    Well, I'm bored so I decided to make another stupid thread.

    So what are some pets that you want? I have always wanted an African Grey Parrot, but they are so damn expensive, and my ferret would probably eat it if I got one. And I have always wanted a little Squirrel Monkey, but they are illegal in Utah. (damn state) And I have wanted an African Spurred Tortoise ever since I went into a pet store one day and there was a big ass tortoise staring at me with lettuce hanging out its mouth. I'm not sure why I haven't got one of them yet, probably because they get so big (up to 200lbs) and they are a huge commitment since it would probably live longer than me. (they live 80-100 years)

    To tell you the truth mang, i really do hate animals. But fish... fish are different. I don't know what it is about them, but i used to have a few when i was young. Sadly the ones i had died quickly within a week due to the fact that this one big fish i had chased them around alot, and pretty much just beat the **** out of them. :lol:

    But i really do miss watching them mess around in there... kinda makes me wanna go out there and get some again.

    uhh racoon

    they are illegal, and as house pets they get obese, but damn are they cool, up until i wa s7 i grew up in a village with about 200 people in it and one of the people walked around with his pet racoon on his shouldors and what not

    it was so kick-ass

    I am currently saving up to buy a Cherry Head Conure or an Indian Ringneck Parakeet to add to the flock.

    Fish are probably my least favorite pet. They don't really do anything and just get boring. I would much rather have a pet that is more interactive.....

    If I could have any I'd want a wolf but thats not really a pet. So I'd want a monkey my grandma used to have one and I loved watching it and chasing it around.

    I've always wanted a penguin, but that would never work out. Kinda want a llama as well. Those big fluffy llama's that aren't really llama's and look like a mix between a llama and a sheep.

  9. a pet i want.......well, on a related topic i went to the pet store yesterday because theres a gun shop that me my bf and his friend wanted to check out and possibly buy another pistol for myself. well my boyfriends friend's now fiance was with us and she HATES guns. cant stand being near them, hates the noise, just all around is disgusted by them (liberal).

    so anyways in an attempt to make her happy while we all were going to look at guns, we went to the gun shop first to notice that they were closed (mind you my bf is driving). so we park in their parking lot and walk over to the pet store where the MINUTE i walk in, i see this little black and white shih tzu. automatically my heart just MELTED and i fell inlove. i didnt need to see any other dogs but this one. i looked at my bf with bright eyes and said "LOOK ITS A BABY CHUCHU!!! (my dogs name is chuchu and hes a gray and white shih tzu)" while he played with the syberian huskies and boxer puppies, i sat there the whole time we were in the store (roughly 30 min or so) playing with this one dog. if i didnt firmly believe in adoption first, i would of SO bought this dog.....also i couldnt do that to my baby dog....if i got another dog, let alone another shih tzu, i think chuchu's heart would break. he already is "mad" at me beacuse i came home smelling like dog lol. he knew i cheated on him.

    so the point of my little babbling story was to say i was THIS close to buying another shih tzu....or my bf asked how much he was and he knew i wanted it. but alas, i walked out with nothing and came home to my one true love bug <333

    and in unrealistic views, i want a pet penguin hehe

    I've always loved tigers, I used to have an imaginary tiger when I was really young.

    Hobbes was real, not imaginary. The tuna fish sandwich which originally snared him on the other hand...

    nasty??? have u ever held a chinchilla? IMO, they are very awsome...
     

  19. racoons are NOT awesome! at my moms, i stayed in her attic for a while because quite frankly i HATE staying by myself (i have paranoia attacks because of my job its bad). well while i stayed there for a few nights, she had a raccoon up in the attic in the eves (the space between the roof and the room). this mother f*cker tore up all the insulation and would walk all hours of the night! the thing made me scared to death. i wanted to shoot it but A) silencers are illegal in NY so a standard 9MM would be a bit too loud and deff hard to "muffle" B) there was NO way in hell id clean up dead animal carcus! i wont even do it for humans! C) my mom would KILL me

    so anyways, this friggen thing was pissing me off so i got my high powered flashlight (this is a tiger light, it has mace on the opposite end and can momenterally blind someone when staring into it. its extremely bright!), and went to open up the eve and throw the light in. well, i opend the eve alright and there this thing was....bigger than my damn shih tzu staring at me with that look of "wtf are you doing in MY house?" kinda look. i screamed bloody murder and slammed the eve door shut. about 2 hours later my mom was finally on the phone with an exterminator who put out traps and caught the bastards.

    we then put a radio in to drive them out.


    let me tell you, you do NOT want rocky racoon living in YOUR house!!!!!! :mad5: :mad5: :mad5: :mad5: :mad5: :mad5: :mad5: :mad5:

    If I could choose any animal I would probably say a Wolf....Depending on what they eat it could take care of the coyote problem.. However it would probably end up eating various animals around the area.. So that could be a problem..
