Meet Sophira

Taken 03/02/2021:
Saphira is now 3 years old, 23" long (nose to tail tip) and weighs 1.5 lbs!!

Sophira is a beautiful Bearded Dragon and has a gorgeous orange color to her. We got her as a hatchling and she's now about 3 years old.

Meet Nova, Crested Gecko 

We got Nova when she was 2 weeks old, she is now 5 months old and is turning into beautiful Crested Gecko. Her enclosure is situated in a corner of my office away from drafts and the AC during the summer and by a window during winter to allow natural light in. While normal house temperatures are perfect for them, I have added a small red heat bulb as I have to have my office rather cold, at 65ᴼF. With special food nightly and a good misting 3-5 times a day, this little girl is growing well. At maturity, she will be approx 7-9 inches long.

Meet Cinnabon, Pomeranian

Cinnabon is a 11 year old Pomeranian that I brought back from PA on my trip in October 2019. She was rescued by my aunt a few years ago, and due to unexpected circumstances, she had to find a new home for her... that's where I come in. On the day I was to return to IL, we gathered up all of Cinnabons stuff and packed it in my car. Without any of my families knowledge, I put her in the car and off we went. Now, 3 months later (Jan 2020), Cinnabon has won the hearts of EVERYONE in the house as well as visitors and my co-workers as she enjoys going to work with me on my days off. She is definitely a bright spot on a dark day

Meet Aiko, Chihuahua

Meet Chloe

Chloe is a 11 yr old Domestic Short Hair. She's a cuddle bug and enjoys snuggling you while you nap. We got Chloe from Eastland Animal Hospital in Bloomington IL. She is currently the FATTEST cat we have weighting in at 15 lbs 5.4 oz!!

Meet Scarlet Rain

Approximately 4 months old

1 yr 8 months old

Scarlet Rain (Calico Maine Coon? -- Female), was left in a cardboard box on our front step in the middle of a horrible rainstorm on Aug 1, 2020. While doing an animal check, our son Austin, found her, cold, wet, and hungry.  After a trip to the vet, she was given a clean bill of health and has made a HUGE impression on us here. She's extremely lively, friendly, and loves to cuddle. We are guessing her birthday to be around April 4, 2020

First snuggles with my little Baxter

First snuggles with Gus Gus

Baxter likes his hammock!

Baxter has to give Autumn kisses in the morning!

Prince Baxter was born around December 30, 2020 He's a Standard Grey Short Tailed Chinchilla. Gus Gus was born January 6, 2021 and is a Brown Velvet Short Tailed Chinchilla. Also known as a Royal Chinchilla, these little fellas are the sweetest little guys. They love giving snuggles and kisses and running around my office while I'm working on my computer. Baxter was being housed in a tote as his cage was put on backorder. BUT, I was finally able to get it and bring home Gus Gus as well.

During the early morning, they enjoy running around my office, jumping in and out of their cage, playing peek-a-boo with Autumn and talking to us. 

**please pay no mind to the carpet, it's old and needs replaced/tore up. I just haven't gotten around to do that yet**
