  • Snakes or spiders. I would not be able to get any sleep if they had one of these in the house!

  • Cats. I have developed an allergy to them. I also don't like that they walk around in their own waste in a litter box and then walk on counters spreading those germs.

    No snakes, spiders, frogs, turtles . . . oh heck, I guess after our dog is no longer with us the kids will have to settle on a fish.

  • Have to agree with the others, no snakes or spiders!
    I also have one a little different, no cats. That is because I had cat scratch fever when i was young, so one kitty scratch landed me in the hospital for two weeks!

  • Like everyone else - no snakes or spiders.

    But to add to that - no hamsters. I have two horrible childhood experiences with hamsters, and now I hate them with a passion! First: In the first grade, the class hamster ran up my pants leg. I jumped up and down trying to get him out, was bitten, and then was FUSSED AT because I could've hurt him while jumping.
    Second: Was holding my hamster in one hand, my sisters in the other, and they lunged at each other. My thumb got in the middle of the fight, and the hamster refused to leg go. My mom ended up having to squeeze it's head to get it off of me. I have a very visible scar on my thumb to this day.

  • I'm an animal lover, but reptiles just creep me out. We have horses, rabbits, cats, dogs, have had hamsters and guinea pigs.
