My family accuses me of being an "animal hoarder" which I find offensive. Not only are all of my animals well cared for and looked after but my numbers are nothing like what a true hoarder would have.
I currently own three Mini Rat Terriers, three Maine Coons, three ball pythons, a koi, two male bettas, three gourami, four bolivian rams, five clown loaches, five bronze cory, thirteen neon tetra, and a grey bichir.
... Okay so maaaaaaybe it's a little much for some but I love animals with a passion and having them in my surroundings has always been rewarding. I've owned rabbits, rats, mice, gerbals, cats, dogs, ducks, even a horse when I was a kid. They're a big part of my life and I wouldn't have it any other way.
