Meet the Pets!

Seeing as this blog is pretty much my diary, I couldn't go without mentioning my furry companions. Each and every pet I have ever owned has become a member of my family. I care so much for them, they may as well be my brothers and sisters (as creepy as that sounds..)!

Rabbits have very slowly become my favourite animal and I put it all down to this little guy! I adopted him when he was four years old, whilst I was doing work experience at a rescue centre. Now rabbits seem to have the reputation of being boring and 'lap pets'. However, if you were to cuddle Aladdin for anymore that thirty seconds, you are likely to get a bite on the face or hundreds of scratches up your arm! Don't get me wrong, Aladdin is in no way aggressive.. He just has a big personality and a lot more energy than I first perceived a rabbit to have! I've managed to train Aladdin to respond to his name, use a litter box and go back in his cage when he is told. He has essentially become my own little dog and I love him to smithereens!

There are times when I never want to speak of these two ever again! They live in my bedroom, so there have been plenty of occasions where I've come downstairs in the morning, having had what felt like a 5 second nap and simply said "the guinea pigs wouldn't sleep"! Having said that, these little monkeys have also provided me with hours of entertainment. We have a relationship similar to that of a mum and toddler - they can be exhausting, but you wouldn't change them for the world.

Having grown up with Arthur, I honestly couldn't imagine life without him. As a child, he was often my only playmate, as I was extremely shy and so had a hard time socialising with kids my age. I remember pretending the garden shed was the Tardis and that Arthur was K.9 - that's probably a highlight for me! Nowadays, we take strolls around the village and cuddle up on the sofa when no one is looking (he isn't allowed on the furniture)! It's true when they say a dog is man's best friend.

Like most felines I come into contact with, Tilly seems to view me as another cat, meaning she spends most of her life following me around and finding new ways to pounce on me! I have to admit, I am very much looking forward to the days where all she wants to do is sleep on my lap, however for now I'm just enjoying owning a cat with NEVER ENDING energy!


  1. Your pets are absolutely adorable with even more adorable names! I used to have two bunnies and one looked exactly like Aladdin but she was long-haired. She used to respond to me similar to how my dogs respond to me after being out for a while. She also knew how to use a litter box! This is a really cute post.

    1. Awh, thank you! Pets are such a big part of my life - it would be weird not to share them with everyone :)
