I’ve always had pets. Ever since I can remember we had a dog and a few cats so it makes sense that in my adulthood, my husband and I have never been without at least one pet.
Our first pet was Jason, a temperamental, fluffy orange tabby who was so constantly miffed that he would jump up and attack us. He calmed down over the years, especially after we introduced two new kittens into his perfect world. But having a few animals of the same type is slightly different than having a few different types of pets.
While it started out with just one cat, we now have 16 pets. Rest assured, we’re not animal hoarders (7 of these guys are goldfish!)
All of our furry children were adopted and/or rescued, and had difficult lives.
Here’s our ‘other children’:
