Definitely. Even though I don't have any pets of my own, my brother's fiancee has four dogs - two poodles, a shih tzu and an attention-hogging Yorkshire terrier. Whenever I visit her, I play with them. Sadly, I'm allergic to cats, so I can't spend too much time around them as it affects my throat.

I love animals and really hate the way some people treat them. It's horrible to see innocent puppies and kittens being kicked around in the street and moon bears being crammed into tiny cages. I think people ought to have more respect for animals and the environment in general.

Definitely, except I absolutely despise rodents. If I get anywhere near a rodent, I scream so loudly I probably deafen it.

I really like rabbits! I first fell in love with rabbits when I saw Bugs Bunny on TV. I tried to feed my friend's rabbit carrots, but my friend got mad at me.

I love animals. My first pet was a crayfish that I named Moonlight. I got her in fourth grade. My next pet was a betta fish that I bought in fifth grade. My cousin Rebecca bought one at the same time. And in sixth grade, my cousin Winnie bought Rebecca and I a small turtle from Chinatown. We named him Cod! I'm still working on getting a dog, though ...

Depends. If they're common animals like birds and fishes, then I'm not. But I think animals like giraffes and crocodiles and jaguars are cool. If I could, I'd turn into one of them for a while to see what it feels like to be so tall, eat other animals and to run so fast. So yes, I'm a cool animal person.

I suppose being the owner of a pet immediately makes you an animal person. I have a dog which we adopted from an animal shelter a few years ago, and she is the most un-canine creature ever. She can't bark, she curls up and spends most of her time sleeping in the sun. Although she's friendly with humans, she's public enemy number one with the dogs on the block.
