Bringing Our Pets With Us

I originally bought this Zooby kitty for a friend , but hit "Purchase" instead of buying it as a gift in SLEx. So now I have a sweet little B&W kitty of my own!. She reminded me of my RL B&W kitty I had and named her "Nefi" after her. I rezzed her at the gallery and Gryffin enjoyed her following him all over the Caledon Northern sims while I stepped away. It made me wonder how many of us have our former, much-loved pets here in SL, and it seems I'm not alone...Here is Dia's Leonidas, after her childhood goldfish Leonidas...
And Kheph's Nikky, after his favorite rat Nicodemus. I believe it's nice having pets in SL, and it feels good in a way to give them the familiarity of ones we once loved and have lost...

Actully we got Leo when I was in my mid 20s. If it wasn't named already, I'd call him The Highlander.. it appeared to live forever.

Of course, eventually, it didn't. But it was fun to have around and have to stress about it. Hehehe.

I don't what made me think he was your childhood fishie, LOL! Now if we can just keep Lord from trying to eat him...

Pepper spray might be an option.. stuffing him with his wig might be another..

Haaaaa! You know he can't help himself! He thinks the fishie looks nummy!

So totally cute. :D I've not seen any Collie/Sheltie mixes out there that could be my old pet when I was a boy, Lady. So it's just me and Ingrid, Touchwood and Comus *grins*
