I thought this would be a fun topic to kick off the OOC discussions because I'm a hard no-lifer :')
I have a cat named Lucy and she's basically the worst cat ever. She's incredibly destructive and has wrecked the sides of the couches, my bed, my sheets and the new carpet. She meows and meows in an extremely whiny tone all day for no reason. I think she has major emotional problems too. For all her many flaws, I love her to death. I'm the only one that can pick her up without getting my face clawed off, so I'm grateful for that I suppose.
The other pets belong to my parents. I have a chow mix named Marley who guards the yard (we named her Marley before Marley and Me ever came out so that gives us hipster cred). Then we have two schnauzers, one named Little Dog and the other named Pepper. Little Dog is a prima donna and Pepper is extremely shy. They're married. My parents love them more than me.
About your cat. Do you have a scratching post, or multiple scratching posts? It might save your furniture and carpet. If not, I can show you easy ways of making them. Cats mark their scent on things, often by scratching them. That is a common way that they destroy items in a household. Also, she has access to windows to see outside, and places to get way up off of the floor, right? Cats, especially when other pets are kept in the same house, need a place up high to get away from them and to be by themselves, or feel safe, and be able to see around them. These are just suggestions though. Thought they might help to resolve some of her destruction.
As for me. I've a dog (Black lab) Samantha. Sam for short. She's a lazy pup.. Well ok, not so much a pup anymore. She's getting a bit gray around the muzzle. Loves her snuggle and scratches time. Thinks she's a lap dog. <3
I also have three aquariums, all of them planted with live plants. In the largest, a 20 gallon, I've got several endlers livebearer / guppy hybrids, a couple of ottos, a glo-fish, and one clown pleco.
My next largest contains a couple of mystery snails and a betta that I rescued from poor conditions at walmart. He's feisty and happy now.
The smallest has a single false albino female endler/guppy hybrid. She's kept alone because she was the only female in the group, and would otherwise constantly be pestered with.. overeager males. Her mother passed soon after the birth of her first brood. Some sort of issue developed as a result. Still not entirely sure what happened. Either way, the false albino seems happy.
My parents have a ragdoll cat named Angel, who is a big love-bug old lady cat. Her only issue is that she's partly deaf, and drools everywhere.. lol
