Title: How Many Animals Do You Have and What Kind?
Post by: soccermom on January 26, 2004, 03:50:34 AM
I am definitely an animal lover. I have a cat named Jake. He is 6 years old and very loveable. :) I also have 2 dogs. An Australian Shepherd  (Tri) named Max and a Lab/ chow mix (who is black as night and as sweet as pie. The Aussie knows when I am in pain and always tries to make me feel better by cuddling. The Lab/chow is very sensitive and sweet. They have both been great company. They make life more bearable and enjoyable.

Hope you like this subject. ;)

P.S. They both think they are lap dogs (40 lb and 50 lbs)!!!...Lol

I love Animals too, and from time to time  I have other's animals as guests, or I am a guest in there home. HOwever, I have a 2 Year old Yellow Labrador "Tehgan" It means beautiful in Welsh, and a 16 year old Percheron/Arab cross..HOrse, his name is Dreaming Outloud but mostly I just call him Firecat or Kitty since that is his stable name. ::)
Thanks fun to see what others have

I have two animals -- a dog (Westie) and a Leopard Gecko.  Actually, the gecko is my daughter's.  The Westie is great company while I'm home by myself.  The other day, my daughter took her to the groomer, and she was gone most of the day, and I really missed the company.

I have a yellow lab too!  His name is Beau (or General PGT Beauregard, if you want to be specific).  He's the size of a horse.  (Well, not quite, but close)  At 130 pounds (not fat) the vet says he's the biggest lab she's ever seen.  He's 7 or so (not sure as we got him from the Humane Society) and spends his whole life sleeping in front of the fireplace with his teddy bear.

I'm a total animal lover.  I've got 2 dogs, one's a long-haired German Shepherd called Sophie, she's 4 years old and sooooo cute and the other is a Shepherd-Collie cross named Sam, she's nearly 9 and the smartest dog I've ever come across.  Both of my dogs also think they're lap dogs and push each other out the way to get on my lap!  

Also 2 cats - one called Charlie who is a psycho, she attacks your ankles as you walk by her.  The other one is Woody, he's a big lovable softy.  

I used to also have a rabbit, hamsters, 8 guinea pigs, a couple of mice, tank of tropical fish and tank of goldfish all at the same time.  :o

Why is it only women talking about there pets why isnt there men with bad knees talking about this?

I used to have 2 dogs merlin- a black labradore
               and leo- a springer spaniel

unfortunatly leo passed away 3 mounths ago but it was his time to go

My dogs have always been a presence which has always been there to help me throught the hard times

pets and bad legs are a good combonation to have but it is harder taking them out for a walk ;)

Hi ;D

I have a cream female Pomeranian. She is 6 lbs. Her name is Ginger. I have to tell the story of why/how we got her... Its kind of sad but its also happy too. My husbands mother passed away a year ago (on Feb 15th),  in a strange drowning accident. She loved Pomeranians and used to raise them when she lived in Germany. His mothers name was Virginia, but her nickname is Ginger. After his mother passed away, we wanted something to remember her by (besides the treasured memories we have of her in our hearts) so we decided to buy a puppy (plus we thought it'd be good 'pre- baby' preparation).... We named the adorable cream puff Ginger and LOVED HER- she brought so much happiness to our lives after such a terrible tragedy-- funny how animals can do that, huh? :) Later, we found out that Ginger was born the same day his mother had died (STRANGE)-- on Feb. 15th. It only made her more special in our eyes. And she continues to bring joy & happiness into our lives. This last November, we lost both a pregnancy and Joe's (my husband) Father ALSO passed away, of a sudden heart attack (we think he died from a broken heart). Through all of this hardship, Ginger has always made us smile through our tears and I really think she is a gift from GOD ;D ;D
Sorry, long story but I had to share :)

Sarah ;D

Beautiful Story Sarah. I have not lost any of my parents or parents in law. I know that must have been hard. You are a strong woman to go through all that and still have such a great outlook on life. God definitely carries us through the hard times and gives us strength.

Many Blessings to you

I have a German Sheperd named Ricky. He's 2 years old.

I haven't walked him out for a long time now. Bad Knees isn't exactly the right combination for walking a dog. Well, if he wants me to walk him, he licks my ranky knee braces but sadly, I ask my mom to bring him back up. I live in our basement btw. I own the whole thing while recovering. lol.

