Haha! Bomb proof, love it. And yeah if a storm hits on the coast you will need it to be!
True, there's a big difference between most domesticated cats and feral ones. But really kind of you to take care of those on your land. Well done you!
Aww shame about your hamsters :(
Mine is a Russian Dwarf, just a little bigger than the roborovski hamster. She was so evil when i got her lol, but i tamed her, and now shes a friendly fuzz ball. I call her Pom Pom haha! She actually talks a hell of a lot too. I didn't realise how vocal they were, until i researched it a bit, as i thought she was sick or something. But yeah, she squeaks at me, and doesn't stop until i make a squeak noise back haha! So cute :)
I do have a few pets here i know. The gecko and the cat were mine by choice, and the guinea pig i rescued, and the hamster was a xmas gift from my brother lol!
We were shopping for basking bulbs for my gecko in pets at home, and he saw me watching this one particular hamster as she was sleeping upside down and looked so funny. So when i got to the tills, my brother came up behind me with the hamster!
He said he couldn't think of what to get me for xmas, and he knows i would never turn an animal away, so there she was :) He took another one home for his children too, so it was a happy xmas for these two little hamsters :P
I don't normally like to get any live animals from Pets At Home. I actually rescued my guinea pig from their shop! He was in such a bad state. He was underweight and had green gunk coming from his eyes and nose, and he was alone in the cage too.
I just remember thinking, i can't leave him like this. So i went off and bought a nice big cage, lots of accessories and the vitamin C he was so obviously in need of (they can't produce thier own vitamin C). And i took him home, nursed him back to health, and he is now a huge fat piggy, super healthy and still going strong 5 years later :)
I have to admit though, Pets At Home has improved dramatically since i rescued him from there 5 years ago. So credit where credit is due. And they have an on site vet in the actual shop now too. But i'm still not a huge fan after seeing the mess he was left in.
But yeah, i'm a huge fan of animals, nature and all that. I prefer the company of animals to humans lol. Plus they keep me active, and busy :)
And with any luck i'll have pet number 5 very soon haha!
But yeah, fingers crossed, and i'm going to get a pic of the egg later this evening when i put it in lockdown, so hopefully there will be something to see for you and anyone else that may be following this thread.
I'm a little worried about the hatching, as i've read different opinions online. If a chick "pips" and then theres nothing after that, is it ok to help it out a little? I mean, i know a lot of people say if it's not strong enough to hatch out itself then it's not going to make it anyway. But i would just feel so cruel knowing it's trying but not getting anywhere, and there i am standing there fully able and capable to help it hatch out?
I don't know, but i don't think i could just leave it?
