Wherever we go, whatever we do, my 3 little munchkins are just drawn to animals. Big, small, fury, slimy, scaly it really doesn't matter. It's wonderful to watch and yet sometimes hard at the same time.
Take Stooge and the bird pictured above. He discovered this bird that had fallen out of it's nest and been left for dead. He found it, carried it everywhere and swore he would care for it till it's mum came back. In less than 1 hour he got so attached to this one little bird. It broke my heart and his to leave it behind. But he did it, and he has now pledged to save all his money to buy his own little bird and I know that that bird will be bought one day and he will cherish it for as long as it lives.
Did you have a pet growing up? What did you save for when you were younger?
