Does everyone here have an animal? If you don't is it because you don't like them in your house?

My sister couldn't deal with the hair so I took her dog in : )

  • I have a Boxer and he is part of the family and of course lives indoors.
    To each his/her own though... If people choose not to have a pet that is fine with me. It is the people who get one and then after the fact decide they can't deal with it and get rid of it that I have issues with. :( Thank you for giving your sister's dog a home.

  • That is why we don't have a dog or a cat. I would love to have a pet but dh says they are too messy and they get hair every where. So I am just biding my time. I figure the kids will get older and eventually beg for one and hopefully he will give in.

  • I had two old cats. One I had put to sleep and the other went to a no kill shelter and was adopted right away (Maine coon, declawed, nice disposition). Both attacked my kids to the point that I couldn't ignore it. I miss a pet. I have a lame fish.

  • I would love to have a kitty or a small dog, but I wouldn't be able to handle the hair. I already have two kids and a manchild to take care of. lol

  • We don't currently have any pets... we had a dog and two cats before we moved to a different state (and to an apartment that has a no-pets policy.) We found them great homes before we left, but I still miss them even four years later. My husband loves animals but does hate hair all over everything, so if we never got another animal, he'd be okay with it. However, as soon as we are able to move to a bigger place that allows us to have pets (or buy a house) we will get a dog and probably end up with a couple dogs and cats, as well as hamsters or gerbils or something. With four kids it's hard to tell what we'll end up with! My dogs and cats always have been and always will be indoor/outdoor animals. The only problem I have with animals is the dog smell, I never get used to that and HATE my house smelling like dog... wet or otherwise. LOL

  • Osstie, there are some breeds of dog that don't shed at all, and many that shed very little. Some breeds of cat are more sheddy than others too... so if you really would like a pet and the hair is the only barrier, you might be able to find a breed that works really well for you with some looking!
