Do you love animals? Do you have a preference or do you go gaga over anything with four (or less) (or more) legs?
I love cats and have two (Bert and Ernie) at home. However:
-- I don't like anything that doesn't have legs (i.e. snakes).
-- Dogs and I have an agreement: I don't touch them and they don't bite me
-- Rodents and anything else with constantly-growing teeth also think I taste good
I'm okay with small puppies, though... And I've been known to put on a pair of leather gloves and hold the small animals (rodents) because nobody else pays attention to them (besides feeding and watering).
In the past I have had:
five gerbils, Inspector, Darwin, and Midnight (in succession)
three parakeets: Lemon, Blueberry, Green. Lemon was the long-lived meanie!
one dog (Sandy)
two other cats (Abu and Francine)
and more than twenty foster cats/kittens (Pigeon and Mischief; Lucky, Diamond, Flame, Patch, Purl, and Tawny; Carrie, Blanche, Neige, and Leon; Kittle, Clue, and Bear; Madison, Baby, Big Girl, Screamer, Twin and Twine; Sassy, Gris and Midnight; and another Lucky) those are the ones I remember!
Anyone else love animals?
