Hellos from Texas!

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 

My name is Andrea, I'm 16 years old. I live with just my parents in a rural area of Texas, but I actually have 3 sisters who live in Oregon. I have a LOT of animals, and I wouldn't have it any other way.
I am responsible for, well, 95% of the animals my family has. I've always been a magnet for stray animals in need, and it's just gotten more potent over the years The funny this is that I wasn't ever really a "cat person", I loved them because they were animals, but I didn't want a lot of cats around. A few strays after the first, and I was hooked, head over heels in love. What's odd though, is cats have always been attracted to me, even when I didn't think I was in love with 'em. I guess they knew better!
Anyway, we have 14 cats, 3 dogs, 5 horses, a turtle, my 2 fish and our newest addition, a 5 month old male lop-eared bunny I rescued from the local shelter for my birthday on June 16th, 2008, Dallas! 10 of our cats are under the age of 2, 5 are under the age of 1, and 2 are only 3 months. I'll write a big ol' thing about them soon.
My passion for the past 8 years(and forever more) is Horses. Arabian horses, to be specific. Riding is my life and you'll find me every day out riding my horses(specifically my 13 year old Arabian mare, Jewell, who is my first horse, who I have had for 7 years and who is the absolute love of my life!). I love all animals though, and have a deep respect for them all. Actually, I like animals more than people, I trust animals more than people and I have more faith in animals than people! haha!
I'm really not your ordinary 16 year old girl, I am just different. I have a heart the size of Texas(lol, I couldn't resist ). Animals come first in my life, always. Before me, before anything. it has always been that way and it will stay like that.

WOW sorry, that is long.
