I live on a farm so this is a loaded question, L.A.S.
I'll keep it brief as possible
I have 5 cats, Ceasar, Diamond, Fuzzy Wuzzy/Poofball, Ern Dogg, and Misty Girl. . . A black lab named Carmen, whom just had 11 puppies around New Year's Day. . . Three peafowl, a peacock named Indie, and two peahens Snow Queen and Sweet Pea. . . A canary named Cheepy/Cheepers. . .A leopard gecko, Goliath. . . And a big peacock oscar fish named Sage
More to come soon, lost my entire flock of chickens last year to foxes and bobcats. We also have deer that come up to the house to drink from the fountain I made from an old satellite dish. . . They are so tame that they let me stand about
10 feet from them and just look at me
Anyway, I love my animals and I don't remember many times in my life when I did not have any. They have been a true blessing and comfort. My cats and dog come up to me and place their paws on my leg when I'm upset and then jump up on me and lick my face, lol
Animals are such good therapy!
