I love looking at all these pet posts & I love animals… from afar. It seems like I’m a minority in the hive! You guys loooove your pets 🙂
I have zero interest in actually having a pet of my own. I love their personalities & how cuddly and cute they are– but I don’t really feel like having one in my house. I hate animal hair, the dander makes my eyes red & they’re a lot of work! haha I do want children & I know they’re 10 times the work, but I’m not there yet…
If you don’t have a pet at home- do you want one or are you satisfied with oohing & ahhing over other peoples animals?

I kind of feel this way about dogs. I love dogs, love playing with them, but have only actually had a dog once in my life. I think I will probably get one someday, when we have a farm with lots of land for him/her to run around on, but right now I am perfectly content with my slobber-free kitties. 🙂

I dont have one…our landlord wont let us.
As soon as we get out of this place, we are getting a doggie I hope!
I do have a childhood pet that is still alive and with my parents in Florida though. He’s a cutie..but he’s old…15 years old!

We don’t have one as we are renters and aren’t allowed…but I think we would get a dog if we could!

- Wedding: July 2010 - Anela Garden Chapel & Japanese Cultural Center, Honolulu
Since my two pet rats died over the summer, I’m now pet-less. I totally feel the void, and I fawn over other people’s pets like there’s no tomorrow.
But we’re going to wait until after the wedding is over to get a new family member..FI has his heart set on a lolcat.

I could go without a dog in the house, too, like lilyfaith. I really would be perfectly content to have ONLY cats.
I was petless for the 4 years I was in college and I felt like my life was a little empty.

I have no pet, but it is because I have no job, and also because I’d like to be a bit more settled before having a pet. Done with traveling and all of that. BF does not want a pet, but I am certain if I had one, he would love it.
I don’t mean that in the “well I’m getting one and he’ll have to deal” (ok, maybe just a bit, but he knows) sort of way, but more in the “He says he doesn’t, but I know him better than that”
He used to have a Westie, and it was nearly as old as he was. They eventually had to have it put down. 🙁
So his mom would ask him “do you miss the dog?” and mr. i-dont-like-animals would harden his face and say no. BUT then when there is a Westie somewhere, like on the TV, his face would light up and he will say “oh look it’s a (dog’s name)-doggie!”
Right, you don’t miss the dog, and you certainly don’t talk to the cat at my mom’s, no, not at all.

FI is a cat person, while I love both dogs and cats. We rent and our landlord allows no pets right now, so that is a bit of a drag. I think when we move we will definitely get a kitten. Even though I want a dog so badly, I know 1) working 12 hour shifts is not conducive with walking your dog a couple of times a day and 2) we will probably not be able to afford a house. Feel free to check the housing prices in Vancouver, British Columbia. It’s insane. IF we are lucky, we might be able to get a townhouse in the ‘burbs. *sigh*

We don’t have pets anymore and we aren’t sure if we want anymore, at least not anytime soon.

We don’t have any pets at our home right now, but wish we could. The only reason we don’t is that we rent and they aren’t allowed! But they are a big hassle too! It makes things easier not having them (trips, etc). And plus you don’t have to go through the horrid potty training!

Well its nice to know that I’m not the only one who doesn’t want a pet!
So this might be a dumb question: but is it a common policy that rental properties can’t have pets?

Very common. The few places that let you make you pay an extra deposit, sometimes more each month, and they usually limit the size, and sometimes breed.

ME! We love to go to Petsmart and look at the cats, and we’ll even occasionally head out to humane society. That being said, we treat it like a zoo even though A really really REALLY wants a cat. I’m super allergic, though, so unless I start taking meds its a no go. I thought I wanted a dog til I dogsat my friends German Shepard.

FI and I don’t have pets either because our apartment won’t allow. I’m hoping to get a dog and a cat in the future.
