Use this thread so show off all your pets, ask for any advice on caring for your pets and general chit chat about pets

I currently have 4 cats. Rambo and Nibbler are both 10 next month and they are brother and sister. Regan and Pixie turned one in April and they are sisters. I got Ramblob as I call him and Nibbler 4 years ago when their old owners couldn't look after them any more and I got Regan and Pixie from a local animal shelter as their mum was brought in when she was pregnant. We got Rambo and Nibbler on 8th June 2012 and Regan and Pixie on 8th June last year maybe I'll get another pet on 8th June this year, eh?

I also had another cat called Mylo who sadly passed away to cancer at age 17 two years ago he was originally the next door neighbours cat and every day, he would come into my house and just chill with me and we had a dog at the time who was bloody nasty to him but he still came in daily and when the neighbour moved he told us just to keep Mylo and we did and he never once strayed. I was worried that he would take a fancy to some new neighbour that would move in but he never left us right to the end. That really means a lot because we must have done something right, especially when he put up with Toby who was horrible to him :laugh:

Toby was my Yorkie. We got him when I was 12 and he died in Feb 2015 from pancreatitis. He was 11. He was fine one day and the next he started puking and a few hours later we were advised to put him to sleep. It was such a shock and utterly heartbreaking, especially after losing Mylo a year before. He was such a yappy dog. You were lucky if you got a minutes peace from him :laugh: but I loved him with all my heart :love:

Still think of Toby and Mylo every single day and miss them all the time. In a perfect world I would still have them along with my current pets but having them for the years I did, means everything to me

So here's my furry friends :love:

What a lovely thread!

I had a wonderful cat named Poogle, but sadly we had to put him to sleep, because he was suffering with a cyst on his chest which just kept getting bigger, even with repeated treatment by the vet.

I currently have a cat named Maowi, who turned up in our garden about 2 years ago! She didn't have a collar and we tried to identify who she belonged to, but no one came forward, so we decided to keep her!

Here are pictures of Poogle (black and white) and Maowi (tortoiseshell)

Do you guys always address your pets by their names or is it usually nicknames? I've noticed that I always call mine by their nicknames usually and only call them by their real name when they've been naughty Rambo has the most nicknames mainly because they are based on his size and how bloody greedy he is :laugh: he's a huge cat! He's a healthy weight, he's just very wide and big boned.

Here's the nicknames

Rambo - Ramblob, Flubber, Blubba Flubba, Big Fat Blubber Puss, Blobby, Blobbicus, Bumble

Nibbler - Nibbles, Little Miss Nibbles, Moody Chops, Niblina, Nibble Fish

Regan - Reegy, Reegi bear, demon child ( she's named after the kid from The Exorcist )

Pixie - Pixie Puss, Pixie Lou

I don't know where these names came from but you just randomly say them while talking to your pets and they stick :laugh: even the vet calls Rambo Ramblob now

Rambo was named after well, Rambo its funny because he's actually the biggest whimp of a cat you'd ever meet lol. Nibbler is named after Nibbler from Futurama, Regan you know about and Pixie was named that because she was the runt of the litter and was so small. She's grown up to be as big as Regan now though

Aww than you! We named her that because when she first turned up in our garden, she used to meow non-stop (because she was afraid maybe?)

Yeah maybe that was why but she settled in with you guys pretty quick I'm guessing? its like she found you and people often say that you don't choose a cat, they find and choose you and your story of how you got her and how I got Mylo sounds like they definitely chose us and we should feel very honoured because cats are fussy little creatures at the best of times and are hard to please but they found us to be adequate enough for them :laugh:

Yes she did, she settled down after a few weeks. That's definitely true! Cats just seem to know where the cat lovers are

Do you find that your pets help you with things like anxiety, depression or any other kind of illness? I took a bad panic earlier and Rambo wouldn't leave my side during it and he sat there beside me and I just cuddled him gently and then when it was over I went on my laptop he lay beside me under my arm keeking out and kept looking up at me every minute or so and gave me nose rubs when I leaned down to him. He is my knight in furry armour its true what they say, the best therapists really do have 4 legs and a tail :laugh: :love:
