As I always say I have a zoo at home. My children love all the pets and they want all of them at home.
First of all we had a dog, Doberman, her name was Dora. Now we have two cats and a couple of degu squirrel. But my son wants a snake or some kind of spider.

Hello, Virga:

We used to have Muffins, the cat, until she died a few years ago, and she was definitely one of the family, living in the house or outside or wherever she wanted to.

Since the kids have grown up and left home, and since Muffins passed away, we have chosen not to have any more pets indoors; partly because of not wanting to clean up after them, and partly to allow the freedom for us to come and go without worrying about a pet at home.

A stray dog appeared in our yard when the kids were young, and she adopted us and acted like this had always been her home, so we kept her (until she grew older and died). We rarely let Sandy in the house, but she was the absolute friendliest and best family dog I have seen!

GT :-)

Most of the above were our Kid's animals now we are taking care of them. Funny how that works out LOL

We have 2 dogs...

Our Cochise (shephard/chow). He's all of 30bs now, but he thinks he's 150 lbs and bosses us around. He's our old guy and he can boss me around all he wants. And Maja (our black lab). She's 95 lbs and at 3... she's all puppy. Her favorite toy is a blue raquet ball and it's her pacifier. Oh, I can't forget the roadrunner (no name yet), but he's adopted us and his perch is our mailbox.

Our house would be to quiet without them!

As noted earlier, we cherished our pet cat, Muffins, while she was living. And our adopted dog, Sandy, was a perfect family pet.

But now that the kids have grown and gone and the pets are no longer with us, MY FAVOURITE PETS are the outdoors ones!

Squirrels, 20 or more species of birds that come at various times throughout the year, deer that pass through our yard regularly to eat the sunflower seeds we put out for the birds, various other critters that we see in our yard on occasion, like bear, moose, weasels, and a few others.

About two or three years ago, we had one family group of deer who would come to our bird feeders with us sitting just a few feet away ... as long as we sat still. I almost had the mother deer to the point of eating from my hand, but not quite.

I think it was the same year that I had befriended one of the squirrels who would come and take peanuts from my hand to eat.

The pets I like best are the outdoor creatures who share our space, but look after themselves.

GT :-)

I have three cats myself. One is a plain old black cat named Shadow. Then there's Selena, an Oriental Shorthair. And finally my Munchkin named Apollo. I just recently realized Apollo has Snowshoe markings. I love my cats and miss the ones I had to give away before moving. I had 5 at one point, but it wasn't feasible to transport all of them.

GT That is so cool to be that close to the deer and the squirrels!
I love going to Wisconsin Dells where they have a HUGE Deer Farm.
They sell you the food you can give to the deer, I spent hours and hours and hours there! I Loved it there!
I would love to have a deer farm of my own.. LOL
Wouldn't get much done on my computer then though LOL.

Good to see you here Jason.
Yes, that is so sad to have to give away animals.. I bet you do miss them.. I am glad to hear you still have some to love and keep you company.
