Do you have pets?

Do you have pets? Which and how many?

I bet there are more "cat persons" than "dog persons" here. :P

(I've made the poll multichoice and public)

Wow! Are you doing an eeeevil experiment with your dogs?

Just kidding, my cat is the "mother" of 6 dogs. Who says cats and dogs can't get along?


But I can see you're a "cat person".

Nope, my dogs are just part wolf, and were therefore subject to being euthanized where I was living. So, since I needed more room (to rescue more cats) anyway, I moved to where my doggies ancestry would not put them at risk.

I probably wouldn't have had any dogs at all, but these two really needed a home out of harm's way and FAST.

This topic keeps showing up in my rambles...I've been told on another forum that I have the pronouns wrong, the cats own ME. I suppose you could say we cohabit with three felines and make everyone happy. Oh, wait, no...that won't work. The Siamese thinks he's human...

Heh .... I wish my allergist agreed with you. I'm horribly allergic to dogs and cats both. Hence all the constant housework and painting and washing of everything.

I started rescuing handicapped and sick cats way back in 1992. The idea was that I'd only have them a short time, sort of be like a hospice for them. The problem was, once they got a taste of the good life, they just kept on living for years and years.

Not kidding ... my first rescue was only supposed to live another two weeks, max. I had him for eight more years.

I have one cat......and if I could find a home for him......he'd be gone.

Trouble is, he spits and howls at anyone coming in the house. Family, strangers, it doesn't matter. NO ONE would want this cat.

Taking him to the vet was an experience. He screamed so loud they had to sedate him thru the carrier. The first time I thought it was just the smells........but no, each time he's done the same thing.

We have changed vets twice. Neither have invited us back.

When alone with us, he's okay. Unless he's in a mood for a foot sandwich.

stupid cat.

One in-house cat (rescued stray) and currently giving safe haven to another stray and her 6 newborn kittens (see avatar image). When we finish our "country home" we plan on having many dogs and cats. When we moved to Greece (14 yrs ago) we couldn't bear to leave our 2 dogs - so we brought 'em with us.
I believe that they learned the Greek language faster than I did !

stupid cat.
My Morgan was like that for the first seven years that I had her (she was eight when I got her). She has calmed down a lot in the last year (she used to attack anyone who tried to touch her). She's still a hellion at the vet. The last time I had to take her in (she had a urinary tract infection and I had to go on a trip), they weren't able to clean out her cage until I got back. Then I walked over to her cage, opened it up, picked her up (she started purring like mad), and they just all stood there and stared with their mouths wide open.

The thing they didn't realize is, it took me at least two years of constant work with her to get her to trust me. Another few years before she trusted the other cats, and a few more to get her to understand that I wouldn't let anyone in the door that was going to hurt her. Now, if I could just get her to see that the vet is not her sworn enemy.

Nah, not going to happen.
