When it comes to your pets, does gender matter? Do you prefer one gender over another? If so, why?
For quite awhile my fiance and I seemed to gravitate more towards keeping mostly male pets. If you count just the pets we've owned together (not counting family pets we had growing up), we've had significantly more boys than girls. However, currently out of our 5 pets, 3 are girls. I think this is the first time ever that girls have outnumbered boys in our family!
Despite being one, for awhile I had a bias against female animals. When I started keeping house rabbits, I initially adopted males because I had read that females were more prone to moodiness and/or aggression. When I finally adopted my first ever female rabbit, Berry, I was actually surprised at how sweet she was. Go figure, now I have Poppet, another female, and she is without a doubt the sweetest, friendliest rabbit I have ever met! ...continue reading "Girls Vs. Boys: When it Comes to Pets, Does Gender Matter?"
Today I'm going to write about how I keep our house sparkly clean, despite currently having 5 pets. I know that the messes they make can be one of the major downsides people find in keeping pets. I can understand why. Clean homes are just more comfortable! Pets give us unconditional love, and are a lot of fun to have around, but nobody wants to live in a messy house.
I admit that when my fiance and I got our first apartment together, I wasn't always the best at keeping on top of all the cleaning. It was embarrassing, at times, to have people come over when there was dog hair all over the rugs, and the bunny litter boxes were overdo for a cleaning. Luckily I've gotten a lot better at keeping things clean - most people who come over now don't even know we have pets, other than Kit of course, and they only know about him because he's convinced that every visitor is coming to see him - not because they can smell him, or see his fur all over the furniture! So what's my secret? ...continue reading "Cleaning Up After Multiple Pets"
Hello! I mentioned last Wednesday that my birthday was coming up, and now it's here! To celebrate, I took the weekend and today off from work to give myself a nice long weekend. Mostly to celebrate my birthday, but also partly because I've been spending so much time on the computer lately that my eyes were really bothering me. I don't want to spend too much time blogging today so that I can give my eyes an extra day to rest before getting back to work tomorrow. But I think the last time I posted a general update on all my pets was back in January, and what better to blog about on my birthday than some of my favorite critters in the world, my pets! ...continue reading "Paw Pack Update!"
Happy Friday! How's everyone's 2015 going so far? Ours is going pretty well - everything's pretty status quo so far.
Back before all the holidays I posted pictures of my gecko tanks (for I think the first time ever on this blog!?) and mentioned that I had some tank updates planned. I don't usually get the geckos a lot of gifts for the holidays, considering that they really already have all the essentials, and it's not like they can actually open presents or anything. But I had really been wanting to update their tanks for awhile, and used Christmas as an excuse to redo their tanks. I think buying them new stuff was more of a gift for me than it was for them, but they both seem to be enjoying their new hides so it's okay. ...continue reading "Gecko Tank Updates!"
Last week I posted holiday photos of my rabbits, Barnaby and Poppet. This week it's Aurora's and Miyuki's turn! Anyone who's getting a Christmas card from me this year is totally seeing spoilers, since my card is just a print with holiday photos of all my pets. My family members probably think I'm crazy.
It could be worse. I **only** have 5 pets currently. The other day I was thinking about what will happen when (hey I have to stay optimistic) I'm rich and have a huge house with lots of pets. Can you imagine what my yearly Christmas cards will look like? I'll have to make poster sized cards to fit photos of everyone! Then my family will know I'm crazy! ...continue reading "Happy Holidays From Aurora & Miyuki"
Happy Friday! I hope everyone who celebrated Thanksgiving yesterday had an amazing holiday! If you didn't celebrate, I still hope you had an awesome day!
It's been awhile since I wrote just a general update on the Paw Print Pack! I was planning on posting Kitsune's yearly dog holiday gift guide today but life has been so crazy lately that I haven't gotten around to taking all the pictures I need yet. I'll try to get the 2014 gift guide up next week, but for anyone who's interested you can always check out my dog gift guides from 2010, 2012, and 2013. I know a lot of people like to start their Christmas shopping after Thanksgiving. ...continue reading "Update on the Paw Print Pack!"
I'm posting with a very heavy heart today. Haku, my male snow blizzard het. diablo blanco leopard gecko, passed away yesterday morning. For anyone who hasn't been following his story, he started going downhill back in June. I don't really want to get into the details of his condition in this post, but if you search my blog or just scroll through the posts I've made since June (2014) you can read about his struggles. I'd rather focus on his life than his death now, but I will say that he did pass peacefully. He was an awesome little lizard and will be missed. ...continue reading "In Loving Memory of Haku (7/17/2008 – 9/24/2014)"
Monthly subscription boxes for pets are becoming very popular for pet owners looking for a fun way to spoil their pets!
** Post last updated September 20th, 2016 **
Kitsune and I have been reviewing different pet boxes since around 2012! Since this list continues to be one of the most popular posts on my blog, I regularly edit it to include any new pet subscription boxes we learn about, or to remove ones that are no longer available.
When I originally posted this list, it was rather short. It's grown significantly over the years. If you know of any pet subscription box services that I neglected to add to my list, please feel free to comment below! I've organized the list into categories based on what types of pets they are for, to make it easier to find boxes for each particular type of pet. Boxes listed at the top of each category are ones that we've had the opportunity to review ourselves!
