    Two mice both called Goldie (guess what colour they were), a cat called Whisky (colour again), dog called Cindy, one called Penny, two more called Scamp and Toby and now we have Ellie. Forgot the two hamsters called Hammy and Sammy.

    Can't compare with snakes and rats.

    pets

    Have always had dogs but sadly last one passed away 2 yrs ago and can´t come to getting another one just yet. Never say no tho!!:thumb:

    As a young soldier in Borneo in 1966 I had a tame tree fox for 4 months called ""Who Did It"" I inherited it from the unit that was leaving after their tour of duty and he used to climb into the rafters of our hut and pee on things Hence his name of Who Did it!!
