Let's do a poll on pets! What kinds do you have and how many? I can't make a poll that really covers all the possibilities, but this will at least let you select for one only or more than one of a given species and allows multiple responses—for example, if you have one dog, three cats, and one bird, click "I have one dog," "I have two or more cats," and "I have one bird." You can tell us the details in a post! Feel free to add photos if you want (thumbnails encouraged).

2 cats. But one is so fat he should count as 3 all by himself! :-)

2 cats, or 3 if i count the stray that is the father of the other 2 and often sleeps on the doormat
1 dog, but depending on the way he feels, he can be counted as human, cat or sometimes horse (mostly depending on who- or whatever he is interacting with at the time) :grin:
photo's i'll post when i get my digital camera next week (i love to show them of)

My parents and I share one cat.
If I ever move out I probably wouldn't have one; I would not want the responsibility. lol
As many of you know, I am totally blind and have been considering getting a guidedog. I am slightly afraid of dogs and I do not really like them that much anyway. So I am undecided about the guidedog issue. lol
I love cats but don't like taking care of them so my parents get to do that. :wink:

I used to have hamsters, a mouse, rabbits, cats, birds and fish but I moved out and don't have any room for pets of my own now. I will when I get a bigger house: at least two cats and two rats.

I currently have a cockatiel and an iguana. However, when we buy our house in the new year, we intend to have fish. Oh, and maybe a tortoise as we know somewhere that breeds them legally and I've always wanted one... :)

So, why didn't you click the "I have two or more lizards/snakes/turtles/other reptiles" option, which at this moment has no votes? :grin:

I always wanted a lizard, but never could decide which type to get.... and right now, the landlord said we can't have anymore pets here.

It looks like I'm the only one who has an arthropod :) Currently I'm taking care after one Brachypelma Albopilosum - commonly known as curly hair spider. He (or she - too young to determine sex) is after second mould and is beautiful, though really small for now :) I don't have any pictures unfortunately (or fortunately - for those afraid of spiders ;)).
I exist to cease.

We are owned by two cats..hehehe and they rule with an iron paw, we are theirs to command.

I am sure other cat people can relate to that statement.
