Show us who's supporting you while you code or reminds you to take a cuddle break when you've been working for too long.

This is my doggo and thanks to him my back is very grateful that I take at least 3 walks during the office hours.

Oh yeah, Jessie got that judgemental look down.
The little princeling on the right, Ragnar, is the king of "if looks could kill", maybe I'll find an example somewhere :D

Unfortunately by now they seem to know that my phone takes pictures, since they start to behave whenever I point the damn thing at them. That greatly reduces the amounts of Derpy photos I am able to take :(

All three are Purebred Maine Coon as far as I know. I don't really know much about cats, my local breeder (which is also an IT nerd) just had the requirement "A RAID5 of big cats please" :D

The two girls on the left are about 13 months old, the princeling on the right is 7 months now.
I've been told they can grow up to 3 years, so I'm excited to see how huge my three monsters will become

My grandma used to have these red chickens, loads of them (minimum 40 :D) all year around. "Hunting" for eggs was a super fun game when we were kids. Paulette and Georgette have very fancy names but I guess they're fancy girls, so it suits them :). Thx for sharing.

She gets very cold and leans over other cats to get warm when other sources of heat are turned off (my PS4 mostly haha). It’s very common to see cats together like this.
When the pandemic is over try visiting a local shelter and see for yourself, you’ll have a good time and the kittens will love to have someone to play with :)

You can play with them. You have to interact with them every day else they go wild again. With my hamsters I let them run around on my lap and play with them. They are less fragile then you would think. Every hamster I have owned has taken at least one dive off a table and been fine.

The more you play with them the tamer they become and some of them can be very cuddly.

We bought him recently, from the owner who used to make money on my Ace in the park. The horse is not very young though. We just fell sorry for the poor horse, who used to work daily in the park and ride little children. Now I want him to enjoy his retirement. But I cannot tell his age.
