oh, shannon, it looks like we cross posted threads, but YAY!! I am really excitied about the pet forum.

We have four pets, three cats named Wang, Pepper, and Shadow, and a dog Named Spot. The cats were given away for free in front of stores, and Shadow was a rescued feral kitten. Spot, our dog is a miniature schnauser and he was bought from a breeder. All are spayed/neutered and less than four years old.

We have 2 official cats- PJ (female, white and fluffy) and Jake (male, completely black and sleek). PJ adopted us about 2 1/2 years ago. Jake was given to us as a kitten by MIL. He is about 2 years old.
We seem to have been adopted by another cat who my dd would like to name Painters and keep. It is female, gray stripes and very friendly & hungry. She might be pregnant.

We also have 3 tropical fish right now.
Haku is a rope fish. It is about 10 inches long and looks very much like a snake. Pansy is a bloodfin tetra- kind of silvery with red tips on the tail. Snowdrop is a swordtail fish- silver and black. We plan to get a snail and probably more tetras.

Our pets were our babies until our little "surprise" arrived!

We currently have two dogs: one is an Australian Kelpie/Border Collie mix got from a breeder at 10 weeks and one is a Black Lab/Schipperke mix from a shelter at 10 months. Our crazy kelpie Alice is almost 7 now and has a variety of medical issues maybe from being a runt (her bones & cartilage just didn't grow properly). Our black dog Daisy is almost 14 and showing her age: totally deaf (except for really high or really low noises), diabetic (with 2 insulin shots daily), incontinent and arthritis. My 16 year old black cat passed on last year.

I love animals and would have a house and yard full if I could. Right now, we're not adding to the family because of the health issues of our current pets. Probably next up will be a guinea pig for dd next year. Tried some goldfish a few months ago, but couldn't get the water ph right and they only lasted a week. Might try that again when it cools down in the fall.

Hi all,

Ms. Piper the scottish terrier says hi. She's 4 months old, black, loves to chase bugs, beg for treats, and crawl under the couch. She's also losing her baby teeth, which is pretty darn cute. So glad we've got a pet forum now!

Hey!

We have a 3 yr old shep/lab mix (rescue) who is the cutest, sweetest, smartest dog ever. We recently buried our 21 yr old cat, and we have a 7 mos old pure bred Sheltie (i wanted this dog very much) named Kenzie. Compared to our shep/lab, this dog is an idiot. I can't believe how stupid she is. :LOL

But we do love our doggies. Much.

We have two cats and one dog. Berlios (Bear) is a 15 yr old cat and has chin acne right now but otherwise is a beautiful and fluffy gray smoky cat. We've had him since he was a kitten. He is very skinny under all his fluff and is scared of dd and the dog. He also has asthma occasionally, only in August. (?) We had his brother also but he had cancer 5 years ago and passed.

We also have Pete, the tubby tabby. He is 5 and a dickens. He is hilarious and a rascal and occasionally gobbles his food and then barfs. He weighs 15 pounds now and is small boned! We've had him since he was 1lb, 8 oz at 8 weeks. He is also does not like dd or the dog.

Then there is Boon, the labradoodle. He is half poodle, half labrador. Some labradoodles are purebred but ours is not. (It is a breed just not recognized by the akc) He is a love bug. 18 mos, my other baby. He looks like a large standard poodle with bad hair! He has occasional anal gland issues but Shannon has helped that by suggesting we add pumpkin to his diet. He loves dd and she loves him back. We got him at 3 mos, I think.

We are in the process of switching all of them over to innova diet to help with all their little problems.

I am really happy this forum is here because my pets are really my fur babies and I am happy to have others to chat with about them!

Not long to post- babe getting in trouble. We have 2 cats- Nick and Scrabble and 2 ferrets- Peekaboo and Zamboni. Miss Cataria the ferret left us this spring (after being adrenal for at least 2 years- but she was older and the vet didn't think surgery was worth the risk) The last two years she was blind, deaf and usually hairless, but that didn't stop her from keeping everyone in the house in line.... :LOL

Aww. Those old female ferrets have a way of keeping everyone in line, don't they? It's so hard to loose a loved fur baby like that. Hugs.

Boy howdy don't they? Tari's thing was ears. She was a tiny little thing and the boys are big. You'd hear these awful protesting whimpers from the cage, and sure enough the little lady had one of the boys pinned down for a good ear washing. She was equal opportunity though, washed people ears, cat ears... she loved them all.

Hi! I'm glad to see this forum.

I manage feral cats. I catch them (using humane traps), get them neutered, and return them to their home. And I feed them daily, or have someone feed them daily.

I'm a big advocate of spaying or neutering ANY cat that you feed for longer than a few days. The food gives them the calories needed to reproduce. So if you're going to feed, you have to prevent the births that you are otherwise facilitating.

