I was extremely lucky to have the most loyal pet ever: Twinkie, my Siamese cat! Hollywood and Spooky, also cats, both furry black beasties = my triumverate of awesome felines!

Any beastie??? Hrmmmm, this could be difficult. I would like Nessie, the Lock Ness Monster to be my beastie.

I would like some sort of dog hybrid. Possibly with a monkey. Would that work?

I wish I could make my cats loyal. They like me okay, but I'm not sure "loyal" is the word I'd use. More like "tolerant."

I would probably pick a dog- they're just so warm and cuddly and friendly!

How about a flying fox? Yessss.

Georgia said...

I'm changing my answer. I just chose Nessie before... but I need to make her a beastie...

I want a Nessie, Bat, Unicorn hybrid. So that she can fly, and have magical powers and a horn.

I actually think cats are perfect as is.

But if I had to make a chimera, I'd probably go for a cat that flies. A cat + flying squirrel, maybe.
