A first attempt. Cats and more

post #1 of 23
Thread Starter 
Hey there!
I have finally got up the nerve to attempt to post some pictures here. I hope this works!

The first one will be of my beloved Chester in his favourite place, Infront of the Fridge.


Again with Mr Chester. This is the one I have beside my bed in a frame. The look: "awww mom, did you have to wake me up? hey, what's that string hanging from that thing in your hand?!?"


Shadow is my sisters cat, who is looking for some sweet sweet lovin Which is why it's blurry, she was moving her head back and forth trying to hypnotise me into a rubbin session.


Samantha is our beautiful calico. She's dad's cat.


Finally (for cats) is our newest addition, miss Lu Lu herself! LUNA!!!

So here are my "alternative" "exotic" pets!
First one is little Willow. She's a sweet and old guinea pig.


And here's a picture of one of my four snails. They're all about that big. mmm...slimy!


Ok, last picture, it's random but I'm proud of it. Some of the yellow flowers from the garden that I planted this summer in memory of my cat Natasha.


YAY! I think it worked!!! And it was easy...hahahaha...I think I have a new addiction!

Thanks! My new camera is crazy good. I guess it helps when you can just delete the ones you don't like too I really like taking close ups, I think they're so much more dramatic.

Yeah, we think luna is a blue tortie point, and we're told she's ragdoll. She definately has some pink stripes in her, and she's a lady all the way. In fact, mom's started collecting pink dishes, a pink harness and maybe even a new pink cat bed for her. She's such a girly girl!
Don't worry. Most people pass on the snails. I still think they're really cool though

*I* think the snails are awesome. But I love crazy slimey creatures. I had no idea you could keep huge ones as... pets... though.

I have to admit the colors on the shell of the snail IS striking!

Do you name your snails? if so, what are their names? How old are they? How long does it take for them to get that big?

Invertibrate actually, so would slugs

And some snail info to answer some of the questions:
No, you're not supposed to keep these snails in the states, there aren't specific laws against them in Canada, but there were some "mistakes in care" in Texas a few years back and some crops were whiped out by some bonehead releasing them. It may sound cruel but I make sure that any eggs that are laid are not alive anymore by the time they leave my door. You can't spay or neuter a snail, and they can lay up to 1000 eggs at a time (once every 2-3 weeks) so keeping them all isn't an option.
It takes about 2 years for the snails to reach full size
Yes I name them. My four are Harley, Virago, Fararri and Latigra. You can't really tell which is which though. Some people will put nailpolish on the tips of their shells to identify them. I think it's being too picky, afterall, they don't have personalities.
And for all of you who are wondering....they feel really neat on your hand...you can feel the muscles moving and them sucking on your fingertips
