For a long time now we have been pet free. Since our last cat Spook (who I only got because I felt bad that the kids had no pet for show and tell pet day) the terror disappeared. My husband wants a dog and for a while now I have deterred the idea because who would end up looking after it and cleaning up its poo? ME. Plus our yard is not secure for a dog so that has stopped that (for now).
Some friends of ours who recently moved into the area and acquired a bit of land, and a lot of new animals felt their pet rabbit was getting a bit neglected and offered him to us, and I jumped at the chance to have a small, quiet, cuddly pet that is easy to take care of, and the kids have on their chore chart feeding and taking care of him, so here he is meet Milo.
