Animals I have known

Animals I’ve had in my life:
Thing & Djuna = my current cats.
The Alien, Floyd, Mildred and Gracie = all cats.
Ssadi = a corn snake
Grendle = a leopard gecko
Shakespeare = a Chinese Box Turtle
Athos, Aramis, and Porthos = frogs
Chaeron = an iguana
A multitude of mice (all dinner for the snake)

While living with my family, we had:
Honey, a cat, plus Wookie, Winnifred, and 4 other kittens
Pookey, originally named Ebony = a cat
Patches = a feral cat we “tamed” who promptly had 5 kittens under my bed
Jacob, Albert, Buster, Mamma Dog, Little Dog, Sasquatch, Puppy, Rabbit, Sam, Ninianne, and various other dogs
William, George, and Martha = rats
Teddy = a hamster
Numerous fish
Katie and various other rabbits
Thomas, Winchester, Shoshone, Baby, and various other horses
Jiminy the burrow
About half a dozen pigs
The same number of cows
Dozens of chickens, ducks, geese, turkeys, peacocks, and guinea hens
Possibly six (if not more) goats
I seem to recall a few sheep in the mix, too

How many animals did you grow up with?

  1. Not nearly as many as you! Timmy was my Boston Terrier. There were numerous hamsters, partly because the new one I bought soon had 9 babies!) But that's really it. Would have loved to have as many animals as you have had. I'm trying to work that into my life as an adult!
