Animals I’ve Touched

A running list of different animals I have gotten to pet or hold in my lifetime. This excludes cooking purposes.

I'm honestly not sure when or why I started keeping track but here we are…

  1. Cat Domestic- Approximately 50, I love cats.
  2. Dog Domestic-Approximately 200, Everyone likes dogs.
  3. Rabbit
  4. Guinea pig
  5. Hamster
  6. Boney Fish-Various kinds
  7. Birds- Pigeons, Parrots, Parakeets, Peacock, Flamingo, Ducks, Geese- ok so I was bit by a goose but I feel like it still counts.
  8. Horse
  9. Hedgehog
  10. Chinchilla (his name was Mortimer and he is the softest thing I’ve ever touched)
  11. Yak
  12. Zebra
  13. Camel
  14. Ferret
  15. Cat nondomestic- Lion, Tiger (Tigers are way softer than lions)
  16. Dog nondomestic-Grey wolf
  17. Cartilaginous Fish- Stingray, Shark (I got to put in a tracking tab on a shark. Sharks are sharp and can give you a rash called shark burn)
