Re: How many pets do you have?

I have 5.
3 cats, Martin, Minnie (both 2 years old) and Jeffrey (1). Although Jeff would disagree here, as he thinks he is a dog.
2 dogs, Moustique and Freya, both 2. Here is their birthday party:

Re: How many pets do you have?

Beautiful pets! I love that so many of us are multi pet people

Liajoe: keep your hopes up, my husband was very much allergic when he as a child towards cats. When we started dating 6 years ago he met my family's cats and realized he didn't have a reaction, allergies can change over the years. A month later he adopted two cats haha.

Re: How many pets do you have?

Oh, wow, thank you FSOWife.

That sounds promising! Will talk to him, since I know he grew up with many pets, including cats but he say's the were out a lot.
Basically, he begins to sneeze, plugged nose and itchy eyes if he holds them for or has them very close to him for too long...

We are waiting now for the newest family member, in January, our first baby! So, new furry pets will added later on!

Great post

Re: How many pets do you have?

Only 2 at the moment. One of our rescued cats stayed with neighbours in the UK (her choice - she couldn't stand our constant coming and going to CH in the 'interim' period - gosh how we miss our Silky). A very old dog, Gatsby- found by friends by the roadside - then adopted by us, about 14 years old, Alsation/Berger de Beauce mix. And Pudding, a very old chubby grey and white cat, found by people by the Motorway M1/M69 junction in the UK, with Silky and 10 kittens - no holes in box, taped up with strong packing tape. She loves it here- in and out all the time, and loves to be top boss as Silky (much smaller) was domineering.

With daughters in Tenerife and Surrey, with grand-children- they will sadly be the last perhaps when they leave us. Cannot imagine not having pets - and yet.

Re: How many pets do you have?

We have 12 cats and 11 of them were home less before they adopted us.
We live in the green and all of the cats can wander in and out at every time of the day.



This is what happens when it is bad weather and one leaves the bedroom door open.

Where do YOU sleep Big M?

Golly they are cute! Bravo for rescuing them. I know many disagree here, but I could never ever have a dog/cat/pet from a breeder when 1000s are homeless and suffering.

Re: How many pets do you have?

I am now a pet owner, after getting my two furry monsters yesterday.....3 month old grey/white kittens from a farm.

I had to climb a mountain (in total took about 4 1/2 hours........am not a mountain goat and am still getting over a cold so my lungs weren't working best and my shins are still sore from my little accident when I went back home to NZ...who knew shins aren't the way to go going down steps ).......... get attacked by mossies and horse flies.......cross a field with giant spiders....and suffer one fall down while putting my hand in nettles. I thought we were on the way to Mordoor

Was it worth it................yes would do it in heartbeat as I am so happy having my furry monsters...I feel like I have a complete family now.

Photo to follow when they slow down hehe.

Re: How many pets do you have?

4 cats
Jack and Jay - ginger and white tabbies - brothers, 3yo. Rocket (brown/grey tabby) and Lucy (black and white) both 4 yo. They have lots of pets of their own as they come in and out all day and night with them; voles, mice and rats - some of which they play with, some of which they eat (except some bits) and some they bring in to train us to hunt. All the cats we have had were stray or cats/kittens needing new homes - we had 2 from one of the Basel cat shelters once.

We also have a family of owls living in the garden.

Re: How many pets do you have?

What sort of owls?

We would love a family of owls in our barn - now shared by swallows, house-martins and redstarts- but I am not sure if they would survive here in winter. Thanks for reminding me, must get in touch with an OWL rescue to find out if we can become a host barn/family.

Not exactly sure but not barn-owls as they are quite distinctive.

Re: How many pets do you have?

You all have adorable pets, but Papa Goose your chocolate labs are simply gorgeous!

So we kave our little furry friend Kazimir, the pony sized dog you see in my avatar; Kazimir keeps Henry, the turtle, in a water basin he can drink from; furthermore we keep two little parakets he loves to scare out of their feathers and last not least Alfredo the goldfish, rescued with the help of other EFers and his new bride Antonia. The horse we keep in a barn, though, not at home..

What a nice thread btw.
