    If you were reincarnated as an animal, which would you prefer? and why?

    Want the speed of the cheetah? Eye of the hawk? Memory of the elephant? Indestructibility of the cockroach? Longevity of the tortoise? Pampering of a housecat?

    I think I would have to choose house cat. Get taken care of, have someone else clean up your poop and lounge around as much as I want to.  The only drawback is the life expectancy.

    I think if I was to be an animal I'd want to be a bear.  Sleeping through the cold snowy winter doesn't sound like a bad idea. They even have their cubs while they sleep. Also the only real enemies this beast has is man.

    Hummingbird. Tiny but very strong. People feed me sugar water just to look at me.

    I think I would like to be pampered like a house cat. However, I'm going to go wild and say a badger. Not only because I already am one (go UW!) but also because they are bad asses. No one messes with a badger, they hang out by themselves in a cave and do what they want with no one to bother them. I like that freedom and independence. Sounds good to me!

    House cat. The kings and queens of their domain. Plus remember, cats are the only animals that purr. I love my kitties. If I had to be a wild animal, I'd pick a hawk or some other large bird of prey. Hey, who wouldn't want to fly?

    I would definitely want to be some sort of bird because flying would be really awesome.

    I'd be a Leopard, I like the fact that they roam alone, are free and independent. I also like the fact that they are very elusive, and have a knack of disappearing. Definitely a Leopard.

    I would love to be a sea animal, such as a humpback! .I am fascinated by our oceans and would love to experience the splendors of underwater life.

    I think I'd like to be a hummingbird.  They are just so pretty!  And quick!  They live on nectar.

    If I were reincarnated as an animal I would be a giraffee...I could see e v e r y t h i n g....and I could reach the tastiest leaves at the top of a tree....I could almost touch the clouds...and could chat with the birds in the tree tops. For sure, I would be a giraffe.

    If I were to be reincarnated I'd come back as an owl. Wise, old, illusive and fairly unnoticeable apart from their haunting beauty and airy call.

    I would rather be a hawk because I want to feel the same feeling that a hawk feels when they are flying.
