I once had a friend that had no sense of smell. She had three 100
gallon fish tanks, a dog and a cat. All things considering, her house
didn't smell too bad, but it did have a cat smell. However, when she
got new carpets, the guy that came to install them almost passed out
when he lifted the old carpet. I guess her cat had been urinating
there for years and no one knew.

Oh my god, that must have been awful! ROFL. I don't know whether to laugh
or pity the carpet guy!

I've had goats and, believe me, you might want to re-think that wish!
LOL!!! I had two pygmy goats-a nanny and a billy. I adored Natashia,
but Boris S.T.U.N.K.!!!

Billy goat stink is one of the worst animal smells possible. Not only
did he smell horrible, but he wouldn't stop climbing on our cars. I
think he fancied himself a mountain goat.

They did have three wonderful little babies, though, who would crawl
all over me when I went out and sat on the ground with them. I was
there when Tasha gave birth to them and even had to help her with the
second one. (Goat midwife, ya know...) A friend of mine who already
had a gerd of hoats wanted the entire batch, so I handed them over and
she still loves them.

The goats were, actually, pretty darn fun, but I've decided to stick
with my cats, dogs, horses, cows & fish. I'd really like a giraffe,
though.....

Well, I saw this program about the Australian Bush: I'd like a Koala Bear
now. Anybody with personal experience around?

I've heard they are not as friendly as they are cute. In other words,
they are mean. Probably not a good pet.

Actually, the Koala is not a bear at all. Check these links for info:

It is a common mistake that non-Aussies make, even in documentaries.

Flippy in Melbourne, Australia.
