Bill, I would like to hear more about what your cats eat. My cat has no teeth (he was a stray and he was in a bad way when we got him, his teeth were so bad that the ones that he had left had to come out) do you think he could cope with a raw diet.
We don't have a dog right now, I've decided to wait till we get a house. Hopefully, next month... But right now we have 5 cats. When I was a kid, I had 2 cats, 1 guinea pig, 1 dog, and 5 hamsters. Yeah, I had a zoo going on in my room since most of the animals were mine. The only thing that didn't sleep in my room was the dog because it was Mom's.
My son is like that phoenyxstarr, he loves animals of all kinds and over the years we have had all sorts of pets. He has never been allowed to keep them in his bedroom - but it hasn't stop him trying! One night we had a thunderstorm and my son went out to check on his rabbit, in the morning I found one of my largest and best food storage boxes on his bedside table filled with a bit of soil and a lot of worms. When I questioned him he said he wanted to save them from drowning!
