As Jamie is gone, and there are no more cat killers in the house, we're looking to get a cat. To go with Daisy's large size, we would like to get large cat. Right now we're thinking Maine Coon, but if they come bigger than that (and are not of exotic lineage) I would love to hear about it.

We were also discussing a new (rescue, not a puppy) dog. Still hashing out the details, but we're thinking some time this spring or summer.

Damn, we're quickly returning to our "Zoo" of the 80's and early 90's when we had 2 dogs, 2 cats, 4 rabbits, a koi pond, an aquarium, a chinchila, and a couple love bird and parachetes. Actually, I doubt we will have an aquarium, bird, or chinchila again. But Some large American Checker rabbits or English lops are possible.

And that is still nothiing compared to before my sister was born and we had a small chicken farm with a variety of livestock.

Speaking of chickens, the avian bird flu has reached Turkey. And predictions on when it reaches the U.S., and via what route? I'm thinking a far flying albatros or boobie will get it near the Asian coast line and carry it to South America, and then it will proceed north.

Nah... Not big enough. We need a dog around Daisy's size, which is about 3' at the shoulder, and hopefully a good hiking dog (carries it's own pack, can walk for miles, and has broad paws).

A friend of mine has a Maine Coon, I think they are the biggest domesticated cats get. Be careful if you get one though, they are seriously playful so you pretty much have to keep every thing away from them that can be broken. Also, my friend's cat is a huge attention whore, which sucks because he's strong enough that when he rubs up against you he will easily move you, not cool if you're trying to feed him or do anything delicate. In other words, be prepared to give that cat a lot of attention.
