If you know me personally, then you have probably heard a story or two about my two feline friends, Lady and Oreo. They are seriously two of the funniest little creatures on earth. They each have their own unique personality and will do some of the craziest things. But I haven’t always loved cats. I grew up always having dogs around and was so strong of a “dog person” that I even turned in a school paper once to persuade my readers why dogs are better than cats. As you’re reading this, you are probably leaning one way or the other. Yes. You have probably proclaimed yourself once as either a dog person or a cat person.
Regardless of which side of the fence you prefer (or for that matter, which side of the litter box you prefer), it’s safe to say that each and every one of us more than likely has a sweet little soft spot for these furry little companions we call pets. It isn’t even surprising to us that dogs are called “man’s best friend.” No matter the type of animal, your pet will stick by you, loving you on even your ugliest of days.
As humans we can actually learn a lot from our pets. They easily forgive our mistakes when we feed them late or forget to scoop the litter box. They run to the door excited to greet us as we arrive home from work after having a rough day. They stay by our side when we are sick and will play with us at any moment we are willing. They help us feel protected from harm, yet stay by our side so we feel comforted when sad.
I hope to share some of these traits a little bit more each day – be a little bit more forgiving of other’s shortcomings; a little bit more excited to see my friends and family; and little bit more uplifting when someone is feeling down.
Below are some pictures of some awesome pets that I have had the opportunity to take. Take a look! Leave a comment! Contact me if you are interested in including your pet the next time you take family portraits! And check out the Facebook page for Oreo the Cat and become a fan!
