I have an Eel named Oscar. Technically he was the school’s but I saw him first, and I named him. And I dunno how I got this nickname but his nickname is Tiggy.

I’ve had alot of pets through my life, I’ve basically grown up with them so I have a special bond with animals. The first pet I had was Amber, she was a springer spaniel. Amber then gave birth to 2 sets of pups, the first ones were mixed breeds so we didn’t keep any (it was heartbreaking giving them away) and the second one were pure bread so we kept one and named her Lucky. Amber took ill after she was diagnosed with cancer and unfortunately died. I then had 2 baby pheasants which we found wondering around the field one day but they got killed by a fox at a very young age. I had a number of fish throughout my life, I currently have 1 called Buddy. Lucky then was to give birth to pups but got into trouble during labour so she had to go into a section where she delivered 9 pups but she went into shock and died, this only happened a number of months ago and I am still heartbroken over the lose of her. We were left with handraising these pups but 1 died before we got them home and another passed a few days later. We had 7 upto the start of summer but had to give away 2 of the boys, Charlie and Simba, they come around often to visit the others, its quiet nice keeping their family bond after what happened their mother. We currently have 5 pups, Bambi, Bella, Dobby, Hermione and Nala, we are planning on keeping the 4 girls so Dobby is looking for a home and we think he has found one so he should be rehomed very soon.

^Nice one!  I thought about getting tarantula, but I’d be getting him at a reptile show.  Even after CDF, snakes still trump spiders in my book…
  I’ve got a snake (naturally!)  She’s a rather large Kenyan sand boa.  There’s also a fish, three cats, and a dog.  I’ll probably be getting a carpet python in the next few monthes too, I just haven’t found the right one yet. 

  As for animal friends I’ve had in the past, uhh, there were three other cats, two dogs, seven snakes, roughly 120 fish (I’m an amateur aquarist), five lizards, two rats, three rabbits, a turtle, and three birds.  Add in another (I think) 14 rabbits, two cats, three birds, and four dogs if everybody at my stepfamily’s gets counted. 

  I’m hoping to find an octopus or cuttlefish, but it’s difficult to find captive bred specimens, and I’m not really on board with wild captures.  They’re so fragile that shipping often times is fatal, so not only do they have to be captive bred, but local…I think it’s gonna be a few years for this one…
