Hey all! I've come up with a questionnaire about your pet (pets), it would be cool if everyone answers these questions and posts a reply.
C'mon, let's take it as a game where everyone can participate! =)

1. When and how did you get your pet (pets)?
2. Why did you decide to get a pet (pets)?
3. Why is it a <cat, dog, hamster, ferret, budgerigar, snake, etc>?
4. Was anyone in your family against having pets?
5. Why do you think it's cool to have pets?
Nice idea, pocket! Here's my cat's story:

1. When and how did you get your pet (pets)?
In 1994, I was a child. My brother and I found a stray kitten in a village, and we brought him home.

2. Why did you decide to get a pet (pets)?
I didn't decide. The kitten decided for me when I looked at him. Emotion: love

3. Why is it a <cat, dog, hamster, ferret, budgerigar, snake, etc>?
I've always loved cats.

4. Was anyone in your family against having pets?
Yes, my dad. But my mom managed to persuade him eventually. And what do you think? In a while, he felt in love with our new companion!

5. Why do you think it's cool to have pets?
Because they brighten up our life. There are actually a lot of things we could learn from them.
#1 My friends cat gave birth to 4 irresistible kittens and I couldnt help taking two, it happened abour 6 months ago

#2 I love them
#3 The answer is the same as for #1

#4 No because I am the only human in the house [6]
#5 They are such fun and cuteness
1. When and how did you get your pet (pets)?

Butters (Ger. Shep. X)-He was born in a shed (manger?) on x-mas eve '07. His mom stopped taking care of his at two weeks, so Will and I stepped in.

Poochie (Chihua.)-Given as a "gift" when I was 14. She was saved especially for me because of the heart shaped marking on her head.

Achilles (Kitty)-Adopted. Nearly squashed by a compactor at a junkyard. The junkyard owner had him neutered and he was mine.

2. Why did you decide to get a pet (pets)?

I've always had pets. I definitely need them always.

3. Why is it a <cat, dog, hamster, ferret, budgerigar, snake, etc>?

Dogs are my favorite because of their loyalty, but I just love a warm, purring cat on my lap on a cold day.

4. Was anyone in your family against having pets?

My family doesn't really get the whole "pet thing". Pets are more like property and less like partners to them.

5. Why do you think it's cool to have pets?

Sometimes, humans let you down. When that happens, it's nice to have something around that loves you so much for simple things like dry kibble, a scratch behind the ear, or a short walk. They don't care about what you look like, how much money you have, what kind of clothes you wear, or anything like that. They hold no judgements as long as you take good care of them. That's the coolest thing to me about having pets.
pocket881. When and how did you get your pet (pets)?

my new addition is ostara a beautiful little kitten i rescued from the local kennels.after moving to germany i think gizmo has been missing next doors little kitten who he spent all day cuddled up with her XD and so decided to get a little girl for him and he is loving her (after a day of sulking thinking he was going to be replaced)

3. Why is it a ?

4. Was anyone in your family against having pets?

my husband loves them just as much as me he cant keep his hands of the new kitten!
5. Why do you think it's cool to have pets?

there not my pets there my babies!nothing de-stresses me like watching a cat wash behind there ears XD curling up in bed with you and having a good old purr,loving you when they need something and when they dont and much more loyal then humans!

1. When and how did you get your pet (pets)?
I inherited my dog from my boyfriend. He now looks at me as if im his mother :-p
My boyfriend and I got our kitten in december. It was my christmas gift :]

2. Why did you decide to get a pet (pets)?
I had never had a dog before stitch and I completely fell in love. Before that, I have always had cats in my household..without it my house just feels empty. I realized I always wanted my own cat and since I have my own space now (not living with my parents) I could get one.

3. Why is it a <cat, dog, hamster, ferret, budgerigar, snake, etc>?
I have a dog and a cat.. my family has two cats...and my sister has three. They all feel to some degree like my family even though i dont see them very often

4. Was anyone in your family against having pets?
My parents didn't really want me to get a pet just yet because they feel that it may weigh me down and prevent me from doing other things.. However, without pets my life does feel pretty empty so I have them anway.

5. Why do you think it's cool to have pets?
They provide you with a companionship that cannot be beat. They love you unconditionally and they think you are the greatest thing since sliced bread. This also makes me want to love them back unconditionally, and I do. They are the best friends in the world.

We bought our cat a year last September from someone in Stockport, UK. We wanted a cat because we don't work now and have plenty of time to look after one and also I love cats, as they are so furry and lovely, purring and meowing. No one was against having the cat and anyway there are only my husband and me at home. It's cool to have pets because too many kittens are put down or abandoned and they love you unconditionally. Our cat only cost us £20 and that was the best £20 we've ever spent.
