- Pet forum for dogs cats and humans 


Hello from Michigan

May 6th, 2010, 01:59 PM
Just swinging by to say hi and introduce myself to everyone. I am a 21 year old mother of one. I have a 3 year old Jack Russel Terrier/ Schnouzer mix named Jak (no I did not name him and yes I tried to change it) I also have Tipsy my 9 month old Tiger kitty whom I got as a playmate for my dog after I had my son and the puppy started to feel lonely. Our newest addition is Chops a 9 month old kitten who is one week older then Tipsy. We rescued him from my boyfriends work once his playmate ran off and left him lonely.
We have 3 fish Bob Sam and Angel all betas but they are not too exciting. Oh I should also mention my mice that are living in the kitchen and driving everyone up the wall (almost litterally a couple of times).
I am currently in school for animal behavior and grooming and majoring in mathamatics.
I am also fully aware that my grammar and spelling are horrid. :crazy:
Hoping to get to know everyone here and see if there is anything that I can be helpful with and hoping that you all can help me out as well with any questions that may come.:eek:

One thing, Schnauzers were originally bred to be ratters, and my older dogs would always do chores with me. If there was a mouse within their range, it was one dead mouse. I had to watch the dogs didn't take the cat's real mice away.

Your Jack could possibly get a couple of them for you.

take care of all your critters

Lol Thank you all for the warm welcome

Binky- If my dog wasnt scared of his own shadow it would be awesome but the last time he came nose to nose with the a mouse he wouldnt get out from under the bed for an hour. But luckily the cats do a decent job as long as they decide to get off there butts and do something...

Melinda-No the mice are not pets altho I used to have rats. They just inhabit my kitchen luckily its starting to warm up so they will go outside for the season.
