My name is Lauren. I’m excited to be Spot Magazine’s summer intern. Currently, I’m a graduate student at Portland State University working on an MFA in Creative Nonfiction and an MS in Publishing with Ooligan Press. I’m also a photographer, so I’ll be taking a lot of photos of lovely domestic animals for you.
I don’t have any pets myself. I take pet ownership very seriously and don’t think I should commit to life-long companions until I know what my next step after grad school will be. In the meantime, I’m lucky to have roommates with pets. I get to live with these three adorable and spirited cats, Pickles, Mona, and Napkin. Mona and Pickles are almost five years old and were adopted together as kittens. Mona is very intelligent and athletic. Pickles is good-natured and likes to eat. Napkin is almost four years old and is tri-pawed! She's a rescue with only three legs.
I will be featuring Northwest celebrity animals in my posts to come. Who is your favorite famous Pacific NW pet?
