Gushing about pets/animals thread

Hi all, so I thought I might start a thread for talking about pets/animals we love because spending time around animals is one of the sure-fire things that make me feel better even when I'm in a very bad state and I think all animals are lovely, even untraditional ones like rats and reptiles.

 

I have two cats, Cookie and Coco. They are old kitties (11 and 10) but they're still very playful and cheeky. I would say that in their old age they might have even become cheekier just because they don't care as much, haha. Cookie loves sleeping in beds and boxes, having a lovely scritch on her cheeks and licking up toothpaste foam (it's super weird, haha). Coco loves to steal food off tables and scratch up couches. He's very round like a malteser. 

 

I also love dogs, especially staffies and kelpies. I love snakes and crows as well.

 

I would love for you all to tell me about your pets and the animals you love Cat Tongue

Always here for a good animal related thread! Smiley Tongue

 

I have two dogs, Nellie and Scout. They're mum and daughter (trust me, having 7 puppies in your house at once sounds fun in theory, is much harder in practise) and Scout and the rest of the litter were born on Valentines Day (while hard, no Valentines present will ever beat it).

I bet 7 puppies can cause a lot of trouble but that still sounds amazing Heart What kind of dogs are they?

I have 3 dogs. One is 11 and the other two are 5 months. Puppies! They are so lovable and playful, but also a pain in the neck!
The pups look up to the older one, but she sometimes gets jealous because she has to share our attention.
They love to run and are super cute!

@Chessca_H my mum's dog is called Nellie too!!! What sorts are yours? My mum has a golden retriever and she's so gorgeous Heart Whenever I'm feeling stressed she always seems to know and will just lean against me or rest her head on my lap, it's seriously a miracle cure!!!

@DirtWitch Nellie is a maltese/cavelier and Scout/the other puppies are maltese/cavelier/shitzu (or, as we charmingly call them snd works better when said out loud, maltishitiliers Smiley Tongue )

@DirtWitch good question! when you see a post you want to high 5 - look for the orange button at the bottom of a post and next to 0 high 5 or 1 high 5 - press the button next to it on the right!

Re: Gushing about pets/animals thread

I have two cats! They are my babies.. I miss them whenever I am away from home.. one of them in particular, always has to be with me wherever I am! If I am upstairs, then I move downstairs, he will follow. At night, they sleep on the bed with my partner and I.. not a lot of room for us but feeling them next to me helps me sleep easier ☺ I love the joys that animals can bring.. it sure is special
