I'm new to the boards although I've lurked for a while now.

My name is Amanda and I live in Virginia. I'm married with 3 furkids and 4 fish kids.

I have two cats. My first one, Sheba, was a stray that I found when she was about 6 weeks old. There's an interesting story behind her, but that'll have to wait for another time. My second cat, Snickers was given to me by a lady who lives in the apartments above the office where I work. She often let her cat out to roam. He'd always come to my office and meow at me through the window. One day I struck up a conversation with her about him and she offered to give him to me. She said she felt guilty keeping him in her small apartment because she really didn't have time for him.

I also have a rottweiler named Bear. He adores Sheba and Snickers. He was raised with cats and he definitly has a respect for the "claws".

My fish kids are Oscars and Pictus Catfish. I have two of each.

Thats about it for my zoo......for now!

Unfortunately I found out the hard way that they've got spiny whiskers. The first one I brought home got stuck in the net and it took me forever to get him out....so I just put the second one in there water and all.

I never thought I'd be a fish person. My husband kept pestering me for an Oscar and once we got one I was hooked! We've got a 75 gal and a 55 gal. I'm hoping to reinforce the floor in my living room and trade those two in on a 150 gal.
