[QUOTE=aeeeerse;43473286]this actually shows facepunchers are compassionate beings. not robots made by skynet. good show![/QUOTE] But we are robots created by Skynet, and this is Skynet proving it's not a evil AI intent on killing beings lesser than it.
He's escaped the tub again, crawling around on the side of it. I'm gonna put it on my windowsill so he feels at home and leave the roof open so he's able to get food and enjoy the foliage I put in there. [editline]9th January 2014[/editline] He seems to like his portrait [img]https://scontent-b-lhr.xx.fbcdn.net/hphotos-frc3/1544946_10152313319047018_245979637_n.jpg[/img]
i found a green june beetle and kept it as a pet when i was 6. :v: it was shiny and neon green colored so i thought it looked really cool. i gave it food and stuff, but unfortunately it didn't live long.
He seems pretty happy.
Goddamn escape artists.
I like it!

I like this. You are a wonderful person. I hope you have a happy life forever.
[QUOTE=Apollo;43479454]I like this. You are a wonderful person. I hope you have a happy life forever.[/QUOTE] Wow, thank you! I am a happy person, to tell you the truth I wasn't for the majority of my life but last summer I discovered what true happiness is and I'm pursuing a path which will nurture that. I can only wish the same (or even, better) for yourself :) [editline]10th January 2014[/editline] [QUOTE=luck_or_loss;43478033][img]https://24.media.tumblr.com/8f3420b42ab658e587eb7d05333acd02/tumblr_mytvqruZE81rz1st5o1_r3_400.gif[/img][/QUOTE] Imagine being so tiny that a drop of water fucks up your day
Does it pay rent or do chores?
Love is the best payment. Apparently they're pro at keeping away pests so I'm sure he'd help with that. He's been out the tub since I last posted, he crawled along this desk lamp thing so I put the lamp onto of the tub hoping it'd make him go back in. I checked on him about 20 minutes ago and again just now, I've got a feeling he might have his leg somehow stuck in a gap because he's a bit wriggly but hasn't actually moved. I'm going to try to nudge him off gently with some paper but I'm worried about harming him [editline]10th January 2014[/editline] plus if he flies I'll accidentally freak out, even if I'm anticipating it.
this is fucking adorable, and it makes me really want a pet again. havent had one since our dog died, a few years ago :( really nice of you to do this, im feeling all :3y and fuzzy <3
[QUOTE=Oicani Gonzales;43480346]this is fucking adorable, and it makes me really want a pet again. havent had one since our dog died, a few years ago :( really nice of you to do this, im feeling all :3y and fuzzy <3[/QUOTE] aw man, I have 4 dogs at the moment and the eldest is my soon to be 11 year old golden retriever who doesn't seem to know she's old. I'll be gutted when she's gone. One of my other dogs had puppies about 2 years ago, one of the pups had a heart condition and was given a couple of years at best (I think I made a thread about it at the time), we looked after him but unfortunately he had to be put down after a couple of months because he'd be in too much pain after walking a few steps and couldn't do anything except be cuddled and fed. It hurt a lot to see him go but I suppose it was for the best Bert update: I gave him a nudge and he's off for a walk again, I have no idea why he was sat there so long. I want to get him back in the tub before I go to bed but he's being stubborn again
I used to keep pet caterpillars in a jar when I was little... I had one named "Speedy". Then he disappeared one day and I cried for an hour. I don't remember keeping any after that.
I nudged him off the light and back in the tub, he kind of fell and I was concerned for a moment but he waddled off under the pinecone so he must be okay. I've pushed his roof in so theres so gaps he can get through while I'm asleep/at work. if he finds a way out he's officially SuperBert
The only pet I've had of the buggy variety are a few spiders that currently live in my flat. They are actually quite old, they don't overpopulate (as far as I know...) and they keep my living space completely free of other annoying bugs. I've only been bitten by one of them once, and it was completely my fault. I hopped into bed sort of late and about 5 minutes later got a pinch and rolled out of bed to find a rather large, squashed spider. He was guarding my bed from dangerous, murderous invaders. And all I did was squish him in return. We never quarreled, we never competed. They inhabited the corners of the ceilings and protected me from dangerous insects, and I provided them a safe haven. At least for most of them. [img]http://fi.somethingawful.com/images/smilies/frown.gif[/img]
I cant remember the last time I found a ladybug. I need to look down more.
A ladybug flew up my nose once. Made me choke. LadyCUNTS.

Why would you have a pet ladybug? They're loner insects. The boring kind. Though I guess it'd be sometimes cool to look at occasionally. OP. I would suggest getting yourself an (wingless) ant queen. Wingless antqueens are pregnant for the rest of their lives (they only need to mate once and they can basically after that have infinite ant babies). The queens can live up to 30 years. Ants are rad. The smartest insect. You can visually tell when a single ant is happy or stressed. I have a picture somewhere of a huge-ass ant battle going on in the middle of a sidewalk that I took last summer between two colonies of both sides of it. I sorta just sat there and roleplayed in my head a bit that the two ant colonies have been at it for years and that they both have their own cultures and reasons for the wars they engaged in. :v: I have a queen of my own actually. She has 13 eggs and 3 workers. When I first caught her she was by herself. Ants are also very cheap (basically free) to take care of. I'd make a thread dedicated to keeping ant colonies and about my own. But it's still in its infancy, and colonies slow down and eggs dont hatch in the winter due to hibernation. Ironically, Feeding ladybugs to ants is a bad idea. Ladybugs have a scent that makes ants go crazy in fear. Even a dead one. [editline]10th January 2014[/editline] Sorry about the minor derail. Do some research OP! See what ladybugs eat. You would be surprised that very little insects eat leaves and grass as food.
Best feel-good thread of 2014 so far.
I'd tell you to convert it to Communism but it's already a comrade.
How do you know it's Bert? What if it's Bertha?
He bertter find out
Back when I used to have my own apartment, there were 3 spiders that used to live with me. they'd kill the bugs and I absolutely loved them. I knew the one in the shower because he was always there. I feel bad for him, seeing me naked and all.

[QUOTE=geel9;43482277]A ladybug flew up my nose once. Made me choke. LadyCUNTS.[/QUOTE] Have to agree with you there, my window in spring was open a crack, and like 100 fucking ladybugs wriggled their way through, luckily I was able to vacuum them up and dump em outside. On the topic of handy bugs I have a spider that made a web above my sink, hes hand because he gets all the fruit flies.
Ladybugs are awesome, one time there were a bunch of aphids infesting my weed plants, got a couple of these guys and the problem was basically taken care of overnight.
