Show us your pets

This morning I didn’t even get so far as brewing my coffee.

Zhukov patiently awaiting me throwing the scrap of a busted football he’s deposited in the foreground.

You’d think it a relief to have a pet that doesn’t demand dawn to dusk throwing.

Unless it’s one with designs on your (smoked salmon) breakfast.

He looks like he’s peeing on your blanket.

Hopefully he’s got a few more years before he’s reduced to that.

Not my pet. Discovered this recently. Meet Leo the Lobster if you haven’t seen this before.

I’ve kept up with watching all the Leon the Lobster episodes :lobster:
It’s fascinating, and very well narrated by Brady Brandwood :+1:

@Debs so glad you enjoy Leo’s videos. I found them very sad initially with his claws bounded by rubber bands leaving deep indentations in his claws and marks that remained after a year. But also fascinating to see him molt and transform into a larger, darker amazing lobster later. :blush:

Yes, the picture in my above post, shows Leon at an early period after his release from the rubber bands, and the marks they left clearly visible on his claws.

To my mind they may make some folk an interesting ‘captive creature’ kind of pet but they certainly don’t make a good replacement for a cuddly cat or dog :grimacing:

“Oh, hi, it’s you. You’re back from your Jolly. Off in your swanky hotel in some exotic foreign clime? While I’ve been stuck in this here prison.

By the way, my bowl is empty.”

It’s me that’s stuck in a cage , I’ve been quarantined with COVID and have made the mistake of getting into the government system , I don’t know what will happen .

There are differing rules for those who’ve been inoculated , sadly the NHS has my email address , but my doctor does not , as a result I cannot access my COVID Pass

Ian, can you not get your covid pass directly from the NHS app? I was under the impression that the surgery would automatically update some master database every time you were stabbed.

On the way to Valley of Rocks, via the feral goats and fungi.

My surgery does not have my email address , when I asked the NHS for the CV19 pass, it proudly asked me for the address at my surgery and announced it was locking me out for two days

I should say that in the last fifteen years, I ‘ve had one tube of cream and a packet of Buscopan .

You’ve no idea the hoops I went through last night to get my NHS number
