These days we are much more pedestrian, with just a cat and a dog to our name. We did recently find ourselves seriously discussing a fish for PJ. He was fascinated by the one we fish-sat for a couple of weeks last year, and maybe one day soon we will.
But for now, here is Asha, adopted from the pound as a kitten when I lived in Darwin. She's now 8.
And here's Brock, also adopted from the pound as a very neglected 9 year old when we lived in the Blue Mountains. He's now 13. His hobbies consist of sleeping (23 1/2 hours a day) and eating.
Both these two have always been sensational with PJ, never raised so much as a claw in his direction despite some fairly severe toddler treatment.
We couldn't ask for lovelier pets, really.
