Random Thoughts/Things?

I wasn’t really sure what to call this thread, but I’ve had this idea floating around in my head for awhile now. Basically, anyone can post anything here. Any random thought you have, any random thing that happens to you, any random question that pops into your mind. Have fun, and don’t be afraid to be random.

Awwwaaa your rabbits are adorable, oh my goodness! <33 Some of our friends have rabbits that they breed, and the babies are so cute. They might end up giving us one or two someday, and I would love that. I think having rabbits would be really fun.

I do indeed have cute pets! A dog, two cats, a parakeet, a beta fish, and four chickens. I’ll post pictures of some of them when I have time.

Cool! I have a dog named Bella too! She's also really cute. I wonder if our dogs would be friends if they met. I also have a cat, a lizard, and I think we're getting a new dog soon! I'm super excited! Here's a picture of my dog with my cat:

Oh they are so cute! My cousins have two rabbits Velvet and Snowball and are so soft. My sister and cousins and I and the rabbits can all fit in the rabbit's pen...nothing weird about that! lol

Rielin says fedex? (pffex) Maybe she is waiting for a delivery.

yes, Yes, YES. That is exactly me! The feel of my dance tights or other awful materials makes me shudder, but I need to like rub them or something weird. I also hate the feel of smooth wood. Ick.

Elliana says awaf

A waffle to go with your whipped cream? Sounds good.

I hate that feeling too! I get all sweaty and it feels super tight. My legs also get sweaty when I sit for too long, especially when I wear denim. Does that ever happen, or am I just super sensitive to certain clothes?

Agh, yes! I absolutely hate tights or leggings! I find them really uncomfortable. I also despise skirts. And clothes shopping (Me: Are we done yet? Mom: Try on this too! Yay! Me: *goes on rant about how all girl clothes seem to be sparkly, ruffly, revealing, or tight* AAAAHHH!)

Okay, I know the mood of this thread has been pretty philosophical and mostly questions but I have something I want to share.

We had this cat, her name was Jackie.  She was extremely fluffy, and we had a bunch of nicknames for her (Jackilous, Flüff, kittiot when she did something dumb, and more).  My brother found her beside a very busy road when he was with our grandma at a gas station.  There was a group of motorcyclists at the same gas station, and thus Jackie entered our live as a little kitten being rescued from the road by a group of bikers.

Now we had Jackie for a couple of years, and she'd grown to be a vicious hunter, not exactly sweet but social, odd little cat.  Then she started having seizures.  They got progressively worse, until one day about five weeks ago while my grandparents were feeding her while we were on a trip she just... left.

It's not uncommon for a cat to leave when they're close to dying, and so after a week or two and plenty of tears we realized she really wasn't going to come back.  We lit a candle for her at Christmas.

But today we got a call.  Someone had found her microchip.  We reached the person and my mom went straight out and brought her home and now our precious little Jackie is home!!!  She's in good health and I'm so happy.  She was gone for five weeks  I really really thought it was over!  Anyway I guess the moral is microchip your pets and check for microchips because there's no way we would have gotten her back if she hadn't been microchipped.  I'm so happy.

Oh, that story has such a happy outcome!

Oh my goodness, that’s amazing! I’m so glad you got her back!

Once my brother had a roborovski hamster (I ended up owning her later, but that’s another story) who was insanely fast and very skittish. Whenever she got away from us she was extremely hard to catch. Well, back then we lived in a very old house that had cracks around the cabinets, and one day Robo (creative name, I know, haha) escaped from us and went into one of the biggest cracks under the cabinets. We started leaving hamster treats out around the cabinet in the hopes that she would come out, and we even left her cage in the floor in case she would come back to it. But we didn’t see her, day after day, and we were starting to lose hope. Then my mom, my brother and I went out of town, and our dad stayed at home. While we were gone he started setting out a live mouse trap. He caught a mouse once, but still no sign of Robo. It had been two weeks. And then miraculously, one day, she appeared in the trap. He sent us a picture of her, and she was disheveled and her fur was greasy, but she was unharmed.

Your dad just earned like +50 points for not setting murderous mouse traps. ;)

I also had a harrowing pet experience! i know exactly how you feel! My dog Otter ran out in front of a city bus three weeks ago. he was hit, and sustained damage to his lungs, which caused an air bubble inside them. The procedure to fix this problem was far beyond our capabilities to pay for, and my parents told me that if he didn't heal on his own, we would have to put him down. After prayers and tears, we recieved a call from the vet, The air bubble was dispersing on it's own! Now, just three weeks after the accident, Otter is back to normal! Every day, I look at him and think, " did he really get hit by a bus?" His recovery is so miraculous i am thinking about making it into a movie, entitled "Hairy Otter, the dog who lived." (:

Does snow trigger a sense of elation, especially in small children? I seem to get exited just at the thought of snow, and more so when it actually sticks (not exactly common here in Maryland), but all my parents and other adults seem to see is future problems, like traffic or catching up on missed work.
