I don't have pets around the house.  Raising a child was enough of taking care of someone else was enough for me.  No really a pet lover.

I have always had a pet of some kind.  I grew up on a farm.  We had cats and dogs through out my childhood.  I had a horse too  :)

AS we had our own kids, we have had cats, dogs, hermit crabs, and horses.

Absolutely.  We take our parrot on everything vacation.  He "helps" me fold laundry, do my hair, make toast in the morning, etc.  He really isn't much help, but he likes to participate.

Yes!  Our "canine son" is 12 years old now.  We have had him since he was 8 weeks old.  He is very much a part of our family.  My husband accuses me of treating Tommy better than I do him!!
Have a wonderful day!

When I was younger, we had cats that were part of the family.  The last dog (CuJo, my Labrador Retriever)  I had was part of my family.  Now I have cats that are not part of my family, but seem to have adopted me.  In having your cats and dogs as part of your family, you love them and they give you unconditional love.  Right now, I want to get myself a puppy, but my hubby won't let it stay in the house. :cat: :cat: :cat: :dog: :dog: :dog: :thumbsup: :rainbow: :rose:

yes they are, I often go without medical care, if something happens to one of them, and they are in need of medical care

Ive moved across country several times and my pets always go with me

If I have to move, I do not give my pets away, I find a home that will allow them

Yes I do. They are a big part of the family. They know how to get your attention when they want it. They watch you eat something and if they don't get any they give a sound of disgust. It is kind of funny
