Tell us about your beloved furry, feathery and scaly friends!

I have a cat called Kissy. She's a five year old tortoiseshell. She's about five. I adopted her in March last year from the RSPCA.

    Hi @mel_4ears thank you for sharing this with us. How has it been having Kissy around? I don't have any pets but my friend just got a puppy called Toffee. :)

    We have a psycho cat called KitKat. We have wooden decking, she delights in literally galloping the full length, skidding to a stop spins round and repeats. Sounds like she is wearing hob nail boots

    Hi @mel_4ears Our family had three rabbits over a period of sixteen years. They are wonderful, funny, pets and every day felt like an adventure with them.

    I have a Jack Russel called Arnold. He has a lovely nature and is oblivious to any problems you may have. All he ever wants to do is play. He has so much energy - he just goes on and on, even though he is 9.If he wants to go for a run he just does. He will charge around the furniture like a puppy. I take him out every day as I live just 2 doors away from a nice safe open space, but he has so much energy he still charges around the furniture. He is my reason to keep on going, as I must take him out and look after him. He relies on me 100% so I can't let him down. He's amazing.

    I have 2 dogs, Max and Mollu, both are Jack Russell cross border terrier. Molly is very active and always playing with one of her many squeaky balls. Her farts are silent yet stink to high heaven! Max is more calmer and loves having a cuddle. They are 8 in July.

    I also have 2 Guinea pigs, Loki & Thor. Loki definitely lives up his name and is full of mischief, Thor is quite calm but gets excited very easily!

    Used to be a bit of a zoo around here, but most recently we had a couple of guinea pigs, one of whom was also called Toffee. They were an entertaining pair, but they've now unfortunately moved on and we're currently petless for the first time in years. It probably won't last too long though as my eldest is wearing me down about a dog. Must stay strong!

    I have a Siamese cat called Alfie. He's 6 years old, white with blue eyes. Thankfully, he's not deaf. He's an indoor cat because when i first had him i was too scared to let him out incase someone stole him.

    He's definitely the boss around here. My daughter has autism and they are the best of friends. It's so adorable to see them together. She chases him around and plays hide and seek with him LOL. He favourite toy to play with is a ...straw.. haha, he's so funny.

    He sleeps next to me on my bed and often wakes me up with a paw in my face in the night because he want's a cuddle lol.

    I very often think he's human, especially when he answers me when i talk to him. Just have to love these animals!

    Gorgeous pets on here.  We have a rescue cat called, Christy.  She is 6 and we got her from SPCA 5 years ago.  She is an indoor cat, is bonkers and definitely runs the house!  For years when I lived with my parents, we had 2 Dalmatian dogs, William and Oscar, who were so loving, but really boisterous!  Every day was different with them!  Pets are so therapeutic.  :smiley:

    We are owned by a cat called Tilda. Seats are available until you want to sit on one and she is suddenly there. I seem to the designated scratching post and her favourite pounce on toy,  until I think its time she wants me to clip her claws then she disappears. If I get up to stretch or go somewhere she will rush to get high and smack me as I go by, or try to use me as chew toy.

    Secretly though I think she does like me. Her favourite thing to cuddle up on is any of my clothing, which she deposits large amount of cat fur on to help keep me warm.

    There may be a good reason why my favourite pets are rats, but the girls won't let me get one.

    As an individual I stood alone.
    As a member of a group I did things.
    As part of a community I helped to create change!

    Hello. I have a pet I love dearly...she is Sophie, a white toy poodle. She watches me or her dad all the time....except when she`s gobbing off at the world through the front gate. But if anyone dares to pet her or talk to her, she`s off like a shot! We never leave her alone, which decides whether we go somewhere or not. Love my furbaby!
