#GregGivesBack This is an exciting theme… Here is my baby, Zoe! She’s 13 years old, I’ve known her for a little over half my life!!! She’s a cheese fiend, a big talker, likes to trip you and follow you everywhere you go, and also any food you have is also hers. She DESTROYS plants, even fake Christmas trees 🫠 She’s stares a lot too, apparently we never taught her it was rude… she’s the best at being the silliest girl ever #PetsOfGreg
I’m always down for showing pics of my babies!! We have 3 orange cats… Gus, Binx and Ms Penny. And our beautiful fluffy Samoyed, Dolce. I love them all but I must say I’ve always had a cat. Like since I was born. That bond with my babies is important because I find their snuggles so calming. And I can’t help but always laugh at their goofy faces when they are playing, chasing their own tail or jumping in the shower and then going bananas because the water is running. lol #PetsOfGreg
@KDkat3 3 ORANGE? Brave soul. They’re beautiful!!!
@itsjordan hahaha it’s always interesting around here. I also have 3 kids 4 if you count my husband 😂😂😂😂😂 so I’m a special kinda crazy 🤪
How did I forget my pictures 😬🤦‍♀️😭
Daisy Mae! She’s gonna be 9yrs old this year and she loves chilling with all of our plants. ❤️ #PlantsMakePeopleHappy #greggivesback #PetsOfGreg
@RightfulAvocado she’s a doll❤️
@EZLennyLance you need to enter!!
@itsjordan 😸
#GregGivesBack This my best furry friend Copper, rescue mix retriever, wanna be lap dog, volunteer howler for the fire department every time the alarm sounds and the emergency vehicles go by. He loves to play and walk with me, and he is my buddy. Pictured with him in the first picture is my dearly departed cat Max, who just recently passed away at 15 from cancer. I adopted him at two weeks old after he was abandoned by his mother. 😿 I miss my Max. #PlantTherapy #PetsAndPlants #PlantAddict #ADHDPLANTLOVERS #AlocasiaAddicts #donttellmyhusbandyoucanmailorderplants #greggivesback #PetsOfGreg
Hello #GregGivesBack Family 🙌🙌
I wanted to share pur 4 legged babies since they truly are #petsofgreg 😂😂

The Girlie with the shades is Baby Skye. This is my first fur baby since my English bulldog (Big Daddy) of 8 years passed. She is my best companion while on the trails and also in the garden.
Her sister to the right is baby Nesta! And she loves to pull out the weeds so that I don’t have to.
Both are amazing breed of miniature Australian shepherds with tons of energy and loads of life. Would not know what our lives are like without them.

@nellz4estfairyz oh my heart ❤️
All of these cute animals 😍😍😍
Paisley loves to lay on the warm clothes while I’m trying to fold them she is so small she loves everything warm lol and chewy just always has to be right on the center of everything
@JCPlantProper right! I’m 😍 it
#greggivesback
This is Lovey. She is one of the sweetest kitties I’ve ever known. (She has zero interest in my plants 🪴😂) She’s mostly very calm and quiet, but still likes playing a couple times a day too. She loves to cuddle and she literally climbs up on me to hug me! She has a little gray heart near her left ear, which is how she got her name. ❤️= Love
Who would have known she’d literally turn out to be lovey! When my other kitty, who was 14, was sick, she cuddled with her and washed her when she wasn’t able to. 🥺 #PetsOfGreg
Ahh… my sweet Sophie. She LOVES to sleep, eat, and play frisbee. But one of my favorite stories involves the last picture. She was almost 5 months old, it was my birthday weekend, and we were out on the boat. She didn’t want anything to do with swimming but loved the boat rides. We were throwing toys for another dog for ~5-10 min. He would jump off the boat, swim for them, & bring them back. My little princess finally decided enough was enough & she was gonna get that toy. As soon as she jumped in you could tell she regretted it. She swam as hard as she could but wasn’t quite fast enough. When she climbed back in the boat I snagged that last photo. You can see the contempt in her eyes 😂😂😂 So for the next 2 months I tried to get her to walk in the lake with me & swim, but she hated it. Until she didn’t. Now she jumps in any water… lake, pool, puddles, any time of year. But a bath is where she draws the line. She doesn’t interact with the plants, has no interest. But she hates when I give them attention. She pouts, ignores me, turns her back. Quite the diva, but 😍 I just love her!! #greggivesback #petsofgreg #mysweetsophie
@Macstracks awww mine is a mini Aussie too 💕
Lucille, Ramona and my Bailey boi. They keep me moving and are the best potatoes! #petsofgreg #greggivesback #plantsmakepeoplehappy
@Corinne omg I love this so much!
