Do you have pets?

Yup. 2 Cats, a calico and a grey tabby.

Dianne, 16

I have a large yellow dog with a generous spirit and a rather neurotic pit bull.

Jill, 60

Yes I do. Three dogs: 2 cocker spaniels and 1 black lab mix. I could write volumes about the dogs. They keep me very entertained.

Laura, 36

A kitty at my parents' house, and soon I'll have a frog here. : )

Karen, 21

Two female rats, a hooded one named Penny and a blue one named Smurf.

Alias Irrelevante

Not exactly. I do, however, spend the vast majority of my non-working hours in my boyfriends house. My boyfriend has two roommates. One of those roommates has two very loving kitty cats. They're greatness.

At the moment we have a tabby cat named Albert. A few months ago my favourite pet in the world, Milo, a ginger cat given to me when i was six, passed away. We also used to have a cat named Atticus. Although we've only had cats, I love dogs too, but my dad doesnt want one! So when I move out I'll get one.

Gavin, 16

I have a cat; we just call her 'kitty' (she doesn't really have a name, but we love her anyway :))

Melodi, 19

yes, I have 2 kitty cats. I call them my children since I have had them so long. They even have little personalities.

Stephanie, 25

Yes, three cats - Gatito 8 yrs old - Jazzy 7 yrs old and Kiko 5 yrs old.

I just got a pug puppy named Milo in mid-May. That's him on the home page of this site. And no, I didn't name him after the dog in Homeward Bound.

I have a black Persian cat named Alexandra and my husband has a Lutino cockatiel named Sunshine. Actually, both pets belong to both of us.

Not unless you count youger siblings.

Eric, 19

I live in a small apartment now so i really can't.. my last pet, my cat, who lived with my parents and we had had for 15 years, died back in January or so.

Talia, 23

I have a kitty. I call her Munchkin.

Jennifer, 19

Yep--I've got a really hyper, energetic bird-dog named Layla and a couple of cats. One is a handsome orange tom, really mellow and affectionate and lazy--that's Nick--and then there's Java, a high-strung, talkative, fat black cat. These three are sometimes better companions to me than any person could be.

Johanna, 18

My husband and I both love animals. Once upon a time we were up to 2 dogs, 7 cats, 3 snakes and an iguana. Some are dead now and many live with friends. We were forced to find homes for many when financial disaster left us without a home. So, now, knowing the results of financial disaster, we keep ourselves to a more manageable level. We have one dog. (But we are thinking of adding a cat to our family.)


i have 4 pets, 2 dogs and 2 cats.

Becky, 16

I have three cats at home, darryl, larry and mo. I also have a dog with an ex of mine who's name is pepper. we kind of have joint custody. weird.

Ry, 23

I only have one pet. She is a dog named Sarah. She is 3/4 lab and 1/4cocker spaniel. I am a pet lover even though I only have 1 pet. If you only have one pet you can pay a lot more attention to it. Dogs are my favorite kind of pet. I do not like cats though.

Heather, 15

Yep. We have four cats: Toadstool (female gray/white ASH), Amanita (female brown tabby ASH), Truffle (male gray tabby/white ASH, Amanita's son), and Agaricus (male orange tabby). Yes, they are all named after mushrooms! I also have a hamster named Francois. We used to have chinchillas but the last two we had were both males, and when they died we didn't get any more.

Currently I have a bird with no name and a guinea pig called Tico. We used to have two guinea pigs Odie and Tico, they are brothers and really act their names. Odie was the stupiest by far, it could never remember where the house was (we used to let them run wild in the backyard all the time, we built them a little house with three rooms) and everytime he heard a noise he would run away.  Tico (like the drummer) was big, took care of his brother and run away from anything. As they grew older and terretorial they used to chase cats out of the yard, the birds they left alone because the birds would fit back. The bird was given to us by neighbours who received it as a gift and didn't want it. It never had a name and we never bothered to it one. I call it 'sweety' because I call everyone sweety. Anyone it likes to talk over the TV, fight with itself in the mirror, goes in it's cage when it wants to go to bed, bites your eat when it's food needs filling up, hits it mirror when it wants lettuce and sits on your shoulder when it is feeling lonely and submissive.

Allie Cat

Yes. I have an orange and white cat named Binky. He is very paranoid and jumps and hides at the slightest sound.

Becky, 16

Yes, 2 dogs. Princess Syrita (commonly known as "Sara"), who is a Yorkshire Terrier, and her male friend Clarence Oliver (only called by his full name when he misbehaves), who is a Cairn terrier. Sara is 13 and Clarence is going on 5 in October.

Angela, 16

Not right now. I've almost always had cats, and will probably do so again when I buy a house.

Jane, 60

Yes, I have two cats. They're pretty good company. I like the way that they each seem to have their own personlity and some things that one likes will annoy the other. They're interesting to watch together.

Shanna, 16

well, i used to have a cat named friskiss. but he died two years ago when he got crushed under the garage door. sad i know. he meant a lot to me - he really was one of my close friends - and i was devastated when he died.

Not at the moment, but after my wedding and a few months of wedded bliss we're hoping to get a puppy :0)
