Morgan, Monty and Matrix — February 20, 2023

Morgan, Monty and Matrix

~ Morgan, Monty and Matrix ~

Four years ago, Morgan welcomed Monty into her life. Then, a few months later, she adopted Matrix. Since then, they have become a family and have brought endless joy into each other’s lives. 

In February 2019, Morgan met Monty. He was a shy, but adorable, python. Immediately, Morgan felt they had a connection and knew that Monty had found his forever home. About six months later, they both welcomed a second python into their home, Matrix. Matrix’s first impression was a bit different to Monty’s in she was bold, brave and eager to get to know her new family. 

Having Monty and Matrix has had a huge impact on Morgan. No matter what may be happening in her life, she knows she will always have her snakey friends. Through the Covid-19 pandemic, several family illnesses, and more, Monty and Matrix were right there, by Morgan’s side. As well as this, they have taught their human so much patience and understanding. However, one of the most important things they have taught her is that when they shed their skin, that change can be difficult but is worth it. 

Because of how much Monty and Matrix have impacted her, Morgan is passionate about spreading awareness about snakes and how sweet they actually are. Through the Instagram page she started for them, she shares many photos and videos that educate others on what living with snakes is like. From posting videos of Monty and Matrix eating, resting and just their day-to-day lives, Morgan loves being able to share them with the world and bring a bit of joy to someone else’s day.

One example of Matrix brightening Morgan’s day was when she was doing laundry. While folding everything from the dryer, Morgan noticed a sock started to move on its own and start to float! Upon further inspection, she realised Matrix had found her way over to the laundry pile and decided to help by bringing the sock a bit closer to her human. 

Something that Morgan, Monty and Matrix enjoy is simply being able to spend time together. Whenever she returns home from work or visiting a family member in hospital, she immediately goes to check on Monty and Matrix’s enclosure. If they’re awake, she loves to invite them out and watch TV or play a video game together (obviously while Morgan and her boyfriend play a game, Monty and Matrix are happily exploring the living room!). 

Every day is full of endless joy and unconditional love, simply because Morgan, Monty and Matrix have one another. They have greatly changed each other’s lives for the better. 

Shameel, Monty, Koko and Lockie — August 26, 2022

Shameel, Monty, Koko and Lockie

~ Shameel, Monty, Koko and Lockie ~

Four years ago, Shameel welcomed Monty into his home. Not long after, Koko and Lockie joined the family. Since then, they have formed a great bond and share so much happiness with one another each and every day. 

In 2018, Shameel wanted to adopt a furry friend. After some searching, he discovered a litter of Russian Blue kittens and was instantly in love. It didn’t take long before he returned home with one of the kittens who he named Monty. 

Two years later, wanting to welcome a second furry friend into his life, Shameel decided to adopt a dog. One day, he met Koko, a sweet little Japanese Spitz pup! He knew she was perfect. Then, at the end of 2021, Shameel welcomed Lockie, a Japanese Spitz x German Spitz, into their family. 

The trio have helped Shameel hugely. Monty, Koko and Lockie bring so much joy and love into each day. Whenever he’s sad or having a tough day, Shameel knows his furbabies are right there. Seeing their happy faces, either excitedly waiting for a cuddle or a game of fetch can always make a bad day better. They all have their quirks – Monty waking the house up for breakfast, Koko singing along to police sirens and Lockie eating the outside plants – and Shameel can’t imagine life without them. 

No matter what, Monty, Koko and Lockie never fail to brighten the day of everyone around them. The trio are rays of sunshine and have definitely changed Shameel’s life for the better. There’s nothing they enjoy more than being able to spend time together. Monty loves snuggling up for a nap with Shameel, especially when it’s cold! Koko and her human enjoy playing together – fetch, and tug-of-war, among others. While Lockie and Shameel’s favourite thing to do together is going for walks and meeting new friends.

The bond that Shameel, Monty, Koko and Lockie share is truly special. Each day is made better because they have each other and they bring endless joy and unconditional love into one another’s lives.
