Aww I love this thread and have now got a list of other pets I would like

I have 3 ex battery hens Hattie, Holly and Polly,
2 English lop rabbits Sooty & Sandy (I used to have 3 (Bucky Bear) but one sadly passed away on Boxing day )

Bucky Bear. Such a cutey with bundles of character. Miss him loads


1 border collie cross - Izzy (my fiancés really but I still love her loads
and my special little girl Poppie, my 5 year old Golden Retriever



I love her to bits and she follows me every-where. It never fails to put a huge smile on my face the way she greets me even when I have only been gone for half an hour

My lovely Joey cat.

and:





Our very own grinning (nearly) Cheshire cat, Crusha.

Both of them rescue cats from when we lived on the isle of Man, hence Crusha's name - it's Manx. We rescued them at the same time, Crusha was a year old, had been abused and abandoned with a litter of kittens. She still is a little scaredy cat, very nervous and hates strangers in the house. Joey is of indeterminate age, but is on Metacam for his arthritis, so it considerably older than Crush. He is completely opposite to her, temperamentally. He is a complete tart with other people. In fact we have a decorator in the house at the moment, and she cowers under the furniture to stay out of his way, whereas Joe won't leave the poor chap alone, and is bothering him all day for attention!

Always had a house full of pets, cats, dogs, birds, hamsters, but I think I am definitely a cat person.

Well, I think my username is a bit of a give away about our fids (bird keeper's term for feathered kids!).


This is the flock together... it's hard to get them all still and together, so this photo is over a year old now- they're all a bit bigger by now!

I'll introduce them individually however.

This is Seymour. He is the most energetic, and noisiest of the flock. We think he's the youngest, and is most likely Audrey's brother. He is paired with Eve, whom he adores. She tolerates him, poor boy, but he is a lovely little thing. Very cheeky and cheerful.



This is his sister, Audrey. She is the most nervous of our flock, but is very gentle and loving. She likes to kiss us on the nose, which is adorable. She is paired with George, and the two of them are very sweet together, often preening each other and feeding each other.



This is our little madam, Eve. Eve came to us with George from a family who couldn't keep them anymore. She has had 11 babies, so we are preventing her from breeding anymore as she is not in the best of health. She's the fattest (and greediest), and likes to cause trouble. She talks ("pretty" or "pretty Eve") which is unusual in a flock bird, but will only talk to me, not my DH. However, she won't step up for me, only my DH. She also sometimes likes to bite.



This is George. Like Audrey, he is a gentle little thing, but he's also very scatterbrained. He often daydreams or sits chirping to himself, and fails to notice what the rest of the flock are up to. He is quite a charming fellow though, and he dotes on Audrey.



So, my little flock!

I'm sorry you had to have him PTS, they say it's the last kind thing you can do for them though. I may be facing this with Arth on Monday (he was diagnosed with facet joint Arthritis in his neck at the start of December, but isn't responding to treatment, Monday is make or break I think)

I just wanted to say though, he's gorgeous, just like a mini Haflinger! We also have 2 miniature shetlands, little monkeys!

Aww gorgeous pets everyone!

BudgieMama your birds are lovely. I have a soft spot for budgies, it amazes me how they have a wide variety of personalities. We always used to keep budgies, my sister also has 4 at the moment. One of which is tiny compared to his friends but he's a very persistent and destructive little thing lol.

As for me & DH we live in an apartment so we can't have cats or dogs. Instead we have 2 bearded dragons and 2 musk turtles.

We've had the beardies for just under 4 years. We named them after two of our favourite game characters. Link (from Legend of Zelda) & Ezio (from Assassins Creed).

Ezio & Link when they were babies (and were friends)


As they got older they began to fight. Even though he was the smallest Link always won, so we had to separate them.

Ezio


Link


Klavier and Apollo are our newest members of the family. They've been with us roughly 9 months. Following tradition they were also named after game characters. Both names come from the DS game Ace Attorney:Apollo Justice.

Klavier


Apollo
