What is your favorite animal?  I love Goats the most, followed by squirrels.  What about you all?  If your selection is not listed, please just write it in.

That is possibly the most disturbing cow I have ever seen. :)

I would have to say sheep and chickens.  At least I would hope so, as I hope to have some one day.

...lions, tigers, & bears, oh my!
Out of the list, dogs I suppose, someday when I have a big yard, a big house, & a really tall fence, I'd like to have an Alaskan Malamut.  Australian dingos are pretty cute too, but as they're on the same level as cayotes, I don't think they're safe around small children.  
If I could have any animal in the world as a pet though, I think I'd have a wallaby.
Now where were we? Oh yeah - the important thing was I had an onion on my belt, which was the style at the time. They didn’t have white onions because of the war. The only thing you could get was those big yellow ones...

I started out with one gelded short-haired male black cat named "Boo."  I have a bad habit of adopting cats that those in my neighborhood have abandoned when moving or simply thrown out due to ignorance (Old Wive's Tales concerning pregnancy, for example).  So I'm now up to five cats.  Including Boo, they are in order of joining the family: "Flash," a large, but gentle "fixed" long-haired male black cat; "Butch," a fixed female short-haired black cat (it took quite a while before I realized Butch was a female); "Cinnamon," a one-year-old handsome unfixed male Siamese mix, and "Jay-Jay," an unfixed short-haired male at the end of his kittenhood, white with black spots.  If anyone can provide a cat, all toilet-trained, with a good home, let me know---I'll never let Boo go, and I've grown too fond of Flash and Butch, and I've spent too many $'s on Cinnamon at the animal hospital already, so that leaves only the latest addition, the very playful and gentle Jay-Jay available for adoption.

Btw, we're allowed only 1 (one) cat and no dogs in my apartment complex, so I'm really in trouble if I'm found out!

I like most animals except rats.

A few days ago I paid a visit to our county fair. My county is rural and agricultural, so the livestock exhibits are a prominent feature of the fair.

Most of the animals were pretty stupid and understandably frightened by all of the strange human visitors. There were a couple of sheep, however, who walked right up to me and pressed their heads against my outstretched hand. I stroked them on the head and cheek. They closed their eyes with pleasure and exhibited signs of what appeared to me to be genuine affection. "No wonder God used sheep as symbols to represent His children," I thought to myself.

Of course, I love to eat mutton, which sort of makes me feel a little guilty!  ;)

Cats rule, dogs drool!

We have six cats: Peaches, Pop Tart, Yoda, Lardo, Mouse and Eudora.

And one dog, Zoe.

At the moment I only have one cat, Sabrina.  If I wasn't too lazy to go downstairs to my car and get my digital camera, I'd post a photo.  Perhaps tomorrow. :)

I'm not sure if the subject is animals for pets or animals for eating, so I'll try to knock both out in one fell swoop.

I live in the country on the Mexican border amid the palm trees and the sunsets. Around here there is a type of dove that is singularly beautiful, and when one flies away, its movements are so peaceful that I can't help but be reminded of the Holy Ghost.

Nevertheless, I've heard that they're good eatin', so me and my paw are buyin' bb guns! ;)
