I used to have a goldfish named 'Babbles,' which was short for a mispronunciation of 'Babelfish.' Two weeks into my fish's life, I discovered the correct pronunciation, but Babbles stayed 'Babbles' because 'Babels' just doesn't have the same ring to it. :D Then my sis took my fish and renamed it 'Fishie' anyhow. (She claimed I killed her fish - also named Fishie...my sis is a creative one - even though she was the dummy who forgot to feed it. My poor Babbles died shortly after she took posession. Coincidence? I think not.)

Also, every year at the 4H fair, I campaigned for a rabbit, but I never got one :(

I have a pseudo-pet bird. He is actually wild, but seems to think that my back yard belongs to him, so he almost qualifies as a pet.

He is an Australian Eastern Honeyeater. He has brown speckles, darker on top than underneath, a sharp beak, and dangly red cheek baubles. He looks so like he is wearing earings that we call him an Earring-bird. He lives in a neighbours gum tree with his harem of three females. He is fiesty and aggressive, and so far neither of my cats has ever come close to making a meal out of him. He enjoys the nectar from the flowers of my gravillea, which he defends obstinately from pruning shears.

I call him Trojan, because he clearly imagines himself 12 feet tall.

I had a cockroach named Bob frequenting my flat up until my gf decided to kill it. She didn't believe me that I was keeping him as a pet. Also I have many many spiders named Boris, again, they are frequently killed by visitors. used to have rabbits, gerbils and hamsters, found that they all breed far too voraciously so I don't anymore.

We used to have a common spider who was in our bathroom named Harry. Amazingly he lived for about eight years, until I realised I was a guillable fool!

Well, I think everyone at PT knows how my family and I adore animals. I addition to our cats and (3) dogs we also have 3 Fire bellied toads, 2 hamsters (we had 3, but one died last week. *sniff* and wipe a tear off my cheek.), a gecko and a snake. I use to have pet rats as well, but that was before I got married.
