    As many of you probably know, pets are a great stress reducer and since stress is a large factor to over-eating, I thought it would be fun to see what everyone's favorite furry being is. Feel free to leave comments on your furry babies and post pics!

    My favorite pets will have to be cats. But I do love all critters.

    My baby, Zoey, is a pretty mottled tortiseshell, gray and gold in color. She is 7 years old. I've had her for 6 years. I'll post a pic of her when I can.

    When I got her, she was front declawed, but not spayed. My co-worker's (at the time) neighbor had abandoned her after his girlfriend left him (Zoey was the girlfriend's cat). My co-worker knew I was looking to get a cat and begged me to come see Zoey. I fell in love with her immediately and took her home.

    Zoey has repaid me and my twin with deep purrs, a raspy tounge to give kisses and a cute personality. I love that cat dearly....

    Used to love dogs, I still like certain ones but cats have asserted their dominance in my heart. I had two rescues, and am now down to one, a fluffy little calico named Mouse. She's my profile picture. She's silly and funny and awesome. I love horses too but haven't actually lived with one so can't categorically say they are my favorite. I love cats for their creativity, intelligence, and personality. Well, some of them can be little stinkers, just like people, but I love the nice ones. Mouse follows me around like a little dog and greets me when I come home from work. Tells my spouse when I will be coming home too because she knows the sound of the car. Mouse worries when I am gone too long and tells me to go to bed when I stay up late and wakes me up when I sleep in too late, just like her "adoptive dad" used to before he died. My other cat, Orion, practically raised her. He was the kindest, most nurturing altered male I've ever met and a real sweetheart.

    That worked for Bosco anyway. It's not wanting to do the pic of Bandit.
