      I love all my companion animals that I’ve had in my life. However, my favorite has to be a chicken. yep, a chicken. Chickens and roosters make wonderful pets. They are fast becoming a therapy animal for children with autism, and also for people who are allergic to cats and dogs, their poop collected in their chicken diapers (yes, there are chicken diapers, in fact, an entire pet chicken industry) is great for the garden, and they eat any bug they come across, in the house or outside. Instead of spending 30.00 for a finch or parakeet, they are just getting a hen for about 10.00. You can hug a chicken, but you cannot hug a parakeet. So for me? it’s a pet chicken. My family loved to put my pet chicken in the basement once in the while, as they eat any bug they come across, and that’s another plus. I love cats and dogs, but my favorite pet is a ‘house hen’.

      I am officially cat-obsessed. No, not exactly in a crazy cat lady/animal hoarder way. However, I know I am always going to have cats. I particularly like tortoiseshell cats because the stereotype is that they’re feisty meanie pants but I’ve always had sweetheart shells. I can’t wait to have my own apartment so I can officially adopt a pair of shells for my own!

      Many! Lol. I love animals, but have to say I’ve had more cats as pets than anything. I have a major soft spot for kitties and currently have two as pets. I also have a turtle, which I never expected to have (babysitting him for my niece and I fell in love with him). I never knew a turtle could be so entertaining and sweet! Myrtle the turtle (his name lol) actually has a personality, which I never knew turtles really had. I knew cats & dogs did, but this came as a surprise. He’s a Red Ear Slider, if anybody cares. 😉

      I also have had a dog (part weenie) since childhood. He’s my side kick. Aside from that, I ended up with a hamster (Hubert) who I fell in love with while babysitting too. You see, it’s a common thing for me. He was another of my sister’s pets which end up being mine. Never knew I’d have so much love for a hamster, either until it happened. He died last summer. 🙁 A very upsetting experience.

      I guess all of them are my favorites. Ha Ha.

      I’ve had cats, dogs, a fish, a hamster, a canary… well. They weren’t all mine, but I’ve lived with them at various times.

      Cats are my favorite by far. They match my pace of life, and they’re soft and cute.

      My very favorite pet that I ever had was my dog Annie. She was a stray that came to us after being abused in the park; my friend’s brother had brought her home and I was the one who got to keep her. She was what we called a circus dog because she just trained so easily. She was such a good girl, but she ended up really hating kids so after my son was born she went to live with my grandpa who had just lost his dog. They were perfect companions for one another. He spoiled her and she gave him love and she was his only dog and there were no kids around.

      Oh my goodness. This is awesome to hear! I had no idea chickens could be so great, much less therapeutic. Glad you shared that. I’ve been around chickens most of my life growing up. We had several “batches” as kids, and my grandmother always had/still has chickens. Interesting info. Maybe I should get a chicken again. 😉

      I wish to have a Lion as a pet. If only I can.♥ I fell in love with it when I read a book about a couple who had a lion as a pet and the lion is kind of an herbivore because he won’t eat anything with blood. And the rest of the pets are different breeds of dogs – 10 to be exact.♥

      I am not really a cat lover. I am more of a dog because they sometimes act like humans. I know, they understand our ways and that is how they are able to live with us!
