When you love animals you have a tendency to want them all. All of them. Literally every single pet. Give them to me now. Yeah, that's definitely the mentality. We can't help it, pets bring us an unparalleled joy and companionship that our same-species counterparts cannot even come close to. They're loyal to a fault,caring beyond measure, and an endless source of humor and delight.
When I was a child, my parents rescued dogs. We couldn't turn away a pup that needed a home and we had the space, yard, and helping hands with six humans around to walk, cuddle, and make sure the dogs got everything they needed. At one time we had 8 medium-large dogs. We have no regrets. My parents, to this day, still struggle to turn away dogs. Right now they have four very small dogs even though it's just them and one teenager at home.
Behind the scenes, though, sometimes all that love and all those cuddle puddles is a lot more complicated. Today, by the grace of the Internet, people are sharing photos that give sneak peeks into the life of homes with lots of pets. You'll either find yourself driving to the shelter to adopt a few more by the time you're done, or maybe find yourself settled into the "one and done" family setting. I'm betting you're going to want more pets after today though...
You have to look closely for the cat but when you find him, you'll audibly chuckle.
When you and your girlfriend have 5 cats and 2 dogs and they all love to sleep with you at night, you simply cannot stop with one bed. This couple custom built a bed... it's 11 feet long! Now, there's room for the whole family.
Shoutout to Steve though, who along side Bikini the Pig and Stuart the Rabbit, he lives with a bunch of senior dog rescues... oh, and other animals. It's pet paradise.
You could hashtag this #momlife. It is accurate as heck.
First of all, that's impressive. Second of all, those sweet babies want in so bad.
It's going to be fire.
This is truly a shining example of how much your pets love you. When you're hurt, they will always be there.
This is what happens when you say "no cats." You end up in a cat-cuddle-conundrum. It's purr-fect.
There are 5 very different dogs here... but "they are a true pack."
When you have 3 or more pets, there is almost never a culprit.
You think the begging is bad with one? Imagine 3.
"My mom has brain cancer. Somehow, I think our pets know when she's having a bad day."
I hope that toilet time was worth it.
Now this is an unusual family pack.
Look to the left, look to the right, silently scream for help.
"Yes, I built a raft out of pool noodles for my dogs. Stop laughing at me like my wife did. When I go for a swim, they jump up and down at the side of the pool to get on the raft."
...excuse me, they have 20 perfect fluffy dogs?? WHAT?
One more for the cuddle puddle!
Destruction is only a matter of time.
A month after they found a single cat... this happened.
The most impressive thing here is that not a single cat is screaming in her face.
His name is Bob and he lives with 8 birds... and a hamster.
Announcing a dog to your 3 cats, however, is not always going to garner the enthusiasm you hoped for.
This doggo is doing a concern.
A social experiment went hilarious.
You know you've done something right when they all cuddle like this.
Special. Sweet. Ahh, we love this.
"My husband managed to capture these sweet (and rare) photos of all three of our pets together. I was alone when I fell asleep, but I guess they wanted to join in on the fun."
Who could blame them? Community nap time is the best.
Wonder no longer. The 12 Cats Lady has photos to illuminate your imagination.
One of these things is not like the other, but still belongs.
"Thy have had breakfast and it's a little cooler here now... s the front window is the spot! Soaking up the rays."
