What pets do you have?
Well im just wondering what pets everybody around here has..I love animals and love knowing what pets people have. I used to have two turtles, a rabbit, and a cat when I was younger. My cat's name was buddy..A very misleading name ..It was probably the most vicious creature ever. My rabbit was named Murray and he was a good pet..Now I have a pug Mugsly (named after the basketball player mugsly boques (spelling)), and am getting a pet leopard gecko in about a week.

Leopard Gecko, eh? Nice
I myself have a miniature daschund (small sausage dog). We used to have two, but ended up letting go of one after a few years. I was only 12 at the time and got really upset. The one we still have is really friendly and called Hapi. We got him when he was under a year old and now he's around 8. The other was one called Zuki (pronounced Zookie), and even after 5 years I still miss him
In the past I've also had Fish and Rabbits. There's nothing like a good dog, though

Yeah it took me about a month to convince my parents that Leopard Geckos are harmless (my mom is deathly afraid of reptiles)..First I was asking for a Bearded Dragon, that didn't work out. Then a Water Dragon (also didn't work out) and now I have downsized it to a Leopard Gecko

ive always wanted a reptile but never managed to convince my mum that id look after it and that it wouldnt hurt her . i got a cat instead. hes called Ronaldo(or naldo for short) after the brazillian football player( my brother got to name him ). Hes a black and white mog and sometimes i wonder wether hes blind, stupid or both! he's lovely but can be vicious my hands have the scars to prove it.

I have a 12-year old black and white cat named Max, who is very affectionate but almost as noisy as a dog. (When he wants something, he meows very loudly until he gets it.)
I used to have an aquatic turtle named Doc, but we had to give her away because she really needed a bigger tank and the the upkeep was already too expensive for us. She was really quite an adorable turtle but now that I know how much work and money it is to properly care for one, I wouldn't get another.

I've got a 14 year old big black cat named Godzilla, and a big mutt of a dog (probably American Staffordshire Terrier mixed with Dalmatian) with floppy ears & and eye patch named Dodger. They keep us pretty busy.

I have two puppies, Labradoodles, Ruby (gold, 9mths) and Chester (black, 6mths) and five cats. A Russian Blue, a Persian cross, two silver Abyssinians and a tuxedo rescue moggy. My persian cross, Sunday, is a rescue, too. I'm learning to be an obedience trainer so slightly obsessive about animals....lol
Here's some pics....

I support adopting shelter and/or rescue animals.
3 cats (minus 4 kittens we gave away after the mom delivered)
2 horses -- a 1/4 horse Appaloosa gelding and an endangered Percheron draft horse
I used to have ferrets, too, but they both passed of old age. I miss them.

We have three dogs, two cats, and a chinchilla. All rescues... but members of the family now.

I have two of the 4 dogs of the Apocalypse..
Pestilence (Dozer) came free off of craigslist about 2 years ago because his owner was moving. He was a little shy of a year old.
Plague (Brodi) came along about 6 months after Dozer, he was also just shy of a year and in his case his parents really cared for him but due to both parents changing jobs that sent them out of town...
Now I sit and suffer under the constant abuse and horrors that these little demonic canines spreed with every passing breath.

We have two elderly Siamese cats.
When I was young and crazy(er) I had two Chinese water dragons, an iguana, a banded tegu, a trantula, an emperor scorpion, two cornsnakes, a royal python, a small boa constrictor and an eighteen foot Burmese python. And around 200 tropical fish.

We've got 4 cats, a dog and two birds in the house. I'm a life-long cat-owner/lover but these 4 are the weirdest bunch of misfits I've ever shared a home with.
As for the dog, well if MASH should happen to come on the tv he will try his best to sing the theme-song.

I have twin teenage girls and cat I call Gizmo.
They're pretty messy and destructive but the cat doesn't seem to mind . . .
