Do you have or used to have any pets? :3 What are/were they and what did you name them? How did you get that pet? Are there any behaviors or antics that make your pet special? Anything else you would like to share about your animal friend?

Do share!!

I own two cats, a fish that seems to be dying, and a corn snake.

Despite the fact that the cats are mine, I didn't name either of them. One is a 4-year-old F5 Bengal (tan tabby) named Charlie.
Spoiler:





The other is a kitten around 7 months old (in my avatar) who showed up on the porch one day. His name is Jefferson, after his father, who is one of the stray cats.

The fish and snake don't have names. The snake is because I don't know if it's male or female yet.

Oh, and here's a picture of my kitten who died some years ago. He made it to 6 months before having to be euthanized (he had FIP and was hardly alive, so he was put down as soon as we found out)-

    I used to have a cat when I lived with my family, but I left her there because I didn't want to keep up with it after I moved. Cats and dogs are allowed here and I might get a medium-sized dog, but I never want to own a cat again because I hate litter boxes.

    I have a bunny named Kenny whom I adore ♥ He's a white fluffy ball of cuteness with beautiful red eyes and the smoothest ears you could possibly imagine. He's such a playful rabbit and even responded to house training so he now has free roam of our bottom floor when we're home. Such a clever bunny! He's been getting sick pretty frequently in the past few months though and he's already pretty old, so unfortunately we're not certain how much longer he's going to last... It's a horrid thought. :(

          They're not actually mine but my sister currently lives with us and she has two dogs: A maltese named Kobe (after the basketball player) and a miniature yorkie named Luna.

          We are planning on getting a Siberian Husky in a month so that'll be the first pet that I'll own (Not counting the dozens of fish we used to have since I don't consider them as pets).

          Not really mine, but belong to everyone on the family. We have 3 cats. My mom gave them stupid names which I don't even consider them names at all (one she called Suzanna, another one Mexican, another one Mi Amor). I like to call them by Japanese style names, so one I call Nami, another one I call Neko, and a third one I call Maneki.

          My grandma has a Chihuahua, which I just call Chi.

          My mom's husband has a ferret.

          My little sister has 2 parakeets.



          the ones that visit me the most are the cats.

            As for me, all I have are fish at the moment. Well, they're not exactly mine; they belong to my parents. A dozen or so Koi for my father, about hundreds of guppies for my mother. The Koi are my father's treasured possessions, while the guppies are mainly just for decoration in bowls around the garden.

            I used to have a dog around the house named Jyan (he was originally named Giant as he was the largest of his mother's litter of puppies), but I had to give him away to my aunt because my mother didn't approve of dogs. I got him free of charge from my friend's neighbour when he was two, but he should already be an old man in dog years. Around 6 or 7, I believe. Sadly, he's now blind in one eye and almost blind in the other due to cataract and can't walk around without bumping into stuff. I really miss him..;_;

            I also used to have rabbits, but all of them died one after another. At first, I had a brown one named Chocolate and a white and black one named Panda. Panda died. I then got a white one with beautiful red eyes named Snowflake. Snowflake died too. Chocolate the survivor survived for many more years till she died of old age. :'(

            So, yupp. That's my history of pets. They weren't very long-lived, but I really loved those moments when I still had their company.

            I have two pets that I absolutely adore! <3. Both of them are plump guinea pigs who are a bit aggressive sometimes but that doesn't stop my love for them. :3. I used to have another one but it died because of lack of vitamins :'(, I really loved it though and I remember crying for ages afterwards, I still miss him D:. My two current guinea pigs are both female, one is a bit fatter and she has white fur along with a mixture of a lightish brown. She's really gentle and is so soft and cuddly. <3.

            My other one is a little more energetic and jumpy, they have a mixture of white,black and dark brown fur which is an interesting combo but I really love :3. She's a bit more aggressive but I love them both equally. <3.

            Can't have any pets at my apartment, so I don't have any right now. If I could, I'd adopt a cat.

