From as far back as I can remember I’ve always had cats. When I was a lot younger we had a ginger cat called Cat, original I know, but Cat adopted us, he was never really ours but we all fell in love with him. My mam & dad loved cats; so naturally I loved cats too. I didn’t like dogs, dogs were scary. Growing up there seemed to be a lot of stray dogs hanging around, one of whom bit one of my cousin’s and that was that. Dogs were bad and scary. Dogs weren’t friends. I would never have a dog.
Fast forward a lot more years than I care to mention, I am now the owner of two cats and a dog. While I will admit that Dobby the Cockapoo absolutely is a pain in the bum, he is definitely not big and definitely not scary.
Pain in the bum or not, we do love all our pets. I love chilling out with the cats, relaxing and unwinding after a stressful day. I love that Dobby gets Aria and I out walking, and I love watching Aria and Dobby run around together enjoying the fresh air. I love that Aria and Dobby will grow up together and become the best of friends.
Bum pains aside, we love our pets and want nothing but the best for them, which is why Petplan Pet Insurance is absolutely essential, after all, we all know how crazy expensive those unexpected vets bills can be.
I’ll be completely honest, I think I’ll always be a crazy cat lady deep at heart. Cats are easy, loving and low maintenance. Dogs demand attention, they need walking, grooming, they want to play and they are always up to no good, or at least that is the case with Dobby! It really is like having another child, another child who Aria plays with and loves.
