Chris and I are living at Animal Planet. We’ve done a lot of pet sitting, and this is by far our biggest job. It seriously feels like we should be on an Animal Planet tv special with this crew. For the past 2 weeks, we’ve been responsible for 3 dogs, 2 horses and 2 cats. Chris managed the zoo himself last week, and has been grateful for my help this week.
It’s a lot of work. We let the dogs out 5 or 7 times per day, feed them twice a day, feed the horses twice a day and keep the cats happy by keeping their food bowl full and their litter box clean. All this is just the necessary stuff. There’s lots of petting, cuddling and hanging out with the pets we do too.
Meet Chase. He’s the problem. He’s younger than the other two and always wants to play. He’ll take away their toys just to have them chase him and try to get it back. Chase sleeps in the bedroom with Chris and I and is always trying to get in bed with us! When Chris was pet sitting alone, he let Chase sleep with him and now that I’m here, Chase is on the floor. He bothers my allergies and really just takes up too much room in the bed!
This is Abby. She’s my favorite! She’s pretty mellow and always comes up to you for pets. Once you pet her she puts her paw on you or licks your hand. What a sweetie! She also does this little dance with her feet right before she gets a treat.
Meet Savannah. She’s really friendly and social. Always wants to be around people. Sometimes when I’d watch tv, she’d sit on the back of the couch by my head. She reminds me of Twosy, always happy and walking around meowing.
