I decided that even though the animals have been previously mentioned, it was time to formally introduce them all and write a little about them. They are all rescued as I personally want try to try to avoid buying from breeders, but of course there is nothing wrong if you do buy from breeders. This is just my personal choice.
First we have the dog and first baby Umbreon. She is a Hungarian Puli and this is her shaved actually. If we let her fur fully grow out she would have long dreadlocks and look like a mop and that is because her coat is perfectly weather resistant as these dogs were bred in Hungary to be sheep herders. She is a very sweet girl who isn’t too happy that our collection of pest has grown as that means a little less attention for her. Of course though she is perfectly nice to them all and she will always be special as she is our first baby, whether you count fur babies or human babies
Next is our currently nine month old American Short Haired kitten Spooky. He is a huge cuddle bug and actually very much enjoys being held and loved on. He is kept as an indoor cat and he is fixed. I have seen some people say they think it’s mean to neuter their cat when actually it is healthy for them. They live longer, happier lives when fixed, and they don’t feel the need to mark and destroy your house.
Now we move onto our more unique pets the fist one being the African Pygmy hedgehog Shaymin. Contrary to popular belief you can hold a hedgehog. Really the worst pain you feel is like getting poked with a needle that doesn’t pierce your skin. Hedgehogs do take time to adjust to human touch and interaction and you do have to play with them at least half an hour everyday. They are also nocturnal so that means you have to wait till night to play with them otherwise they won’t really be into it. Definitely do some research if you are considering getting one as their is a lot you need to know about them.
Finally our newest babies, the rats Tatl, Tael, and Peter Pettigrew. I honestly love all rodents and rats are super cute, smart, and clean contrary to popular belief about them. They love being held and cuddled and they can even learn tricks like dogs and can learn their names. Our babies are about 2 months old and each of them is so different from the other, with Tael being the most playful and Peter being the one who would much rather sleep than do anything.
That is all I have time to write about each of my sweet fur babies. If you would like me to write a post specifically on one of them just let me know and I will be more than happy to do that.
