What kind of pets do you have? And what are their names? If you have pictures of your pets that would be awesome.



I have 4 dogs ... 2 bordercollies ... blond and white hair ... Charlie ((Charliekins and Sissy Poof)) and Max ((maxwell)) 1 hound ... brown, black, and white ... Justin ((justin wustin)) and 1 Chinese Crescent ((sp?)) ... grey, off white, and black hair ... Zenny ((we also call him, Zen, Zen-Zen, Spike))



4 cats .. all mine!

Jazzabelle ((mi loverly )) black and white, with grey. Called Jazzi .. short hair

Belle ... long hair, fluffy, grey, with orange spots ... called Belle-Belle

April ... long hair, fluffy, black and white ... called Apey

Gracie .. kitten ... short hair. ... black and white ... half Siamese ((ears and eyes)) I found her on the street, she was so tiny, and hungry, and dirty. I couldn't help it, I had to take her home. It was funny when I got home. I yelled for my parents, and they came running thinking there was an accident. I was crying for the poor kitty. Now she is just a spoiled, little baddy.



2 bunnies

Thunder Bunny ... small baby bunny ... black and white

Sparky ... big mama bunny ... black and white



and a few fish! not named ... tropical fish ... pretty colors ... blues, reds .. etc!

My personal pets are



1 cat, Yoda

1 iguana, Iggy

3 rats, Herbert, Sherman, and Norbert (the amazing $500 rat)



They are currently making me very poor, but I love them anyway.



My parents (who I still live with) also have two dogs and 3 cats

same here! I love all my animals. If I could I would adopt more homeless animals. But I don't have the money, and my parents say I have enough pets!

three birds:

- salsa, cockatiel

- raptor, cockatiel (originally my sister's bird)

- griffin, senegal parrot



one fish:

- masaki, betta



rabbits:

- juniper, mini-lop rabbit

- another rabbit who i haven't officially adopted yet. he was named tangeleno by the person who fostered him, but i might name him tamarack or sequoia. he's a unicorn lop, meaning he has one up ear and one down.



i also have another rabbit from the rescue organization here right now. i took her home with tangeleno to try to bond with juniper, but that hasn't been working out.



and willow, juniper's prior companion, died in march.



(edited to add picture links)

and as long as i am providing correct spellings, it's probably a "parrotlet." i've heard of people not pronouncing the t in parrotlet, so that's probably what you have.

did he tell you it was spelled that way? because there's no such thing as a "paralet." if you don't believe me, try google: parrotlet, paralet



if it looks something like this, it's a parrotlet (it may not look exactly the same, depending on species and subspecies):

also, just because someone breeds an animal, doesn't mean they're very knowledgeable. there are a ton of ignorant breeders out there.

we also asked around here on pricing and it IS a paralet, there are a lot of breeders and pet stores that DO know this name. and Jack looks nothing like that.

you should post a picture, then. i'm curious, since i've never heard of one, and there are no "paralet" breeders to be found by google (http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&i...=Google+Search).

*5 dogs

-Tess, black lab/golden retriever mix

-Rudy, Leonberger

-Muffin, Schnoodle

-Basil, Pembroke Welsh Corgi

-Lizzy, Pembroke Welsh Corgi



*About 20 cats: one indoor cat named Eugenie



*5 horses

((If you didn't know this already, my horses are my life. The first two listed are the ones that I do my shows with... they're my babies! I LOVE THEM SO MUCH!!!))

-Holy O Moses, Appendix (Quarter Horse/Thoroughbred)

-Skunktail, Thoroughbred

-Jus-Dun-It, Quarter Horse/Arabian

-Geppetto, Miniature Donkey

-Blazed Apache, Miniature Horse



*About 35 laying hens



*2 Bantam hens and a Bantam Rooster, and their 5 chicks



*2 ducks



*Conrad Birdie, a little bird of sorts



*an Indigo Bunting (our dog caught it, and with a broken wing it wouldn't have survived, and even now can't fly, so it's got it's own place in the house)



*We've always got owls, hawks, and eagles coming through our house, too... my mum and dad do work with Raptor Recovery (rehabilitating birds of prey for re-release)... and for awhile we had our own burrowing owl (he died of west nile the year the disease first came through Nebraska, sadly) and a Harris Hawk (who was transfered to a raptor centre in Arizona, closer to her natural habitat). It's really cool having these birds come through the house. We had three barn owls that we had in our barn's loft for about 3 weeks while they were getting ready for release not long ago, too.



I love animals

I know... horses are amazing... but you're right, they do require a TON of space, as well as money, time, and care. But they're my life - I love them! Couldn't live without them!

1 frog (Smiley, cleverly named when I was about 9 years old)



1 parakeet (Bluebelle)

<-- Maggie, female Border Collie.



We also have a fish pond with 5 koi and 15 goldfish (slowly increasing as people "give" us their unwanted pets.)



Our family owns a horse. Tundra, Norweigan Fjord.

As well as a kitten- Kici, black and white long hair.



And like HorseGal's parents, I work/volunteer at a Rehabilitation center so there are always wildlife animals in and out of my home. Last one was a skunk, but he was very very temporary.

altogether, i have 5 cats.

at my mom's house, we have:



Artemis (who is MY kitty. i looooooooooove her!! she's pretty and grey with orange/green eyes)

Polly (my mom's boyfriend's cat, a little younger and a total pain in the a**. she's brown and white and...well, a mix of colors)



at my dad's house, we have:

Witty (Full name- Kitty Witty Toto Pongo Wendy. funny story. I was 4 when I named him and couldn't decide on a name. we got him when he was tiny and i thought he was a girl so i named him wendy. don't ask me why we thought that. anyways, turns out he was a boy so i felt obligated to name him after movie dogs, apparently. he's black and white)

Alex (big, black, slow, and soooooo nice. eeee kitty! *hugs*)

Sorrel (my stepmother's cat, she's a blue...somethingorother. she's not very friendly and very hairy.)



I like all the kitties that are mine (artemis, witty, and alex) but not really the other ones, who are both mean. i love my kitties!!!!!
