Blogmas Day 17: The Furry Friend(s) Tag

I thought I would share with you some tidbits about my fur babies. I have one cat and one puppy. So here we go!

What is your pet’s name? Ginger the cat and George the dog

What kind of pet are they and the breed? Ginger is a Himlayan and George is a lab/terrier mix. We think he has min pin or rat terrier in him.

How long have you had your pet? I adopted Ginger over 6 years ago, and we recently adopted George in September after our other fur baby, Bailey (a Jack Russell) passed away.

How did you get your pets? Adoption from the Humane Society for both pets.

How old are your pets? Ginger is 11 and George is almost 9 months.

What are some quirky things about your pet’s personality? Ginger is very smart and strange…she howl meows at night when she is playing with her favorite toy: a piece of string. She also likes to knead on my back while I sleep when she wants to be loved on or fed. Talk about spoiled! And George has a significant underbite which he juts out when he is pouty. He also has terrible separation anxiety and goes to “preschool” (doggie daycare) when we are at work. He loves it though and has three best friends there!

What does your relationship with your pets mean to you? Everything. They are my children, and most of what we do revolve around them. Ginger is more self-sufficient being a cat, but we have to plan our lives around George since he is a puppy and likes to destroy things when left alone. We might have co-dependency issues…

What are some of your favorite past times with your pets? I like to brush Ginger every night and give her treats since she spends the majority of the day alone. This is our special time together each day. And George is fun to throw a ball or toy around, snuggle with, and go on walks.

What are you pets’ nicknames? Ginger: Full name-Ginger Lula Sookie; Nicknames: BooBoo, Chicken, Baby Girl, Sister, Momma. George: Full name: George Glass (from the Brady Bunch); Nicknames: Baby Boy, GG, Boy George, Georgio Armani, Stinker, Baby Brother…We like nicknames in our house!

Here are some pics of my babies:
