Question of the day.

Hi people. πŸ™‚

Here’s my question for you:

What was the name of your first pet?

My answer:

Hm… It’s kinda difficult to think what my first pet actually was. As I’ve written some time earlier this year, my whole life we’ve always had lots of animals around. I guess there never was a time that we wouldn’t have aquarium fishes for example, though those have never had names. The first dog I remember we had when I was a very little child was called UgryΕΊ (which means Bite), he was a rotweiler and was really protective of us but not really quite as aggressive as his name would suggest, not as far as I know. At the same time we also had two other dogs that were theoretically my uncle’s, one was named Mona, and the other was Lisa, and they were both mad and scary and everyone was scared of them. But I didn’t have any special bond with UgryΕΊ,, even though I liked him, and of course definitely not with Mona and Lisa. The first dog we had that I actually really had some bond with was Figa (Fig), but I also don’t know if I’d call her specifically my pet. She lived on the backyard, where my immediate family, as well as my grandparents and Mum’s sisters with her families lived, so Figa was all of our families’ dog, and at that time I was mostly at the boarding school so didn’t hang out with her very very much. The first pet that lived with us in the house was Kiki – he was a mixed-bred cat whom our grandma got from one of her clients who couldn’t keep him anymore, so my Mum took him. Kiki was a lovely and loyal cat, but I don’t even remember much of him, other than he liked to sleep at my Dad’s feet, even though my Dad hated him, and that he was very much afraid of the outside world, even looking out of the window was scary for him, and that I closed him on the terrace for the whole night and there was snow there, it wasn’t on purpose of course. πŸ˜€ I can also remember Zofijka dancing around the kitchen with Kiki in her arms, holding him by the neck. πŸ˜€ And that would be about everything. He was nice, but I wasn’t bonded with him at all, and was mostly at school when he was with us. So, my first proper pet, that I can call mine, even though there have been pets in my life all the time, is Misha. And I am so very happy I have him. πŸ™‚

How about your first pet? πŸ™‚

  1. Wow, you’ve had lots of happy pets!!

    My parents had a springer spaniel in the family before I was born. His name was Allister, and he was a very nice doggie. I have this one random memory of being afraid to go down the slide in the backyard because he was at the bottom of it, and I felt intimidated; but it was just my overblown imagination that thought he posed any threat, because he was a very sweet doggie. He lived until I was six years old. A great friend indeed!
