Growing up my sister and I brought almost every living creature home to our parents. Such "rescues" included, minnows, crayfish, spiders, caterpillars, worms, snakes, gerbils, bunnies, birds, mice and of course many stray cats. As we got bigger so did our rescued pets. Many of these animals were brought back to health, fattened up and release back to there natural home. Not without the dreaded watery eyed question "but why can't we keep them too?" Others lived WAY beyond there normal life expectancy which of course had our parents looking constantly at the Guinness Book of World Records. Needless to say we always had a full house.
As time went on we moved into our own homes. Laura, who is now a Mother, Wife and Teacher, went on to study small animal science and occasionally helps out at local vet clinics as time permits. She currently shows and breeds Champion Rottweilers.
As for me, I am also a Wife, Mother and work part time as a School bus driver. My daughter is 3 years old and I can still trick her into leaving the bugs outside because "they need a nap" or "it's time for them to eat with their family". (Not for much longer I presume)
So since I have had great success in our fertile house, with our Sugar Gliders, I'm now looking forward to our first litter of Savannah kittens. If all continues as planned, I hope a female Snow Bengal will complete our home in the near future. I have been searching quite sometime for the perfect girl. Thank you to everyone who has been so helpful during this time!!!
