Ha. That made me smile. :)

I think Ray Bradbury once had a dog named Dog. (At least, I read a bunch of his short stories in an anthology once, and more than one of them mentioned a dog named Dog, so either that part was based on his own experience, or he just liked the idea enough to use it in multiple stories.)

Cute animals, anyway. :)

I have a channel on youtube with a few videos of some of my critters. :)

Sugar gliders, ferrets, cats, dogs, and lizards in our house. Used to be a lot more, but I'm getting tired of all the work, lol.


Wow that sugar glider makes a weird noise. 8O

RIP White Kitty. You are missed. :-(


Aww, sweet cats. And beautiful lizard too. Too bad about White Kitty. It's always hard to lose a pet. :(

I like the name, though. Is there a story behind it? Or did you just think it would be pleasantly weird to choose that name even though the kitty wasn't white? :)

I'm liking a lot of the names in this thread, actually. I like unusual names. And other unusual details about having a pet. (We don't know our parrot's birthday, so we decided to celebrate it on the first Monday of December. For no reason. Just because I've never heard of anyone's birthday always being the first Monday of December.)

White Kitty was pure white when he was born. He was my husband's cat, so he named him. lol

BTW, the lizard's name is Tommy. We let our 4 year old name him.

note to EARTHTOERIKA......thank you for taking in rainman. not too long ago i was part of an animal sanctuary that took in the most damaged of the damaged. we fondly called ourselves the 'home for the hopeless'. we knew dogs, cats and rabbits but were not up on birds or lizards. we could have used you!

one of our macaws,maxie, had been 'owned' for about 10 years by an elderly lady who kept her for her grandkids to play with. those little bastards would throw things at her and taught her to say terrible things. she was locked in a conure size cage and never let out. finally the old b***h died and her daughter called us to take maxie. we could not say no and she came to our place. she would hurt you at any chance.

we constructed a 120 cubic foot enclosure for her, her first chance to spread her wings in more than 10 years. she had picked every feather she could get to, something we could never get her to stop. her veterinarian devised a correct diet for her. we did everything we could for her. she eventually would accept myself and the lady who owned the property and stopped with the cursing. she would call out to us by saying 'mother' and one day crawled on the directors shoulder and walked around with her. tears were flowing. all the hard work we had put in to help maxie was paying off in several ways.

i hope you and rain man have many good years together.
