Yoda, it's very peaceful to have an aquarium, but as you say can be a lot of work. Worth it. I'm sure. :thumbs_up:
Moobox, is Ketat a ferral cat that you're trying to tame? The poor dogs must be walking on egg shells. :hmz:
MM, nice haircut; just in time to avoid ticks too. :wink:
Ritad, unusual, but very cute, pets. :D (Bunnyhugger might have approved if he was around. 8) )

Ritad your bunnies are beautiful.

Yoda, we've never had guinea pigs, but my kids have had rats, hamsters and rabbits at various times and all of them have been lovely pets so I'm quite partial to rodent pets. My daughter once raised a new born wild rat which had fallen from the roof at the nursery where she had a weekend job. She kept it tucked in her bra and fed it every hour, day and night. It attended school with her until it was big enough to feed itself and leave at home during the day. It was the nicest, most loving and intelligent of all the ratty pets that have lived in our house over the years.

Do rodent pets respond when talked to? :hmz:

The rats and the rabbits, yes. Not the hamsters so much as they are mostly nocturnal. However I guess it also depends on how they have been brought up. Ours always were part of the family, not kept in a cage or hutch outside, but inside with us and out of their cages if we were at home.

I dont think so. I think that it must have belonged to someone. Why? Well, I dont see her going out to look for company so I'm assuming that maybe she has been spayed. But she hisses and snarls at everything and everyone. Except me. I think it must be because I gave it food and seems that this has become my station as far as the darned cat is concerned. But she's good company in the early hours when all the happy hand clapping makes it difficult to sleep. As soon as I can figure out a way to contain the animal I'll take it down to the vet to see what he has got to say and also to see what he's made of.

:clap: :clap: [color=#4000FF] You're doing a fine job, Moobox; the cat doesn't know it yet, but it will one day thank you with a purr rather than a hiss.

So I am very proud to introduce Tread Smartly to all my forumites family. He arrived safely to Djapana (DJ) on the 01/11/13 and is 3 days old in these pictures. He is doing very well and although he did forget he was a paint horse, I am delighted with these very curious fellow.

I hear the fireworks have started up again. In particular some just down the road from me sets off things that sound like you're under mortar attack. And my little pile of rocks is also at the ready. Two wrongs dont make a right but I'm one of those that believe that two wrongs sometimes make a wrong thing a bit more right.

We are fortunate that our beardies do not mind fireworks at all, but she does sing at aeroplanes and the ice-cream truck
