, Bonnie is super hyper and playful and gives a lot of kisses and Archie is a mix between the two and likes to give lovebites.

Thanks for asking :)

Sounds like you have a wonderful family! Does the patella luxation cause pain? (Sorry for being ignorant, but is that a knee joint thing?)

Thank you :)


Vavavanessa: Grade one is the smallest injury and they said in cats it usually fixes itself. He's not in any pain right now, but if we notice any signs of pain in the future we're going to have to take him in and assess if it's progressed! It's essentially a dislocation of the kneecap. The injury is very severe in dogs, but in cats it's usually not a big problem.

Worst case scenario an expensive operation or amputation. ^_^ He'll be fine.

I love seeing your pets on Instagram! Haha.

I'd love to have a parrot or bird of some kind, but one of my cats has a pretty high prey drive and the other one would probably get bullied :)

Rhodesian's are so beautiful :)