We have one dog, Nikita, a siberian husky, who is 16 years old and facing some health issues with her liver.

We have our old lady cat, Mitzi, who will be 19 in a few weeks and is in very good health. She's a sensible, even tempered brown tabby.

We have Salem, a large black cat (we nicknamed him The Panther because he is so BIG and muscular) who is seven. I found him when he was a week old, orphaned and covered in fire ants.

And then we have several younger cats that I picked up from doing feral cat rescue. One, Meeko, is the most beautiful cat I've ever owned - a long hair calico with green eyes and a symetrical black mask over her eyes.

And we currently have seven kittens and one mama cat in temporary foster care with us. Whew!

Ann-Marita. I deleted my usual signature due to, oh, wait, if I say why, that might give too much away.

Yay for the pet forum!

We are parents to Hannah, a yellow Lab who will be 6 in November. She came from a breeder in Ohio. We have been through many ups and downs with her in a medical sense, most of which have ended with some miraculous recovery to full health on her part. It's getting to the point that the stories sound ridiculous and made-up, but they're honestly true. She's sure given me lots of experience, and most recently an education in bone marrow disease and anemia. In April her red blood cell count got as low as 17 (normal is 40-55, if it had gotten to 14 she would have needed a transfusion). She had a bone marrow biopsy and was diagnosed with primary myelodysplasia with refractory anemia. It's very rare and they couldn't tell us her odds or even settle on the best treatment. We first tried the "wait and see" approach and it seems to be working: at the end of July her hematocrit had rebounded to 48.

Then there's Henry, a black Lab who is in some ways the complete opposite of Hannah. He turned 4 at the end of June. I can probably count on one hand the number of times he's been to the vet for any reason. He is more of an English type Lab (Hannah is not a field type but she is certainly not as stocky as the English type frequently are). We got him from a breeder in NC.

Finally, there's the cat, Jefferson, who came from an SPCA in PA. He will turn 5 on Labor Day weekend (so we have three pets who were born in the span of 19 months :LOL). I'm not really a cat person, but DH is. I admit it's been hard for me to bond with Jefferson, but I am glad we gave him a home. He's had some medical problems of his own... urinary blockages... which are now being controlled by prescription diet (knock on wood).

Before DD, I guess you could say my hobby was dogs. We started agility with Hannah and I think she would have had a good career at it if we'd been able to keep it up. Our idea of a fun Friday night used to be taking Hannah down to the small, independently owned pet supply store to hang out with the employees and socialize her. Since DD was born, it's been a little hard to learn how to manage everyone's needs, but we're committed to giving the pets what they deserve, and particularly not turning them into outside pets, which everyone has told us we'd do once we had kids.

OK, I'm really badly here, so I'll wrap up... gotta get ready for work anyway. It's awesome to have a place to talk about our furry kids.

Katherine, mama to Emma Kate (7) and Griffin (3)

I'm so glad we have this forum!

My dh, ds, and I share our life and home with:

6 cats:
Cheesy
Simon
Abby
Riley
Holly
Zippy

and

1 dog:
Sable

And I'm providing care for a whole host of feral cats. (All of the animals that I have came to me by way of a rescue or emergency operation. For instance, one of cats was beaten with a baseball bat by some teenage boys, and very nearly didn't survive. It broke her leg in 3 places, and severely stunted her growth. She's my "little girl" now. Another of the cats that I have was thrown from a car at the place that I work. She was extremely malnourished and her paw pads had been burnt off with a cigarette lighter, or some other device. So I've had my share of physically and emotionally injured creatures...)

I'm also helping my mom care for her 20 hamsters! (long story)

A link to the animal pictures is in my siggy.

Well, I better get back to breakfast. Riley is eyeing my cereal as I type! :LOL

Ditto to the grateful sentiments above – so happy for this forum .

My bundle of fur is Pippin , an adorable two-year-old terrier mutt – black and tan (like a min pin) with a super soft double coat. We adopted him in January from the humane society and he’s a handful most days. He’s dog and stranger-human aggressive, which makes taking walks, having people over, etc challenging. We were working with a behaviorist a few months ago who specialized in clicker training. The ideas she gave us were great, but she didn’t offer a lot of practical how-to advice (and the lack of practical advice made it REALLY hard to justify the $80/hr price). However, I found the book The Power of Positive Dog Training by Pat ****** which provides a multi-week plan for training with a clicker. We started off strong (Pippin is VERY food motivated), but it was a lot harder than the book makes it seem (isn’t that always the way?). Clicker training got stalled out due to us moving house, but I hope to get started up again soon. I’m open to training suggestions!

