I have a horse, a rabbit, a dog, and 3 cats. My family who I live with have an additional 2 dogs, 1 horse, 3 cats, 1 bird, and 8 chickens. I love them all! I would like to rescue a betta fish again. I had 4 previously (in a divided tank).

Similarly I have a soft spot for animals that are more underestimated or not very cared for, at least not as much as the usual pet choices (dogs, cats, parrots, bunnies)That's an interesting point in itself. In my cousin's case, she is devoted to animal rescues. Leaving her often to surmise that it was the dog in question who chose her at a shelter or rescue operation.
She does have a tendency to be attracted to pets who may not be so attractive to most people at first glance.
When I read this I got very happy, your hamster is lucky to have someone caring like you doI love ALL animals and if I could I'd own one of everything lol
But with my teeny budget and even tinier apartment my choices are limited. But I don't mind really. I got myself a hamster (planning on getting one more) and I also would love to have at least one lil birdie like a canary or a couple of finches.
I liked hamsters before getting my own but now that I also own one myself, I can say they've earned my love! Not to mention how similar our idiosyncrasies are!
My hamster is solitary, loves to have her own territory/home and to make it up however she wants without being bothered much about it, is 100% asocial with the only exception being me (she likes me for the obvious reasons and I can say that she felt pretty safe with me and in my home since the very first day!). She lets me pet her and soon enough I do intend to let her out on the playpen I got her so we can further bond and so I can also pet her a little bit more (I can't get over her adorable round bite sized fluffyness) and she also shares very similar tastes with me especially when it comes to vegetables xp
I had spent pretty much 5 months doing research for my future pet and especially for hamsters. I got her a 80*50 terrarium, she has all the appropriate stuff and every day I think of ways to enrich her life even more. In fact I get hamster 'boxes' pretty often and I'm currently in the process of finding sprays for the enclosure (hard to find those where I am and etsy is awfully expensive )
Thank you!When I read this I got very happy, your hamster is lucky to have someone caring like you do
So we currently have two cats and an unknown number of fish both indoor and in the garden pond.
Our cats are rescue cats from a shelter, they are brother and sister - I have had 5 other cats previously, but I never had a cat that liked to cuddle as much as this one we have now (the brother):

It brings back memories from when my daughter was a baby and I carried her around in the kitchen - one handed cooking is still in my skill set
