The Pet Tag

I feel like nothing has been going well for me today and yesterday. I was busy yesterday, but I was also a bit distracted. I had so much to do that I could hardly think. On top of that, I kept tossing and turning through the night. Eventually, I woke up at around 6 due to my alarm (which I don’t remember turning on for 6 a.m.) and had a trouble going back to sleep.

When I woke up again because of my alarm, it was 7:45. I was exhausted but I had to get up for class. My class is at 10:30 but I like to get ready and leave an hour and a half early. I don’t remember what happened after. I only remember waking up again, only to check my phone and find out that it was 9:55. I almost decided not to go to class because I didn’t think I would make it. I got ready in about FIVE MINUTES and left. Luckily, I made it to class five minutes late (I ran across campus, and by the time I reached my building, I was panting so much, but I was trying to play it cool). Okay, enough of my ranting, let’s get on with today’s blog post!





1. What is your pet’s name? 

Filful, Honey, Lucy. 

(Ps. Filful means ‘pepper’ in arabic.)

2. How old were you when you got her/him? 

I was 10 when I got Filful, 14 when I got Honey, and 18 when I got Lucy. 

3. What is the best thing about him/her?

Filful is so friendly! He loves people (even strangers) and being petted! Meanwhile, Honey doesn’t care about anyone. She’s so independent. As long as I feed her, give her water, and let her go outside (in the screen room in the backyard. I don’t let my cats outdoors), she’s happy with her life. Finally, Lucy is everything I ever dreamed of having (except for the part where she’s afraid of everything and people, I did not wish for this). She’s so sweet (to me, at least) and small. 

4. What breed is your pet? 

Filful is a Himalayan and Persian mix. Honey is a Himalayan, and Lucy is a Chihuahua. 

5. How old is she/he?

Filful is 9 years old , Honey is 5, and Lucy is 1.

7. What are some bad habits your pet has?

Filful likes to push things off the table. A lot of cats do this. It’s so annoying (it’s funny sometimes). Just the other day, I had come out of the bathroom, only to see that he had pushed my cup of coffee off the desk, spilling the coffee onto my carpet. Great, right? I spent half an hour cleaning (and I had somewhere to be). I don’t think Honey has any bad habits. She’s super calm and graceful. She doesn’t do anything wrong. On the other hand, one of Lucy’s bad habits is pulling tissues out of the waste baskets in the bedrooms and making a mess. 

8. What are some nicknames for your pet?

I call my pets so many different names. Some of Lucy’s nicknames are Scooby Doo, Scoobers, and Princess. As for my cats, I usually call Honey “Honey and bunny” because it rhymes, and I have like two or three nicknames for Filful, but they’re in Arabic, therefore I can’t type them out.

9. What are some tricks your pet knows? 

My cats don’t know any. My dog knows how to sit, shake, and lie down. 

10. Best thing about being a pet owner?

Everything about being a pet owner is wonderful, even the bad parts. I think the best thing is just having that connection with my pet and loving them so much that I think about them a lot. It’s such a great feeling. It relieves my stress and makes me feel so loved (and needed) as well.
