pets i've had in my life

in the trailer park a puppy that lasted a week before some neighborhood hoodlum stole him (apparently that story is a lie...i just asked my mom what the dog's, who got stolen name was...and she said he didn't get stolen, he bit the neighbors kid who poked him so we gave her to sunshine (our native american neighbor) who was going to new york, to prevent him from being taken from animal control

then we had jose...a black mutt who jumped up and bit my mom in the face one day...she responded with a fist to his face and a call to animal control

sebastian was my first ever cat...we went to florida for xmas vacation and when we came home he had moved to a neighbors house

stick em' up...he was our only big dog...and golden retriever mutt friend seth gave him to us because his family was moving...but really i think it's because he peed everywhere and chewed everything! my mom's shitty boyfriend renamed him shithead (which he continued renaming every animal we ever had for the next 7 years!) and one day my mom and i took him to the beach to try and lose him...fucked up i know...but in the end he was waiting at the car for us and ready to go home...i don't remember how we got rid of him

stew and rusty....stew was a rabbit rusty was a guinea pig...apparently stew was starving rusty but we didn't notice until it was too late...i couldn't look at stew after that without missing rusty so we gave him to some kid down the street

fred and wilma....they were already named....two guinea pigs which i made a small fortune off of! guinea pig babies get you like 5 bucks a head at a pet shop! they made too much noise at night and after a year of the house not sleeping we gave up on them too

2 iguanas....i can't remember their names but one of them tried to jump out one time and i grabbed her by her tail...she left in my hand i almost threw up! she was missing for a few weeks before she finally came out and i had to force feed her applesauce for a month because she had mouth rot....after she got better i gave them away

houdini/bandit...a ferret we couldn't decide his name so he got two! he got out of any cage we ever got so eventually we just let him run free and the house always smelled like warm pee....he died and it was really hard for the family favorite cat ever! big and black and lovable. he had a tumor and died after like five years

woody...she's our longest lasting's been around since 94 and she only likes three people, my mom, my brother and brother found her by a dumpster at a 711 on his way to woodstock part 2 or 3?

shaggy....he's our lovable pound puppy westy, i'd get him tattooed!
