I had a cat i found abandoned by the momma cat in my backyard. I spent all night searching for a pet store to buy some kitty formula and a bottle. About 3am i managed to get him warmed up and eating, then i had to go to work :huh:

I also have owned 2 ferrets. Stinky little things but very playful.

I have always wanted to own a skunk. I heard they can be descented and are just like cats/ferrets.
Out of the night that covers me, Black as the pit from pole to pole
I thank whatever gods may be For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance, I have not winced nor cried aloud.
Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears, Looms but the Horror of the shade
And yet the menace of the years Finds and shall find me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll
I am the master of my fate: I am the captain of my soul.

No idea, my ex took him when she left and he "escaped" from her car on the drive to her parents. I am sure he is fine though.

Then this wasn't recently. I was worried (I'm soft in the head like that). :oops:

Nah, it was...4 years ago

I have not owned a pet since, mostly because the places i am staying at do not allow them. Once i get into a right proper place, then i think i may just go rescue a kitty from the shelter :cloud9:

We have many, many cats just now... my didn't-get-to-the-spay-clinic-fast-enough female, Onyx, had a little of four beautiful Siamese (three girls and boy) on (appropriately!) Mother's Day. That brings the current total to (gulp) 9: Merlyn, Piper, Pavarotti, Cleo, Onyx, Picasso, Pearl, Peridot, and Pigeon. Here, have a look at the babies. Cute, eh? :D

blessings,

Willow

On the farm where I now live with my family, we've got:

3 cats; Zumi (Maine coon cat), Taliesin & Fionnuala (half-Siamese)
2 dogs; Mirra (Belgian Turvyuren - I can never spell that right) & Willow (Corgi)
2 rats; Noodles and Meissa
1 corn snake (Seraphina)
10 horses, all PasoFinos; Ritmo, Mariquita, Mariposa, Honey, Buho, Pejerro, Abejorro, Hierro, Dove, and Zoe
12 ducks (used to be more, but there's been a fox around since late spring)
2 geese
mobs of chickens, one of which is a rooster I call Nemesis.

I LOVE IT :cloud9:

I just got my boyfriend/partner a kitten, so now we are a 2 cat household. He named the kitten: Nigel Jettison Pounce, but we call him Nigel for short. :kitty: I got the kitten from one of my daughters' friends, who found him lost and stuck in a tree.

Little Pearl, one of Onyx's kittens, passed away on the Solstice. We're not sure why-- she suddenly starting having seizures and never recovered. :gloomy: Poor little kitty baby.

Ah, and part of me is jealous of you, since I haven't seen the ocean in a few years now - and that part of me is quite starved for her!
