Mr. Pigeon's Pet

You may remember that quite a while back (almost a year in fact) I asked you to tell me what you would like to see happen at The Pigeon Loft this year. The overwhelming majority of you said that you'd like to see Mr. P with one or more little baby pigeons.



Do you want to know what Mr.Pigeon thought about that idea?










He wasn't entirely keen.


In fact, I'm not sure he even knows where baby pigeons come from.

Where do baby pigeons come from, Mr.P?










...








...the pigeon obviously knows more than I gave him credit for.

Anyway, Mr.Pigeon is quite used to his bachelor lifestyle, but did think he would like some company, so I suggested he get a pet to look after.


Obviouly it would have to be a fairly low-maintenance pet for a pigeon to look after and, bearing in mind the various gingerbread man- related incidents, it was crucial that Mr.P's new pet was not edible.


We settled on the idea of a pet rock- it wouldn't need walking, wouldn't make much noise and wouldn't make much mess.


Now, you can get tame pet rocks like these.....













...in specialist rock pet shops like this one.


But if you're really lucky...











...you might stumble across a wild one in your garden...









Aww...








Come back soon to see how Mr.Pigeon and bird's best friend, Spot, are getting on :)

Leave it to Mr. P to find a really exciting new pet in the wild! And here I was all excited because I'm getting a new kitten later this month...... (Oh, who am I kidding, I'm still excited!) By the way, Homer sends regards and feels pretty mistreated that he doesn't have a pet. Hmmmmm...............

Fancy Mr.P being a wild rock tamer as well!

Spot looks like a lovely pet and not at all wild!

*LOL* Mr. P is so talented, perhaps he will start taming stick insects, and bad tasting (inedible) caterpillars next!

Too too cute! I hope that Ginger hasn't been eaten though!

Mr P's pet is lovely! But I think you should follow his very clear instructions and get crocheting baby pigeons (only don't make them as scrawny as the real deal!)

The only wild pet rocks we have huddle in herds around the pond!

Oh what cute rocks you have there at the Pigeon Loft - ours are all jagged and flinty!

I can see Mr P and Spot are going to get on really well :-)

Awww, Spot is fab. My two are after pets at the minute - I wonder if a rock would placate them?
