    Default Domesticated Wild Animals

    I recently learned that the cheetah can be easily tamed and made a pet, which makes me wonder why people living in Africa haven't bothered to fully domesticate it yet; it makes such a cute pet, and the cubs sound like birds chirping when they meow, hoe could that get any cuter!?

    So what other animalswould you like to see domesticated into tame, pet-like, companions of society?

    I've always wanted a bobcat or lynx, but you can't have them within city limits (here). Nothing too big.. yet tough enough to probably guard your house.

    I have the next best thing. Cue Neko the Bengal:



    Some of the other hybrid cats are pretty interesting, as well. He is a bit much at times, though, and I'm pretty sure my taste for having something 'different' around the house will have long since subsided once the Neko Project has run its course. (Veeeery demanding animal.)

    my cat was born wild in a abandoned barn, she still has some traits of a wild cat, like tends to play little rough if you get her going, but she is good willed and means no harm.

    if i would live in country side i would take few silver foxes as a pet. they are so cute, make awesome pets and behave like some dog/cat hybrid

    I'd want a deer.
    I was sitting outside the classroom waiting to go in, and I saw an airplane hit the tower. The TV was obviously on. I used to fly myself and I said, "There's one terrible pilot."

    Cheetahs, compared to other big cats, domesticate easier. But they're still a large, wild animal with a lot of fangs and claws. Expect that you'll get mauled whether in play or by pissing them off, unless you understand them enough not to piss them off and don't play too rough and don't trigger their hunting instincts. They're not like dogs who have been domesticated for eons, who are social animals, happy within a pack environment with alphas (humans in most pet/owner relationships) in the lead.

    Female cheetahs are solitary animals who prefer territories. Male cheetahs bond with each other quite often for life, especially if they're siblings. They're also nomadic animals, always seeking females to mate with and reasonably bountiful food sources.[/love animal documentaries ]

    The more animals we can domesticate, the better for us. So far, most of the organisms we have domesticated have proven to be incredibly useful in the fields of agriculture, genetics, labor, and in many highly specialized tasks too difficult or impractical for a human or simple machine to perform.

    Better for us, and I'd wager better for them. Generally speaking, we're more likely to take care of species we give a rat's ass about/are useful to us. Now, I'm all for the preservation of greenspace and all, but like it or not we have a pretty wicked extended phenotype and the other critters that don't adapt to it are worse off than those that do.

    Granted, many of those that do suck. Rats, body lice, etc.

    (That said, I tend to find animals more interesting than the average everyday human -- But that's likely a scarcity issue. I'll see any given animal once a week or whatever... I'll have a hundred humans cut me off on my way to work with more humans on a daily basis.)
