A few things have changed… In August of 2018, we brought in a cat named Brindle (who had kittens). You can read her story. Also, our cat we had from college, size_t, passed away. He had diabetes for the past few years and had slowed down on eating. It was very sad.
Now (as of February 2019), we have a dog and three cats. We decided to keep two of Brindle’s kittens. This makes for a different kind of relationships throughout the house. Bri and I are our pets parents. We are also parents to Lupin and Tonks (Brindle’s kittens; named after Harry Potter characters).
Since Brindle is also our daughter and she is mother to Lupin and Tonks, Lupin and Tonks are our son-grandsons. (But we just call them our sons.)
Wiki’s relationship is interesting because he is a brother-uncle to Tonks and Lupin and only a brother to Brindle.
Lupin and Tonks are brother-nephews to Wiki.
Brindle is Lupin and Tonks’ sister-mother.
So we have an interesting dynamic to our house.
Bonus… I’ll throw in our houses in Hogwarts!
- Janis – Hufflepuff
- Bri – Gryffindor
- size_t – Gryffindor
- Wiki – Ravenclaw
Brindle, Lupin, and Tonks are too young to be sorted yet. I’ll take the quiz to see what house they’ll be put in later in their life.
