Cel told me I should make a thread where we can post about our pets. So here we go.

I have 2 main pets.
Mr. Mikko who is a 2 year old pure bred Gordon Setter. His likes include peanut butter cookies, canned dog food, suckling blankets, pillows and stuffed animals, long walks through the woods, people food, car rides, playing with other dogs, sleeping until noon, getting his ears cleaned, getting his teeth brushed, and annoying mom while she plays video games. His dislikes include dry dog food, the vacuum cleaner, short walks around the block, car rides that last > 30 minutes, waking up before noon, most dog treats, and getting his nails trimmed.
Spoiler:
 

Tiger the Hutt
Tiger is a miniature hairy version of Star Wars Jabba the Hutt. Actually she's an 11 year old Domestic Shorthair Tabby cat. Her likes include eating dog food, eating cat food, ripping open bags of cat treats and eating them all, drinking mom's milk when she isn't looking, cardboard boxes, sleeping all day, getting hair on clean black clothing, and attacking Mr. Mikko. Her dislikes include not getting fed, being woken up, the vacuum cleaner, being chased by Mr. Mikko, and baths.
Spoiler:
 

There was Dearg the Irish Setter but a best friend now takes care of her.
There is Roza the neighborhood cat we all take care of.

Ruby the Yellow Lab and Pearl the Black Lab
are my Man Candy's dogs. And I see them frequently and so does Mr. Mikko
Spoiler:
 

What about your pets? Do you have cats, dogs, reptiles, amphibians, birds, rodents, etc? Any funny stories? Cute pics? etc? Talk about your pets here.

We adopted an 18 month old cat earlier this month. If she stops running around like a crazy thing I'll get some pictures.

We also have a bunny who's nearly seven. She's very bossy and cute. Very Happy= :D

+1 Palms! Clap

Okay so currently don't own a pet. My daughter loves anything fuzzy, cuddlely and kayute! Very Happy= :D
So I want to get her something. But I don't know what.
Thought about a bunny but someone told me that the clean-up is more effort then I probably have time for.
So any suggestions would be aces! :thumbs up:

I think they're still trying to figure out some stuff. Sunshine's a dominant rabbit and has only lived around cats, so when Krell passed away she started acting oddly. She started acting a bit more normally after a while, but the rabbit and the humans need a cat in the house.

I think the cat wants to be friends, and so does the rabbit, but it's taking some time. The cat's only been here for a few weeks so far and they're already getting along more than Krell did with Sunshine.

Sunshine is litterbox trained. I don't know how you do it since we got her when she was already trained and four years old, but I'm sure it's doable.

She's got an attitude though and rabbits really like their habits. If we change things on her or we do something to piss her off (justified or not) she'll go into a corner and pee. We have a few litter boxes around where she likes to hang out so she mostly keeps to those.

She'll leave little poops everywhere though where she hangs out. These are easily swept up with a little broom and dustpan, and are mostly territorial reasons and if she's annoyed (she has an attitude, our rabbit). Rabbits also have larger poops that shouldn't be lying around. The bacteria needed for a good digestion don't reach the food until it's nearly at the end, so the food has to go for a "round 2". They get more of the nutrition when things go through for the second time. This is normal so don't freak out if you see it.

Bunnies are very social creatures, and having one bunny I'd recommend if you were looking to get bunnies you should get neutered buddies. When Sunshine goes we were thinking of getting two siblings so they can hang out with each other when no one's home and cuddle each other and us. Sunshine is frequently looking to us for attention (pets and nose kisses) because she can't get that from other creatures.

Bunnies are really fun pets, but you do have to do a bit of research on them first. They're three-year-olds with wire cutters, so you have "bunny-proof" things and just keep in mind there will be lots of stuff that looks good for nibbling on, so make sure there are lots of things that are okay for bunnies to chew on. We have some grass mats and some wicker (I think) balls that she chews on.

She's wonderful, and I'd recommend bunnies to people, but they have to have the right home and the right people taking care of them, just like any other pet. Smile

If you guys aren't allergic to cats... they are the easiest. With a young kid i highly recommend soft paws or declawing. They are pretty low maintenance

Anybody scare your pets occasionally? With Mikko when we are playing I'll run away and hide call his name wait for him to come looking waiting until he's as close as possible... jump out and scare him. He usually just jumps bad and barks at me. Once he peed i scared him so bad. I usually can't get tiger but today she was walking in my room to lay in my closet... she was being cautious and slow looking for Mikko staring at a pile of blankets looking for him so i said "boo" she legit jumped all 4 feet in the air at least a foot and hissed at me and ran away

I have three pet kids. I hear the life expectancy is higher than cats and dogs. Razz

In all seriousness though, currently pet free and happy. Over the years I have had cats, dogs, rats, mice, hamsters, fish, salamanders and even a ferret.
Those things reek to all hell though. pale

Ferrets are amazing. I do wish they weren't so musky though. My ex had ferrets and they'd attack you and play at like 100 mph around the house. So entertaining.

They're toe-nibblers.

I don't like ferrets, no matter how cute they appear to be.
