I have a Mini-Rex, a female, whose name is Lola...and she is just adorable!! She loves getting attention, and I, personally, enjoy giving her attention. She loves to be let out of her cage, and when you rub her back lightly with your foot, she roles over onto her side and licks you!! She licks my hands like crazy! Whenever I give her kisses, she always gives me 10 times as many!

I bought one of these along with a texas cichlid, a plecostamous, an algae eater, and a few other cichlids. He was extremely territorial, and killed most of my fish. the last fish, a texas cichlid just swam at the top of the tank on some plants, half dry and baked out of water, hoping to evade the electric yellow fishes wrath.

I have 1 calico oranda goldfish in a 5 gallon tank with a black moor. They are both doing great. The oranda loves to nudge around the moor and eats like there is no tommorow. He comes to the surface where I can hand feed him. When he sees me he blows bubbles and gurgles water. So does the black moor. Funny eh?

I have had my bird for only 5 months. Though he is 13 years old and fully trained, he became hard to handle after a dog attacked him and now he has become nice. He hangs out with my 2 parakeets Scotty and Reggie.

How did you get him to hold still to take that picture? They are always darting all over the place. I like them because they liven up the tank. I always keep them with some cichlids. I just had two die today rather suddenly for no apparent reason with a pair of Bala Sharks. All I did was a routine water change and they were dead in two hours. I had that happen once before many years ago. One of the foods I feed my fish is beefheart. The Tinfoils devour it. They grow fast an big too. So do my cichlids.

mouseys are super cute but just a little advice - make sure you get your mouse from a trustworthy pet store - both of mine recently got cancerous tumors after only having them a year. the vet said this is common among rodents, mainly because of poor pet-store breeding. now one of them is gone and the other is extremely depressed after losing its only friend. i dont know what to do; it may not get along if i got another mouse.

We stumbled on to our New Zealand on accident. it seems someone bought her and decided a rabbit wasnt right for them. So they set her free in a neighborhood with a bunch of big dogs. Well, we still have her, 5 months and 3 cages later, milkyway is now a member of the family. We just love her! I have fish, cats, a dog, and now the bunny. Critters are great pals!

Fantastic pet. Intelligent, loving, cute, a challenge. I love mine to bits. Make sure you know what you are letting yourself in for before you get them, really do the research.

I had wanted ferrets for years. I didnt commit because I realised that they would be a big responsibility and needed the same (or more) commitment than owning a dog. I mean, lets face it some people think they smell and are vicious ( I like their smell and mine arent vicious ). So getting someone to look after them while on holiday could be an issue.

This year I decided to get two sisters from a rescue after swatting up on ferret facts for about 18 months in forums on the net. Father Christmas came early and got me a huge cage. I have had the girls for just over 2 months. They are lovely. They are cute, crazy sweet and have taken over our lives. My husband, who wasnt keen on the idea of ferrets, has gone completely soft in the head about them. My grown up sons think they are great. I have no problems with holiday care because sons will have them, or a ferret owning friend, or the rescue will board them. I miss them when I am at work and when I am at home I keep talking to them and stroking them through the bars.

When I let them out to play they go completely nuts. I change their toys regularly to keep them stimulated. Their favourite toy is a 21" diameter washing bowl with long grain rice in to a depth of about 3" deep, They dig in it, wrestle on it and scuba through it. It makes a mess, -I dont care, LOL. I have a hand held rechargeable vacuum cleaner and clean it up when I think necessary.

I limit them to one room which is ferret proofed. I plan to ferret proof the rest of the house to broaden their horizons.

I got the book "Ferrets for Dummies" which is packed with info. I also find there is tons of info on the net. One thing I have found though is that ferret owners are passionate about their ferrets and can also passionately disagree about their care. It is a case of hunting around for what info seems correct, not necessarily accepting the first thing you read.

BTW the subject of flea treatments seems to be a controversial one judging by what I have read on various message boards. Luckily my girls havent got them.
