How old were you when you got your first pet?

What kind of pet was it? Did you take care of it all by yourself? Did it live long?

  • My first pet was a dog, a beagle, at age 11. My mom helped take care of him, and he lived until he was 9. He died of kidney failure =(

  • 18months. My mom and I went to the pound and picked out a dog, because my mom wanted a dog to protect me -- she says I was so cute she was terrified someone would break in and try to kidnap me lol

  • The first pet that was really "ours" was a hamster, when I was about 7. We always rented, so it wasn't until 6th grade, when my parents finally bought their own home, that I was allowed a real pet - and I got a cat that year. We still have her, but she "belongs" to my sister now because I couldn't bring her to college with me, and by the time we were in a place that let us have pets my sister wouldn't part with her! (we got a dog, though!)
