I can't have any dogs here cause the property doesn't have fences and there are two really busy roads nearby. A dog wouldn't be safe if it left our property. A rescue cat recently joined our family, and he is just gorgeous. As a child I had a dog and many stray cats loved our home, and we had chooks and guinea pigs, and we cared for the odd lamb and goat from time to time. They all had their own personalities and were the friends who made my childhood wonderful.
