My pets



Ok, so I don't really have pets. I had a hamster back in 1999 called Nibbles. He died on Christmas Eve after living a good couple of years. Thanks, Nibbles! Then we got some fish around 2003 but they all died within a couple of weeks. Other than that, I've been completely pet-free all my life. 

However, I do have Fluffy. This will sound insane coming from a 25 year old woman, but my cuddly pig is my pet. I've had him since I was 9 and he's slept in bed with me practically every night. He's been on holiday with me, he was there to cuddle when I went through teenage break-ups and now he's part of my family. A couple of years ago, we put a bell around his neck and it gave him a little voice, of sorts. It's very sweet to hear him jingling away when he gets caught up in the bed covers. 

In 2011, I was given George. He instantly became Fluffy's little brother. We found a smaller bell for him which has a higher pitched jingle and he has joined our little family.

Although they might not move around and interact like real pets, they're very low-maintenance. Not to mention that they're not going to run away or do a Nibbles! 

Surely we all have a cuddly toy that we love, right?

    1. Aaw that's so cute! I couldn't take Fluffy to Florida with me (I didn't have George then) because I was so terrified I'd lose him! I had to leave him at home with Rich looking after him!

  2. I have a few cuddly toys that I like to cuddle from time to time, everyone does! If they say that they don't, then they're lying :)
    Those two are so cute!

  3. Aw that's so cute! I have my dog and I'm a total fish lady. Was it just normal gold fish you had?

    1. I'm not sure what they were. They were little fish and black with orange bits.

  4. This is adorable - I love the bells! "Pull a Nibbles" had me cracking up!

    I have had a stuffed Labrador since I was four, named Blackie (very original naming as he's black) who ends up wherever he fits through moving.

  5. Other than my gremlins, I have a stuffed toy collection. My husband hates it, but he puts up with it. I also sleep with one every night!

  9. This isn't insane at all. At 25, I have a cuddly bear that was my mother's, however, he lives at the bottom of my bed. My collection of toys is still around though, and I've just been given a Paddington Bear! :)

  11. I was so happy when I read this on your about page and I had to click on it straight away!!! My husband thinks I am slightly crazy but I have my teddy since I was a baby and he comes everywhere with me! He is my favourite thing in the world and I would say he is most definitely like a pet. He has his own bed and I talk to him and any new teddy I get immediately has to be introduced! :p You are awesome!!!!! :)
