Are you like your pet?? - page 2
They say you start, or rather, your pet starts to look like you after a while. I know mine does. We have 2 German Shepherds and a Border Collie. The Shep (male called Tzar) is so much like me we... Read More

I could sleep 22 hours a day, have my back rubbed (and maybe my tummy ) every night. Someone else would take care of me and clean up my messes and I could pay attention to them only if I particularly felt like it at the moment. Whenever I whined, they would offer me food or some treat.
Ahh, the life of a cat. (or at least my cats!)

Not my style
But he does love lazy days around the house and licking chocolate off my fingers (if I leave him any)

Poor thing, just could not get the mating thing straight. He started off pokin' the female in her eye, then in her ribs.. she would try to "guide" him in the right direction and it was just hilarious to watch. Finally, he sired 2 big litters before he started having prostate trouble and I had to get him fixed. :stone
He's 13 now, still frisky with stiff hips.
Oh no, I'm thirty !#%@, still frisky with stiff hips!Last edit by LasVegasRN on May 24, '02

One of my horses is a gelding (2 years old last March), and is so fascinated with the world aroound him, thinks he is hot stuff, and occasionally cops an attitude. (Balls removed at 7 months!) My 8-year-old mare is a little insecure and can't bear to be without the gelding. Can be very opinionated but is generally easy-going.
One of my cats is aloof and very self-contained but she always wants to be in the same room as me- will never admit she's lonely. My other cat makes a beeline for me everytime I sit or lie down so she can get in my face and purr.
I would actually like to be more like my Sheltie, who loves absolutely everyone and would never harm a hair on any creature's head. She is the most joyous being I know. She plays happily with cats, ferrets, rabbits, and other dogs. She is fiercely protective of me and will not allow my collie to play with me. My collie is me on my days off- her favorite thing to do is nothing, horizontally! When she's really happy (rolling on the floor, having her ears rubbed) she moans, very loudly.
And lastly there is my husband but he deserves a thread of his own....
