Mason Exotics


I like my axolotl
I keep her in a bottle
And if I’m feeing cross or mad
Or down or hurt or bad
I pull the cork and let her out
With fiery roar and shout
She flashes sparks and bellows loud
And throws her weight about
And when the monster’s scared
my friends made them hide upstairs
I catch the raging, stamping beast…and put her right back there.
Axolotl in a bottle, I really like you such a lotl.

It was warm and cosy under my covers til Mason kicked them out!

No, she doesn't need it!

We've had her since she was 11 weeks old, and she's now two. She's been raised with Jasper and Poppy, the Springer Spaniels, as well as the cats..
When we first had her, we took her everywhere with us - out in the car, to other people's houses, meeting all new people.. and as a result, she's really chilled out and well socialised!

They only spray as a last resort defence, and she's never been scared enough to actually do it! :)
