Aw, why can't you get one? Allergies? Parental restrictions? My parents point-blank REFUSED to let me get a rabbit when I first asked, but after a year of intense research and begging, they finally caved. Don't give up a-hard-days-night-ringo-15

I dunno, we just aren't in the position to get a cat right now. (It would be a family cat.) Our first and last cat, ten years ago, was very bad about abusing the litter-box and getting abused by neighbouring cats, plus we live on kind of a busy street, so I think that has something to do with it.

That's a shame, maybe someday. 🙁

Here's a related question: If you could have any pet (not including species you already own) what would it be? I'd like a horse, but it'll never happen.

A cat, obviously, and a bird would be cool too. I love parrots, they're amazingly intelligent. It'd be a high-commitment kind of pet to have, though -- they often bond with you for life.

Talking birds are scary as hell. If we're talking high functioning animals, i'd much rather go with a primate like Koko the gorilla. What i love about monkeys and apes is that they can't speak so you don't have to worry about getting the shit scared out of you but they are still very smart and can communicate through sign language.

But the best pet of all IMO is a baby. You may call it cheating but when you think about it, raising a baby is like taking care of a pet.

Actually, pets do grow up, it's just not as obvious because they're not nearly as smart as us.

Duh, obviously. I meant 'grow up' in the colloquial sense of 'grow into a mature adult human that can be independent of its parents', which obviously a dog or cat never will, because it's not a human.

Cats? Why yes indeed, let me tell you a tale. I'm thinking of adding a second cat to my first cat, Noot. Mainly because she's very social and I don't want her to get bored and become a fuddy-duddy kitty. Then I would have to rename her Snooty Nooty. That would be difficult for a cat to bear.

She is the kind of cat to demand pats and cuddles before she has a nap, and I think that is very sensible. I just need to find an obliging cat to take over this duty from time to time.

How could you refuse such cuteness? (That's a rhetorical question, not a candid one). There is a slight danger that the answer to Cats? is more cats but fortunately economics prevents a full-blown attack of cattery.

If I could have any pet, I would want a horse. Or an elephant. But realistically, I can see myself having 5 more dogs over the course of my life. It really sucks that they're so much better than humans, but they don't live nearly as long.

Here's another question:

Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Or in between? I've always been introverted. I hate parties, and I would much rather do this all day

I just realized that most people here probably spend their free time on this site or listening to music alone instead of socializing. john-lennon-salute_gifa-hard-days-night-paul-7

Such a forum does tend to skew toward the nerdish introverts who spend time in their rooms conversing with others through writing rather than those exhausting real-world social interaction things. a-hard-days-night-paul-7 (Yes, I am an introvert. I enjoy socialisation... like once a week, with people I know well. ahdn_george_06)

And I talk to myself all the time. This is primarily because I sometimes think out loud, and I think too much, therefore I talk too much, and I don't want to bore other people too much. a-hard-days-night-john-6