I only have spiders ;D!!!! Uuuuuuuuuuuuuugh!!! I HATE them >:(, but as I am living on my own... when a BIG spider is sitting on the wall or running (!) over the carpet I have to kill it myself!!! And I am soo scared of them... silly huh??!
Never had an animal. My mom didn't want a cat (Noo it'll ruin my curtains!!!) and no dog (she's deadly afraid of dogs!) or anything. If I have a garden I will buy a dog, a golden retriever or a labrador! These are my favs!

I have a Newfoundland dog named Mr. Magoo who looks like a bear. He's a huge suck, putting himself to bed and carrying teddy bears around everywhere.

He too has had a torn ACL and he has hip problems, but he was definately my support when I was recovering!  :) He had his knee surgery last year and has now fully recovered!

I have a Doberman, Logan, who's really helping me with this.  He'll let me use him as a support to get up if I need help, or to lean on when doing stairs or slippery sidewalks.  He'll also sit with me on the couch and be a canine heating pad for both knees... he's big enough, at 110 pounds.  I don't know what I'd do without this dog!  I'm his third (and last) home, since the two previous ones either couldn't keep him, or couldn't handle him.  He's a smart dog and very loyal and protective, typical for his breed.

I also have goldfish, and a box turtle, Mick, who I'm rehabbing after he was hit by a truck.  If all goes well, he'll be released back into the wild this spring when it warms up.  He's a cute little guy and I'll miss him.

I've always wanted a lab.... Maybe someday when I finally live in something other than an apartment.  I can't wait.  Till then I have my dwarf hamster, which I call Nemo.  Unfortunately I made a mistake, I should have named him Daredevil because he's not afraid of ANYTHING!  He's a cutie, but he likes to jump off of everything (including the dining room table and people).

I too LOVE animals.  If my husband would approve I would have a house full.  Right now we have a dog (Rusty)  he's an Aussie/Golden mix and dumb as a rock but beautiful.  We have a cat, Juptier, an orange stiped big boy (and yes he does have a big red spot) He is a big sweetie and his purr is what helps me relax on those long painful evenings.
We also have a fish and a hermit crab..they belong to my daughter.
Pets are definitely a bonus -yes hard to walk but somehow they understand.

Hi all

I too am an Animal Lover and would have a housefull if my Husband would let me....

I have two German Shepherds both 9 years old. Holly and Jack. My husband brought Holly for my birthday and we got her from the German Shepherd Welfare Society. She is a complete nutter !!!! But I love her to bits.

We got Jack a few months later cause we felt sorry for Holly being left alone when we were at work.

Now they both get lonely....lol

Emma  - What is it about German Shepherds thinking they are years younger than they actually are !!!!

Oh Kopbird

I forgot to say  :-[  its great to know that you are the proud owner of two German Shepherds!!!! :D :D
Thats GREAT!! It must be hard work???

Duke my 9y old has been slowing down even more so recently his been poorly sick lately poor lad.. as I said before, he thinks his still 2 ::)

I can't believe that your two, Holly and Jack are 9y as well, they are brillant company aren't they!!

How do you cope walking them with your knees??

When my kneecap dislocates they know that something is wrong and Duke has had to go without his walk, only a few times as I have family near by and if my fella is working my mum loves to walk the Dogs!!

But I have been known to go out on my crutches and walk Duke, his brilliant off the lead!
Phoebe (Spaniel) well she's just 6 months so she's still learning the ropes!! ;)

Look after yourself and those hounds that are refusing to grow old gracefully!!! ;D

Emma

ps. Its funny as I was reading your email I knew you were from the UK....... only Brits use the word "nutter"  ;D ;D ;D ;D

Hi Emma

You are so right they are very hard work - they just shed their fur 24/7. But hey I would not be without them!!! they are the BEST!!!!

I do struggle at times to walk them but thankfully Hubby is great and does it when I can't. And when he can't they seem to understand...

Hi

I have a 140 lb. black newfoundland named Juneau. He is a gentle giant but likes to lean up against my knee "ouch", slime me with his jowl and sling his spit on the wall. I also have 3 cats...Max, Sabrina, and "Found a Peanut"...got her name after being discovered in a dumpster. Peanut loves to drink Juneau"s drool!...and yes, we somehow manage to keep the house clean.

