well i tried posting this but i was rejected. thankfully I copied it to see how many words it was (at that time, 2142)
I wanted to just talk about my pets that I've had in my life. Note: this will be long and has sad stuff (deaths but nature happens)
I've owned 20+ cats, 18+ dogs, 1 goat, 7+ rabbits, 12 chickens, 2 lizards, 2 hamsters, 1 guinea pig, 3 other birds, 5 fish, 2 horses, 1 ladybug (i can explain), 5 sugar gliders, 1 deer, and probably other things.
Cookie was probably a female persian cat. At that time, we also had Smokey, one of the black cats that we've had, and two others that I can't remember the names of.
Kitty was a random calico that showed up one afternoon and was so affectionate and cuddly. It was like I owned her all of her life. I named her kitty because it was my first thought. We later had a litter of kittens and a black and white kitten got stuck under the house. I got her free and we ended up bonding right then and there.
She was my pride and joy as well as Kitty. I named her Mitty (Mittens) just to rhyme with Kitty. No clue where they went.
Insert 50000 generations of kittens whose mothers were black cats.
Midnight/Smoky was a black cat we had for several years. She was old to be honest, but pregnant yet again. One night I went outside to walk around because it was a nice temp outside, and I saw her in the road. We had to bury her that night. It killed me, but I know she's not suffering now. Sad that the kittens weren't born. RIP
That was about April this year.
Diamond is a beautiful Siamese that was one of two kittens. No clue what happened with the other. All I can say is that she doesn't like people. There was only one cat in every generation that liked me :I
Meulin is her kitten and there was another that disappeared when it was really young. To think that the cat that will follow me to China used to bolt when it saw me just makes me wonder what happened. It's just one day this cat runs over to me and now I have a cat that tags along everywhere I go. I had to get him down out of a tall tree one night because Isis chased them (mentioned later) across the planet. He was terrified but okay. She did it again and I lost it that time and told the previous owner to take her back. Never happened.
Cokes (Cocoa) is someone's kitten (either Diamond or Midnight) and she bonded with me. She's the sister of Blackie. A few months ago some van hit her and broke her hip. I have never had a cat survive a car so I was thrilled when she came out from hiding. She's a little skittish now and sleeps in the old shed across the yard but is running around and playing and climbing well. Her hip looks like it'll never heal and I"m gonna take her to the vet once we find out how much itd be and when we can afford it. She's back to her normal playful self and still tries to trip me when we're running around the yard. She's a lucky kitten though
Blackie is the typical black kitten that bolts when you get near it. I keep mistaking her for Cocoa because of the way she sits
That's about it. She had/has this weird bulgy look to her face kinda like a health condition, but it's hard to see now that she's bigger.
Yeah I've had other cats but I can't remember half of them.
To think I hate dogs.
Ginger was a golden retriever that died from parvo or rabies. Maybe both. She was really sweet and playful. I loved her to death. The day we found out something was wrong was the day she just attacked me for no reason. That's all I remember. It's been eons.
Princess was a blonde pekingese that we had. I'm pretty sure they had her before I was born. I know she was old when I was just a toddler. She died from age, but was a really nice dog. We kept her in the house and I don't remember anything about her.
Baby was another pekingese we had for many years. She had something wrong with her eye. I think it was an injury from one of our other dogs. I'm not sure. She was ill because she was old. Typical stuff. I'd walk her all the time and I remember it snowing and she went outside and she didn't like it. We were in another state when she died.
Chloe was my other pride and joy. We got her from a shelter. Her previous owners abused her and we took her in because of it. She was a shih tzu and the one dog I loved to death. I remember she'd always get into things she didn't need to and eat them
She was a great dog. She died about a year later. I don't remember why.
Lilah was a lab that someone gave me for christmas. She went from a small puppy to a wolf in a few months.
She was playful and very sweet. She got big though and started jumping on people and I'm too small for that
Her death enrages me because she was hanged one day. If I knew who it was, they may have been arrested or something.
Isis was a pain. SHe was a wolf - german shepherd mix who couldn't be quiet and was huge. I just forgot everything she ever did but we had to give her to a shelter because 1. no one would take her and 2. we couldn't take care of her because she ate so much and was jumping on us and hurting us etc. She kept breaking chains, leashes, runners etc. and chasing our cats up trees. I almost lost it one day when she attacked Meulin. She was actually a good dog and just wanted attention, but she was just too rough and big for me to play with (I'm the only one who bothers).
Several other dogs that I can't remember.
