Noah, please ask your parents or guardians to spay and neuter your critters. There is a spay/neuter voucher you can get from the Lawrence Humane Society that all veterinarians in the area will accept if funds are an issue. If they have funds in this account they will normally pay for half of it. Stop those litters and neuter your critters (please). Pet overpopulation is out of control and it is preventable. We as humans have been doing a poor job in our stewardship towards our companion animals. Please help turn the statistics around. Together we can make this happen.

2 dogs (Lab and Corgi), 1 cat (American longhair), 1 Amazon parrot and a Gecko Lizard. I need some fish and I'll have the whole food chain...

I have 2 blue American Pit Bull Terriers, and one giant black 90 lb mutt that we're not really sure what he is...

Deion is not my pet, he is my friend and companion. I do not own him as living, sentient being can never be owned.

I have a litter trained house rabbit! Just have to remember not leave paper on the floor or wires exposed.

MD - yeah that first cat is pretty close. Our cats only seem to do this with the laser. I was wondering if it's because its the only thing they can't catch.

"... I have a litter trained house rabbit..."

Wow, 9070811, how did you manage that? You are so lucky. We got our rabit from the Humane Society when he was either 3 or 4, and too old to train. If I had known then what a mess rabits make, I don't know if I would have gotten one.

".. does your rabbit pay the taxes too?..."

Are you kidding? That would mean he would have to do something other than sunbathe and eat. No, I do all the work (and pay all the taxes) and he gets all the glory!

Fishing line is for sissies. Real men use trimmer cord.

Your "$" key is sticking, Nick. You might want to have somebody that knows about computers look into that.

Three dogs, four cats, two snakes and two turtles. Our turtles love to chase the laser toy, but they don't make clicking noises.
