  • House cat for a rich family. Love to sleep and do nothing and just chill at day while being pampered and fed with the best food.

    A sloth. For all the sloth stereotype reasons.

    I think I might already be a cat. Except I am a dumbass cat who has to go to work for a living.

    I’m changing mine to monkey, which is my Chinese sign. Monkeys are smart and fun but can be aggressive. That’s pretty much me.

    I'd be one of two animals:  a bird, so I could sing all day and just fly around and see everything I wanted at any time - or a lioness...fierce, loyal, caring toward my family, and queen of the jungle.  Plus, no other animal could easily prey on me.

    Sea otter.  They seem to have the chillest life. Snuggling with their fam, floating on their back eating clams and crabs.

  • 'A house cat' was what immediately came to my mind.

    I have a thing for turtles, I love them.   But thinking about it, I think it'd be kind of boring to be a turtle.  Especially  the ones that live a super long time and get really big.

    I think it'd be neat to be an elephant, they're super smart and have social systems, but I wouldn't want to have humans hunting me.
    Same thing goes for whales.

    Bamboo. Koalas eat eucalyptus (and they are not bears). Either would be a chilled life though.

    An elephant. Even-keeled and thoughtful. Occassionally excitable. Kind of alien, distinct. I need a lot of food too.

    True story: both the lazy house cats at my old roommates house used to sit in my home office with me all day while I worked. I was so jealous of those lazy bastards. House cats really have it made.

    Nice choice! Hanging out eating fresh seafood doesn't sound bad at all. Don't they live in cold waters though? I don't know if I could handle the cold. Also, getting jacked by a great white shark doesn't sound too fun.

  • Although a lazy house cat sounds nice, I'd get way too bored.  I enjoy the adrenaline of mountain biking and snowmobiling and four wheeling way too much.  On that note I'd say something like a flying squirrel but I think it'd be amazing to see the world through a hawk or eagles view.  Hawk or Eagle for me.

  • I've always thought a dog in a "well to do" household of dog lovers would be a pretty sweet gig. The types of owners who take their dog everywhere. Have all of your needs attended to by people who are super into their dog and go on hikes and what not. Pretty sweet life. Also, I'm a total attention whore so it does seem pretty fitting.

    That said, it seems like it would be a shame to miss the opportunity to be something (cringes a little at the phrasing, but it is what it is) "wild and free." I was about to pick an owl, but now that I think about it a little I think I'm going with a cheetah. I mean, what must it feel like to run that fast? Yeah, answer locked!

    Not too sure you would get bored as a house cat. My friend had 3 "house" cats. they actually lived a fair amount outside and would hunt and kill all sorts of things. the cats would leave their prey dead on the front porch all the time. I remember walking up to his house and there would be a dead bird just chilling there. Another story of his crazy carts, his room was in the basement and he smoked so he had the basement window open. One night we are all just chillin and one of the cats comes into his room through the basement window with a dead rat hanging from its mouth. haha. pretty sure you could have some thrills as a house cat.

  • The problem with being an outdoor, or even indoor/outdoor is the shelf-life. None of the ones that we had ever made it passed 5 or so, I guess with the exception of Freeloader who was already an adult when she showed up on our doorstep and kind of made us her home base. Even she (who was a pretty big cat for a domestic type) I don't think was with us for more than a couple of years before we never saw her again (hopefully because she moved on and didn't become coyote bait). Given the choice, I'd rather be a little higher on the food chain.
