    Default Unusual pets

    So is it just my family that like strange pets?
    We have the standard Cat, goldfish,and Canary (well the canary is history now)
    But we also have - 5 green tree frogs, 1 diamond Python, 1 marble gecko, 1 axollotal (sp), 1 scorpian, and assorted crickets and flies raised for food.

    My daughter has adopted a quarter of a brick as her pet brick... Buggered if I know why
    I may not have gone where I intended to go, but I think I have ended up where I needed to be.

    Don't stress over it Gra... at least it doesn't eat much, won't need neutering and won't climb trees, chase cars, etc. Probably as thick as a brick, though.

    It could be worse... my little 'un once adopted a snail. When she went to bed, big bad dad stepped on the bloody pest. Sadly, she remembered it the following day, so stupid bloody Mum told her "it's playing in the back yard." For a whole fortnight, she went out every morning to bring "her" snail back inside to play.

    We ended up buying her a goldfish.
    I may be weird, but I'm saving up to become eccentric.

    Good point there skew, as well as that if you lock keys in the house you can use it to get back inside, via the closest window. (Don't think the RSPCA would approve to highly of using the family hound for the same purpose though)
    Dave,

    I see... I'm guessing that she really wants a dollhouse but you've been ignoring the hints?

    How quickly they learn. [sigh]

    Careful - pet halfbricks can be very protective .... especialy in the end of a fast spinning sock

    Sadly, there is no such thing a A mouse.
    They come in mobs.
    Put some mouse poison in the evaporater trasy that sits on top of your fridge motor. The little bugga's use that water to quench their thirst.
    The trouble with poison is that they die in the house . . . somewhere.
    Just keep following your nose.

    A few years ago, while living on a few acres, I had a pet goat. Best pet i ever had. My girlfriend had a young clydesdale cross, we were breaking in ouselves, and a long haired cat.
    I also had a baby magpie that was brought into the vet centre and i hand reared it.
    Now we used to lead the young horse along the road to get him used to cars and bikes and such. Naturally the goat wanted to come along. He didn't want to miss out on anything. The cat also followed along because it wanted to keep an eye on the magpie who alternated between perching on the hoses withers and the goats horns.
    We must have looked quite a sight walking up and down the road.
    The rest of the menagerie that didn't get to go for a walk were two more horses, two other cats and about twelve blue tongues. We picked up a pregnant blue tongue that had been hit by a car. The minute we got it home it gave birth to twelve babies and died. As far as i know all twelve are still keeping the property clear of snails and red backs.
    Those were the droids I was looking for.
