Furry friends

>These days, I am happy to say that we are a household of 3 non-furries and 3 furries (2 cats and a dog). I never had pets growing up so when we first welcomed our 2 siamese cats (Maru & Luna) into our home as kittens it was such an exciting time (^_^). I was still working as a legal type in the City of London back then. Life in any large, congested, polluted city can be stressful but especially so if you work long hours at a souless job. It was the knowledge that these 2 little bundles of fur were waiting for me at home which somehow used to get me through the day. They were and still are my antidote to all that is stressful about living in a big city. I remember sitting in my office and wanting to ditch everything to rush home just to get a glimpse of their little furry faces and snatch a quick cuddle. Just being around them, and animals in general, has always helped me …