Scooby and Fred turned out to be related and were yorkie-terrier mixes. Scooby was kept inside and we found out he had mange and we got meds for that blah blah he recovered. Typical stuff. We rescued Fred and saved his life literally. He was blind, thin, weightless and just in a terrible condition. Trip to a vet, meds, a bath, and food later, and he was running around the house. They both died this year. No clue what happened.
Finally. The goat.
I wanted a sheep though. We got him for some crazy reason that I don't know. His name was Billy and I just don't know why we had a goat. I know he decided to attack me one morning! That's all I remember to be honest.
I love rabbits. I never named them, but I loved them. They all escaped but one died somehow. They were precious babies
I want another one! I got the first one because I was at a carnival and I spent 15 minutes talking my mom into getting it for me
About those fish. I had a few glowfish and there wasn't anything special besides the fact that they really do glow. It was great. I also kidnapped a minnow from a lake for some reason (I was young
) and threw it into a tank. It died but I still had a minnow for a few hours. I had a male betta for a short time. No clue how it died but I'm pretty sure I was accused of scaring it. Sibling arguments. But yeah I had fish.
We got chickens from some guy and we raised them up. Dogs killed them. Henrietta was the last one and we got eggs from her. First time I held a chicken. We also had a rooster years ago and I was afraid of it. It chased me one day and I don't know what the heck happened there.
My brother was determined to get a water dragon so we caught petco with one and we got it. Crickets were annoying. It died. We got another. Same story. Yadda Yadda. I just want a monitor.
Hamsters are cute. Hamsters are funny. Hamsters fall off wheels. We had two and I forgot their names. One would run so fast on the wheel that it'd end up flying off of it
It was never injured but it was funny. I want another but I'm not sure about it.
Guinea pigs are cute too. Big and fluffy. I forgot her name, but she didn't last long. There's nothing to say sadly.
Priscilla was my first cockatiel and I swear I loved that bird to death. I got her when I was 3 from my aunt who owns her sister. She's still alive today. Cilla was the light of my life. I'd sit by her cage and whistle at her, hum a little song I made up for her, and just talk to her and feed her sunflower seeds through the cage bars. She wasn't tamed, but that doesn't change anything. When she fell off her perch when I was 8, it was shocking and heartbreaking. I don't know if she was startled, but she died that night. I miss her sometimes, but I've gotten over it all over the years.
Honey was my other tiel that I had. It wasn't too long ago. I did the same thing with her as Cilla but she wasn't as trusting as she was. Bunny was a budgie I got from petco at that time. Neither of them made a sound unless there was an argument going on. A mouse ended up giving them both heart attacks one night. I didn't get another bird after that though.
The horses were so long ago. Jewel was my horse that I never rode because I was too small and she was too big for a young horse. Big animals scare me even today. I loved her and cherished her, but we gave her to my dad after her mother, Kiki, kept jumping the fence and running off. Sadly, he gave Jewel to some random guy I don't know. Still upset about that, but I'm not gonna complain.
about that bug.
Y'see...I had a thing for ladybugs. They were interesting to me. Me and my friends at school made this group called the "ladybug club." We'd catch ladybugs and try to take care of them and then wonder why it didn't work out. We'd always end up with ladybugs on our desks. When the teacher would come by, we'd hide them. I had one ladybug that I had for a few days and bonded with it for god's sake.
I just remember having ladybugs two years ago. I was using this app called SketchIt and I had some friends there (Rose and Elizabeth) and we had finished fixing my room at that time. I kept finding ladybugs and I ended up saying "these ladybugs just come out of nowhere" and suddenly I kept keeping ladybugs. I named one Shadow (weird black bug though), Winkle (username of Elizabeth) and Rose.
I was a weird kid give me a break.
Sugar gliders are like mini lemurs/squirrels. We had five of them. Don't remember where we got them, why or what happened to them.
Finally, I want to say her name was TaTa or Sweetie. Whatever her name was, she was a white tailed deer fowl or whatever they're called. We got her from this lady who had some and was giving them away and she couldn't even walk yet. She finally learned and was really nice. She ended up trying to escape and injured herself.
Can't keep wild animals like that though :/
BUT yes I've had a zoo in my life.
I'm hoping to get a lovebird between now and january. I'll be happy if I do. I literally asked my mom if I could get a rabbit or a hamster
I just want something soft and gentle to play with.
I may get into falconry if I can. Doubt it.
But these are my pets that I've had throughout my life. I've had a lot of pets. I'm a huge animal person. I love them and I will never live a month without at least a cat.
Now that I think about it...I've never gone a month without owning a cat. Literally.
But yes that's all and I'll end this before it gets five million words long
