i must be clucky, i keep getting pets!
i have 2 cats, squib and diego..
squib is 6 and a gorgeous tabby and he's such a cool cat. he goes on walks with us like a dog and eats food like a dog too. he likes chili, chips, cantelope, rice, i mean everything!
squib was with me when i was super sick with a severe flare a few years ago. he followed me everywhere, even to the toilet and hung out in the stench! he likes to drink out of the faucet/tap in the bathroom sink. he also hung out on the bed with me all the time.
diego is 1.5 and he is black with silver stripes underneath. they are getting harder to see as he gets older.
diego is a major cuddle-puss! he loves to be loved.
we just got a puppy a few weeks ago. her name is lucy. she is 14 weeks now and grows every 6 hours i swear! it takes longer for paint to dry! we got her from the AWL (animal welfare league - equivalent to humane society in the U.S.). they told us she was a staffy X kelpie X cattle dog. so she would be small --> medium sized. perfect as we live in a townhouse and we can't have a big dog.
well... we went to vet a week or so ago and they took one look at her and said nuh-uh.. no way... she is definitely german shepard X with staffy or something else. ok.. now its time to go find a house to buy.. we might get kicked out cuz she is gonna be HUGE! she is so freakin cute tho. thank god cuz she is super naughty. but smart at the same time. and she poops almost as much as me! LOL!
and we have a fish tank too! a big one.. 3 feet by 1.5 feet
i luv my babies! they are so entertaining too, which is good when ur stuck at home, stuck on the can, or stuck in bed!
