    they don't let us have pets here in my dorms, but i take care of my aunt's pets on the weekends often...

    there's Sammy

    and Sydney

    they're hilarious; they love to play together. it's funny, Sammy, the cat, is the one that never has enough, even though she always beats him up. he always cries when we get mad that they're too rowdy and send Sydney to the backyard (Sammy can't go outside).

    I have two kitties and my boyfriend captured a Chinese Mantis, which we keep as a pet also. The mantis is pretty neat, actually.

    Here is one of my hamsters. His name is Tama and he gets to run around my computer desk, although he has managed to climb down the power cable a couple of times...my other hamster, Yuki, is camera shy and wil not stand still for a photo. He is all white and does not have any stripe along his back. By the way, Yuki is Japanese for Snow and a fiting name.

    I guess i could rename them both G5 and iMac.

    Yeah, he's great. Very active and healthy, too - he can jump about 5 feet vertically right now.

    Growing up I always had a dog. My other pets during my youth was fish, hamster, parakeet, and a cockatiel. I was able to get the cocktiel to talk.
    Now I have 3 dogs.

    we have two african pygmie hedgehogs... an albino and a dwarf. we lost a second albino just a couple of weeks ago, cancer. and we lost a third a few months back. :(

    considering getting a pet raccoon, not sure albino or not... i prefer albino animals (besides their striking beauty) for the fact that they wouldn't survive in nature, so it's less horrible to keep them confined.

    Duff-Man says.....he has since been on a bit of a diet....he had hit the 20lb plateau and could hardly jump on the bed...he has since lost a few and is a bit more active and more "normal" for his size (he has always been a "big" cat)...it was hard to keep food out for the kitten all the time when he would just vacuum it all up...now that the kitten has grown a bit I can be a bit more careful with the feeding times....oh yeah!

    yeah, i can imagine. believe it or not, "our" dog Sydney will eat the cat's food if we let her in the house while it's out on the floor. it's pretty funny..

    shadowfax -- is that siamese actually cross-eyed, or is it just the photo? my folks have a few dogs, and one of them is wall-eyed. (that's the opposite of cross-eyed; do other people use that expression?) it's a pretty dumb-looking dog, which is ok, because it's a pretty dumb dog.

    no pets myself. i've contemplated a fishtank, but my roommate's cat does not allow for that possibility. and i don't have the spare $$$ to really support a "real" pet, unfortunately. although i'd love a dog.

    You could purchase Marine Aquarium for your Mac. Then you could have virtual fish.

    Marine Aquarium is pretty cool, but I've noticed that the better your display is, the worse the picture quality seems. I guess high resolution just makes all the pixels stick out like a sore thumb if it isn't meant for high resolution viewing.

    yes, siamese cats appear cross-eyed. it's one of the marks of a real siamese cat, though not all siamese cats are cross-eyed. it looks funny at first, but it doesn't affect how well he sees. his vision is much better than ours, heh. you get used to it after awhile. i hardly notice anymore, though i thought it was freaky when i first met him.
