    They are grandma, mother & daughter.

    And lots of mosquitos called "get lost, you are keeping me awake" (life expectancy low) :D

    LMAO nice, my only pets are roaches that run really fast, usually followed by ear piercing screams from my partner, followed by lots of spraying and calling of my name. Should they escape her trying to drown them, then there is lots of thumping as they then try to avoid my boot, she usually wins though :D They find it hard to swim in pools of spray :D

    Ahh and we have a couple of Doves that reside in the backyard and coo to each other. Together with 1/2 dozen redback spiders and a family of small gecko’s that live in the roof, they like the warmth...

    Cheers :D

    None of our own exactly, but we've been "sitting" our daughter's dog over the summer and will probably have him permanently since her new apartment's not suited for walks.

    Scrounger is mostly-shitzu (probably a little lhasa too), just turned 4. Loves to be friends with everybody and everything, and can't understand why sparrows won't stay put and play with him. A huge doberman in a bad mood can be threatening to tear his throat out -- and Scrounger will still wag his little tail like crazy wanting to be friends. :cool:

    Yesterday he must have thought he'd died and gone to heaven. Once in a great while (every couple of weeks or so) I'll take him down to the park and let him run free, off the leash, for a while. And we went last night, and by incredible timing there were also 4 other small dogs there also running free and playing with each other.

    We had a beautiful longhaired Himalayan-mix cat named Rajah. He was 14 years old and last November he died of cancer in his lungs. :'( He was a very special cat, and so smart. He traveled with us when we would take trips in our motorhome. The only pet we have now is a Texas brown tarantula. Well, not really a pet, but he lives in a covered aquarium and we feed him crickets from the pet store.

    There's a story about how we acquired the Tarantula. Some friends of ours moved to Texas about 3 or 4 years ago and my husband jokingly said, Are you going to catch me a Tarantula for my collection? He's an insect and bug collector by hobby. Then last fall, the phone rang and it was our friend in Texas and he said his son caught a Tarantula on the road and did my husband want it? He did, and they sent it by Fed-Ex, in a jar packed in a box.

    I didn't realize until reading around the net a little, that so many people kept them as pets.

    Have you found a leash that will work yet? :D

    Hey, I'm not about to let him out of the aquarium if I can help it. :eek: Yeh, when I was researching Taratulas on the net, I saw that some do handle 'em and let 'em crawl all over. Not me!! Not my husband either. We keep thinking this guy will die and he'll end up in my husband's collection.

    LOL they must be a new breed then! (or have the skill to bypass the u.s. flight marshalls :D) I never heard of ocean-crossing mosquitos!

    I am owned ;) by one male cat named Samson.
    (And he sure knows how to get his dinner on time! :D)

    This picture is of Chieftans Morning Star not victoria. Victoria is an exact copy of Morning Star except she is bigger than morning star by a bit. I would not have put this picture of another dog except that you can not tell them apart . Actually Victoria is a lot prettier ;) Boxers make some of the best pets in the world, they become family.

    I have a cat. I have always had cats, and only female cats. And always strays.

    Cats are the perfect pet for a bachelor. They are low maintenance. They are independent, but loyal.

    I once worked out of town for years. My cat would stay home, and I had a slider open for her, so that she could go in and out. When I got home for the weekend, I could hear her collar bell ringing two blocks down the street as she came running home.

    And I have a theory as to why a lot of guys don’t like cats. It’s because cats are too much like women. Guys want to hang out with their buddy, not some chick.
