When you were little, did you ever catch a bug/small animal and call it your “pet?”?
Question by My Wicked Mind: When you were little, did you ever catch a bug/small animal and call it your “pet?”?
When I was little (3 or 4) I found a cricket. I had never had a pet, and this was a big thing for me. i named him, Crickety.
Crickety was a truly remarkable cricket. I loved him so much, that I gave him a bath, ending with lotion and baby powder. One of his legs fell off.
I loved Crickety so much, that I gave him a haircut, and “trimmed” his antenne.
I loved Crickety so much, that I dunked him in my hot chocolate so he could get a taste.
Crickety was a lot of fun, my mom and I played with him. I wrapped him in a blanket every night and gave him a kiss.
Crickety got the joy of playing in a maze of blocks with only five legs, and one antenne. A block fell on him.
Crickety was a truly great cricket. In fact, when he died (his head fell off.) I scratched a little grave in the front yard for him, and buried him. My mom found me, (butt naked) in the yard, scratching two graves, one for his head, one for his body. When I came in the house, tears were running down my face.
When I was a little older, I found a baby lizard named, “Shady”.
I loved Shady, and played with her. Then she ran away, and I think I found her days later like a prune.
I also caught a baby lizard, Lizardy. I fed him (Grapes) and I played with him so much. I remember he ran away, my dad felt so bad, he wrote a note saying, “THANK U SO MUCH 4 TAKING CARE OF MY BABY, LOVE LIZERDYS MOMMY” I was proud of myself. Then, dad found ANOTHER baby lizard and was like, “Natalie! Look who it is!”
My grandfather caught a “legless lizard” and one night, I let it out of the box, trying to play, “tag” and WHOOSH it was gone, xD
My mom caught a box turtle that became “Ringneck” because his neck was so fat it had rings xD and one day my mom let him go because he gave my sis salmanella!!!! O: O:
What about you guys? *itches head*
Now I have 2 Snakes and 2 turtles, so dont feel TOOO bad my legless lizard (who i think was a snake) and turtle ran away.
