Hi, my name is Edward! I am also known as Eddy Spaghetti, Fast Eddy and Squidward (from Sponge Bob Square Pants).
I was born with a deformed leg, which was not growing “normally”, and was brought into Centennial Animal Hospital to get it examined. It was determined that I would need extensive surgery and lifelong care and that was not financially possible. Thankfully, my mom fell in love with me on the spot. She stepped up right away, adopted me and got me the necessary veterinary care. Unfortunately, I did have to have my leg amputated but I live an amazing life, in the best home I could ever have asked for. I am now almost 5 years old and get along really well on 3 legs. I still think that I can run really fast and sometimes wipe out in my enthusiasm to get where I am going.
I have a younger brother named Gideon, an older sister named Thea and then there is the cat, Eli Gammon. I feel the cat is just some distant relative that lives with us and I have no idea why we keep him. My mom thinks that I am really smart because I learn things very quickly. I learned how to “sit pretty” in record time. I don’t want to brag but I did learn it pretty quickly!
I have 2 favorite pastimes. The first is eating! I love food however, my mom needs to keep me on a strict diet to ensure extra weight does not harm my other joints. The second is napping! I am not picky. I am happy to curl up whether it is on the couch or my soft, squishy dog bed.
It was nice talking with you all but I must go because I just notice the couch is free and I am pretty tired!
Hi everyone! My name is Gideon and I am a one year old, shepherd mix. I was rescued from Northern Ontario and was adopted by my mom when I came into Centennial Animal Hospital for veterinary care.
Now that I know what it is like to live in a home, I have learned that I appreciate the luxuries in life. I like to sleep on the couch; dog beds are just not comfortable enough for me. I also love good food. I get super excited at meal times and am guilty of eating way too fast. But, when there is good food to eat, what do you expect?!
I am a bit of a troublemaker. I like to keep life interesting and may get myself into trouble from time to time. I harass my cat, Eli Gammon, constantly. He has learned to stay away from me and I have learned how quick a cat can run! Household items are fair game too! I may have chewed the coffee table and a pillow but they can’t prove it was me. I also may have eaten the philodendron plant but I would appreciate it if you don’t bring that up to my mom. She was a little unhappy with me that day with it being a poisonous plant and all!
I love to go hiking with my mom! I am pretty good at it if you ask me. I even have my own backpack to carry my own water. It took my mom a while, but I eventually was able to learn how to “sit pretty”. I may have been a bit stubborn with the learning process but I had other more important things to do.
Well, time to go, the cat just snuck by!
My name is Princess Poppy! I was named by a 4 year old girl and the name has really grown on me. I have only been living with my family for about one year. I was adopted, along with my sister (Peanut the Destroyer – named by a 7 year old boy), when I was brought into Centennial Animal Hospital by the OSPCA; I had overgrown teeth and couldn’t eat properly. My overgrown teeth made it difficult for me to be adopted so thankfully, I now live in a great home, with 3 little humans who love us a lot. I come to work with my mom about every 3 months to get my teeth trimmed.
I spend most of my days snacking on hay or pellets but I LOVE tomatoes!!! My picture shows how messy my face gets after I eat them. The first time my mom gave them to me she thought I was bleeding – it was so funny watching her panic and figure out where the “blood” was coming from. I have trained Mom and Dad to feed us when we start to whistle (usually when they make the "little humans" lunches for school because there are lots of fruits and veggies in there). They were really easy to train and are quick to give up the goods!!!
This winter has been a very long one and I cannot wait until the weather is warmer and the snow melts so we can spend more time outside purring and eating grass and dandelions. As much as we love snuggles, being outside is so exciting!!! Let’s hope this nice sunshine sticks around and spring 2018 is here to stay.
I am a 4 year old, Chihuahua cross who has many different names. My owners named me Callaway but I also go by the names of Bouches, Wankerino, Guessepie, and my dog-sitter calls me Cal. I share a house with a black cat, who likes to give me baths on a regular basis. I like to chase him when he moves quickly because you never know where he could be running to so fast. We also cuddle for warmth on mom and dad's bed since they keep this “house” of ours at freezing cold Antarctic temperatures and I am used to the Mexican thermostat! Besides being a couch potato, and sleeping underneath the blankets all day, I enjoy going to the golf course and chasing after the cart, sunbathing in the summer time, and being in my mom’s arms or on her lap. I have the stomach/brain of a Labrador which means I LOVEEEEEEEE food! All FOOD! Food is my life besides sleeping. I also love being a terrier and chasing creatures such as squirrels, chipmunks, and my uncle's chickens. I know I appear small, but when I chase them and bark at them, I feel big, scary, and powerful.
