Do you have any pets? Parent Bloggers wants to know.
I've had pets my whole life. Cats, dogs, fish, and birds. Just your basic pets. Right now we have a bird, a Ring Neck Dove. He coos and laughs all day long.
I've been thinking about getting another dog or cat but I don't want to mess with litter boxes or poop in the yard. So that's been keeping me from getting one. I've enjoyed being a litter box free house for several years now.
I can't imagine a childhood without pets though. I think it helps kids have responsibility in caring for something. They can learn to feed/water the animals. Pets also provide another loving relationship for kids. I enjoyed cuddling and playing with animals.
Here's a few of the pets I've had. I'd post pictures but the scanner isn't working.
Paco - a Miniature Schnauzer. He was the pet we had the longest. He would stand on his hind legs and do a little dance for a piece of hot dog or cheese.
Bugsy - an Abyssinian cat. This cat loved to sleep with me and also loved to curl up with the dog Paco.
Kitty - a white stray cat. I petted him one day outside and he just stayed around. I talked my parents into letting him come into the house. We only had him about 6 months and then he got hit by a car.
Wheeler - another stray cat that was crazy! We only had him a few months as well.
Tiffy (I hated that name) - a Manx cat. That was pregnant when we got her. She had 4 kittens.
Indy - an orange mix cat. This was one of Tiffy's kittens that we kept.
We've had other dogs but they were when I was very little and I don't remember them that much.
My niece Pony just got a basset hound puppy named Bandit. He is so cute and floppy eared. I saw him last night and it made me want a dog. But then I think of the work and decide against it.
If your wanting a pet but not the clean up and care Club BK is giving away iDogs in their Big Kid meals right now. They come with a costume, sticker and a light up dog. Great way to have a pet without all the work.
