Re: How many pets do you have?

Introducing Fiona!! She is much prettier than the snails and worms my kids seem to drag into the house on a daily basis. Most of her time is used for sleeping on our bed, sitting on the microwave and watching me in the kitchen and attacking my feet when I walk down the stairs. She is still young and full on wacky ideas which keep the kids entertained.

She has this weird tendency to not learn so well.... every third or fourth time the girls are in the bath she ends up falling in and we have a rat running around the house.

Re: How many pets do you have?

We have 2 cats, they are brothers and almost two years old. The one hiding behind the beer is Bassie and the one showing off his soccer skills is Adriaan:

Re: How many pets do you have?

If I were being completely fair, I'd have to admit to "having" only one pet right now.

Hubby and I have a cat, although shortly after I'd arrived, his mother "talked us into" getting a pair of guinea pigs that one of her colleagues was needing to re-home. Our agreement was that hubby would take care of them since I am very allergic to hay... alas, it wound up being me doing most of the care and cleanup so his mother now has them.

I also "have" a dog, which would more fairly be called my mother's dog now, since I was unable to bring her here with me.


In the following pictures is my Bonny-cat Featherfoe, and two photos of her with her friends Pico (the black and white mix) and Josie the Golden Retriever - two dogs who stayed with us when dear friends were away.

Re: How many pets do you have?

While not being a pet owner myself, I've always fancied a capybara

If kids count then adults should too, so I have 2 crazy rescued cats and ex-boyfriend. I'm happy to keep the cats.... anyone interested in adopting the ex?

Re: How many pets do you have?

We have a Jack Russel named Nao and a very special cat named Zorah. They don't get along together. But as long as Nao just minds her own thing, Zorah is fine.

In my avatar you see Floyd, my giant Jack Russel Terrier. We also have a cat that we got from a shelter when she was three years old. Lizzie is now 15 years old. Also we have three guinea pigs: Indiana Jones, Linda and Squeaky.

I searched and didn't find this topic. Thought it would be interesting to see how many pets, and what are they, we all have!


My husband and I have three cats, Fugitive ( Male and 5 years old), Ducati (female and 5 years old), and Oshi Neko (Male and almost 2 years Old).
Those are one of the cutest names for pets I have heard.

We plan to have 2 soon, A Cat names Axe and a Lab named Hammer
