Welcome to the Zoo!
Iraj shows off her family of unique pets. Mental illness and stigma cause isolation. Having pets around provides company, a daily routine and a sense of accomplishment from caring for them. Come and meet bald cats and inflatable puffer fish, several kinds of birds, as well as a whimsical old shelter kitty posing for his photo shoot. There are even a few reptiles and amphibians lurking here. Welcome to the zoo!
Thunder is my old (10) shelter cat. He has a very calm, gentle, unshakable demeanour. Over the years I've been able to take some very good pics of him which showcase his character.
Puffer fish are unique, intelligent and they make fascinating pets. Iraj describes some common pet puffer species and her own collection of puffer fish.
Iraj describes the pros and cons of living with her two Sphynx cats, including their special needs and quirky, delightful personalities.
