What makes up your non-human family?

Sadly, my only non-human family passed away a couple of years ago. He was a hamster I'd named, Ming, and his life was cut short after a couple of kids poured juice on him. I woke up to find him dead the next day in his cage, kids can be so cruel. He was the only "real" pet I ever owned other than a couple of tropical fishes and a huge, creepy fish my father bought that was always staring. Although, I'd really like a rabbit or a teacup piglet, I've already got names picked out for them. 

Happy Blogging!

  1. Awwww, your poor hammie's death makes me so sad. I've had four hamsters in the past and only one died naturally. The others were suffocation behind furniture, breaking a tooth off and having to be put down, and a diabetic coma. I really can't do hamsters anymore, the sad deaths really take a toll on me :(

    Haha sorry for being a downer!!

  2. I would love to own another hamster but the cage got thrown out. It's a shame they don't live very long lives. I'm sure they're in a much better place now. :)

  3. Awww, condolences. What are the names you have picked out for them?

  4. Thanks, Sniffly Kitty. I was thinking Olivia for the rabbit and I want the piglets name to be Oscar.
