My Pets

I grew up having dogs and hamsters, and over the years I’ve had cats, hamsters, rats, mice, gerbils, bunnies, and even tarantulas. Currently, I have two cats and two gerbils.


Luigi is my handsome tabby, adopted in late June of 2018. He was 5 years old, small, and extremely shy when I got him. Now he’s my big tank boy, and quite a bit braver. Despite his size, his meows are just tiny squeaks.


Cannoli is my ridiculous baby. He came home with me at about 5 months (formerly feral) in August 2018. I call him my little shadow because he always wants to be near me, and he loves to snuggle—but he only wants to be pet on his own terms. He’s a biter!

Neville and Ron

I’ve had Neville (gray) and Ron (brown) since early 2018, so they’re getting pretty old by gerbil standards! They’re still as nutty and spry as ever. They’re my little recyclers, chewing up all my empty boxes and toilet paper tubes.
