Aww Tiny looks so cute, I'm jealous! Did you get to meet her yet? Really wish I could own a pet here at uni but the landlord is against it :( Plus it'd cost so much money that I don't have already, but still...

Nope, but when I visit my parents in Cali in two weeks, I will be able to. It didn't take her long to potty-train her (took me about 6 months to train Bentley), and she's very quiet (usually female Chihuahua pups are REALLY loud and loyal to only one person). I will post more pics when I get there though!

That's one reason why I want to move out of my current loft and move to a bigger apartment. I want a pet, either a dog or a cat. (or even a Ferret, though I'll have to shell out $300 straight out of my pocket to buy everything INCLUDING the ferret). Hopefully I can do that before Summer's end!

It's also a little expensive to rent an apartment with a pet. That's another $250-300 non-refundable deposit straight out as well, but what would we do without animals in our lives? xD

    Hey, I'm Cariad, but my actual name is Molly so try and call me that if you can! My favourite animals are probably cats, though I love any kind of feline, so tigers and panthers are a close second. I also love rodents, specifically guinea pigs and chinchillas, and I love canines as well... in fact, I love pretty much all animals!

    I own one cat at the moment, since I'm only allowed one animal at a time, and I've had her for about 8 or so years now? She's a black and white mixed breed. I'm having a bit of trouble with her right now though - she's really more of an outdoors cat than an indoors cat (my parent's choice, not mine) and we can't seem to get her to come inside, apart from eating. She spends all her time outside, in the garden, and only comes in to eat, or use the litterbox. It's worrying.

      Welcome, Cariad! It's wonderful for you to join in! Your cat is roughly the same age as my boyfriend's cat. She's a little inactive, but we're hoping to get her to become a bit more active since she's a little overweight. I know a few tricks, though!

      Congrats on your dog's pregnancy again, Joey! I'm sure it'll be a joy for her to have puppies again. :3

        So I just got back from florida and I decided to take some pictures and yeah. I got a few of a dolphin, pelicans, and of my aunts cats. (That's not all I got but for the sake of the thread, those are the animal ones I got.

        and if I could figure out how to upload more pictures from my phone I would do so.

        Anyone own a cat? I saw this post on tumblr and I wanted to share with you guys! This makes me miss my two cats back in Cali, and it's good to know that when they blink slowly it simply means they trust their owners. <3

        Hi Fletch! Welcome to the club. :3 Arctic Foxes are freaking adorable!

        Anyone seen the trailer to The Secret Life of Pets? It's so funny, and it really makes you wonder what really happens when you are away and leave your pets at home.



        Also, in other news, I finally got myself an aquarium! Bought a male veiltail betta fish, and it had added a lot of life in my place.

          When I watched that trailer, the dog who's just staring at the door waiting for his owner to return reminded me of my dog. She just sits in the window waiting for me to come back home from work.

          I love how you decorated Bob's aquarium! And I've heard he's a little bit of a troublemaker? (He was about to jump out of his home one night, right?) A part of me misses having fish around, but I have no place to put a tank.

            Hey, everyone. I'm brygarde/Bryan! I was a little hesitant to join at first because I am not currently a pet owner. Unfortunately, as much as I love animals, my parents have been sort of the obstacle to me having an animal of my own. My mom is allergic to basically every animal except dogs and we had one when I was very small for a while, but she ended up giving her to my uncle (who has 5 dogs at the time/7 dogs now-he rescues greyhounds). So, that kinda ruined the possibility of me having a pet while living with my parents. However, I do intend on getting a pet of my own once I move out. Growing up, I always had to mooch off of my friends who had animals and take advantage of spending time with them at their houses.

            My favorite animals are pigs, dogs, cats, elephants, giraffes, dolphins, and cows (just to name a few). My favorites are pigs and dogs though, with cats closely behind. My cousin has a small farm where she raises pigs (not for slaughter, but as pets) and they're super cute, friendly, and intelligent. I love them all, from the big, chunky ones to the smaller ones. If I don't live in a city area (as pigs aren't really allowed there), I hope to adopt a pig of my own. I'd also like to have a Pomeranian and/or a Golden Retriever, and maybe a cat or two. Guess I need a big house for all of them :P

            Well, anyways, hi all! :)

            Yeah, Asty. He tried that three times so far, even with the tank secured and closed. Poor guy he keeps bumping his head those three times on the surface. Apparently betta fish are really good jumpers. So it's not recommended to keep them in open-surface fish bowls. I was leaning towards getting one for him, but I opted for a 1-gallon aquarium instead. xD

            He seems to be really happy now, has been producing a huge bubble nest. I've been thinking of getting him a "girlfish" but I don't want to have to go through the pain of...well, you know...future fry and all that! xD

            Welcome, btw, Bryan! I love your history of animals. Do you mean an actual pig or a pug? (I have an uncle who owns a farmload of pigs in Mexico).

              I refuse to let this die! (Even though it's been about 7 days since the last post...)

              So my dog has started labor. Her temp dropped to 98.9, so she should be going on the next day or 2.

              Hi! I'm Spoony, and I'm a cat lady :meow:

              I have 2 18 month old cats called Eli and Sheldon - I've put a picture of them in my profile album - who break me from cute every single day! They are insatiable when it comes to play, belly rubs and chicken!

              I also volunteer for my local branch of Cats Protection which is amazing to be part of. My hope is that a job will come up at some point.

              Venitardus, I hope your dog is doing well!

                Well, my dog had a difficult labor. She had 3 pups at home, having them every 2 hours or so, which isn't good. The last one at home wasn't developed enough and didn't make it. So me and my mom took her to the emergency room. After about 4 hours there (6 hours after the last pup came out), she finally had a c-section. She had 3 more pups. She just came home about an hour and a half ago and her and the babies are all gone and healthy. This was her smallest litter. But anyway. Here is a pic of the puppies.

                  Welp, one of the pups passed away a couple of hours ago. It was lethargic and didn't want to eat or anything.

                  Besides that we have 4 live and healthy pups now. image.jpg

                    That they are. The rest of the pups and mama are all well.

                      So here is a picture of the puppies now. All healthy and almost a week old! Tomorrow one of the blacks and the white boy are a week, and on Saturday the other 2 are a week. They're growing up fast. In another week, week and a half they should be opening their eyes and starting to wobble (walk). It's probably the cutest thing ever.

                      Oh my gosh too cute!

                      It must be amazing to watch them grow!

                        Yeah it's pretty neat to watch them grow up from little tiny things to little terrors that then go off to new homes.

                        Nice to see that the pups are doing well, despite the difficult labor your dog had to go through!

                        A couple of days ago, my landlord's brother rescued a kitten from a tree. It looked extremely helpless and malnourished, so he's mostly taking care of it. It's a brown-white tabby, and very adorable. Hopefully I'll take some pictures of it really soon. :3

                        I don't suppose anyone has any tips on hypo-allergenic pets? My mum's allergic to dogs but really wants one as a pet, so we've looked into it quite a bit but they seem so expensive with no real guarantee of working out... has anyone been through this situation and found a good answer?

                          Dogs with hair as opposed to fur are hypoallergenic, but you have to keep their hair trimmed, because they don't shed. It can be expensive.

                          I don't recall anyone being allergic to reptiles. Leopard geckos are the CUTEST!

                            Well, the pups are 5, almost 6 weeks old (this Saturday) and 2 will be going home this weekend. Another will be going home next week on Friday. (The lady has to pay him off.) Now we only have one more to sell, which is the yellow (tan looking) girl.
