Today after lunch the kids and I strolled through a pet shop. They are in need of a something to take care of or so they say. We looked at several little hopping and happy fluffy things one liked looking at Miss Littles. We checked out the fish and one thought she was something to check out. We talked about the care of all of these creatures. The fish. . . I suggested they might as well live near the toilet because that would be where they’d end up.

Now if you know me you know I love birds. Free and out flying free. I’m not sure why I love them so and I have no idea of why I hate the idea of caging them. Still I do and I’ll just bet you can see it coming. She looked the birds over and one cockatiel came up to the glass to see her. She moved to the other side and waved him over and he made his way around all the stuff to see her. I think had we stayed any longer I’d have purchased the little one.
My child has a gift for animals.

I’ve seen it before she once sat in a friend’s yard and called all the cats to her.

I may have a zoo by this time next year.

Thank goodness that bird was over my budget.

My son wants bird feeders at the apartment because he too loves them.

No rodents allowed. Not my rule the apartment folks.

Yep a zoo.

Once upon a time we had a cockatoo, fish, gerbils, cats and dogs.. in the short term I suggest a fish or two :)

If you lived in the mountains you wouldn't have to buy anything; every day there are gray squirrels, birds, coyotes, and the occasional bear in the yard, and of course my Queensland Heeler dog.

Fish are neat, but bone-up on their care before you buy, or they won't last long.

Darn, rodents make great pets (you know i love my pet rats...)

Sounds like your girl is an "Animal Whisperer". I like the idea of bird feeders.

Thanks for your loving support of me right now....its not like you have nothing going on, but you still reach out. That means a lot.
