guysimple: I hate cat because one cat eaten my parrot...


Keeping a cat and a bird together is not a good idea...

mollybaby: I have 2 dogs, both rescues.


My cat has a terrible personality. laugh She didn't experience any traumas as a kitten, but still - she gets scared easily and then attacks. When she was younger - she would bite my leg or hand if I sneezed or dropped something. laugh A year ago she had an operation and changed a lot since. She's much quieter and not so dangerous as before. But, she was a real panther! cool laugh She always disliked men, by the way. laugh

TokyoRogue: So, I'm in conflict about keeping pets. On one hand it's a positive thing to do if the animal is at risk, injured or in danger. But, the animal lover purist in me believes all animals should be left alone to roam. I do understand that this is often impractical and unrealistic, however.


I agree that wild animals shouldn't be kept in captivity, especially in small places. I don't like zoos or circuses.

Domestic animals and pets are different. They rely on humans a lot. Even if we let dogs and cats wander around, they will still be close to human homes and expect food and shelter from us.

Deedee123x: I have one dog..who is recovering from surgery.


I hope your dog recovers soon. hug

Track16: Currently there are 17 cats and 3 dogs here.


shock

How do you manage? It's never boring at your home, definitely! smile
Cute pets, by the way. smile

emmy1: Three very lazy pampered rescue cats all different characters but very very loving.


heart beating

Cachuchi: I do not like cats, at all, but I could do an efford....I guess, never did as I have never been truly interested in someone with cats


You never know... smile

nonsmoker: I have a husky cross,
Very intelligent as dogs go an so placid.


A very beautiful dog! smile Huskies are like little wolves. purple heart

Dedovix: I got two dogs -and i dont want my dogs to get close to my partners ...


They must be some dangerous guard dogs!

yubba: Had a Labrador puppy come to live with me and he stayed almost 14 years after he left I would not invite another...............ever.


hug

Animals live much shorter than us and sooner or later we have to say goodbye. crying I had a Siamese cat prior to this one and he died young, at the age of 6. I cried for weeks. crying But, then, even if the grief is deep, giving another pet a home and being in its company really helps. smile

daniela777: Animals are very receptive to Reiki.

I've had dogs all my life and I do it on them too if they have any pain.


That's very interesting to hear...

I find horses are even more receptive to Reiki as they are very sensitive creatures.

When I start with them I do it at some distance until they get used to the energy. Then I do it hands on.

I don't always know if and where they have a pain but they tend to show me...or communicate with me in one way or another.
Then they are so relaxed They seem to be in a trance.
Eventually after about 20mn they suddenly wake up telling me they've had enough.

But those who have a limp for example ...after about 3 x 20mn sessions directly on their leg..they can walk again.

I just remembered this. In the centre of town I have an office I also sometimes pack trees to send and left some there one Saturday afternoon. On Sunday morning I went to pack and at the rear/side door it is iron but is missing a 'cover fillet' where the lock side meets the frame and I am waiting for a guy to weld it.

Getting started I got the boxes and it was deadly quiet in the street and I never put the radio on as I was moving about I took no notice but glanced through the door crack to see a pair of eyes like saucers and a tabby head moving about. A small cat was sitting outside staring at me and moving its head each time I moved to get a better look at what I was doing.

It's these things that tell me animals are smart, curious and much more intelligent than we are.

Maya74: I noticed that similar topics are closed or very old, so I decided to start another one.

Do you have pets? I have a black 12-year-old cat.

Do you think that pets can be a great way to meet someone? When both people have pets, they instantly have something in common and a lot of experiences and anecdotes to share. Did you ever meet anyone thanks to your pet?

What would you do if your partner disliked your pet? Or if they were allergic to it?


...I have two dogs and I am their slaverolling on the floor laughing They are like children and never grow upconfused I wait on them and serve them food like a waiterlaugh

I have three dogs, two King Charles/Japanese Chin cross and my sidekick Gracie the Yorkie four pounds of sheer terror! Seriously she thinks that everyone loves her and she does love everyone, the other two are afraid of people but not animals. I've flown with Gracie to Chicago, and we've driven everywhere together, she goes with me if I travel.

I would not have a partner that disliked animals or my dogs. One guy had on his profile that he was an animal lover. I guess from a distance because he was allergic to almost every animal...why do people lie on their profiles? Anyway, that went nowhere fast when he told me he was allergic.

I made a commitment to my dogs when I brought them home, they are here forever, not just at my convenience.

Crazy..I only became allergic to pet hairs in the last few years, but have owned plenty of animals up until that time.
Not even sure how or when it happened, but its ongoing now for me.
I do love animals though, I just cant be around them for long or pet them now.wave

.
See if you can get a pill called 'Primalan' it is good for allergies and don't make you sleep if you get close to an animal just take one.

It's a one per day pill no prescription.

It's interesting how we love our pets unconditionally and never expect anything from them, yet we are so strict and demanding with humans...

I've had my oldest dog for over 13 years.


I guess if I had a significant other who was allergic to him, I'd probably miss her.

I had a black cat once years ago, he would sit on top of the fridge and be really still..
Only his eyes would follow me around the room, was freaky laugh
Funniest cat I have ever had though, he wore a cowboy hat well grin

I don't have any pets now. All my 3 dogs died last 13 months.

Pets are an amazing ice breaker. Comonolity creates opportunities.

Well of course I have a beautiful young boy dog, he's just turned 2 years old or thereabouts grin


I lost my senior boy Ben 2 and a half years ago, I was devastated and put a thread up here which was enormous comfort to me as it drew wonderful heartfelt messages from our community hug


It took me a year or so to recover and then just when I was thinking I might like another furbaby, I encountered a gorgeous young boy who was only a few months old and was being neglected in my street


Long story short, he was offered to me, I said Yes and our love story began heart wings


If I met someone who didn't like him, my dog would come first wine
