    I've always had cats, the first cat we had was already about 10 years old when I was born and had leukemia so died when I was only about a year old. Our next cat after that got run over as have most of the others. :(

    Hmm... it was either a budgey (Joey) or a special hamster. I can't remember which - but they both died of natural causes.

    They filled the gap. :naughty:

    a fish called fred and I over fed it! Well every time I put food in he'd come up and eat it so I thought he was always hungry!

    I got a green parrot named Gola. And later a fat blue one named Jørgen Torfi. My brothers deliberately tried to find him a stupid name and it kinda stuck.

    I took them to the vet to be euthanized.

    Btw, are goats as hard to keep & uninteresting as everyone keeps telling me? I'm planning on buying one when mom and dad buy a summerhouse. The goats in Heidi were so cute! ;)

    :yes: They are. We had to big ones. A young one that was hillarious and used to do tricks :D and another one that looked like a sheep! They're not uninteresting, not at all, but bloody hard work. The 2 big ones used to go next door and totally eat there whole garden :rolleyes: aswell as eating ours. And the little one we used to take on walks round the block :lol: The other one died shortly after having a disease.

    Thats nice :p

    We had a dog called Pepper. She was lovely. My mum and dad got her before they had me but she died quite a few years ago. :(

    Some people don't understand why people could become upset about a pet dying but they sort of become part of your family. It's not the same when they are not there.

    :lol: Thanks for that! There's just something about owning a goat that is very appealing.. :yes: But then again, I may just be weird.

    I read somewhere that in the US goats are used to fight wildfire. :yeees:

    My first pet was a Scotish Terrior dog. She was 8 years old, almost 9 years old, when she died and we think that she might of had died from a heart attack.
