    By the way... quite new with cats. Any secret technique for avoiding my cat splashing water everywhere every morning and every time he is bored. Electrified tank? Laser barriers?

    Haha best technique is keep the cat bussy?.. But never use spray bottles or such to shoot at them from a distance, this is often adviced by people who don't know they shouldn't. Cat's have personalety and this is something you need to judge for your own.. Some cats can take a lot others are traumatized rather quickly.. And a traumatized cat is what you absolutely do not want, if they go into protest and start peeing, you have a major problem. Also if a cat can't go outside it gets boored quicky. Just try to catch it red handed and push it away every time it does it. Mean time speaking their language helps, that's what they understand, Growl and his sounds are warnings and signs of anger when they communicate with eachother or with you.. If i catch mine scratching the furniture i use words with R in a growling fashion and or Hissss like they do. Mine understand it and immidately back off.. :) That's also why names with an R in it are very effective, also for dogs, they also growl.. Especialy if you use your throath to get the R out sounds more agressive.

    But we have such a saying.. "When the cats out the mice dance on the table".. That's what the cat does when you are out..

    These are my newest pets.
    Land hermit crabs.
    Live in a storage tote with 80/20 mix or coco fibre and vermiculite.
    Fed on zoo med hermit mix pellets. Fresh fruits. Cuttings from the tank. Duckweed etc. I also mix in some shrimp pellets and spirulina.
    Fresh room temp declorinated water everyday.
    And a small bowl of salted RO.
    So comical to watch after dusk, scampering about. [​IMG][​IMG][​IMG][​IMG]

    Our temporary puppy - when she grows up she's going to be a Hearing Dog, but for now she's just enjoying hanging out with the fish.

    TBH they dont, they do have an initial curiousity when first handled and feel you out.
    From experience it is better to purchase them from a shop that specialises in exotics, spiders, snakes, lizards, insects etc. I got these from TheSpiderShop. Been using them a while now, and not had any issues with them.

    Not my pet, probably no pet at all.. But definitively a Wabi Turtle.. If you happen to have a turtle this is a nice inspiration for the yogurt Trick.. :lol:

    One working cocker spaniel who is 10 years old:

    [​IMG]

    In January 2018 she suffered three slipped discs and our insurance only covered so much, so we spent £5,000 to get her a good MRI scan and operation with the Animal Welfare Trust in Kennet. After several weeks of cage rest she was as good as new and able to run. Last month it appears that more discs further down in her back are pressing on her spinal cord :( She's back on cage rest.

    About three years ago I was sat watching the TV and my wife :nailbiting: (AKA management) came back home with a Cavachon puppy, which was a total shock to me :wideyed:

    He now looks like:

    and last but not least our 13 year old cat:
