Cats, I just LOVE them. They are all so different, sassy and rule wherever they are. They all have so much personality, I've never met a cat I didn't like. Ever!

passion is when you put more energy into something than is required to do it. it is more than just enthusiasm or excitement, passion is ambition that is materialized into action to put as much heart, mind, body and soul into something as is possible. // <3 starlite - dream - lady - georgia

Jellyfish, bats, and cats are my top three...also elephants and nautilusssessess.

Basically because they're, you know, awesome. I've loved these animals since I was a wee lass, always will.

A house ain't a home without a cat.

Rats. I've had 'em off and on through my life. I don't have any now -- they take a lot of time if cared for properly (not just thrown into a small wire cage and neglected).

That Loris sure is cute!!! Not a good pet, though.

I'd like to have some chickens but can't get past the hatchery problem of disposal of the males -- why I try to be vegan (I've been vegetarian since 1986).

I agree about the Loris- don't take things like this and try to make them pets, whehter or not they were born in captivity- it takes 20,000 years to domesticate an animal.... or it should.

As for the hy-line hatchery, that is the most awful video I have ever seen- and I am a registered nurse- I see tons of awful things all day long. It shows graphic details so be careful if you watch it.

Dogs...besides horses they are the best friends a person can have and SO loyal and loving.
"A dog is the only creature that loves a person more than themselves." Dogs are the animal that will lie down next to there dying owner and die with them. They are amazing. :)

I absolutely love dogs. I was very fortunate to grow up with dogs. They are absolutely phenomenal animals. They will play, cuddle they know what you're thinking, asking. They are such interactive animals, I love them.

A new interesting animal I have been reading into is tropical fish. They have phenomenal colors and all have such interesting shapes and personalities. The way they function is absolutely phenomenal. I find them really neat.

Besides horses, my number one favorite animals are the bigger tropical fish. I love their personalities and how there are so many pretty simple DIY projects you can do that entertain them no end.

I'm also a dog and cat fan. I just prefer a very specific kind of personality in them, I definitely don't love/appreciate them all. Haha

I also really like small animals. I had guinea pigs for a number of years and I'd love to have them again but they involve a ton of space and work/time, both things I don't have right now.

I guess I basically enjoy most animals but those are my main favorites!

Oh! I also really like cows. Hahahaha
