i know exactly who you mean, i thought that was despicable.

the loyalty of a dog is something to behold, shame the same cant be said of some fickle "humans".

I dislike cats intensely - they smell funny, they crap in the most inappropriate places and lamely try to cover it up, their piss smells like hell on earth, they kill precious songbirds for the hell of it and they make that horrible weird whining god awful noise late at night when you are trying to sleep.
I don't hate them though, oh, and I would never block anybody - I'm a good person...

I would like a to get a cat. The two that I had when my husband was alive and my son living at home were such lovely company and such fun to have around. It would be lovely to have something to hug! However, I don't think I would cope well on my own if a wee cat got sick.

There are individual animals that I do dislike, I've met some thoroughly nasty creatures in my time, personally I can't see the point of guinea pigs, what are they for? They just seem to stink and give nothing back as far as I'm concerned, but I'd still never hurt one, unless I was going to eat it and even then it would be as quick as possible.

I like guinea pigs, even if they are a bit dim.

I did get served one on a plate in Peru. Cooked, I should add. I couldn't bring myself to eat it.

Wouldn't really class spiders as pets, some clever dicks will probably say what about Tarantulas, they are are delusional.

My friend's son gas a tarantula as a pet. Although she really doesn't like spiders she has no problem touching the tarantula as she says it is more like an animal than smaller spiders.

I can understand her reasoning Templar. I like tarantulas and all spiders.

The way one of my pet corals can change it's colour at will fascinates me. Something we haven't been able to achieve.

I couldn't hate any animal unless it was trying to rip me to pieces. Even when they are extreemely annoying or make me angry I accept they are not doing it because they hate me!
I have a house cat. I live in a top floor apartment with a reasonable sized roof garden so she can wander around, sunbathe or curl up on the bed at will! Cats can be so clever and resourceful when geetting into boxes and opening one-way catflaps from the wrong side.
It's surprising how quickly a pet becomes part of the family.

I'm seriously considering a pet but can't decide if a cat or a dog would be the best choice. I love both.

Let me purrsuade you, Andromeda. Message me!
P.S. miaow.
wonderoushen  Female  Gwynedd 8-Feb-2017 09:46 Message #4676804
Get a greyhound Andromeda, they lay about sleeping like cats do, but still want to go for walks and hang out with you like dogs do, they're not in your face and drooling like most dogs either.
Wry  Male  Norfolk 8-Feb-2017 09:55 Message #4676807
A man took his greyhound into a bar, and the barkeep said, "Why the long face?"

I recall a greyhound chasing one of my cats, and the cat got away easily. On another occasion, when a dog was chasing it, it emptied its bladder as it ran, right in the dog's face. It also chased dogs occasionally.

Actually, I quite like greyhounds. They're not in your face and drooling like most men would be.

Unless you want something to take for a walk I would opt for a cat.
Wry  Male  Norfolk 9-Feb-2017 08:38 Message #4676923
Many cats will go for walks with you, and they don't tend to rush off as dogs do. They love the company, but you have to be prepared to wander around and be patient.
LutonLady  Female  Bedfordshire 9-Feb-2017 09:30 Message #4676936
I live in an upstairs flat with no garden and I work long and irregular shifts so having a pet would not be easy and possibly unfair on the animal.

Maybe a hamster lutonlady.
RAACH84  Female  Buckinghamshire 11-Feb-2017 07:42 Message #4677200
I have been chatting to a few elderly people who say their cats make life more bearable especially in the winter months when the weather keeps them indoors. Companionship us everything when you live alone.
wonderoushen  Female  Gwynedd 11-Feb-2017 13:29 Message #4677250
Yes Wry, in my experience you have to be prepared to crawl under bushes too.
LutonLady  Female  Bedfordshire 13-Feb-2017 07:36 Message #4677535
You are right Raach. A lot of the elderly only have their pets for companions and they and the pets form a very close bond.
Minnie-the-Minx  Female  Hertfordshire 13-Feb-2017 08:09 Message #4677536
The cat I had when I was a child used to come for walks with us. He loved it. It was a big game and he liked to hide in the bushes and ambush us. When we laughed, he used to go all loonie tunes.
