Other Pets
I've heard a lot of people say that if you get a cat you shouldn't have certain other types of animals. Large dogs, birds, small rodents, snakes and things like that. Having owned birds nearly all of my life and owning cats for a similar amount of time, I also know that a cat owner can have these animals together with relative amounts of peace. So here's the topic I want to talk about;

what other kinds of animals do we own here?

Along with my 15 cats, I have 2 dogs and 7 horses. Well, 5 horses and 2 ponies!;)
The 2 dogs live outside in a large run. I feel pretty good about Jordan, he's a Pitt mix; but Holly, a Lab mix will chase the cats if she gets the chance. Both dogs came from the local humane society and the cats are all rescues.
Three of the horses and one of the ponies were also rescues.

2 cockatiels, 2 lovebirds, 2 chinchillas, and 1 hedgehog as well as 4 cats :)

to keep the peace? when the other pets are let out of the cages, the cats are locked out of the room for a few hours :) works for everyone, but accidents do happen in freak events. we lost our budgie last year to our cat gylfie. i didnt see her hiding under the couch when i took toby out. he flew out of my hands and gylfie ran out and grabbed him, he had to be humanely euthanized. but knowing my cats, she didnt want to hunt or hurt him, she thought he was a toy. just grabbed him and left him. she was a kitten at the time. accidents happen, but peace can be carefully attained. our cats leave the cages alone though so we lucked out there.

Our cats generally leave the cages alone too. I'm sorry to hear about your budgie. We lost a fish a similar way

I have several cats, a dog, 1 cow, 2 parakets, and 5 baby opossums. The birds don't interact well with the other animals they stay inside the entry way in our house. The rest all together are like best buds! :) I have had almost no problems with mixtures of different animals. Our dog absolutly refused to chase our cats! :)

Beside with my two cat, I have a dalmatians and two love birds. I really like animals because I grow up in our farm with cows and ducks.

A Lab mix will chase the cats if she gets the chance.
