because I'm procrastinating on actually Doing Things. Oh well, I'm not going to school yet if I even go this week so I don't have to watch the time and go to bed soon.
How many pets have you had at one time?
Right now, I think -- four. My cat, my dog, and my brother's gerbils. We sorta kinda have one other cat but she kinda... ran away slowly after we got our dog and someone a few blocks away took her in (she's an indoor-outdoor cat, like my other cat). I really miss her sometimes, but we see her every so often and as far as I know she's happy, so I'm okay, I think.
What is the strangest pet you have ever had?
I think my taste in animals is boring, really... I've only personally had a cat and a family dog.
What is the coolest trick you have ever taught a pet?
My dog can do "dance", where she gets up on her back legs and spins in a circle. I don't think I taught her that personally but it's cute.
Real animals: What animal have you always wanted as a pet?
Not counting the ones I've had? I wouldn't mind a rabbit, I really like them. But I think I'd rather have a cat than anything else because purring is so comforting to me -- I have a few memories of sobbing my eyes out while holding a purring cat to my chest to make me feel better and it always helped. (Also one time I was having Heart Issues (aka that one time I went to the ER) and before I actually went there my chest was hurting like a motherfucker and I put my cat on top of it and his purrs made me feel a little better). Also I just?? Love cats??? So much.
Imaginary animals: Describe the ideal pet, an animal that doesn't really exist.
Man, idk. A cat but bigger and purrs more often? A cat that won't try to escape? I mean, my cat goes outside and comes in at his leisure but I never stop being worried he'll get hit by a car, even if he's lived five (six?) years without it happening. Idk man, I'm happy with cats. I love cats.
