    ..do you ever wonder how you manage to share any genes with your family at all, or if you are in fact adopted??:confused:
    Cant believe how anti pets my lot are.:( On finding out I had bought a Corn snake they were pretty much grossed out. 'why did you want a snake', 'I dont know why you have so many pets', 'your brother isnt like this is he??', "wonder why you arent more like him??'.
    ARRGGHHH!!
    I like all animals and spent a vast amount of time as a kid hunting lizards and slow worms and catching sticklebacks and insects, you think that would of been a clue!:rolleyes:Ok, so I didnt have any pets....but I wasnt allowed any.
    I love my pets and enjoy looking after them and frankly dont understand someone who wants to live a sterile life with no pets in it.:nonod:

    At least I get the last laugh... I pointed out that no, Im not like my brother. I have a decent job, my own house and am not still living with my parents at the age of 40, thank you very much!!!LOL:D

    Luckily my family are all pet lovers, although my sil doesn't understand the concept of having pets :blink:

    I don't know how I have the same genes as my father mind, but then that's a whole different thread...

    My family have had to like pets as Ive been bringing waifs and strays home since I was ickle :D

    OHs family are really weird about animals but Tony loves them and they love him thankfully, he is all for me having my pets (within reason) and hopefully fostering :thumbup:
    His family are always telling me how dirty animals are etc, but they are those kinda people who are never ever wrong so I tend to avoid them as i can never keep my mouth shut :eek:
