Show Me Your Animal Fam!
I want to see your animals/pets/furbabies, whatever you call them! They don't have to be furry, I'll take scaley, feathery, slimy, any amount of legs or eyes, I love all animals!
I have quite a menagerie, four cats, a dog, a rooster, a turtle, 8 bettas (yes 8, they're rescues), and several other fish. We are suckers for a stray.
Here are a few of the pack:
^ @Ezra rescued him and adopted him out to me, he's a Mini Cloud Spitz
^ I worked at a veterinary clinic in another life, and this big orange boy was hit by a car outside of my work, brought in for surgery, and then I adopted him.
^ We found this guy (who will be ten in September!) and his brother at a gas station when they were only around a day old. His brother has since passed, but we still have this crotchety old man who is currently molting.
Also I started a game on Discord asking people to guess pet names, so you're more than welcome to guess what their names are (no cheating by saving the image, lol).
Well, you can't really see him, he's about the size of a large rice grain, but I have a single brine shrimp named Dewey who lives in a self contained ecosystem as seen on the left side of the photo. If you're not familiar with those, it's a closed habitat that perpetuates it's own balance so long as you allow it some indirect access to sunlight. Inside, algae grows that offers oxygen and food for Dewey.
Dewey originally belonged to the building manager at my work. During a QA session where I was feeling rather slap happy, I asked him about it and if he named it. He said no and challenged me to do it. So I drew a picture of Dewey in the process and his response was what you're seeing there.
A month later, the building manager was transferring to California and asked for me. In short, he gave me Dewey and now the little guy lives on my lamp table where I can make sure he gets some light for his little home. I check on him daily.
