Cats, cats, cats, most especially my cat, Ruby. <3

That reminds me how is the Ruby-the-puppy?

I like most of these animals (respect all, like most) but some of my favorites, like chimpanzees, shouldn't be companion animals but allowed to live happily in safe natural habitats. : ) 'So sad that safe natural habitats are dwindling almost to non-existence. Sheep shouldn't be pets, either, although they're already domesticated to some degree, but since Shaun is animated and already anthropomorphized, I'd love to have Shaun as a companion. : ) (And dogs and horses and pigs... 'in the city, that's not very practical, unfortunately.)  Anyway, 'cute idea.

Pot bellied pigs are pets. They are very small.
Let's not forget Arnold Ziffel!

Ruby is 5 months going on 6. He ran away and was gone for 3 days. Came back skinny. He did not feel good. Now he is fine.

Oh, I'm so glad he's ok. He must be getting big but still cute. 

Yeah, I love any kind of pigs (although the little ones are especially cute) and since they're already domesticated, I wouldn't feel bad having one. I always wanted to adopt a rescued pig but, like I said, I live in an apartment in the city so that would not be a happy arrangement for the pig - and probably not Ruby, either. I'm not sure my landlord would be too happy about it, either. Considering I pay $25 a month in "rent" (on top of an extra security deposit) for my five and a half pound cat, I can't imagine what they'd charge for a pig, lol.

Ed,

For your consideration:

Venus Fly Trap
Fly Trap (2010)

Some people consider their Venus Fly Trap as a pet since they eat flies and other small creatures. One may argue that Audrey II from The Little Shop of Horrors (1960) and
Little Shop of Horrors (1986) is just a large Venus Fly Trap.

Hermit Crab
Attack of the Crab Monsters (1957)

Sorry I just saw the list is full. :D
So I picked 'Tarantula'. Spiders are pretty cool but also demanding pets. ;)

Dogs for me. I own two elderly ones (one is 13-years-old and the other is 11-years-old), which I have raised since they were puppies. They can be a hand-full, but they are often funny, still playful, and constantly craving for attention. 

What worries me is that they seem overly trusting of other humans. Some of the "nice" humans that they have approached were actually trying to hit them with canes, stones, or their bare hands.

Dimos Dicoudis dogs are prone to be one of the two: either too suspicious of other people or too trusting, unfortunately. Cats seem to be mostly nervous about anyone, although that varies a lot from case to case.
