What are your animals? Beautiful? Cute? Odd-looking? Mean? Sweet? Loner?
We have a cat, an indoor one, who I would call gorgeous. All white, green eyes. He’s an asshole, lazy as the day is long and so fussy he won’t drink water if there’s a hair floating in it and will caterwaul until you give him a new fresh bowl.
We have a barn cat that I would call adorable. She’s very small (6 pounds), orange, a little scruffy due to her barn cat duties and outdoor ruggedness. Friendly as all get-out. And unlike the indoor cat, will drink mud and eat skulls. She’s a killing machine, and I’ve seen her eat 5 moles and a baby rabbit in one day.
Our dog is cute. A small chihuahua mix with big ears and a happy demeanor. He’s such a submissive though. I’ve seen him submit to large moths.
Last year we got six chicks, and we now have two left, both hens. The leghorn has gotten pretty aggressive since the last rooster was sent to freezer camp, and she’s gotten less attractive over the past year too. Sorta scrawny and roostery. Our Rhode Island red is fat and beautiful. Between the two of them, the red seems to be at the top of the pecking order, but when it comes to people, she submits more than the leghorn, who will straight-up attack your ankles any chance she gets.
