What the hell are you doing with that woman!? You don't need that kind of negativity in your life ;)

You get used to it, mate; Chronic Synthphobia afflicts a fair amount of TNMSers just as much. :(

I am probably the only person here who still has their childhood pet ( although my mum currently looks after him ) - I have a tortoise which wandered into my Grans garden before I was born.
Very low maintenance pet although he is quite an escapologist as I used to build mazes and cages for him to escape from as a child. He also sleeps for 6 months of the year and eats plants and lettuce.

How old is he Keith? Neil is about 4. They're surprisingly interesting when you take the time to watch them. He loves climbing, and we're forever having to keep turning him back over when he tumbles.

We have 4 cats that we really should have sold 2 of when they were kittens, everything in the house has now been sculpted by cat claws.

By the way just a recommendation of zooplus for cheap online pet food.

One elderly (17) lady tuxedo cat Thelma and two tarantulas. Smithy, a Mexican Red Knee and Minny a Venezuelan Sun Tiger. All great animals and blissfully and necessarily unaware of each other. :)

Just spent three weeks with my sister in Canada and she has four cats. Siamese brother and sister pair and two huge black male brothers. Four cats is a lot but Yvette has a large house and plenty of room for them to play (and sleep) in. Each one has its own character and all were a delight to observe and fuss. The female Siamese was in real danger of being brought back to England with us. :)
To me you're a Captain, but to a Captain, you're no Captain!

No idea tbh as no one ever knew where he came from I would guess between 65 & 85 as it was the early 60's he wandered into my Grans garden.

Springer's rock. Incredibly entertaining dogs with a never ending supply of stupid. :)

She does indeed rock but thankfully is not that stupid. Other springer owners are surprised at how laid back she is. Of course she has her moments but is nowhere near as mental as some.

They're great dogs certainly. When we're walking on the local beach with other owners/dogs.... I've always thought that my Bichon wishes she was a Springer just by the way she looks at them! ;)

Hands up those who, by chance, regularly meet other dog-walkers out and about, yet only know the names of their dogs!  Can't just be me, surely... :)
