*What is your name?
*Where are you from?
I’m originally from Denmark but now living in Vancouver, Canada
*What are some interesting facts about your pet(s)?
Felix communicates with us by using his many sounds. He’s got a whine/squeak/sound for needing to go outside to do his business, one for when he wants dinner. He even has one for when we forget to brush his teeth.
Lily is a very independent cat and do not like to be held and cuddled. She is the boss of Felix and will chase him out of his basket if she wants to lie there.
*What is your pet (s) favorite treat?
Felix loves buffalo bones/femurs with the marrow inside.
Lily loves a piece of chicken neck.
*What is your pet(s) favorite trick?
Felix’s is roll over and give paw.
Lily is not much of a trickster though I can get her to sit for a treat!
*Where is your pet(s) favorite place to go?
Felix loves to go to our local pet store and to the park.
Lily is an indoor cat but loves to be out in the garden when she can escape outside for a short bit.
*Perspective on Adopting a Rescue?
Until we moved to England and since Canada I didn’t know much about adopting and rescues. We got Felix when we lived in Denmark from a private family and a friend gave Lily to us. In Denmark there isn’t a lot of rescues as we see here in North America. After learning more about it, we will definitely adopt a rescue when we are ready for another pet. There are so many cats and dogs looking for their forever home and by adopting you will be helping a rescue/shelter as well so they can save more animals.
*What’s your favorite thing to do with your pet(s)?
Taking Felix to the park and dachshund meet ups and visiting the pet store. With Lily I enjoy the 30 seconds cuddle I sometimes get
*What is your favorite quote?
I got so many but will choose a pet related one:
“Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole.”
*Do your pets (s) love to go for car rides?
No! Felix whines the whole time. We will be getting a car next year so we will start taking him for short trips so he can get used to it.
*What’s your favorite animal product?
Raw food and bones from 3P Naturals
*Why do you think volunteering at an animal rescue/shelter is important?
Rescues and shelters have limited funds and this is why volunteers are so important. Whether it’s walking the dogs, cuddles with the cats, fostering, cleaning out kennels – it all helps the animals and the shelter can concentrate on finding new homes for the animals.