Anyways, this has taken a lot of energy to write, so I am going to go beg my dad for a snack, then back to the couch and sleeping under the blankets to keep warm until summer arrives!
Hi, I’m She-ra!
I was named by my human Grandma. Not long after I was chosen by my human mother, she couldn’t find the perfect name for me. My Grandma was flipping through the TV late one night and came across the animated show She-ra the Princess of Power. So, that is how I got my name!
Let me tell you that the name was not only Purrfect, but so me! In my household I call all of the shots. Every morning I have to be fed no later than 7am. To make sure my parents don’t forget, as they are forgetful, I start waking them up at 6am!
I always have to know who my mom is talking to on the phone however, she doesn’t seem to pay attention to me. Play fighting with her always gets her attention! When I was a kitten I grew up with dogs so in my heart I am a dog. I love dogs! I can even play fetch too!
I may seem like a lot to handle but, I am a playful, sassy kitty of soon to be 9 years old. I stole my mom’s heart when she first laid eyes on me at 8 weeks old and that is why I can get away with so much! ;)
DARWIN’S AMAZING ADVENTURE
Hi everyone! I’ll tell you how happy I am to meet you right after I bark to my satisfaction and show you who owns this place. I like to be in charge because, obviously, that is my Border Terrier job.
The other day I took my two younger owners for their daily walk and I was behaving so well, in the forest, that they took my leash off. I was running around sniffing and making sure that the squirrels didn’t bother them, when I smelled a place where a deer had just been walking.
The smell was so exciting I just had to find out where the deer was RIGHT AWAY. I was up and over the top of the nearest hill before anyone could blink and I JUST KEPT GOING. It was so exciting, following the smells of the deer and other animals through the forest. I ran and leapt and sniffed and ran some more. I RAN AND RAN AND RAN. The smells were so fun that I kept going until much later I found myself sniffing along the side of a busy road and I DIDN’T KNOW WHERE I WAS. I hadn’t heard my owners calling for me and hours had gone by.
Luckily, a nice man found me before I got too close to any of the fast cars going by. Another lady with a dog also stopped to help him and they made sure I got to a safe place where I got food (I WAS HUNGRY and TIRED after all that running) and then my owner/mom came to get me and everything was good again.
I’m going to go chase some squirrels away from our bird feeder now. It’s a very important job.
Hi! I’m Marshall!
I am a 9 month old, Siamese mix. I just met my forever family 5 short months ago, after I had been returned to the OSPCA. I don’t know why I was returned because I’m a good boy…well, most of the time.
There was only that one time, when I pushed “Kevin’s”, the fish, tank over but, he deserved it! Or maybe that time when I jumped onto the hot stove, after being told numerous times to stay off the counters? But that’s it.
I like to be very helpful too. Like when I found a flying squirrel in the house. I chased it all over the house until my family showed up. Mom was screaming and Dad and the boys were chasing it around the house wearing boots, gloves and carrying big nets. It was awesome!! We chased it all over the house until it finally escaped outside. Don’t tell my family, but I would have got it if they would have let me.
At night, you can find me snuggled into one of the boys’ beds to keep them warm. During the day, I love sitting in the picture window protecting our house from the birds. Well, that is all for now, I better go as I have a job to do!
Hi! My Name is Desmond. I am a 14 year old, domestic medium-haired cat. I am sure that you are noticing how handsome I am with my soft, white fur and bright blue eyes but, that also means that I cannot hear. It doesn’t bother me too much though; I am an indoor cat and protected from the great outdoors.
I LOVE EVERYBODY! It doesn’t matter if you have 2 legs or 4, I will love you and welcome you into my home with open paws. I also believe that everyone loves me. If I am not getting the attention that I deserve I will tap you gently to remind you how important it is to keep petting me. I am also of the philosophy of why sit beside someone when you could lay on them. I mean how much circulation does a human need to their legs as long as I am comfortable and cozy at all times? By the way, did I mention that I love everybody?!
