Guess What Kind Of Pet I and My Brothers Own?

post #1 of 53
Thread Starter 
I have an interesting pet named Mr. "No I'm Not Fat" Stripes (a cat) - who at 18 lbs swears he has a very slow metabolism and is the victim of a too thin-obsessed cat society.

I have a totally obnoxious domestic long haired cat named Priscilla. All she wants to do is eat. If she doesn't like the paricular brand of cat food I've offered her she gets an insulted look on her face and loudly objects. If I yell at her she gets louder and louder until she gets her way. One day I came in from work completely worn out. The first thing I do is feed the pets, but Priscilla was pulling her usual 'difficult' act, and I was just too tired to play the game. I snatched up the hand hose on the kitchen sink and let her have it. Ummm...I didn't know cats can walk on the ceiling :)

I have a Quaker Parrot! Who doesn't like anyone to take him out of the cage. If you grab him, he locks his claws on the cage so you can't pull him out. He rather get out on his own, and after he is out he just sits there on top of the cage and starts laughing sarchasticly. He still young, but is learning a lot of new phrases, although I belive he likes my jokes, he can't stop laughing :p

I own a Black Persian and his name is MAX.

MAX sleeps 16 hours a day, preens for 3 hours, eats for a total of 2 hours (he actually munches), sits and stares, God knows what he stares at, (his bowl, the walls...) for I don't know how long, and is afraid the rest of the time.

In the morning, he likes to walk all over me, then he jumps on my shoulder, then stares closely into my face and purrs. That's his way to tell me he wants breakfast, hee-hee!

:eek:

We have an adopted an orphaned standard Schnauzer named Frayser(because he was found in the Frayser area of Memphis). After have a mini schnauzer that was every bit a lady, this one is a trip. He belches and passes gas and doesn't even have the grace to look embarassed. He is all boy...and my college sons just adore it. At 31# I have trouble convincing him he's not a lap dog... :)

I LOVE Siamese cats :) Actually, I love ALL cats, but the Siamese definitely has an attitude. I've had several cats through the years. We also have a ferret. Now there is an animal that will keep you in stitches :) And I can't leave out Snoopy and Suzanne, our sixteen year old Cocker Spaniels. We bought this house specifically so they could have the yard.

Actually, the letter A in the word cat stands for ATTITUDE! After a 20-year acquaintance with a noble member of the feline persuasion, I feel qualified to say that anyone who is kept as a pet by a cat should feel honored. :D

I'm the abused pet of my 4 cats! 2 princess females that fluff all day and hiss at my 2 wild and crazy males.

My dominate male thinks he's a dog...he has a leash and gets very excited going for walks around the yard! He's sooo tough he stands his ground with barking dogs...I keep trying to tell him he doesn't have claws and running would be a better option but he's quite certain he's KING of the WHOLE world!

I have a big red dog named Billy Biscuit. He looks like a red siberean husky. I also had a tabby cat ( until the biker-maniac down the street ran over her. :( ) Cookie (the cat) was quite a character---only 7 lbs. , house-trained (no litterbox, thank God!), and always on the wrong side of every door. She would sit and meow at the door to go out. No amount of "Shut up, Cookie!" or ignoring her would stop the moewing until someone let her out. she also had the habit of climbing up on my dresser at 3 AM and scratching at the mirror until someone let her out. It was a very soft, quiet scratching on the glass, but something about it would wake you out of the deepest sleep. She also was quite a hunter for such a little thing. One moring there was a decapitated rabbit on both the front and back porches!

I have a medium? haired cat (she's considered a short hair--but its the longest "short hair" I've ever seen!)

She looks and walks like the cat that Pepe La Pew chases after! She has 3 main passions in life -- men, chocolate and roses! (No she's not fed chocolate, but she will find it, wherever it is hidden!) If you have a mixed floral arrangment, she will pull out all the roses and walks around the house with them in between her teeth! Like Ms Don Juan Kitty!

She just loves our guests and personally (cattily?) greets each of our B&B guests. Sometimes she falls in love with a particular (and always male) guest. Then she sits outside his room and waits for hime to come out and play. If he should leave the house to hit the Alamo or Riverwalk, she sits at the glass front door and waits for him to come back. And when they check out, she's devastated!

She also has 2 male cats in the neighborhood that come to pay homage to the princess! She is fixed but these 2 always look in the windows, trying to find her! The one, "Ugly Cat" (honestly-the ugliest cat in the world!) puts his nose on one side of the glass, she puts her nose against his on her side, it's soooo cute! A kitty movie, yet to be filmed! The other cat (orange tabby, walks like a football player, no tail, missing one ear and is definitely all male) sits outside and meows until she comes to say hello. She runs up to the dooor, realizes it's not Ugly Cat and "gives him the tail". Then goes back to playing wuth the guests we so thoughtfully supply!

She sits on my head and "kneads" my temple when I have a headache. If you have a heating pad for some ache or whatever, she must have one too (or she'll steal yours!).

What can I say, she's my precocious teen!

