I'm one of those people who grew up around animals. When I was born my parent's dog Penny was there before I was and I loved her. I want to say it was for her eccentric ways but I think it was just because she was the dog that she was and a good one at that! Over the years we also had a rabbit called Peter and a few hamsters. Then when I moved to university I couldn't have a pet but I'm not sure I'd have able to look after one then I just about looked after myself! A few years after graduating me and Paul had the pet talk. I wanted a dog he wanted a cat there was some debate which lasted another year or so until we were offered the kittens.
I wasn't the biggest cat lover before I got them and now I couldn't imagine my life without them!
