    Do you have a pet?

    I've had dogs most of my life. All mutts. Not much for cats. I don't dislike em but would rather have a dog.

    Bigger birds like parrots and macaws are sweet but I wouldn't own one largely for ethical reasons.

    Reptiles? No thanks.

    Anyone have any unusual pets?

    Two cats - Tubbs (12) and Missy (5).

    I'd love a dog, but our house is too small and there's no way Tubbs would allow it anyway!

    I don't have any pets right now, but I will get a cat in the future. I LOVE cats! My boyfriend is more of a dog person so we will probably have a dog too.

Shes out there and ill catch her...

    neway my and my gf are getting a newt 2morrow she picked the name, rudoplth (or however u spell it, the reindeer with the red nose)then in a few weeks were getting one of the opposite sex and calling it mildried.

    the lovely bank people said that i could have a mortgage, so me and my gf are getting a house after christmas (my works moves office then to a better place to live ) and were going to get two dogs, mine isgoing to be a golden lab and hers is a doberman or something, cant really remember. But there names are going to ovual and eight. put it together

    I don't have any at the moment either, because i'm living in a rented house and the landlord doesn't allow pets. Once I get my own place (probably not for a while) i'll most likely get a dog or two.

    Three cats, one dog, and one ferret. It wasn't that big, but since someone else moved in with my father, with two cats of her own, it grew. KInd of funny to see the cat fights, but not when your exposed toes are at risk.

    Is he neutered? Has he been away for so long before? Have you tried asking the neighbors, checking local shelter? Putting up flyers with his picture? Was he wearing a collar + ID tag?

    Don't wish to put a downer on things, D', but Tubbs used to have a 'sister' - Crocket (we were told they were toms and Keith was well into Miami vice at the time!). Anyway, Crocket went missing August '97. I spent 2 weeks looking for her an eventually put a picture up in the local shop. 2 days later I got a phone call from a guy who had found her in a bin bag in his wheely-bin. She'd lost her ID tag so had no idea where she'd come from and buried her in his garden - cat lover himself you see. Turns out she'd been knocked down by a car just up the road from me, and a woman saw a load of kids proding and poking at her, so she wrapped her up and put her in the bin.

    It's sad and not a nice thing to think about, but I refused to accept that she could be dead when I couldn't find her, so when I found out that she was I fell to pieces. I hope this isn't the case with your cat, but please prepare yourself in case it is.

    Ok about 4 months ago we had:


    1 dog ( I swear he's part dingo..looks just like one )
    1 cat
    1 rabbit
    2 parakeets
    2 gerbils
    5 fish
    2 cockatiels


    Now we have,

    1 dog
    1 cat
    1 rabbit
    1 gerbil
    1 parakeet


    Fish died, gave the cockatiels away...dog ate a parakeet yesterday ( well didn't actually swallow it ) and one gerbil died. Sounds like a soap opera.

    my friend had a cat, cant remember its name, that had a nasty fall and landed on its head and was slightly brain damaged. You couldnt really tell that there was anything wrong with him except for one thing. every so often he would would around in a never ending circle, usually around something like a table leg, a chair leg, your leg etc. he was such a cool cat. he also had this psycho kitten that tried to eat everything and one day, one of our friends was down and decided to try and feed it some bacon. B4 we could warn him the kitten bit right thru his finger, right thru the nail was not a pretty sight

    dhtmlgod - I thought so (that's why that was the first question). Tom cats (those that are not neutered tend to roam, looking for females. These roamings are not very good for them. They tend to get into catfights, get injured and get all kinds of disease such as FIV and FeLV. They are also exposed to the dangers of cars, poisons, dogs and most of all - people

    I really hope your furbaby is safe and will be back soon. When he comes back, please have him neurtered ASAP. You can read more about it here:

    Just a dog...his name is Nacho. I have no use for cats, other than to turn them head down and use them as an umbrella stand.
