And my Boys: Baby Phoenix and my 7yr Old Paulie--on a side note Phoenix will be 1 yr old on July 16th (sigh he's growing up) I love my quakers, Paulie is very smart, sometimes a wee bit too smart for me..lol He unlocked his cage and sits there pearched quietly watching until he's noticed..lol My mom calls him houdini cause hes one of those "poof, here i am" type of birds.. I also have a 30 fish, between a 55 gal a 20 gal and two 15 gallon tanks.

I am also a kitty-mama, with two fuzzy little'uns. Sisters, actually!

In the first picture is Alena on the top and Rachel on bottom. They're inside kitties due to outside hostile environment where I live, but they get supervised porch time which they love! They're like my kids so I spoil them. Recently they have gotten two kitty window perches- HIGHLY recommended- a ball in track toy you can rearrange the shape, Da Bird feather cat toy (it looks and sounds like wings flapping- cats go NUTS for it!), fuzzy blankets in their favorite lounging spots, mice with feather tails, and soon here they will have another batch of cat grass. Working on getting a catnip plant as well.
I also switched from Purina One to Before Grain here recently. I did my research on cat food- who knew store brands were so bad for them? I would go for raw diet if I could afford it but at the time I can't. Before Grain is a good brand and cheaper than EVO and Wellness.

Alena is more my baby- she's a cuddle bug and always following me around "helping" me with everything. She's actually curled up on my lap as I type ^_^ Haha, I also figured out on my husband's first deployment (when I knew no one and couldn't drive O_o) if you talk to your cats enough they will start talking back. Now they're chatterboxes :p

I have two dogs, Bambi, the Chihuahua, and Sasha, the Boxer. My family has had Bambi since I was in middle school; she's 14 years old now! Sasha is a rescue we got last summer. She is still learning how to be a dog and do dog-like things like run, play, potty outside, etc., but she is a sweet girl. I really love cats too, but I cannot have any right now because our house is already full enough as it is and I don't completely trust either dog with a cat in the house, especially Sasha. To be honest if it were up to me I'd have a menagerie of animals around me at all times. My mother has always called me "Elly May" (any Beverly Hillbillies fans out there?).

Such cute pics from everyone. @Winged Mermaid did you know that cats have a wide range of vocalizations they make only for humans and not for other cats? Domestic dogs tend to be more vocal than their wild counterparts, too, and dogs have a smiling facial expression they make for their humans but not for other dogs. I'm just fascinated by the way domesticity has evolved and been bred into our pets; really animal and human evolution in general fascinate me.
@Lorelai that last picture of your cat is just stunning! She's beautiful and that's a great picture of her.
@MermaidLanai those sound like some pretty smart birds. I love how clever birds are, and I have a lot of respect for people who can keep fish. I find fish to be so high maintenance: have to get their water just right, have to feed them this not that, have to make sure they don't get sick, etc. that I prefer to admire them from afar. After our family's betta died I swore I'd never own another fish, but I sure like to look at them.
@Andrew that parrot is beautiful! I love that stripe above her beak.
Love this thread! It's great to see everyone's pets.

oh man, those are all awesome pets, but I especially love dogs. MermaidSaku,what kind of dog is he?

MermaidSaku
07-16-2011, 05:59 PM
He's mixed his mother "Star" Was chow and something else she looked like a fox. His dad was a Mexican dingo.
You'd think with a mermaid owner he'd love water but he's afraid of rain and any kind of water actually. xD

He's so cute Saku! Neither of my dogs like water much. Bambi will swim on very rare occasions if she's very hot or very lonely, at which point she usually crawls on top of someone's head. Sasha HATES the water and, from the one time she was in the pool, I've gathered that she can't really even swim. It's so strange; I thought all dogs could swim! But she was barely able to stay above water and I had to help her out.

Well if i am trying to fill his bucket of water with the water hose he runs off. xD lol

Lol yes, so do both my girls. They're such chickens. Last summer, I even tried to associate water with good things in Sasha's mind by leading her closer and closer to the pool, then clicking her clicker and giving her treats, but it didn't work. She still hates it.

LOL thank you- i have over 20 yrs of fish keeping under my belt (not saying my age lol), I have 2 bettas both are kept in the two 15 gallon tanks, I have my old boy going on 4yrs and my newest baby boy who is 7 months old now. Fish arent that hard to keep, as long as you have the proper equipment. Bettas sometimes can be tough to keep but I advise you if you ever want a low maintainence and hardy fish, go with a paradise fish, their a bettas cousin and their smart too, easy to train and can live happy alone or with a community tank. I've raised my fair share of fish from guppy to arowanas and gars..lol <- monster fish type of girl. Well if you have any questions about disease, sickness or anything else I'd be glad to help out. and for your viewing please my baby boy phoenix lol hes not that little anymore :(

The closest thing I have to pets are my beloved vintage fashion doll collection, the vast majority of which I have "rescued" from thrift stores, doll shows, and once in a while eBay.

@MermaidLanai: Gars? Yikes! When I was in elementary school, we'd frequently take trips to the aquarium, where we'd go see the giant fish tank that had a huge alligator gar in it. I know gars' mouths aren't big enough to eat people and they're not actually that dangerous (thank you River Monsters), but I am 24 years old now and I still occasionally have nightmares about that. If I ever get another fish, I will consider a paradise fish. And your boys are so cute. It looks like they really love to be talked to. :)

@Taylor is a mermaid : thank you, Yes I had 2 florida gars, they can get up to 4 feet. Alligator Gars are scary and they can get up to 8-10ft. when i got my Forida gars they were about 3- 4 inches, after a few years, one died and the other one i donated to my aquarium she was 2ft long :) Their harmless I worked with my male gar since he was younger and he would allow me to pick him up and move him around, especially when i was doing tank cleanings and such, they remind me of lttle Icthyosaurs.

That is amazing! Those guys are small and actually pretty cute. I'm curious; do fish recognize individual people? I know birds do.

MermaidSaku, your dog sounds like he might be part shiba inu! Both of my mutts are 25-50% shiba, and both show a very similar trait - they HATE water! Shiba Inus are almost cat-like when it comes to cleanliness, and they hate moisture. My dogs are so bad at it, they refuse to go potty outside after a rainy day lol.
