Salutations! My name is Alyssa, and I’m a long-time cat fancier who enjoys talking about fur children, especially my own. I currently have three cats, Boudicca, Garrus, and Charlie, although I am fairly sure they believe that they own me. Besides loving on my own fur people, I volunteer in the cat room at my local animal shelter. I have a tendency to befriend people who are equally passionate about books, geekery, and pets. I also come from a long line of crazy pet people—there are even crazy cat men in my family. It’s awesome.
Growing up, Miniature Schnauzers were the primary family pets, although we did have the occasional cat. I became an official cat owner when I adopted my first cat, Boudicca, and a year later, Nala. While I have a great fondness for Miniature Schnauzers, I currently have only cats in my household. Since some would argue that two of them are rather doglike, I therefore have cat-dogs. It’s pretty fun.
