As some of you may recall, our beloved Mr Kitty passed away a couple of months ago. We have looked at other cats, but found none who suits us - or who found us to suit them.

However, after a lot of talk back and forth, my Better Half and I realised that what we missed the most was the added noise and company... and I recalled the pets we had when I was a wee kiddo. In short, this cute couple lives with us now - and while they won't fill the cat-sized hole in out hearts, they will keep my Better Half company when I am travelling for work.

What a delightful pair. I wonder how long before this "cute couple" will do what couples do?

Zebra finches, yes... they are still getting settled in, so we'll see what mischief they may or may not get into later.

Here we have an update for my beautiful Boy Oscar he's now turned two and half years old and he's become quite the stud Dog he's served three bitches and as another two coming this summer for breeding, he's turned into a very fine specimen for his breed type a Bedlington Terrier I'm going to keep a Dog pup from the next mating.

All that breeding can be quite exhausting.

The finches have really settled in and gotten used to us - the first couple of days we couldn't be near their cage without a flutter of wings, but now they hardly raise a fuss when we replace their food and water. And the male finch sings his little heart out every now and then, so they are happy little birds as well  Smile

Hey Hans, those are lovely finches. I'm sure you'll be happy having them with you.

My family and I always had birds when I was growing up. In fact, my dad still has a bunch of budgerigars that breed like rabbits, and make a racket! They're on his farm.

We used to have parrots (of various species), and they'd wander all over the house. One of them (imaginatively named Captain Flint) was like a person. She had a cage, but she knew how to open the door to it, so she should stay there when when she wanted to, and she would sometimes walk around the house looking for someone to hang out with. When we'd get home from school, she would leave the cage and be waiting for use at the door. Smile

I've had many pets, but my cat Snowy and Captain Flint are the ones I miss the most.

I'd still keep birds, but my wife doesn't like having them, and cats and birds don't mix that well.