We are big time animal people!!! We have 2 cats,Gypsy and Cassie and a dog,Mazey. Mazey was "dropped" at my grandparents house the day before Easter 3 years ago. So after some puppydog eyes from me and the children hubby caved! ;D
At first she was afraid of Gregg and the boys but now she has adopted our second son as "her boy". She is a german shepherd/Boxer mix and very strong! She also thinks she is a lap dog but often tries to climb up on top of my bad leg. Ouch! also when we first got her she came in the house she went straight to the litter box!
We have had Gypsy the longest. She was a stray who started following me and my daughter down the street. I told Ceebee not to get attached because Daddy would not let her keep the kitty. we had another cat at the time.We got to my husband and the cat climbed up on his shoulder and went to sleep. that was the end of that!
Cassie is defintely"my kitty". She sleeps with me every night. She knows when I am not feeling well and is all over me. When I stay up later than normal she gets in my face and meows like crazy! If she thinks I have slept to long in the morning she bites my feet! I know she does it cause she loves me but she scares me to death when she is following me around the house because she gets in the way of my crutches!

I am also an animal fanatic! Currently I have three dogs and three cats. My pet-collecting habit has forced me to take on a second job working in an Animal Hospital to help pay for their expenses.

My dogs are Rikki, Haley and Jake.

Rikki is an 11 year old Rottie mix with liver cancer. She collapsed last April and they found a tumor the size of a football in her abdomen. The doctors did what they would to prepare me to lose her. They said she had about 4 weeks. 14 months later you would never know she was sick if you saw her.

Haley is a 5 year old Boxer. She had to have her ears and tail amputated two years ago because of numerous (17!!) cancerous growths  on her body. She is a bit of a wild-woman but is very affectionate. She looks a bit like a seal without her ears!

Jake is an ancient Boxer that I got from Rescue 4 years ago. Up until about two weeks ago he was the healthiest of the bunch. He's going blind and beginning to fail but he is SUCH a love!

My cats are: Yoda, Spooky and Krazy

Yoda was rescued from a home where he lived with 17 cats and 13 dogs...I think he thinks he is a dog! He prefers their company to the other cats!

Spooky was a barn cat that was not being fed by her mother. I took her and her two brothers in and got them on their feet. Found homes for the boys, but Spooky w/ her long black hair and bright amber eyes wasn't going anywhere!

Krazy (originally named Autumn) was brought to the animal hospital where I work at about 2 days old. She and her brother were nearly frozen by the side of the road. Her brother didn't survive, but a technician bottle fed and nurtured her until she was ready to be adopted. But she proved to be a little too much for the average household. She was returned to the hospital and deemed 'unadoptable.' I had just lost my himalayan female so I agreed to take her home. She adopted well to the environment and having her declawed stopped her from hanging from the top of the draperies so I decided to keep her.

And alas, this means I will always need to maintain two jobs...one that pays my bills and one that pays theirs!

I could have sworn I had posted to this thread...maybe there was a similar one before...

Anyhoo..I had to reduce my zoo to move in May. I currently have Kyah (2 yr old Pit Bull and the love of my life), Nibblett (3 year old cat who thinks she's a dog), Goose (tiel) and Butters (parakeet).

The critters I had to give away were Decker (mini lop rabbit), Gromit (Dwarf Rex rabbit), Moose and Lil Bit (hooded rats)....and a bunch of assorted fish. For about 10 years, I was a "ferret addict". I had about 12 of them over a period of 7-8 years or so. I finally gave up on them, after losing 3 of them in something like 4 months to cancer. I have my first one, Cody, tattooed on my left ankle.  ;D

I am a wildlife biologist. To say I love my critters is an unstatement.  :)

I have 2 large dogs. Roadway is a akita/lab mix. Body is akita, personality is all lab!; he is about 10 yrs. old and still my baby.  Chaos is a german shepard mix. Goofy and silly, he makes me laugh everyday; he is about 4/5 yrs old. I have a cat too, blk. short-hair named K.C. (short for kitty-cat). He is more my husband's cat than mine; he tolerates me.

I do miss conducting raptor nest and burrowing owl surveys. Seeing those little owls foraging and flying about at dawn is very rewarding.  :D

What an awesome job! I love wild birds. Last month when we were camping at Lake Almanor an Osprey had a nest at the very top of a tree near our campsite. We got to watch her bring in fish for her babies. It was so cool.  I really want to see a bald eagle up close.

