The Capybara

Being a weird girl, my love for animals has a wide range. 

My desire on having pets have expanded to animals that freak my mom out.Yes, one example is the exotic shorthair cat. My mom still thinks the cat scares her, but one day I will get one. 

Well, being on Tumblr, it’s hard not to find animal GIFs and photos, and because of this I found another animal that I fell in love with, the Capybara. The Capybara is one of the largest extant rodents in the world and it is related to the Guinea Pigs. My mom always thought I was weird, but when I showed her a GIF of the Capybara and some images she thought I lost my mind. 

The first time I laid eyes on the Capybara I had no idea of it’s species. So, I was thrilled when I read that the Capybara could be kept as a pet! Imagine having my non-existent Exotic Shorthair Cat and my non-existent Capybara walking around the house together! ♥ 

I won’t deny that I’m a weird girl that has weird taste on pets and animals. But look at this photo of the Capybara and try to tell me it’s not adorable.

The Exotic Shorthair Cat

I haven’t been much of a cat person since my old cat, Richard scratched me on the leg when I was about three to five. Since then, I’ve been more of a dog person, having two golden retrievers and a black Labrador. But growing up, I started getting used to having to see cats everywhere. Back in the firing range there is this cat I feed, and I call him, “Chippy” or “Chips” since that’s what I feed him. But anyway, looking for more things to post on my Tumblr, I decided to search on the tag, #Cats. And coincidentally, I found a post on a cat breed that I got intrigued by.

The Exotic Shorthair Cat, I instantly fell in love with the cat and decided to find more images. Learning that the Exotic Shorthair is a calm cat, I’ve been wanting one ever since the end of last year.
