Went with reptile for the Utahraptor (what, you never said it had to still be alive), and Wild Animal for a fox.

I've always been a dog lover, dogs>cats in my opinion. But I would happily have a cat as well.

So I voted Dogs and Cats.

Dog's doesn't like me, I like them but they don't like me. they always start growling at me even if I am calmer then calmest. I guess something in the inner me pisses them off. Cats however likes me beter. I like cats more therefore. No cat has ever attacked me however I have a memory of 2 Husky's 1 Saint bernard and even a fucking blood dog eating on me.. I've had enough of dogs <.<

Wild animal: Fox for me. Hopefully when I'm out of college I'll actually have a place with enough room for one ^.^;;

Dog (Maybe a German Shepherd, Beagle or Golden Retriever) and Bird (Parakeet/Budgie FTW) :D

My family have had/have several dogs over the years, and I've had nothing with good experiences with them.

But, if one is to pick among all kinds of animals, this toughen up quite a bit. Don't think I could make up my mind on this one, so I'll skip.

And as I've said many times earlier, a fox is a wild animal. While it can be domesticated, it would much, much rather live out in the wild where it belongs. It's also very demanding, it can make an awfull lot of noise, it bites and is generally quite a difficult animal to keep as a pet.

Have that in mind before you decide on getting one.

Not sure. If you ask me,

I would rather have a Sentient Ship...

As for 'real pets', well, I have a cat,

and our family has two dogs as well.

Trust me, I know a professional breeder and on more than one occasion have mingled with them and observed their behavior at all points in their life-cycle, I'm quite aware of the issues. And they are not domesticated, that's what happened in that RUssian experiment that left them hardly fox-like. This would be considered making them 'tame'. It's honestly a very easy process, and as long as you are a devoted, loving owner with lots of space and enough spare time and money to look after one, they'll do fine.

I would have to say a cat. They're easy to take care of.

I chose Dog and Wild animal.

For the breed of dog, perhaps a German Shepard or a Collie.

As for wild animal, I'd have to choose... a jackal.

Foxes are overrated. :P

That's good. My closest neighbour used to keep hundreds, if not thousands of foxes for fur farming, so I do know a thing or two more about them than most people.

Yeah. It's sad stuff. The guy I know bought the original foxes from a fur seller. Well, guess you could say 'rescued' but he knew the guy and the man selling them was ok with selling them. Now my friend raises them for people who will provide a good home and lots of -attention-. I'm looking at -you-, random people who think owning 'x' number of foxes would be cute. Know your facts!

If I happen to own a Fox, I would release

it into the wild. Maybe if I am lucky it comes

back every now and then, but hey, at least

it has the freedom to choose where to go

or be.

If an animal isn't accustomed to the wild, then releasing it could be highly dangerous for people, the animal, and the environment.

I was refering to... A situation

were the animal 'was' born wild,

and somehow ended up under my

care. I should have clarified that, thought.

It is not like people can read my mind.

Hit the nail on the head.
