Weirdest pets?

Recommended Posts

Had an old man neighbor with 3 ferrets running loose in his rig. He'd put them on a leash and walk them one at a time. I looked inside the rig one day and you wouldn't believe the shape of his couch and chairs. Their front toenails are like razorblades. Unfreakin believable!!!

The Pot Bellied Pig's name is Rosie. She travels with a solo owner in a TT. According to her owner she is house trained and will come back when called. Rosie is friendly with people and dogs, our two schnauzers found her quite fascinating. If you get the chance you can go up and pet her. We met her, and owner, at a NY state park.

Is there more than one?

Dogs, 3 big ones, doesn't sound weird until you realize it was a couple in a tiny teardrop and to move around inside someone or a couple furballs had to go outside to make room.

 

They had a small older mini-pickup, an old beat up teardrop these three big dogs and were having a heck of a good time.

We had a camping neighbor that had a rabbit names Snickers. He had his own little padded cage that he travelled in. The held and petted him, but he was not allowed to run free.

 

Oh My, I totally forgot about the goat (baby) that a camper brought with them. I don't remember the reason they didn't leave him with whomever was taking care of the other animals, but he camped with them for a week. How could I forget that?

Probably. I don't know when you saw the pot bellied pig, but the one we saw was 14 years ago at a Campground on Fort Peck Lake in northeastern Montana. I have no idea what the pig's name was since we never talked to the owner/s.

Once we did run into a lady and her daughter that had 9 dogs in a big van. Come to find out they were going to do a dog show!

 

We also have friends that travel FT with 5 pups. One 25 lbs. mutt and 4 little Yorkies in a 45 ft. MoHo!!! She always complains of the vet bills.....Duh!

We were riding out in the desert in our RZR and what we thought was the middle of nowhere when we ran across a man walking his pet tortoise which was the size of a car tire....he said he had it from the size of a quarter and it loved to go for walks.

I came across a car stopped in the driving lane of the main road through a State Park that I was managing one afternoon. I talked to the driver and lone occupant who was standing near the back of her car, which was filled to brim with magazines, canned food, and what appeared to be all her life’s possessions. The engine was running and she had a bowl sitting under the back of the car collecting water that was dripping from the tailpipe.

 

She explained that she was collecting water for her pet rabbit. I tried to tell her she could pull into a parking lot out of traffic and get water from the restroom or one of the drinking fountains. She did not want to move the car while the rabbit, whose name I don’t recall, was under it and would not come out when she called it. I got down and looked under the car, and after moving around and looking from several angles I could not see the rabbit. Then she set some food out next to the exhaust and started talking to the rabbit and asked me to stand back so I would not scare it away again.


To make this long story a bit shorter, let me just say that it was an imaginary rabbit.

In Az. the people next to us had two very large parrots in two cages inside their RV. During the day they would bring the cages with the parrots inside of them outside for fresh air. The birds were beautiful but very noisy as they squawked a lot. Dave.

I wonder if that might be the same folks that we met at Rainbow's End several years ago? They had two macaws in a very large cage that had replaced the dinette in the motorhome.

Oh no! Thats sad. The best thing is to be kind. There are too many people who would make fun of her to her face.

I have thought about very small birds, finchs or canaries. They would not bother the neighbors and they are both pretty to look at and hear! I am definitely bringing my mantids.

mantids are COOL. the first year in my house, i found a mating pair, cut off the branch & kept it on my porch. they hatched the following spring - adorable minis! for years after i had increasing numbers of egg cases all over the yard. i have too many animals inside now to keep up with the outside critters.

There was a couple camped on the equestrian loop at Alafia River State Park in Florida that had two miniature horses that traveled with them in their coach. They also had two full sized horses that traveled in a horse trailer. The minis sure looked tiny standing next to the big guys!
