My name is Dave, and just wanted to say hi. I am 37 years old, and have had animals, of various types, all my life. I have a passion for reptiles, especially snakes, and am a very dedicated reptile keeper. I have a group of carpet pythons, green tree pythons, and boas. I have also always had cats, I have three currently, a large older Maine Coon girl, a back male, and a tonkinese male. I also like fish, especially loaches, and have a couple of large clowns.
I look forward to getting to know those here and chatting in the future.
I only have 1 cat that even cares anymore really, he likes to watch everything in the house. My maine coon just looks at me like, "again? what is with these leggless things?" They are more interested in the lizards. I let my golden tegu play with the cats sometimes, supervised of course. The poor cats don't know what to do with it
I also love cats too Karen! My big Maine coon is my baby Different pets fit in different ways. Fish are more of a "display" type animal, cats are more of a playful cuddly type animals, that love personal attention (well, most domestic cats anyways,) and different reptiles fall into different spaces in between. I just like animals I guess. Pretty much all of them. Life in general is fascinating to me.
I grew up with non-furred or feathered pets due to allergies, though most of them were my sisters. Nothing fancy. Some goldfish, those little painted turtles you used to buy at the dime store, the "chameleons" you could buy from vendors at parades, a garter snake, frogs, etc. I'm doing a series on Emergency Preparedness for Pet Owners, and when I get to how to evacuate reptiles, I'll probably ask for your input.
