    I had to take my lab to be put asleep today after work, it was for the best. She was almost 16 years old. She started to have alot more seizures lately and it was taking alot out of her she couldnt get up today.at all. I just wish i couldve had her all her life instead of the last 5-6. at least she had a chance to enjoy it easily in a fenced in yard with us instead of tied up, Its kinda strange right now cause i have always had a dog or two around all my life since a kid and i`m 53 now. ugh, We always say no more dogs after this one but all the ones me and wify has had found us.

    Does this qualify as a pet ?
    I've never actually tried petting that rooster

    Here are my other pets. I guess just a few of them. I've got more than that. However they're really hard to get a video of when they are trying to eat my shoes and socks

    Oh my fuzzy ears and hiskers, extremely cute bunnies ! They don't appear to be at all wascally. I stuck around for the kitten fight - always funny when you see a copy of your own pets. Those two look like ours.

    My new kitty , 3 months old. She was a stray that was living under the local school buildings in town. There was a mumma cat and 4 kittens , the other 3 kittens have been caught and re homed there is just the mumma cat to be caught now. The kitten I have is a female and has had her vet check, apart from having a bunch of fleas she is now fine. For a wild cat she sure settled into home with me almost instantly.

    She really isn't that big maybe cause she is stretched out maybe. The vet told me she is 3 months old after he examined her. She is a cutie and super friendly . Glad she has a home I guess better than sleeping under some danky and dirty old school building. :)

    Now I understand why some people are so passionate about birds. These days I work from home in my dining room. Today our parrot, Karl, flew onto the glass door between the living room and the dining room where he politely tapped the glass with his beak. After I let him in, he landed on the chandelier directly above me, looked down, and asked "watcha doin'?". Just show me a dog or cat who can knock on the door, enter the room, and strike up a conversation.

    No, it just uses low wattage appliance bulbs.

    He is really good at finding ways to get in trouble, though. We can't let him fly around unattended.

    A few weeks ago he was in the kitchen on the window. I went to catch him and he swooped down on the floor and ran under the radiator. I went to check on him about 15 minutes later and he was still down there. I looked and found he had got caught in a sticky trap for mice. I forgot it was down there because the mouse problem was resolved last summer. I freaked out and ran upstairs and told D. :ohmy8::eek:He is actually her bird. She came down and got him loose. Fortunately only his big feet were caught and he was no worse for the wear.

    Has anyone ever wondered about pet reincarnation? It's something I think about from time to time. One of our cats behaves almost exactly like the cat I had as a kid. She is all black but has some orange peeking through in her fur, the cat I had as a kid was orange.

    I lost little Emma a couple of years ago she was 1 year old and this new puss I have seems very happy to be where she is at home with me , its as if she has been in here before and she is definitely exhibiting characteristics that my other puss had. Not just cat habits but things she used to do like jumping up on the bed first thing in the morning and sticking her nose on mine when I am still asleep to wake me up to play with her. I mean this new kitten is a wild cat she isn't supposed to be tame at all but she is . Very odd. maybe she is Emma 2 ?
