I am Taffy. I am 46 years old and have a boyfriend of 5 years named Phillip. We live next door to his dad. We have 1 dog, a pit bull mix from the pound. Her name is Dazzle and she is 4 years old. We have 7 cats; Jasmine, 13; Moon, 12; Tigger, 12; Gypsy, 12; Taffy, 6; Ruger (the only boy pet we have), 3; and Bean, 1. Four of the kitties are rescued kitties. My real name is Renee but I use Taffy as my online name generally. Feel free to call me either one. On thriftyfun.com I like to read pet tips and recipes mostly. Times are tight for us and I can always use good thrifty recipes. We love to eat!