Osprey's are winter residents here in my neck of the woods (California). I was lucky enough to observe and photograph one on a survey in San Jacinto. They are awesome birds and it's great to see them with a large fish.   :D

I have been working as a consultant for about a year and half. Well, with this knee injury   :-/  I won't be able to get back to the field for awhile. Hopefully, by September I will at least get back to work and desk duty.

I feel in a ravine while on the job and did a belly flop into a streambed w/about 10 inches of water. When I did I busted my left knee open on a rock and crushed my right upper thigh muscle.   :o Emergency room doctor sewed me up and sent me home.

Well, 3mo later I changed Worker Comp docs and started p/t.

I did p/t 2-3 x week fr. Dec. '03 to July 1st this yr. July 1st my doc went in and did a LR on my left knee and cleaned up the back of my patella. (Darn thing just wouldn't stay in place). This is where things get fuzzy as I don't remember the 1st three weeks of July.  Fr. what I've been told I got septic, had an infection and hematoma developed & I went back into the OR a wk later. Doc cleaned me up and put everything where it's suppose to be and put me on antibotics. The month of July was spent sitting around waiting for the drainage to stop.  :-/ It finally did and last week (8/3) I began p/t.

Luckily I have a sweet Physical Therapist (Chi). Heel slides suck, I can do leg lifts, but when Chi does the manual manipulation I feel like screaming and passing out!  :'(.

I've been lucky to have Worker Comp pay for an home health aide sit with me first 6hrs/dy, then last wk. 4hrs/dy. This weekend I have been putting more weight on the leg and have been able last few nights to stay up long enough  to go out to dinner and a friends b-dy.

Guess I rattled a bit... nice to get it all out.  :) ;D

Ntrgirl,

Wow, you have had a rough go of it! I don't envy being in your position because I know how tough it is. PT is tough :P :P :P :P :P Try to keep up on your pt at home and take your meds for as long as you need them. I even used to take a half of my pain med and anti inflammatory before I went to the PT.

Hang in there. Things will get better :o :o :o :o I pray you will feel better soon.

Hi Christina:

Saw the doctor today. He says that if I'm not past 90 degrees on my ROM he's going to have to take me back into the OR for a manipulation.  He is full of [email protected]&&!  According to my claim adjuster, if he's determined to do it after the next 10 dys. and I am against it I can get a 2nd opinion. (Which I plan on doing before I go through any more excuitating pain!   :'( :'( :'( :'()

I am taking it one day at a time. P/T next 3dys... I plan on working as hard as I can. My focus for the week is showing improvement on my ROM and walking with a single crutch.  

On an up side... I was able to shower last night with the aide of a shower chair and my husband checking on me every 10 minutes.   ;D ::) :)


Hugs to all,

I added another kid to my family about a month ago....a male Pit Bull puppy. Kyah (my 2 yr old female Pit) is absolutely crazy about him. His name is Rorschach, as in the inkblot test....looks like a walking ink blot.  ;D

So...the current tally is: 2 dogs, 1 cat, parakeet, tiel, and assorted fish....

I have two pets, a medium-short hair cat named Milo (female, one and a half years old) and a parakeet named Bird (  :D ). I'll tell ya, these two little guys have been so helpful for me during all this downtime this past year and a half. It's so amazing, how great my kitty has been -- she's so loving and caring. I thank God for her every day! :)

My husband is the animal lover around here, but I can't say no to anything..... At present we have:

2 Miniature Pinschers:
            Nautia (aka Nauty girl) &
            Teeny One - yeah you read it right -
             our 6 yr old named her - she is the
             oddest shaped little dog, but we we
             love her - we found her in an ice storm
             out in the middle of nowhere.

2 Cats:  Shelton got him for our little girls 4th
             birthday...he started out named Shelly, then
             we figured out he was a boy - oops!  ::)
            Racer he is Shelton's brother, after we
             got Shelton, my son cried, didn't quiet
             understand why he didn't get one too, so
             how can you not give in to tears......

1 Hamster: You know, I don't know what his name is...
                  I don't care for little things that move faster
                  than I do, plus he has spent the night in my
                  bed without invitation -  :o

1 Domesticated Rat: Rizzo & I'm not his
                               biggest fan either.  They belong
                               to my teenage son!

