Our little ZOO
I am writing you a little earlier because I am going to the accounting course.
My family likes animals and the nature. We try to protect it as much as we can. As you know, we live in a house with garden, trees and flowers so I let my children have pets. We have one dog, a bobtail. She is 9 years old.
Our second dog was put to sleep last year because he was very ill and old /16 years/. We felt sorry for him. Then we have one tom-cat, two turtles and some fish in an aquarium in the children’s room. And of course, in our garden there are lots of birds and we can listen to their singing, especially in the morning.
I would like to tell you several stories about animals that have happened this summer. My son brought a little egg home in August and he unloaded it on his desk. Two days later this little egg started to move. We put it into a bottle and next morning a little brown lizard was in the bottle. We have never seen a lizard egg before. We transferred it into a small aquarium where we settled a rock and a case with grass in it. We had a problem. This little lizard did not want to eat at first. We offered it ants, grasshoppers. Nothing happened. Actually, the grasshopper was as big as the lizard. We were anxious and thought that it would be better if we let it go. Then we got an idea and we offered it some ant eggs. Our little lizard started eating. Since then it has had a robust appetite and is very spry. We put the aquarium under the lamp and our new pet can sunbathe on the rock in this way. I named it. Its name is “Picur“, in English it means: Dinky. My son takes care of it. I think it is a fun experience for my son and for me, too.
One day we were trimming the hedge in our garden when I saw a new molehill and a mole in it. My husband caught it and put it into a bucket. It screamed so much that we felt sorry for it and we let this small animal go in this part of the garden where we don’t have grass. It buried itself very quickly.
Another day my son was on his way home when he set his eyes on two kittens in the ditch next to the road. They were abandoned. He did not have the heart to have them destroyed, so he picked them up and brought them both home. We fed them with milk. They were so hungry that they ate and ate and ate... One of them had an injured eye and we named them, One Eye and Two Eye. My son was taking care of the kittens who enjoyed being petted. It was so nice to hear little kittens purr. They were grey and black striped. About a week later our kittens disappeared. We do not know why. We fed them three times a day and played with them and they had a good shelter. Maybe our dog was guilty. She could not make friends with them. We were calling them for two days but they did not come back. We have been very sad. My husband said: “It was their destiny“. Are you a great believer in destiny?
