Welcome to WebmasterWorld Guest from 220.127.116.11
I have an aquarium in my office containing Toliver the Turtle, 9 fish, two crabs, one tadpole, and a snail. And we are getting a puppy which is 17 days old right now and cute as heck.
One curious thing is the tadpole was added after a canoeing trip 6 months ago and it is not developing into a frog, very weird...

The groundhog has been crabby lately, however, and he sometimes blocks my path in obstinate defiance of my needs. Can't figure out what he wants.
Ferrets, OTOH, are fearless, whether it's good for them or not. My first ferret once scared the cr@p out of a cat I was babysitting, and went nose to nose with a German Sheperd (on a short leash). The ferret bit the back of the cat's neck, to show it who was boss, and tried to jump on the dog's nose, which the dog didn't really appreciate...
I'd much rather have a pet I have to teach to respect/obey me, than one I have to teach not to fear me... Then again, I've never had to teach a cat anything either way, so that's a big vote in their favor.
I used to tell my wife to cut to the chase; buy her plants dead…
My boyfriend bought me a little potted group of cacti for my last birthday, and it turns out two of them were dead in the pot, but you couldn't tell.
If you get her the sort of cacti that look fuzzy all over, and they dry up and die, they'll look exactly the same afterwards, and last a really long time! :)
1 Cat - Sweet Pea.
6 Parrots - Blackjack, Keno, Julius (his wife, Ethel, died last year), Petey, Pepe and Bubbe. Blackjack talks non-stop from the time she gets up until lights out.
1 Huge goldfish named Bob.
I'm pretty sure that if we let Blackjack have access to the computer, she'd make a whole lot more money than we do. She's incredibly smart and would do almost anything for a peanut.
