    You both do amazing things with the fostering, i could never do it, cos I would get too attached. :(

    I loved your foster Lily - Lou, just a shame we wasnt in the place to get another dog at the time, but we have got a rescue now :)

    If I didn't live with my mum, I'd have a zoo! At the moment I have a cat and a dog (family pets) and I have 6 mice and my brother has a dwarf hamster. Did have 12 mice at one point, in 3 different cages (2 cages were for my dissertation), and also had a syrian hamster in a larger cage. So my uni house was a bit of a zoo with my housemates rats and dogs lol We were on animal behaviour degrees so kind of had an excuse for having them lol

    So many animals :eek: Would love some reptiles especially beardies, they are so adorable :D Couldn't have tarantulas though, scared of spiders >_< Still think they're pretty and will stay in the same room (college had 2 chilean rose's and a red knee). No way am I touching one though lol! Cobalt blues are pretty but aren't they really aggressive?

    :D yes it certainly does take up a fair amount of time with cleaning and feeding and so forth, but I love it, its so worth while and I just couldn't turn away a needy critter.

    You'd be surprised actually I use to see a spider in the bath and absolutely freak out, then someone asked if we'd take her chilean rose in and I was like no I can't do this, the chilean rose turned up two days later and I just loved her lol
    yeap you are quite right Colbalt blues are very very aggressive and certainly aren't for a beginner tarantula keeper.
