I think it’s time I tell you more about myself and my furry friends!
I’m Paige and I am a twenty-something college graduate trying to find out what to do with my degree. I just earned a B. S. in Animal Science from UC Davis (Go Aggies!!) and am currently focusing on making new memories while paying off my tab (code word for student loan debt). My college career started at the great Bakersfield College in Bakersfield, CA where I spent three years earning an A. S. in Biology. I then transferred to U.C. Davis in 2013 and graduated in June 2015. So far, I’ve had plenty of wonderful adventures and misadventures and hope to share them with you all!
Fun Facts: I LOVE animals. Favorite animal: Pig Favorite treat: Gerber Banana Baby Food Dream Occupation: Veterinarian
Charlie, Charlie St. Cloud, Charlie Bear, and Char. These are all the names I call my baby girl, my yorkie-poo Charlie. She is the best dog anyone could hope for. She is loyal, courageous, playful, yet demanding. I first met Charlie in July 2010, about a month before I started college. My mom & I were visiting neighbors when all of a sudden a bunch of white fluff balls ran toward us. Charlie looked like a little cloud floating toward me. The moment I looked at Charlie & all her happy playfulness, I knew we were going to have a great life together-I brought her home that very day. The two of us have gone through many ups and downs together. I can’t imagine a better friend than my lil girl Char!
Fun Facts: She LOVES kids and cats. Weight: about 8lbs +/- a lot of fluff! Like most small dogs, she thinks she is the biggest and bravest of the bunch.
Now, my mom would disagree when I say that these two beauties are my fur babies, but they are! So what if I have to catnap them from my mom’s house to be able to call them my own? Haha! Pumpkin was found in a Wienerschnitzel parking lot on a hot summer day. My mom spent several hours coaxing her into her arms. Since then, Pumpkin has been fixed on our windowsill, greeting us all when we walk through the doors.
Ollie was born to a feral mother cat. My mom adopted Ollie when she visited a yard sale and a woman shared the news of a feral cat and her kittens. My mom picked out Ollie because of her beautiful calico markings and gorgeous blue eyes. Although she acted the part of a feral cat for a while, she has since warmed up to us all and is the most playful of the bunch.
Fun Facts: They are both talkative (Meow!) They both love to play with hair-typically my mom’s hair (ouch!) Although they were both born on the streets, they are both VERY loving cats.
Hope you enjoyed this post. Let me know if you have any questions about myself or my fur babies in the comments below!
