My first ever pet as a kid was a budgie named Jimmy. He was very talkative and was a real part of the family. We once left a tape recorder on when we went out and he was coming out with all kinds of funny things we'd never heard him say before.
What was your first pet(s) and tell me something about them?
A dog. We have lots of pet when i was a kid so i grew up as a pet lover.
My first pet was a cocketiel, his name was pretty bird mainly because that's the only thing he could ever say. He barely ever stayed inside his cage. He'd fly around the house all the time and repeatedly say his name. I liked him quite a bit.
A puppy called pudding,
He was black,
And had white on his back,
Alas he didn't live long
It was a collie, to my knowledge. I was only 3.
A German Shepherd - she was my fist playmate, companion and protector when I was 10 months old.
My very first pet was a guinea pig named Miss Piggy (hey, it was the 70s). My parents got her for me when I was five, and I've been an animal lover ever since. I've had cats, birds, turtles, fish, hamsters, gerbils, (and more guinea pigs), and even insects. Right now, I share my home with a bird, a cat, and a colony of Madagascar hissing cockroaches (don't worry, they stay in a tank).
Hi! My first pet was a blue Indian Ring Neck(IRN) parrot named Puffy. He was very cute. After a month or two we got another green IRN named Booboo. Unfortunately he died within 2 days due to cold.
Later, I discovered that Puffy was suffering from behavioral problems. Sadly, he flew away from the window after staying 7 months in my house. Even after countless efforts to bring him back...we failed. I have also written a hub about Puffy.
Then, my mother was gifted a bugdie couple whom we named Candy and Booboo respectively. Two months later Booboo died and we gave Candy to a trusted pet shop; where she could stay with others of her kind. Also we couldn't see her alone.
Almost seven months back, I bought a baby peachfaced lovebird. I hand raised him and named him Mumu.I have written a hub about Mumu too.
Currently he is going to be almost eight months old. Two months back, we bought a white-faced violet roseicollis female lovebird for Mumu. We named her Lulu (it means pearl in Arabic).
I love birds a lot... Nice question asked icountthetimes.☺
My first pet? Was a family pet and it was a German Shepard Police Dog.
Don't remember, probably a dog or a cat. I've had so many pets I cannot remember the first one. Most of my pets growing up were wild animals. lol
i cat ,white and black, very nice and cute , love she so much .
My first pet where I was old enough to remember him was a black and white alley cat named Jack who was blind in one eye. He was a real scrapper and ran away when I was 7. However, we had a cat when I was born who died before I was 5 and thus I know him only from pictures and family home movies. He was a black cat that had originally been abandoned by a previous owner.
My first pet was a Siamese cat named Pita. For pain in the a$$. She was a loyal, cross eyed cat that love Doritos and french fries. Eventually she got pregnant and the day she delivered; she came into my room, jumped on my bed and sat on my chest meowing. My mom said, "She picked you, you're staying home from school." (Cool) I was maybe 13 years old.
So I took an old pine hope chest put it on its side and lined it with old cabbage patch kids sheets. Around 2pm she started giving birth. I watched her pushed out four kittens and one was still born. Then she decided the living room was no place to raise her kittens and within days she brought them into my room and put them under my bed. I have no idea why she picked me or my bedroom but it was a cool experience.
A ginger cat called Gus. We had him as a kitten, and our neighbour had his brother. I was two, so it would hve been in 1974. He died at Easter 1987. He was a lovely, friendly cat.
My first pet was a Squirrel monkey named Bosco, we had him for 5 years til he died from a unknown cause. They would be hard to find as a pet today.
My first pet was a standard golden hamster named Whitey, because I loved to tickle his white belly. I remember the day I got him and the day he died.
Two ducks (Mallards) - named Chuck and Diana. Correction: two ducks with periods of up to 10 ducks, as Chuck and Di were rather "friendly" with each other!
Mine was a dog - a German Shepherd named "Laddie"....and somewhere shortly there after, we had crow that sort of became a pet. He would come and sit on my dad's shoulder and let us feed him. I was rally little at the time but it's still a cool memory for me.
We always had cats, a pig, ducks, chickens and a cow....but when we moved to town it would guinea pigs...two males. One was black, named Sooty and the other was an albino, named Alby (my brothers). We got a puppy later on who lived for 17 years, as did the next dog.
A pop-belly pig. Her name was sweet sally. She loved my mother and me, but despised males. She hated my dad and my brother, which might be one of the reasons she was one of my favorite pets that we had. After about 4 years of us having her and about 20 babies later (which we gave away) she was killed. Not by any of us though. We came home one day and went to go feed her and she had been shot in the head. From then on we only got animals that could be kept in the house. - I do want another one, but I dont think my husband likes the idea to much. Lol
We had several family pets--mainly dogs and a bunny but my first 'own' pet is my current pets... two budgies named Georgie and Frankie.
My first "pets" were my dad's Blue Tick Coon hounds and my job was to feed them. I was terrified of them and used a stick to push the food dishes to them (he kept them chained.) My first pet of my very own (at about age 10) was my Cocker Spaniel Rusty and I've owned at least one dog (and sometimes more) ever since.
I've had dogs from the day I was born, but I guess the first pet that I actually "owned" - looked after myself etc, was a rabbit called Bugsy. I was about 8 and was devastated when he died.
My first pet was a blue parakeet, I picked him out right after he was born. The guy hand raised him before I got him. I wanted a dog but could not have one in the apartment. I played with that bird like he was a dog. He fetched and all
My first pet was a dachshund named Blacky. I loved that dog and remember him being like a best friend to me. My love of dogs comes from having him.
My first pet was a cat named Daisy......she was a calico. I had to give her up though...sniff.....
I've had pets since I was born, but the first pet that I brought myself is a Guinea Pig named Muffin. I've only had her since October.
i just realized..this is a "i forgot my password" question....just sayin' ...or i should say the name of your first/fav pet...i can't remember
This would make a cute children's book. I could illustrate the pictures.
