Free Pets

Very often, the organic vegetables that mummy buys come with "free gifts" inside and these gifts come in the form of caterpillars and snails. They are usually put into ventilated boxes and given to me as "pets".

These free "pets" can stay alive in the refrigerator for a week or more but once they are out, they usually last only a day or two although they are given food, water and shelter.


Meet Turdy the snail (name given by me)

I love to play with it but dare not touch it hehe.

Hello, how are you? (talking to Turdy)


Turdy trying to escape through the tiny hole...

As expected, Turdy died two days later.

Previously we also had a few caterpillars. Among them was Salty (also named by me).

Big, fat Salty the caterpillar and an unnamed baby

Salty too died after a day and our hope to see it turn into a butterfly or something was dashed yet again :(

Ok, ok... I DID have a real pet some time back. It's here.

  6. Sheoh Yan: Those fishes have gone to "fish heaven" long ago ler... they also lasted a few weeks only. I think about a month. Sad la, that's why I don't want to buy any more pets. Free ones nevermind :p
