  • This is Carter when he was a baby. He was a silent Sam for the first couple of years we had him which is unusual for a Siamese. At 10 years of age he will not shut up. Also known as my night cat because the only time he wants to be around you is after 10 at night.

    This is Cecil. He was adopted as a rescue. He is Polydactl having a total of 23 toes. He is allergic to chicken, which anyone who buys pet food knows that a very large percentage of all pet food contains chicken in one form or another. Cecil is my morning cat and the only time he wants to cuddle is when I am eating breakfast.

  • I wish I could bring Grover Dog with me to work!  He would cause quite a ruckus, I'm sure, though.  He would love to run around with the camp kiddos and chase people up and down the basketball court and sniff everything and everyone.  It would truly be the best day ever for him!  He's a super sweet floppy hound dog mix that loves to go "Roooooooooooo!".  We adopted him from a shelter after he had been at another shelter and then was adopted and returned by 2 other families who, I think, were just sold on the cute factor and not really prepared for a hound dog.  Because of all that upheaval early in his life, when we got him he had no manners and a lot of separation anxiety, but we've worked with him a lot and now he's just the best boy ever!  Maybe a tad spoiled.  He knows lots of commands, including "left paw" and "right paw".  He loves to run around the yard, dig in his sandbox, chase squeaky tennis balls, chew on toys and then after a long day, settle in for cuddles on the couch.

  • My co-workers Winnie...


    And Gertie...


    Who are unfortunately at home while I am at work.  They loved it during the lockdowns because they got to rule completely.  But now the Human has to leave the house to earn money for food, toys and treats.  More uninterrupted snoozing time for them!

    I'd love to bring them in to work, but it's a school so absolutely not allowed.

    Mind, one of our teachers once smuggled her tortoise in every day for six months because he needed to be syringe-fed at precise times!  She had a bag of books and a wicker basket (containing Rover), and every breaktime a member of staff would act as lookout while she took him out and syringe-fed him.  He was very well-behaved and only occasionally kicked off in his basket (and she passed it off as student misbehaviour every time).

  • I grew up around reptiles and amphibians. My dad did a lot of things and one of those things was herpetology. At one point I had 26 different "pets" and my room basically looked like a reptile exhibit. I had maybe 15 tanks and my neighbor and I got some free wood from a tree farm nearby and built a stand for them so there were effectively two layered rows of tanks. The best part was almost all of this was free. We didn't have squat for money, parents were split, etc.. so most of the tanks were either hand-me-downs or super cheap used. I did buy one sweet one new that I saved up for though, it was a specialized reptile enclosure that was more vertically oriented.

    But yea.. once it got to 26, my mom said no more and made me start getting rid of some of them. I don't know what I widdled it down to but it was about a dozen. Then once we moved I only kept one that made the trip with me to WI.

    Now I just own dogs.

  • This is Lola.  I would love to bring her to work with me but there are two problems.  The first is that she doesn't like getting into the car.  Once she is in the car and we are away from the house she loves to ride.  The second is that she doesn't really get along with other doggies and there are always 2-4 other dogs in the office. 

    Lola is also a rescue dog but she was rescued from the side of the road as a 4 week old puppy.  Someone had put her out with a bowl of dog food for bigger dogs.  My wife, her sister, and niece found her and picked her up.

  • Holly (front) and Noel (back) are 3-year-old black-and-tan/silver beagles, acquired pre-pandemic. We go every year to Santa's Whispering Pines Campground in Bracebridge, Ontario. The campground managers bread their dog and these two, along with four siblings, were the result. The Christmas-themed names given by the kids were apropos. The two red-eared slider turtles, Crush and Squirt (Finding Nemo), and two budgies, Earthquake and Tsunami (parakeets for US folks), are in the house enjoying their environments.
    I worked at home for near six months and the dogs visited me in the basement but that's the closest they'll get to me in an office setting. I can't trust them elsewhere, not off leash. Their noses take them places and, being siblings, they seem to innately know where they both want to go and what furry creature is next to track/hunt.

