    Although the end result might be cute, it's for the best they don't.

    Such animals are 'created' by severe inbreeding which results in unspeakable suffering - animals can be born deformed or disabled, many breeders cull animals that do not meet their set criteria and even the supposedly-desired end results often suffer from problems such as blindness, deafness, compromised immune systems, deformities, breathing difficulties, muscle/joint/bone weaknesses, sterility, behavioural issues....and the list goes on...

    You really don't have to look far to find research outlining the cruelty behind inbreeding.

    ^ Funny, my girlfriend and I were JUST discussing that yesterday, KoolKat.

    It's terrible that people interbreed dogs for the "fun factor"

    So many people just buy dogs because it's "flashy" or "hip". They treat a pet as if it was a designer handbag (and often put them into one).

    This is our Mane Coon, simply named Kitty. She's absolute royalty

    The two have such different personalities, the dynamics in the house are quite interesting

    Unfortunately I don't have any pictures, but many years ago when I was at Primary School I used to own Stick Insects. I even sold a load at the school fete XD

    I used to feed them both Ivy and Stinging Nettles, but the Stick Insects would sometimes catch themselves in the Nettles and would end up killing themselves. So I had to resort to just Ivy, but eventually I was running low on the stuff so I just released them all out into the wild in the garden where the last remaining Ivy was.

    Turns out doing that is illegal since they're a foreign insect, but I highly doubt they survived the Winter and wreaked havoc over the entire country


    My sister used to own Guinea Pigs, they've all long gone now though. It was quite amusing though, we got two, ended up with three as one was unknowingly pregnant.
    It was my mum that found the third, she didn't know how on earth it got in the hutch and looked over our next-door neighbours fence. Thinking it jumped over and got in, despite the fact they don't even own Guinea Pigs

    Sadly the three eventually died, and a neighbour further down the road gave us an extra Guinea Pig they had. Coincidently she was unknowingly pregnant, but this time with two, but eventually they all went.

    We're not getting any more pets now, but sometime in the future I hope to get a kitten
    I adore cats, especially in their kitten form XD

    I've never heard of someone owning stick insects. Quite interesting, Oliver.

    My husband used to keep stick insects. If you ever get any again, it's worth remembering that they can also eat privet hedge leaves which is quite handy as that stuff is everywhere.
