Day 140 - Pet Tending
I look like I'm taming a wild one in this photo. But all our family boxers were sweeties...from Mac to Ted. My sister and I mostly tended to cats in our growing up years. Our dogs were family pets, with my younger brother always becoming the most attached. Growing up with animals was an empowering thing. It felt good to feel some control in their care... even though most of our pets had minds of their own.
Pets I Tended: Astro Bunny, who nursed off our mama cat. She was the only pet that was all mine... I took Casey to doggie school as a preteen and was mortified to be in charge of the most ill-behaved beast in the class... Jenni and I took turns cleaning the cat box and cleaning the endless cat accidents... Tending to numerous kitten births, back when "fixing pets' wasn't thought of... and I owned a turtle for a day, but left him on the swing set...
