We have had Hop-a-Long, the Lop-earred bunny; Bailey, the Flemish Giant bunny (she was a house guest for a month); 2 hermit crabs, (don't remember their names); 6 different guinea pigs (not remembering all the names); Penny, the fox terrier, and currently the ancient, antique, elderly Wiley, the Yorkie.  Hmmm, we have had quite a few.

Sounds like really sweet pets, well, except the hermit crabs - why them?

My husband has some animal allergies and had never had pets. The hermit crabs were the first type of pet we had in the house. They are an easy pet to care for and it was a good way to introduce my hubby to the world of pets.  Our kids had friends with hermit crabs and we decided to do the same.

Ah, smart way of easing into it. :nod: How do you take care of a hermit crab?
Miskwaadesi's avatar
They often like in a plastic box with lid with holes, of course. and pebbles in the bottom, a small bowl for water and one for food. Change food and water daily, and clean pebbles when needed. They don't really require much more.  We usually had a few shells they could move in and out of, too. Hence the name hermit crab.

No pets. But I'll be trying to keep a human alive for the next 18 years. If that works out I might get a dog.

Sounds like a really good plan, indeed! When is the big day btw?

Woah! How has it gone with the kittens?
JohnnieV's avatar
Oh it's fun to tell you, after all this months all 5 survived and are growing up nicely. One of our male adults got poisoned though and we lost him. But guess what, the female cat got pregnant again and last week she gave birth to another 5 kittens! This raises us to 12 cats right now and we really need to start giving some to people!

Hey, the holidays is around the corner :plotting:

That's a lot of cats now! You haven't thought about sterilising her? I mean it can't be that good that she's getting preggers with just months a part like that.
JohnnieV's avatar
We plan to sterilize her now after the little ones grown a bit and don't need her milk exclusively.
