    3 dogs and 10 chickens. The chickens all have names, but I have been known to eat one.

    From The Cat thread

    I got a cat who ran away for a month, in that month I got a kitten given to me by a dear friend who saw me looking for my new cat, catch a look a like missing cat/reunite that cat - so she got me a kitten; then a week later my cat was found and it is my cat, micro chip and all...
    I went from 0 pets to a cat for 4 minutes to a kitten for a week to finding my new cat and having a new cat get used to my new kitten and vice versa.

    I have Felis Catus aka the House Cat, two of them, a neutered 2 year old tom cat and an 11 week old she cat kitten. They seem to get on fine. Having them both around is good for both of them in my opinion; He teaches her cat stuff, he's got another cat to play with/she's got another cat to play with...It's all good.
    He's a ragdoll mix cat, she's a siamese mix cat.
    Both black cats basically though the kitten is actually black and brown tabby, she can pass for a black cat, especially at night, anytime the sun or lights aren't on her basically. - That was kind've a coincidence that I ended up with 2 black cats.
    I once had a short haired big black tom cat I loved growing up (among other cats I knew and loved too)... so, having these two cats being both black, is a coincident. They're going to be outdoor access cats, both of them, and I plan to release them around October time anyway, just in time for Halloween too. (Coincident again too)

    Pet sitting my friend's pets at mine while my friend's in Latvia for a week.
    I'm sitting 2 rabbits my cats (cat and kitten) love looking at, and an energetic waiting for stud fox faced orange Pomeranian; I've started letting my new cat out recently before my friend's pets arrived and now the dog's here (the rabbits are inside rabbits), my cat sticks to the garden more and roams less, which was the opposite to what I thought would happen.

    One cat, one dog and a 30 gallon aquarium and a 150 gallon outdoor pond. I was feeding my friends feral cats at his house for years. One evening I sat to drink a beer and saw a coon come bulldoze them off the food so i set a live trap (all these ferals know about that trap, how they were fixed)

    Sure enough, next morning I have an angry coon in the trap. I tossed it onto my bicycle trailer and took it 2 miles away and released it. I was worried what it would do when I opened the trap door, it just took off in a beeline.

    I adopted my cat in late June, he got out, couldn't catch him, couldn't find him; I went to a charitable organisation in my country (UK) who work for the welfare of house cats... They loaned me a trap needing only a credit card in case I didn't come back with it; I used it to catch a lost cat about a mile away I thought was my lost cat until the vet scanned the micro chip and it was another lost cat (so the vet retained it and called its real owners who claimed the cat). My friend got me a kitten that night and a week later my cat was found about a mile away in another direction. I returned the trap I used to find that other lost cat who looked like mine. The people who loaned me the trap at the cat charity told me about urban foxes getting caught in them or other cats and they said; if it traps a big tom cat who isn't my cat or a fox... Wash it out so their scent doesn't deter the target cat. I never caught any animal I didn't think was my cat.

    I have one cat. Most gentle and loving creature I've ever had, even the vet remarked on how easy she is to work with. She's old and sleeps most of her time.

    Yet she can still jump 8 feet from a solid sleep and come up with a mouse in her mouth.. Animals are amazing

    OMG... I just assumed that you would have this sort of "dog"... - Putin esque, lol...
    upload_2019-10-6_16-43-15.jpeg

    Seriously though, 'gamewell45' it's heartwarming to know that the Commu~Socialistic blend DOG'ma doesn't fully encompass you; - in private life... I'm sure your Dachshund loves you despite your 'Communitics'... (What a tremendously forgiving dog)!!! S :)

    - & a Dachshund... really (are you trying to cozy up to --->



    We here on PF might begin missing the "Putannnnist" among us, lol... :)

    Much Luv for - SAMUEL GOMPERS!!! from all of us here on PF!

    I have 2 German Shepherds, one is a rescue and the other is a 10 month-old pup that I'm training for personal protection. My wife has a Yorkie. I always say that's it's my wife's dog because I don't want to lose my man-card. :)

    I miss my boxer. Rowdy was the perfect dog, except for the fear of loud noises. He wasn't mean around strangers, but if a stranger walked in the door, he would stand between me and them. He only growled at one person. The new neighbor ended up having 17 arrests on his record, convicted of possession of drugs with intent to sell, 2 domestic violence convictions with 2 different former partners, 2 name changes, and was living on a "slip and fall" lawsuit. He came here from California. 18 neighbors testified against him in civil court and when he sold his home, he had a restraining order on him to keep him out of our neighborhood. I really miss that dog.

    I have a half mutt (probably retriever type dog) and half Aussie. Looks like a retriever acts like an aussie. Smartest dog and the sweetest most people loving dog I've ever had. Not sweet with strangers...but doesnt take long where they aren't strangers anymore. She shore got personality.

    Just bought 11 swamp crayfish. Put them in a tank 93inches long and 12 inches deep. 18 inches wide. About 80 gallon. Got another 40 gal with guppies. It was originally a critter cage. It needs a scavenger or two.

    I fostered for Sheltie rescue and adopted a few. Without a fenced in yard they would only allow us to adopt seniors or those with other issues. After losing four of them in four years, two just last year we decided for the first time in 25 years to get puppies. We got Heartly in Dec. A month later while checking the breeder's website for someone else interested we noticed Heartly had one sibling still unsold. The breeder knocked off $300 so Ginger has joined the crew.

    They turned four months on Feb 22. Here's Heartly.
