I just got back from getting my oldest son a pet of his very own. We had a list of what we'd be willing to get him based on what we thought he could care for and he chose the Guinea Pig.

So I started looking on craigslist for a cage in hopes of finding one that was much cheaper than from the store. I actually wound up finding a guinea pig plus cage and food/hay. We went and brought him home with us today.

His name was Wilfred and my 7 1/2 year old has now named him Leonardo and we'll call him Leo for short haha.

Here is Leo! Photo by iny0urhonor • Instagram


On top of a guinea pig now, we have 2 dogs (chocolate lab and shih-tzu) as well as 4 cats. We also will be getting a Quaker bird in the near future (our niece raises them).

We're crazy, yup. But we love our pets!

Congrats on the new pet We technically have 3 cats but a stray showed up here and had a couple of babies under our back deck, and we have a stray tom cat who comes up every night to eat so we now have 7 cats!! I love cats and it drives my hubby to distraction because I never want to get rid of them.

We got our spoiled rotten little princess (Callie) fixed before she could have any kittens. The stray cat is solid black and I have always loved black cats!!! We had a black tom named Sammy (who we also had fixed) but he went missing last May. I was very upset about that so I am happy to have a black kitty again but I don't know if I can talk my DH into getting her fixed or not. I hope that I can because we don't need any more kittens (although I do love them!).

Our youngest cat is a solid black cat, we named her Lux. We have an orange tabby named pumpkin but we call him kiki, he's 10. Another tiger tabby who is Jinx, he's 9. We had one run away on us that was named Darwin. Then we have Itty Bitty Kitty, Bitty for short . Our Dogs are Gannon and Grimm.

Kitten was one of the animals we had on the list for him, I for sure thought he'd want the kitten!

Aww, he's cute. We have three male cats. Socks is two and Fizzle and Lazy are almost a year old.

Socks:



Fizzle:



Lazy:



I tell my DH that between him, our DS, and the boy cats we need a baby girl so I'm not totally outnumbered.

So cute! Socks reminds me of my cat growing up, Sabrina. Fizzle is the same look of our cat Pumpkin and Lazy looks like our Lux

Back in 2003 we had a zoo, too. We had 3 cats, 15 tropical fish and their babies, 4 goldfish, a beta, 3 corn snakes, a tree frog, a toad and a crayfish. Not too mention the countless crickets to feed both the frog and toad.
