Pet Thread

Do you have any pets? If yes, what kind of pets do you have. If no, do you want pets?

I have three cats, one is a bicolor cat (male) and the other two are tabbies (one male and one female). All three were originally strays that I rescued from the street. I love cats because they are cute, mischievous, and affectionate.

Over my lifetime I've had many -- fish three or four times, Gerbils in college, a calico named Kat, and three guinea pigs.

My next adventure is sharing my life with a dog, once I get all my ducks in a row.

Oh, I am very sorry to hear that. At least she has a loving home with you. I will pray for her health and longevity.

I have never seen a pit bull in person, but they look adorable and I have read that contrary to common misconception they are really sweet dogs.

They are. Any dog can be made mean and aggressive if you abuse it enough.

We've got one calico that we adopted from some people that couldn't take care of her anymore.

She's the cutest thing ever.

I've known a number of pits, and yes. They are sweet natured, but as with all dogs, respect their space and if they walk away and go lay down elsewhere, leave them be.

That's important, you're going to want your ducks and the new dog to get along.




I can't believe you all let that be...
"...I have been gravely disappointed with the white moderate. I have almost reached the regrettable conclusion that the Negro's great stumbling block in the stride toward freedom is not the White Citizen's Council-er or the Ku Klux Klanner, but the white moderate who is more devoted to "order" than to justice; who prefers a negative peace which is the absence of tension to a positive peace which is the presence of justice; who constantly says "I agree with you in the goal you seek, but I can't agree with your methods of direct action;" who paternalistically feels he can set the timetable for another man's freedom; who lives by the myth of time and who constantly advises the Negro to wait until a "more convenient season." -MLK Jr.

One cat. Sparkles (kid named her).

Get a herding dog. It can help get them in a row.

I don't ACTUALLY have ducks... I meant I'm in the process of 1) getting a recommendation for a vet 2) investigating pet health insurance 3) getting recommendations for a reliable dog walker for while I am at work 4) finding an accredited breeder 5) getting a dog trainer that can teach me and the pup using positive reinforcement, 6) getting an estimate for upgrading the fencing in the back yard.

My female dog, Belle, is a Staffordshire Bull Terrier. Being a shelter fog, we don't know what she's crossed with. She's currently having surgery as she has an overgrown skin tag on her paw which needs to be removed.

She's an absolute glutton!

The human foot in the photo is mine. We called her "Belle" because my mum loves peanuts, and in the comic strip, "Belle" is one of Snoopy's sisters
