Recently Michelle suggested I do an update of our pets, since we’ve had a few new additions, and one very sad departure, over the past eight months. FYI, I do have a dedicated Cats and Dog pages that I try to update regularly — though now that I said that, I realize that I need to add Luna to the Cats page. Figures. :cry: So anyway, in type/chronological order, here are the furry, scaled, and other creatures that live with us:
Blueboy (male, Persian, 13); Kirin (male, Siamese/DSH, 6 — exactly one month younger than Ryan); Fritzy (male, Persian, 5 — his brother Simon has been with my brother-in-law K and his wife L since the summer of 2009); Minerva (female, DSH, 2 as of March 21st — both of Dan’s brothers have one of her siblings, isn’t that adorable?); Felix (male, DSH/something, 6ish); and the most recent addition (courtesy of shitty assholes and Alyssa and her friend bringing her home): Luna (female, 8, DSH).
Alyssa has a 1ish year old Columbian Red-Tailed boa constrictor named Cynder. Currently she’s about 3′ long, but since she’s not too big around she doesn’t seem that big unless you stretch her out. She was a birthday/early Christmas gift last October.
Alyssa has three neon Tetras (she’s had them almost a year!) named…something to do with dragons and glitter and sparkles (she changes their names every month it seems), Dan has a nearly one year old Silver Mollie named Ash, and I have two Betta fish named Northman and Edgington (yes, from True Blood – that’s where Alcide’s name came from as well).
