I posted in this thread earlier about my kids, but I didn't post photos...so now I am! Meet my non-aquatic babies:
This is Callisto, my first born. She will be 7 this year - how time flies! She was my first cat ever (my mom is allergic, so never had them growing up) and she's really made me love cats. She's very cuddly but skittish, and absolutely hates my big dog.
This is Ganymede, the problem child. He's going to be 5 this year. He is honestly one of the most beautiful cats I've ever seen - no bias, I swear, lol. I adopted him from a shelter that I volunteered at in college, and knew the minute I saw him as a tiny kitten that he needed to be mine. He has cost me a ridiculous amount of money due to medical problems (bladder crystals, feline herpes) but for the most part they are under control and he is a very spoiled kitty.
This is Titan. He is 3 years old, and a long-haired minature dachshund. He's seriously the love of my life - how can you say no to that face?!? His favorite things in the world are tennis balls.
This is Orion, my foster failure. He's going to be 2 next month, and I think is a German Shepherd/Australian Shepherd/Golden Retriever mix, but your guess is as good as mine. I thought it'd be a fun idea to foster a puppy so Titan could have a friend and after only 5 days I knew I couldn't give him up. He is a big baby, and is completely obsessed with my mom. He thinks he's a little lap dog. :)
And last but not least, Telesto the Pink-toe tarantula (Aviculara aviculara). I got her from a random guy I met in college when she was the size of my thumb nail, and now she's 5 inches across!
My dogs and cats all have their own blogs - I was really good at updating them in 2012 but have been slacking a bit in 2013. If you want to see more pics, click away. :D
