Animal Senses

Yes, it's another meme! :-) Ever since I found the Memes List I've been exploring. This one is from Saturday Senses, a weekly meme that posts triggers to each of the five senses to bring up your memories. This week's subject is pets / animals.
[sight]:: Which was the most amazing animal you have ever seen live? Describe the experience.
[taste]:: If you eat meat, do you ever think about the animal you are eating?
[smell]:: Does it bother you or have you ever refrained from getting a pet because of smell (its own or its 'subproducts')?
[touch]:: Which animal did you most enjoy peting, holding or touching for whatever reason?
[hearing]:: If you have pets do they make any sounds? Does it bother you?

[sight]:: Which was the most amazing animal you have ever seen live? Describe the experience.
We met a monitor lizard at a reptile shop. Huge thing, scaly, didn't mind being petted. Weird.

[taste]:: If you eat meat, do you ever think about the animal you are eating?
On rare occasions. I simply can't eat rabbit anymore, for this reason. Cows, chickens, and sheep are "farmed" and I tend not to let that bother me. But if I had to "bring down my own food"? I might go veg, then.

[smell]:: Does it bother you or have you ever refrained from getting a pet because of smell (its own or its 'subproducts')?
It doesn't bother me and no, I only refrain from certain types of pet because they aren't my kind of thing. We keep the litter box clean enough that it doesn't smell at all. Personally, I think kitty fur smells like cinnamon and other exotic spices.

[touch]:: Which animal did you most enjoy petting, holding or touching for whatever reason?
I got to touch a Chinchilla once. They have the softest fur imaginable. Cats, of course, are my all time favorite for "petting, holding or touching for whatever reason" (which I do, frequently).

[hearing]:: If you have pets do they make any sounds? Does it bother you?

Our cats talk. They purr, chirp, yodel, mew, Mwrp, yell, and Beep. It doesn't bother me. We have a good relationship. I think cats should talk; I love for my cats to talk to me.
