Just wondering if anyone else may have their own small zoo or other animals besides their precious kitties? :) Do tell!

I've been an animal lover since I was a small child. My first pets were gerbils. My second a cat, then third a rabbit. Since my childhood I've had of course cats, dogs, rabbits, gerbils, hamsters, mice, birds, ducks, chickens, ferrets, chinchillas and I use to ride horses everyday.

It may sound silly to some but my life would be miserable without animals! Kind of like an artist with two broken hands.

My husband and I have seriously discussed having a small farm after retirement. With silkie chickens, rabbits and small animals of the like. :) It's a dream of course. haha Maybe someday though!

I have four cats and one foster cat. (My foster leaves this week to be adopted out.) Two dogs, two ferrets and one chinchilla. I recently lost my three mice, sadly. I don't plan on anymore inside animals anytime soon because boy oh boy they are work. But I've been looking for some silkie chickens! :)

So, what other animals do you have and how many kitties?
I feel you animals are my passion. I have 10 cows, 2 goats(Maizie and Gertrude), 4 dogs(Spot the rat terrier, Tessa our German Shepard, Nyla the Texas cattle dog , and my puppy Adalaide an Aussie Shepard), 3 1/2 cats(the ones a male that even though he’s neutered or spayed idk the term for boys runs around everywhere and is only at our house when he wants food his names Spar, then two rescues named Gizmo and Greta, and one that adopted our family he was a stray that was extremely emancipated and I nursed him back to health but his name is Darwin), a turkey named Jasper, my donkey Tyrell, 3 duckies names Daisy, Daffodil, and Deliah, 8 Chickens(Butterball the rooster, and our hens Charlotte(black wyondote), Princess(Calico princess), ruby and pearl(saphire gems), Perigrine(rockie), Caroline and nugget(black lacies), I used to have a hedgehog named Harley but she passed away this past fall with WHS.

My beloved Sussex girl passed unexpectedly today. She didn't seem to be ill or in discomfort.

View attachment 276025

She will be missed by my younger feathered girls, Ocha and Uri. And by Missy and me, off course.
RIP, sweet Sussex girl.
My two feathered girls, Ocha and Uri, died last night, after being attacked by a marten. I forgot to lock them in their chicken coop. Shame on me ...

I"m so sorry you lost your girls. they were beautiful. They will brush by you on the soft breezes, bound to you as you are to them. they won't blame you, they count the marten as destiny which can not be denied or avoided.

Thank you for your support, K Kflowers . I can't believe I lost my 3 chickens in only two weeks time.

It makes me sad to see the empty chicken coop and run...

Love is a moment's escape from heartbreak. I suspect there are some orphaned hens waiting for you.

My sincere and deepest regrets to Missy and you. :hugs: I hope there will be new feathered friends frolicking in your chicken coop in the near future.

Thank you neely neely .
I really miss their cackling and chattering. Missy went to the empty chicken run today and just sat there for a few minutes. She seems a bit upset too.

I remember when we had not one but two duck nests by our house. Our kids who were young at the time were so excited. These were not ducks that we had brought to our house but rather wild ducks. We checked the nests every day without getting too close or disturbing anything. One day we found the eggs were strewn along the side of the house away from the nest and had been broken. Unfortunately another animal had attacked them. Neighbors told us blue jays like duck eggs but regardless we felt terrible. :sniffle: I'm so sorry for your loss.
