How old were you and what was it called?
Mine was a fish. My brother won a fish at a fair and I cried until my mum agreed to buy one for me too. I think I was about 7/8. She was called Topsy, as was the next fish and the next and...

I got a dog called Heidi when I was about 3, I totally adored her, she slept in my bedroom until she had to be put down when I was 17, I was devastated, she was the only animal I ever liked. I'm certainly not an animal lover and there's no chance my kids are having any pets.

When I was born, my parents already had pets, but the first pet that was bought for me, was a gerbil called Peter. My little sister had one called Paul. Should have been Pauline though, lots of gerbil babies.

On my ninth birthday I got a budgie and we were totally devoted to each other until he died aged 13. My friends at school used to get bored with me talking about him and drawing pictures of him all the time!

Mine was a guinea pig called Suzie, who my mum came across when she was doing supply teaching. Suzie was alone and ignored at the school, so Mum brought her home, and we bought her another guinea pig to share with who we called Toffee. They loved each other, and when Toffee died suddenly (ahem, after being dropped by my little sister) Suzie cried for a couple of days and then died about a week after that. It was very sad, and I *might* have been a bit unfair to my sister totally blaming her for the whole sorry affair.

My nana had a king charles spaniel called Biddy who was there when I was growing up. Sadly she was runover when I was about 6 or 7. Then when I moved to my mum's she had akita dogs. Oh and we had a grass snake called Thumper.

I can't remember not having animals growing up so I'm not sure what my first was. The first animal that I got to choose was a kitten called Chester. My lovely cat had been run over and I was distraught so my mum said I could go to our local pet shop and see if they had any. The owner knew me so let me buy one. The firs animal I actually paid for was a guinea pig called Spice and I bought it with my birthday money and all the hutch and bits for him.

Same as Pip really. At one point we had about seven cats and two dogs. The first pet that was definitely mine was a gerbil called Mrs Brown but I don't remember at any time 'wanting' her.
