My Furbabies

A big part of my life, outside of being a newlywed, is my pets. I’ve had animals around my whole life and couldn’t imagine it any other way. My crew right now includes a dog named Brick and two cats, Captain and Little Girl. They sure do keep my life interesting. Brick and Little Girl are usually in some kind of mischief, sometimes together, while Captain is an old soul and prefers to spend his time napping. Playing for him involves casually and slowly reaching out his paw to a nearby toy. That’s it. No batting, no chasing, just holding. That takes a lot of energy though, so after that strenuous workout, he has to nap again.

I will admit it. I play favorites. Captain is my golden child. To me, he can do no wrong. He’s a good cuddler and sleeps next to me all night long. Brick is next, and he is just so darn cute. Even though he’s part Boxer, he missed getting the Boxer personality, and he’s a pretty chill dude. That is when he’s not eating something he’s not supposed to (past incidents include getting into a loaf of zucchini bread, a tub of cookies, bird seed, and even an unopened can of pumpkin filling. Yes, he bit right through the aluminum. Don’t worry, he’s fine.).

We like to joke about Little Girl because she’s not the sharpest tool in the shed. She’s a ditz. And is soo annoying during the night and in the morning. She meows, like constantly. And jumps from dresser to dresser, knocking things off onto the floor, then crawls all over us at night, only to repeat this activity pretty much all night. The small percentage of the time she is not doing that, she’s a pretty big Daddy’s Girl. She LOVES snuggling with my husband. She just crawls right up on his belly and parks it.

They all get along pretty well. Brick pretty much ignores the cats, unless they come up to him. Captain likes to headbutt things, and he tries with Brick, but he just doesn’t get it. Little Girl will occasionally try to play with Captain, but it usually ends up with Captain running away (it’s a slow run), or him pinning her down and licking her. They do groom eachother, which is cute … until one of them has had enough and then it ends up in them fighting and we have to break it up.

Anyway, this post is part of the Pets Are People Too linkup with Jade & Oak and Karly Kim.ย  So with no further ado, here’s a ton of pictures of my pets just because.
