I've listed some pets we've had and their idiosyncrasies, and I invite you to share your list.
*A cat named Fred who went hunting with my husband, following at his heels like a hound whenever he left the house with a gun.
*A horse named Dolly who guarded the water trough and only let the cows and other horses drink when she felt they deserved it.
*A cat named Ching-a-ling who (somehow) climbed to the top shelf of a floor-to-ceiling bookcase and sat as still as a statue until just the right moment and then scared the bejeebers out of guests.

*A dog named Gertrude who slept on our bed without permission but never got caught. When you started up the stairs you'd hear a thump, and on the bed there would be a small imprint, but she'd be gone.
*A cow that absolutely hated one of my dad's shirts and would throw a fit if he came into the barn wearing it.
*A cat named Taz who sat on his rear like this--very undignified!
