I love all the rabbit pictures! It makes me want one so so bad, but it's the one and only creature or substance I'm allergic too. :(

I haven't had too many pets in my life but here are the furbabies I have had:

1. Bonita the cat. She was my mom's cat before I was born. She was a stray that my mom rescued. Bonita felt a little threatend when I was born and used to wap at me and hiss when I was a baby, apparently! :) she passed when I was 11. She was 17!

2.&3. Dusti and Booferd, brother and sister kitties. We adopted these two furballs a few days after Bonita died. Dusti is a sweet grey dog trapped in a cat's body who follows us around the house and loves people. Booferd is a 25lb balk cat who is terrified of everything but purrs constantly, let's me dress him up, and cuddle him all the time!

Ferrets actually make great pets but their vet bills are out the roof on some things, But i actually dont take any of mine to the vet as if they do have something severe enough i am able to humanly put them down with in minuets unless i know it can be treated and they can live a long healthy life

Also sugar gliders are another option to consider they dont need a vets attention unless its yearly check ups but they dont need shots

Just letting you know there is a lot of hear say about ferrets and shots, most people have agreed that even if a ferret does some how get rabies that because their body is so small they will die before they end up showing signs of it

I want a pet! My wife is terrified of virtually every form, including birds and cats. I would love a dog though!

Beautiful dogs, GWS!

Chip, I'm in luffs with Fuji. But I must ask...how does he get his water? Do you syringe it to him? I won't be able to sleep unless I know...

Well, twist my rubber arm, and if I can figure out this uploading deal here, I'll post a couple pics of some of the animals I share my life with. *thumbsup*

Here are my 2 - the girl kitty rules the roost in this household. She is Christine and he is Erik - named from Phantom of the Opera (Erik is the phantom if you read the book) and is the black one - Christine is the grey/white one. And yes, they do sleep all curled up together all the time.

It took Fuji quite a while to figure out how to drink from a bowl, but he figured it out somehow. He makes quite a racket drinking ... his normal grunting/snorting/golluming is even more amplified than normal ... and his determined drinking.

Thanks for posting your beautiful friends Shawn, nrstooge, and Firemoss. :mrgreen:

Erik only has 5 toes on each foot, but he is the sweetest, kindest kitty I know. Very gentle and loving. The only thing he does, if he gets bored, which he hasn't done since I got Christine, is shred the toilet paper. Otherwise.. no worries with him. Now, Christine, on the other hand is another matter. She is very lovable, but a bit too much so at 5:30am with her cold/wet nose. She is a nudger too. She worked on me from about 5:30 to around 8am this morning - my day to sleep in. Guess where she is now?
