I don't like reptiles because I don't think they feel emotion. They just slither and skitter and are mean.

I don't have any lizards. That would've been cool as heck if I had one though.

I'm a flashlight otaku. Here is an image of a Surefire L4 with the aging LED replaced with a modern Cree MC-E light source. It has all of the creamy and smooth beam characteristics of an L4 with the light output of a much larger flashlight.

Actually, the light I pictured (the L4) is probably the best wide-beam EDC flashlight around, but it's been discontinued. The output is only about 12x a mini-maglite with the vanilla light source since it's old, but it has great beam characteristics for indoor illumination. The new E2E is also similar to the L4, but with a different bezel and reflector, along with a new LED.

You can still get an L4 for cheap on a flashlight forum or eBay if you look, but otherwise, I'd grab anything from Surefire's everyday carry line or a Fenix.

Oh I never understood the love for those, they usually are very unstable and tend to pluck their feathers quite often.

I usually wear something over my clothes when I let her out and she stays on my shoulders, the true problem comes when I let her out in more open areas like the kitchen for example, we just put a towel over a chair and she knows she has to take a shit there and not somewhere else.
Does't prevent her from shitting on the couch though, but a quick paper towel and water usually take care of the problem.

I have an Iguana but I feel like I'm not taking the best care of him. It doesn't help that I have no reptile veterinarian and it's very hard to tell whether he's healthy or not because they're very difficult creatures to "read."

Sometimes I get very depressed because I feel like I brought him/her into my household just to suffer.

Their fault for letting it out, a bird that was grown by hand who gets outside is as good as dead.
Especially parrot since they have a very heavy flight and can't stay in the air for very long.

Again, it's their fault for not keeping it under their surveillance.
Can't blame your cat for following his natural urges.
I have two cats with my birds, whenever I let my bird out I stay close to her even if the cats aren't around.

Those are pets that need care all the time and you never want to let them alone, especially ot if you don't keep it in a cage.
