Love & Horses Blog Hop: what pets do you have?

NBOHL from Love & Horses wants to know: Other than your horse, what pets do you have?

Well. I have cats. Two of them, right now. Probably so many more eventually lol. 



I adopted Martini this past spring. He's 2, and was more or less homeless before bouncing around between a few shelters and foster homes. He's a good boy - very bold and likes company, but a tad rough around the edges. 




He loves to play - but plays kinda rough. It was clear that he needed a friend of his own to occupy him (my ankles needed a break!!). 


'plz to have real friend!' - martini



Neighbors found OG as a 7 month old stray and posted pics of him online. I was immediately taken, and brought him home a few days later. My primary concern was that he'd be big enough and have the right personality for Martini - who we've already established is a bit of a bruiser. 




Because it turns out that OG is kind of a huge cuddle bug. 





I shouldn't have worried tho. They hit it off immediately, and have been pretty much inseparable ever since. Yay for cute kitty friends!

  7. Aw they are adorable!
    I have never had a cat, but really want to get a dog when I move into my place some time next year. I don't want it to be lonely during the day, nor could i have two dogs in an apartment - i don't think that would be fair although I will be on the ground floor with a large terrace (and walking distance to the barn & woods yay).
    I have been toying with the idea of getting future dog a kitty playmate all going well with future plans!
    Would this be a crazy idea seeing as I've never owned either as pets before?!
