Can we have a Mumsnet pet?

We could have a little window showing a webcam view of it on the right hand side of the site, if you can squeeze it between the adverts. It would be good for those of us who don't have pets of our own or who accidentally ate theirs.

I suggest a tank with a goldfish called Mr Fish. I would also like a miniature goat, but it would probably drown in the tank. sad

Ooh, an excellent idea! Yes, definitely.

Although we shouldn't squeeze them.

Ooh like the Blue Peter dog? grin

How about a GINea pig?

I would like an orangutan. It won't fit in the tank and it might eat the adverts. But it would have soulful eyes and look cute.

Elephant please x

If we got a fish we could dress it up as a variety of things. (Do they do fish outfits?). And at christmas we could fill the tank with plastic snow globe type snow, and for Patrick's day we could pour in Guinness, and we could light a little fire in the bottom on Nov 5th.

Honestly, Evil, can you imagine the fights over who at HQ gets to take it home for the holidays? shock

Fish is good - a nice low maintenance fish. They (the MNHQ gin-swillers) have enough to do without constant tank cleaning and such like. It's be quite soothing to watch.

Could we call him Derek?

Still trying to work out how someone accidentally eats their pet. confused

Could we have a sloth please? It's a fact that it's impossible not to go "aww" at the sight of a baby sloth.

Just wondering which of your pets you managed to accidentally consume, EvilTiggyD?

Grand idea, though! Any advance on elephant?

I'd love a tapir or, more practically, a pigmy goat.

I've always wanted a penguin, could we have one of those? I did enquire about getting one but you need a special licence hmm

But a fish might break my laptop if it splashes too much shock

A nest of vipers might be fitting, though.

We used to have a MN bat...

ArsenicSoup Tue 04-Nov-14 20:15:16

Accidentally. Ate. Theirs? hmm

BuilderMammy Tue 04-Nov-14 20:19:41

I had a dream once that I ate my cat's paws. She didn't mind at all. They were made of marshmallow and grew back again. maybe don't let me near the MN pet

For the love of God what will the bat think....... shock

lemisscared Tue 04-Nov-14 20:22:51

Chilean rose tarantula please

Spadequeen Tue 04-Nov-14 20:24:07

Just to echo the others, what and how did you accidentally eat a pet?!

ArsenicSoup Tue 04-Nov-14 20:24:09

Better to pick something larger than the average mouth?

RyanAirVeteran Tue 04-Nov-14 20:24:56

The is not best pleased....
