Pets you own

What critters do you lay claim to? I have two dogs, two cats, a business of ferrets, a parrot, a ball python, and a curly haired tarantula.

I have a Betta fish and a Syrian hamster, which is probably as close as I can get to having a dog with my parents around. I've always wanted to have rats and snakes, though I wouldn't be crazy enough to have them both at the same time.

Well, I was going to adopt my sister's cat, but she's probably going to break up with the guy with the kid with the allergies. I would love a spider, lizard, mouse (I'd name him Skinner <3), or snake. I once owned a fish I brought back from the dead, but Dr. Joseph Bell died again the next day. Oh, and my first sort of pet was a slug, named Sluggy.

I have a cat.

And a fishtank with tetras, cory cats, a pleco, a betta, 2 kuli loaches (that i never see), snails and plants. I'm not a huge fan of it, because it's a fair bit of upkeep, but a friend was basically forced to abandon them so I inherited them.

I have a Great Dane named Stavro Mueller, after a character from "Mostly Harmless" by Douglas Adams.

I have a Rottweiler/Border Collie mix named Robin Merriweather Banks, Banksy for short. She is a genius.

I also have a cat named "Stevens".

I can't believe none of you have posted pictures. I mean, I haven't either, but I'm at work.

I ran out of space, so here's more! To prevent nightmares, I did not post any pics of Spidey. Additionally I could not find any good pics of the ferrets.

Stevens seems a little...bitey but quite handsome.

I have a singular cat, which is good because he gets up to enough for two or three normal cats.

Five dogs, a house cat we don't let out of the house, a Siberian hamster, and these five stray cats who live outside and which we feed twice a day. One of them gave birth last month to two kittens, and yesterday the dogs got to one kitten and basically mauled it to death. I took the other kitten and it's in my room now, playing with some old pants, and thank God a friend of mine will adopt it and he'll pick it up later.

At some time or another we also had a little fox, a barn owl, this gorgeous multi-colored parrot or macaw thing, some bunnies, a guinea pig.. Yeah, we're all animal lovers in the family.

This is a picture of my little Westie. Her name's Poppy and she has a sore paw and she is not happy about wearing the lampshade thing, I can tell you!

Gany, she's super cute! My Shiba had to wear the Elizabethan collar once and he kept walking into walls with it on. It was kinda funny. He didn't like it either.

Haha, I know, sunglasses, they are so funny wearing these things! I feel awful for laughing but everytime she goes to have a drink from her bowl she ends up pushing it away with the damn lampshade, poor thing is so confused! I have it wedged in the corner for her now, but she's sick of it already!

Also, oooooh you have ferrets, sunny, that is so cool, I love those little fellas! I'd love to adopt one eventually, what are they like to look after?

I have a thirteen year-old Yorkshire terrier who I adore. For maximum cuteness, here's a picture of her in her Halloween outfit.
