Up until this month, we have had 1 cat, 1 dog, 2 horses, and about 20 chickens.
Then we rescued a kitten. Must have been about a week old. Unfortunately, we lost her. She never even had her eyes open.
Then, last week, I gave in to my oldest. After years of saying, "No lizards in my house!" I broke down and bought her a Florida Chameleon. At least it's smaller than the gecko she really wants....though I'm not sure if that's a good thing if he gets loose! This little guy is fast, and could hide just about anywhere! The store owner called him "Bubba" but dd13 renamed him Chami (cam-ee).
And, then tomorrow (am I glutton for punishment or what?), I'm going to take dd11 to the pet store and buy her a hamster. Don't really want him to get loose either! I've got a habitat already for him/her and I ordered a ball from Amazon today.
So there you are....come to my house, expect a zoo!
