    How many pets in your lifetime?

    I was thinking about my pets at the Rainbow Bridge and how I miss them. It made me wonder how many pets all of us have had in our lifetime, so I thought I would ask. We aren't talking age (yours) just how many pets.

    I have adored and spoiled in my lifetime:

    DUTCHESS: Black Miniature poodle - Female
    SUGAR: White Long Haired Cat - Male
    PATCHES: Calico Girl
    MAGIC: Black Long Haired Cat - Male


    RASCAL: Orange Tabby - Male

    Ok, we had few pets while I was growing...
    English springer spaniel
    1 grey tabby (I don't remember so much of these two, I was young (about 3) when they died, but I remember I loved both of them a lot, even slept on the floor with the dog when she was ill...
    Then we have had few mixed breed dogs, and my first own pet, dog, mix breed, Nappe who lived only to be 5 years due to an illness.
    For few years I didn't have any pets....

    Now with my husband we have two very adorable cats, whom we love very much, and woulnd't change them for anything!

    I've had cats most of my life. We found our first one when I was about 5 years old.

    Miciona - she lived to about 12 years of age. She died of cancer
    Titti - she went to the RB due to old age. She was 18
    Gigio - He went to the bridge last September, he was 19.

    Currently I have the pleasure to share my life with Maya (5 years), Prema (4 years old) and Foxy, the baby of the family (almost 10 months old).

    Apparently I had some birds and goldfish when I was very young but unfortunately I can't remember them
