All the animals in my life are inside of me - there is a wolf, a pig, a snake, a fox, a dove, a bear, a peregrine falcon, a chupacabra, an owl - my psyche is basically a zoo.

My spirit animal is the three toed sloth.

LOL!

:lol: Thanks. They can be quite naughty. My Lulu imitates me when I laugh.

I know the feeling. She's sitting on my shoulder as I'm typing this.

Maybe I should give you all of my cats. That way an army of cats on your lap protects you from pissed off cats.  :snicker1:

Lulu is a very smart little Timneh African Grey, who will not take kindly to any feline competition.

parrots are fascinating to me

theyre not as smart as humans, but that immediately brings up the question

what is smart?

they are beautiful and thoughtful. what exactly do they bring to the conversation of what life is?

i suspect they know m,ore than me

i have always been interested in them

but they require more committment than i have ever had available to offer


more people have been to berlin than i have

Lulu sounds like a sharp and no-nonsense hustler ready to strike in self-defense. I wonder how many cats Lulu can defeat.

Now, I am thinking about a video game where cats fight each other with martial arts. It will be like the cat version of Tekken.

My feline friends are gone but not forgotten. Cheers to everyone and their animal friends. More often than not, mine were better pals than my two-legged pals.

You'll have to host them somewhere like imgur.com and load them from that hosting site. Can't upload directly from your machine.

i have so many cats i cannot tell them apart visually and must rely on behaviour.

there are maybe five or six that i can recognize through age or pelage, but the rest i have to distinguish based on what they do. i think we still have around twenty

My feline friends are gone but not forgotten. Tried to insert an image from my computer but "Attachments" doesn't offer that option and all I got with the "Insert" option were the [img] tags. Maybe I'll figure that out later. Meanwhile, cheers to everyone and their animal friends. More often than not, mine were better pals than my two-legged pals.

We don't allow file Attachments or uploads for 2 reasons. First they massively bump-up the site size and thus hosting cost. Secondly we don't end up trafficking child porn of other illegal stuff.

Thanks Tank. Makes sense to me.
