    Have you ever wanted a pet, or a certain type of pet? If you have one, what are your thoughts on it? How easy is it to care for? Would you recommend them to others? What do you think one of the easiest pets to raise is?

    For me, I've always wanted some sort of lizard. I've always been a fan of reptiles, and if I had the extra money for it and the equipment I would need for it, I'd like to get a Green Anole. I used to want an Iguana, but I feel like the smaller breeds may be what is more preferable.

    I've had a cat in my house, as well as some fish here recently. The cat I feel isn't a bad pet to have, although they aren't the kind to want to be held unless you get them early, and you definately want to be ready for what they'll need to live. The fish... other than one that seems to want to jump out of it's tank, you could barely notice they are there. For people who I want fish, I think getting an algae-eater fish with it will save some extra work of cleaning the tank, though depending on the size of it, may not be so bad.

    I also used to have a turtle, though, means when I found him he was still in the wild, I think he had trouble adjusting to captivity. If I remember right, his breed was a Red-Cheeked Slider, but it's been a few years.

      I have 2 dogs when I was a kid, I forgot its kind. But they're the ones I talk to when I have no one. They're trained a little I guess, so it's fun. However, I think someone took it and adopt my old dogs, they're kinda been sold by my grandfather.. And that sucks.

        Currently, I have four dogs. They're all small dogs, so it's not much of a hassle.

        I had many pets in the past, though. My most recent pet that died was a dog, who got lost early 2013. She hasn't come back since then (she always returns home), so we presumed she was dead, I guess.

        I've had two dogs before her, and they died.

        I also had a bunch of birds and three rabbits once. We sent them to our grandmother's for some reason.

        I once had a stick insect.
        His name was Karlchen, became 3 years old (which is pretty long for stick-insect-years), and all he needed were the occasional flies and bugs and whatnot that appeared in my room.
        I let him wander around my room freely, thus sometimes I got frightened as hell when he was walking over me when I was in bed etc.
        He died last year because he just got old :/

        I had 2 dogs, very sweet animals, both passed due to cancer. I also had a cat, she lived to be almost 20 years old so she lived a real good life, died of kidney failure. She really loved me and snuggled with me all the time, but she was a real curmudgeon. I have pictures of my cat and one of my dogs; the other died when I was 13 so we don't have any pictures online of her.

        Right now I have a betta and 2 african dwarf frogs. Such weird little animals. When I live on my own I want a dove, they're very affectionate I have heard.

        I have a cat. His name is Buddy. Hes an orange-tabby, and is insanely stupid, vicious, and lovable, all at the same time. He will attack your calf for no reason, and will almost drink your blood like a vampire when he scratches you enough to bleed. If someones at the door that he doesn't know or like, he takes on the role of a guard dog. Sometimes, when he really wants out and our big front door is open, but the glass one isn't, he'll run right into the glass door, other times, he'll jump up at the handle and try to pull it down.
        Worst of all, he's one of the fastest and biggest cats I've ever seen. One time, we were leaving the house, and we were going about 20mph out of the neighbour hood, and he was sprinting right beside the car O.O He stopped when we got to the top of the hill, but he was running at 20 mph. If you pick him up and hold him so that he's stretched as far as he can, he's longer than my dad's arm-span. All in all, we a have monster-guard-mental-psycho-devil-cheetah-lion. Not a cat.

          I have 6 dogs in total. They are all Yorkies.

          I have 2 at my mom's that are like 7 and 6. These are the really good ones that don't give any hassle. And, I have 4 at my dad's. One is older and he isn't much of a hassle. The other one is still pretty young at around 3 and she barks a lot and is just generally an annoying dog. Then, I have 2 puppies. I like one more than the other, but most the time I just wanna kick them to the moon.

          I'll be moving out for college this coming up Summer regardless, however, when I'm older, I plan on owning a Golden Retriever and raising it from a puppy. I've always loved those dogs and felt like if raised properly, they can be a hell of a dog.

                I have a rabbit, cat and a dog. I wouldn't get a dog as you have to walk them multiple times a day. You have to clean rabbits out and I hate doing that. I also feel sorry for my rabbit. I'd get a cat, they're pretty easy to look after.

                  I'd like any kind of reptile I don't have to feed live animals to.

                  I think of myself as a fish person, but mine always scurried away when they poked their faces out of the water and saw me, and that makes me sad.

                    I have an albino ferret with me, and she is bundles of fun, and always brings joy and happiness to my life. I call the ferret Kojofu (yeah, Mienfoo's Japanese name) don't know why but just love how it sounds like. My mom has 4 cats and 2 finches. My little sister has two dogs (don't know what breed they are), my grandma has 3 parakeets.

                    Every day for 4 to 8 hours I take my ferret out of her cage and play with her.

