Getting to Know You: Pets



In the human world, people often seek the companionship of animals, feeding and caring for them for no other reason than that the animal brightens their day.

If you're human, do you have a pet? If you're not human, does your species keep pets? What kind?

Let's talk about our pets. For those who don't have pets, what kind would you get if you could?

Anyone can answer, but characters preferred.

Ricky is my first-ever pet human and he's a big responsibility.

Ricky said...

Excuse me? I'm getting really tired of the abuse I have to put up with from you, Kalila. How about we just keep things professional for awhile?

While you two argue, I'll answer the question.

I have a pet rabbit. I adopted it after we did the bunny charity concert a few months ago. His name is Tornado.

No pets. I'd like to have a dog. It's just too crazy a time to get one. Someday when I have kids...

We do all kind of share Scruffy around here, I guess, and he's a good dog.

Ricky said...

I had a dog when I was a kid, Aidan. If I didn't live in an apartment and if I weren't gone so long, I'd have a golden retriever.

You're right, though, about Scruffy. It's cool we can come here and throw sticks for him.

Ricky said...

Hi, Scruffy! Go chase the tennis ball!

Ricky said...

Fluffy, I notice you don't come around very often. You remind me a little of my own cat, which tends to disappear for weeks at a time.

Kalila said...

That's because your cat isn't really your cat, Ricky.

I got to like my great aunt's gold fish when I was at Rosehill. They were pretty big and one would come to the surface and greet me whenever I came near.I used to talk to him. My parents had a cat called Calamity but she'd only be friendly for a minute, then wham, she'd scratch. Someday I'd like a dog. I always wanted one but Mum and Dad kept saying I could have a pup at the end of a year if i was good and got all As.
I mean, who can be perfect for a whole year? So I went for Brian and Goth instead. If I'd had a dog I probably wouldn't have done all that. I'll remember if I ever have kids.

Ruff, ruff!!!

Plop.

Wag, wag, wag, wag.

Hi

I had a turtle when I was a kid. It died.

I don't have a pet now. There's a cat next door that likes me.

We have a dog.

He's okay. I like him.

I don't blow him up.

I have a dog, cat and a parrot named Elvis. The parrot wants to take over and run the house but the cat seems to think she's in charge. The dog is a golden retriever and keeps switching sides cause she wants everyone to be happy. (I think she's a libra)
To show the parrot who's boss cat sometimes goes out and brings in dead birds. She drops them on the floor in front of Graceland. (That's what Elvis named his cage..er...I mean throne.)Sometimes the birds aren't quite dead (either the cat has some kindness in her heart or isn't as good a hunter as she thinks)
and then we have a wild time trying to shoo them out of the house. Cat enjoys this game very much as it freaks Elvis out. No matter how much of a king Elvis thinks himself to be somedays I think the cat is winning. But I'm only a lowly servant here so I can never be too sure.
Time to go refill the water dish...

When I was in Jamaica I was frienda with a Gecho. He was free to go anywhere but he liked my bedroom and he'd sit on the wall and puff up his big balloon of a chest. There were alley cats in New York. I found a kitten once but I couldn't let the guys see me pet it so I gave it to a girl kid in the next apartment.

Aidan said...

Good boy, Scruff. Go get the ball!

Kaelin said...

Maxwell intrigues me. Could be a useful person to know.

Aidan said...

Why Kae? Marc knows everything about explosions we've ever needed. Lucy too, for that matter.

Kaelin said...

Hey, there's always jobs we need to keep our distance from.

I think not everyone should have pets. You need to care about yourself before you can care about anything or anyone else. Me with a pet would be a disaster. I think they, kind of, end up being like their owner. That would be so unfair - to it.
