I've already seen/posted in the dogs thread, but not everyone has a dog!
So, I'm wondering...what pets do you have?
(apologies if there's another big thread about this, I haven't seen it)
I've got a few critters around the house. 1 dog, 2 cats, and as of now, 3 lizards (bearded dragon and 2 baby chameleons). Here we go!
This is Frank! Cat 1...he's a fickle little bastard. Very skittish, but super loving and actually wanting attention from me right now. He'll rub up against your legs and then immediately run away.
Sylvester! He's Frank's brother. He's the polar opposite of Frank. If you lie down on the bed face-down, within 3 seconds he will be jumping onto your back and getting into the "loaf" position. He's ridiculously loving and always wants to be on your lap. If you want to you could hold him upside-down by his toes and he wouldn't care.
Pepper! He's my 5 year-old border-collie/something mix. He's the best dog ever. He wags his tail so hard that his whole back end shakes around. He is a rescue that used to be terrified of people but after giving him a loving home he is the friendliest, loving-est dog ever. I take him everywhere I can and just plain love the sh*t out of him.
Apollo! He used to be named "Mufasa", but as I can't stand Disney I decided the hop-based name would be better. He's a bearded dragon for those who aren't familiar. Beardies are very interactive and love to come out of their cages. He's perfectly content to just chill on my shoulder or lap while I browse HBT, watch tv, or whatever. A girl at work was having a baby and needed a mass-exodus of her pets, so I adopted him and spoil him with superworm salads.
Simcoe and Amarillo! (this is just one, obviously) I just adopted two baby Jackson's Chameleons...they're just over a week old. These guys (or gals?) are very temperamental creatures and I'm doing my best to keep them happy.
So that was a bit long-winded, but, what pets do you have?
