It’s cat appreciation day for my two favorite cats! 😘😘
I love animals! Always have, always will. I would spend hours watching animal planet. As a child I loved watching the crocodile hunter, it was a really good series. RIP Steve 😢. I just had this strong fascination with how these creatures we can’t communicate with just interacted among themselves. I wanted to become a veterinarian but that dream was short lived on a trip to the zoo. I was about 6 or 7 the first time I remember going to to the zoo. And I was having a blast until I got to the snake exhibition. Looking at the snake behind their nice glass barrier and I was feeling pretty confident about these creatures. That’s until I saw the lady holding one out in the open and recommended I held it.
(*side note* my brother and I did this dumb thing to dare each other to do stuff we didn’t wanna do and I didn’t want to seem like a punk ass.)
So of course I held the snake and went into a full on panic attack mode! There was just something about the skin! Idk since that day I haven’t been able to get past that nightmare so I squashed my dream of becoming a vet!
I have had many pets over the years. I’ve had dogs (lucky and fluffy), birds (a parrot and a lot of marble doves), gerbil (RIP pebbles), baby goat, pet fish( RIP Henry and Louie, I had them with my roommate in college) and cats. I loved all my pets but there was something about cats that I just related with. I don’t know if it’s the I don’t give a fuck attitude or how majestic they tend to be. They are super high maintenance animals that weirdly reflect my personality lol.
Last Christmas I got Dustin! He’s my little furball! And he gives the most trouble and he’s soo territorial.
So I wanna know about your pets! It doesn’t have to be cats, I just want to interact with more animal lovers 😊😊
