  1. 4 cats, Chutney, Tobias, Raphael aka Darling & Anuschka

  2. Finnegan! Suits him….came with the name when we took him in as a rescue dog! Great little fellow!

  3. Two pet rats – Ophelia and Daisy. Ophelia is mink-roaned with a white blaze and Daisy is a dark beige self. Both of them have black eyes and are totally sweeties! Having a domesticated rattie is rather like owning a little possum. They are gentle, naughty, stash their food and are great fun to play wrestle with.

    My husband has a little tyrant of a budgie called Little Bird who bites when he tries to clean his cage and change his food.

  4. Minka, a dingo. Minka means cave. She dug caves every day. If there was a big pile of dirt she would go crazy digging, then stop and rest her nose in the dirt and sigh happily.

  5. My little dog is called Taco , because he is half Mexican !! He’s a Chihuahua cross …
    I got him from RSPCA when he was three , he is an absolute treasure …

  6. Have had lots of lovely names for my pets’ over my life.

    But I loved ‘Hollee’. She was my beautiful Welsh Pembroke Corgi, who lived to be nearly 16.
    She understood every word I said! Adored us all, as we did her, & she’s still sadly missed.

    I do really hope the ‘Rainbow Bridge’ is true, as I want to meet ALL my pets again………….
