    Just wanted to post some pictures of my pets. Only ones I don't have pictures of right now are my cat that lives back home with my mom, and the girl ferret. I've never been good at taking action pictures, so I'll have to get my fiance to get a picture of Ginger (the girl ferret) sometime, since she's almost always either moving around or sleeping.

    We bought Dexter from the petshop as a baby, he's about 8 months old now. A friend of our's found Chester running around outside, and we decided to take him in. Not really sure quite how old he is, but he's defintley older than the others. Hopefully not too old though, because I want him to be around for quite a while longer. And then both of the leopard geckos we bought from the petshop as well, that was about a year ago.. so they're probably a few months older than a year now.

    Feel free to post pictures of your pets too!

    Ferrets... Chester (white/in the box) & Dexter (black/outside the box)

    I used to keep ferrets! They are such comics, gotta love them!


    Except when they've stolen something important and you have no time to search every hiding place....

    My daughter(33) got a ferret for her 18th birthday from her then fiancee now husband. She and her dad and I built a cage for the ferret-Missy. Missy died a few years ago and I miss her more than anyone else does. I used to get her out and play with her alot when we stayed with them. Sara bought a leash for her and took her outside but the leash had to be altered Missy was really good at getting out of the leash!

    Your geckos are really cute!

    My brother had a zoo in his apartment last year. A ferret, a tarantula (ew), a lizard or sorts, three cats, a dog, and two birds. I think that's it....but I'm not sure. Small apartment, by the way, these kids were nuts.
    I have two cats and bird, I'm pretty sure I've posted pics of them before but here goes.


    Leia, I got as a highschool graduation gift, she's 10 years old.

    Orion, I rescued last year, she was abandoned and neglected. Starving for affection and for food, she was tiny tiny tiny, about 4 lbs when I got her. She's the most affectionate interactive cat I've ever seen, and we love her to bits. She talks to us, siamese are usually very vocal!

    I love ferrets. In the early 1980's we had two. They are so funny.Their names were Cheech and Chonge. :lol: :lol: They loved paper bags or anything they could get into and out of quick. But Paper Bags were their favorite toy. You have a happy looking bunch of pets. Wonderful.

    The geckos are very interesting, pretty color. Never been sure of something like that (to own) do they bite?

    Melanie, your kitties are beautiful. Of course I'm a cat lover with 6 of my own. Why is it they alway love to be on our beds and computer chairs?

    Aww, I'm sorry about Missy. That is so true about them gettting out of their leash though. We have 2 harnesses and leashes, we use them sometimes but don't really trust them.. they've gotten out before. Worst time was when we took them outside to play in the snow (they loved it btw) and Dexter got out and darted under a car, I literally had to dive on the ground to catch him. I thought he was a goner. The other ferret that we have (the one not pictured) is way too small to even think about putting in the harness. If the other guys can get out, she'll defintley get out. I love taking them outside though, just have to keep a REALLY close eye on them. Sometimes we'll move their smaller cage outside, even spray them with water sometimes... we don't have AC and it get's really hot. They love it!

    I've had 2 cats that look a lot like Leia. The first one was named Misty, my parents got him before I was born, and he lived to be 17 I think. Then a few years after he died, my mom and I went to the humane society and saw a kitten that looked just like him and had to get her, named her Mystic, she still lives at home with my mom. I miss her so much, I'll get to see her tomorrow though when I go home. :D

    No, they don't bite at all. Some types of lizards/geckos do... but I've never heard of leopard geckos biting. And even if these guys did, it probably wouldn't hurt... they're not much bigger than anoles. I've attached a picture to better show the size of the geckos.
