I fucking love animals. I've had a lot of pets. I had a cat growing up as a kid, then it got cancer and died when I was 19 or 20. I'd had the thing since I was 5, so that was actually surprisingly tough. Then I found a stray little kitten about a month later in the pouring rain. Fucking thing fit into the palm of my hand easily. It was sick and covered in mucus so I put in the bathroom and ran hot water in the shower for an hour so the steam would help clear up its sinuses. Gave it some antibiotics from the Humane Society and it was as good as new. It was a really cool cat, totally out of control in all the right ways. Then it got hit by a car and I rushed it to the vet but it died that night.
I was devastated so I went 180 degrees in the other direction and got two pitbulls from a professional breeder. A blue male and a red female. Fucking beautiful dogs with incredible looks. But when I moved I had to get rid of them so I only had them for about 5 years. Naturally, that was devastating as well, so I went back to cats. I have two right now, and to be honest, I don't like their attitudes or the way they look at me. I think I'm going to get rid of them and get another pitbull, or maybe a Doberman or a Cain Corso.
I also have a pair of flying geckos and I used to have a green iguana, a real big fucker. But those things need their own goddamned room when they get toward full size, so I sold him to a friend. I used to have an albino ferret and I've had a couple pet rattlesnakes. One was fully grown, 4 feet, and I kept it locked up in a big 75 gallon fish tank. You haven't seen anything until you've seen one of these things take on a big fucking guinea pig!
I've also had exotic goldfish (ryukyus, black Moors and lionheads), about 200 cichlids, and a ball python that got out while staying at a friend's house while I was on vacation, ate her fucking pet rabbit and then "mysteriously" disappeared.
Oh yeah, I had big Boer goat once about two years ago. I got it for free when it was young to keep my yard clean, but I didn't realize that the males get up to 250 lbs, so I had it slaughtered when it was about 200 lbs and ate a shitload of goat meat for about six months. I tried to sell it on here, but I think everyone thought I was full of shit.
So that's my pet history.
