    Default Your Past Pets

    How many pets have you had in your lifetime?

    I started off around 8 with 2 rats, they lived in a McDonalds tub (this is when their happy meals came with buckets and the toys were good )

    then we had 2 turtles, one was about the size of a text book!

    we had a blue budgie as well, and a hamster

    We also looked after 2 stray rabbits over a few summers, before I gave them to my school as pets (grade 3).

    and now we have a dachshund

    what about you guys?

    I've only had 1 Hamster, we gave him away because I was kind of scared of it. Now I have a dog. I've only had 2 pets in my lifetime.

    Life will break you. Nobody can protect you from that, and living alone won't either, for solitude will also break you with its yearning. You have to love. You have to feel. Horrible isn't it? It makes you so vulnerable.

    Oh my gosh, this is so hard. Before the cats I have today, I've had at least... let's see... 40 cats, 6 dogs, countless birds, fish, two turtles, a horse, 2 sheep, rabbits... My house/yard has always been a sort of humane society.

    As a kid, my mom was rich and had a huge house and humongous back yard behind my grandpa's hospital. She had all sorts of wild birds, mammals and even a boa, aside from her regular domestic pets. These animals were abandoned, not acquired in the black market. They were donated to the local zoo later on, where they got even more special treatment.

    I end up accumulating animals. Would have more but we are currently out of room. Over the years have had:
    4 bunnies
    7 ferrets
    5 horses
    1 escape prone pony
    1 pig. He was cool
    2 ducks
    5 dogs
    20 cats- and barn cats that we only see at a distance
    Drive a car, drive a boat, drive a plane. What does it matter? As long as I'm drunk!

    I'm jealous of the guys who were able to own ponies

    Oh! I had a squirrel and a chick when I visited Asia as well, I gave them to my cousins after...I think I was about 5 when I had them, but the chick was really cute!

    Turtles are suprisingly fast...

    Throughout my life I've had a lot of pets (no, I'm not an animal killer, just some of them were pets that didnt have long lifespans)

    -A cat named Tigger (hit by car)
    -A cat named Wookie (poisoned by the evil next door neighbor)
    -A cat named Shadow (my favorite childhood pet and the one I remember most, I chose him from the pound when I was 4 and named him, he died when he was hit by a car)
    -A cat named Ty (ran away)
    -A dog named Zorro (gave away when we moved from a house to an apartment)
    -I've had more than a few parakeets, around 8 or so, the ones I remember are Sammy, Squirt, Petrie, Ernie, Tweety, Lavender and the others I seem to have forgotten their names. There were a few of them that escaped when their cage fell and burst open, so I only had them for a couple of days...I feel pretty bad that I cant remember them though...
    -A mouse named George - died of heat stroke on the drive from wisconsin to oregon (specifically in South Dakota)
    -A mouse named Calvin (died of old age)
    -A dog named Pepe (gave away when we moved from a house to an apartment)
    -A cat named Opie
    -A cat named Fonzie
    -A fish named Poseideon (died of old age)
    -A fish named Proteus (gave to a friend because he was getting too big for my tank)
    -A catfish named Lloyd (killed by Poseidon)
    -A cat named Potsie
    -A hamster named Rizzo (got some sort of sickness that no vet in the area could figure out)

    I've never sat and thought about it, and the big long list makes me think I'm some sort of grim reaper of small I'm really not though, you have to split up all these pets over a span of 17 or so years....

    Oh Haggard an evil neighbour poisoned your beloved pet? How maliciously brutal. I am sorry.

    My parents had two dogs while I was growing up. One I donít remember too well as I was just eight years old when he passed away. His name was Bluey, he was a mongrel. He ran away on a camping trip.

    The dog that I remember best was a collie named Shane (Lassie dog) he was wonderfully energetic and intelligent. I was grief-stricken when he passed away. He was 10 years old and died of cancer. He had his leg amputated a few months before he passed but unfortunately, it hadnít rid all of the cancerous cells so the disease spread.

    My Parents still have his ashes on their mantelpiece.

    When I got married my wife bought an infuriating, diminutive Chihuahua that I was never a fan of. She still has it. I have a Rhodesian Ridgeback called Rhino nowadays and I love him as though he is my own flesh and blood.

    My parents had a stupid bassett hound called Cleo that ate the compost heap and exploded.

    Had a beautiful white German Shepard named Prince. No, he wasn't deaf.
    Also an all white cat that was a stray we named Snowball. Had both of these white animals at the same time. Just worked out that way.

    After the above died, adopted a great cat named Tigger. She died very young unfortunately. And now I have a black cat named Spooky.