            The only pet that was actually mine was a betta fish I named William. He was pretty cool. He only lived like a year though. I should've taken better care of him. :(

            I consider my parent's cats as part of my family. They have three: Mr. Fuji (had him since I was in high school), Midnight (had him like 4 years or so now) and Gambit. Ok so I don't know Gambit very well because they adopted him after I left the house. But I know the other two! Mr. Fuji is pretty chill while Midnight can be a bit more jumpy, but he's still pretty cool too.

            First two links are big images, just fyi.

              We have five chickens (we actually had six at the beginning of the week, but one of them got sniped down by a hawk, no joke), a dog named Darcy, the most annoying cat in the world named Smokey, and a couple fish. I only like the dog, all the rest I don't care for.

              I have one adorable terrapin which is pretty old. It's pretty easy to take care of imo, just feed it, wash its tank once in a week and you're ready to go!

              When I was 6-ish, I had a gerbil named Maggie. I loved that little rodent, more than any other pet anyone in my family ever had since. I even wrote a song for her back when I was again, six-ish, which I'd plink out on my toy piano or keyboard or whatever it was (I even remember the lyrics, ahaha).

              Thing was, she had babies unexpectedly, which means she must've gotten pregnant while at the pet shop. That's probably why I wrote the song because otherwise the words don't make sense. She had I think five or six babies to start with, though some of them must've been eaten/destroyed by her, because they just disappeared (and they were still pink and incapable of doing anything). From this point, my memory is blurry and I don't know what came of her children. They may have died or something.

              Eventually, I guess because I felt Maggie was getting old or something, or that it was just time for her to move on, I released her into the wild, which may not have been a smart thing to do considering I don't know how well a gerbil'll survive in the wild, but back then it was darn poetic. I cried my eyes out.

              Every pet since I've been really apathetic towards. I even got a hamster in my early teens or preteens, and he was kind of ornery. I didn't care for him half as much, I let his cage get dirty for long periods of time before I cleaned it up, and when he eventually died, I more or less shrugged.

              I sort of want a rabbit these days, but I don't feel like putting in the investment of time and money to care for one. Plus, I would really want a lovable one, but I feel like sometimes, getting a new pet is a crapshoot. I don't really want to deal with a pet that can't be bothered, what's the point?

              I have the best cat in the history of cats. He is lazy and spoiled and needs attention all the time and is deaf but has the loudest meows and is the sweetest ever ever.

                I have two cats named Misty and Princess. They're absolutely beautiful (Princess moreso than Misty just because of her demeanour), and if you'd like to read more about them you're more than welcome to search "pets" in OVP and find any of the other multitude of threads in which I've answered this question

                I had to leave Scruffles, my dachshund, behind (thanks a lot, college). I would get another pet, now that I live in a pet-friendly apartment complex, but with study abroad coming up it just wouldn't be the best idea.

                Still, I hope to one day have both a dachshund and a dobbie running around, despite the rather dramatic differences between the two.

                I've lived with dachshunds my whole life; I love their stubbornness.

                Growing up we couldn't really have any pets, since my dad is allergic to dogs, and my sister is allergic to cats and a bunch of other small animals (hamsters, guinea pigs, etc.). We did have a few fish, though, with my favorite being a royal blue Betta fish, which we never named.

                I do hope to have a few pets in the future, though, but am undecided on whether I'd prefer a cat or a dog. I'd say I'm slightly more of a dog person, but cats seem to be much more self-sufficient, and are much lower maintenance.

                  Obligatory photo of my dog alert!

                  Spoiler:

                  This is Sally. She's lovely and coming up to 12-years-old and still amazingly active. We didn't know what breed she was for years and years, just assuming she was a Jack Russell cross-breed, but apparently, she's a Plummer Terrier. It's not recognised by most kennel clubs, but that's technically what she is. Yay!

                  Many years ago, I also had a cat called Korky. No pictures, unfortunately, but he was black and white and an indoor cat... that is until we got Sally. He then became an outdoors-only cat, coming in to sleep in my parents bedroom (where the dog wasn't allowed), but then, one day, he never came back. I assume he's dead now, but I hope that he found someone to take him in during that hard time. Ah well...
