I have a little dog who’s my world he’s my best friend . He gets me threw my darkest days and my good days . I wish I was well again and able to take him for walks and trips to the beach on a good day I can take him for a 5 min walk but usually I just let him out in the garden as I’m not well enough to go outside most days I miss taking him on Long walks and going on adventures . He loves his food and I like spoil him he makes me happy tell me about your pets x

    I love the bones and all other bits of my little dog.
    When I brought him home I expected him to be a bit nervous and maybe missing his mum, but he ran out of his carrier with a big daft doggy smile on his face and ran around licking everyone and wagging his tail.
    He was very fond of my now sadly deceased ragdoll cat and would take every opportunity to try and hump her, she would have none of it...and let him know in no uncertain terms she wasn't that type of cat.
    We bought him his own humpy toys, who would all start out with a different name but all end up being called crusty...for obvious reasons lol ...I love that he may think I look and smell like something he's just dug up but he never judges and loves me anyway....

    I have three cats who are my little mates - Frank, Trinity and Lavender.  All from cat rescue centres and each with their own unique personality.  

    Frank is a grumpy old man (14 years old) who demands the finest food.  Trinity (5 years old) is a little scaredy cat who will only interact with you on her terms  :D  While, Lavender (2 years old) is like a little marshmallow flump who will lay on her back with her belly exposed for you to tickle her! 

    I can't imagine my home without my lovely pets  <3

    I have a Siamese male cat named Alfie.He's white with blue eyes so he's rare.  He's 7 and spoilt rotten but he's my baby! I don't let him out unless i'm in the garden watching him. He sleeps next to me on my bed at night. Actually, if he doesn't come to bed i'll get up and go and find him lol. Can't sleep without my boy.

    He's scared of everything, even his tail. lol. Doesn't like my grandson either and always goes upstairs when he's here. He drinks from a glass, yes a glass lol. He won't drink his water if it was in a dish, very spoilt boy and definitely the boss. <3<3

    Have you heard the saying that cats don’t have owners, they have staff :D

    Similar to Poppy our dog will ignore his bowl of dog food and pester us for human food when we are eating! :#

    I try to tell people that if you leave him long enough he will eat his dog food but the puppy eyes work on my family members so the dog food ends up going in the bin...!

    I have a very unique cat! I can leave any sort of meat out in the kitchen, raw or cooked and he wouldn't touch it. Although it would be a different story if it was tuna or prawns lol.
