We have 1 cat (Razberry), who we adopted from The Humane Society five years ago. The thing I love most about her is when I'm sitting on the couch, she'll jump up right next to me and just sit there and stare at me until I pet her. She also "protects" me while I'm in the bathroom, sitting outside the door, not moving until I open it and start to walk out. What are your favorite things about your pets?

Razberry sounds like an exceptional cat! I've always been a cat lover, and a random cat I found at a pet store for ten dollars has proven to be the best cat I've ever had. Her name is Iris. She is the sweetest little kitten ever. She is about seven months old. She is black and a little fluff ball and we believer her to be at least part Siberian. She is the chillest cat I have ever had. What made me decide to get her is that I asked to hold her in the pet store and she just let me hold her and pet her and wasn't scared at all and just chilled in my arms for about a half hour, not once trying to get away. She will follow me around and when I stop walking she will lay down right next to my feet and purr just because she is close to me. If I am laying down or sitting in bed she will lay as close to me as possible and I don't even have to pet her for her to purr like crazy just from being so close to me. If I do pet her however, she loves it and will purr louder and kneed really animatedly, making it look like she's doing little jazz exercises, it is the cutest thing ever. She will then lick my hand for a really long time if I continue to pet her, and will try to get really close to my face and lick my face. She's the sweetest little thing ever and has never done anything wrong or ever bit or scratched me for any reason. It is such a relief because my first cat after living on my own is very temperamental and will sometimes bite or scratch me for no reason, so it's nice to have such a sweet kitten.

I have a Jack Russell Terrier and a Chihuahua. They are my girlz. Roxie often comes to work with me because she knows it is a "no bark" zone. Her quiet antics often keep a smile on my face while on the phone with customers. She is also my "trainer" as she sits at the bottom of the exercize equipment when I do my workouts. I like to pretend she will growl and snap at me if I quit too early. This keeps me motivated. Either way, when I tell her "Roxie, lets go to work" or "Let's go work out girl" she knows where to go and what to do. Mollie is learning but she is not as docile as ole Roxie. She is only a couple of years old but is oh, so happy to see me when I get out of work. She also randomly comes and checks on me when I am on the treadmill. They are my other set of children and I would not trade them for the world.

We are about to get a little boy Chihuaua that was born the week before Christmas. I can't wait!

My cat Loves to play fetch.. she'll lug her mouse to me to have me throw it, then she will go get it and bring it back to my husband , he'll throw it then she will again bring it back to me I'll throw it ...etc etc... However, she enjoys doing this at 2-3 AM...:eek:

Our cat, Moses, loves to play fetch - he will only do it with balls we make for him out of paper! He is always trying to open up a notebook or get into my folders to drag out a sheet of paper so I will make him a toy to fetch - gotta love it!!!

I have a JRT (Jack Russell Terrier) who was a rescue from a family who thought their 2 year old daughter would catch Demodex mites from her. The humane society did not want her and we had always wanted a JRT. Humans have demodex in their eyebrows any way and the only way for it to be transmitted to another living creature is from mother dog to puppy when they are born. Demodex live in the hair follicle. She came to us at 3 months old and we have had her for nearly 12 years now. She is my work buddy and she also "snoopervises" when I am doing HiiT training on the treadmill. I love the ole' girl to the moon and back.

We also have a Chihuahua that is a rescue. A neighbor got her as a puppy and, before she was a year old, they started to put her in a cage 23 hours a day. The one hour she was let out was on a short leash to drink runoff from the roof of the house. I talked them into letting me have her. She is spunky and full of personality. She is the most excited one to see me when I get off work and that just makes my day.

They are truly a pair and I love them to pieces. They are there through ups and downs and are great! Tomorrow, we are travelling 2 states away to pick up a brand new addition to our pack. An baby chihuahua. I can't wait! Our four legged family will be complete!

What about you?:)

The amount of unconditional love my pup gives me <3 My black lab, Toby, just turned 4.

Razberry sounds adorable! I have 3 dogs. One Jack Russell and 2 chihuahuas. The Jack Russell and older Chi dog were rescues and the puppy is a new "purchased" addition. My favorite thing about them is that when they are not snuggling my feet while at work, they guard my office door. No matter how many times I come out of my office during the day, they act like they are ecstatic to see me. It puts a smile on my face and sometimes I will purposely not let them in so I know I can see that reaction when I come out.

I have 4 Ragdoll cats whom I love to bits, they are the most placid cats you would ever meet, until Oct last year I also had a beautiful dog who was a bit nuts but very obedient and loving. Ex husband got custody of her as he kept the house with suitable yard for a working dog :(

I have an older cat that I took in. He is a little charmer. I think he may have mild separation anxiety. Anyways, I took him in because he was outside and declawed. He appeared to be homeless. Every night he has to sleep with me. He actually paws me to cover him up and I wrap my arm around him. I never have known a cat so cuddly and it is a shame someone just left him behind and homeless.

He follows me around the house and curl up at my feet just to be close.

I love to hear my cat purr when he's all cuddled up close to me. It's one of the most satisfying feelings to me :)

My new cat is the most grateful animal I have ever seen. She was a rescue in desperate need when she showed up, and more than any other animal I've encountered she seemed to recognize we were trying to help her even when it was unpleasant. She's thoroughly settled into being an indoor cat now, and blossoming from desperate, clingy, and easily confused into a playful, fearless goofball.

My male Shih Tzu is a very sweet dog. I like his ways of being alert when there is a stranger or a guest outside. He even knew how to entertain our guests and friendly towards them.

My dog is the BEST hiking partner...she makes me feel safe all alone out in the woods :)

We have a dog (Polly, black lab) and a cat (Maisy), we had Polly for two years before we got Maisy as a kitten, and from the day we brought Maisy home the pair have been inseparable! I find it unbelievable how close they are, to the point where Maisy will curl up with Polly in her dog basket! It's insanely cute:p

Nothing beats coming home to finding my lovely cat waiting for me at the door.

09-20-2016, 09:00 AM
I am the proud mom of a 9 y/o and a 2 y/o pitbulls, who are simply two goofballs, the older one is lazy but you call his name and he just rolls over to get belly rubs, The youngest is crazy and could easily kill you with his epic tail wagging. When I'm with him, he's always on the hunt for lizards because he knows I am scared of them.

My sweet cat knows when I'm upset, sick or down, I don't know how she knows, but she does, whenever I'm sad or sick, she jumps on top of my belly and stays there purring and letting me pet her. When I'm calmed down, she gets down and lies down near me

The unconditional love. I have 4 dogs and 2 cats, 5 of which sleep with me. They bring me so much joy.

My favourite thing about my dog is his unwavering love and loyalty!

10-31-2016, 07:31 PM
My Cliff was also adopted. He was found walking around in a dump! I don't know how he survived in the streets. He is such a scaredy dog! I have had him for 4 years. He loves to cuddle with me and is always next me. He won't go for a walk unless I am the one holding the leash, and won't get in the car unless I am around. He's my little baby.
We just had a baby last year so he's has become best friends with his little brother. It's funny because they are either hugging and kissing each other or fighting....Like siblings!!!

Their love and loyalty and cozy cuddles. I've always had pets. I currently have two cats and three dogs. :D
