From the list below, which animals will you choose to be your pets: 1. Dog 2. Cat 3. Hamster 4. Rabbit 5. Bird 6. Tortoise For me, I would choose either dog o hamster. I think that dogs are very loyal pets. It will protect me and will play with me when I am sad or alone. I choose hamster because I feel that it is very cute. I can see it playing in the cage and see how it eats and sleep. It would be very cute. Which one would be your choice? Why?

lol. So interesting. I love animals but now I don't have any of them. But for me, I like them all except the bird. The best should be DOG. You know what. Because my girlfriend like the dog most. Perhaps that's the main reason for me to choose DOG. Besides, I like it since they knows human quite well. They have got high intelligence comparing with other animals and being act just like a pretty kid. In my area, most people around me just like dogs, they would regard their dog pets as their sons and daughters. How sweet.

Hi there! Right now, I have three pet dogs: Jaguar (doberman), Balto (shih-tzu), and Gonner (a mixed-bred German shepherd); I also have a talking bird Mynah. All of us in the family love these pets and take good care of them because they've been with us for years already, especially Mynah. They're a bit expensive to attend to though.

A talking bird?! I would LOVE having one of those. Unfortunatly, I've never owned a bird or know anyone who does. I will probably get one in the coming years, because I've always wanted a bird. My parents are against getting a bird because we have a cat!

well ,as for me i`d go with the turtle , since my apartment is a small one and a bit crowded , and i really dont like birds that much, a turtle needs the minimum in everything min space, min maintenance, min care, min attention guess i`m not a pet person really..... sry

1. Dog - Since I always wanted one, but I want a puppy since I want it to grow getting use to me instead of a senior dog where it still has love for it's former owner. 2. Bearded Dragon Lizard - Since they look fun to have around 3. Fruit Bat - Since I want to learn more about them and I think they're kind of cute since their faces kind of look like foxes. 4. Falcon - Since they are cute birds of prey and I petted one before 5. Owl - Burrowing owl or snow owl since they look fun to have around and feed 6. Snake - To keep people who are afraid of them away. But it's just for show. I need to learn how to handle them first. Hahaha. 7. Hedgehog - They're cute and prickly looking. XD 8.Tropical fish - They're so pretty to look at

I have had all of those pets through my life. I now have a two dogs (a one year old and a six week old), I have a miniature gerbil. I would love to get a cat, but I don't think the dogs would get along very well with them. I think it would also be neat to have a bird. I love our dogs. They are members of our family and are like furry children to us.

Me, although I like them sometimes, I dont want to take care of them. I dont live in the province where we have grounds to let them live and go around, they should be in big areas and they should not be put in cage. Now that I am in the city I dont have place to put them in. Besides I am not really used taking care of pets. But I do love them but to be with any one ot them always, I dont like.

I'd have to say dogs or cats. The only problem I have with keeping a dog as a pet is the fact that you have to take them out for a walk at all hours of the day. I've had plenty of dogs in the past when I was younger and did not look forward to getting up real early for those walks. Cats are great. No walking required. They go to the bathroom by themselves in their litter box. You can even go on vacation for a day or two if you set out plenty of food and water and they'll be fine. Hamsters remind me too much of mice. Although we may get one some day just to appease my daughter. Rabitts are o.k. but the cages they stay in are disgusting and always smell. Never had a tortoise before, at least not yet...

CATS!!!!!i love them....they are just different because actually they are intelligent..when you have a cat for a pet you actually don't own it..you get enslaved by it...you can'y boss cats around..they are kinda independent and self reliant..and they are mysterious,too...but when they warm up to you,they are cute and really cuddly..i just adore cats!

I would choose cat. I love cats ever since I was a kid. My great grandmother who raised me always tell me that cats have nine lives. They are also very sweet and they even go beside you in bed to sleep. They can be trained like other animals and they have nice furs. My husband and I loves Himalayans and Siamese breeds. We love cute cats but they are expensive and we are not allowed here in our unit to have any kind of pets.

I'd choose a cat or a tortiose because i love those furry creatures and tortoises, because i like to see them crawl around and let them retreat into their shell when they're afraid. I have a cat now, very pretty, look into my profile for her picture =] and i HAD a tortiose once before my granny went and flush it down the toilet.. tsk tsk....You know old people, they can't see properly and she thought that the container just contained dirty water and seem to have flushed it down the toilet bowl...I was crushed, that's for sure...I loved my tortoise even though itwas small, i wanted to see it grow... Ohwells, i'm never getting a tortoise again for fear that my granny would throw it again...AHA..

Well i'm a dog lover and i can't imagine myself taking care of another type of pet when dogs are very much available anywhere. I love any kinds of dogs because i think they're the friendliest pet a person can have. I think dogs are excellent pets because they are loyal, friendly and most of all they're playful. The best thing about taking care of dogs is that they're easy to maintain. It's like taking care of a baby. You know like, take a bath, feed and play.

These days I have two dogs which are really loving and special companions. They are miniature poodles called Secret and Magic. I have always wanted a dog and so having two of them is double the pleasure. When I was a child my family had cats. I didn't know that I was allergic to their until I was sixteen years old. I had a pet rabbit and my sister had a guinea pig when I was a young child. When I was a teenager I had rabbits, gerbils, budgies and stick insects. My mum had a tortoise and a parrot for many years. My poodles are non-moulting so I am fine with them and they don't upset my allergies. Dogs are perfect pets for me but I do miss cats. Cats upset my allergies really badly. It is wonderful to at last have pets that I am not allergic to.

if i can only choose one, it will definitely be a cat. i've got three cats at home and i can't begin to describe the joy they bring me. however, if i can choose multiple i guess i'll choose all. i love animals and always dream of having a lot of pets. sadly i live in an apartment and space constraint is a big issue. cats are the most loyal animals i've known. some may disagree but i find dogs a little too friendly. it's like they love attention, whether given by family or stranger. that's not the case for cats. my girl only comes to me for attention and that makes me feel special.

I have had cats as pets before I had two not at once thought. I have had dogs as pets growing up we had 3 not at once. I had a rabbit as a pet. I had I bird growing up. I have had a turtle when I was younger. And I have had a hamster as a pet as well. I would choose any of them I like all of them there all great pets to have. Easy to care for. I wanted to do something different so I now have a ferret for a pet her name is FEBE we have had her for almost three months now she will be 6 months old on the 9th we bought her at 3 months old.

Galena did you ever have a ferret or ferrets before. This is my first one I had a discussion I wrote about it looking for any advice or any thing people know about ferrets therfore I have never had one till now. I have been reading ferrets for dummies. Please let me know if you have any advice or comment or anything to share about them thank you

it was a long time ago now, and as a child, I don't really know the full details of how best to look after them. we had ours in an aviary type enclosure, with lots of tunnels, branches, toys and a washing up bowl of water for them to play in. they're very playful, so the best tip is to give them as many means to play as possible.