Another challenge we’re facing now is fleas . The new apartment is infested with them (and we think maybe the grounds of the apartment complex also). This all made moving in very frustrating, to say the least. I think things are getting a little more under control; we’re treating Pippin with Frontline Plus, vacuuming like crazy, and I’m going to get a canister of diatomaceous earth to treat inside.

I’m very excited because I think I found the perfect vet practice! They’re very conservative with their vaccine use, stress proper nutrition (which I need to learn more about from a dog’s perspective), and specialize in various holistic practices including classical homeopathy, TCM/acupuncture, and using Western herbs. Yay!

I have 3 furbabies-

My dog Blaze who is a brindle half boxer/half pit bull. We adopted her from an animal shelter thru Petfinder in 2002. Everyone told us she was full blooded boxer- the shelter, the vet, the trainer.. until she got up to about a year old. She's the sweetest dog ever. She mothers everything- the kids, the cats, other dogs. Even a litter of kittens we had!

Toby, a gray tabby. He's beautiful. He doesn't have stripes, he has swirls. I've never seen another kitty that looks like him. He is *so* sweet! I brought him home after my idiot brother tossed him outside his house for wetting on the carpet- after my brother locked him in a room without a litter box! We've had him since 2001.

Beau- a black and white tuxedo kitty. He is *rotten*. R O T T E N! He loves nothing better than to sit in the middle of whatever you happen to be working on, stretch out and purr. He's also HUGE! He's gotta be 15 pounds, and he's only a year old! He's not fat.. he's solid muscle!

We also have a Mama Purr, a sweet calico mama kitty who's kittens just went to another foster family at 11 weeks a few weeks ago.. we still miss them. Mama Purr is a *sweetie*! We'll be getting her spayed soon. It looks like she may be staying with us.

I am so glad we have this forum!

Really happy to see this forum in existence!!

I am the loving mama to a 5 year old black lab named Oakley. I adopted him from a family farm near my home, his (birth)mom was a yellow lab and his dad was a chocolate lab. He is a big boy (he's European) but very gentle and laid back... except when he catches a hint of the words 'breakfast, supper, walk, or outside'!! We love our Oakley-boy so much and I'm looking forward to finding out lots of great, natural, gentle information in this forum!

Hi!
We currently have a cat named James. James is a female cat. DD #1 wanted to name DD#2 James, and was quite dismayed when we named her Ingrid.
When Ingrid was about 2 1/2 mos we went to the local shelter and picked a cat. She is a jewel! She snuggles everyone, including the baby. At night she sleeps in dd#1's bed until she decides to crawl into our bed. She loves to show off her catnip mouse toy hunting. She's very patient if Ingrid grabs her when she passes by.
Before James we had a Rottwieler named Kaya. I got her as a 1 year old rescue, and she was the sweetest dog, even though everyone was afraid of her. She was my hiking buddy and guardian. She loved dd#1. She used to “sing” to specific songs by Neil Young, Bob Marley, Red Hot Chili Peppers, and Blind Melon.
DH and I met as housemates just after I got Kaya. I think he fell in love with her first, and Kaya saw to it that we fell in love so he would stay in her life.
When we bought our first house last year, Kaya’s health began a rapid decline. Her vet believes she had cancer, but at 10 ½, we decided not to do any invasive surgery. So we did what we could to make her more comfortable for as long as we could. When we finally had her euthanized DH, SIL (the ultimate dog lover), and I held her and talked to her until she was gone. DD#2 was born almost 24 hours later.

We hope to get another big dog next year. I go back and forth between getting a puppy from a reputable breeder and getting another breed specific rescue. I don’t think we’ll get another Rottie. I still get a lump in my throat when I see one.

This summer we also had a monarch butterfly caterpillar, who became a butterfly, and we hatched a praying mantid egg case. All but one survived (he ate the others), and we let him go to enjoy the aphids on my moonflower vine. I’m now totally hooked on exotic insects. 

A co-worker has some zebra finch babies, and I’m very tempted to get a pair, but I’m not much of a bird person.

Hi! Currently we have a dog, three tadpoles which are quickly becoming frogs (frogblog), and a fishtank full of guppies. I had a sheltopusik legless lizard (giant glass snake) for a very long time, but he is no longer with us. Anyone have questions about herps (that would be reptiles or amphibians) I know a good bit about them, as I'm the kind of person to overdose on information. If I don't know the answers, I know where to find them!
I have kept in the past, hamsters, gerbils, rats, one rabbit (to whom I was deathly allergic), a chicken, cats, dogs, frogs, turtles, parakeets, a parrot (I'm also deathly allergic to birds, it turned out)...I'm sure there are more I'm forgetting at the moment. And I even worked in a pet store for a short time until I just couldn't take the stress of seeing those poor animals being so mistreated anymore.
