My first ever pets were three snails. Their names were, John, The Mum, and The Baby. Why those names? I have no idea. I loved pets and animals since those early snail days. I think that as an only child pets have always had a particularly special place in my life. As an adult, living in apartments, having my own pet is not a viable option, but I am pet aunty to my friends cats and dogs and always the first one they call on when they need a sitter. To keep you mind at ease I will send photo updates.
