    If you could have any pet

    Discussion in 'The Lounge' started by Brandon_Trotter, Jun 1, 2010.

    If you could have any pet mytical, real, anime ect... what would it be and why ?

    I would have a gaint stag bettle

    why you ask ?

    simple, huge bug with crushing jaws, a massive horn and armor plating.

    It would be like having a tank with vice grips for a pet.

    i wouldn't have any... would you want yourself or your children kept as pets?

    That link you sent me was truly eye opening. I loved it! I think your right that animals should not be abused or caged. But, I belive that my cat and dog have so far as I know have had a better life than they would have without my familys help as both are animals were "rescued" from the animal shelter. I do understand your point of view. But, I think having a pet is ok just so long as the pet is not aware/inteligent like humans would be if they would be pets. Also this is a fantsy pet thread, I do not in anyway itended to create a gaint stag bettle as that would more a horrible decession it would be the only one of its kind and would not belong anywhere just to name two reasons why it would be bad. But, this being a fantsy pet I think it would be acceptable to say what you had always dreamed of having.

    It's really not question, for me. Ever since Harry Potter, and reading them, I've wanted a barn owl.

    I was a Chikorita in Mystery Dungeon (partner was a Mudkip :p) so I feel a lingering affection for the Chikorita, even though I'm more of a water type.

    Uhhh...I tried to google this and get a picture, but it came up with lots of inappropriate pictures...but the little pink guy from Treasure Planet would be mine. So cute.

    I don't know why my search resulted in the pictures it did...sad day.

    Edit: Here's one. Sorry it's giant.

    This will probably be a very boring answer, but I would probably just get a cat. I really like cats.

    ^ Agreed with this post.

    A T-Rex or a Pokémon would be cool and all, but with the T-Rex I wouldn't like cleaning up the mess - droppings or neighbours who are scrapped across my window alike - and a Pokéemon would irritate the hell out of me with it's neverending habit of saying it's name over. And over. And over.

    A cat (on the other hand) is clean, intelligent and self-reliant.


    If you asked me to be silly I'd maybe say a Cthulhoid however.

    Was that supoused to be a pun or something cogito or did I miss the meaning in the post before you ? I think that t-rex would be a heck of a pet but way to much work. Than again I had a parot once those things or preaty messy to. I've never see a pokemon in real life so I dont know what there like to take care of but, I think it would be great to have a pokemon like dragonair that was always my favorite. So cute, agile, mysterious and strong. Cogito that feline action figure you posted reminds me of the kahit from Oblivion. I would have to agree with the squirtle thing, when ash first met him he was "cool", a pokemon that actauly had a personality... I realy liked that episode as a kid. Me being an anime freak and all if I were to choose a cat I would chose my own neko ! kawai ! That is about the limit to my japanese. By the way it means cute if you didnt know. I did some research appently stag bettles make for preaty easy to take care of pets but, unfourently they only live for a few months. Also the chain chomp was so cool in link to the past for gbc I loved that game it was so funny. Keep the posts coming these are all preaty interesting.
