She wanted me to release it into the wild. Um, no. I was afraid it might be a termite or something. (Plus, it was totally grossing me out.)
If we had every animal that we've asked Doug to let us bring home, we would own (at least):
A dozen cats
A few dogs
A bird or two
Several cages of rodents - mice, hamsters, guinea pigs, etc.
A vegetarian python
A large tortoise
A sugar glider
That's not even addressing the more exotic creatures we'd love to own. Like a koala.
For now, we content ourselves by visiting Cute Overload as often as possible.
