    Hello people who have too many animals. I have alot of animals myself (or just my mom thinks so). I have about 24 all together. And i cant stop getting more. It's like an addiction! I even call the pet stores just to hear the animals in the back ground. And when i call them i ask stupid questions like "do you guys have fish" or "how much is your feeder mice?". I mean stupid stuff like that. And here is where it gets bad, i have all the nearest pet stores on speed dial! My mom thinks im crazy, and she is going crazy because of all the animals in her house! And get this, every week we have to go to a pet shop just so i can look at the animals. I mean i will buy stuff when i get some money, and everyone there knows me! My goodness. Well enough about my addictions. Heres all of my pets

    -3 dogs(2 male, 1 female) Jazz, Duece, & Vali

    -7 cats(6 female, 1 male) Snickers, Cookie, Storm, Jumper, Suki, Sassy, & tiger

    -7 gerbils(4 male, 3 female) Bevis, Oddie, Burrow, Buger, Momma, Gracie, & Ommie

    - 2 green tree frogs(1 male, 1 female) Moe & Zoe

    -1 pacman frog (female) Albert, i thought it was a male but it turned out to be female!

    -1 southern ringneck snake (?) Fred

    -1 gecko(?) Dinna, like dinner but *uh* instead of *er*. It's name is dinna because it was suposed to be my snakes dinner but they became freinds!

    -2 fish(?) Leo, Jaws,

    Wow! Cockatiel crazy has a LOT of pets! Lots of money in them too. Just the Rocky Mountain alone cost a pretty penny, I'm sure. I'm down to 22. I used to have over 30 (can't remember exactly how many). I have the property though, so I'm following a lifelong dream. My mother had the same dream about saving animals. Anyway, I have

    HORSES

    Crackers (POA cross old, blind pony gelding)
    Saber (Arabian gelding I've had for 15 years)
    Jake (Half Arab gelding that is my husband's horse)

    DOGS

    Sadie (Rott/St. Bernard cross)
    Penny (Boxer)
    Whoop (Pug)
    Lola (Pug, and Whoop's offspring)
    Jackson ( 7 month old 130 lb. harlequin Great Dane)

    CAT

    Gus (orange domestic cat)

    PARROTS

    Nicky (Patagonian conure)
    Bobby (Dusky conure)
    Malcolm (Vosameri Eclectus)
    Sammy (Congo African Grey)
    Elliott (Blue and Gold macaw)
    Koala (white face cockatiel)
    Niquellina (Normal grey cockatiel)
    Meagan (Gold Cap conure)
    Audrey (Meyer's parrot)
    Popeye (yelllow front amazon)

    SNAKE

    Coconut (Snow corn)

    GUINEA PIGS

    Hickory (Brindle tortoise shell)
    Baxter (Tri color American)

    It takes us two and a half to three hours every morning just caring for the animals. Honestly, we don't know what we'd do without them! We'd be lost!

    Yes, it does sound as if you have an addiction, but animal collecting is a very common addiction. But I must admit that calling a pet shop just to hear the animals in the background is a bit overboard, lol! I feel that as long as the animals get quality care, vet treatment when needed, good food, and the SANITATION is good, there is no reason to think you have too many. But there are limits - when you find you are spending more time cleaning up after animals than anything else, you have too many, in my opinion! Some of these people on Animal Precinct (the collectors) are really in need of help, but I think the majority of us here know our limits.

    1 cockatiel

    That is all I have at this time because that is the number of animals I can afford and properly care for.
