Mr Cicak

As kids, Muks and I kept many pets. We had white mice (we refused to call them rats), guinea pigs, fishes, squirrels, hamsters, dogs and budgerigars. Our favourite was Big Steve, a female white mouse with an odd habit. She loved licking people, just like a little dog – her tiny tongue went slurp, slurp, slurp. She licked my mom on the elbow once, and boy did she scream bloody murder.

Sadly, due to my work, I haven’t kept pets in ages (discounting my two human pets on Facebook – Lils and Elaine). I think the deprivation is getting to me because these days I have taken to chatting with a house lizard, who hangs out on top of the Ikea lamp in the living room.

“Hey, how was your day?”

“Cikcikcikcik.”

“That bad huh? Did you catch many insects today?”

Cikcik.”

“Good good. Remember to catch more mossies. Thanks.”

“Cik.”

I need help. I think I’ll go out this weekend to look for some fishes.

  3. This Lils, is she hot? Should I be jealous?

  4. I do miss Big Steve. Still my favourite pet. 🙂

    Do they sell biorbs in Malaysia? It is a complete bowlfish-shaped aquarium that requires only 1 change of water every 2 months. My life saver.