Kim, I have been dying for a newfoundland puppy, and will have one hopefully before the year is out. THere is a breeder in a town about 40 miles from here who asks $700 for a puppy, and I do want a puppy even though at 8 weeks they are the size of some full grown dogs. I don't have a pond or place for it to swim, although a small inground pool that wouldn't do. The breeder says he /she would be great for kids. I do have a big rough coat black, retriever, named Max, and a smooth hair fox terrier, too full of energy and hormones about one year old named Lucky, that belongs to my 11 yeare old daughter, and she doesn' really take care of him.He has too m uch energy, and has knocked me down more times thanI can remember. HE needs a new home, nobody wanted me toneuter him, like our other pets, and he is too full of himself. now. I inheirted 2 cats, bud and tigger, from another daughter, and a stray kitten that was starving to death, literally weight a pound. named Baxter, add to that an aquaraium full of aobu 150 fish, I also inheirted, and they all gather around like kids waiting to be fed. I wanted a weimanraner, and had one located, and my oldest son opened his big mouth to a friend that rushed to the breeder, and got him, and then gave him away. or the newfoundland, but guess I'll wait until my knee is more stable, although I crave his company. I almost settled for a great dane, less shedding. BUT they all need walking, and I can't do much right now, and nobody else probably will. Max is abou 10 years old and walking around from room to rooom is enough for him, and Lucky, plays like a marathon, and chases any toy for hours on his own. I think maybe pets are something chronic pain patients need, and know they can be a wonderful outlet. Teresa KIm, tell me more about your newfie.

what a great question!  

I have a black Shar-Pei named Kimber who is 5.  He is very protective and loyal & I think he actually knows how to make me laugh when he pulls his antics! He lays by my side on the floor wherever I am.

My other dog is a Chinese Pug named Bailey who is 3.  She's an absolute clown.. she knows tons of tricks & loves to cuddle w/ the big dog..

The last time I took them to the kennel a man saw them commented "Now THERE'S a motley crue!"  :)

Hi Animal People!!

My "roomie" is a Siamese kitty named Tucker.   He is my sanity and sounding board though the knee pain.  Isn't it funny how animals know when you aren't feeling well??  Tuck is the best nap taker there ever was.  He even fetches and runs to the phone when it rings.

I wish I had a house instead of an apartment so I could get a dog too! ;D

Hi!
I have one dog - a 16-month old Bouvier male and I have 10 fish.  The Bouvier is just starting to get out of that puppy phase.  It's quite an experience having a very large, enthusiastic baby in the house!  I wouldn't have missed it for the world, though.  I can say that now that it's pretty much over!

Live on a 100 acre farm, so critters are a must!!   :D

We have 2 golden retrievers, Zena and Zeuss.  One house cat (Snowflake) that's now a greenhouse cat cuz the new hubby won't let me have the cat in the new house.  Barn/greenhouse cats, Tiger, Jaz, Oreo and Lucky (he's used his 9 and borrowed a few lives).  Had a bird, but again ...no bird in the new house ??!!   Then there's all 39 horses.   My favorites are Find Time For Me (aka Ziggy); Zips Gone Country (aka Dusty), Scoots Warrior (aka Scooter) and Sugar Fox Otoe (aka Fred).  Had to have my all time favorite put to sleep 2 yrs ago this week -- she was 30 yrs old and had West Nile Virus.  Her nickname was Timer and she was my best friend for 23 yrs.  

Will add to the horse count this spring when babies are born and looking at getting either a Corgi or Aussie pup in the spring too!

8)  It's been fun reading about everyone's pets ... a nice break from reading all the posts about knee problems!

Take care and happy holidays to all!

Currently, I only have a Russian Blue cat who is 3.  Her name is Bailey.  This is because I am currently living in a small apartment and Bailey isn't a huge fan of other animals sharing her space.  But, when I lived with my parents, we had a pretty big yard, and through the years we had these pets

Iguana--Izzie, Blue bellied Lizard, Rabbit, Dog--Malachi, Chipmunk (it bit my dad so we had to keep it for 10 days to make sure it didn't have rabies--it learned to eat out of our hand and when it was released would wait for us outside our backdoor), and cat- Sammy.

I just have 1 cat which I adopted last year December from my local RSPCA Animal shelter. Her name is Ellie and she is a house cat that lives in my 1 bed ground floor flat. I am glad to have a house cat as I lost 3 cats in the passed who got run over on the main road outside my parents old house.

