Full Name (Including Embarrassing Second Names): Meghan Brooke Lodge
Location: Cairo, GA
What I Do for a Living: Disability Adjudicator with the State of Georgia
What I Do for Fun: Write, draw, take pictures, knit/crochet, solve puzzles, volunteer at my local shelter.
The Furry Members of My Household Are: Axle and Remington High Brass "Remi" (dogs). Philip J Fry, Turanga Leela, and Lord Nibbler (cats).
My Favorite Things to Write About Are: Animals, particularly my own! Also anything I experience/am passionate about.
My Pet Peeves Are: Wilfully bad spelling/grammar (don't we all have spellcheck?), irresponsible owners/rescues, smacking, misbehaved pets (like my own...).
My Guilty Pleasures Are: Haagen-Dazs Peppermint Bark Ice Cream, cute cat toys, "smart" pet toys, dog collars, candles.
How I Deal with Cat/Dog Hair: Furminator de-shedding tool, frequent brushing, grain-free foods, sweeping daily (Swiffer is your best friend!), leather furniture, minimal carpet.
What I Want to Be When I Grow Up: Superwoman. Seriously. I used to want to be a vet, but I can't stand seeing animals in pain. I love investigating fake or bad rescues, as well as other criminals. I've even staked out my own house and caught a burglar!! I wouldn't want to be a PI or a cop because they have rules. Superwoman has no rules.
