I don't really want to list all my rats, but they're all in this album: imgur.com/a/YTMJR
I also have "four" gerbils. I say "four" because technically I paid for three, my parents paid for one, but when I move I'm getting the one my parents paid for plus one I paid for and then my mom will keep two of the ones I paid for... It's complex, lol. I don't have pictures of them right now, though.
Away for a bit. Email at email@example.com if you need me. Do not rehome horses I hexed. Send them back to me.
Wesley Nicknames: Wes, WooWoo, Westiebue, Shpoogh (any any other ridiculous non-real-word-sound I spew out). Current Age: 7.5 (roughly) Birthday: No idea, we adopted him when he was already fully grown. Vet aged him at about 2 back then. Gender: Neutered Male Breed: Jack Russell x Chihuahua x Dachshund Info: Wesley is probably the most intelligent dog I've ever had the pleasure of having, and probably one of the biggest snuggle bugs.
Berry Flammable Nicknames: Berry (so far) Current Age: 14 Years Birthday: I'll have to find out Gender: Gelding Breed: Arabian (By Hucklebey Berry out of Ari Flambae) Info: A dream come true. He's still up in KY but he'll be coming home November 25th... it can't come soon enough!!
Thought I'd make a new post with my newest addition, and edit the original post so that Pheebs is down here so the original post isn't cluttered haha.

angora I think you said something about liking Greek goddess names in the chat box, what about Athena or Artemis? Hera and Persephone? The Egyptian (cat??) god is named Bastet I think And if you like astronomy, the Roman gods are based on planets it seems!
"Duchess" is a pretty girl though! It's still kind of a better name than my dog's shelter name "Innocent Eyes" haha (her sisters were "Baby Brisket" and "Girl with a Tattoo").
OOPS double post, I completely forgot to add my newest addition!
My mom's friend's hamsters had babies...not great....but I have a new hamster so that's cool haha
Feliks Nicknames: Current Age: About 8 weeks Birthday: n/a Gender: Male I think Breed: Russian Dwarf Info: This is the worst picture because he is INSANE. I can handle 1000lb animals and yet this is the scariest animal I've ever had. He's too fast and nibbly and small lmao

