My Wild Ones – Rambling in the brambles…

We have a little boy who likes animals. Our current menagerie include a hamster, a giant snail and now some stickinsects called Twig and Sticky (original, I know!) The stickinsects like fresh leaves. Bramble leaves to be precise. This means that three times a week you will find me rambling about our local copse, armed with gardening gloves, sharp scissors and a small boy very firmly directing operations. Come wind or shine, the stickinects must eat, so bramble hunting we go…

I don’t mind too much, and little boys need fresh air and lots of exercise too so it’s all good.

You can see how he’s enjoying learning to handle his new pets here

    Would love to have more pets, but we don’t have much space! Though to be fair, I think we can manage with stick insects 😉 We only have a dog, used to have cat, but she left us 😉 #animaltales

  2. Grace sounds very similar to your boy – although we have allowed her the little live pet toys in this house rather than anything real! Except our cat, Gypsy, of course! #AnimalTales

  5. You certainly have some unusual pets! It must be good to have a reason to get outside regularly though – I admit I am sometimes lacking in motivation! #mywildones

  6. I did wonder what stick insects ate – now I know. So how long do they live for? #AnimalTales