  • Just Fletcher these days.  3 year old belgian sheepdog.  We've had a few belgians, 1 aussie, and one mutt, along with 3 cats in the past.  Used to breed snakes so had lots of them at various times over the almost 20 years i was into it.  (like over 100...)  Ball pythons, and green trees mostly.  Stray boa, corn, and milksnake sometimes.  Had a reticulated python (Sabastian) for 27 years that passed in 2017.  Messed with red eye tree frogs for a lot of years also because my son liked them, and briefly crested geckos.  I recall a mean little iguana at one point too... lmao.  The last surviving snake was a green tree that passed 2 years ago.  He was 21 i think.  Pretty old dude for one of those and i miss him, but no more snakes for us i don't think.  I miss having fish tanks too lol.

  • Two cats - Nox (all black) and Helena, a Russian blue. Both Harry Potter names. Nox was somewhat a rescue, as the wife was volunteering at a vet clinic, and she came in because the owners wanted a cat that was a human cat, not a cat's cat. All she did was hiss and such, but she's all bark and no bite. Wife would have none of that, so even while in a cage she would hiss at anybody walking by, wife would open up the door and give her rubs. She would then purr. We had lost our Siamese about 6 months prior, but was unsure how she would do with an established cat. Then that cat had an issue, where she needed surgery, and although the surgery went well, she didn't make it. So, Nox came home that same day, on halloween. She did good, friendly, until the other cat, Helena, came home. They are about 5 months in age apart and get along great. Nox not so much with me, I can give her ear rubs and she will lay on me in bed, but if I try to pet her she bolts. Helena is just a whiney cat. If you think Siamese are bad about needing attention, get a Russian blue. 

    Then there's Paulie, my Blue Crown Conure. The last two cats (Mia & Roo) taught him how to meow. He also says Hi, How are ya, what ya doing, cracker, quacks, wolf whistles, and says poop. Wife worked at a pet store, and fed him from hatchling. He had attached himself to her, and when the new owners came to get him, he bit them, so they quickly changed their minds. They pretty much gave him to us, and all the accessories at cost (cage, some toys, few treats, small bit of food) and has since become my bird. He tries to bite anyone else, unless he's out of his cage. He's 20 now, and will live up to another 10 years.

  • damon.theis​ I think you and my dad would have gotten along great together lol. He had a couple reticulateds as well, he donated one of them to an exhibit in Tennessee and the other he still owned when he passed. Not sure where it ended up after that.

    We had a Burmese python when I was younger that my dad had in a converted bedroom. It busted out one day and ate the neighbor's cat. I never had anything THAT big, myself. I had a few iguanas over the years though, 1 green and 2 rhinoceroses. The green iguana (Fred) was an a-hole. I think out of every reptile/amphibian I ever owned, he bit me the most. I hated feeding him and he was probably the only reptile I had that when he died I was like "whew... that's over." When he was youngish, I used to skateboard around our apartments with him on my back and he was super chill. Not sure what happened as he aged but he just became angrier and angrier lmao. 

    I almost got everything taken from me by my mother at one point. Because my parents were split, I'd spend time between houses and when I was at my mom's for an extended period of time she had me signed up with Big Brother's and my "big brother" or whatever they were called, asked one time what I wanted to do... so I said I wanted to go catch snakes in the mountains (this was in Cali). I ended up finding a baby rattlesnake and he insisted I shouldn't touch it but my dumbass poked a few holes in a Ziploc bag and managed to catch it lol.. I put it in my backpack and took it home. Needless to say, it got out of the bag but was still in my pack and my mom was FURIOUS. She called Big Brothers, complained, blah blah blah... but more importantly she told me I had to get rid of the snake. So my buddy Danny and I biked down to this creek that ran through our city (Ventura, CA) called the Barranca.. and instead of just releasing it we decided we wanted to play around with it. It tried to get away at one point so I tried to put my foot behind it's head to stop it (softly, of course) and miscalculated the distance.... I ended up catching it a bit further back so it turned around and bit me above the ankle.

    So we hopped on our bikes and started biking back to the apartments as fast as we could and within about a minute or two I started feeling crappy so I stopped and laid down in a park while my friend went and got my mom, who called an ambulance lol. I got several shots but was ultimately fine. Just felt like crap for a bit and was in a TON of trouble, naturally. 

    My mom threatened to take away my pet privileges but somehow she didn't.. but that was about when she had me cut the number down a bit.

    Fun times.
