I have 2 parakeets, 2 goldfish, 2 cats, 1 dog, 1 betta, 1 shrimp, 1 horse, and 2 starlings.
I got my dog from an animal shelter around 10 years ago. Sweetest little dog ever! He's grown up so much. His name is Butch.
Pumpkin the orange Domestic Shorthair showed up at our house, barely able to meow, malnourished and very much a kitten. Now she makes up for her sore throat by never shutting up!
Simon came almost exactly a year ago. He was just sitting under my parent's window, meowing his head off! I went out to feed him....longest cat I have EVER seen, at 3 feet from nose to tail. He was so thin you could literally loop your fingers around his waist. His title is Simon the Longcat.
Angel the budgie came along on Christmas Day, 2008. It was just a few months after my cockatiel Cookie had passed away. Angel was 3 months old when I got him, and I worked very hard at taming him. He's now super-tame and absolutely looooves people!
Skye was adopted in March of 2009. My uncle is a teacher, and a fellow teacher bought a parakeet for her 5 year old son, expecting him to know how to take care of it, and to take care of it. She was severely neglected (in a canary cage, under-exercised, overweight, extremely afraid of people, biting like no tomorrow). I worked with her and now she isn't afraid and will willingly sit on my shoulders and preen me.
Last year in June I decided that I wanted a goldfish. I saved up my money, bought a filter, decorations, and plants. I went to the pet store and out of an extremely overstocked tank, I picked out an itty bitty pink/white Pearlscale goldfish (female), the fattest and cutest one. The employee really crushed her fins when he caught her, but when I came home I put her in a 1 gallon tank next to my bed and I fell in love! She became very used to humans, did a little dance when I came into my room, and was just plain adorable. She stayed that way for a week. Then I put her into a 10 gallon tank on a different dresser. 3 months later I got Houston, a Black Moor goldfish. He was one of the fish that was originally with Pearl....poor Houston was extremely underfed, picked on, and his fins were shredded. I took pity on him and took him home. Both fish are very very very fat now (VERY healthy!) and share their 20 gallon tank on a DIFFERENT dresser
Now, a 20 gallon tank is much too small for 2 fancy goldfish, but I compensate for that with a 68 gallon filter!!
Oh yes. Omelette was bought by me in January (I have no clue when). I went to the store where I bought my goldfish, and there were7 bettas in cups lined up against a sink. Poor things!! They were all Veiltails, blue and red, and very neglected. The only ones that looked like they would survive were Omelette and another red fish. So I took home Omelette. Now the picky boy lives in a 3 gallon tank next to my bed with his Ghost shrimp friend, Ash. I got Ash, Brock, and Misty to stop Om from tailbiting. I gave Brock to my friend, and Om ended up eating Misty. Now Ash is like a ninja-shrimp, trying to avoid being eaten.
I got my horse 3 months ago. Her name is Nasdaq and she's 1/4 Arabian, 3/4 Paint. She's built as though she's half and half though. I love her to bits! She's the sweetest 4-year-old horse I know xD
My 2 starlings I got a month ago.... They were at the stable, in a nest on the eve of a roof. Their mother kicked them out due to mites, and I took them home because there are at least 25 cats at the barn, and there is no way they'd survive alone.
So they're my wonderful, talkative, zooming around babies!
I love them so much, but they're going to a new home soon.
I think that's all my pets. I'll probably be getting more though xD
