It's messy & hard work to put an insect in a pot?

Maybe you're tired & cranky

It is better in a pot than in a bugwidge.

As I alighted on this thread, I had the sinking feeling its another one of those hamwitch ones that goes on for 15 pages and achieves naught. Enjoy your day y'all.....

Sparklingbrook Thu 25-Jul-13 07:22:19

What sort of bug is it?

rosepettel Thu 25-Jul-13 07:23:06

PseudoBadger Thu 25-Jul-13 07:23:30

Is she allowed a quiet pet?

TantrumsAndBalloons Thu 25-Jul-13 07:23:58

Well. I don't understand the pets at home reference tbh.

But, bugs in a pot?

Well depends what type of bug I suppose?

Sparklingbrook Thu 25-Jul-13 07:24:33

Doesn't sound that messy and hard work. I don't imagine the bug is happy though. Poor bug. sad Has it got food and water?

AKissIsNotAContract Thu 25-Jul-13 07:24:53

Aloud bug? I would have thought bugs were pretty quiet.

rosepettel Thu 25-Jul-13 07:26:04

no shes not aloud pets in the home
i cant look after a pet i dont even know what they feed with and how to care about the bug im busy i dont need a pet to look after and clean up

Sparklingbrook Thu 25-Jul-13 07:26:12

I am worried the bug may be deceased.

rosepettel Thu 25-Jul-13 07:28:03

sparklingbrook it looks fine no spots its the colour its ment to be and its legs move

Sparklingbrook Thu 25-Jul-13 07:29:05

I think it may be depressed and best that you release it......

BringBackBod Thu 25-Jul-13 07:29:27

I would just set the bug free, it'll be easier that way.

Montybojangles Thu 25-Jul-13 07:29:34

Are you saying she is not allowed any pet at all? Or just the bug?

Pets are good for children, teaches them some responsibility and caring.

Are you in the uk? If you describe the bug maybe we can identify it and tell you what it might eat.

It might be a bit cruel though if it's a flying insect and it's confined to a little pot. I also imagine it would get pretty hot in a pot in this weather.

malcolmtuckersmums it wasn't really funny the first time either smile

<wishes there was a hide poster option>

Don't let her put bugs in pots because it's cruel to bugs.

The bug will not have made your DD poorly.
