Enough of the Hamster ... what about a bit of fame for one of the many other members of our huge pet menagerie?
Well, as mentioned much earlier (follow that second link!), we do have a rather large collection of stick insects :-)
They reside in a big plastic tank in the kitchen ... problem is, they do occasionally manage to escape - bit like the damned Hamster actually :-((
Here's the flat-favourite (that's flat, as in house, and not squashed!) - called Gordon - during a brief spell of freedom in our back garden. I'm pleased to report that he is now safely returned to said-tank and enjoying all the luxuries of friendly captivity with numerous stick-insect colleagues :-))