@Boymom-plantmom thank you!!! I have quite a few pictures with that last look on her face. I love it 😍🤭
@Boymom-plantmom also, I had a similar zoo to yours growing up! I had two guinea pigs (turned into 6 bc 1 was preggers when I got her, and then to 10 bc I didn’t separate the babies quick enough 🫠), turtles, a cat, a cocker spaniel, and brought home every stray I found. Lol
Pictures of my cat Little Boy. One of my favorite memories is the day he was born. He was born in the middle of my bed. That was a mess. His mom would hide him and the other kittens under the tub
@Corinne 🙌🙌🙌🙌🙌 AUSSIE FAM 😂😂😂 they are crazy pups
@SunnyPlants 🥰🥰🥰 Awww look at this little one so cute
@learydarrel awwwww😻
@Corinne hahahah that was me when I was younger, in my 20’s! If our town wasn’t so picky about how many animals we can have I prob would still! Omg on the piggies!!!! That’s a lot of piggy poop😂😂 I love it! Thank you for sharing with me 🥰❤️
#GregGivesBack these are my lovely pets. Koda (the rottie) and Luna (the cat) love to snuggle
@Maleeja97 beautiful rottie and your kitty looks like my Eva❤️
#greggivesback #PetsOfGreg This is my chonkster, Zabu, doing what he loves the most - sleeping. The only other thing he loves more is food! I’ve learned that any containers that hold his food or treats have to be opaque, because if he can see the food he will try to dig into the food! The day I had learned this I had just purchased a clear plastic tote to hold his food, and he spent the next HOUR trying to dig through the plastic to get to the kibble. All I heard were his little paws going “thwip-thwip-thwip” and he kept looking over at me as if to say “why are you LAUGHING I am literally STARVING TO DEATH what is WRONG with you” and I laughed so hard I honestly thought I threw out a rib
@learydarrel That story is soo funny! 😂 Omg your cat is too cute!
These are our newest additions- my Hoya- eating Sprinkles and Garbage. And if you know that reference, you’re officially ok in my book. I don’t have many stories about them as they are new (aside from eating the Hoya). They are getting litter box trained and run up to me when I come in. Having bunnies running around inside your house is just as weird of an experience as it sounds lol 😂 I’m planning to plant some mint indoors for them soon! #greggivesback
@Corinne @Boymom-plantmom Like you, I also grew up with a LOT of animal friends- dogs, cats, bunny, horse, hamsters plus any and all strays that I begged my parents to let me keep! Our dogs had puppies and our cats had kittens! Omg! It was awesome!
@Macstracks @Corinne
I love your dogs!!! Those eyes!!! Beautiful!! 😍
@SunnyPlants 🥰 I love being surrounded by pet and animal lovers! @Boymom-plantmom this was such a fabulous theme!
@LauraLynne Your bunnies are adorable! I didn’t realize that they could be trained to use a litter box! Omg! I want one hopping around here now! 🐰
#greggivesback My dog Molly is one of the best dogs ever! She would probably be everyones friend as a human and has been here for me almost 3/4 of my life!
This is olive, I rescued her from my local shelter for my 22nd birthday! She is my best friend, she’s one of the smartest cats I’ve ever owned, she can open doors, cabinets, she is a VERY good huntress (almost too good). She loves to be outdoors, even though she was supposed to be a house cat, she learned to open doors, so that ended… it makes her so happy to be outdoors just like her mom! (Me)
She is my second black cat, I love everything about her and she has the biggest personality you could imagine! She loves to talk, snuggle, and play! My favorite memories of her are from when I first brought her home. I would use an old toothbrush, and rub her nose till she fell asleep. She always would cuddle with me when I would sleep. She brings me so much happiness and I try to do the same for her by giving her the best kitty life possible. She also loves her brother Dinky! He tolerates her for the most part but that doesn’t deter her from trying to play, cuddle and get as close as possible as he will allow ! lol… she is a year old and will be two sometime in August. I adopted her at three months old. As I was filling out her adoption papers, another girl that was looking to adopt, had came to the shelter, to adopt her as well! I like to think it was destiny for us to be together, since everything happened the way it did the day I adopted her! She is my void and she holds such a place in my heart ! 🐈‍⬛🖤 #greggivesback #PetsOfGreg #CatsOfGreg
@Boymom-plantmom OMG I had to do a double take. Are kitties are SO similar!
@Corinne @Macstracks
I love Aussies...for some reason? 👍😍🇦🇺🐕🐕🐶
@Macstracks oh, those blue eyes!!
@Boymom-plantmom I forgot to give her story. Fourteen years ago, this little 4 month old munchkin boldly came right to the front door of the office. She knew she needed help and wouldn’t make it on her own. She also recognized a sucker when she saw one. She was mine and I was her’s instantly (and yes, I took the rest of the day off). Her name is Smalls - from The Sandlot “You’re killing me Smalls!”
@snowtrooper that's the puuurfect cat photo...very seductive with those green eyes! 🐱