Nicknames: Midnight Monster, Demon or Demon Cat, Crazy Girl Current Age: Around 5-ish maybe? We got her from a friend so we don't know her exact age. Birthday: Unknown Gender: Female Breed: Cat/mix Info: My family likes to joke that Midnight is my 'familiar' because she rarely if ever leaves my side. She follows me every time I leave the room or basically move more than a foot away from her, and whenever I leave the house she yowls until I come back. She likes to be very close to me and often sits on my lap when I'm at my desk, or curls up on my chest/stomach/beside me when I'm reclining. She's a serious klutz and cannot be trusted to jump up on ANYTHING without knocking over or destroying everything in sight. She hates being petted anywhere but her head, and loves her ears being scratched. Although she is extremely moody and likes to nip and play, she never bites hard and very rarely pins her ears back, which is pretty funny. She likes Harley and will often play/curl up with him and rub up against his legs.
Harley Davidson Moulton
Nicknames: Harley (we mostly use this, we only use his full name if he's in trouble haha), Harley-boy, Silly Puppy Current Age: A little over 2 Birthday: November...14th, I think? Sometime in November, definitely. Gender: Male (neutered) Breed: Pit Bull (blue) Info: Harley was a surprise puppy who my parents brought home from a flea market. He took after his slim, not overly-muscular mom and we did not have his ears clipped so people sometimes don't realize he is actually a purebred pit when they see him. He is a complete pushover and as wimpy as they come. He is not brave in the least haha he whines over everything and hides from all large objects. He's very spoiled and jealous though and doesn't like it if he's not the center of attention. He's very smart and learned tricks quite quickly (he knows sit, shake, down, and crawl), taught himself to grab his food bowl and bring it to us in the mornings for his breakfast, and also learned (unfortunately) how to open and close doors and has occasionally shut the cats in one of the rooms >.< He LOVES horses and has a special bromance with my sister's dog-loving gelding, Ace.
Nicknames: Ringo, Buddy
Current Age: Around...hmm...was is 16 I think? Birthday: Unknown Gender: Gelding Breed: Bay; Quarter Horse (we think he might have some Thoroughbred in him as well) Info: Ringo is a very special boy to me and his story is sort of long so bear with me, please. I had a really bad experience involving an aggressive horse several years back which resulted in a shattered elbow and a truckload of emotional problems afterwards for me, and for awhile I wanted nothing to do with horses. My sister had gotten her horse, Ace, and we moved him to a boarding facility. The owner had made an offhand comment about an older gelding he had for sale, who'd been essentially abandoned by his former owner who'd had some medical problems, and he'd been pastured for a couple years without being ridden. I went out to see him and before I even got to the fence I knew which one he was in the herd, it was an instant connection. I don't want to sound cheesy or anything but his head just shot up from grazing and he nickered at me when I got to the gate. And I clicked with him right off, he behaved perfectly when I rode him for the first time even though he hadn't been ridden for so long.
Unfortunately, a few months after I got him, he had a terrible accident involving a cable fence which resulted in his right hind leg being cut to the bone. It wasn't broken and he suffered very little loss of movement, but it has been an open wound for almost two years, during which I've been caring for it daily, applying salves and protective topical medications to keep it from becoming infected or developing proudflesh. Happily, we recently found a team of vets who have agreed to do skin grafting for him, and they're optimistic about his chances for it to take. We've already begun preparations and in the next few months, we'll be working towards getting that wound closed finally. I'm excited because he is a fantastic horse who loves to work and be ridden, and he deserves to be happy and active again.
Nicknames: Dusty, Dusty-girl, Mama Current Age: 4 1/2 years Birthday: Unknown Gender: Mare Breed: Dunalino; Mix (we think she has a lot of arabian and quarter horse) Info: Dusty was a rescue. When we got her, she'd just had a foal and both of them were emaciated. They'd just come from a situation where the owner couldn't afford to feed their horses and had finally decided to let them go. We convinced the owners to let us buy both her and her chestnut paint filly, Tumbleweed, and set to nursing them both back to health. After her filly was weaned, she ended up becoming my sister's horse, and Dusty remained mine, so they're in the same herd and are very happy about it. Dusty had a terrible pawing problem due to her lack of food but since she's been fed regularly (and gotten a bit pudgy oops haha) and settled in nicely with the female herd, that pawing problem has become a lot less frequent and she is no longer pushy for her grain. She had barely been halter-trained when I got her and she wasn't good with her feet, but since then I've been working with her and she's improved immensely. She is very responsive to natural horsemanship training and is eager to learn and please. She is an extremely sweet girl and absolutely loves having her face and ears petted. I'm hoping to train her for hunter under saddle as well as perhaps some very low-level jumping, once I've got her saddle-trained.
Our family does have one more cat named Lil Bit but she's...I don't really consider her mine because she hasn't chosen to let me know her hardly at all haha, so that's why she isn't included ^^
Milo Nicknames: doesn't really have any, other than occasionally a**hole Current Age: roughly 14-15 Birthday: who knows! Gender: male Breed: half tabby/half siamese Info: ok, so this one's a whirlwind of a story. basically found this cat by the dumpster in our apartment complex when me and my roommate were taking out the trash...he followed us home (legit all the way back, up the stairs, etc) and then wouldn't leave. we finally ended up putting up some "found cat" posters and took him to the vet to see if he was microchipped. turns out he was...and disappeared from Salt Lake City (utah) FIVE YEARS AGO. and mind you...I'm in Flagstaff, AZ. which is like a solid 8 hour drive. the owner has zero idea how he got to AZ and just assumed he had been killed by an animal or run over or something loooong ago. long story short, they couldn't take him back, so they said I could keep him if I wanted. which is how I became mother to a random cat I found by a dumpster! its def been an adjustment (I'm not really a cat person, though I do like them), but he's a generally nice cat so its cool.

Kiwi Nicknames: buggy, birby Current Age: unknown but he's very young Birthday: unknown Gender: male Breed: celestial parrotlet Info: he was adopted from a pet store near me that does rescues after he was abandoned there by his owner, he apparently has an iodine allergy they didn't want to deal with, unfortunately i do not drive yet and there aren't any people in my area that can do blood testing to see if this is true but he's a good little birdie.
[/img] Skeeter Nicknames: bubby, bubby-cat, bugger Current Age: 18 Birthday: unknown Gender: male Breed: mixed/black kitty Info: he came to us when my aunt moved to grand caiman, he's an older black cat and one of the sweetest kitties you will ever meet, he's been in our family for only a couple years but he'd been with my aunt since he was a few weeks old.
[/img] Miss. Cocoa Nicknames: cocoa puff, cokey Current Age: somewhere between 11-15 Birthday: unknown Gender: female Breed: looks like a forest cat, (basically a smaller shorter legged main coon) Info: our neighbor brought her to us right after we moved thinking she might be our lost black and white female, she wasn't but she never left, she lives inside now with our other kitty and they fight a lot.
--------- edit: I added a pic of kiwi, forgive my horrid photo taking ability Edit: i removed our chickens because a bobcat broke into their coupe and killed all of them yesterday, even my rooster. RIP birdies
