A silly post, but we've recently had a census.

I think my cats should be included in the census. I've got four: Tigger, Shiloh, Fiona, and Hope. All cats, and all are great little guys.

Canadians, tell us about your cats or dogs.

I have a 13 year old German shepherd called Mister. Bon vivant, former ladies' man, and chaser of cats. His name wasn't always Mister but it became clear he was der Herr, the Lord of the Manor, early on, and so Mister it was.

His number one girl, also a German shepherd, passed away this January.

And then I have Nina, a 4 year old red heeler, also known as my shadow, who follows me all day long, footstep for footstep. She also dances, which we learned together during one horrendous Manitoba winter when I was trying to find a way to direct her energy. She has rhythm. I sing "I know, it's only rock 'n roll but I like it" and we dance across the seasons, like true Manitobans, on snow drifts and fields. Stardom cannot be far away.

And then there is Dante the inside cat, and the bane of his life are the barn cats, of which there are three. He looks down his nose at barn cats.

Do pet plants and pet rocks count?

I no longer have any pet animals but when I lived on my last hobby farm I had 4 working farm dogs, 3 cats, 2 goats, a flock of chickens, ducks, turkeys, geese and peacocks.

No. As animals, they don't need passports, just vaccination certificates, if they cross to the US. But at least one of my cats--Shiloh--has flown on Air Canada domestically. She didn't need to show any ID; both CATSA and Air Canada took my word as to her identity.

LOL! My Shiloh--and San Francisco, Denver, and Annie, all of whom have passed now--all started their life as barn cats. They had their quirks, and Shiloh still does, but they were all great companions.

I have pets but don't mistake them for humans. Sorry!

(I realize this thread is tongue in cheek BTW.)

if I have a package of pop tarts should I include each individual pop tart in the consensus if I've had them for over one year and they are dependents? ...as in dependent on my appetite? what say old friends of the north, what say? ah the old north. Yea I remember my college days out on lake Mississauga with all my comrades. We would get down to our boxer shorts and go and play hockey on the frozen tundra. One of us would score a goal and the other team had to post their humiliation all over social media...by that I mean the other team scores, you take off your boxer shorts. Luckily there wasn't any internet out there, we ventured so far...so no one ever got the pics. Now this was before there was internet even. What I'm saying makes no sense at all. I have to go
