[Sticky] Not Sure Where to Begin? Proust can Help!

I would love to hear a little bit about you and your fur family!  Please feel free to share photos & video clips.  Share what part of the world you live in and whatever you'd like others to know about you and your pets.  
 
Share some favorites things, too!  For instance, I love ALL creatures, I love Japanese pottery, miniature books, tiny pig statues, horror films, and reading—some of my favorite authors are Ralph Waldo Emerson, Emily Dickinson, and Will Storr.
 
If you're not sure where to begin try answering some or all of these questions...
 
"Le Questionnaire De Proust" or "The Proust Questionnaire" was all the rage among the literate classes of Victorian England—a hugely popular parlor game popularized by the French novelist, Marcel Proust who believed that, in answering certain questions, an individual reveals their true nature. 
 
I've revised the Proust Questionnaire for the pet-obsessed  😆 . 
  1. What is your idea of perfect happiness?
  2. What is your pet's idea of perfect happiness?
  3. What is your pet's greatest fear?
  4. What is your greatest fear?
  5. What do you admire most about your pet?
  6.  What is your most extravagant indulgence for your pet?
  7. What is the cutest thing your pet does?
  8. What is the worst thing your pet does?
  9. What is the quality you most admire in your pet?
  10. What is the quality you most admire in a person?
  11. Which words/phrases do you use ALL the time with your pet?
  12. If you could change one thing about your pet, what would it be?
  13. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
  14. What do you consider your greatest achievement?
  15. What do you consider your pet's greatest achievement?
  16. Where would you and your pet love to live?
  17. What is your pet's most treasured possession?
  18. What is your pet's favorite pastime?
  19. What is your pet's most distinct characteristic?
  20. What does your pet value the most in other pets?
  21. What is your pet's favorite food?
  22. What is your pet's least favorite food?
  23. What does your pet hate the most?
  24. What do you hate the most?
  25. What is the best things your pet has taught you?
  26. If your pet could speak (in words), what important piece of advice would they give you?
  27. What is your pet's motto in life?
  28. What is your motto in life?

I found you on Pinterest and I even have a board just for Red and Howling! I truly love animals more than I can say. I lost my best friend and the love of my life a year ago. I still don’t know how to live without him. Taylor was 15 and after we fought heart failure (meds four times a day) for two years by his precious heart couldn’t take any more. I have a 13 year old little Chihuahua and a mixed rescue who is 10. Hugs to everyone here.

Hello everyone!!!  My name is Debbie.  My current loved one is a 14+, tripod, gentleman chinchilla named AhG.  As they do, he has been with me through some tough times including the loss of my two beloved dogs.   I would say mostly I am a dog person but now is not a good time for me to adopt again.  I love the Red and Howling posts so much.  They really represent the way I feel about "my kids".  AhG was very ill 2 years ago.  I took him to an exotic animal specialist DVM. He had xrays, ultrasound, barium xray series.  They sent the xrays to a radiologist DVM.  They diagnosed him with a large hiatal hernia.  His chances of living through surgical repair were minimal so they declined to offer it.  It was either euthanasia or take him home to spend some time with him and try antibiotics and a special diet.  I took him home thinking it would just be overnight.  He took the med but only would eat a little junk food (raisins, cereal, nuts, etc).  Next day he ate a little more junk food.  This kept on and 2+ years he's still with me not eating traditional chinchilla food.  I always say his love of junk food saved his life!  I adore this little rotten rodent.  😍  Look forward to reading more posts.

For some reason it is not letting me post a pic from my photos. Every time I try to do it it kicks me off. I wanted to post a pic of my fur baby for the contest. Any ideas?  I checked all my settings on my phone and there’s nothing holding out picture attachments
