Hi, my name obviously isn't Tourniquet, but here I'd like to be known as T until I get to know you.

I've had a long relationship with animals, as far back as I can remember I've always had some sort of two, four or even eight legged friend. Growing up I'd take care of all sorts of critters and befriend them, convincing people not to kill the spider on the wall, to things like taking home the stray I found on the street.

I've grown up with dogs, cats, ducks, chickens, goats, horses, cats, fish and there's one thing that they all had in common, they all became my closest friends. They were all unique and special with their own personalities. And animals taught me so much about myself too, they taught me to be responsible and they made me appreciate the love and friendship each and every one of them could provide. From the humble goldfish to the incredible horse, they all gave so much to my life.

Right now my life consists of my dog and my cat. My cat, I picked him up as a tiny kitten from an animal shelter, see he was too small to eat and take care of himself and I went there looking for a cat. I came home with a helpless kitten the man gave to me because they simply didn't have the time to take care of him. And thus my journey began. I'd feed him, around the clock feedings with an eyedropper of formula I'd gotten from the vet clinic. He was totally and utterly dependant on me and we formed a bond like no other. At about 8 months old he got hit by a car and that tiny kitten I'd grown to love like a child was worth every penny I'd spent to save him. He now has three legs, but he's healthy, happy and most importantly still in my life.

My profile pic? That's my dog, he's a beautiful lab cross and I could not imagine my life without him. He's my best friend, my best buddy, my ultimate pal. I love him with all my heart.

I hate living in the city because I can't have the Noah's Ark sort of backyard I had growing up with all sorts of animals in my life, but I can wake up early in the outer suburbs where I live and feed the magpies, watch the bunnies and kangaroos come to life as the sun comes up and hits the mountain.

Animals have enriched my life like no other creature, no other human. And I am working to become vegan, currently vegetarian, however veganism is my ultimate goal. So here I am.
