I was getting ready for bed, wrestling Sunsilk for my blanket when it hit me.

I have FOUR pets.

Four individual living beings. FOUR.

Just writing this blows my mind. My pack has always been there for me. We have not added anyone new for 7 years but that doesn’t matter.

Adding animals individually when the pack hierarchy is already established is tricky. The pack could reject the newbie. The newbie could try to take alpha, etc. We had absolutely no problems. All four of them got along from the get-go.


I guess I always thought of my pets as one cohesive unit. Their emotions run the same, they spend time together. They are one. It just hit me that individually there are four.


On Fridays, I am going to start a “Flashback Friday” post. Just little blurb about my favorite memories of my pets. Without them, I do not know where I would be right now. These pets saved my life. They constantly remind me there is always love, goodness, and forgiveness in the world.
