What would you pick? - January 11th 2017, 01:44 AM

If you could have ANY animal as a pet, what would you pick and why?!

I would pick a bear! I love bears so much! My dream is to hug one!

Re: What would you pick? - January 11th 2017, 02:44 AM

I love cats and I'd want many if I could care for them but if I had to choose a different animal I would be tied between a horse, a goat, and a chicken. I've always found horses to be peaceful and therapeutic and I would want to learn to ride on my own. Goats are so wild and hilarious and fun. And chickens make a good companion and they love doing brain games and exercises, it's so cute! I think...I am a vegetarian anyway so not like I'd eat any of them.

Okay...sloths are cute, raccoons are adorbs and...snow leopards are wonderful especially because they're endangered so I'd be happy to keep them safe but in terms of pets, I am tied between the three I am tied with.

I'd really like a dog or a cat!

But if I had to choose a different animal it'd be a tiger. Tiger cubs are so adorbs. Look!

Oh I was going to say tiger but Kav beat me to it.


You know these are endangered?

I'm still going to say tiger but I would also want just all the cats because who doesn't love cats?

I would love a Dolphin, penquin and unicorn because I have always wanted a dolphin I used to say I would keep it in my bath tub when I was little. Penguin because they are so cute, and unicorn because come on it's magical.

A dog would be my first choice. And assuming standard animals are not allowed, I'd say a wolf.

I'd go for a dog since I don't have one, but since this is any animal....either a wolf or an arctic fox....I just love them

Re: What would you pick? - January 11th 2017, 09:07 PM

Oh my god foxes, wolves and big cats (tigers and snow leopards included) bears are cute but only if thry are like carebears. Unicorms are fun. Owls are wicked. We are like in winnie the pooh forest. What about a tigger? (Different than a tiger ) but oh em gee I know I posted here already but TH should get a vacant land and we should all raise animals there. Would be so worth it. We can save endangered animals. Teen help: animal sanctuary edition but the question is how do we do that ethically because different animals need different habitats but maybe we can do a wild cats sanctuary.(and expenses too, yeah I know I know. Rob stop giving me that look) But a person can dream, right?

I would love some horses. I always joke around with my parents and tell them that if we ever win the lottery I'd like to get some horses and a property surrounded by trees.

Other than that I would like some chicks, and a koala though I will probably think of other things later.

Mine is... When I was a kid I asked my parents for a pet monkey. I was convinced monkeys can be pets.

Monkeys!

Do you see it clearer

Some people think I can solve them

I'm only human
I make mistakes

Probably a female platypus, but failing that I'd love a few more cats.

I would probably go a fennec fox or a wolf. I will probably think of more options later but those are the ones that came to mind first.

Yeah Koalas would definitely only be suited in Australia as that is the only place really that has eucalyptus trees. Meaning you can't have it as a pet, but I can. Not that I want to actually, they carry a lot of diseases and when they mate its quite a horrendous noise. Plus ones that aren't used to people are very good at attacking even if they do seem really cuddly.

I want a bengal. A munchkin cat would be cool as well though. A red panda, a fox would be cool but a Japanese Shiba Inu will work instead, husky, flying squirrel, and maybe a tiger.

I know some of those things because I've held koalas at wildlife parks before and they decided to give us some 'interesting' facts about them. Plus we used to get a lot of them at my primary school so you pick up some things.
