I have two cats, they're sisters! In the past I've also owned or lived in places with dogs, fish (koi), mice, rats, and gerbils. I don't currently own Guinea Pigs anymore but have plans for the next year or two to get a couple more which I'm really looking forward too! I also debated house rabbits and a dog but I haven't decided on anything yet.
I kind of live on a bit of a farm. So the list is long.
Three dogs (Two chihuahuas and a German Shorthair Pointer)
Two cats (Mixed, one 'blue' from a yard sale and one black rescue)
One fish (Red Tailed Shark)
Two Hermit Crabs
Two Guinea Piggies
Roughly thirty chickens of many breeds
Eight ducks (Two White Pekins and six Khaki Campbells)
**The rabbits aren't allowed to live in the house. Not my idea. They live in a barn though so they aren't exposed to the weather or anything and they all have access to go outside when they want to. I started with four who were rescues from a neighbor who got them for his kids and the kids weren't taking care of them at all. (One had such an overgrown nail that she actually broke her toes. D: ) Then one of the bucks ate -through the wall- of his hutch to get to one of the girls and she had a surprise litter. The two that make it six are from that litter. >_<
The only pets I have personally are my five guinea pigs, but my mom recently took in a 6 week old feral kitten. She's only been with us a week and a half but she's already super friendly with my family. I'm having to beef up security on the guinea pig cages so she doesn't swat at them though.
I rescue exotic animals. Right now I have my two beloved piggies, 3 chinchillas and a hedgehog. I also have 4 dogs, a cat who is incredibly beautiful and she knows it, and two mares, one of them a draft rescued from slaughter in the nick of time. Love them all to bits. I also have a very patient husband and an animal crazy 9 year old daughter.

At any given time it's a toss up who makes the most noise. LOL Didn't realize the piggy's would talk and chatter so much and Mr. Bo will talk your ear off. I've never had a cat that talks the way he does. He will even interrupt conversations. LOUDLY. Lovem all!
I've had two dogs before the pigs. The first was a female greyhound mix puppy. I was waaaay too young for a hyper little puppy like her so we had to give her back to the adoption center. The second was my neighbors mother's dog and their mother was too old to care for the dog so we took her. But the dog had really bad separation anxiety and we thought it would be best if we gave her to someone who could care for her full time. And now here we are 3 years later wanting more pets but we didn't want to get dogs again. So we got the pigs! It is also really fun reading the other stories people have to tell
