    ooooh, thank you - it's free!

    Dear Laverne,

    You have now lost your "going out when I take the trash out" privileges. Running to the other end of the building and expecting me to chase you, then running the opposite way to the other end of the building is not amusing.

    Signed,
    The person who will be locking you in the bathroom during trash removal from now on.

    Dear Rory,

    Welcome to our family. You're adjusting perfectly and I can't believe you're already friends with Sasha, our dog!

    Yes, they really are a good pair. I am amazed that they are so compatible in such a short time- but then the dog was trained by the two previous cats....

    Awww, such a sweet photo!

    Since I can't have a cat, I have considered getting something like a hamster but somehow that doesn't sound like a good replacement...It isn't like they can roam the apartment, interact with me, nor curl up on my lap and purr. I am sure they probably do interact but not in the same way a cat does.

    No, I know. I think it's sweet too. She REALLY loves her Mommy. It's just funny that I am RIGHT there, petting her, but since I'm not looking at her it means I'm ignoring her.

    Rats make really great pets The shelters are usually loaded with them.They are like tiny little dogs and they have unique personalities and love to play. My 4 boys wrestle with my fingers and just hang on the side of the cage when they hear me come home from work......waiting for a treat. The only downside is that they only live 2-4 years. It's hard when they go cause I do get attached to the little fuzz butts but there are always more in need of rescue!

    I think a rat's a better pet than a rabbit... and 100 times better than a hamster.

    Gerbils are great pets. They do best with some gerbil company, are fun as heck to watch (especially after their cage/habitat has been cleaned), will respond if you play with them/hand train them, and are easy to care for. And they are really cute. My son had gerbils when he was small; they were a lot of fun.

    And if you get a bunch of cages/habitats, reconfiguring the gerbil abode becomes an interesting engineering project! We had nine cages in all, and would have has many as eight at a time making up the gerbil complex. (We always kept at least one cage separate in case of illness/need to transport/stashing for the complex cleaning spree.) Lots of tubes and levels and places for the gerbils to be.

    I have a friend who used to have rats as pets and liked them a lot. (Now she has cats, so ... no rats.) But gerbils... are definitely cuter!

    I'll admit gerbils are cute but rats have more personality. They also need to have friends of the same sex to keep them company or they become depressed.

    I want a pet rat! I don't think the management would approve, and I think it would freak out my boyfriend, though.

    Azfiddle, Rory looks like DBF's cat, only Pooh has more white on his face. Congrats on the new kitty!
    At least I don't leave slime trails.
