Animals are my life. XD No, seriously, I'm a livestock vet, they really are my life, I'm not just being cute.
For some reason, I have a soft spot for roaches. I bred them for a while at an insect zoo. Have you ever held or seen a Madagascar Hissing Cockroach? Those are awesome! Many non-pest roaches are actually quite beautiful.I love almost all living things :3 , birds, mammals, reptiles, etc. Even plants and insects, the only living thing that I hate and totally freaks me out are cockroaches XD, all kinds of cockroaches, besides that I can keep anything else as a pet or at least appreciate them from a distance.
100 percent. I love talking to them, playing with them, and believing that they are as much as humans as we are. Sheesh I talk to my dog and she responds by grunting and even saying yes and no half of the time XD
I really don't understand what fury that wouldn't enjoy animals, it just doesnt seem right. I mean, COME ON. Isn't the furry fandom based on ALL animals, mytholigical and real? But eh, that's my opinion :/
The only aimal I have come to hate are those damn geese. I wasnt even near one of thos suckers AT FREAKIN ALL and it tried biting my ass D8< Let me also stress the fact I wasnt near any nests or territory. It mustve thought my butt looked tasty at the moment XD Plus they are very loud and obnoxious T_T

Roaches (short of an infestation) usually don't meet the criteria, and am kind of flattered that they want to live with us. My mother hates them, though. I kind of wince when she smashes them with her shoe or a newspaper. She did convince me to wage chemical warfare against the waterbugs that lived in the sewer pipes, but they were getting into everything.
Is the Madagascar Roach and the Madagascar "Hissing" Cockroach different?
I have seen a few at pet stores labeled as "madagascar cockroaches" around here and they still freak me out n.n;;;. The bigger they are the more scared I get XD, flying ones make me get out of the house , fortunately they are rarer.
That part made me shiver XD, specially the handling part. I just can't get myself to like them... for the record, I don't kill cockroaches, I normally just move to another room ;;."Yep, Gromphadorhina portentosa! They will make a neat hissing sound with their breathing spiracles if they are startled, but they get used to being handled,"
We have flying house roaches in Texas! I'm not sure what species they are, but people in South Texas call them Palmetto Bugs. They look like normal german cockroaches but will shock you by taking flight.
