I only had him for less than a week. My mom reported that he escaped, but I severely doubt that.
My family wasn’t a fan of pets, and mom was a special mention. Apparently, pets pee whenever, wherever and are dependency. It’s pretty much comparable to a human baby so I wonder what has it’s been like when I was a baby.. Maybe I’d be thankful that I can’t remember.
My unrestrainedly rich uncle owns a successful fish pond business, and he gave me a tiny turtle that I loved. Every time I arrive home from school I check him out in the water barrel at the side of our house, and he’ll be there just floating around. I’m telling you, he’s like this wild one here:
Cool huh? Not long was the stay of my pet turtle. A storm came by and indoors was the safest place for the family. When the sky cleared out, I checked him in his barrel habitat and it was full. The water piled up and the turtle got away. You know what slow turtles always say, “so long, sucker!”
I was given another chance and my uncle gave me two fighting fishes, blue and red. They’re like underwater angels, see:
I’m torn, can’t decide which one is more flamboyant – them or peacocks. Anyway, you shouldn’t put them in one fishbowl together or else they’ll kill each other. That is exactly what happened, and some people just wanted to see it live in action.
The last pet I had was also the fastest gone out. One of my grandfather’s lovebird collection looked like this:
Didn’t even have the chance to see him fly. He dropped dead after hours. I was about 12 then. But now I learned that love birds tend to suicide when separated from their loved one. Awww, made me feel better. I thought I just have a pet killing aura that got stronger.
All these pets come and go in a flash; I didn’t even get to name any of them. Thing is, I want so bad to have pets; well, the lasting types. Right now, I’m eyeing another dog.
I wanted to share how my barking buddy messed my dad’s cake, or how many times my sissy hamster got away and found in laundry, or how a false-scorpion-outbreak-alert can make people jump every single time; but except for the death-themed ones, I don’t have any delighting pet story to share that people would fancy hearing.
Do you have any pet story that are funny, cute, embarrassing, or any story you’re proud to share?
