Default Introduce your OTHER pets!

We have threads that introduce all of our dogs, but what about the non-canine members of our households?

There are some pretty neat critters here on Chaz, from snakes to sugar gliders, and I want to see them all

Name: Nya
Type of critter: Domestic Longhair Cat
Age: ~14 (ish)
A bit of a bio: I found Nya in my second year of University, starving and flea ridden on the streets. She HAD to have been someone's pet as she's the most docile and easy going cat I've ever met. Nothing phases her, and if you do something she doesn't like, the most you'll get is a "mew" in complaint, with maybe a batted paw (she doesn't even use her claws). She's also one of the most affectionate cats I've ever met. She is happiest when curled up on someone snuggling.

Name: Buddy
Type of critter: Domestic Shorthair Cat
Age: 4 1/2 (born September 2004)
A bit of a bio: Buddy was brought to our door by two little girls one day when it was POURING rain, saying they found him outside of our house. Tiny little soaking wet 4 week old kitten. We weren't really in the position to have a second cat, but as you can see he stuck around He's a bit timid of new things, but is a big love bug with those people he knows. He is a purr machine, you can often hear it from across the room.
He's a bit of a messed up kitty, he's got no neck, a 90 degree angle of his spine when he sits, bad hips, and his right ear is crooked from multiple hematoma surgeries, but we love him to bits!

Name: Neko
Type of critter: Blue Point Siamese
Age: 4
A bit of a bio: Neko is my first cat and he's my heart cat. He communicates with me in very subtle ways that most people don't notice. They think he is aloof because he asks for attention without throwing himself all over you. He LOVES to play tag and his other favorite game is simply a rough housing game where I push him and playfully slap him around and he goes after my toes and bear hugs my legs with a bite. First cat I've ever met that you can do that with and not just make him angry. He was given to us for free by a BYB who could not sell him. he is very close to me and went into a bit of a depression when we got Willie and it took him nearly two years to be normal again, the only thing he did not regain was his previously talkative nature. He's begun to do this new thing where he curls up with guests, it's really odd for him since he never likes strangers.




Name: Willie
Type of critter: Blue Point Siamese
Age: 2
A bit of a bio: Willie is very dog like. When I come home he begs for attention and rubs all over me. He will jump from the floor into your arms when you want (and sometimes when you don't want him to but he's gotten better). He's very talkative when he wants attention (which is often). He greets guests but is not all over them like he is with his family. Everyone loves him because of how outgoing he is. We bought him from the BYB we got Neko from before I knew about BYBs.




Name: Titan
Type of critter: PP Hermit Crab
Age: Unknown, I got him last July I think.
A bit of a bio: Titan is my favorite hermit crab ever. I didn't think you could really bond to a hermit crab but I've bonded to him as much as one can. I got him on vacation after not owning crabs for 3-4 years because they always died. but I found a forum and learned what I was doing wrong (EVERYTHING) and though I have lost a few to PPS (Post purchase stress) I have not lost any after they've been here a month. He is very active and LOVES food, all food. The first thing he did when I held him was pinch me, that's why I fell in love Whenever you lift him up by his shell he comes out and flails about, not shy at all.




Name: Aphrodite
Type of critter: E Hermit crab
Age: Unknown, I only got her a few months ago
A bit of a bio: She is pretty shy but is active, she just sucks herself in when I move near the tank. She is my first ever E (Ecuadorian). She is starting to warm up to the place and crawl around upside down on the lid. She likes to make odd noises, the sound of an angry squirrel.




I have another crab but she is almost constantly under ground so I don't know anything about her and have no pictures. Her name is Ophelia.


Name: Tammy
Type of critter: Leopard Gecko
Age: 4
A bit of a bio: I got her after I stopped keeping hermits the first time. She is very cat like, especially when hunting crickets. She loves her moist hide and food. She's not very active but I think there is something wrong with the habitat, maybe heating or something, I'll have to look into it. She like to climb on me when I hold her, she goes right up the front of my shirt no problem.
FYI: in case any leo owners see this I just want to say she is not on sand anymore, she has tile, this is a very old picture.

Haha Baileys is the one EVERYONE is always impressed with. She sure is beautiful. I just wish she were more tame. No one can get near her except me.

Name: Iggy
Type: Bearded Dragon
Age: ~7 years
Bio: I had always had a interest in them but had never seen one in person. A girl I worked with had one and after being around her I knew I had to have one. Well, about the same time I met my husband and had made comments about wanting one. We went to the pet store to look at them and ended up bringing her home. She gave me the saddest eyes I had ever seen - I just couldn't leave her. I'm glad I got her because I really feel like I saved her life. She was very ill for about the first year we had her and I know if I hadn't have taken her they would have just let her die. Anyways, she was the first 'child' the husband and I got and she is the sweetest girl in the world. She has changed the view of many people who are fearful of reptiles. She is extremely easy going and it's not uncommon to find her peeking her head out of my purse.

This is the last picture I took before losing our male. I think it's love.
