Me and my BFF
SA personalities introduce us to their fabulous, furry friends.
Gamer “When I adopted my mixed-breed cat from the SPCA, he was constantly up to mischief and just loved climbing around and jumping off things, so Ninja seemed like an apt name. These days, though, he’s quite overweight, and maybe not so deserving of his title. I’ve even put him on a diet, but it doesn’t seem to be working. I think some poor unsuspecting neighbour is dishing out tuna for him.”
Model and entrepreneur “The moment I saw my Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, she seemed so regal that I named her after the Russian princess Anastasia Romanov. True to type, Annie is such a picky eater, and only likes chicken, rice and, appropriately, Royal Canin pellets. She’s amazingly in tune with my moods. When I feel blue, she sticks to me like Prestik, lying on my lap, feet or my head! And she really makes me laugh. I used positive reinforcement to house-train her, so now on our walks, if I don’t acknowledge her peeing, she’ll pretend to do it again, just so that she can earn my praise.”
