    Pet Keeping

    Hi again!

    Another hobby I have that isn't listed (I guess you could call it a hobby) is keeping pets. At one point I had 6 pet rats and a cat. I've since had 6 guinea pigs, and a parakeet. I never intended to have so many guinea pigs, but my first two (now deceased) were male. Then I bought two females. One of them came to me pregnant. She gave birth to two boys the day after my cat died. So I now have the two females, the two "babies", the parakeet and in November I finally got another cat who was just over a year old at the time. What pets do you have?

    We have a cat and a dog here in Israel. In Ukraine, my parents used to have a Rottweiler and a cat. The Rottweiler always wanted to play with the cat. The cat didn't

    There is another pets thread out there, or two, were I not on the iPad I would go find them for you, but no one minds talking about pet keeping in a hobby sort of way, as I think most pet owners just enjoy yammering about their pets!

    i have 2 kitties, if I tried to get any other pets at this time there would be a line of people to throttle me, my MiL, FiL, hubby.... Yeah.... No need for more animals.... They say...

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    We used to have a kitty That was her name, actually, Kitty. She passed quite a while ago.

    I do still have a chinchilla, though. He's my sweet little ball of furious lovin'. He has a minor eye irritation that I've been giving him eye drops for. It's clearing up pretty nicely, but he had me scared for a while there.

    We had 2 small parrots many years ago. One was green and the other yellow. They stinked, literally. What happened is that either my mum or I forgot to lock their cage. The day after, they were both found dead on our neighbour's garden. But they were really nice, especially the green one.

    I have had my Husky for about four years now. I found him on the side of the street and learned he had a chip. When I tried to contact his owner, I learned that she had died and had no family left behind so I got to keep him. His name is Shunka. He enjoys escaping from the yard and the house whenever he feels like it.

    My little quill-baby. He's bigger now, but I can't be asked to dig out my newer photos of him at this moment.

    Re: Pet Keeping

    I think we actually got a whole Pets subforum, didn't we? Or did I hallucinate that?

    I have a Rainbow Lorikeet named Noodle... pretty sure there's a photo on the forum here somewhere...

    My cat lives with my parents as they wouldn't let hom move out with me. Otherwise Torey and I are renting so we aren't allowed any other pets. We have plans though lol.

    I'm also a vet nurse, so you could consider pet care a particular hobby of mine.

    Re: Pet Keeping

    It's a figment of your imagination. There is not now nor has there ever been a pet subforum attached to the Friends and Family section.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis
