I raise dust bunnies only, since my pet turtle, Lloyd, died when I was 8.

Dust bunnies are a joke, Kimmie. Sometimes balls of dust collect under heavy pieces of furniture that we don't clean under every day. They're nicknamed 'Dust Bunnies'. We all get them at one time or another. :D

Un « dust bunny » c'est une petite boule de poussière. On en trouve généralement sous les meubles.

I can see you love animals too, Chrose. I've had Eve, a female cat who was extremely verbal, Timothy, a large orange cat, Noel, a Cocker who was born on christmas eve and died of cancer, Wookie, a gorgeous cat that weighed 25 lbs and had a Cheshire cat smile, Thomas and Tammy, brother and sister kittens...and now, Snoopy and Suzanne, also brother and sister. Priscilla, a beautiful and very sassy cat, and Farrah, a ferret. I've been so lucky that most of my pets died of old age. Wookie was killed by a stray dog at age 13, and my bunny, Baby, jumped over our balconey in terror when a basketball landed on the balconey where he was sunning. Oh, and I've raised several birds who fell out of nests and lived in an artificial tree in my living room and rode around on my shoulder. It's hard to get a wild bird to leave you once you've raised and tamed it :) Oh, don't let me forget Orphan Annie. She was a very ugly gray cat who was abandoned by an owner who moved. She wandered into our house soaked from a rain storm on evening. I leaped to the top of the couch because I thought she was a rat. After a good drying and a few good meals she looked a lot better. I bought her a pink pearl collar and that cat actually preened as if she knew she was beautiful. Animals have a lot of emotion just like people :) Then there was the winter we had several 14 degree nights and my sister and I went around collecting all the strays in the neighborhood. By morning I didn't have a lamp left that was in one piece. LOL! Dogs and cats who have never met mean trouble :)

How could I forget Amanda and Jason? They were a pair of parakeets we had years ago. We has a cage that had a handle on top. I put it on our balconey so the birds could sing with the neighboring wild birds. One of my kids used the handle to try to pick up the cage and move it and the whole top came off. Amanda and Jason were found sitting on a neighbors trash can two blocks away. Our school crossing guard brought them home :) At work, I have a nest with five little blue eggs inside our air conditioner :) How cute is that? I'd personally love to have a big black crow for a pet, but not caged. I love crows. :D

But the dust bunny thing was so cute, Kimmie :) I'll bet a lot of people thought it was. I had an adorable little friend from France when I was growing up. It was always so much fun teaching each other the ways of our cultures.

It sounds as if you are doing very well with the English language. French is a beautiful language.

Speaking of pets, a couple of days ago a squirrel got into the ceiling of our guest room at work. I got the maintenance man to move a ceiling tile and put a live trap inside the space of the ceiling, then put the tile back in place. The next morning I asked the housekeeper if she'd heard anything in the guest room. She said she was sure the squirrel wasn't in the trap because it was too quiet. I got a ladder and climbed up to the top and moved the ceiling tile over. Sure enough, this adorable little creature was staring back at me from the trap, so scared that his/her little lips were trembling. I got a cup of water with a straw and fed it four straws of water. It was so thirsty! In between gulps of water it would lunge at the cage and give me all kinds of sass :) I baby talked it and threw a bunch of peanuts into the cage, then phoned the maintenance man to come and get the cage out of the ceiling. The squirrel was a baby! It was so little and cute. When we set it free another squirrel the same size came running up to it, (probably a sibling) and sniffed it all over, as if checking to see if it was alright. Then they leapt into the air and started playing joyfully. They never did run from us. They stayed only a few feet from the kitchen door all day. It's been quite a year at work now that I think about it. I got another squirrel from the hallway into a box and set it free, caught two bats and set them free, and a bird that I'd never seen before and set it free. :D

I too only have dust bunnies, which I revel in killing on a regular basis.
