    I lean towards dogs but have had 3 cats in my lifetime. And now I made friends with the neighbors cat but..she is not mine. I took a pic of her. She is strictly an outdoor cat but its been raining something fierce the last couple of days and I brought her in. She discovered MrGs bed real fast, lol. But she only wanted to stay for about 30 minutes then wanted out..rain or not. So, I let her out.

    Currently, I have no pets and won't get one, either. Pet sitting is fine with me.

    Anyway...do you have dog(s), cat(s), bird(s), snake(s) or some other loved fur/feathered/smoothskinned child?

    I lean toward cats because they are lower maintenance. I'm lazy that way. :p

    Of course, our cat likes to get one of her toy mice and meow at the top of her lungs in the middle of the night, so sometimes I lean more toward dogs.....

    I've always preferred cats, mostly because I'm lazy, and they're a little more self-sufficient. You get a new cat, throw them in the litter box, and they immediately know what it's there for. No house training. No having to take them outside all the time.

    I had two dogs and two cats. But one of my cats died recently, he had diabetes and he was having seizures and he died in front of me. It was awful.

    Yes, it sucks. I can relate.
    I hate being alone now but...I am just not ready for another furkid. Maybe once I am permanently settled. Maybe.
    They have a program here "Seniors that adopt senior pets get free vet care". That sounds well and good but...my heart is still dead from the last loss I suffered. I don't want to get attached and go thru it again after just a year or so. Free vet care or not.

    I like both cats and dogs. But if I were to get a pet, the first pet would be a dog. I actually want a beagle lol.
