What Animal Would You Like to Come Back As...Beside Dog or Cat and Why?

post #1 of 29
Thread Starter 
I would love to be a big fat sealion that lays upon the salty ocean rocks basking in the sunlight all day and have great fish dinners!

Or...a penguin...so I could waddle all about, be silly all day and always look well dressed but still be naked!

I would probably come back as a horse. I'm not sure why, but I have always like horses, and I think they're beautiful animals.

A wolf or an owl. I think I have a wolfish personality, yet have moments of owlishness. LOL. My friends and I once picked animals for eachother... And that was how they characterized me. Besides, those are my two favorite animals, aside from kitties.

Perhaps I am showing my ignorance, but uh, what is a Genet?


Ohhh! Look! I've graduated to adulthood!!!!

Genets were little catlike thingies with spots, I think. But are they still around?

I'd come back as an eagle, I think. I'd love to fly and soar and swoop and...well...no fear of my stupid mate deciding he's found a better lookin' chick and dumping me.

Yeah. I had the pleasure of knowing someone who had one for a long time. They are really neat critters.

Genets are still surviving right now, not extinct...but a lot of work has been put into them.

Wow. Now that's what I call an exotic and special pet! They must at least be close to extinction, aren't they? How did your friend get hold of it and was it bred?

Bear works for me: you spend the spring and summer, eating as much as you want, spend the cold winter months, holed up, sound asleep and you look good with hairy legs.

Not close to extinction. Maybe threatened, but not endangered either.

As to how she got him, I'm not 100% sure anymore, but I know that all animals that she has were either rescued or domestically bred.

I'd have to say either as an eagle- being able to fly anywhere OR
come back as a dolphin- I LOVE water and dolphins are cool and pretty intelligent!!

Oooh I like those genets and the servals are gorgeous. If I HAD to come back, I would come back as a bird, any kind. Because I would fee absolutely free.

I'd definately come back as a horse. I think they are THE most regal and beautiful creatures in all of Gods Kingdom.

I remember when I was a child, I actually got mad at my mother for making me be born a human instead of a horse. So I compensated and used a head scarf as a tale, and galloped, everywhere (to the extreme embarrassment of my parents), and whinnied and neighed when my parents friends asked me questions.

Hope I have always admired the animation in your signature. Now I know why you chose that one.

I think I would like to come back as a Humpbacked Whale. Just the thought of cruising the seas and seeing the underwater life up front and personal would be just wonderful.

Can I come back as a fox or a Bobcat
If not I think I also would like to be a Eagle I love birds and eagles are so majestic

I would come back as a female elephant. They live in a family group and are sympathetic to one another. I've heard that elephants visit the bones of their dead and cry tears. Also, baby elephants are so cute! And being big would be a Plus (size)!

Just remember, elephants' gestations are about 2 YEARS and the newborns weigh 60-70 lbs. A 9 1/2 MONTH pregnancy and a 10 lb baby were enough, for me!

Hmm.... I would probably want to come back as a lion from the jungles of Africa.

If I could come back as a felid, I would definately come back as a Black Leopard...

Id come back as a Cougar If it wasnt allowed, Id still do it and they have to chain me down to stop me! Tiger, leopard, jaguar, etc would be good too.

Later,

Another vote for coming back as a horse here. And since I've had this thought before, I'd love to come back as an arabian mare (thinking either bay or chestnut with a flaxen mane and tail...)

To me, horses= freedom. They can be just as beautiful under saddle as they are roaming free...

An albino python. When I was around 7 years old I fell in love with a picture of this creature and I told myself if reincarnation is true, that's the one I'd choose. Besides, snakes are fascinating creatures.

Does anyone here really believe in reincarnation? and if so, do you think you could actually pick what you came back as??

Yes to the reincarnation concept.

Regarding the second question, I'm not so sure that we have a choice, however I know that given one I know the answer, and wouldn't hesitate to pick it.

Either way, Living is only a part of existance.