Ellie is a black and white domestic short haired cat and she lovely as she likes a lot of fuss and comes on my lap a lot and purrs away.

I'll go from big to small!

3 Quarter Horses
         I Too Can Pass (Buddy) is a bay gelding that is just the sweetest horse ever. He's really willing and has quite the personality. He loves to open his stall door and escape whenever he gets the chance. Good thing he knows not to go anywhere! Thats him and my sister after we bathed him before a show.

(http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/ii244/Lyndsey200/buddy.jpg)

         Lucks Bealady Tonite (Zena) is a sorrel mare, and we got really lucky with her. She has really great bloodlines, and is a great mover with a good attitude. We were able to buy her at a reasonable price because she has a rye nose, or a crooked nose. She was born that way. We love her all the same, and as long as the dentist does her teeth every 6 months, she doesn't have any problems eating. I figure I was born with crooked legs, and I still had a chance to live life to the fullest so she should too! I LOVE this picture of my little sister and Zena, "A girl's first true love"

(http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/ii244/Lyndsey200/zena.jpg)
         
         Red Cody Cowboy (Cody) is a sorrel gelding. He has been what has kept me sane over the years. I have been riding him since he was a three year old and all he knew was run and stop. I taught him everything, and the two of us were able to learn and grow together. He's like my other half in horse form. It's been so long I know what he's thinking before he thinks it! That's Cody and I at a horse show, we ended up winning that class!

(http://i266.photobucket.com/albums/ii244/Lyndsey200/CodyWestern.jpg)

Clyde, our black lab.... He loves to be a farm dog and chase the tractor.

We have about 20 chickens whom I do not always care for.... When they are in the pen, then I don't mind them. My dad, however, loves to let them all out. They get into everything and then there are feathers and everything else all over the yard, and even in the garage!

Chloe is the rabbit, and she loves my mom and my little sister, but everytime I feed her I swear she attacks me! I've had teeth marks left from the vicious rabbit, and all I was trying to do was reach in the cage to put in her food! lol, it's kind of funny, I always make sure to wear gloves!

Thats pretty much it for our little horse operation we have. I love having the horses, and they provide a real escape. I could spend all day in the barn!

Lyndsey ;D

I have 2 Standard Dachshunds, a 5 yo male and a 14 month old female.  I do various competitions with them like obedience & agility.  Believe it or not, I can not outrun them, so I've had to teach them to work away from me, sort of like you would with a Border Collie.

I did have a cockatiel, that I left with my mother, when I went away on vacation and she refused to give back.

Hi. Allergic to cats so unable to have one.  But we have had countless fish and tropical fish, 3 hampsters, 3 rabbits and now our dog. We got him when he was about 2 from a rescue home, now he is nearly 7. He is a cross between a jack russell and a corgi, I think they call them CoJacks :).  He is very sweet, has a beautiful nature and is great company. If you are feeling unwell he snuggles up as if to comfort you. I think it is lovely for children to grow up with pets in the home but it is very traumatic when they pass on :'(.

I have one beautiful Russian Blue named Beau.  Who isn't spoiled at all  ;D  He stays by my side, to the point of following me around the house whenever I leave the room!  He is of course and indoor cat, but meets us at the door just like a dog when we come home.  We also have 2 dogs, one black and one white/tan, both certified mutts. 

My Bledsoe post-op brace is black, so every animal hair stands out!  I went to the surgeon's office and noticed a gentleman wearing the same brace, but his was so clean looking.  I asked if he had animals, he said no.  I realized it was all the pet hair on mine, even though I use a lint brush and have washed the darn thing.  So many loving animals around my legs  :-*

As quoted earlier in this thread:
"Currently, I only have a Russian Blue cat who is 3.  Her name is Bailey.  This is because I am currently living in a small apartment and Bailey isn't a huge fan of other animals sharing her space. " 

Mine is the same, he HATES the dogs and his whole attitude changes when they come in the room, even if they are simply sleeping.  He goes psycho -- hisses, and given the chance will attack them even though they are 3 times his size.  Luckily the dogs don't take him too seriously and merely get out of his way.   He also hates other cats.  A friend bought me a very small stuffed cat, and he eyeballed it for a while until he thought I wasn't looking and attacked it!  Not playing, but full throttle kill!  Needless to say, I won't be getting any other cats.  The only pet he tolerates is the frog, who long ago lost his interest as prey since he is behind glass and can't be eaten  :P
