PostSubject: Do you consider them pets?   11/23/2008, 7:01 pm

Just curious how many here consider their scorps, and other exotics pets.

Personally I consider my two emps pets, as well as my Chinese water dragon. They are not however, the same type of pet, as I would consider a cat or dog.

However, when it comes to my landlord, I consider them "living decor" because no "pets" allowed.

In my opinion, I could never consider a living thing I'm taking care of as less than a pet, and more like a collection. But can see how others can, because you can't exactly snuggle up with your scorpions.

I call 'em pets, but I think I think of them as more of a hobby.

I also refer to them as "the collection."

I just call them "the scorps" I don't really think of them as "pets"... I personally think pets are things you can play with, fetch, etc. like a dog!

I generally don't call them my pets unless someone asks me what pets do I have.

I consider our cat a family member, our reptiles pets and my invertebrates a hobby.
I get a lot more connected to our cat or reptiles,than I get to invertebrates. "Study object" might also be a good word for the invertebrates.

^Gross, dude. tongue

We've got a six-month-old siamese who hasn't gone into heat yet -- I'm hoping the fact that she's so tiny keeps that from happening for a while.

'Cause she's a cat, I bet.

Alternatively, 'cause she's a female. Wink
