PostSubject: What animals have you had??   Mon 21 Jun 2010, 1:31 am

When i was younger we had 3 rabbits called flopsy, emma and sarah. We also got 2 gerbils which turned out to be male and female and ended up with 12 oops.

We got out first family dog when i was about 13 tara which is still apart of the family she was a rescue and is a collie x corgie she had a litter as she was pregnant when we got her bless her.

I got my first hamster when i was 15 called albert after my grandad lol, he lived till 3 years of age.

I then got my first pet rats at 16 minty n mylo made me fall in love with fancy rats what friendly and lovely animals they are.

Few months later we got 2 guinea pigs mumble and millie, mumble died so i decided to rehome millie to a couple who had 2 female g-pigs but one was seriously ill and didnt have long left so knew she was going to a good home where she would be loved.

i then got 2 more male rats about year later as my friend who got them from meeting my 2 decided she couldnt handle them and felt it would be better for them for me to have them.

I then got 2 male guinea pigs off ebay !!!!! they were sold with a hutch and cage.

I then got coco my first female rat who i adopted from pets at home but sadly i had to have pts only a month after getting her and few days after xmas because she had a cancerous lump and the vet said she wouldnt make it though the operation.

We got an african grey parrot george who was ten when we got him but sadly he passed a few months back even though he was a pain in the butt, didnt like people near his cage yet out of it he was such a lovely lad.

We then got alfie gsd but when i split with my ex he took him and refussed me to see him even though i owned half of him.

shortly after that i got thumper for my 18th b-day. my georgeous bunny who i lost a few months back :(

Then 2 months after i got stanlie my georgeous staffy who i adore hes my best mate.

I got princess tamika female rabbit to be friends with thumper but sadly she passed i think thumper killed her!!!

I then got zena and minx the female rats who i decided to rehome and made sure they went to a good home.

I got daisy the second female rabbit about one month after and she too died so i decided that it must have been thumper and he lived by himself and the dogs running round the garden lol.

I then met my partner who had hes georgeous staffy diesel in august last year.

In november last year i got my first ever cat tango my little man.

The newest edition is zeus mine and lees little man.

In total i have had

7 Rats

6 Rabbits

4 Guinea pigs

1 Hamster

12 Gerbils

5 Dogs

1 Cat

1 african grey parrot

Growing up our family had lots of different dogs, usually rescues and the main one I remember was our Labrador Jasper, who died 10 years ago at the age of 14.

Growing up we also had loads of hamsters and budgies.

Since having my own place I have had

4 rabbits
4 Guinea pigs
5 dogs
2 budgies
2 finches
6 goldfish
4 hamsters
3 cats

I think thats it. The 5 dogs include Dasiy and Cody. The other 3 were all rescued from stupid people who couldn't look after them properly. All at different times over the last 10 years. I took them on and looked after them till I found loving homes for them. I couldn't keep them at the time as Kayleigh was small and the dogs were all big breeds.

Fantastic, hard work but worth every minute. He was a real character, extremely tame as we handled him every day. He loved having his head and his throat stroked and would sit there with his eyes closed whilst you did it.
They have what they call a 3rd eye on the top of their head and this relaxes them when you stroke them.
Vets bills were costly as you need a specialist but apart from an infection in the end of his tail where his skin did not shed properly we did not really have to go very often until the end came.

We did find that a lot of people were scared of him and it was a pain at holiday time as only my mum would come in and look after him.

They need a big tank, we converted a large built in wardrobe as he got bigger as we just did not have the room outstairs so the spare room became his which became an office when he died.

I would love another but hubby became allergic which meant all the animal care was down to me and we had the dogs and chinchillas at the time and I work full time and I just never had any time to myself. We could not leave him to run around the house as the dogs would not tolerate it so we had to be available to excercise him every day. Some days we just let him have a swim in the bath if we were short on time as it gave him excercise and was good for his skin.

So we decided on a parrot instead as I had always wanted an african grey and regularly used to play with them when we went to the pet shop for the sprays and bulbs for the iguana and I fell in love.

Has a child we had a dog called Judy, she was some sort of mongrel - not sure what breeds she was though - sorry. I also had 2 hamsters of my own, Hammy and Goldie were their names.

Since leaving home, or rather my parents chucking me out, I've had,

3 Dogs, Samson, Ollie and Poppy
1 Cat, Smokie
3 Cockatiels, Rocky, Snowy and Jaws
3 Rabbits, Thumper, Scooby and Bambi
2 Guinea Pigs, they were'nt given names
Tropical Fish
Goldfish
and
A new addition to the family 2 weeks ago on Wednesday is Millie the long haired hamster. My daughter nagged me before we moved for one but I was'nt sure, then we moved and next door neighbours daughter had 2 hamsters, then it was nag, nag, nag, had no peace until I brought her one, lol.

would have to say the craziest pet i ever had was an Aylesbury duck named Dopey he was fantastic he thought he was a dog lol would quack at passer`s by on back of my sofa, he loved it in he bath when he was a duckling. He had his own shed in the back garden where he slept at night and came in the house durig the day needless to say i didn`t have any othe pet`s at that time. he was 4 yrs old when he passed i just found him dead in his shed one mornin was so upset

Also had a rhinocirous iguana named Max he was 16ft long had him 2yrs then all of a sudden he started to get agressive wih me and i had to give him away cos that tail hurts when they whip you lol

My newest addition is Jewel who i have not got yet but cannot wait to complete my family

we had a tortoise when i was a kid, but he took off, mam and dad said, but there again thay said there was a bloke called santa and a tooth fairy.

then we got a staffy and loved him to bits, my uncle bred them, very successfully.

no time for pets until years later but it had to be a staffy not 1 but 2.
my beautiful brin and dell no1.

my youngest alan had russian hamsters 1 to 6 but died when they were only a year or so old, we had tears, state funerals in the back garden, each hamster in its own light bulb box.
