    Pets?

    How many out there have pets? If so, what kind?

    I have 2 dogs, three cats...the littlest cat runs the household, with all the others bowing (and bow-wowing) to her fierceness... :hail::icon_ devil:

    I also have a couple dust bunnies under my desk...:icon_eek:

    Dog person here! I love my little mutts. Well mine in a way, but my GF's since they were a gift to her from me. We also have a nice annoying Cockatiel too.

    We have a Rhodesian Ridgeback that is big and lazy and sheds everywhere. Then we have a little Schipperke that is a real B if you know what I mean. She pees on the floor purposely. If we are in the back room, she will hold it ALLL day until we leave the room then she'll run in there and pee. Even though all she had to do was walk up to us and we'd open the door... grrr...

    Then there is Kitty. His name is actually Kitty and he runs everything. The dogs cower and kiss his paws. He is almost like a dog/cat hybrid though because he refuses to use a litter box, he prefers going outside and taking care of business. He even burries it so that saves us some trouble. lol! Oh and he is a badass, he always comes in bloody but he doesn't have any cuts or anything so I don't know what he is out there killing...

    I love my dogs as well- they are Shelties, and every night around 7-ish they put on a show for us as we sit on the couch watching TV...they have a play fight, which they do on the rug in between the couch and TV. Really funny, they stay on the mat, and try to force the other off. The male is twice the size of the female, yet she often times wins. She is slightly older, but uses his mass against him all the time.

    The cats all have very distinct personalities, with the littlest (the female) being undoubtedly "my" cat- while the dogs entertain us, she gets up on the back of the couch and "washes" my hair...:blink: At night, she curls up on the bed between my feet, thus keeping them warm. The oldest cat, Bob, has no tail- hence the name "Bob"- and is a black and white bigster who keeps the house in order, punishing those who step out of line. The other cat Piper, is also mostly tailless, but is a tabby. He will follow us around the neighborhood like a dog as we visit neighbors or just walk. He comes when he is called, and loves a good game of laser-pointer. He prefers to sleep in the front window, guarding his domain from intruders...

    Best part of the cats is not having to deal with litterboxes! They all go outside to do their thing- usually to the neighbor's shrubberies. :icon_ devil::biggrin:

    They're all spoiled, with separate dog and cat doors, treats for being good, and more...

    Isn't it awesome! It makes our cat have almost 0 maintenance lol. All we do is keep his water/food full and let him in/out occassionally and he is good to go. Oh and he required petting on-demand. The angry meows mean "pet me damnit".

    Used to have a dobe and a skunk, some other cats and dogs, but now I'm down to just my 16lb cat. He's a beast.

    I just adopted a cat like 6 weeks ago, damn thing is demonic. It buried a laminated picture of jesus in it's litter box and pee'd on it. That is the truth of it too.

    I think huge cats are awesome. Whether they are just big or even if they are fat, I think they are hilarious. Fat cats are cool.

    Not to be gross but if the tile is nice and cool then I bet that feels gooooood. :p

    Let me see if I can find any pics of my animals. I KNOW i have pics of Kitty but Max/Pepper I am less fond of and have less pics of. They are more my parents dogs.

    My Blue Pit...and despite what people think he LOVES dogs. Very playful and never has shown aggression to even the smallest dogs.

    Actually the little dogs attack him and he runs lol. no joke

    Here in AZ, its about the same. It was in the 50s & 60s for like 3 days and now its back up to the 80s. I should try that method of keeping cool.

    My fiance's father has a brown and white pit. He looks buff as hell like he is ready to kick everyones ass but all he wants to do is lay at your feet or on your lap and lick you and get pet. GREAT dog.

    Prince, my male Sheltie, has a penchant for laying under the AC vents on his back, looking an awful lot like roadkill...our alert to each other is "Dead Dog! Dead Dog!"

    Our cats like to lay on the bed in front of the window unit in the summer. They fight for it. In winter, they ALL like to get on the bed. Not that the wife and I mind in the winter...

    We have Uno - American Eskimo mini. Weighs about 25 pounds and is cool as long as the kids don't get him all riled up.
