We have raccoons, an owl in our grove, a hawk eating the pheasants, the pheasants(I feed them), wandering cats, deer(when the dogs are gone), Moose if she gets loose(that's the neighbor's horse), cows if they are out to pasture, snkaes in the summer, voles, moles, mice & rats.

Then there's the people who live a mile away's recently altered Yorkie. They let him loose to roam all of the time. He broke through a window of a house of a person who lives 2 miles away from them to knock up their 2 year old Lab. They *were* going to have her bred to a purebred Lab stud, but now they have Yorkie/Lab pups. The next time the Yorkie showed up, they had him neutered. If he shows up at anyone's place again, the police told us to call animal control. The so called owners will loose their doggy.

lionessrampant, have you considered a Lab/Yorkie mix?
I guess I shouldn't joke about that. At least all of the pups have homes.

I have a puppy Shana who is living on the 20th floor of a New york City highrise and doing quite well.... i have a lovely picture of her walking down broadway with her dad..... these are Retrievers.... Shana is a Flat Coated Retriever.....

I don't have any roaches, thank goodness! Yikes, you have a LOT of non-furred pets!

I have 3 cats inside. However, I also have 8 fosters inside currently, and 3 barn cats that I see, and I believe I have two to three more feral barn cats who I never see. (Yes, everyone is speutered!) And one dog, an akita named Misty. And two horses and a pony. No pet bugs or fishies!

What an interesting thread!

Besides my 2 kitties, I've got 2 dogs (a pug and a pembroke corgi), 2 bunnies (angora and mini rex), 10 birds of assorted varieties (from canary to conure), 1 beta fish, 1 bearded dragon and 30 assorted chickens! And I downsized incredibly from last year!

According to my husband... the zoo
3 cats
1 new dog (poodle)

4 cats if you count the one from the neighbors who eats here every morning, if he/she officially joins the pack, that will be the 3rd cat that has jumped ship from their house to mine. I just found out that Gracie, who we thought was dumped here was from their house too.

Our home consists of the 5 cats (well, 4 now...still not used to that), 1 cockatoo, and a 20 gal. aquarium with roughly a dozen or so tropical fish.

Oh yeah! You got amazing pets, the roaches and spotted salamanders are one of my favorite pets I had.

I have five cats and two dogs, and used to keep Siamese Fighting Fish, but haven't for a while.

I'm dying for a Bengal, and I really, really want a rabbit!!
