They say that having animals makes you live longer, and if we go off that I should live to be 100 at least! I have always been a pet lover, The Husband not so much, but he has been very tolerant with me and realisticly probably balances me out so I don't turn into one of those crazy cat ladies Glowless has mentioned...
Over the years many pets have died of old age and my zoo was slowly replaced by children. So many children in fact, that by the time The Princess was born we had well and truly out grown our three bedroom house and we had to do a few reno’s to make everybody fit. This included knocking down a wall, sadly this wall was where my pet pride and joy was. My fish tank.
So I begrudgingly made the ‘right’ decision and gave my fish tank and its inhabitants to my neighbour, as she loved pets too and I could visit it regularly. We put the fish into buckets and somehow managed to pass a rather heavy 4ft glass tank over the back fence much to my husband’s elation and her husband’s dismay.
Since then we sold the shoe box and moved to the farm and I find myself with empty walls again, walls that need to be filled. So naturally I got the husbands approval
whilst in a during a moment of weakness, and before he realised what he'd agreed to I quickly went out and bought this: compromising position
And I plan to put in some of these:
and many, many more...
Unfortunatly, we kinda ran out of water this week, due to a leaking water tank and a lack of rainfall, which means I am going to have to wait for some rain before I can actually fill it up. I hate waiting, we don't really need showers do we? I'm very impatient you know.
So all is content for me in the world of animals, well, at least for a while that is. Although I did see an aviary I quite like the look of and I was kinda thinking about breeding some of these:
Do you like animals? What pets do you have?
