If you were to get additional cats &/or other pets....

..what types would you get? I would get a large cat (long, 25+ pounds) and also a blue one. Other pets I might consider getting include a Jungle Cat hybrid, a medium-to-medium large dog, a ferret or a large exotic rat.

A big cat. We used to have a big cat, but I don't really know how big he was. Willow is close to his size, at 9 pounds, so Grizzly must have been at least 10 or 11 pounds. I would love to have a 15 pound cat, lol. 7 pound Buffy just doesn't cut it, though if she and Willow sleep in the same spot, behind my leg or whatever, then it works for me, lol

Once we move into an apartment that allows dogs, we are planning to get a Shiba Inu! I hear they are like cats in that they are very clean. Much like cats, they are also independent and have their own quirky personality. In case you were wondering, we would definitely get a puppy so we can properly socialize him to live with our 3 cats.

The next step for me is an all black kitten, then a calico kitten. I think 5 cats and an aquarium and 2 kids, and a husband are plenty till I buy my house. We just have a small 2 bedroom house right now. So it is a bit crowded, but I just can't resist those kittens! I actually saw some in the paper that are black. I might have to go "rescue" one!

I don't think I'll get another cat until one of the two I have is no longer with me (Unless some circumstance arises and I can't turn a cat away!). Next pet for me is most likley a dog. I'd love a Newfoundland, or a Doberman, or a Rhodesian Ridgeback, but I'll probably end up just going to the pound and bringing home the one that picks me

I'd also really like to get a chinchilla when the time is right... I can't have one now, as I don't have a house with climate controls (ie. air conditioning. We have heating but it's randomly dispersed in this old house) and chinchillas are VERY sensitive to varying temperatures.

I'm actually thinking about getting another rabbit... but... I dunno. I wonder how my bunny would react to having another of his kind around. Someday I want a dog too, and I'd also like to have ferrets again...

Since the BF wants another dog.......I think we will probably be getting one. He wants a Presa Canario or a Doberman. I want another APBT or a Rotweiler. I'd like another cat, but I think 4 is enough for me at least right now. I've been tying with the idea of getting a ferret though. I'm planning on moving my turtle to a larger tank, so I may get something for the exsisting tank.

Well, I'll just list 'other' pets that I wouldn't mind having one day:

a nice large fish tank with fish
a turtle (I miss having them!)
a prairie dog

But with alllll the kitties I'm pretty busy with them! hehe (though I might push for the fish tank one day )