I try really hard to purr to show my happiness however, with being deaf, I cannot actually hear myself. So, instead of the “typical” cat purr, I actually sound more like I am breathing really hard and fast. My favorite toy in the whole world is ping pong balls. I have tonnes of cat toys but I love the way that ping pong balls bounce and race unpredictably around the house. I chase after them at full speed, sliding around corners on my very furry feet! I am the only cat that I know that does not like catnip. Catnip is boring; who wants a piece of fabric filled with some vegetation to play with anyways? Have I mentioned yet that I love everybody?!
I like helping with renovations around the house be it painting or putting on trim or putting up light fixtures. In fact, my hidden talent is that I am an expert at climbing ladders. My family had no idea that I knew how until, they caught me surveying my kingdom on top of a 12 foot step ladder! Every Christmas I go up the ladder, with my family, to put the angel on top of the tree because I feel they really couldn’t do as good of a job without me.
I spend my days, when I am not laying on my people, snuggled in between the front legs of my dog, while washing his ears, or with my paws wrapped around one of the other cats. I am a very loving and unconditional boy. My whole purpose in life is to spend time with those I love.
Hi there! My name is Gito and I am an exotic, Savannah cat. Now let’s be honest here, I am a pretty good looking dude; I have many outfits that look really good against my white and brown fur. I am told that I’m very demanding and it’s true. I like to announce my presence everywhere that I go.
Let me tell you a little about my everyday life. I start my morning by going into every room in the house and yelling inside to make sure my humans are still there. After my morning rounds, I usually soak my favorite toy in my water dish, or sometimes even the toilet, and then drop it on top of my human’s bed! She ALWAYS gets up when that happens and throws my ball for me. After getting my human up, I run up and down the stairs as loud as I can to make sure I wake up my smelly pet dog, Jaxson; he’s very big and dopy.
I enjoy hanging out on my cat tree most days and in the shower where I can see ghosts! I sleep a lot to make sure I am ready for action once my human finally makes her way back home from the vets. In the meantime, while she keeps me waiting, I clean myself up to make sure I’m picture ready because I like being the center of attention on her Facebook page. I like it best when my human isn’t working because then we can cuddle all day and I can follow her everywhere she goes! Even if she goes outside, I follow. My favorite outdoor adventure is when I get to chase all her chickens, she usually chases me then too, I find it a very fun game!
By the end of the day, I demand treats because I know I protected the house and deserve some reward. After my snack, I will find my way under the covers to sleep right beside my human until it is time for me to do my night check on everyone - night check usually happens around 1am. After I check the house, I go back to my room and sit on my humans face until she moves over enough to let me back under the covers. Then I start all over bright and early the next day!
That’s all for now! TTYL folks!
Greetings common folk. My name is Princess Piggles. When I was first brought home as a young kitten, my family named me Isla. A beautiful name indeed but, due to my fondness for food and adoration (mostly food though), they quickly started calling me Piggles. I added the Princess myself, I mean just look at me, clearly it’s befitting.
My six feline siblings are just ordinary domestic cats. Except Tobey, he has longer hair like me but he is still just average. I’m the only purebred cat in our family. I’m a Ragdoll; it’s got the word “doll” right in the breed name so clearly I’m quite extraordinary. My Mom says she loves us all the same but I think we all know the truth.
I am a proper lady. I never upset my other feline family members. I think they just know their place so it’s really not necessary. I spend my days sleeping and eating, of course. I have my own basket, but my sister’s basket is in a better, more prominent location so sometimes I take hers. She’s not as “fluffy” as me but I make it work, with a few body parts hanging over the edges. I’m rather quiet most of the time and just prefer to be somewhere elevated where I can look down on my human minions and other felines. If I want attention, I will come to you. Please do not interrupt me when I’m sleeping. A Princess needs her beauty sleep. When I am hungry (which is rather often) I position myself in the middle of the kitchen and utter the most mournful of meows. We only get fed three times a day so it’s essential I let my humans know that it is meal time or I might fade away. The other cats eat from regular ceramic cat bowls but I prefer my meals to be served to me on my little red plate. Nothing says royalty like red, so it just makes sense really.
Well, I must rest know. Writing is quite exhausting and working is not something I am used to nor something I ever want to do. It just doesn’t fit in with my lifestyle. Princesses don’t work, they reign over their kingdom.
