Personally, I have always been a cat person. I had a dog once, and she was great, it is just a real commitment. Especially if you live somewhere where the weather is not always the best! Right now I have one cat, in the past I definitely had more though! What kind of pets do you guys enjoy having? I know my neighbor has a bird he really enjoys, or I believe he must because I can hear it squawking through the walls! I had an iguana once, it had been given to me by a different neighbor years past. Thing was a real beast though, tried to attack be once even.
