DU Pet Survey: What is your Pet? [View all]

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by UnderReviewFor3Years (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Hi all, there have been several posts about dog and cats lately and I wondered what critters DUers have for pets.

I have a cat. And here he is stalking a Mockingbird.

Thread updated to delete farm animals and add rabbits. Forgot about the bunnies. Oops!