(and not a little spoiled!)

I love your post, Lynne :) Your cat sounds like priscilla. They know they're beautiful and love to whip up on the boys. We have a neighboring ugly cat too, poor guy. First she'll whip up on him on our porch, and then attack him on his own. I have to keep a squirt bottle by the bed for her little 'middle of the night' jaunts. She won't take no for an answer either, but she doesn't stop to argue with the water bottle :)

My husband and I have two beagle puppies- Dudley and Bailey. They aren't unique, but arent' all puppies hilarious?

Like the time Bailey jumped off the couch into the window blinds because he was trying to see outside and he's too short to see out standing on his hind legs. I was outside with Dudley, and I heard this "thump".

Then there is the large amounts of time Dudley spends trying to find "that dog" that he sees in the reflection of the tv. He stares at it, and when it moves, he jumps to the left or right, trying to play with it.

I grew up with so many pets. My mother grew free birds at home. Dogs eabbits, hamsters, ferrots, guini pigs(no cats my dad's allergic), ducks to name a few.(She's still angry at me every time i cook rabbits)

I don't have what it takes to grow pets the only one i have is a wild yeast colony named Aziza. I caught her two years ago on apple skins. She's wondeful. Obedeient. Useful. Usually clean, although once in a while she trashes my refreigrator.
She has two daughters - Anastasia(lives at my mother's place) and claudin(my sister got her).
Any other kind of pet is beyond me. I'm the kind of person who can kill a plastic plant.

well, by default, i inherited a cat. He is a big boy - 7.5 KG or 15 pounds,(i believe).

Likes his cockroaches, dust bunnies and confectionary snakes. Will also eat virtually anything, including what is onon his owners dinner plate.

Will trash/eat anything in a vase, can chew through a leather boot and can climb screen doors.

we have 2 cats (Mel after Mel Brooks who then became Mela mena because he had babies)
and Moonshine or moonie her son.
She is so shy and he is so dominate.

Years ago when we lived in Louisiana I had a fuzzy mini lop earred bunny who gave kisses, played ball and had run of the house and the back yard....this bunny was really smart!
I tolerated flopsy's digging in the cutting garden....amazing how she knew that the herb and veggie garden were off limits.

I love to hear about bunny love, Shroom. They really are very smart if you develop a relationship with them. Mine used to sit on my slippered feet while I did dishes, hang over the bath tub when I was soaking, (he loved a bath) and was himself very upset if I cried. (I had just lost a cousin in Viet Nam when I owned Baby.) He ran and played through our apartment with the kids and was litter trained. We all adored this bunny. One afternoon Baby was sunning on our third floor balconey when a sudden basketball landed with a loud crash. It scared him so much that he flipped over the balconey and was killed. We were devastated! Even my burly husband cried.

Oh man, that's a horrible ending to a sweet story...

I have always had bunnies as pets. I had one named Patches, when I was about 8 or 9. It was a nice day, so we took him outside. He was alone for an hour or so, and I came out to say hi to him. He had been stung to death by bees!

Pretty scary...

I am the proud father of 2 ferrets named Loki and Puck and the proud stepfather of 2 cats Billy and Annie. My female ferret, Loki, was named after the Norse god and Puck, my male, was named after the Shakespeare character. And they both live up to their names. They are so mischievious and are little theives to boot. Puck likes pens, boots, shoes, and just about anything else that catches his eye. He hides it all up under the couch, watched him once even try to get a whole broom underneath there. Very interesting watching a 1 foot long ferret try and carry a 4 foot long broom. LOL. Loki is into the more feminine stuff. She likes to steal my wife's lipstick, nail polish, and thread from her sewing machine.
Our cats are also crazy. Annie likes to chase, not her tail, but the shadow of her tail and likes to chase the light from my flashlight. Billy, is a big 15 pounder who I call fatboy. My wife thinks that I have given him a complex. But he is a lazy pathetic cat whose only job in life is to get petted and act pathetic to get petted even more. As for the interaction between cats and ferrets. Ferrets want to beat up the cats and the cats want to stay as far away from the ferrets as possible. Kind of funny watching a little 1 pound female ferret chase after a 15 pound male cat. :eek: :eek:

Lol! Our ferret thinks our dogs backs are a bus. She is also a thief :) I can't believe the gigantic objects Farrah can manage to drag around and try to tuck away under our couch. These animals really are special. She loves to play with our dogs, but they're afraid of her. I worry, because if push came to shove I'm sure we would find her hanging from one of their ears by the teeth. The cat just totally avoids her.

I have two 5 month old dalmation puppies. Dax who has brown eyes and a solid black ear and Roo who has blue eyes and very few spots. They are sisters and OMG what a handful. I am still trying to house train them.... I had a crate that they are suppose to stay in at night but they spent so much time barking and whining that they now share my bed. This wouldn't be so bad except they like to sleep all sprawled out across the bed. I try to get them to sleep with my sons but in the end they end up with me. They are super affectionate and get along well with my children. Now if I could just get them their own bedroom......
