Are you owned by a cat or two?

Or do you have a doggo or pupper who helps you feel safer when you are doing a frighten?

Pets are pretty great. There's even a thing called the 'pet effect'; owning a pet has been shown to improve your physical and mental health as well as your social life. Cool right?

 

On monday the 15th of August at 8pm (AEST) we're gonna talk about it! We want to hear all about your pets, what you love about them and we'll even talk about ways to get some animal companionship if you're not allowed to have one of your own.

 

The chat will kick off at 8pm AEST, Monday 15th of August 2016.

Log in and High Five this post for an email reminder. Tell us what you'd like to talk about by clicking "Reply".

I have 2 dogs, Bailee and Sid, both which were adopted from the pound. I used to live with a guy who had a bearded dragon and we also had a bunny called Mrs Cocopops but no longer Smiley Sad

Hi everyone! Looking forward to tonight's chat all about floofs! Cat Happy

 

Do you have pets? Tell us a bit about them? If you don’t have pets, tell us what sort of pet you would like!

 

I have a Miniature Schnauzer called Missy! Growing up we had Airdale Terriers.

 

This is Missy (sorry for the sideways pic!):

Just FYI we are more than happy if you want to post some piccies of your pets, BUT make sure they comply with the community guidelines and don't have any identifying info in them. Smiley Happy

Hi awesome people!

I'm not allowed pets where I live (the joys of renting) 

When I buy my own house (eventually) I'm gonna have a kitty, a dog and a pet sheep that I will train.
