Enough about goats here,Unless that's your answer to my question here! I'm just curious to see who has had an odd pet or even an exotic one! Or maybe your "normal" pet is just plain odd! So tell me someting about your pets,past present or future!

I've had my share of odd one's,There's been an Owl and a Fox in there as well! I've had some normal one's that were more than just odd in the head! My cat Henri is perhaps the oddest cat alive!
~thanx for takin' the time here~

I'll be replin' to all the comments I'm behind on tonight! Sorry!

Over the years I've had several pets (hamsters, dogs, cats, fish, turtles), but the weirdest one was a pet mouse! Yes, I had a pet mouse!

I was in college. There was a guy that I was really interested in who sat right in front of me in a few of my classes. Well, he had a whole bunch of pet mice and he was telling me about how one had just had babies. hmmmm...lightbulb! I thought, hey, I could get one of those mice and really get him interested in me. Ho hum, it didn't happen that way, and I ended up with a mouse and no man.

The mouse was very cool though. I kept him for a long time in my dorm room...my roommate wasn't too happy with me about that! lol.. And then when I went home for the summer, he sat in his tank on top of my dresser. I don't remember how long he actually lived, but do remember the day that I found him dead. Very sad day indeed. I was highly upset and shed a single tear as he was flushed down the toilet.

Now, living in the country, I have mice everywhere, but usually they end up in traps rather than a tank on top of my dresser! lol

Right now, I've got the "dog by proxy" and then I have my very own
2 1/2 cats. (1/2 cat because she is 22 years old)

I've always only had cats, dogs and fish.
The most interesting would have to be the salt water aquarium we had
when I was a kid. It was like an amusement park to watch.
There were sea anemonies, live coral, shrimp, a seahorse and a couple small fish that were brightly colored. The sea anemonies were fascinating to watch. Especially when they would catch a brine shrimp and eat it.
It was a lot of fun to watch but I think back on the work it took to
keep it up. The water had to be tested twice a day to make sure the salt levels were accurate. We had to purchase this special plankton stuff to put in the tank for the fish, seahorse, and shrimp.

Thanks for bringing up this subject. This really took me down memory lane today.

Cats, dogs, 1 hamster (eaten by cat), one snake (given away), 2 small turtles (died old age), lots of fishes (died no known cause). Nothing odd about them because as we all know cats is cats.

The oddest pet a bloke ever had
Ive had some weird ones if ya count some of the sheilas Ive been out with.

When I was a kid we lived in a string of little bush towns outback. The oddest pet I ever had was a bull calf. I got him the day he was born by sneakin in between the legs of a mob of cattle in a railway stock yard. They were waitin to be shipped out in a train. The calves born durin the night were usually knocked on the head and the head and the train drovers used to eat em on the train journey.

So theres me at 12 yrs old, squeezin in through the rails to steal this newborn calf just before sunup one mornin. I got him out and carried him a quarter of a mile through the scrub to the old house we lived in on the edge of town. A bloke down the gully from our place had a herd of goats and he used to give me a bucket of goats milk every mornin to feed to the calf.

Over three years that bloody calf grew up to be the biggest meanest bull ya ever seen. He loved me. I used to ride him all over town with a rope halter and when he got ornery I used to dangle a slice of bread an peanut butter in front of him on a stick, like danglin bait off a fishin rod. He'd follow that piece of bread just in front of his nose and he'd go anywhere it went.

He had a bad habit of breakin out of the back yard and going into the town, If he found a house with clothes hangin on the clothes line he'd go through the fence and start eatin the clothes danglin on the line. He had a big weakness for bed sheets, the cleaner the better, and he always started eatin em from the centre. He used to sorta suck em down his throatand to get him to stop ya had to pull on the bloody sheet and a few feet of bed sheet used to come out of him all covered in green slime.

Hangin on the clothes line like that with a huge patch of green slime in the middle used to look like the Jolly Green Giant lived there and had a wet dream.

I took him to a bloody pet show once when the school held a competition for all the kids to see who had the nicest pet. He made a bot of a stir. And he shat all over the school assembly area where they were all showin their puppies and kittens. He was a bastard like that, and we didnt win a bloody prize.

When we moved from that town to another little country town my dad said he gave him to a farmer to be top bull, but I wasnt sure. As a kid, I reckoned he was too smart to go to the butchers, so I reckon he escaped and hid out in the gullies near town, goin in at night to steal the bedsheets to survive. The KK woulda hated him I reckon.

Hi Spunky,

I once had a cat who would back into a chair and sit like a human and watch TV. He never lied down on his belly. He slept on his back and he loved joining me in the tub for a bath.

I had a female cat when I adopted her who was 13 yrs. old and every night he would open up all the kitchen cupboard doors. If I would open it for her she would close it all and open them again. This was her ritual. It was so odd and funny hearing the cupboards slam.

Hello Flo! Now that's a Kool cat!yea a little odd but ya got to really love those special ones!

Well, I had this goat once... called him "Bill" 'cuz he kept gettin' his feelings hurt when I called him by his given name "Billy the Kid"...

Sorry! Couldn't resist!

Seriously... dogs, mostly. My first one was a beagle, named Mabel after the lead fem character in Pirates of Penzance. Then some years later, I had a golden retriever named Otto, after Otto Preminger.

I have had millions of cats and dogs. Rabbits, goat, turtle, birds, hamsters, and a guinea pig. ( probably more but I can't remember all of them...OH...and gold fish!
My son ( who does not live with me, thank goodness, is a reptile man. He has 2 big snakes, a bearded dragon native of Australia, two big hairy tarantula's, a gecko, a Savannah Monitor that will grow long and huge, and some kind of other weird ugly big lizard! He also has this big ugly black King Scorpion. Why? I do not have a clue!
He also has had tree frogs and a variety of other things. I won't go into his house if he has the snakes out!! Too weird for me!!
( but I sure loved my big pet goat!
