Which pet? LOL
I have loved animals since before I could walk. I was always bringing things in, or getting bitten by stuff outside (including a huge alligator lizard that I picked up as a toddler).
As soon as my parents would let me I got pets. First, a giant cockroach, then frogs, and then kitties. I still have the kitties. We moved across the country and I brought all of them along.
It's gone crazy from there, especially once my parents separated. I love my animals!
It is impossible for me to think of living without a pet. I couldn't do it.
