Default Unusual pets slide show...

I must admit, I feel sorry for some of these "pets." And I'd
never imagine letting a horse eat spaghetti at my table...!
or trying to keep tigers!

Yeah some of those owners just treat their pets like little toys instead of catering for their creatures' needs.

I once had a liger myself as you know, and it ended in disaster.

LOL, I'm not sure if you're serious about the Liger!, IT.

Somethings I don't think is fair to keep as pets either, they just aren't; they are wild animals and not fair to them. What surprised me too in particular was the iguana. Mine (which was a captive born) got to be 18 years old and was half the size of the one in that picture. I cannot imagine all that would be needed to take care of one that size, leapin' lizards!

They are so cute! I love the pig with the purse, the frog on the motorcycle and the man with the buffalo, I think lives here in Texas. Oh, well to each his own. I think I saw it on a tv show, where he and this buffalo were very close. Think it might have been called fatal attractions. I'm not sure though. Thanks for the pics.

Yes, and there's another show called Animal Interventions, about people who horde pets, or who have dangerous pets (like tigers). I don't have cable TV anymore, so I haven't watched, but i bet the channel online has some episodes.

Wow, some of those poor animals...The kangaroo looks so sad


Why would someone have a porcupine, a skunk and a lynx? Some of those animals should not be pets..

IT, that was ...bhahahaha...You just made my day. Wow.. Poor cats, though...

I wondered how the heck someone living is the US ended up with a kangaroo as a pet.

Sorry folks, wild animals should be allowed to live in the wild.
