I have three pets. Lou(Ferrigno) is a tuxedo cat, he’s about 9 years old. Brooklyn(Fonsworthington) is a Shiba-Inu mix, he’s about 6 years old. Teddy(Theodore Froto) is a Yorkie, he is four years old. All my babies have middle names that start with F, just because. My friend gave me Lou, I adopted Brooklyn from a shelter, and Teddy is a love child from my mom’s dogs. We named him Teddy/Theodore because when he was a puppy he looked just like a teddy bear, but was also so tiny and had a chubby little behind like Theodore from Alvin and the Chipmunks!
Funniest Pet Experience
My pets are constantly making me laugh – picking one thing is so hard! I’ll give something funny that each of mine does or have done. When we go on walks and Brooklyn sees a squirrel, he will cry so loud and literally try to climb the tree to get to it, but he can’t so he just cries louder in this strange Shiba-Inu whine-cry. It’s funny but early mornings are embarrassing sometimes. Teddy lets me know that he has to go potty by sitting on my hand and staring at me. They both love swimming so it’s kind of funny when they jump in the pool in the middle of winter and realize it’s cold! When I first got my cat, my friend gave me a stuffed animal that was the same coloring and size as Lou, needless to say Lou thought it was his girlfriend and tried to make kittens, all the time.
What I Like Most About My Job
I love working with animals so much! I love that they are always so happy to see you, they are there for you at all times, and they always make me happy no matter what is going on.
What Our Pet Friends Teach Us
They can teach us so much. They teach us patience, kindness, sense of humor, unconditional love, and responsibility, to name a few.
