Besides my human family (parents and sister) there's a dog and a cat (both girls...naming them "bitch" and "she-cat" is a bit akward to me) living with us. (I'll post a couple of pictures on the pets' pics thread).
In the past we had two more dogs and another cat...but unfortunately, their time on Earth expired.
The dog, a German shepherd, was given to us by our neighbour, who's a vet. Someone he knew had some puppies and they didn't want them, so we welcomed Hada (faeiry) six years ago. She's quite crazy, but adorable
And about the cat...She has belonged to someone else, as she's got an old collar, but it seems she wasn't treated right: the vet found her wandering around his house and he used to feed her until he moved...One day she walked after us and started visiting us. It took her a lot of time to get used to us (she's always scared, that's why the vet told us she might have been mistreated), but in the end she's managed to get into the house whenever she wants to (she knows how to win our hearts!
) and we keep a cosy place, fresh food and water for her. She doesn't have a name (my mum calls her "Lolita" but the cat doesn't care at all), so I call her anything nice I can think of: Bola de pelo (hair ball) or Gata gorda (fat cat)
She's OK with that, as long as we caress her, feed her and play with her
