    yes, they do. they sure do. they could play ball together or something like that.

    now thinking of it what dr.croft said, a pet would be an interesting addition to laras home as well. i think an south american parrot would suit her as well. would be fun to see her having this bird on her shoulder

    Cats can be loyal too, if you know how to treat them.





    -a cat person who also has a dog.



    As for Lara, I can see her getting a cat and a dog. Perfect.

    lol, that people think automatically of pirates when you mention parrot .
    dog is anyway a good choice but i think a parrot would be more suitable for her since they look beautiful and can be pretty loyal as well. also because the environment they live in, could be laras favorite place (just a guess).

    and yes, cats suck. they sleep over 12 hours a day.

    Being a world traveller, shouldn't Lara's pets be kinda exotic? Like a parrot, or an ocelot, like Salvador Dali had?:

    ^Poor thing I think Lara would have enough respect for exotic and wild animals that they should be kept in the wild.
    Cats don't suck they rule, they're independent like Lara.
    Having a dogs like having a child,

    My tabbies were totally badass one tried to rip out an electricians throat cos he had the sheer gall to be in her house

    lol, i guess it depends on the breed of the dog.
    if we go according to statistics, cats sleep over 12 hours a day, dogs over 8 hours a day.

    @jurre
    glad you see it that way as well

    YES.

    YES.

    YEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEES!!

    Pls Croft Manor is like the glowing beacon of the classics. It gives me so much nostalgia :')

    And I love the idea of Lara having a cat too. She definitely sounds like a cat person. A dog would be too much maintenance for her lifestyle.
    You sorted the livestock, I grew up on corn crop but you fit me better than my Llama wool sweater - Llama Del Rey.

    If you know how to keep them entertained, then they sleep less.






    Lol just thought something, since Lara rarely stays at her house (adventures yaayyyyy), her cats (or any animal) will die of boredom.

    Y'all wrong!! There is only ONE beast worthy of being Lara's animal companion. One that is equal to Lara in majestic stature, can guard an entire mansion on its own, and as an added plus can even provide transportation for Lara. Forget about riding a horse, I'm talking...

    Ha ha ha...that so ties in with what I mentioned earlier.

They pass by one door that looks...rather sturdy and well fortified. As they stroll past the door, the new employee thinks nothing of it....until he/she hears a faint scream from just ...beyond that door? Lara, trying to act as if she isn't missing a beat, says semi-sheepishly: "Oh, don't mind that it's just the-- cat." And the two continue walking on...Lara, feeling as if she narrowly averted disaster, and the new employee feeling as if he/she might be in for more than he/she bargained for.


    Cats don't have owners. Cats have staff.


    My cat, Jonesy, is one of the coolest cats around. He practically runs the neighborhood. He'll sleep right beside my roommate's little dog, especially if I'm up on the couch. I honestly think the two would die protecting each other if it came down to it.

    A cat! This needs to happen! Lara totally seems like a cat person.

    Cats are independent, cunning, agile and totally and completely awesome just like Lara.

    I like the idea of the cat being a stray she adopted too, not sure why but I just like it.

    No "but" - that was exactly my point when I said it shouldn't be too much

    Making an actual manor from the ground up is a good idea, so that way we do not have a beautiful exterior and a TV Studio interior. But instead a realistic functioning home...

    Croft Manor Floor Plan:



    Hatfield House Exterior:

    Loading times aside, having a 1:1 copy is often just impractical. And I don't mind a little inconsistency when it's in the name of better gameplay

    PS. I think you meant "my two cents"

    Perhaps one end of the home was being remodeled and is much newer and cleaner looking to balance out the oldness?
    It worked in LAU's mansions, so sure, why not!

    Now that's just bollocks. Aristocracy doesn't have a "look".

    So, guys.... what do you all think is essential to have in Lara's mansion, if it makes a return in a next game?

    Pool?

    Obstacle course?

    Winston?

    .....Maze?