                    Two images:
                    She is staring out of the cage, always curious to know whats going on, I have the cage left of my laptop, when she is awake, I can pet her and make sure she has both food & water, easiest for me to add more before she runs out.
                    Spoiler:


                    The ferret is so darn playful, she can't stand still for a few seconds long enough to take a photo, me and the ferret.
                    Spoiler:


                    Have you ever wanted a pet, or a certain type of pet?
                    aside from my ferret, which are animals I love, I would love to have a Chinchilla

                    If you have one, what are your thoughts on it?
                    Bundles of joy and bring happiness to my life (I forgot, Pokemon does the same)

                    How easy is it to care for?
                    Most of the time it is, playing with her, giving her food and water. To be honest, the worst part is at least once every 3 weeks - cleaning the cage out, won't get into the gross details, but I"m sure you can tell what they are. Giving her a shower can also be a tedious task.

                    Would you recommend them to others?
                    Of course I would, ferret is so much fun to play with

                    What do you think one of the easiest pets to raise is?
                    I don't think there is an easy pet to raise, they all require lots of attention and keeping their living environment sanitized, they can't do it themselves.

                        I always wanted to have hamsters or rabbits at home but we have cats so my mom never let me have one. We had a pet turtle before, a terrapin actually. I don't know how it died. One of our cats died due to a car accident. It's really sad because that cat is very sweet. We also had fishes, but a bunch of them are dead now. We also had a dog but it was given away. I miss them all :c

                        I have a gray tabby kitty who is about 3.5 years old. He's mostly an outdoor pet though but still comes home a lot and lays around the house all day at times, hehe. I love him! He's a very good cat.

                        Though lately I've been considering owning a ferret or bunny.. but sadly the former is illegal here in NYC. >.< cries

                        In first grade I got a goldfish at my parish's picnic , but it didn't last too long. It died the morning after we got it. :(. I got a pet gerbil named Hammie in 8th or 9th grade/whatever grade I was in 2008. It was so cute and we really loved it. we had it for a year or 2 and then one day we forgot to feed it and it died of starvation. :/ I'm bad with pets. I don't know if I want another for a while. I've wanted a dog all my life though. I've always seen friends with dogs and felt a bit of jealousy.

                          I used to have 2 dogs at a time but we had to put one down when I was like 16 but the other one is still fairly young. I'd like to have a cat tho, but it's gotta be a cat that doesn't scratch the piss out of everything.

                          Currently I only have a cat - well she's the family cat... and by that I mean we're her servants. Honestly she is weird, she's a tortoise shell (the most beautiful you will ever see - I might post a picture later) but she tends to be rather... Siamese in her attitude. She generally doesn't like people (especially men) and will switch between loving and adorable and murderous in a heartbeat. One moment she is stalking me out f affection, and then she is stalking me to tear open my ankles. Still, love this cat even if she does manipulate me into feeding her on other people's nights just to shut her up.
                          Seriously though, if you know what's good for you don't mess with this cat. I've seen her take on a rottweiler x Belgian shepherd and win

                          In the past I had two rabbits. One died of uterine cancer and the other got murdered by my sisters. I have had several fighting fish (betas) and I am somewhat ashamed to admit I cannot remember all of their names... most were named after gem stones.

                          Most recently I had four finches - two zebra finches and two gouldians. They all died in the space of about a month due to various unfortunate circumstances though.

                            I have a dog, and 2 cats but don't live with them, they're at my dads house :[ love them though.

                            I've had a leopard gecko for 11 years, he died recently but I think he lived a pretty long life. I also used to have a few hamsters and a some fish. Also at one point I had a parakeet but we gave it away to a family. When I was little we used to always have kittens..being born in our backyard. They were sort of feral, but they seemed to make an exception with us for some reason and we'd just feed them and stuff. I remember being just a kid and always having kittens playing with me lol. A lot of them we'd keep and others would just go off and run away or we'd give them away, a few occasions we suspected people would steal them and take them to a cat shelter or sell them. I sort of wish my parents never let it happen and just had a few indoor cats, it's sad when you get attached to them and then you never see them again..

                            I think the easiest pet you could raise is a gecko/lizard, they do require things such as the right temperatures and environment, but overall pretty easy once you get everything together. You just have to keep it clean and change their water everyday, always have food for them and be sure to give them the right vitamins. They're the most adorable things, I really miss mine. D:

                              I used to have a staffy it was crossbread with like pitbulls and stuff but rusty died and it must have been a really big impact because of what I always name my protagonist in Pokemon after him. I really want a saimese cat and I want to name it Lion-O or maybe Jacques I dunno

                              I would love to have a dog, too bad I'm allergic.. Other than that having a hamster would be pretty cool.

                              We used to have a dog and two cats. I personally wasn't too fond of the former, as it was quite rude. The cats were pretty sweet though, but unfortunately, they both passed away when I was about eight or nine. Right now, we only have one kitten. When she grows more mature, we may get a bunny. d:
