Ew! My sister's cat always escapes out the door. She's like a shadow--sometimes you don't even know she gets out. Lately she's been bringing dead mice back and laying them in front of the door. One night she brought back 3.

I have a fat cat named Muffin and he's my precious baby. :D He's adorable. He's like, 9, but he acts like a kitten. He's the biggest People Cat I've ever met; when one of us leaves the house for awhile he practically bursts a blood vessel. No presents for us, though; he tried the whole "outside" thing and it just didn't work for him. Obviously bad vibes. So no gifts for us. :(

I have a three year old black cat whose ma' sweet kitty :) . Her name's Stella (*cough* ;) ) and we found her on a neighbor's porch after it had snowed, and the pathetic, adorable little thing was just to pathetic and adorable that even my dad caved xD She doesn't drag to many things around... Except for the cricket she "killed" last night. She's been dragging it around all over the house :P ... And it's leg is still twitching. o.o

Her newest thing is lugging her plastic ball (with a bell) up the stairs at night, and pushing it down the stairs so it goes *clunk* *clunk* *ring* *smashes into wall* and then she keeps lugging it back up the stairs and repeating until someone (usually me, because I'm a night owl) plays with her -.-

We have a cat. Our previous cat ran away to the Navy --er, neighbors. Their cat came to live with us. We named him Max. We've previously had cats named Molly, Midnight, Max, Mittens, Melanie, Marvin... you get the idea. Why they're all "M" names... I don't know.

I have a cat called Phoenix. I love him. He has longish hair and is orange. He is very cuddly and is so attached to me he has to always be in the same room I am. If I say something to him, he meows back at me. If I look at him, he looks at me and often will come over to me. When I leave, Mom says he goes around the house, meowing loudly.
I got him from the feral cats in my grandparents' haymow. A few days after Christmas 2011, the farrier was trimming our horses' hooves and I noticed a kitten in the window, huddled up in the cold. I picked him up and he didn't even try to run away. He had a bad cold, making his eyes half-shut. I thought he probably wouldn't survive the winter; his sibling had already died on Christmas. So Mom agreed because I'd been wanting a cat for a while, and she has a weakness for orange cats. I took him home, and had to give him medicine from the vet, but he turned into the funny, wild, silly, cute, loving boy he is today. :)

I have a dog. Her name is Bramble, she's a dachshund and has an unhealthy attachment to people. Seriously, she goes into full panic ohmygoodnessI'mgoingtodie mode if she is separated from anyone, even if she can still see them. It's cute but mostly annoying because if you want to be able to concentrate on anything, you have to make sure she's safe in the same room you are in with a toy.
She's not terribly bright, and for a 9 pound dog, she is a destructive machine. She will annihilate and consume any toy you give her a quickly as possible. So we have to give her toys that are basically just solid plastic or she'll have chewed it beyond recognition in a few minutes.
But yes, I do love her and she is very sweet and surprisingly quick to pick up on tricks like sit, stay, etc.

It's too cute, until you try to sleep ;)

She has this nasty habit of getting up really early in the morning when my dad leaves for work, so if my door happens to be closed she'll sit and go *meow, meoow, meoooow, MEOOW* Who needs alarm clocks??
She's not much of a people person, and she HATES little kids. With a burning passion. Which kinda stinks, because I take care of little kids at my house all the time. She'll usually go hide on top of my brother's bunk bed. It's kinda funny ;)

I have a cat, a horse, a bird, and recently got a hermit crab, a Beta fish, and two fiddler crabs (my sister has a cat and a fish, and mom has a cockatiel, a Shih Tzu, and a horse). I asked for a crab on my birthday list, not thinking I'd actually get one, but my sister gave me a hermit crab. When I went to Wal-Mart to get supplies, I thought that I'd like to get a Beta fish, and I also saw fiddler crabs near the fish. They don't seem to treat their crabs or fish very well, so I probably shouldn't support them, but still I wanted to save them. Two of the fiddler crabs looked dead, so I had to save the other two. I'm glad I did. They are so cute! They are always entertaining to watch, just how they grab food with their little claws.
There is a male and a female. I haven't named the fish, hermit crab, or the male fiddler crab yet-- it's hard to focus on naming one when you have several. :) The female fiddler crab I thought of naming Corner because when scared she always goes in a corner and tries to crawl up the glass, but that was lame so I named her Quorra (after a Tron character).

You live on a farm, Micky? That is so cool!

I just own a dog, a black lab named Jasper.

I love your dog, Ro! I've seen pics of her on FB and she's SOOOOOO cute! :D

~~~~~
My dog's name is Schnitzel the Schnoodle (Schnitzel Das Hund ['female dog' in German] to be precise). She's 4 and is a wrecking ball (don't start singing. :ugeek: ).

I got her at 8 months and she was a fall puppy (which happens to be my favorite season).

My favorite memory was looking through her whole litter and picking her to hold and she licked me with her puppy breath and fell asleep. SO CUTE! I was 11 or 12 when I picked her. :D
