Just for fun. Are you a dog or Cat person? Birds or Rodents? Reptiles or Insects. Or do you just hate animals generally unless they are in your belly? Feel free to say here as well.

When I lived in Uganda I was offered a black faced vervet monkey for a pet. I was working with the Uganda Wildlife Authority at the time, so asked their for their view. Was told no - and they wanted to know who was offering it to me. I asked them what wild animal I could have as a pet, as I wouldn't have minded a lion - told them it would certainly keep any robbers out of my compound. This was a no also.

However, a crocodile would be fine. And no I didn't get one of these either, as I didn't have a moat.

I did have two dogs (for guarding the property along with my Ascaris), and a deaf cat.

Would still like a lion, wolf or cheetah.

My wife has a bit of a problem/obsession with Fluffy things.  So we have 5 dogs and 3 cats.  Busy house.  

In fairness I think we are more dog people as a family we do love the cats too its just the dogs get more of our time.  

In cases your wondering 5 dogs is too many. We meet a couple from time to time at Ashdown forest who have 18 dogs.   They never look particularly relaxed.  I'm glad my wife agrees so its unlikely we will go beyond 5.  

All the Best

Rest easy @windymiller - your car has only ever had one fluffy dog sat inside. The other two couldn’t fit - as @C8RKH would testify - them back seats are pointless 🤪

In fact if it helps - you could say one filthy bitch used to reside on the passenger side 👍

Well, if the economy goes to ratshit. The asteroid hits. And Covid Variant 69 turns us into flesh eating zombies. With that lot, at least you wont starve!

Alcohol. Sex. Tobacco. Drugs. Chocolate.  Meh! NOTHING in this world is as addictive as an Evora +0. It's not for babies!    

The first guy to ride a bull for fun, was a true hero. The second man to follow him was truly nuts!

No fish in the list? Fish for me Aquariums usually, but am debating whether to turn the stupid small pond in he garden into a Koi pond.

Wife/daughter insist on having hamsters, smelly noisy bloody things.

Don't start me on dogs as, lets just say, it is evident from threads on here that I have a very different opinion to most on here in respect of anything larger than a dachshund.  

A Lotus is for driving, pork is for breakfast.

I'm with you on dogs (and cats) as you know @Colin P. We are however in the minority but the environmental impact on said domestic pets is catastrophic. Or should that be dogastrophic?

I've always considered myself as a dog-person, growing up with my grandfathers German sheperds. But when I started helping out in the local animal shelter (about 25 years ago already) I quickly took a fancy to cats as well. Most of my past girlfriends had cats and I've had shared ownership of several of those (the cats...). When I see a cat on the street, I can't help but try and pet it, often with success.
Now we have a dog, a Cairn terrier with an attitude, we get along just fine. Might have gotten him addicted to Belgian fries. 🙂

I have made many mistakes in my life. Buying a multiple Lotus is not one of them.

I ticked the other box. I’m not taking any responsibility for the bloody things. :)

Remember the old saying - dogs have owners, cats have staff.

Regardless of that I'm still very much a cat person. The cat may have scratched a few carpets or brought in the odd almost dead / really dead thing, but the dogs have caused an unending amount of damage over the years. Not that I'm collecting evidence but the dogs combined have:

- chewed and spat out an expensive Harmony remote control, back to the original 5 individual remotes it was then
- chewed the corners of a lovely chunky cherry coffee table, but thoughtfully left one corner intact for me to enjoy
- destroyed an Amazon splurge of 6 CDs upon delivery, impressively imprinting teeth marks in all 6 as they popped through the letter box one by one
- scratched up leather sofas in the ritual of getting comfy; they're not even allowed on the sofas
- chewed the telephone wire going up the stairs to the network router thus knocking out the internet for a few days
- scratched up the inside of a brand new composite front door within days of fitting
- with their radioactive piss destroyed more lawns than global warming

I could go on but you get the idea. So yeah, I prefer cats!

Here's an old picture of our three actually sitting together:

Love cats, dogs, birds, reptiles.  Have had plenty of pets in my life but am violently allergic to fur, feathers, saliva etc. so never easy.  Hasn't stopped us having LOADS of cats but now that's all over as we (normally) are away a fair bit and the MIL is so dumb she'd kill a cactus.

Once you marry the bird it's not a good idea to mention the word 'serpent'. 😉

Do we get credit for the critters that roam the grounds? I pester the lions, bobcats, wolves, coyotes, bears, moose, elk, beavers, skunks, marten and deer that pass through my place with a fleet of game cameras. We'll watch the deer and an occasional bear but wouldn't know the rest were there if not for the pictures, and I don't have to feed any of them.

Our pair of black cats come in at night, my wife carries bear spray.

When I was young I always dreamt of having a monkey. Suffice to say it never happened and I grew up surrounded by cats. We started with one and ended up with a pack of five !

Nowadays I have a dog. On my second, the first got hit by a car 🙁

I am a dog covert now. Cats never showed much affection, they are rather ambivalent. My dog on the other is genuinely excited to be around me and probably loves me more than the family 😲

Looking for my first Lotus - A Giugiaro design Turbo Esprit - Message me if you know of one or considering selling yours
