What kind of pets do you have?

I have two chihuahuas, two cockatiels, one betta fish, and one outdoor semi wild cat.

I used to be a run a small time bird rescue, and had close to 30 birds at a time.

Three cats, all male. Brown tabby shorthair, fluffy black-and-white, fluffy tabby.

Two dogs, both female. Both black. Lab/Newfoundland for the big one, we think, and Lab/coonhound for the small one.

All rescues in one way or another, and all fixed. (I have young twins. Who needs puppies or kittens?)

Our house has five individuals: three (adult) humans, and two (female) pets:
  • one cat,
  • one dog.
The cat is a few years old, a Russian blue with a swatch of Siamese. The dog is about ten years old, a schnoodle (schnauzer-poodle mix).

The pets have a mostly cordial relationship with each other; they'll sleep near each other but never quite touching. In the daytime, sometimes the cat will bat the dog on the nose several times and then the chasing will begin. First the dog will chase the cat across the house, then the cat will chase dog across the house. Rinse and repeat. Gets the dog barking a little.

The cat isn't very vocal but she has a 3:00 a.m. ritual where she'll drag one of her favorite toys into the next room and then cry several times. I know cats are naturally nocturnal so I am sympathetic, but always too sleepy to get up.

And that's the story of our pets.

I have a Westie, a Scottie, a Russian Blue Cat, 2 guinea pigs and a betta fish at the house I share with Butch.

I also have a Rottie puppy who is 11 weeks who travels with me between the house I share with Butch and Murf's house.

Wow I sound like an animal hoarder...lol.

Sounds to me like a houseful of love.

We have two dogs - a black pit bull/boxer type mutt (that I picked at the humane society) and a English shepherd/collie mutt (that showed up at the back door 2 years ago as a puppy). But we are open to adopting out the fluffy dog if the right person is interested: I really only want one dog - and he needs more mental, emotional, and physical stimulation than he is getting from us - but he has a home here until we find him a new one - and he LOVES my primary dog and chasing deer on his 250 foot run. (I'm hoping that Lotus and TT will take him once their current dog - who is old and sick - is gone.)

MrS has a cat - a black domestic short-hair (also from the humane society).

I also have a snake - a Brazilian Rainbow Boa that used to be Dude's (via an ex-girlfriend's kid?).

Lotus has a Boston Terrier rescue (was supposed to be a "hospice foster" but dog is still alive) and two cats. (She lost her other Boston Terrier rescue and one of her cats in the time that we have known her.)

Lotus is planning on chickens next, MrS wants rabbits, and I want a goat...but those are more livestock than pets.

Dude doesn't want pets (or livestock) but does want a garden (which I don't - spent way too much of my youth weeding and mulching to enjoy that now) - so he shares that interest with Lotus (who has a large garden at her house) and he has plowed up a good portion of our front yard for his.

PS. Our last dog and cat were also black - there is an idea that they are less photogenic and less adoptable...

I was lucky enough to have two Boston Terrier rescues. They are great dogs! I miss having them around.
