Mutts n' More

A Random Collection of Fur-Covered Happiness


You've happened upon a place filled with animals so cute and furry (or not) that they can brighten anyone's day. Their stories are often touching or inspirational and are sure to make you realize how important the animals in your lives are. Enjoy!

If you're looking for something a little more real and down to earth, then stay and read about the life of a lesbian couple with 14 furry and scaly kids who are just trying to make it through life's craziness together. It has its ups and downs and twists and turns but one thing's for sure: it's never boring!


Ash! Hi! I’m Ashley Niels, though most people that know me just stick with Ash. I’m 23 years old and I recently finished my second degree at Northland College. That puts me at 2 majors (Animal Psychology and Biology) and a minor (GIS). My girlfriend Nikki and 12 of our kids currently live with my mom and younger sister in Tennessee. We have a zoo, but we wouldn’t have it any other way! I’ve been an animal lover since birth and I could never imagine a life without them constantly surrounding me. Our house is cluttered, crazy, and filled with love. Our pets are our kids and we love them more than anything. I’m currently trying to get a pet care business going and also working on my pet photography skills. If you’re interested, you can check out my deviantArt account: forpawz. Also, I’m sure you’ll get to know each of the animals through their pictures and various stories, but very briefly, our kids are:

Spunky: our highly photogenic 5 year old male husky/shepherd/chow mix pup
Zane: our shy but sweet 4.5 year old black male cat
Akima: our beautiful, highly independent 4 year old diluted calico female cat
Merlin: the newest addition to the family – our crazy 8 month old tabby male kitten
Drake “Trouble”: our mischievous 4.5 year old dark sable ferret boy
Nate: another troublemaker, our 3 year old light sable ferret boy
Morgan: our skittish little one year old old black and white hooded female rat
Meetu: our cute one year old old black and white hooded dumbo female rat
Chunky: our black and white hooded male rat
Kendi: our gorgeous ball python
Galileo: our amazingly magenta betta
Aristotle: our strong purple, red and pink betta
Phoebe: my beautiful Hypotangerine Carrot Tail female leopard gecko (currently at my dad’s)
Sahara: my cute Bell Albino female leopard gecko (currently at my dad’s)
