As a family, we have two cats, two rabbits and two tortoises. Lisa also has a dog and a bearded dragon.
Our cats, Tobella and Marlie:
We adopted Tobella from Wood Green Animal Shelter after she was found feral as a very young kitten. She has been with the family since November 2009.
We rescued Marlie from a house where there were lots of cats and also four rabbits who were neglected (we rescued 4 rabbits from the same household as Marlie) When the owners moved out, they abandoned Marlie as a very young kitten, and she has been with our family since July 2011.
Our two rabbits, Bounty and Minstrel:
We rehomed Bounty and Minstrel in November 2020.
Lisa’s dog, Woody:
Lisa adopted Woody in May 2018, when he was just 10 weeks old.
Lisa’s bearded dragon, Peanut:
After having a passion for reptiles for a long while, Lisa decided to adopt a bearded dragon. He has been with Lisa since 2016.
Lisa’s leopard gecko, Leo:
Lisa rehomed Leo in August 2018 after his owner could no longer care for him

In early 2017, we adopted Fred and George after they were no longer wanted by their owner.
