    Do you have any pets? Do they help you with your electronics? My cat helps me with dish and security cameras. If you don't what pet would you like to have?

    We had two cats. Holding off replacing them, for cost and travel reasons. We are trying to pay off our mortgage early. And then travel Space-A. No one to looks after our pets.

    But we will probably eventually get another couple of cats.

    I have three cats, none of them were planned except maybe the first one. He brought home the second one, my neighbors cat. When she moved she had come to realize her cat really didn't live with her anyway so she turned over his papers and chip ID. :) The third ran away from a horrible situation with three college guys in an apartment a couple doors down. She took up residence under my shed and the guys moved away.

    Now I have a ferule kitten that found it's way to my little kitty haven. Poor thing was skin over bones pleading for help. My three cats are absolutely firm on their position of "NO MORE CATS" and voice it loudly. But they let me feed it and he's doing very well. He won't let me touch him yet but he will come to me and cheek mark me and scratch at my legs. As soon as I get him tamed down a bit he gets a new home :)

    Picked up a 2 year old Chihuahua yesterday to go with my around 2 year old we found last fall returning from hunting... (middle of nowhere), Yesterday's acquisition came from a older couple who couldn't manage keeping her. (nobody to watch when they had to go out of town for medical visits etc)

    I've been working with the little kitten and can now handle him. He has the loudest purr ever. :) He has ear mites so bad it affects his hearing too. :( So before he gets a new home he loses the mites... and a couple nads ;)

    We have a rescue Tortie. She's a 6 lb purr motor machine that thinks she's being helpful.

    Pets...we have six cats, three dogs, two rabbits, two chinchillas, two ducks, eleven chickens and three horses.

    Occasionally there's a rescue animal staying with us until a home is found for it. My daughter is going to college to be a vet and I never know what animal might be here when I come home from work, today there was a few chickens that I haven't yet got the story on.

    As far as being helpful, no. They like watching and being supervisors though, especially the cats and horses:)

    Torties are great. We have a ten pound sack of potatoes named Jeannie who still has a kitten face at nine years old. My wife got her off of Craigslist about a week after we moved in together. "If you can catch her, you can keep her".

    We also have Nooblet (tux) and Casey (calico), who both came pre-named.

    I think it's kind of cold to suggest that someone would "replace" their pet. Even if you get a new pet, it's a new friend for you, not a "replacement".

    I see them so much, I figure I should post them.

    Misty, lives next door, 17 years old, one tooth left, somehow still can crunch the treats we give her

    Marley, Misty's roommate, scared of pretty much everything but VERY enthusiastic about kibble & treats

    Littlefoot, lives one building over, makes all sorts of weird purr sounds

    We call her Chiyo-chan, not sure if she has a home. Tiny, won't take no sh-t
