We had a pot bellied pig once.  Did you know they can swim?  They just can't climb the stairs to get out of the pool...

I had a pet hamburger once. It was on a plate in the fridge and I had forgotten it was there. After a while it began growing green sprouts and little patches all over it. It began to resemble a small island in the Pacific. The other foods considered it a god of some kind. I would talk to it, imitating Dr. Moreau. Later the green died and it began to look like a small chunk of volcanic ash. I gave it a decent burial....

Michael! your pet was related to the ones my mom had in her fridge! a jar of 10 year old pickles and mustard that was probably from 1956. (I used to know a joke about mustard gas)

Don't even get me started about pets in refrigerators because it will lead to a story of the time we had a legal "exhibit" in the fridge...

just grinning around in the files tonight
and look what I found, pipsters with strange pets
and I'm missing the fun times with a naughty little porch puppy

I confess - I knew Edgar well.  Matter of fact, I have to plead guilty to giving him to Ron in the first place.

Here's the 90% true story of "Poe Edgar"...

As for my personal pets...

We have flying squirrels in the rafters of my daughter's house.

I had a turtle named "Frog"

I had a cat named "Monkey"

I had a pet crow named "Blackie"

I had a largemouth bass named "Hiram J"

I've yet to keep a firefly alive...

Let me see, my brother and I used to catch and keep scorpians, kangaroo rats and tarantulas. Those fish aquariams are good for something. Oh, and we each had a tortoise.

If tears could build a stairway and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.

Unusual pets? Hrm...younger brother.  He grew up though.  Should've used Chinese style bindings.  But then, I was my older brother's unusual pet.  And my baby sister had 3 brothers as unusual pets.  Still does.  Wish I could find where she hid that transmittor...
