I want a pet 😳

3rd born, aged 7 years

She wrapped her little arms around me and whispered “I would like a pet”

“We already have pets, we have a dog and a cat”

“Yes but Peppa belongs to you and Kiera belongs to Daddy.  I want my very own pet, just for me”

“What do you have in mind” I asked chuckling

“A little furry thing that lives in a cage, that I can hold and play with”

“I think it’s called a Giblet” 😄

Please note – This is not a Giblet – not appropriate to post photo of our Giblet as he has since died!

  1. It is the same here, only that it is me, wrapping my arms around husband, whispering “…I really really neeeeeeeed a “wau-wau” (dog). A little french bulldog…just for my own…”
    And he replies, “we already have your stupid cat which costs way too much money…”

  2. My 7-year-old niece ran a compelling, but ultimately fruitless, campaign for a dog over the holidays. My poor sister was almost undone by her daughter’s relentlessness. I think what saved the day was when good old auntie offered to let said niece come over and clean up after and care for my dog for a week; niece suddenly had a LOT of other things to do. I love kids!

  3. its not my child that does this, its my partner, with the words. I want a ferret. We have two cats (who bring in way to much wildlife) a dog and a toddler (who lets face it is a toddler thus feral) why would I want an animal, that needs walking like the dog, hunts like the cats and stinks like the toddler
