Sarah is the author of Journeys of The Zoo.
Her interests include providing for her family, gardening, sustainability, supporting others and family walks. She does some of her best thinking in the shower. She became a Mother for the first (and last) time when she had Triplets in 2009. Sadly, Alexander passed away.
Her mantra is “Life is Short”.
The other Zookeeper is Ed.
When he isn’t sitting at his computer bringing home the bacon he likes to be in his workshop making (or breaking) things.
Ed is really private (and follically challenged).
Alexander was named after “Alexander the Great” 356BC-323BC. He is our first-born King, and considered to be one of history’s most successful commanders. After a valiant fight, Alexander passed away from “Necrotizing Enterocolitis, NEC”.
We miss him every minute. Alexander and Max are identical (mono/dizygotic) twins.
Max(imilian) was named after “Maximilian the Emperor” 1459-1519 and is second in-line to the throne.
His interests include catapulting things into the air, determining what fits in electrical outlets and deconstructing everything.
He is his Father’s son.
Artemis was named after “Artemis the Goddess” of Ancient Greece.
She loves puzzles, looking after others and ensuring that everything is as it should be. Don’t try to call her “Artie” or “Missy”.
She is her Mother’s daughter.
In December 2015, after knowing her for over two years, Maya finally got to be a member of our family. Something that she’s wanted to do since she first met us.
We’re still getting to know her and as we do, we’ll share our adventures with you.
Aries, usually referred to as “Aries the Cat” was the Matriarch of the Family. She was born in the month of April making her born under “The Ram” Zodiac sign, hence her name.
On January 29, 2014, at almost 18 years old, she passed away suddenly from renal failure. She was the first member of the original Zoo. Read her tribute post. She will be forever missed.
On November 1, 2015, after almost 10 years with us, the remaining original Zoo member passed away from kidney cancer. Having her come into our lives made us find our desire to help other cats and dogs in Mexico. Her legacy will live on in each and every animal that we save.
On January 23, 2015, he passed away due to health complications including an enlarged heart. Phoenix was the third member of the original Zoo. Read his tribute post. He will be forever missed.
These are the Journeys of The Zoo.
