Your little fluff-balls

Figured I'd start a topic about all the little fuzzies we own.

I have two cats, Bandit and Fetish, and a ferret, Bingo. Bandit is about 1000 years old and Fetisha is 4 or so. Bingers is about 11 weeks, and is the most mischevious little rodent on the face of the planet.

While we're on the subject, what do you all think of rodents? They're not for everyone (I personally adore them) and I'd like to see what you guys think about them.

Oh, and here's another one: what kind of pet would you like to have? I'm going for an Antilles pinktoe trantula next.

I have a puppy who I ADORE. Actually he's not so much a puppy anymore, he 2.5. but I call him my pup anyway.

I like all animals, but I'm allergic to cats 

My bf has a ferret and he is sooooo cute. His name is Chico. I never thought they would make such good pets.

I'm not really a fan of birds or reptiles as pets but then again I dont have too much experience with them, so I'd happily stand corrected if someone else wants to tell me about them

i have a pitweiler and a boxer mix whose boxer personality really shines through. they are great companions, but i have seen fence posts with more sense. to top it off, the cat likes to play the same game with the dogs that foghorn leghorn did with the hound in the cartoon. plus she also seems to display suicidal behavior. maybe i should take her in to the psychward for a few days for observation. be interesting to see what meds they would put her and me on.

I fall under this sterotype fully 

I have one dog who believes she's a cat, her name's Rosie she's a 12 year old, 50 pound bordercollie/ schipperke mix that was supposed to die two years ago and yet she continues to baffle doctors and run around.

I have a total of five cats split over two homes. Two are stray married couple (Magma and Cloud) who have adopted my family as their caretakers, and at the same house we have a large (HUGE) four year old chocolate york female (named Isis) who's the most affectionate girl in existance. At my father's house we have my baby: A mentally disabled six year old tabby named Jayde, and the new baby, a tweleve week old purebred Harlequin Persian named "Double Stuffed Oreo Cookie" or just Cookie for short.

And I have three dumbo rats! Two brothers and one of their sons (my mom bred them and we don't know who the daddy is). My baby is Merlin, the largest of the three who looks a lot like Scabbers from Harry Potter but with beautiful blue eyes. My brother's rat is Vector, a spunky black and white boy. And the family baby is Jack Frost, a half albino half silver month old cuddle bug with one red and one brown eye.

Growing up, I had scads of pets: dogs, cats, gerbils, mice, birds, squirrels, guinea pigs, snakes....other wildlife that came in & out. After I moved out on my own, I stuck to cats (apartment friendlier) & then started a 55 Gal. freshwater aquarium (lots of work!).

I'm now back to renting & so, back to cats, or "cat". Ours, is a tiny Devon Rex who is weird- lol. I think she mustn't have had a great upbringing & it's caused her to be a bit wary & quirky re: being held or sometimes misreading body language/eye contact. We got her at 1 year old & she's now 5. She can be a darling one minute & then ignoring/wedge-heading us the next. But, we love, love, love her to bits!

I have two cats, a black male named Nod and a tabby female named Rosalie. They are both active seniors and very spoiled. I also hope to foster a small dog in the near future. Hopefully the cats won't bully the dog too much, haha.

I currently have one one-eyed cat.  Every male cat I've owned for two decades has been called Kitty Boy, I can't help myself!  I would have many more pets but am limited for now.  I've cared for/been bossed around by rats, guinea pigs, dogs and chickens, and loved every millisecond of it.  I dream of having alpacas, so adorable!

Morning sun with Rosalie, who never has bed head like her mom, haha. It's been an eventful weekend for the pets, as I picked up my first foster dog yesterday. Teeny long-haired chihuahua named Augusta. The cats are not amused.

I don't have cats or dogs personally (i run my own pet sitting business so luckily i get to be graced by these beautiful creatures everyday all day long!), but i do own two rabbits (and i have fallen in love with rabbits as pets now since adopting after fostering my two), and now im obsessed. I also own a tarantula.

My boys. 

I had Milo for about a year before I ended up getting Cozmo.

The first week I brought Cozmo home I was not quite expecting all the turmoil.

Milo became very aggressive even though I was keeping them separated at first. There was a lot of hissing at each other through the door and when I eventually tried to introduce them to each other, Milo chased Cozmo relentlessly. I felt horrible for putting them through that. I decided that if by the end of the week if things didn’t improve, it would be in the best interest for both of the cats to bring Cozmo back. 

Oddly enough when I woke up on the last day of that week I was shocked to see that the mood had changed entirely. 

It’s almost as if they both knew what would have happened and all of a sudden they started playing together, sleeping next to each other, grooming each other - and now they are inseparable brothers.

What I’ve learned is that If you are bringing home a new fur baby, make sure you give them adequate time, maintain your patience, give all the animals in the home equal amounts of love & a little hope goes a long way too.
