Pets!

She is just adorable! She looks so relaxed and happy :)

Major cat person here - I grew up with them, but went without as an adult until the Christmas before last. Then we went to see a lady about a cat and one of the litter just LOVED us. She's officially called Tante Marie, after the chef, but is just as often called Fluffy Bum or Kitten Face.

She does the "paw over face" adorableness, like Tigersox! Usually when she's sleeping and disturbed. She's very much an outside cat; we built her a house outside - called "Kitty Towers", it's a 2-storey masterpiece (well, we like to think it is). She likes to sit on the flat part of the roof and peer over the fence into the neighbour's garden.

She has a very human trait of reaching up to tap you on the shoulder if she wants something. It's always accompanied by a meow, and it kills me. Of all her toys, discarded straws are her favourite, and her favourite place is wherever we are. Even if that's the bathroom. :shock:

I've also had hamsters, guinea pigs, rabbits, and fish. I'd quite like to have fish again, but I gave up the space I had earmarked for a piano instead. Excellent decision though, that one. I love my piano.

    Aww she is so pretty. I like her face patterns. And her house looks awesome, looks like she really enjoys it. I love the little ear tufts too!
    That is Exactly what Tigersox does! She wakes me up in the morning by tapping on me while I'm sleeping. And at first she will tap you like a human A few times, if you don't respond she will use her claws a little to pull your clothing. And anytime she wants something like to be pet she will come nuzzle her head under your hand or arm if you are not paying attention to her and follows me around the house like a dog.
    She get's very comfy laying on her pillow. She just does the most adorable things. If you hold her brush she will brush herself.

    I have a few fish in my pool outside and a rabbit. I had an turtle but he escaped but we can't figure how he couldn't get out and the ground has a layer of plastic so he could not escape underground, he was an awesome pet named 'godzilla' :cry:

    Aww. Could Godzilla have been taken by another animal maybe? As sad as that is.

    It's terrible losing a pet in any way!

    The dog I spoke of I had when I was a kid was a beautiful German Shepherd. Lucky his name was But he just had some screws loose in his head and he would attack people sometimes. He wasn't abused. He bit me at three different times. Bit a few other people. But most of the time it wasn't his fault. He bit my brothers friend when they were wrestling on the couch because he was protecting my brother. He bit a woman who's boyfriend had worked for my dad & he brought her to my dads collision shop after hours to "use" his desk and The dog must've thought it was an intruder. But after he bit me for the last time he was put down. A Cop shot him in the head.

    Maybe he could have been taken by someone/something we'll never know

    Wow! That's so sad to hear :cry: I know from friends that losing a dog is like losing a very good friend

    It's funny, your first picture looks like something you would see on a greeting card or something!
    P.S. I love the upturned whisker on the left side. Haha

    Hah, thanks! I dabble in photography in my spare time, so every now and then I get one that looks decent.

    Since that pic she's developed a "****" whisker on her right side - it's like a corkscrew at the end for about 1cm, and then wavy like hair. So, so strange.

    I'm gonna have to demand a picture of the pig! I keep thinking a pig would make an amazing pet. Plus Marie loves pork and ham, so the idea of them running around the garden together is just funny to me. It'd have to be a very small pig, though. I'm not giving over my entire garden to mud.

    Here's my pig "Teddy". Not the best looking lol, but he's a good pet. Got him 7 years ago for Christmas, he's a kune kune and he makes an excellent lawn mower xD

    Are you kidding? He's GORGEOUS! Look at that face! That is the very definition of the phrase "happy as a pig in s***". How can you look at that face and not have a huge grin yourself? I just wanna scratch behind his ears. Awww.
