My wife and I are huge animal lovers outside of reefs. We once had 3 vervet monkeys, a chimpanzee, a grey parrot, 4 dogs, and 11 cats when we were living in Africa. Now we've scaled down and just a boy (cat: meatball) and girl (dog: kali). Both are just heading into adulthood now. Pic is a few months old as they've definitely grown up a bit, but this is pretty much a daily occurrence. shepherd and feline symbiosis!
