I inherited 3 plants from my apartment's previous owners. I'm afraid they are currently dying a slow, painful death.

My last cat would bring me a dead chipmunk probably about every other day until just before he died. I would pat him on the head and say "good kitty" since he thought he was doing me a solid, which he was, they are like rats around here. But yeah, I don't think cats are really satisfied until everything is dead for miles around.
I also had crayfish when I had fish growing up and they ate all the fish eventually even though they were twice the size of the crayfish. I didn't ever name my fish or the crayfish for that matter, just never occurred to me.
I've got a dog now and she's awesome. She's a pit bull/shar-pei(wrinkle dogs) mix and she's basically a fighting machine. My neighbors have 3 of those cattle dogs, 2 males and one female and they pack-attacked her one day but she kicked all their asses soundly. They literally ran away with their tales between their legs. She's really pretty sweet day to day but when she gets in a fight something switches "on" and it's a little unnerving to watch lol. I'll post a pic of her once I get around to it.

Urgh. Anyone who is proud of their dog being a fighting machine is, er, not someone I think should own a dog...

Is a crayfish like a crawdad? Why would you pay money for that? Go find a creek and grab one.

Well, EXCUUUUUSEEE MEEEEEE.
She got ganged up on and wasted them, what's your problem man? I don't allow her to attack people and I don't enter her in many dogfights. Besides, she doesn't start fights, she just ends them. :mrgreen:

My dad had a pit and even as a puppy he was just too much work you really need a active lifestyle and lots of free time to have one of them. Pits are also banned in my county.

Description: Purebread Yorkie, but nicknamed "Teakettle" Yorkie, weighing about 10lbs but not obese or anything. About 2x the size (length and height) of a regular Yorkie overall. Will be 4 in April.
Misceleaneous: When she gets excited, she starts doing a "charge" all around the house. And aside from dinking water and tolerating baths, she avoids water. Going so far as to jump over a small puddle of water that would barely get her feet wet. Thinks everyone that comes around is there to see her (very friendly to people and animals).


never heard of teakettle yorkies. My yorkie totally hates baths but isin't afraid to get his paws wet in the lake to chase ducks. I heard their needyness come from the breed, they are toally dependent on their handlers and want us around all the time. When I leave him alone in the house he spends the entire time literally crying... and like you said super friendly always wants to greet people at the door and get his head rubbed.

For reference, I had ferrets when I was a kid, but I would not consider owning a pet now. My roommate has a dog, which I hate. Also, I grew up on a farm and just generally don't like animals.

What's the value? All I see is a money-drain, something that makes your house filthy(er) and gobbles up food that you have to buy it. Plus the time you spend on it. I could see MAYBE having a cat around the house to kill rodents, but I would never let it in.

-TG


I used to think exactly like you and than I got my yorkie and i just got overly attached, Small dogs don't really each much at all. a bag of food ($12) will last several months for my dog. I also spend about $7 on treats will also last several months ( and i usually give him 3 every day) the filthyness is not really an issue i know most dogs/cats shed but yorkies don't i know it has something to do with their fur that doesn't shed or make you allergic. The time i spend dedicated to him is not much, usually 3-5 minutes twice a day is all he needs to do his business. I usually give him a bath every week so another 20 minutes, the rest of the time he is satisfied being on my lap or rubbing against my legs or just sleeping. having a pet, especially a dog i think can bring lots of unexpected laughter/happiness. I'm extremely happy with my dog to the point that i let him sleep with me and my fiance in bed which he loves being around us.

Yeah they are the same thing. I had the same though. Why purchase half of these pets? Just grab a wolf or a fox and boom! Canine Companion.

I saw something on reddit a couple of days ago where a guy had a pet fox. I'll admit it was pretty damn cute. Apparently you can buy them for like 8 grand.

Those are all things I love about my dog. :mrgreen:
And if you are going to compare dogs to cats, might I remind you that catshit is probably the most overpowering smell known to man?
