DH and SFA's

There's been a few mentions recently of various DH's and their attitudes to furries. I started wondering how involved DH's are and what their general feelings are towards the little critters.

My DH moans about the mess, the time they take up, the amount I spend on them and the huge cages which take up a lot of room, but whenever he leaves the house he always goes to say goodbye to them and if I'm carrying one out to the run, he always takes it for a cuddle. I'm thinking he likes them really grin

We got he boars when my DD ased for a pet (she wanted a hamster but I've never had one)

DH was a bit hmm - I suppose like all parents he knew children lose interest in pets.

He grumbled at having to convert the playhouse into the Pighouse (mainly because it was his birthday)

But since the boys arrived , they have been Family Pets.
My son is a negligent dad to GP2 (even though GP2 'bought' a Fathers Day Card and chocolate for DS)

DH will happily cuddle a pig. He buys veg,
DC and I were away for half-term. DH pig-sat. He brought them in each night for a cuddle and TV . Even cleaned the Pighouse wink

He asks "are the boys out/ boys in" so he does care. Though TBH with DD and I , no-one else gets a look in.
I was cuddling GP1 last night - he was very judgey that it was me not DD.

With DD he's a Cornetto eating Teddy Bear.
I got the little rat face shock

I think DH is more obsessed with piggies than I am!

No word of a lie - DH just walked in the room and said, "I love pigs!" grin

Your DH's sound like pigophiles! Mine is a pig whisperer - he is the only one who can get Scruffy to be quiet.

DH is sitting like that Bond villan with GP1 on his lap.

" Sooooo, Meester Bond..."
