Do any of you have house pets? I have several I just looove animals. I think I love them just as much as children. I have two dogs a doberman and shnoodle. Also I have a cat three birds and a pot belly pig. This may sond weird but of all the pets my favorite is my Meyers parrot named Oliver, he is 6 inches tall and so lovable but just like a child he can have such an attatude at times. I think that is why I love him so much because of his goofy little attatude. Some people choose to have a lot of children I choose to have a lot of animals.

We are an animal family as well! ;) We lost our beautiful kitty last March to thyriod disease, but plan on getting another very soon. We have an miniature American Eskimo, a 50 gallon fish tank (if they count, hehe) and a huge goldfish that my daughter keeps in her room. We plan on getting a Golden Retriever and a Siberian Husky when we buy our next house. I love animals, they are a part of your family and a lot of joy! I couldn't imagine living without animals, although I was feeling so sad when my Lila died I had thought I was done due to the heartache. Now I realize I just cannot live without! ;)

It is so sad to loose animals, but then you have to adopt more because they bring you so much happiness! Your cat sounds absolutley beautiful Lizzi! My Lila was a Lilac point siamese (that's why we named her Lila), so she had lilac coloring with a lot of white and beautiful bright blue eyes. And she was very stuck up, hahahaha. She only liked you after a while of being around you and made it very clear. She was a character!

I grew up with no less than 5 large breed dogs at any point in time (on a farm)... in particular a St. Bernard that I got when I was 5, and actually she is still living on the farm, even after my father sold it (thankfully the people who bought it loved the dog also.) Since moving out of my childhood home I haven't been in a position to get a dog again, which has been really heartbreaking for me. I love dogs.
I did however get a cat, when she was about 2 weeks old, and now at 9 months old she's a terror. She scratches, bites, and runs around the house like a bat out of hell. She's torn down all the mini-blinds in the house. I don't know what to do with her. I am trying to find someone to take her - but I think she may end up going to the pound pretty soon, with the new baby coming and all. It's a shame she is so poor tempered though, because she's really a pretty animal.

It is so sad when you have to give an animal away. I adopted an American Bull Dog he was the cutest thing I had ever seen! We had him for three months and had to find him another home. He was the most misteivous animal I had ever had live with me, he got in to our cabinet and ate every thing including the bird seed. I had to rush him to the vet and have his stomach pumped. When you thought you had every thing dog proof he always found something to get in to. He was simply to stressfull. On the brite side we found him an even better home than we could have provided.

We have 4 cats, all females, two are sisters and the other two are mother and daughter. I didn't do anything to cause this, but when my kids and I go for a walk, all of them follow us, just like dogs. Our crowd must look weird - a woman, two toddlers and 4 cats. Also all of them climb ladders, the aluminum construction ones, and catch mice but don't eat, just proudly bring them to our door.

All of you are so lucky you can have pets. Where I live were not allowed to have pets. I want a cat and a dog. I had a beta fish but it died. I am thinking about getting another one, because easy to take care of.

Ale, let me tell you about one of the most wonderfull pets you could ever own. When I say what it is you are probably going to say oooowww. Try a Rat! I have had the pleasure of sharing my home with several, of course as pets. They make such great pets, lovable, smart and most landloards dont mind them because they are caged. They dont bite so there for they are great with kids unlike the gerbile, hamster or mouse. My last rat Dora was just put to sleep at the age of 4 years. For a rat that is elderly. Give them a try you wont regret it!

I have a Bichon-Maltese puppy who live with us. Due to my husband's and my son's allergies my cats do not live with me, but I still take care of them as far as taken them to the vet for their shots and what not. One of my cats lives with my mother and the other one live with my cousin.

They really do make wonderfull pets! The females are darling but they are highly prone to tumors. All my females had to have several tumors removed. The males are also great! if you dont have them altered, they can become moody when they dont get their way. Not to mention they have enormous testicles that drag and sucrete urine. All my males were neutered as well.

Are vets not costly? It cost $500. to have the tumor removed from my rat. This is only a 1 lb rat! My cat that had cancer cot me over $3000. just to find out if she had cancer, it would have cost another $5000. to try to cure it. Well after paying to find out I couldnt afford to try to cure it. She had to be put to sleep two weeks later and that cost me another $100. The only break I get from the vet is for my doberman that is because he is my daughters assistance dog so we get 10% off the bill.

Lindalu, when I was younger I had a rat. They are cool pets and easy to take care of. The apartments where I live does not allow any pets but fish. There is $500 fine on the spot if your caught with a pet. If you have visit there not allowed to bring their pets. I hope I can find a house for rent so I can be able to have a loving pet. My mom still has my dog, but they live four states away. My dog still cry's for me when he see's me leaving. I was the one who use to give him baths and take him for a walk.
